PURPOSE: To evaluate clinical and radiographic outcomes of indirect pulp treatment (IPT) in primary molars after long-term function (up to 60 months). METHODS: Teeth with deep carious lesions without signs and symptoms of irreversible pulpitis were divided by random allocation into two groups, according to the capping material utilized over demineralized dentin: experimental group (1): self-etching adhesive system (Clearfil SE Bond); and control group (2): calcium hydroxide liner (Dycal). Both groups were filled with resin composite (Z250) and submitted to a clinical and radiographic monitoring period until exfoliation. RESULTS: After the follow-up period (up to 60 months), no statistical difference was found between groups (P= 0.514). The overall success rate reached 78%. The failures occurred after the first year period recall.
