Direct pulp capping in primary molars using a resin-modified Portland cement-based material (TheraCal) compared to MTA with 12-month follow-up: a randomised clinical trial

Direct pulp capping in primary molars using a resin-modified Portland cement-based material... Aim This study was to compare the success of resin-modified Portland cement-based material (TheraCal) with MTA in direct pulp capping (DPC) of primary molars. Methods Symmetrical bilateral primary molars (92) from 46 healthy subjects aged 5–7 years were included in this split- mouth randomised clinical trial. DPC for small non-contaminated pulp exposures using either TheraCal or MTA were randomly performed in symmetrical molars. Thereafter, teeth were restored with amalgam. Clinical and radiographic evalua- tions were performed at 6 and 12 month follow-ups. Data were analysed using Chi square test at a significance level of 0.05. Results At the final follow-up session 74 teeth were available. After 12 months, the overall success rates for MTA and Thera- Cal were 94.5 and 91.8%, respectively. The difference between outcomes of the two groups was not statistically significant (P > 0.05).
