  1. Cementum is the closest in composition to which of the following?

    - Bone
    - Enamel
    - Dentin
    - Dental pulp
    • Bone
    • Cementum is a bone-like mineral tissue whose primary function is to attach to Sharpey's fibers.
    • It is formed by cementoblasts in the PDL, as opposed to dentin which is formed by odontoblasts in the pulp and develops from the dental follicle (dental sac).
    • Resembles bone moreso than Dentin except, No innervation or blood vessels
    • Organic portion (50%) made from collagen and protein, inorganic (45%) made from calcium and hydroxyapatite.
    • Thickest portion at root apex, thinnest at the CEJ.
    • Two types of cementum (functionally with NO difference): Acellular (no cementocytes, predominates at coronal 2/3rds) and Cellular (called secondary, frequent at apical 3rd)
    • Bone: 50% inorganic, 25% water and 25% collagen.
  2. When using a high speed handpiece to remove caries from a tooth, the dentist must drill past the enamel into dentin. The first layer of dentin (at the DEJ) is called:

    - Intratubular dentin
    - Intertubular dentin
    - Mantle dentin
    - Circumpulpal dentin
    - Interglobular dentin
    • Mantle dentin, is the first predentin that forms and matures within the tooth. Mantle dentin shows a difference in the direction of the mineralized collagen fibers compared to the rest of the dentin, with the fibers perpendicular to the DEJ and has higher levels of mineralization.
    • Dentin that surrounds the pulpal wall is called circumpulpal dentin. This dentin makes up the bulk of the dentin in the tooth.
    • Primary dentin: formed before the completion of the apical foramen, more mineralized than 
    • Secondary dentin: formed after the completion of the apical foramen, less mineralized than first
    • Tertiary dentin: formed as a result of injury.
    • Each dental tubule contains the cytoplasmic cell process Tomes' fiber of an odontoblast
    • Fibrous matrix that odontoblasts secrete into dentin is mostly type 1 collagen.
  3. Sensory nerve fibers that originate from the inferior and superior alveolar nerves innervate the odontoblastic layer of the pulp cavity. These nerves enter the tooth through the apical foramen as myelinated nerve bundles. They branch to form the sub-odontoblastic nerve plexus of Raschkow which is separated from the odontoblasts by a:

    - Cell rich zone
    - Cell free zone (zone of Weil)
    - Fibroblastic later
    • Cell free zone (zone of Weil)
    • The pulp is the innermost tissue of the tooth formed from the central cells of the dental papilla.
    • Accessory canals: form when Hertwigs epithelial root sheath encounters a blood vessel during root formation, the root structure forms around the vessel.
    • Peripheral aspect of the dental pulp is referred to as the odontogenic zone, subadjacent to this zone is the cell-free zone (of Weil). This region contains bundles of reticular (Korff's) fibers.
    • Just under the cell free zone (of Weil) is a cell rich zone containing numerous fibroblasts (the predominant cell type of the pulp)
    • Medial to the cell rich zone is the deep pulp cavity that contains subodontoblastic plexus of Raschkow.
  4. Amelogenesis (the formation of enamel) begins at the:

    - Cementoenamel junction (CEJ)
    - Dentinoenamel junction (DEJ)
    - Cementodentinal junction (CDJ)
    - Mucogingival junction (MGJ)
    • Dentinoenamel junction (DEJ)
    • Amelogenesis occurs during the appositional stage of tooth development and is produces by ameloblast cells and is secreted by their Tomes' process, which faces the DEJ.
    • Odontoblasts begin dentin formation immediately before enamel formation by the ameloblasts. Dentinogenesis starts by laying dentin matrix moving toward the DEJ inward toward the pulp, adjacent to the pulpal surface.
    • DEJ is the area where tooth calcification begins.
    • Morphology of the DEJ is determined at the Bell stage.
    • Oldest enamel in a tooth is at the DEJ underlying a cusp.
  5. Pulpal involvement of a carious lesion in a young child is much more likely because:

