Description:High power view of first molar cusp very close to breaking the integrity of the oral mucosa during eruption.
At the top of the image the orthokeratinised oral mucosa is seen. Bordering the basal epithelial layer of the oral mucosa is a stratified squamous epithelium emanating from the enamel organ, which will eventually fuse with the mucosal epithelium. This process ensures the integrity of the mucosal barrier during eruption.
