1

A clinical diagnostic category in which the pulp is symptom-free and normally responsive to pulp testing.

Normal Pulp

2

A clinical diagnosis based upon subjective and objective findings indicating that the inflammation should resolve and the pulp return to normal.

Reversible Pulpitis

3

A clinical diagnosis based on subjective and objective findings indicating that the vital inflamed pulp is incapable of healing. Additional descriptors: Lingering thermal pain, spontaneous pain, referred pain.

Sympomatic Irreversible Pulpitis

4

A clinical diagnosis based on subjective and objective findings indicating that the vital inflamed pulp is incapable of healing. Additional descriptors: No clinical symptoms but inflammation produced by caries, caries excavation, trauma, etc.

Asymptomatic Irreversible Pulpitis

5

A clinical diagnostic category indicating death of the dental pulp. The pulp is usually nonresponsive to pulp testing.

Pulp Necrosis

6

A clinical diagnostic category indicating that the tooth has been endodontically treated and the canals are obturated with various filling materials other than intracanal medicaments.


Previously Treated

7

A clinical diagnostic category indicating that the tooth has been previously treated by partial endodontic therapy (e.g., pulpotomy, pulpectomy).

Previously Initiated Therapy

8

Teeth with normal periradicular tissues that are not sensitive to percussion or palpation testing. The lamina dura surrounding the root is intact and the periodontal ligament space is uniform.

Normal Apical Tissues

9

Inflammation, usually of the apical periodontium, producing clinical symptoms including a painful response to biting and/or percussion or palpation. It may or may not be associated with an apical radiolucent area.

Symptomatic Apical Periodontitis

10

Inflammation and destruction of apical periodontium that is of pulpal origin, appears as an apical radiolucent area, and does not produce clinical symptoms.

Asymptomatic Apical Periodontitis

11

An inflammatory reaction to pulpal infection and necrosis characterized by rapid onset, spontaneous pain, tenderness of the tooth to pressure, pus formation and swelling of associated tissues.

Acute Apical Abscess

12

An inflammatory reaction to pulpal infection and necrosis characterized by gradual onset, little or no discomfort, and the intermittent discharge of pus through an associated sinus tract.

Chronic Apical Abscess

13

Diffuse radiopaque lesion representing a localized bony reaction to a low-grade inflammatory stimulus, usually seen at apex of tooth.

Condensing Osteitis
