Seventy primary molar teeth, carious exposed, symptom free, without any sign of root resorption in children aged from 3 to 6 years (main age 4.3 yr) were treated with conventional pulpotomy procedures. Ferric sulfate 15.5% solution (applied for 15 second for 35 teeth) and formocresol solution (five minute procedure of Buckley's formula for next 35 teeth)(More)
OBJECTIVES The aims of this study are to assess the feasibility of the Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART) approach in primary teeth and to compare the ART approach with traditional amalgam restorations in primary molars. METHODS This study was conducted in a paediatric dentistry clinic in Kuwait between April 1999 and December 2001. The ART and(More)
Ninety-six patients, fifty-eight healthy patients and thirty-eight special needs patients, ranging in age from 3 to 31 yr (average age 6.9 yr) had received dental treatments under general anesthesia (GA) at Amiri Hospital.

AIM The objective of this study was to compare the effects of ferric sulphate (FS) to that of the full strength of formocresol (Buckley's formula) (FC) as pulpotomy agents in primary human molar teeth 42-48 months after treatment. This was to assess the succeeding premolar teeth for decalcification, abnormal morphology or any other defect. METHODS Seventy(More)
Using selective agonists and antagonists of alpha2 adrenoceptors, attempts were made to identify the subtype alpha2 adrenoceptors in the blood vessels of the canine dental pulp. In chloralose-anaesthetized dogs, intra-arterial administration of noradrenaline and guanabenz in different doses produced a dose-related pulpal vasoconstriction which was measured(More)
Pulpal circulation is microcirculation, whose primary function is to transport the nutritive and return the waste metabolic products. As pulp is surrounded by a solid dentin sheath, proper regulation of its circulation, and of intra- and extracellular fluid levels is of utmost importance for the normal function of the pulp in physiologic conditions as well(More)
