Partial pulpotomy was performed by amputating 2 mm of the exposed pulp, hemostasis was achieved, and the tooth was randomly assigned for the placement of either white MTA (White ProRoot; Dentsply, Tulsa, OK) or CH (Dycal; Dentsply Caulk, Milford, DE) as the pulpotomy agent. Generally, a tooth diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis can be treated and maintained successfully with conventional root canal treatment. Introduction: This study aimed to assess the outcome of partial pulpotomy using mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) compared with calcium hydroxide (CH) in mature cariously exposed permanent molars. Partial pulpotomy is originally indicated for the treatment of mechanically-exposed immature permanent incisor using calcium hydroxide (Ca[OH]2) for pulp capping and zinc oxide-eugenol for cavity filling/sealing and permanent restoration at the next session. This is the first randomized clinical trial to combine mature teeth in adult patients with clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of irreversible pulpitis treated with partial pulpotomy. Our study is the first to report the long-term outcome of pulpotomy using a tricalcium silicate cement (Biodentine) in mature permanent teeth for up to 5 years; other studies13, 14, 15, 22 have mostly involved teeth in younger patients and shorter follow-up periods. Describing the Immediate failure occurred in 4 teeth. The objective of the present systematic review is to evaluate the success of pulpotomy in mature permanent teeth presented with irreversible pulpitis. The treatment options starts from indirect pulp capping, direct pulp capping, partial pulpotomy, full pulpotomy, apex genesis, apexification and ending up with revitalization. Long-term Pulpal and Restorative Outcomes of Pulpotomy in Mature Permanent Teeth. In these situations, dentists may opt to do a pulpotomy. In a study, Taha et al reported that placement of MTA over the pulp after a partial pulpotomy in mature adult teeth that were clinically diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis had a good success rate over a 2-year follow-up. Sex did not have a statistically significant effect on the outcome. However, emerging scientific evidence has shown that such teeth treated with pulpotomy as a first line of treatment provides increasingly predictable results. The aim of this randomized controlled trial is to compare partial pulpotomy treatments with Biodentine®, calcium hydroxide (CH) and Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) in cariously exposed asymptomatic young permanent teeth clinically and radiographically for 1 year and evaluate root developments with Image J Software Program.

Biodentine is one of the recently developed Tricalcium silicate-based materials and could be used for deep and wide coronal tooth decay, restoration of the deep cervical and root lesions, in direct pulp … In another study, Asgary and Ehsani performed pulpotomy with new endodontic cement on 12 permanent … Clinical and radiographic evaluation was completed after 6 months and 1 and 2 years postoperatively. The type of definitive restoration was a potential predictor for late failure (P < .05). Sometimes during the process of removing deep decay, the pulp is exposed, and without treatment it can become infected with bacteria and die. But other large-scale multicentered clinical trials are strongly encouraged to substantiate this hypothesis. Mass and Zilberman found successful results up to 91.4% after a minimum of 12 months, performing partial pulpotomy in the treatment of cariously exposed immature permanent molars. Partial pulpotomy is a procedure in which the damaged and inflamed pulp tissue Sharawy WW, Ahmed HMA. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.joen.2017.03.033. This study aimed to assess the outcome of partial pulpotomy using mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) compared with calcium hydroxide (CH) in mature cariously exposed permanent molars. Conclusion:This treatment can be a realistic alternative for mature permanent human molars with irreversible pulpitis symptoms. Further studies of partial pulpotomy with new biocompatible agents are indicated to evaluate whether the promising results from the treatment of imma-ture teeth may become applicable to an adult population.

The partial pulpot- omy for carious exposures is a procedure in which the inflamed pulp tissue beneath an exposure is removed to a depth of one to three millimeters or deeper to reach healthy pulp tissue. A one year follow-up of partial pulpotomy and calcium hydroxide capping in primary molars. Fifty permanent molar teeth with carious exposures in 50 patients >20 years old were included. Statistical analysis was performed using the Fisher exact test. Fifty-two patients (61 teeth) with a median age of 40 years (range, 21–75 years) were included in this study; 17 (32.7%) men and 35 (67.3%) women were treated and reviewed. At 1 year, MTA showed a higher tendency toward success compared with the CH group, and the difference was statistically significant after 2 years (83% vs 55%, P = .052 at 1 year; 85% vs 43%, P = .006 at 2 years). Partial pulpotomy has also been reported to be successful in treatment of pulps exposed by caries, in tempor- ary and permanent molars, although the number 238 of treated permanent teeth is rather limited (7=9 The aim of the present study was, therefore, further to evaluate the outcome of partial pulpotomy Of pulps exposed bv excavation in, posterior permanent teeth with deep carious lesion.

