Abstract

Microbes are the main cause of caries. Once these microbes reaches pulp if the tooth has to be saved
endodontic treatment is the only option. If the treatment is not initiated microbes can reach the periapical
region and cause apical periodontitis and abscess. Proper understanding of the microbes that cause pulpal
infection and pain will aid in bringing down the infection. This article discusses about the microbes that
cause pulpal infection.
