What is Capping Treatment?

Capping treatment is the treatment for deep dentin caries if there are pains caused by hot-cold sweet-sour factors, and if these pains are temporary, short-term pain when the factor is removed. (Canal treatment is not applied in cases of prolonged pain that does not go away when the agent is removed, or in cases of throbbing pain that develops spontaneously regardless of the agent.) The aim is to clean the carious dentin from the cavity and maintain the vitality and health of the pulp with agents that will induce repair dentin formation.
