Biology of root resorption in deciduous teeth. Review of the literature

Scarola V., Galmozzi A.


PDF


Aim of this paper, is to examine, with a review of the literature the different aspects of physiological process of root resorption of deciduous teeth. The process of development of mouth and teeth and their structure is also described. Studies made during the last period, in most part by Japanese authors, improved our knowledge about the process of root resorption of deciduous teeth, even if many aspects are still unknown. The involvement of the pulp and the periodontal ligament and the presence of enzimatic activity and immunologic cells have been confirmed; all these elements seem to have a definite role in the process of root resorption of the deciduous teeth.
