2-Lucency remains at apex despite angulation
3-Lucency resembles hanging drop
4-Tooth has necrotic pulp

6

A reaction to pulp or perioapical inflammation resulting in density of bone is called?

Condensing Osteitis

7

What are 3 examples of pulpal lesions?

1-Internal resorption (dentinoclastic activity)
2-Calcific metamorphosis (obliterated canal, usually history of trauma)
3-Pulp sotnes

5-Normal

10

Which pulpal condition has uncomfortable but quickly reversing stimulation, caries (exposed dentin) or a recent restoration?

Reversible pulpitis

*does not need RCT generally

11

What are 4 things that can affect the dentin tubule fluid causing sensitivity?

1-Dehydration (fluid pulls out)
2-Heat (fluid in)
3-Cold (fluid out)
4-Hyper-osmotic solutions (fluid out)

12

Stimulation resulting in heightened and prolonged response with minimal or no radiographic change which can be symptomatic or asymptomatic is categorized as what?

Irreversible pulpitis

*RCT needed

13

Which pulpal classificiation describes histological status of pulp and has no response to cold but sometimes heat?

Pulpal necrosis

*RCT needed

14

Which pulpal classification is characterized by a symptomatic tooth with a partially filled canal?

Previously initiated pulp therapy
