Pulpotomy is the term for removal of the coronal pulp with the intent of maintaining .. With a partial pulpotomy, only a portion of the dental pulp is removed from the pulpal chamber. The roots should show continued normal development and maturogenesis. In immature permanent teeth, cervical pulpotomy is performed to allow maturation of the root. A long time ago, as a postgraduate endodontics student, I was wondering if it was possible to preserve the infected pulp instead of totaly remove it. Shoji and colleagues reported the results of some preliminary studies on the treatment of amputated pulps (pulpotomies) in dogs by CO2 laser radiation.73 Wilkerson and colleagues reported favorable pulpal responses of healing and repair in swine following pulpotomies using an argon laser.74 Moritz and associates applied 200 direct pulp caps in adult patients after mechanical pulp exposures.75 Half of the teeth (control group) received a conventional calcium hydroxide pulp cap. Medicaments The pulpotomy site is then covered with a therapeutic base (see below). This medication could be zinc oxide eugenol or a mineral trioxide aggregate. Adult pulpotomy. Introduction Also called as calcium hydroxide pulpotomy or young permanent partial pulpotomy Proposed by Mejare and cvek … (B) A calcium hydroxide pulpotomy stimulated the formation of a calcific barrier (arrow) and enabled the root to mature, demonstrating apical closure and root wall thickening. Cvek pulpotomy is indicated for the management of traumatic pulpal exposure in a young permanent tooth with an incomplete root end closure. Although normal vitality tests (e.g., electrical and thermal sensitivity tests) are reliable after pulp capping, they are not usually helpful in the pulpotomy-treated tooth. However, formocresol has been labeled as a carcinogen, and its use is being abandoned.22,43 Other techniques that have been investigated with positive outcomes include the use of ferric sulfate63 and electrosurgery.8 Evidence of the effectiveness of MTA pulpotomies in primary teeth is positive and encouraging,4,32,40,56 in addition to its successful outcomes for permanent teeth (Fig. Endodontic débridement (pulpectomy or pulpotomy) most predictably relieves the pain of irreversible pulpitis.204 When débridement is not possible, clinicians may prescribe strong analgesics and penicillin in an attempt to relieve the pain. Some researchers110,154 believe that pulp capping and pulpotomy procedures invariably lead to progressive calcification of the root canals. Once a full root canal is done, there is no pulp left in the tooth to cause any trouble. 17-11). A thick paste of hard-setting zinc oxide–eugenol is prepared and placed over the pulp stumps. All remaining dental caries, as well as the overhanging enamel, should be removed to provide good access to the coronal pulp. 23-30). Epub 2012 Feb 6. In multirooted teeth, the procedure may be simplified by removing tissue to the orifices of the root canals. The treatment is also completed during a single appointment. Copious irrigation is mandatory to avoid pulp injury. The outcome of a Cvek pulpotomy may be compromised by a luxation injury that diminishes the tooth’s blood supply and innervation. Despite many impressive scientific advancements, these controversies remain unsettled here in the twenty-first century. Dean, in McDonald and Avery Dentistry for the Child and Adolescent (Ninth Edition), 2011, The pulp response to formocresol has been compared with electrosurgical coagulation after pulpotomies in the teeth of monkeys by Ruemping and associates.67 The sample size was not large, and the observation periods were relatively short (maximum was 2 months after the operation), but the results of their histologic study showed the electrosurgical technique to be as favorable as the full-strength formocresol technique. If the symptoms continue and pulpectomy is needed, the MTA may be removed using an ultrasonic instrument and an operative microscope. It is generally agreed that pulp-capping procedures should be limited to small exposures produced accidentally by trauma or during cavity preparation or to true pinpoint carious exposures that are surrounded by sound dentin (Figure 13-8). 2015 Nov 27;3(4):133-156. doi: 10.3390/dj3040133. Partial pulpotomy for traumatic exposures (Cvek pulpotomy). The use of either calcium hydroxide or MTA can be recommended in the treatment of permanent teeth with carious pulp exposures when there is a pathologic change in the pulp at the exposure site.13,14 This procedure is particularly indicated for permanent teeth with immature root development but with healthy pulp tissue in the root canals. 2013 Jan;23(1):56-63. