  • Clinical features and radiographic examination [ Time Frame: 6 monthes and one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: October 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A
teeth which are treated with Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) material
Procedure: pulpotomy
removal of caries and cronal pulp tissue and then restoring of tooth
Other Name: pulpotomy
Experimental: B
teeth which are treated with new Endodontic Cement (NEC) material
Procedure: pulpotomy
removal of caries and cronal pulp tissue and then restoring of tooth
Other Name: pulpotomy

Detailed Description:

Forty patient are selected randomly. Each patient has at least 2 teeth which require pulpotomy treatment. After removing of carious teeth by a low speed round bur and pulp exposure, roof of pulp chamber is removed completely by a high speed 008 fissure bur. Life tissues of pulp are removed by sharp excavator and rinsing with normal salin. Hemostat is achieved and cavity will be cleaned by 0.5% hypo chlorate solution. MTA or NEC material is mixed according to manufacturer instruction and will be placed in pulp chamber and over pulpal canal orifices for at least 1 mm. The light cure glass inomor is also mixed according to manufacturer instruction and is places over the A or B material and cured for 40 minutes. The treated tooth will be restored with a stainless steel crown or amalgam filling material.
