Evaluation of the vitality of pulp is of critical importance in the diagnostic process in dentistry practice. Conventional pulp test methods are based on pulpal innervation and sometimes give false positive or false negative responses. In addition, these methods are subjective tests because they evaluate the response of the patient to stimuli. Pulp vitality means that blood support is present in the tissue. Recently, it has been observed that Laser Doppler Flowmeter, a non-invasive and painless electro-optic technique allowing semi-quantitative recording of pulpal blood flow, is being used in the determination of pulp vitality. The aim of this review is to describe Laser Doppler Flovmeter which is a non-invasive method for evaluating the viability of the tissues and to report the areas where this method can be used.

Pulpa vitalitesinin değerlendirilmesi diş hekimliği pratiğinde teşhis aşamasında kritik bir öneme sahiptir. Geleneksel pulpa canlılık test yöntemleri pulpal innervasyona dayalıdır ve bazen yanlış pozitif ya da yanlış negatif cevaplar verebilmektedir. Ayrıca, bu yöntemler hastanın uyaranlara cevabını değerlendirdiklerinden subjektif testlerdir. Pulpa vitalitesi, kan desteğinin doku içinde bulunduğu anlamına gelmektedir. Son zamanlarda pulpa vitalitesinin belirlenmesinde pulpal kan akımının yarı nicel kaydına izin veren non invaziv ve ağrısız elektro optik bir teknik olan Lazer Doppler Flovmetre’nin kullanılmaya başlandığı görülmektedir. Bu derleme ile dokuların canlılığının değerlendirilmesinde non-invaziv bir yöntem olan Lazer Doppler Flovmetre cihazının anlatılması ve bu yöntemin kullanılabileceği alanların bildirilmesi amaçlanmıştır.
