Figure 49: Micrograph of sample EIN-04. In this tooth the crown enamel has been worn down to the dentine during life and the exposed dentine is affected by orange staining and generalised destruction (white asterisk). This is at least partially pathological, seen by the tertiary, or reparative, dentine (black asterisk). This will form as reaction to stimuli such as caries or attrition and will be produced only by the cells affected by the stimulus (Nanci 2003).
