Pulpotomy is a common therapy in pediatric dentistry, done in a primary molar
with severe caries, but without evidence of radicular pathology where the removal of caries
results in exposure to carious or mechanical pulp. To facilitate healing or an agent to repair
the underlying tissue, the pulpotomy technique involves coating pulp stumps with a pulpcapping
agent. Pulpotomy can be performed using different techniques including non
pharmacotherapeutic treatments such as electrosurgey and lasers or pharmacotherapeutic
approaches by dressing pulp tissue with different medicaments or biological materials such as
formocresol (FC), glutaraldehyde, ferric sulphate, freezed dried bone, bone morphogenic
protein (BMP), osteogenic protein, sodium hyochloride, calcium enriched mixture (CEM)
and enriched collagen solutions. Hence the aim of present review of literature is to discuss
various pulpotomy medicaments in detail
