Abstract

Aim: aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical and radiographic healing after repairing mechanical furcal perforations that occurred in primary molars by using MTA (Mineral Trioxide Aggregate) and search in some factors that may affect the prognosis of the treatment. Materials & Methods: we had 34 primary molars in 32 children aged 5–10 years, were treated by using MTA material after the occurrence of furcal perforation during pulpotomy procedure. Cases had been followed clinically and radiographically within 12 months. Statistical analyses were performed at p-value = 0.05. Results: All teeth were asymptomatic at the first week. Overall success rate was 79.3%. There was no significant statistically differences between overall-success rates according to the perforation size and continues bleeding in the furcation area (p-value > 0.05). Conclusions: Iatrogenic furcal perforations that may occur during pulpotomy in primary molars can be treated successfully by using MTA, and small sized-perforations may have more favorable prognosis than the large ones. Iatrogenic furcal perforations that may occur during pulpotomy in primary molars can be treated successfully by using MTA, and small sized- perforations may have more favorable prognosis than the large ones.
