Evolution of knowledge related to molecular Biology has been applied in different areas of clinical Biology, Dentistry among them, allowing the use of these new advances in the treatment of offenses to the pulpal organ. The use of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) represents another possibility in the treatment of exposed pulps with no contact with aggressive agents and free from undesirable effects to maintain pulp vitality.
KEY WORDS: bone Morphogenetic proteins, reparative dentin, pulp capping.
