The adjacent mesenchyme around the tooth germ has condensed to the dental papilla H. The beginning separation of the dental sac [2 and the dense population of cells in the dental papilla are already discernible. The multi-layered internal enamel epithelium [3 is located at the inner surface of the cap enameloid. The layer of cells, which borders on the surrounding mesen-chyme 0, forms the external enamel epithelium ffl at the outer surface of the cu cap enameloid (cf. Fig.390). Fetus (crown-rump length = 3.2 cm).
