Background: Partial pulpotomy is a procedural intervention that can maintain the vitality of pulp during the management of traumatized permanent teeth with pulpal involvement. Aim: To evaluate whether partial pulpotomy can be considered a reliable conservative treatment option for treating traumatized permanent anterior teeth with pulpal involvement. Methodology: A computerized systematic search was performed in PubMed, Science Direct, Cochrane, and LILACS databases from 1980 to May 2021. Five studies were included in the final analysis. Quality assessment, Meta-analysis, and Publication bias of the studies were evaluated. This systematic review was registered in PROSPERO (ID – CRD42021262031). Result: The comprehensive Meta-Analysis Software was used. The test of the heterogeneity was analysed using Cochran's Q statistics. The Q value was 7.186 (df = 6) with a P value of 0.3 and I2 as 16.5%. The studies were considered homogenous, and the fixed-effect model showed an overall point estimate of 0.89 with a 95% confidence interval (0.86–0.91). The Begg and Egger funnel plot indicated that there was no publication bias in the included studies. Conclusion: Evidence indicates that partial pulpotomy may be considered a reliable definitive treatment option in asymptomatic traumatized permanent anterior teeth with exposed pulp rather than total pulpotomy.
