The purpose of this study was to investigate pulpal responses to tricalcium phosphate and durapatite which recently introduced as a bone substitute. Tricalcium phosphate and durapatite were placed on the amputated pulp tissue in the dog's teeth. Animals were sacrificed after 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks and specimens were decalcified, embedding, sectioned and stained routinly. Microscopic examination reveals as follows; 1. Tricalcium phosphate: Severe inflammatory change was seen in the all cases and calcified masses were seen at 2 weeks. Calcified masses were enlarged according to the time elapsed. 2. Durapatite: Severe inflammatory change and pus cavities were found at 1 week. There was no evidence of healthy cell component in the remaining pulp tissue and degenerative change was obvious at 2, 3 and 4 weeks. 3. Dentin bridge was not formed in the both cases. In the case of tricalcium phosphate osteoblasts were observed unevenly around the calcified masses which were composed of hematophilic substance in central portion and eosinophilic substance in peripheral region of the masses.
