ABSTRACT
Corticosteroids are used in the treatment of chronic autoimmune diseases and many long-term illnesses. While these drugs may be considered essential for the patient's health, adverse reactions do occur. The incidence of adverse reactions depends upon the dose level and the duration of treatment. A pilot study was conducted on ten patients on long-term corticosteroids therapy. Pulpal obliteration was assessed by radiographic records. In most instances, pulpal changes to some degree were observed.

    Fluorescent bands of tetracycline deposition in human teeth were always more sharply demarcated on the side toward the amelodentinal junction than on the pulpal side. This probably is related to diminution of the drug serum level in connection with intake. A nonfluorescent space at the end of...
