|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.
