Delta (delta) opioid receptors in small and medium-sized trigeminal neurons supporting the dental pulp of rats.

Abstract

The control of pain perception is a challenge in clinical dentistry, most prominent during tooth pulp inflammation. The tooth pulp is a well-defined target, and is densely supplied by a sensory trigeminal innervation. Opioids are signaling molecules that are suggested to participate in pain perception. Here we analysed the presence of delta opioid receptor… (More)
