Abstract

The application of heat ranging from 115 to 124 F and a 35% solution of hydrogen peroxide to intact human premolars causes a mild superficial inflammation (graded 0.5 to 1.0) in a significant number of pulps. Peroxide alone, or heat with saline solution, was judged to be less irritating since it did not cause a significant number of inflammatory responses.
