Neurogenic inflammation, initiated by sympathetic nerves. Atrophic effect on immune cells, attract immune cells. May induce inflammation and pain without other stimulus. Seemingly perfect tooth can still become inflamed. Stimulation of sympathetic nerve, cause recruitment of polymorphic nucleocytes and dentritic cells, immune competent cells that are a link between bacteria and lymph nodes. They are also phagocytes, double function in the immune system. Nerve fibres release substance P. common dental procedures that cause pain cause substance P to be released from nerve fibers that has important clinical signs, causes pain and inflammation as well.
