Abstract:

One-second applications of carbon dioxide snow were made to amalgam and composite restorations with and without bases in vitro. Temperature changes were recorded intra-pulpally. All bases under restorations reduced the transference of cold to a significant degree p 0.01. The degree of reduction was much greater under the amalgam restorations. By far the greatest reduction to temperature change caused by short-term episodes of cold occurred with the first 0.53mm of base. Author
