Title: Dentinal tubules in longitudinal section of tooth
Thin ground section, polarizing microscopy (optical axes of the polarizing plates are crossed at 60°), human adult.
Slightly oblique section close to the dentinoenamel junction:
It shows dentinal tubules depicted by brown-stained stubble structures containing odontoblastic processes (Tomes’ fibers) in a semi-three dimensional way. Numerous fine branches of these processes are obvious in dentin.
