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.

Pulp exposure after stepwise versus direct complete excavation of deep carious lesions in young posterior permanent teeth.
Pulp exposure occurrence and outcomes after 1- or 2-visit indirect pulp therapy vs complete caries removal in primary and permanent molars.
Incomplete caries removal significantly reduces the risk of pulp exposure and post-operative pulpal symptoms.
Therefore, the goal of the current study was to evaluate the association between pulp exposures on clinical examination with pulp exposure on periapical radiograph in Class II carious lesion affect first permanent molars.
The inclusion criteria of this study were healthy patients with Class II caries on mesial or distal side of tooth which lead to pulp exposure, maxillary or mandibular first molar involvement, and history of mild pain.
Three monkeys were used to study the healing of mechanical pulp exposures capped with Life[TM] [Mjor et al.
Methods: Restorable permanent first molars (64) with carious pulp exposures were randomly assigned to two groups; CH and MTA.
According to Seltzer and Bender [1975] and Baulme and Holz [1981] direct pulp capping is indicated for small mechanical exposures in young permanent teeth with extensive vascular supply and should be discouraged for carious pulp exposures.
It also proved that costly and advanced equipments/ instruments need not be a restraining factor for this versatile treatment, which can resolve the morbidity associated with tooth pulp exposures.
