  • 5. DEVELOPMENT During the 8th week of IUL, there is condensation of the mesenchmye under the enamel organ- Dental papilla. The enamel organ enlarge and enclose the dental papilla in their central portion. Dental papilla controls the morphology & type of tooth to be formed. It shows: extensive proliferation of cells. www.indiandentalacademy.com high vascularity.
  • 6.  Following the differentiation of the IEE into ameloblasts, odontoblast differentiate from the peripheral cells of dental papilla. Well organized capillaries are found at beginning of dentinogenesis. Rim of the enamel organ(IEE & OEE) is the cervical loop. Root formation is carried out by the proliferation of cells at the cervical loop. www.indiandentalacademy.com

CORONAL PORTION It occupies the pulp chamber of the crown of the teeth. Pulp horns are projections into the cusp. It has six surfaces : occlusal,mesial,distal,buccal, lingual, floor. It constricts at the cervical region where it continues as the radicular portion. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • 11. RADICULAR PORTION It is the pulp occupying the pulp canals of the tooth. In the anterior tooth, it is single and the posterior tooth it is multiple. The radicular portion of the pulp is continous with the periapical tissues. It is fibrous and protects the neurovascular bundle. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • 13. PULP – DENTIN COMPLEX The dentinal tubules composed of dentinal fluid & the processes of the odontoblasts that respond to noxious stimulus together constitute the P-D complex. The length of the odontoblasts in the tubules – 0.1 – 1mm. There is outflow or inflow of the dentinal fluid due to the stimulus that excites the Od. Processes. Hypersensitivity is well explained by Hydrodynamic theory. Processes have paracrine regulation With the nerve endings in the tubules www.indiandentalacademy.com there by causing pain.

  • 97. DIFFUSE CALCIFICATIONS They appear as irregular deposits in the pulp. The pulp organ may be free of any pathology but may exhibit these changes in the roots. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • 98. CALCIFIC METAMORPHOSIS Results in partial or complete obliteration of pulp chamber. Luxation of the teeth as a result of trauma is the major cause. Teeth may present with a yellowish hue. Resembles cementum or bone along the walls. Disruption of blood flow leads to pulpal infarct and the cells from periodontium proliferates and replaces the infarct tissue. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • 99. AGE CHANGES Formation of SECONDARY DENTIN throughout life causes reduction in size of the pulp chamber and root canals. The ‘drop in’ feel of the bur is not felt in older teeth. ODONTOBLAST decrease in size and number and sometimes disappear in certain areas . Increase in the number and thickness of COLLAGEN FIBRES particularly in radicular pulp. Decrease in cellularity. Increase in the resistance of pulp against action of enzymes. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • 100. DENTAL MATERIALS AMALGAM High thermal conductivity,irritates pulp in deeper cavities. Needs an insulating base. GLASS IONOMERS Biocompatible to pulp. RMGIC can used as pulp capping agent. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • 101. ZINC OXIDE EUGENOL Has an antibacterial and anodyne effect. Higher concentration leads to chronic inflammation & thrombosis of blood vessels. ZINC PHOSPHATE Irritates the pulp (low ph) in deeper cavities. Must be used with a liner. DENTING BONDING AGENTS Monomer www.indiandentalacademy.com molecules present cause irritation of pulp when they come in contact with odontoblastic processes.
  • 102. RESIN BASED ADHESIVES The formation of hybrid layer secures the enamel - resin interface with a continous seal that acts as biometic barrier. FORMOCRESOL High degree of diffusion causes a chronic inflammation of pulp. Mutagenic and carcinogenic. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • 103. Pulp capping agent CALCUIM HYDROXIDE Intracanal medicament PULP CAPPING AGENT Introduced by Hermann in 1930. When it is applied directly over pulp, coagulative necrosis occurs in the adjacent tissue and inflammation of contigious tissue. It maintains a local state of alkalinity that is necessary for dentin formation. Beneath the region of coagulative necrosis, UEM cells differentiate into odontoblasts dentin formation occurs. Available as Dycal, Prisma VLC, Life, Nucap. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • 104. The root canal system is very complex and alsosubjected to a number of variations.so understanding theform, physiology, and function of pulp is necessary in theselection of treatment and the type of material to beused. www.indiandentalacademy.com
