Different causes for pulpal inflammation

By Dr. Vishaal Bhat on Tuesday, 10 June, 2008 with 0 comments

Microbial causes, mainly caries.

Tiniest gaps between dentin and filling are enough to allow bacteria to infect

Periodontitis, infection of periodontium.

Trauma: parafunction, deep overbite

Iatrogenic, dentist inflicted trauma. During cavity prep, without enough water coolant, prepare too close to pulp etc.

Idiopathic. Resorption, odontoblasts turn into dentinoclasts, eat away the walls of the tooth, remove dentin and cavity in tooth appears on radiograph. Typically tissue coronal to resporption is decrotic, and below it is still vital, because vital cells are removing dentin. External resporption. Differentiate between internal and external resportpion, can see contour of root canal as opposted to no contour (internal).
