Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate, clinically and radiographically, the dentin bridge formation potential of white mineral trioxide aggregate (white MTA) when used in pulpotomy treatments in primary molars. Methods: A total of 23 primary molars received a pulpotomy treatment using white MTA followed by stainless steel crown restoration and controlled 6 months after treatment. Results: Clinical and radiographic success was 100% as none of the molars showed any clinical or radiographic pathological signs. Reparative dentin deposition was found in some of the cases: stenosis was present in 69.2% of the pulp canals from mandibular molars and formation of dentin bridges was seen in 11.5% of the pulp canals from mandibular molars 6 months after treatment with white MTA.
