One year after treatment, the success rate for teeth in the experimental group was 89%, whereas the success rate in the control group was 68%. Buckley’s original formula for formocresol calls for equal parts of formaldehyde and cresol (Sultan Chemists, Inc., Englewood, New Jersey, United States). Assessment of a novel alternative to conventional formocresol-zinc oxide eugenol pulpotomy for the treatment of pulpally involved human primary teeth: diode laser-mineral trioxide aggregate pulpotomy. 23.14).118 Success rates comparable to those of formocresol were also reported by Smith and coworkers.120 A higher percentage of internal resorption using FS and formocresol was reported by Papagiannoulis121 after a longer follow-up time; comparable results were seen in shorter postoperative examinations. Objective. When 2% unbuffered glutaraldehyde was used, over 96% clinical success was reported after 42 months.51,52 A 90% clinical success rate was reported after 1 year, where 2% buffered glutaraldehyde was applied for 5 minutes in pulpotomies.53 At follow-up after 2 years there was a failure rate of 18% as a result of internal resorption;54 the authors concluded that the relatively high failure rate reported in this study does not justify recommending a 2% buffered glutaraldehyde solution as a substitute to formocresol. 0000029620 00000 n ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V.

The age range at the time of treatment was 32 to 126 months, with a mean treatment age of 68.2 months. Although these techniques are currently being used by a number of practitioners, no long-term controlled clinical studies are available to evaluate their success, and studies have shown conflicting results.144–146, In summary, the search for alternatives to formocresol as a pulp dressing in primary tooth pulpotomies has yet to reveal an ideal agent or technique. 7-18).56 Research must still pursue the conditions in which a pulpotomy is the preferred treatment regimen rather than a direct pulp cap. At issue was the previous pediatric dentistry specialist's recomme… Fuks and associates107 reported a failure rate of 18% in human primary molars 25 months after pulpotomy, using a 2% concentration of GA. 0000001347 00000 n Patients have also suffered earth leakage burns from incorrectly grounded dispersive plates used in electrosurgical equipment. A recent systematic review and meta-analysis concluded that pulpotomies performed with either formocresol or FS in primary molars have similar clinical and radiographic success, and that FS may be recommended as a suitable replacement for formocresol.122 Based in these studies, FS can still be an appropriate and inexpensive solution for pulpotomies in primary teeth. Its efficacy has been extensively studied, with clinical success rates ranging from 70% to 100%, making it the standard against which newer techniques are compared. In a preliminary study comparing MTA with formocresol, with follow-ups ranging from 6 to 30 months, none of the MTA-treated teeth showed a clinical or radiographic pathologic process. Sweet’s original methodology called for the procedure to be accomplished over multiple appointments, where the formocresol was left in contact with the radicular tissue for long periods of time (2-3 days)(9). 0000026248 00000 n 0000042911 00000 n Some biological materials have been proposed as pulp dressings, on the theoretical basis that they would promote physiologic healing of the pulpotomy wound. sixty primary molars were either treated with Theracal LC or formocresol pulpotomy. Calcium hydroxide has had success in a variety of clinical situations including pulpotomy, root resorption, root-end closure, control of exudation and root canal infection.18, ANNA B. FUKS, JOE CAMP, in A Clinical Guide to Dental Traumatology, 2007. Formaldehyde is an important intermediate in normal cellular metabolism. 0000027909 00000 n 0000045070 00000 n Because of its cross-linking properties, penetration into the tissue is more limited, with less effect on periapical tissues. The apical third of the pulp is said to be unaffected, and remains vital for an extended period of time.6 The technique of applying formocresol in the pulpotomy on a Saltzman B, Sigal M, Clokie C, Rukavina J, et al. A thick paste of hard-setting zinc oxide–eugenol is prepared and placed over the pulp stumps. Shoji and colleagues reported the results of some preliminary studies on the treatment of amputated pulps (pulpotomies) in dogs by CO2 laser radiation.73 Wilkerson and colleagues reported favorable pulpal responses of healing and repair in swine following pulpotomies using an argon laser.74 Moritz and associates applied 200 direct pulp caps in adult patients after mechanical pulp exposures.75 Half of the teeth (control group) received