Aim: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical and radiological success of using the antioxidant mixture as a new medicament for the pulpotomy of milk teeth.
Materials and Methods: This study was performed on 30 molars in children aged 6 to 9 years. A pulpotomy procedure was performed, followed by the placement of an antioxidant (mixed with saline) on the canal orifice, and then permanent filling with GIC was performed. The review was assigned at 3, 6, 9, 12 and 24 months, respectively, after treatment.
Results: Follow-up at 3 and 6 months was 100% successful, follow-up at 9 and 12 months showed respectively 96.2% clinical success and 92.5% radiographic success. After 2 years of observation, clinical success was 92.3 and radiological success was 89%.
Conclusion: The clinical and radiological success of the antioxidant mixture shows that it is an ideal agent for pulpotomy.
