New horizon in the treatment of Pulp Therapy in young permanent molars

Ricardo Caicedo CSE, CSHPE

The primary objective of pulp therapy is to maintain the integrity and health of the teeth and their supporting tissues.

The primary and young permanent dentitions have a greater potential for repair than the more mature permanent dentition. The pulp exposures have traditionally been treated with formocresol or ferric sulphate pulpotomies or calcium hydroxide pulp capping.  Calcium Silicate-Base Cements currently are the optimum materials for use in vital pulp therapy. This live webinar presentation will discuss evidence-based findings about MTA-CS base cement when is used as direct pulp capping and as a pulpotomy agent in primary and immature permanent teeth.

Participants will learn:

  • List the indications and contraindications for vital pulp therapy.
  • Discuss the pulp reactions to CS-Base MTA capping material.
  • Discuss the CS-Base Cements higher success rate than FC for pulpotomy in primary molars whose pulps have been compromised by a carious or mechanical pulp exposure.
  • Demonstrate that CS-Base Cements can be used as a material for direct pulp capping and pulpotomies in primary teeth.
  • Recognize that CS-Base Cements provides better long-term results after direct pulp capping compared with Calcium Hidroxide.
  • Describe indirect pulp therapy and partial pulpotomy for carious exposure in the young permanent molar.
