Figure 10: Micrograph of sample EIN-23. The cementum is completely bioeroded, mainly in the form of globular MFD. Despite the cemento-dentinal junction (black asterisk), the bacteria are penetrating into the dentine. The micro-organisms seem to enter the tooth at the cementum surface (white asterisk). Tunnelling into the dentine is in the form of enlarged dentinal tubuli (arrow) with branches. See also detail in Figure 16.
