The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the influence of various predictors on healing outcomes after direct pulp capping (DPC) using either mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) or calcium hydroxide (CH) as a pulp-dressing agent. The present study included 172 mature asymptomatic permanent teeth with carious-exposed pulp. The teeth were treated with DPC, using either MTA or CH, and the treatment outcome was evaluated clinically and radiographically. The effect of potential clinical… CONTINUE READING
