Pulpal histology

By Dr. Vishaal Bhat on Tuesday, June 10, 2008 with 0 comments

See dentin and light layer is secondary dentin that odontoblasts have put down. Probably a cavity opposed to inner surface of dentin, and odontoblast are lined on inside of the tooth. Connective tissue has reticular and collagen fibres. Rest of pulp is ground substance, hyaluronic acid etc.

Pulp from tooth. Needs nutrients and oxygen, so there is blood supply. The microcirculation is that three to four arterioles are right under odontoblasts, run from apical to coronal direction, and venules are much higher than arterioles, more centrally located, one main central venule important in inflammation, drains excess fluid and blood out of the pulp, has protecteive function, same for lymphatic vessesl.
