Share Abstract:

An alternative hypothesis to the cause of pulpal inflammation in teeth treated with phosphoric acid on the dentin.

It suggests that the inflammatory response was caused by the prolonged exposure to zinc oxide-eugenol and documents many reports that show ZOE to be a relatively toxic material. The paper also suggests that biocompatibility studies as performed today may be inappropriate.
