Figure 69: Micrograph of sample EIN-10 showing cuffed circular shapes located along the length of two dentinal tubuli. Some of the circles appear directly on the tubuli, others at the end of what looks like enlarged lateral branches. In addition a possible microbial tunnel, similar to what has been observed in many of the teeth, is emerging from one of the tubuli (arrow). The globular shape at the end of the tubuli where it meets the layer of Tomes and the cemento-dentinal junction, may also be an MFD (asterisk).
