Abstract :

Background: Indirect pulp capping in primary teeth, however, is more rarely conducted than permanent teeth, since it thought to have low impact and most suggestion is for taking caries lesion aggressively on primary teeth. Purpose: The study was aimed to evaluate the subjective complaint, clinical symptom, and radiographic appearance of indirect pulp capping treatment using glassionomers cements in primary molar. Methods: Twenty children in range of age 6 to 8 years old, who visited Clinic of Pediatric Dentistry Airlangga University Dental Hospital, Surabaya Indonesia, were the subject of study. They had one occlusal dental caries on one side of maxillary or mandibular primary molar with the diagnose of pulpitis reversible. The experimental group, had indirect pulp capping treatment with glass-ionomer cements (GC Fuji VII), while the control group, had indirect pulp capping treatment with calcium hydroxide (Metapaste). Each group was filled with GC Fuji IX as permanent restoration. After one week, one month, and three months later, the observations were made on subjective complaint, clinical symptom, and radiographic appearance. Results: The results showed no subjective complaint such as pain or problem on mastication; no negative clinical symptoms such as pain on palpation, gingivitis or periodontitis, and abnormal tooth mobility; no negative radiographic appearance such as pathological apical radioluscency, internal or external resorbtion, and change of ligament periodontal width- after the treatment. Conclusion: The study suggested that indirect pulp capping treatment using glass-ionomer cement materials on primary teeth might be considered to be the treatment choice.
