Avances en protección pulpar directa con materiales bioactivos

Andrea Giani, Cecilia Cedrés


Con el advenimiento de los materiales Bioactivos hoy hay un cambio de paradigma en el tratamiento de la protección pulpar directa. Está ampliamente demostrado en la literatura tanto en los estudios in vitro como in vivo, que estos materiales son más efectivos que el hidróxido de calcio para lograr cambios biológicos y microestructurales en el tejido pulpar y dentinario. Es así que surgen los materiales bioactivos, los cuales son sustancias que al ponerse en contacto con los tejidos vivos, provocan un efecto positivo sobre los mismos formando tejidos calcificados. Inducen una respuesta biológica específica en la interfase material-tejido. Actualmente los que cuentan con mayor aval científico son: MTA, Biodentine y Theracal LC.
