 In photo 3) the large tooth cavity is removed; the pink color. Drilling near the tooth nerve but not actually touching it with either the dental drill bur or a dental hand instrument may be called an indirect pulp cap. Bleeding from the dental nerve means that the dentist was directly in the dental pulp and pulpitis symptoms reversible or irreversible are more likely to occur. The text in this image says: Decay removal in a large cavity and Bonding. 1. Initial cavity. 2. decay exposed. 3. decay removed. 4. bonding. (the white in photo #2 is decalcification).

Photos help explain the meaning of dental nerve pulpitis

Indirect means that the tooth nerve exposure did not occur but was close. Treatment choices: 1) Dental Bonding only; 2) Place dental bonding material in the deeper tooth preparation and then place a dental crown on top; 3) Root canal treatment and dental crown. The treatment choices can be made partially based upon tooth pain symptoms. If a dental nerve pulpitis occurs then the question is – based upon the size and depth of the dental caries – whether a reversible pulpitis or irreversible pulpitiis would be expected. This is largely based upon dentist personal experience because it cannot be taught in textbooks.
