Electric pulp testers (EPTs) are widely used to assess tooth pulp vitality. With many unipolar EPTs the electrical circuit is completed through the operator. Since dentists now routinely wear rubber gloves, these might be expected to provide electrical insulation, and therefore to break the circuit. The objective of this investigation was to define the electrical effect of wearing rubber gloves. Two battery-powered unipolar EPTs were examined using a digital storage oscilloscope with an input… CONTINUE READING
