Microradiography and fluorescence microscopy of bone remodeling on the basal crypt of permanent mandibular premolars in dogs during eruption

Connective Tissue Research, 32(1-4):171-181.

Alveolar bone of erupting teeth was studied in order to define the types of calcified tissues deposited as well as the rate of tooth growth. The third (P3) and fourth (P4) mandibular premolars of 30 dogs aged 12-24 weeks were analyzed by microradiography and microscopy in fluorescent and ordinary light. The bone plate separating P3 and P4 from the mandibular canal presented a complex arrangement of lamellar and woven bone, and even of chondroid tissue. During the pre-eruptive phase, this plate shifted towards the base of the mandible by means of selective resorption and apposition activities. As soon as the furcation was formed, bone apposition appeared on the alveolar side and became the main activity under P3 at the outset of eruption. Under the roots of P4 it occurred 4 weeks later. Dynamic morphometry in fluorescence microscopy showed that eruption progressed faster than the radicular growth. The formation of interradicular bone underwent the same acceleration as the eruption. However, though the tissues were formed at a high rate, it cannot be inferred therefrom that they are responsible for tooth shifting. They might just fill the space left by the erupting tooth.
