Pulpal Response to Caries and Dental Procedures
Objectives and Goals
- Be familiar with the hydrodynamic theory of pain.
- Be familiar with the etiologies of pain associated with different materials.
- Be familiar with the mechanism of bacterial caused inflammation.
- Be familiar with the general changes seen in the pulp due to aging.
- Be able to integrate the findings in this section in your diagnosis and treatment planning.
