Description Stain: Hematoxylin and eosin. Centrally within the connective tissue of the periodontal ligament a distinct darker stained epithelial islet with nuclei is present (epithelial rest of Malassez as a remnant of Hertwig's epithelial root sheath; in adults it might produce dental cyst). At the right side cementoblasts close to lighter stained cementoid and darker stained cementum.
