The term chronic hyperplastic pulpitis is attributed to the development of granulation tissue, most of the times covered with epithelium and resulting from long-standing, low-grade irritation.
On the basis of clinical and radiographic examination, diagnosis of chronic hyperplastic pulpitis with respect to tooth 26 was made.
and Caliskan reported that hyperplastic pulpitis associated with periapical involvement presented as radiolucencies or radiopacities on radiographic examination.
Root canal therapy or even extraction is recommended for the teeth with hyperplastic pulpitis as damage to the crown is of such an extent that it cannot be restored.
On the basis of favorable outcome of abovementioned case, biodentine pulpotomy can be stated as a promising alternative treatment modality for the tooth with chronic hyperplastic pulpitis. However, appropriate case selection such as age of patient, restorability of crown, and inflammatory status of pulp remain important criteria to get the successful outcome.
Condensing osteitis and chronic hyperplastic pulpitis in the same pulpally involved tooth.
Common indications for root canal therapy were necrotic pulp 47.5% involving 95 teeth, irreversible pulpitis 42.5% involving 85 teeth, trauma 6.5% involving 13 teeth, short obturation 2.5% involving 5 teeth and chronic hyperplastic pulpitis 1% involving 2 teeth.
