Ultrastructural observations on the calcification of human dental pulp

  title={Ultrastructural observations on the calcification of human dental pulp},
  author={Dr. J. Appleton J. Appleton and M J Williams},
  journal={Calcified Tissue Research},
The calcifications in dental pulp appeared to consist of discrete, smooth-surfaced laminated denticles and irregularly shaped, non-laminated denticles, together with a diffuse calcification characterized by small foci scattered throughout the fibrous pulp matrix. Calcification appeared to be initiated in relation to the interfibrillar matrix, collagen fibres and connective tissue cells. In each case the inorganic phases showed a distinct morphology; electron diffraction suggested hydroxyapatite… CONTINUE READING
