Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The effect of intrusive force application on human pulpal blood flow (PBF) was examined by means of laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF). Measurements were made from 30 vital upper left central incisors of 30 participants (17: brief intrusive force application, 8: continuous intrusive force application, 5: control group). Both brief and continuous intrusive forces significantly reduced PBF.
