Objective: The objective of this study was to compare between the effects of two medicaments [trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA)] on the remaining pulp tissue of the young permanent teeth after pulpotomy. Materials and methods: The present study comprised 30 premolars. Pulpotomy procedure was performed. The radicular pulp was capped with MTA in premolar in one side and with TCA in those of the other side. Premolars were reviewed after successive periods (1 week, 1, and 3 months). Teeth were extracted after examination periods. Sections was then stained by standard hematoxylin and eosin stain. Results and conclusion: Bridge formation was seen in TCA group after 3 months which is a desirable finding in pulpotomy procedures, whereas MTA is superior to TCA in treating pulps in human teeth.
