Abstract

Aim: To extract and systematically identify the existing literature on the “Clinical and radiographic outcome of calcium hydroxide vs other agents in indirect pulp capping of primary teeth”. Objective: To compare the clinical and radiographic outcome of calcium hydroxide and other agents in indirect pulp capping of primary teeth. Search strategy: The following databases were searched: PubMed Central, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, Lilacs, Science Direct, Sigle. Bibliographies of clinical studies identified in the electronic search were analyzed for studies published outside the electronically searched journals. Selection criteria: Studies comparing the clinical and radiographic success rate of one or more indirect pulp capping agents with calcium hydroxide in primary molars were included. Results: The initial search revealed 243 of which only 9 met the inclusion criteria and 234 were excluded based on the exclusion criteria. All the 9 included studies analysed the clinical and radiographic outcome of calcium hydroxide in comparison with other agents in indirect pulp capping of primary teeth. Conclusion: There is a very limited good quality studies estimating the clinical and radiographic outcome of calcium hydroxide in comparison with other agents in indirect pulp capping of primary teeth. The review identified the need for more studies on the clinical and radiographic outcome of calcium hydroxide in comparison with other agents in indirect pulp capping of primary teeth.