a conventional calcium hydroxide pulp cap. Following coronal pulp amputation, one or more cotton pellets should be placed over each amputation site, and pressure should be applied for a few minutes. Int J Paediatr Dent 2005;15: 437–447. Because formocresol is caustic, care must be taken to avoid contact with the gingival tissues. Pulpotomy is defined as “the surgical removal of the coronal part of an exposed vital pulp as a means of maintaining the function and vitality of the remaining radicular pulp” [1]. Formulations with sulphonamides10 and later antibiotics were tried as intracanal medicaments; Grossman's polyantibiotic paste11 and Ledermix®12 (Haupt Pharma GmbH, Wolfratshausen, Germany) are examples of these types of dressings. In these cases, a coronal pulpotomy may be indicated. Since the material cannot be kept once the envelope is opened, its clinical use in pediatric dentistry practice becomes almost prohibitive. This tooth sensitivity is usually the first sign that your child may have caries.1 Your doctor will recommend that your child undergo a pulpotomy if, upon dental examination, it is discovered that your child has caries (tooth … H�b```f``�a`c`�Uc`@ V�(� g�k�G��{�b� ����I�&O'�����x�T��KXH��N����WO��2V�Ь>�M��,�#�ư�u�x̡��"ڀp�20�ei= 6��2�1���f��H�l{�h���g츉�FeC�����*9�W�v`�j�|�������&00M``P7�s�«��0�@$��2�c ��P� <=D� endstream endobj 73 0 obj 258 endobj 26 0 obj << /Type /Page /Parent 23 0 R /Resources 27 0 R /Contents [ 50 0 R 52 0 R 54 0 R 56 0 R 58 0 R 60 0 R 65 0 R 67 0 R ] /MediaBox [ 0 0 612 792 ] /CropBox [ 0 0 612 792 ] /Rotate 0 >> endobj 27 0 obj << /ProcSet [ /PDF /Text ] /Font << /F1 39 0 R /F2 30 0 R /F3 46 0 R /F4 45 0 R /F5 61 0 R >> /ExtGState << /GS1 68 0 R /GS2 71 0 R >> /ColorSpace << /Cs5 44 0 R /Cs9 62 0 R >> >> endobj 28 0 obj << /Filter /FlateDecode /Length 311 >> stream James L.

These teeth were followed up from 6 to 35 months. Such signs indicate that the tooth is not a good candidate for formocresol pulpotomy, and pulpectomy or extraction should be done. Clinical trials show that MTA performs equal to or better than formocresol or ferric sulfate 8,11,57-61 and may be the preferred pulpotomy agent in the future. Endogenous formaldehyde is present at low levels in body fluids, with a concentration of 2–3 mg/L in human blood. Guelmann and colleagues95 analyzed the success rates of emergency pulpotomies in primary molars. Furthermore, the histologic response of the primary radicular pulp to formocresol appears to be unfavorable. Pulp canal obliteration was detected in 13% of the teeth treated with formocresol and in 41% of those treated with MTA. While much has been written recently concerning the potential toxicity of formocresol, it should be noted also, that exposure to MTA dust and crystalline silica can cause respiratory irritation, ocular damage and skin irritation. However, the authors state that the cost of MTA may preclude its routine clinical use. Calcium hydroxide, while advocated since 1930,17 has gained popularity in endodontics in the last three decades. 0000002934 00000 n CROWN FRACTURES: A PRACTICAL APPROACH FOR THE CLINICIAN, When the pulp exposure is very large or when more than 2 weeks have passed since the injury, contaminants may cause extensive infection or inflammation 2 to 3 mm beyond the exposure. When the cotton pellets are removed, hemostasis should be apparent, although a minor amount of wound bleeding may be evident (see Fig. Until such an agent is found, formocresol (either in a one-fifth dilution or full strength), FS, or MTA can be used as capping agents in primary tooth pulpotomies.147. All of these preparations have a formaldehyde content well above the 10% normally used for fixation of pathologic specimens. The wide acceptance of formocresol owes to factors like ease of use and excellent bactericidal properties. (C) The pulps stumps are covered by a zinc oxide–eugenol base. Electrical and Formocresol Pulpotomy in Primary Molars The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. 0000030454 00000 n The IARC has determined that silica is a known human carcinogen. This solution is prepared by making a diluent of three parts glycerin and one part water. 0000001420 00000 n Traditionally, a 5-min application time has been recommended; however, contact times of only a few seconds are probably equally effective. The mean age at treatment was 63.6 months and the mean postoperative observation time was 10.9 months. Formocresol was introduced to treat non‑vital permanent teeth in the United States Tags of tissue remaining under ledges of dentin may continue to bleed, masking the actual status of the radicular pulp stumps and thus obscuring a correct diagnosis (Fig. 0000049843 00000 n 0000042150 00000 n Formaldehyde-containing materials, e.g. Ralph E.

