Description

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.

Objectives

Objectives
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.