    - Caries progress faster in primary teeth
    - Caries can enter primary teeth from the enlarged apical foramen
    - The pulp chamber is larger in primary teeth compared to permanent teeth
    - Reparative dentin is not as functional in primary teeth as it is in permanent teeth
    • The pulp chamber is larger in primary teeth compared to permanent teeth
    • Cells found in the pulp: Fibroblasts (most numerous), Odontoblasts (only cell bodies are located in the pulp), Undifferentiated mesenchymal cells, Lymphocytes, plasma cells and eosinophils
    • Pulp has two types of nerve fibers: Autonomic nerve fibers (unmyelinated) and afferent (sensory) fibers (myelinated)
    • Pulp capping is more successful in young teeth because:
    • Contains more cells (odontoblastic)
    • Large apical foramen
    • Very vascular
    • More tissue fluid
    • Fewer fibrous elements
  6. The main function of cementum is to provide rough surface anchorage for attachment of:

    - Transseptal fibers
    - Sharpey's fibers
    - Oblique fibers
    - Alveolar crest fibers
    • Sharpey's fibers
    • Cementum is composed of mineralized fibrous matrix cells (cementocytes). The fibrous matrix consists of both Sharpey's fibers and intrinsic nonperioseal fibers. Sharpey's fibers are the terminal portions of the principal fibers of the PDL.
    • Other functions of cementum: Compensates, for bone loss of tooth surface due to occlusal wear by apical cementum deposits throughout life. Protects, the root surface from resorption during vertical eruption and tooth movement.
    • Cementum differs from enamel because it contains collagen fibers and cellular components.
    • Cementoids are immature and uncalcified, and cementocytes get trapped within the cementum they prodouce (like bone)

    • Increase: number of collagen fibers, and calcifications within the pulp.
    • The only type of nerve ending found in the pulp is free nerve ending, which is a specific receptor for pain (no matter the source of stimulation, heat, cold, pressure, the response will be PAIN)
    • Pulp contains both myelinated (sensory) and unmyelinated (sympathetic) nerve fibers that are afferent.
    • Proprioeptors are not found in the pulp.

    - Hunter-Schreger bands
    - Lines of retzius
    - Perikymata
    - Neonatal line
    • Neonatal line
    • Since enamel formation begins at the top of the cusp, the ameloblasts create an artifact called Lines of retzius. Where these lines terminate on the surface they create tiny vallyes around the tooth circumference called Perikymata or imbrication lines of pickerill.
    • The neonatal line marks the division between enamel made before and after birth.
    • Enamel tufts: fan-shaped, hypocalcifed enamel rods that project from the DEJ to the enamel proper.
    • Enamel spindles: short dentinal tubes near the DEJ, they may serve as pain receptors.

    • The new alveolar bone deposited during orthodontic movement is best described as intramembranous.
    • Osteoblasts (derived from mesenchyme): bone forming cells that secrete collagen, when they have been trapped in the osteoid they are osteocytes
    • Osteoclasts (derived from stem cells in bone marrow): Essential for bone remodeling and modeling, resorptive activity allows for permanent renewing of bone.
    • During active tooth eruption, there is an apposition of bone on all surfaces of the alveolar crest and walls of bony socket.
    • Permanent teeth move occlusally and bucally when erupting.
  15. Apical abscesses of which teeth have a marked tendency to produce cervical spread of infection most rapidly?

    • Bundle bone
    • Alveolar process is that part of the maxilla and mandible that forms and supports the sockets of the teeth. Consists of 2 parts
    • 1. Alveolar bone proper: thin layer of compact bone that is a specialized continuation of cortical plate and forms the tooth socket or alveolus. Lamina dura, is a horse shoe shaped white line that corresponds to alveolar bone proper. composed of bundle bone, which provides a course surface for ligament fiber attachment.
    • 2. Supporting alveolar bone: bone that surrounds the alveolar bone proper and gives support to the socket. Made up of Cortical plate, composed of lingual and facial plates of compact bone and Spongy bone, fills in area between cortical plates and alveolar bone proper.

    - Perikymata
    - Dental papilla
    - Dental follice
    - Oral epithelium
    • Oral epithelium
    • Also known as Nasmyth's membrane, the secondary enamel cuticle is the thin membrane covering newly erupted teeth. Ectodermally derived, produced by the ameloblast cell after it produces the enamel rods.
    • This membrane is abraded by mastication and cleaning. Eventually replaced by an organic deposit called the pellicle, that if not removed causes caries and periodontal disease.
  18. A physician determines that a patient with acromegaly will develop a skeletal class III occlusion due to excessive growth of the mandible. What causes the formation of resting lines as seen in the cortical bone of the mandible?

