This review presents an analysis of the current data on the structural and functional organization and biological significance of epithelial cell rests of Malassez. Definition: The epithelial cell rests of Malasse are discrete clusters of residual cells from Hertwig’s epithelial root sheath (HERS) that didn’t. The authors performed a PubMed search on the term “epithelial rests” alone or in combination with “Malassez.” Relevant articles were categorized into primary.

Mechanisms of tooth eruption and orthodontic tooth movement. According to fo authors, the ERM were not isolated structures, forming a structure similar to a fishing net around tooth roots Fig 1giving ERM a role in maintaining the periodontal space and preventing alveolodental ankylosis.

Boxmedunsa, Pretoria Tel: Dent Rev Wien ; 1: ERM keep the bone away from the root surface through the release of mediators such as EGF, which induces osteoclasia. The modulation of enamel protein expression by epithelial remnants in the ERM thus suggests inherent regenerative ability, through directed and controlled strategies.

ERM cells have a functional activity in modulation of orthodontic movement, trough their potential for differentiation, maintenance functions and the capacity of repairing periodontium. Damage to periodontal tissue is resys associated with orthodontic movement, where hyalinizing outbreaks have been recorded rest the pressure side in the periodontal ligament, mainly epitthelial the first hours after the application of force.

Responses of BrdU label-retaining dental pulp cells to allogenic tooth transplantation into mouse maxilla. The prevalence, morphology, and distribution of epithelial rests in the human periodontal ligament.

His depth of knowledge on biophysics and laser treatments was simply outstanding. Malassez 7 was the first to detail the histological characteristics of epithelial rests and their distribution in the periodontal ligament. ERM plays a role in cementum repair epitbelial regeneration.

The epithelial cell rests of Malassez: Oste-opontin is required for unloading-induced osteoclast recruitment and modulation eithelial RANKL expression during tooth drift associated bone remodelling but not for super-eruption. In dentistry, the epithelial cell rests of Malassez ERM or epithelial rests of Malassez pax epithelialis pediodontii are part of the periodontal ligament cells around a tooth.


Support Center Support Center. Initially, its latent or quiescent role was associated only to the formation of cysts and periapical granulomas. C V Mosby; Trends in Endocrinol and Met 20 Periodontal tissue regeneration is a complex process that involves the collaboration of two hard tissues cementum and alveolar bone and two soft tissues gingiva and periodontal ligament.

Wesselink PR, Beertsen W. The connective tissue that separates ERM from adjacent bone cells is believed to provide the essential dilution site for EGF, preventing this polypeptide from reaching the EGF receptors on bone cells in high concentrations thereby avoiding excessive bone resorption. epithdlial

Dental Press J Orthod. Find articles by Rafael Rodrigues Lima.

In addition, paracrine signalling through the secretion of mediators of bone resorption would not take place, impacting on the process of bone remodelling around the tooth and leading to the tooth assuming the traits of ankylosis. ERM cells have a functional activity in modulation of orthodontic movement, trough their potential for differentiation, maintenance functions and the capacity of repairing periodontium.

Epithelial cell rests of Malassez – Wikipedia

The results showed that the ERM were present in all 31 specimens analyzed regardless of agebut the incidence decreased with increasing age. Data acquisition, analysis or interpretation: Cementoblasts are involved in the process of remodelling and repair of the root surface. Focal hyalinization during experimental tooth movement in beagle dogs. Epithelial-mesenchy-mal transition-derived cells exhibit multi-lineage differentiation potential similar to mesenchymal stem cells.

In recent years, research has been directed towards elucidating the physiological role played by the epithelial cell rests of Malassez within the periodontal ligament and surrounding alveolar bone.

Mitotic activity in epithelial rests of Malassez. Reeve and Wentz 16 determined the frequency of epithelial rests in patients aged years, classifying different ERM types and locations on the periodontal ligament. Fiedor Acta poloniae pharmaceutica Epithelial cell rests of Malassez bind epidermal growth factor intensely.

Epidermal growth factor released by the ERM is directly implicated in osteoclastogenesis and hence bone resorp-tion through the inhibition of osteoprotegerin OPGa well-established decoy receptor for RANKL. Report based on literature review. The bone morphogenetic proteins, especially BMP-2, as well as bone matrix proteins, act in regulating osteogenesis, with an initial rise in the dental follicle.

The characteristics of epithelial cell rests of Malassez during tooth eruption of development mice.

Keinan D, Cohen RE. Orthodontic movement, however, does not promote ERM necrosis, but, rather, just the reverse.

The synthesis of collagen as well as changes in the malwssez of the periodontal ligament contribute to the bone remodelling process, which induces orthodontic forces 57 Epithelial cell rests of Malassez contain unique stem cell populations capable of undergoing epithelial-mesenchymal transition.

This process is triggered by EGF and prostaglandins released from bone resorption of the alveolar surface and preserves the human periodontal space, which varies in thickness from 0. The capacity to repair periodontium and to prevent cementum damages were connected with this epitjelial. Collagen plays a key role in supporting the tensile forces; periodontal ligament epithelail and its renewal are extremely important in maintaining the ligament space and protecting the tissue from mechanical forces.

The prostaglandins, specifically prostaglandin E2, have a role in activating osteoclasts and can stimulate bone remodelling. Initially described by Serres, 5 these remaining cells of the periodontal ligament are portrayed as enamel organ debris.

The prevalence, distribution, and morphologic changes of the epithelial remnants in the molar region of the rat. From the release of substances and differentiation of its epithelial cells, the remaining ERM play an important role in the formation and repair of cementum, particularly in the differentiation of cementoblasts with mesenchymal origin, preferably through the direct transformation of epithelial cells to cementoblasts.
