ABSTRACT
The article presents a speech by Doctor Harold S. Vaughan given at a meeting of the New York Academy of Dentistry on February 19, 1924. Vaughan notes that the scientific literature on the subject of pulpless teeth represents widely divergent extremes of opinion and prejudice. A review of what can occur when the dental pulp dies and bacteria pass through to the foramina resulting in abscess is offered. It is stressed that removal or retention of pulpless teeth must depend upon several factors such as, the appearance of the tooth, the health of adjacent tissues, radiograph interpretation, and the history and general condition of the patient.
