The papillary body of the human oral mucosa was studied at six different sites. Biopsy and autopsy material from 57 individuals, 11-81 years of age, was split chemically along the basal lamina and the epithelium-connective tissue interface examined by light and scanning electron microscopy. Morphometric techniques were employed in order to determine: epithelial thickness, height and density of connective tissue papillae and the percentage of basal epithelial surfaces occupied by them. In the… CONTINUE READING
