Introduction: Pulp capping in carious teeth has been considered unpredictable and therefore contraindicated. A recently developed material, mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), resists bacterial leakage and may provide protection to the pulp, when used in combination with a sealed restoration. Aim: Aim of this case report was to determine the clinical and radiographic success rate of vital pulp therapy with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) in human mature permanent molar teeth. Methods: Carious pulpal exposure was treated by direct pulp capping with MTA. Results: After 9 months clinical and radiographic follow-up, it was found that the procedure had successful outcome. Conclusion:Although the results favoured the use of MTA in carious permanent teeth by vital pulp therapy but more studies with larger sample and a longer recall period are needed to justify the use of this novel material for treatment of reversible pulpitis in permanent teeth.
