AIM To prospectively compare the clinical success rate of partial pulpotomy treatment in permanent molars using calcium hydroxide (CH) and mineral trioxide aggregates (MTA) as pulp dressing agents. METHODS Restorable permanent first molars (64) with carious pulp exposures were randomly assigned to two groups; CH and MTA. A standardized operative procedure was followed in both groups. Following isolation and caries removal, the exposed superficial pulp tissue layers were removed with a sterile… CONTINUE READING
