 Direct pulp Cap DPC

Jang JOE Aug 2015
ProRoot MTA = Endocem
Class V DPC less successful

ProRoot MTA = calcium silicate-based cement
Endocem = fast-setting pozzolan-based MTA
Biodentine = calcium silicate based
RetroMTA = 60-80wt% calcium carbonate, calcium zirconia 20-30%, silicon dioxide 5-15%, aluminum oxide 5-10%
TheraCal = resin-modified calcium silicate liner type III portland cement 45 wt%, resin 40%, radiopacifier 10%, silica 5%

Biodentine = MTA > CaOH2 > Bonding agent at forming dentin Human trial good study Nowicka JOE Aug 2015
