Abstract: The concept of sealing deep caries into a vital asymptomatic tooth, rather than removing all caries and risking a pulpal exposure with all the inevitable sequelae (ranging from pulp-capping to root canal-filling), has gained increasing acceptance from the time when Mertz-Fairhurst and colleagues published their ten-year randomized controlled trial in 1998.