The rationale and methods for preparing the tooth, crown selection, and placement o … White MTA has smaller particles and does not contain tetracalcium aluminoferrite or iron, both were found in gray MTA. Current techniques, however, aim to create a very superficial layer of fixation, while preserving the vitality of the deeper radicular pulp. 0000046629 00000 n 0000001991 00000 n A classic study claims that, subsequent to formocresol application, fixation occurs in the coronal third of the radicular pulp, chronic inflammation in the middle third, and vital tissue in the apical third.100 Others report that the remaining pulp tissue is partially or totally necrotic.101 Several reports have questioned the safety of formocresol,102,103 and most authorities now agree that formocresol is at least potentially mutagenic, carcinogenic, and toxic when used in high concentrations and under specific conditions in animal studies. A pulpotomy was performed on each molar; 53 teeth were treated with LLLT, and 53 teeth were treated using FC.

The postoperative observation time ranged from five … 0000028297 00000 n Glutaraldehyde (GA) has been proposed as an alternative to formocresol because it is a mild fixative and is potentially less toxic. Pulpotomized teeth were restored with amalgam in children with a mean age of … Background: Pulpotomy is an accepted treatment for the management of cariously exposed pulps in symptom free primary molars to achieve one of the most important goals for Pedodontists, which is the retention of the pulpally involved deciduous teeth healthy until the time of normal exfoliation. 0000045091 00000 n PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar The 1:5 concentration of this formula is prepared by, first, thoroughly mixing three parts of glycerin with one part of distilled water, and then adding four parts of this diluent to one part of Buckley’s formocresol, followed again by thorough mixing. Before local anesthesia administration, a thorough clinical examination should be repeated, including visual examination of the vestibulum, palpation, and percussion of the involved and neighboring teeth. 0000047348 00000 n Nevertheless, amid the controversies and concerns, efforts have increased to find a substitute medicament. (D) The tooth is restored with a stainless steel crown. 0000046343 00000 n The purpose of this article is to facilitate performance of the stainless steel crown and pulpotomy procedures in order to save chair time and provide a more durable and reliable final restoration for primary molars. The reduction of pain through pharmacological control of the inflammatory process has also been attempted in endodontics by the application of eugenol,13 and later corticosteroids and other anti-inflammatory drugs,14 as dressings.

