Dental A to Z

Dental A to Z

Also in O:


A specialised cell that is responsible for laying down the calcified substance called dentine that surrounds and protects the pulp tissues. Odontoblasts remain active throughout life and are continually laying down new dentine during the ageing process. It gradually seals up the minute channels previously occupied by nerve fibres and reduces tooth sensitivity.
