Innervation of the inflammatory periapical lesions

Louis Lin, Kaare Langeland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Specimens were taken from periapical lesions of ten cariously involved extracted teeth with radiolucencies. The lesions were examined with light and electron microscopes to determine the status of innervation. Nonmyelinated and myelinated nerve fibers were present, both intact and demyelinated, in severely inflamed tissue.
