Patient was sent to RCT of 46 (30) . Restoration was done 7-8 years before. Patient  noticed some discomfort while drinking cold water. There was no spontaneous or night pain

There was a sharp and short pain as a result of cold testing, no signs of PAL on X-rays. After restorations and decay removal point of pulp expose was found out against MB pulp horn. Under high magnification pulp tissue looked uninflamed, so I made the decision to try to save the vitality, laser treatment and MTA sealing.
The point of exposure was marked by Permaflo and additionally sealed with composite. The final restoration was  done by RD
