ABSTRACT
The article focuses on research on infections of cancellous bone at the root ends of dead teeth. It states that fibrous marrow was detected on the cancellous bone with a microscope, and was diagnosed as affected by osteomyelitis or myelitis. It suggests this is proof that tooth dentin dies when the pulp of the tooth dies. It comments that cementum deposition on a dead tooth does not imply that the tooth is still viable.
