Pulp from extracted incisor

Incisors that are still growing have a tapering pulp cavity containing the germinal tissue, nerve and blood supply to the tooth. The contents of the pulp cavity have a glossy jelly-like appearance (show below). It is important to look for this tissue when extracting incisors. If some is left in the tooth socket, there is a risk of tooth regrowth.
