Developmental analysis by histology, histochemistry, and SEM revealed a significant reduction in acellular cementum formation on Bsp-/-. Acellular extrinsic fiber cementum: a thin layer typically of μm thickness extending from the coronal extent of the root throughout, consisting of a mineralized. Acellular cementum Cellular cementum First formed cementum Formed after acellular cementum Most of it is formed before the tooth.

They move the processes synchronously and periodically and cause a periodic change in intrinsic fiber arrangement. In conclusion in this section, the intermediate cementum is a part of dentin, not cementum, and this term may be reconsidered to avoid unnecessary confusion.

Periodontal breakdown in the Dmp1 null mouse model of hypophosphatemic rickets. Hence, the intermediate cementum will be re-examined here.

In this situation, the discrepancy in surface area could be generated between the epithelial sheath and the growing root. Cementoblasts are viewed from the cementum side. Cementoblasts cementkm fibroblast-like shape and collagen fibrils subsequently appear on the exposed dentin surface. Epithelial Dlx-2 homeogene expression and cementogenesis.

The descriptors for the classes of cementum described above can be used in various combinations to more precisely describe a specific type of cementum. Dental anatomy and embryology.

Parotid gland duct Submandibular gland duct Sublingual gland duct. Section 3 indicates an area slightly distant from the cementum surface. As a result, the epithelial sheath is stretched out and covers only small portions of the root surface.


Some cementoblasts are embedded as cementocytes in the rapidly growing matrix. In accordance with this classification, three major types of cementum are distinguishable [2][3][4][5]. Teeth Periodontology Human mouth anatomy.

Hence, various types of CIFC, i. Most of the data, however, have been obtained from rodents such as the mouse and rat.

Hence, the premise 1 of the epithelial origin hypothesis is cemntum supportive evidence. Introduction Cementum, or root cementum, is a mineralized tissue covering the entire root surface. Aubin8 G.

Histology of human cementum: Its structure, function, and development

In contrast, some investigators found a fibril-poor, non-collagenous protein-rich layer at the cemento-dentinal junction and proposed that the proteins served as an adhesive of cementum and dentin [10][11][12]. Modulation of crystal formation by bone phosphoproteins: Bone sialoprotein is localized to the root surface during cementogenesis. However, the quantity of DNA available in dentin is affected by age and dental disease, whereas that in cementum is not.

Localization of perlecan and heparanase in Hertwig’s epithelial root sheath during root formation in mouse molars. In extrinsic fiber-containing CIFC, the extrinsic fibers, like those in AEFC, show branching and anastomosing, and are encircled by the intrinsic fibers [3][7][14] Fig. If EMT does not occur, how can the cell number reduction be explained? Fiber fringe elongates and begins to connect with periodontal ligament fibers. For SEM analysis, extracted and cleansed molars were osmium-coated.

Cementum [1] is a specialized calcified substance covering the root of a tooth. On the basis of elaborate histological observations, it is now established that the two tissues are homologous. In histological sections where the cemento-dentinal junction is clearly differentiated, the intermediate cementum exists on the dentin side of the junction and there is no boundary between the intermediate cementum and dentin Fig. Arrowheads in B indicate the granular layer of Tomes.


Hard palate Soft palate Palatine raphe Incisive papilla. C Extrinsic fibers are branching and anastomosing.

The fibrous structure of the cemento-dentinal junction in human molars shown by scanning electron microscopy combined with NaOH-maceration. The role of BSP in acellular cementogenesis is likely to be in promoting mineralization at the root surface to anchor PDL fibers and provide strong attachment acellulad the tooth to the alveolar bone.

Formation of alternate lamellar pattern in the advanced cellular cementogenesis in human teeth. Three sections are divided.

Some cracking is evident as an artifact of sample preparation. We have demonstrated that reduction of PP iin turn, promotes increased acellular cementum formation Foster et al.
