Ibuprofen and Irreversible Pulpitis Treatment

When caries reaches within 0.5 mm of the pulp, the immune system responds to the bacterial advance by recruiting inflammatory cells. These inflamma-tory cells migrate to the dental pulp, typically resulting in irreversible pulpitis, at which point nonsurgical endodontic therapy is the preferred treatment. But achieving an accept-able level of anesthesia in these [...]

But little reported evidence-based information exists regarding the prognosis and survival [...]
