Dental Pulp Tissue





This is neat image of a vital dental pulp. The tooth was diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis, acute apical periodontitis and cracked tooth syndrome. RCT was completed prior to crowning the tooth. Once in a while, the pulp will come out in one piece. This actually shows the tissue from the pulp chamber all the way down to the apical portion.

Now that's cool - I have never seen that in all my years in dental offices. What a great photo!

The pic is cool..... First time seeing it.

BTW, I am conducting a survey on Dental Anxiety and would appreciate it if you could spare sometime to answer a few questions at:

Dental Anxiety Survey

Please free to forward the survey to as many people as possible or write about it at your blog. I hope with the data collected, will enable me to better understand the type of fears one experience whenever they visit the dentist. I will be most happy to give you the priority rights to display the data on your site 7 days before I do a press release. Please email me if you are keen to display the data.

thank you
