ABSTRACT

The pulp treatment of primary and immature teeth in the children and adolescents is affected by the environment of the patients, clinical careers and dentists performing the techniques, as well as clinical modalities and pulpal diagnosis. The purpose of this study was to investigate the current status of pulp treatment performed in real clinical practice, as well as the reasons behind the choice of treatment methods. The study was conducted on a total of 153 members of the Korean Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and statistical data from the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service (HIRA) from 2010 to 2018 were analyzed together. Both the survey results and the statistics from the HIRA showed that 1-visit pulpectomies of primary teeth were most common, and the frequency of the use of the Ni-Ti file was increased in children with primary or mixed-dentition. In the treatment of immature permanent teeth, regenerative endodontic treatment by individual dentists was found to be less frequent than in university hospitals.
