Aim: The aim of the study is to evaluate and compare the clinical and radiographic outcome of partial pulpotomy and full pulpotomy in mature permanent molars with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis using biodentine. Materials and Methods: A total of 66 vital mature permanent molars with irreversible pulpitis were randomly allocated to a partial pulpotomy (n = 33) and full pulpotomy group (n = 33). Biodentine was used as a pulp capping material which was covered with resin-modified glass ionomer cement (RMGIC) followed by composite restoration. Clinical and radiographic evaluation was done at 3, 6, and 12 months follow-up for tenderness, periapical radiolucency, dentine bridge formation, and root canal calcification. Data from the study were analyzed using a Friedman and Mann–Whitney test and the success rate was analyzed by Chi-square value. Result: No statistically significant difference was found between partial and full pulpotomy (P > 0.05) and the success rate was 80.7% and 92.8%, respectively, at 12 months follow-up period. Conclusion: Both partial and full pulpotomy can be used as a permanent treatment modality in symptomatic irreversible pulpitis of vital mature permanent molars.
