Abstract


Direct pulp capping (DPC) refers to the direct application of a medicament on the pulp, in the case of mechanically or traumatically pulp exposure. This technique is reported to be highly successful following the development of biocompatible medicaments in recent years and has contributed to the successful treatment for carious teeth with pulp exposure. Using mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), DPC was performed on an immature permanent mandibular right molar tooth with extensive caries in a 9-year-old male patient. The patient did not complain of any postoperative pain. Furthermore, an increase in the length of the root and the thickness of the canal wall was observed. Based on these findings, the treatment was considered to be successful. Furthermore, this report discusses the guidelines and indications for the treatment of immature permanent carious teeth with pulp exposure via DPC using MTA.
