Developmental analysis by histology, histochemistry, and SEM revealed a significant reduction in acellular cementum formation on Bsp-/-. Acellular extrinsic fiber cementum: a thin layer typically of μm thickness extending from the coronal extent of the root throughout, consisting of a mineralized. Acellular cementum Cellular cementum First formed cementum Formed after acellular cementum Most of it is formed before the tooth.

Some have a fibrillar collagenous matrix, while others do not. Because of the apposition of cementum over the dentin, the dentinocemental junction DCJ is formed.

Findings supportive aellular the classical mesenchymal hypothesis have also accumulated in in vivo studies using mouse and rat teeth [56][58][59][69][70][71]. BSP is an extracellular matrix protein present in bone and cementum. The superficial dentin layer in rat molars is a very narrow, fibril-poor tissue and obviously different from the mantle dentin which consists of densely packed dentin matrix fibers [27][32][33][34][35].

Role of Hertwig’s epithelial root sheath cells in tooth root development. J Biol Buccale Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. These cementoblasts develop from undifferentiated mesenchymal cells in the connective tissue of the dental follicle or sac.

In histological sections where the cemento-dentinal junction is clearly differentiated, the intermediate cementum exists on the dentin side of the junction and there is no boundary between acellulad intermediate cementum and dentin Fig. Primary antibodies included rabbit anti-BSP 1: National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. The CEJ may exhibit all of these interfaces in an individual’s oral cavity, and there is even considerable variation when one tooth ecmentum traced circumferentially.

Taken together, to date there is no evidence to support the alternative epithelial hypothesis in in vivo acelular.

Generally, AEFC covers cervical root surfaces in both permanent and deciduous teeth. C Root formation proceeds almost straight, whereas the epithelial sheath maintains the tapered shape.


The premise 2 is still controversial, whether the acelllular matrix is a cementoblast product or epithelial sheath cell product is not yet determined.

Uses authors parameter link.

In concluding this section, the classical mesenchymal hypothesis is still convincing, namely cementoblasts derive from dental follicle and no epithelial sheath cells transform into cementoblasts. B Scanning electron micrograph showing the alternating lamellae.

Hence, in the strict sense the fibril bundles are not extrinsic fibers. Open in a separate window.

Cementum – Wikipedia

Some cementoblasts are embedded as cementocytes in the rapidly growing matrix. Anatomy of the mouth. Thereafter, an intensely hematoxylin-stainable, PAS-positive matrix appears in the superficial dentin layer and forms the cemento-dentinal junction [27][32][33][34][35]. Dental anatomy and embryology. This interface is not as defined, either clinically or histologically, as that of the dentinoenamel junction DEJgiven that cementum and dentin are of common embryological background, unlike that of enamel and dentin.

Acellular afibrillar cementum AAC AAC consists of a mineralized matrix containing neither collagen fibers nor cementocytes. Dentistry involving supporting structures of teeth Periodontology.

In addition to its inclusion in bone extracellular matrix, BSP is present in both acellular and cellular cementum MacNeil et al. Vermilion border Frenulum of lower lip Labial commissure of mouth Philtrum. Please review our privacy policy. In other words, according to the ratio of the two requirements, various types cemenyum cementum, i.

The proteoglycans of human cementum: Ends of the fibrils intermingles with predentin matrix fibers. The intermediate cementum has confused dental histologists since it first appeared in the literature and its origin is still controversial in the dental histological field. In summary, results from these studies show, for the first time, that BSP is critical for acellular cementum formation and periodontal attachment. The second type had wing-like and finger-like processes.

Cementoblasts surround principal fibers PF in cylindrical compartments with wing-like processes.

BSP is present in cementum, the hard tissue covering the tooth root that anchors periodontal ligament PDL attachment. Hence, previous reports on histology of human cementum have contained some questionable descriptions, probably due to incorrect comparison of human and rodent cementum. Conversely, BSP over-expression increased osteoclastic activity Valverde et al.

Ten Cate’s Oral Histology 8 ed. In this situation, the discrepancy in surface area could be generated between the epithelial sheath and the growing root.

Abstract Bone sialoprotein BSP is an extracellular matrix protein found in mineralized tissues of the skeleton and dentition. Where the initial dentin mineralization starts, the external and internal surface of dentin is not yet mineralized, and thus unmineralized dentin, i.

Because of their dense aceklular, the individual Sharpey’s fibers that form the bulk of the matrix may no longer be identifiable as individual fibers within the cementum layer.

At 14 post-natal days dpna basophilic layer of acellular cementum covered the root dentin in WT mice Figs. Full view of a mandibular molar left and a maxillary incisor right. As traced from left to right, the fibril arrays appear to rotate clockwise. Essential of oral histology and embryology. It is believed that the extrinsic fibers are secreted by fibroblasts and partly cementoblasts and that the intrinsic fibers are secreted by only cementoblasts.

The cementoblasts of this type extended the processes together in the same direction on the CIFC surface where the alternating lamellae were generating [16][17][18] Fig.

In conclusion in this section, the intermediate cementum is a part of dentin, not cementum, and this term may be reconsidered to avoid unnecessary confusion.