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-263X.2012.01224.x. The surface of the remaining pulp is then irrigated with bacteriocidal irrigants such as sodium hypochlorite or chlorhexidine until bleeding has ceased. Many alternatives, including MTA, sodium hypochlorite, ferric sulfate, electrosurgery, and lasers, have been investigated to replace formocresol as the medicament of choice for pulpotomy. The tooth is then restored with a stainless steel crown (Fig. Conclusions: Partial pulpotomy due to a traumatic exposure is also known as Cvek Pulpotomy. It involves removing 1−3 mm of inflamed pulp, leaving the healthy vital cell-rich pulp to aid healing post trauma. El tiempo transcurrido entre el traumatismo y la atención, y el grado de desarrollo apical no son factores MTA has clinical success rate comparable to CH as a pulp dressing material for partial pulpotomy in permanent molars with carious exposures. These dental procedures sound similar, but they are done for different reasons.  |  From: Problem Solving in Endodontics (Fifth Edition), 2011, Ralph E. McDonald, ... Jeffrey A. good prognosis after a Cvek pulpotomy, the prognosis in teeth with pulp exposures of more than 4 mm has not yet been clarified. A full account of the Cvek pulpotomy is provided in Chapter 17 (see Fig. -, J Endod. Laboratory and clinical observations indicate that a different technique and capping material are necessary in the treatment of primary teeth than in the treatment of permanent teeth. In addition, Dean et al demonstrated no statistically significant difference between the electrosurgical and formocresol pulpotomy techniques in a prospective clinical study involving 50 children requiring at least one pulpotomy.70 The children were randomly divided into two groups, with 25 undergoing the electrosurgical technique and 25 undergoing the formocresol technique. 1972 Jul;34(1):122-30 In these teeth, root canal treatment will follow at the next appointment. A surgically clean technique should be used. As a result of these observations, two specific pulpotomy techniques have evolved and are in general use. The follow-up period ranged from 25.4 to 45.6 months with an average of 34.8 +/- 4.4 months. 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. Would you like email updates of new search results? Pulp treatment for extensive decay in primary teeth. Persistent bleeding from an inflamed pulp usually indicates that the tissue should be resected at a deeper level to preserve a vital apical pulp stump (see Apexogenesis). JOA & EL: The calcium hydroxide partial pulpotomy developed and analyzed by the late Dr. M. Cvek has been the standard procedure for crown fractures with pulp exposures for decades. It is reasonable to substitute a eugenol-free cement as the therapeutic base. Partial Pulpotomy (Cvek’s Pulpotomy) • Definition: It is the removal of only the outer layer of damaged and hyperemic tissue in exposed pulps, is considered to be a procedure staged between pulp capping and complete pulpotomy. However, histologically better results have been shown more recently with MTA as the pulp-capping agent.1,140,198,200,228 MTA is thus recommended as the pulp-capping agent of choice in cases that do not extend deeply into the roots, where subsequent retrieval may present considerable challenge. However, if the tissue in the pulp canals appears hyperemic after the amputation of the coronal tissue, a, The Role of Endodontics After Dental Traumatic Injuries, Cohen's Pathways of the Pulp (Tenth Edition), PAULA J. WATERHOUSE, ... ANNA B. FUKS, in, Because of the historical track record of formocresol, Pulp Therapy for the Young Permanent Dentition, Handbook of Pediatric Dentistry (Fourth Edition), Managing Traumatic Injuries in the Young Permanent Dentition, Dennis J. McTigue, ... Janice G. Jackson, in, AL W. READER, ... KENNETH M. HARGREAVES, in, Pulp therapy for primary and immature permanent teeth, The Journal of the American Dental Association. The removal of the coronal portion of the pulp is an accepted procedure for treating both primary and permanent teeth with carious pulp exposures. Thus most of the bacterially infected tissue will have been removed before actual pulp exposure occurs. 