describe the development of teeth
1. invagination of oral ectoderm forms dental lamina
2. dental buds form at base of dental lamina
3. dental buds differentiate into inverted cups called enamel organs, which produce deciduous teeth
what is dental papilla derived from?
and what does it form?
dental papilla is derived from neural crest
forms from tooth dentin and pulp
occurs in each deciduous tooth as downward growth of root exerts pressure against alveolar bone, and the crown is forced upward to break through enamel organ and gingiva
describe the development of permanent teeth
a second bud forms off of the dental lamina. the growing permanent tooth puts pressure on the root of the deciduous tooth, causing the root to be resorbed and the deciduous tooth to fall out
what is an example of ectopic teeth?
ear teeth in horses
what are the 3 cell types seen in teeth
apical processes (Tome's processes) secrete slightly mineralized rods; mineralization initiates in rods, forming enamel (the hardest substance in the body)
neural crest origin
- deposit predentin at the dentinoenamel junction
- predentin is mineralized, forming dentin
- odontoblastic processes extend as odontoblasts retreat
forms cementum which binds dentin to alveolar bone via peridontal ligaments
