The article focuses on comments to the article "Microscopic Study of Cancellous Bone at the Root Ends of Dead Teeth," by Dr. Novitzky. The author comments that only one instance was bone surrounding the apex of a pulpless tooth examined with a microscope, and that the other situations used roentgenic evidence. He states that Novitzky's conclusion suggests that all pulpless teeth are sources of infection, which was not proven. He agrees with Novitzky concerning cementum deposition in dead teeth.
