Direct pulp capping and partial pulpotomy are two clinical modalities to preserve tooth vitality in cases of pulp exposure in young permanent teeth [Mass and Zilberman, 1993; Mejare and Cvek, 1993].
Partial pulpotomy for permanent teeth with diagnosis of normal pulp or reversible pulpitis is a procedure in which the inflamed tissue beneath an exposure is removed to a depth of 1 to 3 mm or deeper to reach healthy pulp tissue.
In choosing to perform a partial pulpotomy in a permanent molar the assumption is that penetration of microorganisms and inflammatory reactions are limited to a superficial area.
The ideal treatment option was a partial pulpotomy as this would facilitate continued root growth and physiological apposition of dentine.
