8 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
basal bone
derived from regular mesenchyme
alveolar process
derived from ectomesenchyme

Forms in response to odontogenesis

If you have no tooth, you wont get any alveolar bone
bundle bone of the alveolus proper
AKA Cribiform Plate/Lamina Dura
Part of Alveolar Process

Where Sharpey's Fibers and PDL fibers insert
What does the angle of the alveolar crest look like
It should be parallel to the connective CEJ's of adjacent teeth
Protein phase of Alveolar Bone
COnsists of
Type I collagen (90%)
Type II, IX, X present during would healing
What did Sequential guanidine extraction prove
all of the major collagen components are the same in all 5 tissues: gingival CT, cementum, PDL, alveolar bone, dentin
Bone vs Cementum
Cementum lacks Collagen Types II, IX, and X

Both show appositional lines rich in Osteopontin

Cementum does not function as reservoir for minerals as Bone does
Which cementum is closer in phenotype to bone, acellular or cellular
Cellular cementum is closer

Acellular cementum lacks Collagen Type I, II, Osteocalcin, TGF-b, IGF-I, etc
