Resumen

ZAROR SANCHEZ, Carlos; VERGARA GONZALEZ, Carolina; DIAZ MELENDEZ, Jaime  y  ARACENA ROJAS, Daniel. Ferric Sulfate and MTA Pulpotomies in Primary Teeth: a Case Series. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2011, vol.5, n.1, pp.77-82. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2011000100012.

In eleven patients 7 pulpotomies were performed with Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) and 6 with ferric sulphate (FS). We included patients who had primary teeth with accidental exposure of the pulp during caries removal in the absence of clinical signs and symptoms and / or radiographic evidence of pulpal pathology. The treated pieces were restored with preformed stainless steel crowns and controlled clinically and radiographically every 6 months. The average follow-up was 15.6 months for both groups, with clinical success of 100% for both treatments. Radiographic success was 85.71% for the MTA and 83.33% for SF.Although both procedures showed good performance during the clinical and radiographic follow-up period, the SF was cheaper and required less working time, a desirable characteristic in pediatric dentistry.

Palabras clave : pulpotomy; primary teeth; ferric sulfate; mineral trioxide aggregate.
