Abstract

The application of laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) to detect pulpal blood flow (PBF) in aged adults has been difficult. An LDF that had a lower frequency range that conventional instrument has been developed for measuring very slow speed blood flow was prepared. The LDF for very low speed of blood flow detected signals from the teeth from which standard LDF did not detect obvious signals. The LDF for measuring very slow speed blood flow is considered to offer promise as a detection method of PBF in adult subjects.
