Dr Balan Prasanth, Dr Kumar R Nileena

Abstract :

 Context:  

  This study was done to modify the pulse oximetry probe for the evaluation of pulp vitality test in anterior teeth in humans

Aims: The objective of using the pulse oximeter is to assess the blood circulation of the pulp by:

1)Evaluation of the oxygen saturation of the pulp

2)Evaluation of the pulse rate readings from the pulp vasculature    

Settings and Design:

The conventional pulse oximetry probe was customized for the purpose of pulp vitality test and was used in this study and registered excellent readings.

Results:

The result of the present study confirmed the efficacy of a customized pulse oximetry probe for the use of pulp vitality test for anterior teeth in human beings

 

Conclusions :

 Present study shows that pulseoximetry with probe modification can be successfully used for pulp vitality test.
