Pressure Pain Threshold of Mucosa After Tooth Extraction Under Removable Denture Bases


Abstract - This study explored the pressure pain threshold (PPT) of the mucosa after tooth extraction. The PPTs of the wounded mucosa of eight volunteer subjects were observed at 7, 30, and 90 days after tooth extraction. The PPTs at 30 days and 90 days were approximately two and three times higher, respectively, than those at 7 days. As time passed, the values for the PPTs after tooth extraction increased in all regions. At 90 days after tooth extraction, the PPTs are about 97% recovered compared to the PPTs of the contralateral points.
