Fine structure of adrenergic nerve fibers in human periodontal ligament.

Abstract

The presence of adrenergic nerve fibers was demonstrated ultrastructurally in the human periodontal ligament obtained from extracted premolar teeth from 8 young patients. The nerve endings were located close to arterioles. The results suggest that they seem to control blood flow in the human periodontal ligament.
