Indications: The pulpotomy procedure is indicated when caries removal results in pulp exposure in a primary tooth with a normal pulp or reversible pulpitis or after a traumatic pulp exposure. Radicular pulp haemostasis is most commonly achieved using cotton pellets soaked with a formocresol solution in 1:5 dilution for five minutes or 15.5% ferric sulfate for 15 seconds. It kills bacteria and converts the pulp tissue into inert compounds. Indications: The pulpotomy procedure is indicated when caries removal results in pulp exposure in a primary tooth with a normal pulp or reversible pulpitis or after a traumatic pulp exposure. Summary and conclusions. Formocresol mutagenicity following primary tooth pulp therapy: Effects of selected inflammatory mediators in blood flow and vascular permeability in the dental pulp. TECHNIQUE
