Cell cultures can provide useful in vitro models. Since odontoblasts are postmitotic cells, they cannot be expanded in cell cultures. Due to their extension into the dentin, injuries are inevitable during isolation. Therefore, "odontoblast-like" cell culture models have been established. Nowadays, there is no accepted definition of odontoblast-like...