They also reviewed the indications of partial pulpotomy in permanent teeth, which included teeth with no history of spontaneous pain or with acute minor pain that subsides with analgesics, absence of discomfort to percussion, no vestibular swelling and no mobility, normal radiographic appearance of periodontal attachment, pulp exposed during caries removal or subsequent to recent trauma, and … Short-term failures were few and managed by pulpectomy. After achieving hemostasis they covered However, there are as yet the only two following studies evaluated the outcome of MTA pulpotomy in symptomatic mature permanent teeth with carious exposure. Partial Pulpotomy in Mature Permanent Teeth with Clinical Signs Indicative of Irreversible Pulpitis: A Randomized Clinical Trial. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Partial pulpotomy is also indicated in young permanent teeth with pulp exposure due to caries, provided that the bleeding can be controlled within several minutes. The following databases were searched: PubMed, Oral and Dentistry Database, Cochrane, and CINAHL plus. Pulpotomy in mature permanent cariously exposed teeth preserves the remaining pulp tissues, but long-term outcomes of the pulp and the restoration are unknown. Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the clinical applicability of various MTA materials as partial pulpotomy materials in permanent teeth. This prospective study examined the immediate and long-term status of the pulp and the restored tooth and identified potential predictors of early and late failures in teeth that were asymptomatic or experiencing only mild symptoms at the time of treatment. The success (in terms of pulp survival) of approximately 90% up to 5 years is comparable with previous studies, confirming the … Preoperative pulpal and periapical diagnosis was established based on a history of presenting pain, results of cold testing, and radiographic findings. In 1998, Nosrat and Nosrat[11] performed partial pulpotomy on six permanent molars (four adolescents, 10–15 years of age, and two adults, 20 and 27 years of age) with deep carious lesions and pulpal involvement. Pulpotomy in Mature Permanent Molars Using Biodentine Versus MTA The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. is article describes the partial pulpotomy of a cariously a ected immature permanent teeth and the follow-up for year. These HSCs showed favorable biocompatibility and antimicrobial properties in partial pulpotomy of permanent teeth in long-term follow-up, with no statistical differences between clinical factors. Traditionally, pulpotomies are considered an emergency procedure for permanent mature teeth until root canal treatment can be accomplished.7 Several studies have assessed the outcome of MTA pulpotomy in symptomatic mature permanent teeth and their results have been promising. J Endod, 43(9):1417-1421, 30 Jun 2017 Cited by 4 articles | PMID: 28673494 Moreover, in another study, Pro-Root MTA showed no radiographic signs of failure or clinical symptoms over a 2-year Partial pulpotomy has been performed in carious exposures in young, asymptomatic teeth or teeth with symptoms of irreversible pulpitis with a high success rate , with increasing evidence that preserving pulp vitality is more attainable than previously thought. However, neither of the latter two methods has given satisfactory results. Partial pulpotomy of immature anterior permanent teeth with complicated crown fractures: Report of two cases. Postoperative periapical radiographs were taken after placement of the permanent restoration. After informed consent, the tooth was anesthetized, isolated via a dental dam, and disinfected with 5% sodium hypochlorite before caries excavation. © 2017 American Association of Endodontists. © 2019 American Association of Endodontists. Int Dent Res 2017;7:71-75. Methods: Partial pulpotomy was performed on 104 permanent teeth from 82 people (mean 29.3±14.8years old), who met the inclusion criteria in randomized clinical trial. This was higher than the success rates in teeth treated with a coronal pulpotomy, which were 91,4 % and 85,9 %, respectively. Taha NA, Khazali MA. ments, the partial pulpotomy technique is a worthy alternative, particularly for immature permanent teeth with exposed vital pulps. Teeth with immature roots should show continued root development and apexogenesis. Partial pulpotomy for carious exposures. immature permanent teeth; extending the borders of indication towards cariously exposed immature permanent teeth with reversible pulpitis may abolish the necessity of pulpectomy. In mature teeth, a pulp exposed by caries is ustially removed and the root canals are filled. Pulpotomy was performed using the aseptic technique and a tricalcium silicate cement under local anesthesia. Seltzer S, Bender IB The dental pulp, 2nd ed., Philadelphia, JB Lippincott Co, pp 172-176, 252-256, 318-320, 1975 Zilberman U, Mass E, Sarnat H. Partial pulpotomy in carious permanent molars. Even partial removal of the injurious challenge can have a marked effect on clinical outcome; direct pulp capping and partial pulpotomy (Fig. Eghbal et al. MTA partial pulpotomy sustained a good success rate over the 2-year follow-up in mature permanent teeth clinically diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis. Teeth were assessed for up to 5 years for pulpal and apical signs and symptoms, restorative marginal integrity, and periodontal health. Dentin bridging and pulp health were more predictable with MTA pulpotomy [18, 27]. have reported that in partial pulpotomy of mature permanent teeth clinically diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis, ProRoot MTA sustained a good success rate (85%) over the 2-year follow-up [18]. Eleven late failures occurred between 2 and 4 years: 1 tooth with intact coronal restoration had pulp necrosis and asymptomatic apical periodontitis, 4 had recurrent caries resulting in asymptomatic apical periodontitis, 4 remained vital and only needed new restorations, 1 was unrestorable, and 1 was extracted for periodontal reasons. Clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of irreversible pulpitis were established in all teeth. Keywords: Irreversible pulpitis, Full pulpotomy, Mature permanent teeth, Permanent teeth, Pulpitis, Pulpotomy. remaining part (5). In immature teeth the usual procedure in\olves treating exposed vital pulps with capping or pulpotomy and dressing with calciutn hydroxide. None of the investigated clinical variables affected success rates significantly. 3 They also noted that more than half of the calcium hydroxide cases failed within 2 years. partial pulpotomy in curiously exposed young permanent teeth. Taha et al. Methods: Fifty permanent molar teeth with carious exposures in 50 patients >20 years old were included. It was concluded that the present, as well as previously reported results indicate that partial pulpotomy may be an adequate treatment for young permanent molars with a carious exposure, although more studies are needed before the treatment can be recommended for routine clinical use.
