Risk

The uncertainty associated with any investment. That is, risk is the possibility that the actual return on an investment will be different from its expected return. A vitally important concept in finance is the idea that an investment that carries a higher risk has the potential of a higher return. For example, a zero-risk investment, such as a U.S. Treasury security, has a low rate of return, while a stock in a start-up has the potential to make an investor very wealthy, but also the potential to lose one's entire investment. Certain types of risk are easier to quantify than others. To the extent that risk is quantifiable, it is generally calculated as the standard deviation on an investment's average return.

It was produced after a simplified operative technique was performed in one appointment on very deep proximal carious lesions, radiographically suspected of pulp exposure. The present IPT success rate compares favourably to older reports on formocresol pulpotomy, as summarized in Coll's [2008] review.
Total caries removal could lead to pulp exposure. In addition, the removal of all carious dentin from the cavity is no longer necessary to manage the carious lesion [9].
In cases where pulp exposure is inevitable, direct pulp capping may provide an enhanced recovery of the pulp.5
Responses were unequivocal in their management of a carious pulp exposure; all taught their students to perform a pulpotomy.
This case report aimed to describe the 10-year follow-up data of a patient who underwent tooth fragment reattachment to the maxillary central incisor after coronal fracture with pulp exposure as well as the procedures followed for functional and esthetic adjustments.
Keys Words: Caries, First permanent molars, periapical radiographs, pulp exposure, clinical examination.
Of note, animal studies are based on mechanical pulp exposures of noncarious teeth, whereas human studies are conducted on carious teeth with pulps likely already inflamed.
Exten- sive loss of enamel with dentine involvement or pulp exposure is scored 2 or 3, respectively.
Methods: Restorable permanent first molars (64) with carious pulp exposures were randomly assigned to two groups; CH and MTA.
Furthermore, complicated crown fracture is a fracture involving enamel, dentin, and pulp exposure and therefore requires the treatment of the pulp by pulp capping, pulpotomy, or pulpectomy.
Radiographically the crown had caries with pulp exposure. The lamina dura was widened with apical radiolucency.
Whereas the United Kingdom (UK) national clinical guidelines in paediatric dentistry state that "Primary molars with loss of more than two-thirds of the marginal ridge usually require a pulpotomy" [Llewelyn, 2000], the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends indirect pulp treatment, without removal of the deepest carious dentine so as to avoid a pulp exposure, if the tooth has no or reversible pulpitis [American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, 2006].
