Three dental hard tissues, i.e., cementum, dentin, and enamel, are resorbed by multinucleated cells referred to as "odontoclasts." These cells have morphological and functional characteristics similar to those of bone-resorbing osteoclasts. However, concerning enamel resorption, which is a process that may occur during tooth eruption, satisfactory ultrastructural data on odontoclastic resorption are still lacking. Ultrastructural and histochemical characteristics of odontoclasts resorbing… CONTINUE READING
