Coiffage pulpaire direct : indications, protocole et perspectives

Abstract : Nowadays, during his practice, the dentist has for essential preoccupation the conservation of the pulp vitality. One of the procedures of this conservation is the direct pulp capping: this is a treatment which consists, in case of pulp exposure and through a biomaterial, to maintain the pulp vitality of a tooth. Calcium hydroxide is the first material to be used and is considered to be the "gold standard" for pulp capping. However, in recent years, materials based on calcium silicate have appeared and are excellent alternatives to calcium hydroxide: we speak of Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA), Biodentine™ and Theracal. This work presents, in a first part, the different indications and the local and general contraindications to the technique of direct pulp capping. The second part presents the different biomaterials available, and their physicochemical and biological properties. The clinical operating steps as well as the follow-up and prognosis are then treated. The third and last part proposes a discussion around this clinical procedure and its perspectives.
