Two increasingly common endodontic procedures, vital pulp therapy (VPT) and regenerative endodontic procedures, rely on dental tissue regeneration/repair mechanisms with the aid of biomaterials. These materials are applied in close contact to the pulpal tissue and are required to be biocompatible, form an antimicrobial seal, not induce staining, and be easy to manipulate. Historically, calcium hydroxide played an important role in VPT. However, over the last 3 decades, significant efforts in research and industry have been made to develop various biomaterials, including hydraulic tricalcium silicate cements. The present review summarized various hydraulic tricalcium silicate cements and their biological properties in clinical procedures, namely VPT and regenerative endodontic procedures.
