Management of deep carious lesions and the associated histopathological pulpal changes is important for caries management in operative dentistry. The pulp requires protection from further bacterial invasion from the carious process, thermal / electrical conduction (depending on the conductivity of the restorative material placed upon it) and chemical protection from the overlying restorative materials. An important function of a therapeutic lining material is to stimulate the pulp odontoblasts to lay down reparative dentine and promote remineralization of existing dentine; thus encouraging the dentine-pulp complex and eventually, the carious lesion, to heal.
