Abstract:

Eugenol is one of the major therapeutic agents in dentistry. The inflammatory response to purified and commercial eugenol are compared, and the inflammatory response to zinc oxideeugenol prepared with either purified or commercial eugenol are also compared. The results indicate that eugenol is inflammatory but the impurities present in commercial eugenol increase the inflammatory response to eugenol and zinc oxide eugenol. Author
