AbstractAntioxidants counter the excess proteases and reactive oxygen species (ROS) often formed by neutrophil accumulation in the wounded area and protect protease inhibitors from oxidative damage. Fibroblasts and other cells may be killed by excess ROS and tissues will be made less flexible, so antioxidant substances will reduce the possibility of these adverse events occurring (Sen et al., 2002). Epidemiological studies have reported that antioxidants may have both anti- inflammatory and anticarcinogenic effects. All these facts and overall antioxidant effects appear to be important in the successful treatment of wound healing (Owen, 2000 and Sen et al., 2002). Thus this study aims to evaluate the clinical and radiographic success rate of antioxidant mix versus FC as a pulpotomy agent in primary molars .