    - Growth of mandible by appositional growth
    - Growth of mandible by interstitial growth
    - Growth of mandible by both interstitial and appositional growth
    • Growth of mandible by appositional growth
    • Bone apposition is the deposition of successive layers of bone on those already present.
    • Due to its rigid structure, bone can grow only by appositional growth. Cartilage can grow by both appositional and interstitial growth.
    • Both maxilla and mandible form from tissues of the first branchial arch (mandibular), both start out as small centers of intramembranous ossificaiton.
  19. Dentin is considered a living tissue because of odontoblastic cell processes known as:

    - Triacetate fiber
    - Tomes' fiber
    - Tag fiber
    - Korff's fiber
    • Tomes' fiber
    • These odontoblastic processes (Tomes' fibers) occupy the dental tubules (one per odontoblast)
    • It is because of these cell processes that dentin is considered a living tissue and produces stimuli (fluid movement), sclerotic and reparative dentin.
    • * Odontoblasts begin dentin formation immediately before ameloblasts begin enamel formation. They lay down a dentin matrix moving from the DEJ inward toward the pulp.
    • * Amelogenesis is process of enamel matrix that occurs during the appositional stage of tooth development. Enamel matrix is secreted from each ameloblast from its Tomes' process.
    • Cell body of odontoblast lies in pulp cavity.

    - Primary dentin
    - Secondary dentin
    - Tertiary dentin
    - Mantle dentin
    • Tertiary dentin, produced rapidly in response to localized injury to exposed dentin. It tries to seal off the area, this the term reparative.
    • Primary dentin: dentin formed in a tooth before the completion of the apical foramen of the root.
    • Secondary dentin: is the dentin formed after completion of apical foramen of the tooth.
    • Sclerotic dentin: fills blind tracts with mineral, appears shiny, dark and smooth. Seals off dental tubules to prevent bacteria from entering pulp cavity
  21. The dental lamina, a thickening of the oral epithelium that produces the swellings of the enamel organs, is first seen histologically around the:

    - Second week in utero
    - 6th week in utero
    - 10th week in utero
    - 4th week in utero
    • 6th week in utero
    • By the 3rd week after conception, the stomodeum is formed. Over the next few weeks the tongue, jaws and palate develop. During the 6th to 7th week, the formation of the teeth commences. By the 8th wee all of the primary incisors, canines and molars are discernible.
    • Tooth development is initiated by the mesenchyme's inductive influence on the overlying ectoderm. Early in the 6th week, there is a thickening of the oral epithelium, as u-shaped bands are called the dental lamina, they follow the curvature of the jaws.
    • On the dental lamina, swellins called enamel organ, are produced, inside this organ condensed mesenchyme becomes the dental papilla. Surrounding both the enamel organ and the dental papilla is a capsule-like structure of the mesenchyme called the dental-sac.
    • The enamel organ separated from the dental lamina after the first layer of dentin is deposited.
  22. The reduced enamel epithelium forms as the collapse of what structure?

    - Cervical loop
    - Hertwig's epithelial sheath
    - Enamel organ
    - Dental lamina
    • Enamel organ
    • Following the formation of the crown, the enamel organ collapses to form the reduced enamel epithelium that covers the tooth through eruption
    • The reduced enamel epithelium is important in the formation of the dentogingival junction, which is the area where the enamel and the oral epithelium come together as the tooth erupts in the mouth. This forms the initial junctional epithelium, which later migrates down the tooth to assume its normal position.
    • The junctional epithelium attaches to the tooth by using hemidesmosomes. The apical extent of the junctional epithelium is usually the cementoenamel junction.
  23. Which structure functions to shape the root (or roots) and to induce dentin formation in the root area so that it is continuous with coronal dentin?

    - Dental papilla
    - Dental lamina
    - Dental sac
    - Hertwig's sheath
    - Enamel
    • Hertwig's sheath
    • Structure responsible for root development is the cervical loop. It is a bilayer rim at the most cervical part of the enamel, it grows deeper into the surrounding mesenchyme of the dental sac, moving away from the newly completed crown area to enclose more of the dental papilla tissue and form the Hertwig's epithelial root sheath (HERS).
    • Hertwig's sheath is an epithelial diaphragm that is derived from the inner and outer enamel epithelium of the enamel organ, produces the shaped of the roots and induces formation of root dentin.
    • Accessory root canals are formed by a break or perforation in the root sheath before the root dentin is deposited.
  24. Just before the first layer of dentin forms (mantle dentin), differentiating inner enamel epithelium cells (ameloblasts) secrete some enamel proteins, which do not accumulate as a layer.

