Odontogenesis occurs because of a multi-stage complicated interaction between the oral epithelium and the mesenchymal tissue under the epithelium.
The mesenchymal bone marrow stem cells (BMSC) grown together with embryonal epithelial cells of the oral cavity transform into cells similar to odontoblasts, containing the marker protein of odontogenesis. After grafting bone marrow cells under the renal capsule of adult rats, the development of structures similar to teeth surrounded by soft and bone tissue was observed [46].
They are presumed to arise from the remnants of the dental lamina which persist in the oral tissues after the completion of odontogenesis, or from the basal cell layer of the oral mucosal epithelium.
