Reversible is transient and the pulp returns to normal. Irreversible is not transient, and the pulp eventually degenerates and dies. Then there is an abscess.

Occasionally, but not often, the pulp becomes inflamed but the patient does not have pain. It transitions to a necrotic pulp with no symptoms. Personally, I think this is because some patients just have a high pain threshold.
