One of the first things a dentist must do when a patient attends consultation with tooth pain is to check the pulp vitality. This vital step determines the type of treatment that the dentist should do to preserve the tooth.
Traditionally, this pulp test was done with methods such as applying heat or cold to the affected tooth. However, contemporary technologies have simplified this step. An electric pulp tester allows the dentist to determine the tooth's vitality by pressing a button.
An electric pulp tester is a hand-held device that checks the tooth pulp's vitality.
The device possesses a digital screen on the handle. It also has a tip responsible for delivering the electrical current toward the tooth.
The electric pulp tester works by measuring the pulp response against electrical currents. The dental pulp has nerves on it inside. Therefore, it is sensitive to electric stimuli.
The device begins to deliver an electric current when activated. However, the intensity of the current gradually increases to obtain a response from the pulp. The electric pulp tester measures the response from the nerves within the pulp to determine its vitality and health.
The tooth must be isolated from the guys with a rubber dam or cotton wool and from its neighboring teeth through acetate strips. It should also be dried.
To deliver the charge, the dentist must place a conductor between the tooth and the device, such as toothpaste.
