INTRODUCTION To evaluate the microscopic characteristics and densities (per mm(2) ) of tryptase(+) mast cells, CD4(+) T helper lymphocytes, CD45RO(+) memory T lymphocytes, foxp3(+) T regulatory lymphocytes, CD20(+) B lymphocytes, CD68(+) macrophages, and CD31(+) blood vessels in human dental pulpitis (n=38) and healthy pulpal tissue (n=6). METHODOLOGY The(More)
INTRODUCTION Pulse oximetry is a noninvasive method for assessing vascular health based on oxygen saturation level. The method has recently also been used to assess dental pulp vitality, but a median oxygen saturation level suggestive of normal pulp physiology has not been determined. The objective of this study was to make a critical analysis of the(More)
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the effect of temperature and curing time on composite sorption and solubility. MATERIAL AND METHODS Seventy five specimens (8×2 mm) were prepared using a commercial composite resin (ICE, SDI). Three temperatures (10°C, 25°C and 60°C) and five curing times (5 s, 10 s, 20 s, 40 s and 60 s) were evaluated. The specimens were(More)
The objective of this study was to microscopically evaluate the human periodontal ligament adhered to extracted teeth, after extra-alveolar period of 1 h using, as storage media, pasteurized milk (group I), chicken egg white (group II) and artificial saliva (group III). Forty intact premolars were selected, with indication of tooth extraction for(More)
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the presence of microorganisms and analyzed microscopically the pulp of 20 traumatized human teeth with intact crowns and clinical diagnosis of pulp necrosis, based on the association of at least three of the clinical criteria: crown discoloration, negative response to thermal and electric pulp vitality tests, positive(More)
Introduction: Dental trauma may result in pulpal and periodontal injuries, which cause a negative impact on life quality. Its prognosis is highly influenced by the emergency care. Objectives: This study aimed to investigate the selfperceived knowledge of undergraduate students Physical Education and attitudes regarding dental trauma. Methods:(More)
INTRODUCTION In individuals with periodontal disease, dental pulp status should be determined before a treatment plan is made. Pulse oximeters are promising diagnostic tools to evaluate pulp vascularization. This study used pulse oximetry to determine the level of oxygen saturation in dental pulp of intact permanent teeth with periodontal attachment loss(More)
Adhesive techniques are more sensitive than conventional techniques and it is mandatory to isolate the operatory field. To accomplish this goal, rubber dam isolation is the gold standard procedure. In root canal treatment, use of a rubber dam is found to be the standard of care, however, it is usually abandoned by professionals as time progresses from(More)
