For many years the only treatment for symptomatic teeth with deep caries was pulpectomy and RCT or extraction. Now a third option exists for many such teeth “vital pulp therapy”. This is a technique where only the highly inflamed section of the pulp is removed and the remaining pulp preserved using materials which stimulate the pulpal tissue to repair thus maintaining the vitality of the tooth.
1. Better understanding of the current science on the pulp’s response to deep caries.
2. Recognise the different appearances of a pulpal exposure.
3. Recognise the appearance of vital pulp tissue.
4. Handling of and placement of tricalcium silicate cements on vital pulp.
5. Place Biodentine on an exposed pulp in an artificial tooth.
