 Course Description:

In the past years there has been an influx of bioactive dental materials in the market aiming to improve biocompatibility and the response of the dentin-pulp complex when pulp protection therapies are indicated. These materials have different features in composition, indications, and handling technique. Not all these materials have science to support effectiveness clinically. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the materials clinicians have available for pulp protection, their mechanism of action, and overall success rates of pulp capping therapies in adults.

 Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Learn about what is in the word “bioactive” in dental materials
  2. Review and differentiate types of pulp protection materials
  3. Learn about success rates of direct and indirect pulp capping for adult patients and useful clinical tips for placement
