ABSTRACT:This case report describes the Direct pulp capping (DPC) of deep carious lesion in mandibular left first permanent molar. A 19 year old female patient reported to the department of conservative dentistry and endodontics, had sensitivity to cold beverages and mild pain on chewing. Clinical examination revealed extensive coronal caries extending to pulp. Tooth was mature and no radiographic pathological finding was found i.e absence of radiolucency in the periapical region and absence of periodontal ligament space thickening. Pulp sensitivity was confirmed by thermal pulp test and Electric pulp test (EPT). Diagnosis of reversible pulpitis was made. Treatment included caries removal under rubber dam isolation, capping of exposure site with Biodentine and sealing with permanent restoration, At 3months, 6 months and 1 year follow up tooth was functional and had normal response to cold test and did not have sensitivity to percussion.
