GIANI, Andrea  and  CEDRES, Cecilia. RECENT ADVANCES IN DIRECT PULP CAPPING WITH BIOACTIVE MATERIALS. Actas Odontol. [online]. 2017, vol.14, n.1, pp.4-13. ISSN 1510-8139.

Nowadays with the arrival of the Bioactive Materials, there has been an important change in the treatment of direct pulp capping. It is already probed, in studies in vitro and in vivo that these materials are more effective than calcium hydroxide as they obtain biological and microstructural changes in the pulpar and dentinal tissues.

That is the reason for the appearance of the BIOACTIVE materials, which cause a specific biological response in the interface material-tissue when they are in contact with the vital tissues. The actual materials with the best scientific acceptance are: MTA, Biodentine and Theracal.

Keywords : pulp; bioactive; remineralization.
