Author(s): Meseret Bekele Gelaye*, Aditya Patel and Anjali G Bhoyar


Pulp capping is a dental restoration procedure that protects the dental pulp from death of tissue after it has been exposed,
or almost exposed during cavity preparation, from a severe injury, causing the pulp to die. Calcium hydroxide and Mineral
Trioxide Aggregates (MTA) are the most often utilised pulp capping materials in dentistry, and they have had significant
clinical success. In recent years various other materials like Bone morph genic protein, Bio dentin, Lasers are also
introduced clinically. Therefore this review article will summarize recent pulp capping materials and their advantages.
