Abstract


One of the major problems facing the dentist who treat children, especially the primary dentition, is the maintenance of a health dental pulp which has been advocated for use in the treatment of the involved pulp. One treatment that has received wide acceptance clinically, chemically and histologically, for the purpose of maintaining a healthy radicular pulp, is the application of formocresol for pulpotomy in primary teeth. A pulpotomy or vital amputation, on primary teeth is the procedure of removing the coronal part of the pulp tissue, and a medicament is applied on the orifice of the remaining tooth tissue, as a result of deep caries, and the maintenance of vital pulp tissue. The most widely accepted medicards for pulpotomy in primary teeth is formoresol, but as a 1/5 dilution of the original Buckley's formula. Although the pulpotomy treatment has its limitation, the use of formocresol is the medicament of choice. The difficulties in diagnosing primary teeth as vital and health through clinical and radiographic findings needs a thorough examination but accurate and precised. The intention of this paper is to help in understanding the importance of pulpotomy treatment on primary teeth, the right indication, formocresol mechanical response, and step by step procedures of the pulpotomy treatment. We hope that it can broaden our mind and knowledge to the importance of pulpotomy treatment on primary teeth with on-fifth diluted formocresol (20%).