7 years ago. Despite the continuing common use of formocresol, other materials and techniques have been studied and are used regularly in practice. In partial pulpotomy (Cvek pulpotomy), 2 mm of the pulp below the exposure are removed, leaving a wound of healthy pulp, where dressing should be placed over. What are the indications for pulpotomy? Figure 35.5. They reported a 99.4% success rate (one failure) for this, Problem-Solving Challenges in Dentin Hypersensitivity and Vital Pulp Therapy, James L. Gutmann DDS, Cert Endo, PhD (honoris causa), FACD, FICD, FADI, Paul E. Lovdahl DDS, MSD, FACD, FADI, in, Problem Solving in Endodontics (Fifth Edition), McDonald and Avery's Dentistry for the Child and Adolescent (Tenth Edition), ). Finally, a core material should be used to seal the tooth before the final restoration, ideally with a full coverage restoration. Int J Paediatr Dent. A good restoration that prevents bacterial penetration into the tooth is essential for the success of a Cvek pulpotomy. Reports have demonstrated the potential for continued apical development after formocresol pulpotomy in young permanent teeth,77,191,256,315 and several authors have reported better results with the diluted rather than the full-strength form. Earlier texts have suggested that teeth, which are to have a preformed metal crown, should also have a routine elective pulpotomy, regardless of whether they have a carious pulp exposure. Mean follow-up was 34.8 months (range 25.5 to 45.6 months), and success was comparably favorable in both Ca(OH)2 (91%) and MTA (93%) groups. This procedure is performed in teeth in which it is assumed that healthy pulp tissue, with a potential to produce a dentin bridge and complete the formation of the root, still remains in the root canal. 2014 Aug 6;(8):CD003220. He covered the pulp stumps with CaOH and reported a success rate of 96%. There was no statistically significant difference between results for the two techniques, although the electrosurgical group did have four failures whereas two failures occurred in the formocresol group. In contrast, partial pulpotomy is considered a more conservative approach in comparison with complete pulpotomy. -. The partial pulpotomy advocated by Cvek has become a viable alternative for treating pulp exposures in vital teeth with incomplete root end closure [].Cvek pulpotomy is indicated for the management of traumatic pulpal exposure in a young permanent tooth with an incomplete root end closure. Thus, routine reentry to remove the pulp and place a root canal filling after completion of root development is contraindicated unless dictated by restorative considerations such as the necessity for a retentive post. 3 They also noted that more than half of the calcium hydroxide cases failed within 2 years. The tooth is subsequently prepared for full-coverage restoration. Nevertheless, calcific obliteration, internal resorption, and pulp necrosis are potential sequelae of pulp-capping and pulpotomy procedures which should be screened for during recall appointments. Remove 1–2 mm of pulp using a high-speed diamond bur, as described above. C) Munksgaard, 1993. USA.gov. Calcium hydroxide remains the standard material for pulp capping of normal vital pulp tissue; it can possibly stimulate the repair reaction. It involves removing 1−3 mm of inflamed pulp, leaving the healthy vital cell-rich pulp to aid healing post trauma. A Complicated Crown Fracture: The Cvek Pulpotomy The Cvek pulpotomy is a useful technique for the management of a complicated crown fracture of vital incisors with open or closed apices. If hemostasis cannot be achieved, pulpotomy is no longer indicated as the pulp tissue is inflamed and hyperemic. 35.4B demonstrates complete maturation of the root, including apical closure and dentinal wall thickening, as well as a calcific barrier at the amputation site. There were 34 patients (17 males and 17 females) with 51 teeth available for evaluation. The Cvek pulpotomy is a useful technique for the management of a complicated crown fracture of vital incisors with open or closed apices. In a study, Taha et al reported that placement of MTA over the pulp after a partial pulpotomy in mature adult teeth that were clinically diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis had a good success rate over a 2-year follow-up. More often, however, it indicates pulpal hyperemia and inflammation, which makes the tooth a poor risk for vital pulpotomy. Following hemostasis with saline and a pulp cap of calcium hydroxide overlaid with a sealing coronal restoration, Cvek reported success in an impressive 94% to 96% of cases (Fig. However, the reverse is true, in that all teeth that have had a pulpotomy should be restored with a stainless steel crown. 13-9). A standardized operative procedure was followed in both groups. However, if the tissue in the pulp canals appears hyperemic after the amputation of the coronal tissue, a pulpotomy should no longer be considered. This position is no longer tenable given the predictable success of indirect pulp capping. -, Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol Endod. 2019 Sep 15;96:35-54. doi: 10.1016/j.actbio.2019.05.050. In their classic report, Cvek50 described a pulpotomy technique where only the superficial 2 to 3 mm of hyperplastic inflamed tissue was removed with a water-cooled high-speed diamond bur102 to place the wound in a healthy site. