Direct pulp capping with Biodentine – case reports
Direct pulp capping is a conservative, biologically acceptable and reliable method of preserving the vitality of the exposed pulp. It can successfully be considered as an alternative treatment to pulpectomy. Biodentine is a biocermic material preferred for its bioactive nature, excellent adhesion to the underlying dentin, low degree of solubility and very good physical and handling qualities. The teeth in the presented clinical cases remained asymptomatic, without radiographic changes and with normal EPT values.
