However, maintaining some pulp tissue in the crown allows the dentist to monitor the vitality of the tooth and thus is preferable when possible. In immature permanent teeth, cervical pulpotomy is performed to allow maturation of the root. Pulp capping should be considered only for teeth in which there is an absence of pain, with the possible exception of discomfort caused by the intake of food. Some researchers110,154 believe that pulp capping and pulpotomy procedures invariably lead to progressive calcification of the root canals. If hemostasis cannot be achieved, pulpotomy is no longer indicated as the pulp tissue is inflamed and hyperemic. 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. In anterior teeth, if calcification of the canal has made conventional endodontics impossible, surgical endodontics may be performed with relative ease. Pain during caries removal and instrumentation may be an indication of faulty anesthetic technique. A surgically clean technique should be used. Dental Material Choices for Pulp Therapy in Paediatric Dentistry. If the hemorrhage is controlled readily and the pulp stumps appear normal, it may be assumed that the pulp tissue in the canals is normal, and it is possible to proceed with pulpotomy. 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. He covered the pulp stumps with CaOH and reported a success rate of 96%. 3 They also noted that more than half of the calcium hydroxide cases failed within 2 years. The surface of the remaining pulp is then irrigated with bacteriocidal irrigants such as sodium hypochlorite or chlorhexidine until bleeding has ceased. Although the recommendation is that the blotted cotton pellet moistened with a 1:5 concentration of formocresol be applied to the pulp stumps for 5 minutes, the 5-minute application time has been determined somewhat arbitrarily. He also stated that the size of the exposure and the time between the accident and the treatment are not critical for the recovery of a pri100 marily healthy pulp. 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. Cvek (3) has demonstrated a high success rate when pulp exposures in crown-fractured teeth were treated by partial pulpotomy. Only teeth free of symptoms of painful pulpitis are considered for treatment. In these teeth, root canal treatment will follow at the next appointment. partial vital pulpotomy and direct pulp-capping, it requires long-term follow-up and its prognosis always remains open. 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). The coronal pulp is removed as in partial pulpotomy but to the level of the root orifices. It is a mode of treatment which is widely used in the permanent dentition but less so in primary teeth. (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. The dressing materials in both groups were then covered with a layer of light cured glass ionomer cement. 2020 Sep 5;2020:8855331. doi: 10.1155/2020/8855331. 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. Patients were scheduled for follow-up at 3, 6, 12 months and annually thereafter. J Dent. Conclusions:  |  The coronal part of the dental pulp is removed. A standardized operative procedure was followed in both groups. eCollection 2020. It is also known as Cvek pulpotomy. 17-11). The Cvek Pulpotomy on Immature Permanent Teeth. The techniques and procedures discussed in the following pages represent the standards as we perceive them at this writing. These dental procedures sound similar, but they are done for different reasons. Adult pulpotomy. (B) Removing pulp to a depth of 2 mm with sterile diamond bur. Place a non-setting calcium hydroxide paste over the remaining pulp and then cover this paste with a hard-setting calcium hydroxide cement or liner. Pulpotomy is an established technique for preserving vital pulp functions in immature teeth which have been subject to pulp-exposing trauma. 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. To complicate this issue further, the predominant belief is that pulp therapies appropriate for permanent teeth may not always be equally effective in treating similar conditions in primary teeth. El tiempo transcurrido entre el traumatismo y la atención, y el grado de desarrollo apical no son factores There was no statistically significant difference in the success rate of teeth treated with CH (91%) in comparison to teeth treated with MTA (93%). doi: 10.1002/14651858.CD003220.pub3. Both the ferric sulfate and sodium hypochlorite solutions were rinsed off with water to verify that no blood clot was present before restoration. Exposures exceeding 2 mm and those in which bleeding could not be controlled within 1 to 2 minutes were excluded from this study. 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. 