Direct pulp capping remains an elusive dilemma in pulp therapy. The advent of new materials and the characterization of the role of bacteria in healing response have opened new avenues in direct pulp capping. In this study, four premolars indicated for orthodontic extraction were selected for pulp cupping. One group Bras capped with calcium hydroxide [DYCAL] and other group with dentin bonding agent [Prompt - L - Pop]. The teeth were extracted after one week and two weeks respectively and sectioned and observed . for histological response. Results showed that though both the groups showed odontoblastic activity and evidence of reparative dentin formation, The calcium hydroxide group showed better response. Mild inflammation was seen in both the groups. The results suggest that dentin bonding agents can be used as alternative direct pulp capping agents. However, further research is necessary.
