abstract

  • Unilateral removal of the inferior dental nerve and superior cervical ganglion in rats produced no alteration in the quantitative deposition of dentin in developing incisors as shown by double tetracycline labeling. This finding, however, may be peculiar to rats because of the apparently singular innervation of these teeth.
