Abstract : Carbon dioxide snow was used to test the teeth of two dogs for periods of five, fifteen, sixty, and one-hundred and twenty-seconds. Using the scanning electron microscope and histological evaluation, the cold could not be shown to have affected the surface of the enamel or to have caused pulpal damage. (Author)
