Association of Proximal Caries and Pulp Therapies in Primary Maxillary Anteriors

Author(s): Bhagya Lakshmi T*, Balakrishna RN and Shivanni SS

The aim of this study is to assess the association between proximal caries and pulp therapies done in primary maxillary anteriors. The importance of management of anterior teeth is due to their aesthetic concerns. The extent of caries and pulpal involvement determines the treatment to be done. Pulp therapy procedures help in the preservation of the tooth and prevent tooth extraction. A total of 80,000 case sheets were collected and reviewed among which patients between the ages of 3-7 years who have undergone pulp therapy procedure due to proximal caries involving the pulp have been selected. The results were statistically analysed and graphs were tabulated. Among a total number of patients, the most predominant surface affected by caries was found to be the mesial surface with a percentage of 51% and 61% of the cases were found to be done in maxillary central incisors. Maxillary central incisors were found to be the most commonly affected teeth with proximal caries.