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. Source. Rivera and colleagues71 obtained results similar to those of Dean and associates; however, Fishman and colleagues72 found considerably lower success rates with the use of electrosurgical pulpotomy. No attempt is made to control the hemorrhage until the coronal pulp has been amputated. The inflamed pulp is gently removed to a level approximately 2 mm below the exposure site with a sterile diamond bur at high speed. Dennis J. McTigue, ... Janice G. Jackson, in Pediatric Dentistry (Sixth Edition), 2019. A full account of the Cvek pulpotomy is provided in Chapter 17 (see Fig. 2015 Nov 27;3(4):133-156. doi: 10.3390/dj3040133. In the pulpotomy procedure, the tooth should first be anesthetized and isolated with the rubber dam. Affiliation 1 Department of Pedodontics, Eastman Dental Institute, Stockholm, Sweden. National Center for Biotechnology Information, Unable to load your collection due to an error, Unable to load your delegates due to an error. Since inflamed pulp sometimes extends past the canal orifices into the root pulp, many mistakes are made that result in treatment of an inflamed rather than noninflamed pulp. The material comprised 37 young posterior teeth with deep carious lesions and exposed pulps, treated with partial pulpotomy and dressed with calcium hydroxide. CVEK,S PULPOTOMY 1. Copious irrigation is mandatory to avoid pulp injury. 5.3).If hemostasis cannot be achieved, pulpotomy is no longer indicated as the pulp tissue is inflamed and hyperemic. The treatment is also completed during a single appointment. NIH Each group began with 25 treated teeth, and at the end of 24 months of follow-up, of the teeth available for study, no statistically significant difference was found among the 4 groups. The age of patients at the time of restoration ranged between 6.8 to 13.3 years (mean of 10.3 +/- 1.8 years). Partial Pulpotomy for Traumatic Exposures. NLM 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. On the other hand, Cvek 3, in a clinical report of partial pulpotomy in 60 children's teeth with treatment delay between 1 h to 90 days, concluded that time was not critical for healing of an initially healthy pulp, based on treatment success rate of 96.7% (Table 1). More often, however, it indicates pulpal hyperemia and inflammation, which makes the tooth a poor risk for vital pulpotomy. The other half (experimental group) received a calcium hydroxide cap after first undergoing CO2 laser radiation until the “exposed pulps were completely sealed.” The teeth were monitored monthly. Remove 1–2 mm of pulp using a high-speed diamond bur, as described above. 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. Methods: Restorable permanent first molars (64) with carious pulp exposures were randomly assigned to two groups; CH and MTA. The pulpotomy procedure involves removing only part of the pulp, eliminating tissue that has inflammatory or degenerative changes and leaving intact the underlying healthy pulp tissue.15 This is then covered with a wound-dressing agent in an effort to promote healing at the amputation site. 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. The technique for cervical pulpotomy in immature permanent teeth is similar to that for primary teeth, and the dressing material should maintain pulp vitality and function. Abstract — The material comprised 37 young posterior teeth with deep carious lesions and exposed pulps, treated with partial Restorable permanent first molars (64) with carious pulp exposures were randomly assigned to two groups; CH and MTA. (A) Maxillary right permanent central incisor suffered crown fracture with pulp exposure. Dentists recommend root canal treatment after determining a tooth’s pulp has died or become infected. 35.4 had been fractured for 4 days with a pulp exposure approximately 3 mm in diameter. If there is evidence of hyperemia after the removal of the coronal pulp, which indicates that inflammation is present in the tissue beyond the coronal portion of the pulp, the technique should be abandoned in favor of pulpectomy or the removal of the tooth. A Cvek pulpotomy will only be a partial removal (i.e. HHS Even the pulpotomy procedure, however, is likely to result in a high percentage of failures unless the teeth are carefully selected. 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. The only common denominator to this reaction was the presence of dentin chips that had accidentally been pushed into the radicular pulp tissue. Anna B. Fuks, Eyal Nuni, in Pediatric Dentistry (Sixth Edition), 2019. A sharp discoid spoon excavator, large enough to extend across the entrance of the individual root canals, may be used to amputate the coronal pulp at its entrance into the canals. Epub 2012 Feb 6. Smaïl-Faugeron V, Courson F, Durieux P, Muller-Bolla M, Glenny AM, Fron Chabouis H. Cochrane Database Syst Rev. A Cvek pulpotomy is indicated on immature incisors, with vital pulps, that have endured a complicated crown fracture. 