In these cases, the formed bridge is located in the affected area, with an ortodentine type of organization, in contrast to what was observed in treatments performed with calcium hydroxide, which showed cell inclusions similar to osteodentine. (43)
The final stage of this reaction would be the cortical bone-like pattern or "osteodentine" named by some authors (Holan; Piattelli & Trisi).
The authors described this calcified material as "osteodentine" and they referred that it appeared to be reparative in nature.
The secretory mechanism of odontoblasts may also be affected as excessive osteodentine formation was observed in irradiated rats [87, 88].
The tooth also showed osteodentine in several parts along the occluded pulp cavity (Fig.
Surfaces exposed where denticles have been broken across show an internal structure of osteodentine and pallial dentine (Fig.
