The dawn of a new era was seen in pediatric dentistry with the invention of calcium silicate-based materials like Mineral Trioxide Aggregate [MTA] and Biodentine [BD]. Their introduction into Pediatric endodontics as regenerative materials has made boundless productive changes starting from vital pulp therapies like pulp capping, apexogenesis to non-vital pulp therapies like apexification and revascularisation process. Excellent biocompatibility, regenerative property, low cytotoxicity, formation of chemical bond with the tooth structure, good radiopacity, easy handling characteristics make these materials an attractive option in pediatric endodontics. MTA and Biodentine materials have given remarkable prognosis in various clinical condition, the treatment of which once considered as impossible. This article aims to reviewthe success rate of Biodentine and MTA in pediatric endodontics.
