Abstract

Blood samples were taken from 30 patients immediately after various nonsurgical endodontic procedures. The incidence of bacteremias produced by these procedures was determined and quantitated. The source of the blood-borne microorganisms was confirmed as the pulp cavity. The results indicate that bacteremias are not produced when endodontic manipulations are confined to the root canal system.
