Deep CARIES with clinical pulp exposure - Dr. Domenico Ricucci


In the previous video, Dr. R discussed the biological bases to treat deep caries without pulp exposure.



In this post he is discussing all those clinical situations in which, despite the clinical diagnosis of “reversible pulp inflammation”, a pulp exposure is revealed during caries excavation.

Many clinicians erroneously believe that “an exposed pulp is a condemned pulp”. Many patients are suffering because too many teeth today are unnecessarily root canal treated. This belief originates from previous studies reporting very low success rate after direct pulp capping. These studies shall be critically reviewed.
