The innervation of the rat incisor pulp has been studied using transmission electron microscopy and light microscopy. Transverse sections of mandibular incisor pulp (380-460 gm rats) from numerous positions in the long axis of the tooth were examined systematically in the electron microscopy. Quantitative data on total axon populations were obtained. The nerve fibers were found to pass through the lingual half of the pulp from the apical end to within 2 mm of the incisal tip. Although the nerve… CONTINUE READING
