Dr. Bogen is well recognized speaker of vital pulp therapy for young patients. He is a reference in that field for the American Association of Endodontists. He has written and documented his work and reported cases in well known dental Journals such as JADA and Others. Here is his opinion about Vital pulp Therapy “Vital pulp therapy has emerged as a predictable treatment option for teeth in younger patients that exhibit normal responses to cold testing and a diagnosis of reversible pulpitis. Although many endodontic specialists base diagnostic considerations solely on radiographic interpretation when teeth exhibit deep caries, subjective symptomology and vitality testing must be completed in order to arrive at the correct differential diagnosis”.
