Abstract

Introduction: Ferric Sulfate has been proposed as an alternative to formocresol for pulpotomies in primary teeth, but it's success rate has been reported to be lower than formocresol pulpotomy in some literature. It may be in part due to Eugenol from Zincoxide engenol (ZOE) sub-base. The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical and radiographic success rate, of ferric sulfate pulpotomy of second primary molars using zinc oxide Eugenol (ZOE) or Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) cements as sub-base. Materials & Methods: In this randomized clinical trial study, approved by ethical committee of Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, 50 children aged between 3 and 5 years, each with two primary Mandibular second molars requiring pulpotomy were selected. After achieving haemostasis with damp cotton pellets, all of the teeth (100 teeth) were randomly allocated to one of the two groups of Ferric Sulfate pulpotomies: ZOE or MTA as sub-base. All of the teeth were restored with stainless steel crown. The teeth were clinically and radiographically evaluated double blindedly at 6 and 12 months after treatment. The data were analyzed using the McNemar test. Results: Clinical success rate in one-year evaluation in two groups of ZOE and MTA cements were 97.5 and 100 respectively. No significant difference was found between the 2 groups. 83.3 of the samples in both groups showed no pathological signs on radiographic evaluation after 12 months. The most common radiographic sign of failure was furca radiolucency in both groups with frequency of 16.7 and 7.1 in ZOE and MTA groups respectively (P=0.344). Conclusion: The clinical and radiographic success rates of ferric sulfate pulpotomies of primary molars with MTA or ZOE as sub-base are almost the same.
