Regenerative Endodontics: Reparative Dentin Formation
Topic: Pulp Capping
The induction of reparative dentin formation after caries removal and pulpal exposure continues to be a clinical challenge. Calcium hydroxide, the paragon in direct pulp capping has been replaced with the introduction of mineral trioxide aggregate. This presentation will review currently available pulp capping agents and explore histological evidence in humans that support the use of this bioactive silicate cement. Case controls will be presented that have been completed using a two-visit protocol.
One half-day lecture with keynote.
Dr. Bogen has no proprietary, financial and/or personal interest pertaining to his presentation to disclose.
