Visible Light-Induced Crosslinkable Gelatin for Direct Pulp Capping
Direct pulp capping involves the application of dental materials to the exposed pulp in an attempt to act as a barrier, protect the dental pulp complex and preserve its vitality. The materials for direct pulp capping should ideally adhere to dental pulp tissue as soft tissue and dentin as hard tissue with tight sealing. We therefore developed visible light-induced crosslinkable gelatin which is capable of adhesive to soft tissue and hard tissue.