    These first proteins, together with growth factors, may play a role in the epithelial-mesenchymal signaling that leads to the terminal differentiation of odontoblasts, possibly by interacting with components of the basal lamina that separates them.

    - Which statements are true and false?
    • Both statements are true.
    • Although enamel protein secretion occurs before mantle dentin is visible on the crown, these proteins do not assemble as a layer until dntin is formed.
    • Histiogenesis of a tooth:
    • 1: Elongation of the inner enamel epithelial cells of the enamel organ; this influences mesenchymal cells on the periphery of the dental papilla to differentiate into odontoblasts
    • 2: Differentiation into odontoblasts
    • 3: Deposition of the first layer of dentin
    • 4: Deposition of the first layer of enamel
    • * Tooth development is dependent on a series of sequential cellular interactions between epithelial and mesenchymal components of the tooth germ. Once the extomesenchyme influences the oral epithelium to grow down into the ectomesenchyme and become a tooth germ, the above events occur.
  25. The four distinct layers of the enamel organ include all of the following EXCEPT?

    - Outer enamel epithelium
    - Inner enamel epithelium
    - Stratum granulosum
    - Stratum intermedium
    - Stellate reticulum
    • Stratum granulosum
    • Four layers of enamel organ (OEE): the outer layer of the organ (very thin) outlines the shape of the future developing enamel organ
    • Inner enamel epithelium (IEE): innermost cellular layer of the enamel organ (very thin), In this layer the cells will become ameloblasts and produce enamel.
    • Stratum intermedium: this area lies immediately lateral to the inner enamel epithelium (ticker), seems to be essential to enamel formation (prepares nutrients for the IEE).
    • Stellate reticulum: central core and fills the bulk of enamel organ. Contains a lot of intercellular fluid (rich in albumin) that is lost just before enamel deposition.
    • *After enamel formation is completed, all of these structures become one and form the reduced enamel epithelium. It is important for the Dentogingival junction and forms the initial junctional epithelium.
  26. Important developmental changes begin late in the cap stage and continue during the transition of the tooth germ cap to bell. Through these changes, termed _____, a mass of epithelial cells transforms itsself into morphologically and functionally distinct components.

    - Initiation
    - Apposition
    - Histodifferentiation
    - Reflexion
    • Histodifferentiation
    • Initiation (6-7 weeks): ectoderm lining the stomodeum gives rise to oral epithelium and then to dental lamina. Induction is the main process involved (congenital absence of teeth is due to interruption in this phase)
    • Bud stage (8th week): growth of dental lamina into bud that penetrates growing ectomesenchyme, Proliferation is the main process invovlved
    • Cap stage (9-10 weeks): enamel organ turns into a cap, surrounding the mass of the dental papilla and surrounded by the mass of the dental sac, thus forming the tooth germ. proliferation, differentiation and morphogenesis are the proceses involved. Dens in dente, germination, fusion and tubercle formation occur here.
    • Bell stage (11-12 weeks): final shaping of the tooth, cells differntiate into diff tissue forming cells (ameloblasts, odontoblasts, cementoblasts and fibroblasts) Histdifferentiation and morphodifferentiation (macrodontia and microdontia, amelo/dentino-genesis imperfecta) occur here.
    • Apposition (varies per tooth): differentiated cells begin to deposit dental tissues where they belong (enamel, dentin, etc..) conscrescence, enamel pearls occur here
  27. A cementicle is a spherical, calcified body that lies in the periodontal ligament or fused to the cementum of a tooth. Which developmental remnant is the most likely site of ectopic cementum nucleation.

