Abstract

Of all the tissues of the human system, the morphology of Pulp is most complex. The shape of the pulp system is a reflection of the outline of the surface of the crown and root. In other words, the pulp tends to be a miniaturization of the tooth surface. The pulp cavity is the central cavity within the tooth and is entirely enclosed by dentine except at the apical foramen. Pulp is a highly resistant organ of the body and its resistance depends on its cellular activity, nutritional supply, age and other metabolic and physiologic parameters. Pulp communicates with periapical tissues via apical and lateral foramina.
