Acute pulpitis is one of the common causes of tooth pain. TACAN (Tmem120a) is a newly identified ion channel that senses mechanical pain. In this experiment, we studied the expression of the TACAN ion channel in the trigeminal ganglia in a rat model of pulpitis to explore the correlation between the expression of this ion channel and inflammatory pain.
