Caption: Dentin region of a human tooth with canals or dentinal tublules (dental caniculi). The dentin tubules have been formed by cytoplasmic extensions of the odontoblasts (dentin-producing cells). Dentin is mineralized connective tissue below the tooth enamel surface. It forms the majority of the tooth.
