Fractured permanent teeth should be evaluated as soon as possible for pulpal exposure. In immature permanent teeth, after minimally removing the affected exposed pulp tissue and controlling hemorrhage by the dentist, the healthy coronal pulp is covered with a material such as calcium hydroxide or mineral trioxide aggregate prior to placing a restoration that seals the tooth from microleakage. This procedure is called a partial or Cvek pulpotomy. Periodic evaluation of pulpal condition is required to monitor healing.
