Abstract

The decalcification procedure is a process of completely removing the calcium salt from the bone and teeth which are mineralized tissues, and also some other calcified tissues. Through this procedure mineralized component is removed, and the physical hardness also gets soft. Mineral components from the dentin and cementum should be removed. By using a microscope, we can observe pulp, immature enamel, dentin, and cementum histologically. This review tries to encompass the various procedures which help in diagnosing pathological hard tissue lesions.
