Abstract:

Antihistamine was applied to the cut dentin surface of thermally traumatized monkey teeth and the cavity preparation restored with zinc-oxide eugenol. Control teeth were similarly traumatized and restored without antihistamine treatment. Histologic examination of the pulps did not demonstrate any significant effect of antihistamine on pulpal inflammation during a 4-96 hour period. Author