Gutmann DDS, Cert Endo, PhD (honoris causa), FACD, FICD, FADI, Paul E. Lovdahl DDS, MSD, FACD, FADI, in, Problem Solving in Endodontics (Fifth Edition). No intrapulpal local anesthesia or other hemostatic agent should be used to minimize hemorrhage, because bleeding is a clinical indicator of the radicular pulp status. 0000002578 00000 n Rolling and Thylstrup99 demonstrated that its clinical success rate decreased as follow-up time increased. PAULA J. WATERHOUSE, ... ANNA B. FUKS, in Cohen's Pathways of the Pulp (Tenth Edition), 2011, Localized accumulation of formocresol or FAD has been demonstrated in pulp, dentin, periodontal ligament, and bone surrounding the apices of pulpotomized teeth.93,193, Although animal studies have identified radioisotope-labeled formocresol or FAD in major organs following systemic injection or multiple pulpotomies, researchers concluded that the doses of formocresol were far in excess of those used in normal clinical practice. 69 The mean postoperative observation time for the 164 teeth studied was 2 years, 3 months. In addition, Dean et al demonstrated no statistically significant difference between the electrosurgical and formocresol pulpotomy techniques in a prospective clinical study involving 50 children requiring at least one pulpotomy.70 The children were randomly divided into two groups, with 25 undergoing the electrosurgical technique and 25 undergoing the formocresol technique. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. It has therefore been suggested that the findings should not be extrapolated to clinical use in humans.192,196,197 More recently, a review of the safety of formocresol, including FAD metabolism, suggested that FAD is rapidly metabolized, so the findings of previous studies may have been identifying FAD metabolites systemically and not FAD itself.182 Notwithstanding this, the amount of formocresol absorbed systemically by way of the pulpotomy route is small and may not contraindicate the use of the drug.220, ZVI METZGER, ... HAROLD E. GOODIS, in Cohen's Pathways of the Pulp (Tenth Edition), 2011, Formaldehyde, used as formocresol, has been used extensively in endodontic therapy despite its high toxicity and mutagenic and carcinogenic potential.221 The formaldehyde component of formocresol may vary substantially between 19% and 37%. 0000027057 00000 n Figure 23.13. Despite the continuing common use of formocresol, other materials and techniques have been studied and are used regularly in practice. It is beyond the scope of this chapter to elaborate on these newer and still experimental techniques, but the reader is encouraged to look for future developments in the field. Varying levels of success in early experimental studies have been reported with freeze-dried bone112 autolyzed, antigen-extracted, allogeneic dentin matrix113; allogeneic BMP,14 a fully synthetic nanocrystalline hydroxyapatite paste114; enriched collagen solutions115; and Biodentine, a calcium-silicate–based material.116 Clinical studies have reported promising results using FS, a hemostatic agent, in pulpotomized human primary teeth.117,118 Fuks and colleagues119 reported a success rate of 93% in teeth treated with FS and 84% in those where diluted formocresol (DFC) was employed. Tricresol formalin, another formaldehyde preparation, contains 10% tricresol and 90% formaldehyde. 0000045756 00000 n If your child complains of pain when cold, hot or sweet things touch their tooth/teeth, it may mean that he/she has pulpitis. 0000027301 00000 n and strong, caustic antiseptics were popular as intracanal medicaments at the turn of the twentieth century. Formocresol was introduced to treat non-vital permanent teeth in the United States by Buckley in 1904. 0000011363 00000 n An excellent prospective randomized clinical trial was conducted by Fernandez and others,18 comparing the use of formocresol, MTA, sodium hypochlorite, and ferric sulfate. The gray MTA had 100% radiographic success, and the white had a 93% success rate. The alternatives are better antiseptics with significantly lower toxicity. Mack and Dean reported the results of a retrospective human study of electrosurgical pulpotomies performed on primary molars.69 The mean postoperative observation time for the 164 teeth studied was 2 years, 3 months. Internal root resorption, a finding seen both in FS- and DFC-treated teeth in other studies,119,121 was not observed in MTA-treated teeth in the preliminary report.130 Longer clinical studies have since been published with high success rates.131–137 Holan and associates138 investigated MTA effects in 33 pulpotomized molars during a median follow-up evaluation period of 38.2 months, reporting a success rate of 97%. When the pulp exposure is very large or when more than 2 weeks have passed since the injury, contaminants may cause extensive infection or inflammation 2 to 3 mm beyond the exposure. Although glutaraldehyde was proposed as a replacement for formocresol, questions remain about its safety.36 On a weight-for-weight basis there is little difference in toxicity between formocresol and glutaraldehyde.55, Anna B.