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. 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), 2011. Their effectiveness has been proved over time, if not by science, and they represent the benchmarks against which newer techniques are compared. Figure 35.5. 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. It is done in cases where the pulp is exposed after a traumatic injury. Hemostasis was then secured before capping with an appropriate material. The mean age at treatment was 63.6 months and the mean postoperative observation time was 10.9 months. The use of the other 3 medicaments was as follows: MTA: the pulp stumps were covered with an MTA paste made by mixing of the MTA powder with sterile saline at a ratio of 3:1, Ferric sulfate: 20% ferric sulfate solution was used to burnish the pulp stumps for 15 seconds with a syringe applicator, Sodium hypochlorite: a 5% NaOCl-saturated cotton pellet was placed on the pulp stumps for 30 seconds. Owing to its higher success rate, many clinicians have totally abandoned the direct pulp cap in favor of pulpotomy. 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. 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), ). This procedure involves removal of the entire coronal pulp to a level of the root orifices. Follow-up between 6 and 53 months (mean 19.7 months) revealed that 79% had healed, 16% were healing, and only 5% had evidence of persistent disease. A full account of the Cvek pulpotomy is provided in Chapter 17 (see Fig. An excellent prospective randomized clinical trial was conducted by Fernandez and others,18 comparing the use of formocresol, MTA, sodium hypochlorite, and ferric sulfate. The dentist elected to remove all tissue in the pulp chamber, with obvious success. The question then is whether such techniques can be applied to posterior teeth, and especially to those with symptomatic cariously-affected pulps. 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. Absolute isolation to prevent contamination of the pulp with oral bacteria is essential. Because of the likelihood that the dressing will be placed on an inflamed pulp, full pulpotomy is contraindicated in mature teeth. Some go back to the time when treatment decisions were made empirically. Pulpotomy Technique. These efforts have generated considerable controversy and debate as proponents of specific materials and methods attempt to justify their chosen techniques. John Winters, ... Richard P Widmer, in Handbook of Pediatric Dentistry (Fourth Edition), 2013. Pulpotomy vs. Pulpectomy. The pulp-capping procedure has been widely practiced for years and is still the favorite method of many dentists for treating vital pulp exposures. Thus biocompatible neutralization of any existing pulpal contamination and prevention of future contamination (e.g., microleakage) are worthy goals in vital pulp therapy. 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. Dean, in McDonald and Avery's Dentistry for the Child and Adolescent (Tenth Edition), 2016. 3 They also noted that more than half of the calcium hydroxide cases failed within 2 years. Epub 2019 May 27. Calcium hydroxide remains the standard material for pulp capping of normal vital pulp tissue; it can possibly stimulate the repair reaction. In his study involving 60 teeth with pulps exposed from 1 hour to 90 days, Cvek removed only 2 mm of the pulp and the surrounding dentin. Key words: dental caries: pulp capping; partial pulpotomy. 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. The outcome of a Cvek pulpotomy may be compromised by a luxation injury that diminishes the tooth’s blood supply and innervation. 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. CONTENTS Introduction Indication Rationale Procedure Conclusion 3. Group 1 consisted of 31 teeth with no clinical or radiographic symptoms … 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.

Pulpotomy vs. Pulpectomy. The pulpotomy site is then covered with a therapeutic base (see below). However, they reported a high incidence of internal resorption, which increased in severity with longer periods of time.86,224. 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. Preference should be given to nonstaining white MTA products. The answer has historically been no, except as a short-term, pain-relieving exercise. These dental procedures sound similar, but they are done for different reasons. They reported a 99.4% success rate (one failure) for this pulpotomy technique. Cvek pulpotomy is indicated for the management of traumatic pulpal exposure in a young permanent tooth with an incomplete root end closure. The use of MTA as the capping agent has again met with success in the hands of the authors and others.261. The procedure begins with anesthesia, rubber dam placement, and superficial disinfection as with pulp capping and partial pulpotomy. Partial pulpotomy technique.
