The effect of pulpward pressure on the response to 50% lidocaine (lignocaine) applied to exposed dentine in cats.


The responses of intradental nerves can be blocked by 50% lidocaine applied to exposed, etched dentine. The aim here was to analyse electrophysiologically the contribution of pulpward pressure to the anaesthetic effect of lidocaine applied to exposed dentine. In 17 adult cats with intact lower canines, approximately 1mm of the coronal tip of the canine was… (More)
