Bone and Dental Histology


Journal of oral hygiene and Health is overwhelmed by the response and eagerness of the academic and research contributors to publish within the journal and take part in the year-long celebrations.

Cementum covers the outside of the root, and is very similar to bone but without any blood or nerve innervations and without the Haversian systems seen in bone (Junqueira and Carneiro, 2003). The layer of cementum functions to attach the root of the tooth to the periodontal ligament which helps to provide critical stabilization of the tooth in the bone of either the mandible or maxilla. The cementum primarily covers the root, with some portion overlapping the crown. The cementum is made by specialized mesenchymal cells located on the outside of the tooth root. Once these cells come into contact with the dentin that has just been made, some differentiate and turn into cementoblasts (Sadler, 2006). Once these cells become trapped within the matrix of the cementum, they live on as cementocytes. Like osteocytes in bone, cementocytes are reactive cells and can secrete cementum to help keep the tooth stable within the socket.

The Journal is successfully running in the 8th Volume issue 4 which covers a wide variety of Researchers of Oral Hygiene and Dental Health discipline are encouraged to publish innovative ideas in the international platform and peer reviewed journal of oral care and hygiene with good Impact factor. Oral hygiene, oral cancer, and oral surgery are some of the most evolving sectors of dental sciences, which still need more findings and communication. Hoping to contribute your work in our journal of Oral hygiene and health. We accept Original articles, Rewiew articles, Case Reports, Mini Review, short commentaries etc.,
