This randomized clinical trial was conducted to examine and compare the effectiveness of pulpotomy
in primary molars treated with calcium silicate-based materials--two MTA products (i.e., ProRoot MTA and MTA-P) and BD--and FS as the control material.

The aim of the present study was to assess the initial response of the dental pulp in rats, following pulpotomy
and pulp capping with substances containing green propolis.
After amputation of the inflamed coronal pulp (pulpotomy
), recovery of the non-inflamed radicular pulp can develop along one of three lines:
If this inflammation is confined to the pulp chamber and spares the root canals, pulpotomy
is indicated.2 Various medicaments have been used over the years to perform pulpotomy
including glutaraldehyde, formocresol, ferric sulpahte, calcium hydroxide etc and the quest for the ideal agent continues.
Staining potential of Neo MTA Plus, MTA Plus, and Biodentine used for pulpotomy
Although the prophylactic pulpotomy
is one of the treatment options of VDRR cases, it is not recommended due to lack of sufficient evidence for a good prognosis (21).
Should pulp chamber pulpotomy
be seen as a permanent treatment?
abscessus infections after dental pulpotomy
in Georgia commenced approximately 1 year after the second case was diagnosed; 20 cases among children were ultimately identified (8) (Melissa Tobin-D'Angelo, Georgia Department of Public Health, personal communication, June 2018).
Calcium silicate cements are bioactive materials used in various endodontic indications, such as pulp capping, pulpotomy
, apexogenesis, apexification, perforation repair, and root-end filling [1-4].
(40) These properties favor mineralization on MTA surface when used in pulpotomy
, (41,42) the formation of mineralized tissue in the apical tissues of dog's teeth, and the sealing of furcation perforation.
If the tooth has an inflamed pulp, partial pulpotomy
with MTA is suggested for an immature tooth and conventional root canal treatment for the mature tooth.
