Certain molecule is necessary for tooth root formation
from Dentistry Today
The International and American Associations for Dental Research recently made a discovery that could be pivotal for tooth root formation. The protein called ß-catenin is expressed in odontoblasts and is required for root formation. The Chonbuk National Korea School of Dentistry wrote the research paper and it appeared in the Journal of Dental Research. The tooth root and the surrounding periodontium maintain the tooth in the jaw.