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. If hemostasis could not be secured after several minutes of saline-moistened cotton pellet application, the preparation was checked carefully for residual superficial tags of bleeding tissue which had not been fully removed, or questions were asked about the condition of the underlying pulp. Dr. Alex . The inflamed pulp is gently removed to a level approximately 2 mm below the exposure site with a sterile diamond bur at high speed. These dental procedures sound similar, but they are done for different reasons. The treatment of permanent teeth by the pulpotomy method has resulted in a higher rate of success when the teeth are selected carefully based on existing knowledge of diagnostic techniques. ASGEIR SIGURDSSON, ... NOAH CHIVIAN, in Cohen's Pathways of the Pulp (Tenth Edition), 2011. 17-13). 1993 Dec;19(12):591-5 partial vital pulpotomy and direct pulp-capping, it requires long-term follow-up and its prognosis always remains open. 17-11). If the treatment material in direct contact with the pulp also has some inherent quality that promotes, stimulates, or accelerates a true tissue-healing response, so much the better; however, vital pulp tissue can recover from a variety of insults spontaneously in a favorable environment. These efforts have generated considerable controversy and debate as proponents of specific materials and methods attempt to justify their chosen techniques. The tooth shown in Fig. In a complete pulpotomy, all of this material is removed from the chamber up until the point where the root's surface area, called the cementum, meets the dentin that resides just beneath the enamel in the upper part of the tooth (the crown). 23-29, C; Fig. Dentists recommend root canal treatment after determining a tooth's pulp has died or become infected. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. The partial pulpotomy advocated by Cvek has become a viable alternative for treating pulp exposures in vital teeth with incomplete root end closure [ 2 ]. Few data are available to verify the optimal application time, although García-Godoy and colleagues have suggested that, based on their limited work with pulpotomies in dogs, a 1-minute application time may be adequate and perhaps superior to the recommended 5 minutes.17. One year after treatment, the success rate for teeth in the experimental group was 89%, whereas the success rate in the control group was 68%. After root completion, the tooth could easily be reentered, the pulp extirpated, and routine endodontic therapy performed. Although some success has been reported,179 vital pulp therapy in permanent teeth with a history of pain has generally been contraindicated. A partial cevk for traumatic exposures is also called a Cvek Pulpotomy. Jeffrey A. Place a glass ionomer cement base over the calcium hydroxide and restore the tooth with composite resin. The pulp stumps should be excised cleanly, with no tissue tags extending across the floor of the pulp chamber. Whereas a pulpotomy involves the partial removal of a tooth’s pulp, a pulpectomy involves the complete removal of pulp tissue in a tooth as the first step in root canal treatment. In experimental animals, the results were the same whether the crowns were fractured or ground off.55 Direct invasion of vital pulp tissue by bacteria did not occur, although the pulps were left exposed to saliva. Methods: 2020 Sep 5;2020:8855331. doi: 10.1155/2020/8855331. The Cvek pulpotomy procedure involves the removal of contaminated pulp tissue with a clean round high-speed diamond bur, using saline or water irrigation. Because formocresol is caustic, care must be taken to avoid contact with the gingival tissues. Epub 2019 May 27. Dennis J. McTigue, ... Janice G. Jackson, in Pediatric Dentistry (Sixth Edition), 2019. Some go back to the time when treatment decisions were made empirically. J Clin Med. The long-term success reported by Fuks and colleagues confirms these findings and indicates that this conservative removal of tissue is the treatment of choice (Figs. Acta Biomater. Smaïl-Faugeron V, Glenny AM, Courson F, Durieux P, Muller-Bolla M, Fron Chabouis H. Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2020 Apr 1;9(4):984. doi: 10.3390/jcm9040984. 