CE Hours: 1.0 CE hour 

Description: This case-control study aimed to compare trigeminal somatosensory sensitivity between patients with a clinical diagnosis of symptomatic irreversible pulpitis (n 5 33) and healthy participants (n 5 33) and to evaluate the impact of somatosensory stratification of symptomatic irreversible pulpitis on pulp sensibility testing.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the chairside qualitative sensory testing (QualST) battery.
  • Discuss the importance of reference values to evaluate pulp sensibility test findings.
  • Discuss the relevance of phenotyping patients with irreversible pulpitis.
