The Best Obturation Material: Pulp Tissue
Conventional root canal treatment is a mainstay in any dental practice, endodontic treatment in effect is not a treatment of the pulp but a complete removal of the pulp organ and replacement with artificial materials. Furthermore, hydraulic calcium silicate materials are also being used more readily to repair perforations and to fill root ends. This lecture outlines the use of these materials to preserve the pulp and change the norms of endodontic practice by incorporating definitive adult pulpotomy procedures into everyday practice.
