Abstract

The successful management of pain has been one of the cornerstones of endodontic practice and dentistry worldwide since time immemorial. Achieving profound pulpal anesthesia not only helps patients overcome their fears and displeasures towards dentistry but also favors the dentists who will be less stressed worrying about the patient reaction or sudden movement during the treatment procedure. But, achieving adequate anesthesia in patients with a hot tooth, which is a tooth with irreversible pulpitis, can be a challenge. This article describes the hot tooth, reasons for anesthetic failure and some of its management strategies.