    - Junctional epithelium
    - Cervical enamel extensions
    - Cementoenamel junction
    - Epithelial rests of malassez
    • Epithelial rests of malassez, are the remnants of Hertqig's epithelial root sheath and can be found as groups of epithelial cells in the periodontal ligament. Some of these rests can degenerate and others become calcified and form cementicles.
    • Purpose of Hertwig's sheath is to shape the root (or roots) and induce dentin formation in the root area so it is continuous with the coronal dentin.
    • * The continuuity of Hertwig's epithelial root sheath must be broken in order for cementum to be deposited during the tooth development (cementogenesis)

    • Emissary veins: which are valveless, connect the dural venous sinuses with the veins of the scalp.
    • An emissary vein: found in the foramen ovale, is the means of communication between the pterygoid plexus and the cavernous sinus.
    • The internal jugular vein begins in the jugular foramen as a continuation of the sigmoid sinus, receives blood from the brain, face, and the neck.
    • Generally, the veins of the head and neck DO NOT have valves.
  37. Which vein provides the primary superficial drainage of the face?

    - Supratrochlear
    - Superficial temporal
    - Retromandibular
    - Facial
    Facial, valveless veins that provide the primary superficial drainage of the face. Tributaries include the deep facial vein, which drains the pterygoid venous plexus of the intratemporal fossa.
  38. Which of the following are considered to be primary resistance vessels?

    - Large arteries
    - Arterioles
    - Capillaries
    - Large veins
    • Arterioles
    • Veins: have thinner walls than arteries but have larger diameters because of the low blood pressures required for venous return to the heart.
    • Valves in the veins of the neck, arms and legs prevent venous backflow.
    • Arteries carry oxygenated blood and veins carry deoxygenated blood, with the exception of the pulmonary vessels and some fetal vessels.
  39. At the level of the inferior border of the 1st right costal cartilage, the branchiocephalic veins unite to form the:

    - External jugular vein
    - Internal jugular vein
    - Retromandibular vein
    - Superior vena cava
    • Superior vena cava
    • Three main veins of the neck
    • External jugular vein: begins near the angle of the mandible, descends and terminates in the subclavian vein. drains most of the scalp and side of the face. Internal jugular foramen in the posterior cranial fossa as the direct continuation of the sigmoid sinus, merges with the subclavian vein to form the brachiocephalic vein.
    • Anterior jugular vein, smallest of the jugular vein, arises near the hyoid from the suberficial mandibular veins.
    • Brachial, basilic and cephalic all drain the upper limbs into the axillary vein at the level of the border of the 1st rib to form the subclavian vein.
    • Femoral, internal and external iliac become the common iliac vein.
    • Inferior vena cava begins at L5
  40. At the medial angle of the eye, the facial vein communicates with the ______, which drains into the cavernous sinus.

    - Occipital vein
    - Posterior auricular vein
    - Superficial temporal vein
    - Superior ophthalmic vein
    • Superior ophthalmic vein , communicates with the facial vein in front. The inferior ophthalmic communicates through the inferior orbital fissue with the pterygoid venous plexus. BOTH pass backward through the superior orbital fissure and drain into the cavernous sinus.
    • Danger tirangle of the face, because of no valve and backflow, the dural sinuses may become infected through the deep facial vein and the superior ophthalmic vein.
  41. Which dural venous sinus lies in the convex attached border of the falx cerebri?

    - Cavernous sinus
    - Transverse sinus
    - Superior sagittal sinus
    - straight sinus
    • Superior sagittal sinus
    • The dural venous sinuses are endothelial-lines spaces between the periosteal and the meningeal layers of the dura. Large veins from the surface of the brain empty into these sinuses and most of the blood from the brain ultimately drains through them into the internal jugular veins.
  42. All of the following are characteristic features of veins EXCEPT:

    - Muscular tunica media
    - Thick tunica adventitia
    - Larger lumen
    - Valves
    - Vasa vasorum
    • Muscular tunica media, veins have a thin tunica media with few muscle fibers/
    • Arteries: Large (elastic), Small (muscular). Arteries have a very thick tunica media, that contains a lot of elastic fibers (some smooth muscle fibers)
    • Arterioles: small vessels, small lumen, thicker tunica media with a lot of smooth muscle fibers.
    • Capillaries: small vessels, walls have endothelial layer only.
    • Venules: Small vessels, walls have endothelium and very thin tunica adventitia, larger venules have a thicker tunica adventitia.
    • Veins: Thin tunica media with a few smooth muscle fibers, thick tunica adventitia with little elastic tissue. some contain valves and vasa vasorum.
