Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the results of using mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) in pulpotomy procedures in primary teeth. Methods: Seven patients were selected and a total of 20 molars and two canines were treated with pulpotomy procedures using MTA instead of formocresol. Results: After 6 months, 55% of the molars and 100% of the canines treated showed radiographic signs of dentin bridge formation. Also, 6 months after treatment, 60% of the molars showed root canal calcification (obliteration). Color change of the crown of the canines treated was noticeable. No clinical or radiographic signs of pathology was observed.
