The main hard tissues of teeth are composed of dentin and enamel, synthesized by the mesenchyme-derived odontoblasts and the epithelial-derived ameloblasts, respectively. Odontoblasts are highly differentiated post-mitotic cells secreting the organic matrix of dentin throughout the life of the animal. Pathological conditions such as carious lesions and(More)
Odontoblasts are highly differentiated postmitotic cells, which under pathological conditions such as carious lesions and dental injuries may degenerate and be replaced by other pulp cells. A recent work showed that this physiological event can be reproduced in an in vitro assay system. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effects of(More)
