  • fHE unique arrangement of the tissues of the molar teeth and supporting tissues of the guinea pig afford investigators an opportunity to study several types of epithelial and connective tissues within a restricted area, under a state of constant synthesis and breakdown. The molar teeth grow continually and are worn off at the ocelusal surface at a relatively constant rate. The rate of growth is such that one can view, in a single section, the happenings that have occurred within the tissues… CONTINUE READING
