Development, Structure, and Function of Periodontal Tissues

  • Hubert E. Schroeder
Part of the Handbook of Microscopic Anatomy book series (MIKROSKOPISCHEN, volume 5 / 5)


In contrast to the many recent and contemporary textbooks on oral and dental tissues, the present chapter is designed to deal separately with each of the periodontal tissues in terms of their developmental, structural, biochemical, and functional aspects, i.e., with cementum, alveolar bone, periodontal ligament, and the gingiva.
