This study will compare the outcome of partial and miniature pulpotomy in mature permanent molars with symptomatic partial irreversible pulpitis


After thorough history and clinical and radiographic examination, and confirmation of eligibility for the study, written informed consent will be obtained from study participants after explaining the procedure and its associated risks and benefits. Clinical diagnosis of symptomatic partial irreversible pulpitis will be established based on a history of spontaneous pain or pain exacerbated by cold stimuli and lasting for a few seconds to several hours (lingering pain) compared to control teeth and which is reproducible using cold testing.

Once included, study subjects will be randomly allocated to either Miniature Pulpotomy group or Partial Pulpotomy group. MTA (Mineral Trioxide Aggregate) will be used as pulpotomy agent. A layer of resin modified Glass Ionomer liner will be placed over the MTA and tooth will be permanently restored with composite resin in same appointment.

Pain analysis will be carried out preoperatively and postoperatively at every 24 hours till 7 days after intervention. All the subjects will be followed up for evaluation of clinical and radiographic success at 6 and 12 months from baseline.
