Abstract

The rise in pulp temperature during restorative therapy can compromise vitality of the dental pulp. Of the various reasons for the increase in intrapulpal temperature, tooth preparation is considered to be the primary cause. This article describes the reasons for the rise in pulp temperature during various modalities of tooth preparation. The article also comments on the measures that need to be taken to avoid the risk of pulp hyperthermia during tooth preparation.
