Abstract

The aim of this work was to study the structure of dental pulp (mainly the connective tissue fibre and odontoblasts) during the active production of dentine in relation to the age of the patient. The pulps of the teeth extracted for orthodontic reasons from a population of 10–50 year-olds were investigated with the help of a transmission electron microscope (TEM) and a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Condensation of the small collagen fibres and fibrils around the morphotic elements of the dental pulp were found more often in the elderly patients.
