Long-term evolution of a case of direct pulp capping by adhesion to dentin
González-López, Santiago/Bolanos-Carmona, Victoria
This article presents the long-term follow-up of a female patient who suffered pulp exposure during removal of a large caries lesion from the mandibular right first molar. The clinical decision to perform direct pulp capping was made. The tooth was treated with 5% chlorhexidine, etched with 37% phosphoric acid, and then restored with Heliomolar composite after application of Gluma dentin adhesive. The patient was followed for more than 8 years.
