Calcium hydroxide has been used for a variety of purposes in dentistry including pulpotomy of temporary molars. Several studies examining inflammatory response to its use generally demonstrated a mild inflammatory reaction. However, it may cause adverse reactions damaging bone and soft tissues either by direct contact after poor implementation or after ion diffusion. The severity and extent of the lesion depends on the quantity and concentration used, as well as on the time of contact. The following report describes a case of bone necrosis after a pulpotomy with calcium hydroxide in a temporary molar. Pathological analysis confirmed de diagnosis.
