This article reports on how dental pulp is affected by infections in the teeth. The article discusses the effect of microorganisms on dental pulp cavities, dentin, and dentinal tubules, noting their roles in causing dental caries. Information is provided on inflammatory cellular infiltrations, fibrosis, calcification, and fat accumulations as well.

    Microorganisms infecting the dental root canal system play an unequivocal role as causative agents of apical periodontitis. Although fungi, archaea, and viruses have been found in association with some forms of apical periodontitis, bacteria are the main microbial etiologic agents of this...

    Examination by an immunofluorescent antibody technique has demonstrated that Streptococcus mutans gains entrance into the dentinal tubules of open root canals. It was observed that the distance of invasion from the canal walls ranged from an average of 493-524 μm to a maximum of 1050-1150...

    Ultramicroscopic carious changes were studied by using longspan ultrathin sections of dentin, which included a continuous piece of dentin from the pulp chamber wall up to the carious cavity floor. The changes observed in the inner carious dentin were gradual and continuous, with dissolution of...

    Clinical significance: The apical extrusion of infected debris may have the potential to disrupt the balance between microbial aggression and host defense, resulting in incidents of acute inflammation. During preparation, irrigants and debris, such as bacteria, dentin filings and necrotic tissue...
