Subject: [roots] Tough Dx

I almost brought her back another day to retest,
since all teeth in the area responsed absolutely normal
to a multitude of repeated cold testings.  Additionally
no abnormal responses to palpation or percussion.
Hot testing did the trick.  She had no complaint of
thermal sensitivity, so the hot test was kind of a test
of last resort before bringing her another day.
A couple applications with a red hot Glick and I was able
to get the tooth throbbing like it does at home. Everyone
was relieved that the dx was possible today since she has
been having a lot of pain and wanted something done today
rather than trying to figure it out another day.  RCT was
the easy part - Mark Dreyer

Try a dry prophy cup for hot.  It will heat a larger area
quick and not require the massive amount of heat that a
red hot Glick does - Guy

Hot pulp test tip for the Touch'N heat or system B works
great also, you can set it to a lower heat - B Bevan