35.5 and 35.6).21. MTA has been shown to perform well in pulpotomies, causing dentinal bridge formation while maintaining normal pulpal histologic features.22,23 As noted previously, however, its tendency to stain teeth is a clinical concern.19 See Chapter 34 for details on its use. Epub 2014 Jun 26. (A) Maxillary right permanent central incisor suffered crown fracture with pulp exposure. Pulpotomy in caries-exposed immature permanent molars using calcium-enriched mixture cement or mineral trioxide aggregate: a randomized clinical trial. The tooth is subsequently prepared for full-coverage restoration. The answer has historically been no, except as a short-term, pain-relieving exercise. I Mejàre 1 , M Cvek. The partial pulpotomy can offer a superb outcome for the treatment of complicated crown fractures of the young permanent tooth. He also stated that the size of the ex- posure and the time between the accident and the treatment are not critical for the recovery of a pri-marily healthy pulp. Once hemostasis is obtained, the chosen material is placed and the tooth is restored. Adult Pulpotomy. The dentist elected to remove all tissue in the pulp chamber, with obvious success. Methods: Restorable permanent first molars (64) with carious pulp exposures were randomly assigned to two groups; CH and MTA. Group 1 consisted of 31 teeth with no clinical or radiographic symptoms … Follow-up of MTA pulpotomies in 15 children with immature molars revealed no clinical or radiographic failures at 12 months, though four pulps had undergone calcific metamorphosis.65 In a 2006 clinical report,326 investigators described a series of 23 irreversibly pulpitic anterior and posterior teeth in children and adolescents, treated by full coronal pulpotomy, hemostasis for 1 minute with 6% NaOCl, and wound dressing with MTA. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. A major disadvantage of this treatment method is that sensitivity testing is not possible owing to the loss of coronal pulp, so radiographic follow-up is extremely important to assess for signs of apical periodontitis and ensure the continuation of root formation. Formocresol pulpotomy procedures can only be recommended as temporary treatments on permanent teeth with necrotic pulps, where clinical success after 3 years has been reported.301 The formocresol pulpotomy has particularly been performed in preference to extraction when routine endodontic treatment was not economically viable. A ‘partial pulpotomy’ may be performed at any level of the pulp space, as there are great benefits in preserving the apical part of the pulp in traumatized incisors. -, Am J Dent. The dressing materials in both groups were then covered with a layer of light cured glass ionomer cement.  |  Results: No overhanging dentin from the roof of the pulp chamber or pulp horns should remain. Therefore in anterior teeth, routine endodontic therapy after completion of root development is contraindicated unless clinical signs and symptoms of pathosis are present or unless such therapy is necessary for restorative procedures (e.g., placement of a post for retention of a crown because of missing tooth structure). In the pulpotomy procedure, the tooth should first be anesthetized and isolated with the rubber dam. Partial Pulpotomy with Mineral Trioxide Aggregate in Permanent Incisors with Complicated Crown Fracture: 5-Year Follow-Up. If haemostasis is achieved, the tooth can be dressed and restored to normal function with good prognosis. However, eugenol in direct contact with pulp tissue causes chronic pulpitis. Bleeding was controlled and pulp dressed with either a paste of non-setting Ca(OH)2 followed by a setting layer of Ca(OH)2, or with grey MTA. 2017 Jan 13;2(1):1-6. doi: 10.5152/eej.2017.16053. pulpotomy: [ pul-pot´ah-me ] root canal therapy involving partial removal of dental pulp from a tooth. eCollection 2020. Studies involving cavity preparations into teeth that left areas of impacted food, debris, and bacteria in contact with pulp tissue resulted in inflammation extending from 1 to 9 mm into the pulp, with abscess and pus formation.55,113 The extent of inflammation in the pulp of a cariously exposed pulp is therefore difficult to judge, with the expectation that pulpotomy may be less predictable than posttraumatic exposure. HHS 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. Pulpotomy is the term for removal of the coronal pulp with the intent of maintaining the vitality of the remaining radicular pulp tissue.54 Pulpotomy techniques using formocresol on primary teeth have been a standard in pediatric dentistry for decades. Smaïl-Faugeron V, Courson F, Durieux P, Muller-Bolla M, Glenny AM, Fron Chabouis H. Cochrane Database Syst Rev. COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. Pulpotomy Technique. Dental Material Choices for Pulp Therapy in Paediatric Dentistry. The steps are as follows: Place rubber dam to isolate the operating field – this is mandatory. Even the pulpotomy procedure, however, is likely to result in a high percentage of failures unless the teeth are carefully selected. Thus biocompatible neutralization of any existing pulpal contamination and prevention of future contamination (e.g., microleakage) are worthy goals in vital pulp therapy. This level of pulp amputation is chosen arbitrarily because of its anatomic convenience. The procedure begins with anesthesia, rubber dam placement, and superficial disinfection as with pulp capping and partial pulpotomy. When a baby tooth or young permanent tooth is traumatised - say, hitting your teeth on the handlebars of a bike - it can be broken in such a way that the pulp is exposed. NIH (C) Blood clot after pulp amputation. Again, a partial pulpotomy may help it to finish developing and be saved. It is difficult to determine clinically how far the inflamed pulp extends. Whereas a pulpotomy involves the partial removal of a tooth's pulp, a pulpectomy involves the complete removal of pulp tissue in a tooth as the first step in root canal treatment. The Partial Pulpotomy or Cvek technique consist in the amputation of exposed pulp 1 or 2 mm below exposure. This philosophy is based on the pulpectomy procedure having a success rate in the range of 95%, whereas if apical periodontitis develops, the prognosis of root canal treatment drops significantly to about 80%.125,131, PAULA J. WATERHOUSE, ... ANNA B. FUKS, in Cohen's Pathways of the Pulp (Tenth Edition), 2011. Coronal pulp is removed with a round bur on a slow speed handpiece, and hemostasis is achieved by the application of a cotton pellet for no more than 5 min (Fig. Introduction Also called as calcium hydroxide pulpotomy or young permanent partial pulpotomy Proposed by Mejare and cvek in 1978 It is a procedure in which the inflamed pulp tiss ue beneath an exposure is removed to a depth o f 1-3 mm 4. A non-setting calcium hydroxide paste is then placed directly onto the uncontaminated pulp tissue (see Step 5. below). Unlike total pulpotomy, Cvek pulpotomy implies the conservation of cell-rich coronal pulp tissue which is … Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol. Patients were scheduled for follow-up at 3, 6, 12 months and annually thereafter. 1-3mm) of coronal pulp after trauma, whereas a full pulpotomy is the full removal of the coronal pulp. They reported a 99.4% success rate (one failure) for this pulpotomy technique. The procedure involves removal of 1 to 3mm of inflamed pulp tissue beneath an exposure to reach the level of healthy pulp tissue. It is essential that the calcium hydroxide is placed over pulp tissue, and not over a blood clot. The partial pulpotomy advocated by Cvek has become a viable alternative for treating pulp exposures in vital teeth with incomplete root end closure . Traumatic exposures after more than 72 hours or a carious exposure of a young tooth with partially developed apex are two examples of when this treatment may be indicated. 13-10). Partial pulpotomy was also found to be successful in a randomized controlled trial233 that compared Ca(OH)2 and MTA pulpotomies in the permanent molars (n = 64) of children. The mean age at treatment was 63.6 months and the mean postoperative observation time was 10.9 months. The use of MTA as the capping agent has again met with success in the hands of the authors and others.261. After pulp capping and pulpotomy, the patient should be seen periodically for 2 to 4 years to determine success. The work of Kakehashi and colleagues9 and of Walshe,10 which is described later in this chapter, supports the desirability of using a surgically clean technique to minimize bacterial contamination of the pulpal tissue. Therefore, you do not have to worry about how the pulp is doing. J Dent. When a baby tooth or young permanent tooth is traumatised - say, hitting your teeth on the handlebars of a bike - it can be broken in such a way that the pulp is exposed. Mejàre and Cvek179 followed 31 initially symptom-free teeth for a mean of 56 months (range 24 to 140 months) and found 93.5% healing. Hemostasis was then secured before capping with an appropriate material. Source. Pulpotomy vs. Pulpectomy. Reports do, however, support this pulp-preserving approach even to symptomatic teeth.261 Of the six teeth with temporary pain, widened periodontal ligament space, and/or condensing osteitis managed in Mejàre and Cvek's study,179 by Ca(OH)2 pulpotomy, 66.7% healed. In a follow-up study of clinically successful pulpotomies,50 researchers removed the pulps 1 to 5 years later for restorative reasons and found the tissue to be histologically normal.53 They concluded that changes seen in the pulps do not present sufficient histologic evidence to support routine pulpectomy after pulpotomy in accidentally fractured teeth with pulp exposures. In 1978, Cvek noted that in most cases of pulps exposed for more than a few hours, the initial biological response is pulpal hyperplasia.20 Inflammation in these cases rarely extends beyond 2 mm.
