A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial of Pulpotomy versus Root Canal Therapy in Mature Teeth with Irreversible Pulpitis: Outcome, Quality of Life, and Patients’ Satisfaction
CE Hours: 1.0
Description: Vital pulp therapy is increasingly practiced as an alternative treatment to root canal therapy (RCT) in teeth with carious pulp exposure. The aim of this study was to compare the outcome, quality of life (QOL), and patients’ satisfaction after full pulpotomy and RCT in mature teeth with irreversible pulpitis.
At the conclusion of this article, the reader will be able to:
- Discuss the biological bases for performing full pulpotomy in teeth with symptoms of irreversible pulpitis.
- Describe the procedure of full pulpotomy in teeth with irreversible pulpitis
- List the outcome measures and the reported success rates for full pulpotomy compared to RCT.
