Abstract

Summary. The value of a tactile hardness test in indirect pulp capping was investigated by comparing hardness values with the biochemical analysis for phosphorus. Statistically significant differences were found between the 6‐month evaluation groups recorded as soft or medium and those recorded as hard. However, there were no differences between groups evaluated as soft or medium before or after treatment. Copyright © 1985, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
