TIP #71 – Taming the Hot Pulp with Dr Mehdi Rahimi

Nobody likes to be in pain, and as dentists, we have patients walking through the door in pain everyday. And it’s our job to help them out. However, every so often, we encounter the Angry Hot Pulp, which just won’t settle no matter what we do to try anaesthetise it.

We are so fortunate to be have Dr Mehdi Rahimi – a specialist Endodontist, Adjunct Associate Professor and president of the Australian Society of Endodontology (NSW Branch) – join us over a three part series, to talk through all the common endo problems we might encounter and how to manage them. In this episode, he talks us through what exactly causes a hot pulp and the protocol he’s developed to manage it.
