BACKGROUND Proper formation of cementum, a mineralized tissue lining the tooth root surface, is required for development of a functional periodontal ligament. Further, the presence of healthy cementum is considered to be an important criterion for predictable restoration of periodontal tissues lost as a consequence of disease. Despite the significance of cementum to general oral health, the mechanisms controlling development and regeneration of this tissue are not well understood and research… CONTINUE READING
