B. Enamel forms faster than dentin
C. Dentin forms faster than enamel
D. Processes of their cells remain in content with each other

# Matrix vesicles :
A. Are found in mantle dentin
B. Contain collagen
C. Produce alkaline phosphatase
D. Inhibit mineralization

# Transmission of stimulus across dentin is:
A. Direct activation of nerve endings
B. Correlated with the innervation density of the dentin
C. Stimulus induced fluid flow
D. There is no transmission of stimulus across dentin

# During hydrodynamic theory movement of fluids in dentinal tubules cause:
A. Movement of odontoblasts
B. Touch the nerves of the pulp to cause pain

A. Dentin
B. Enamel
C. Pulp
D. Periodontal ligament

# False statement regarding interglobular dentin is :
A. The term interglobular dentin refers to organic matrix that remains unmineralized because the mineralising globules fail to coalesce
