Pathogenetic aspects of dental pulp pathology

The item offers a view on the effects of morphological, functional, and structural changes in overpulpal dentine and pulp while using multicomponent paste for treatment of deep caries and acute focal pulpitis. The material for the experiment included 13 teeth: 5 canines, eight premolars and molars (6 clinically outbred dogs aged 2–5 years). As found out, the use of the paste accelerated the dynamics of reparative dentinogenesis. The data from electronic microscopy scanning suggest optimization in inflammatory reaction followed by normalization of the main structural components of the pulp and expressed activation of the dentinogenetic function.
