Introduction: Direct pulp capping treatment (DPC) maintains pulp vitality by promoting healing or repair in dentistry, which can be attributed to the advent of bioceramic materials. Aim: This examination looked to evaluate the clinical and histological effectuality of Biodentine with Dycal for DPC. Materials and Methodology: In this study, 30 intact human orthodontic teeth undergoing therapeutic extraction were chosen to perform DPC. They were arbitrarily divided into two groups (n = 15) and DPC with Biodentine and Dycal was performed. Composite resin was used as permanent restoration. After a period of 1 and 6 weeks, clinical as well as electric pulp tests were carried out. Asymptomatic patients were re-called after 6 weeks; follow-up radiograph was taken. Electric pulp testing and thermal testing was done to check the pulpal status of the teeth. This was followed by atraumatic extraction, and the teeth were sent for histological examination. SPSS Version 21.0. Armonk, NY: IBM Corp.was used for data analysis. Results: There was no pain and sensitivity in using Biodentine. Whereas, sensitivity and pain was noted when Dycal was used. The dentinal bridge was better with Biodentine when compared with Dycal. Conclusion: In accordance with the obtained results, it was concluded that on clinical and histological evaluation, Biodentine performed better as DPC agent. Subsequently, Biodentine is more dependable for the long-haul protection of dental pulp than Dycal.
