The healthy pulp has the inherent potential for healing provided the exposure site is kept bacteria free. Various materials have been tried as direct pulp capping (DPC) agents, the most accepted being the calcium hydroxide. Not much progress achieved since calcium hydroxide was introduced as direct pulp capping agent and it remained in use along with its complication. Recently resorcinol resin has successfully been tried as DPC agent. in the present study. The clinical, radiological and histological evaluation of the material clearly support the evidence that resorcinol can best be used as DPC material and it also overcomes the drawbacks of calcium hydroxide.
