Background: Dental follicles are involved the development of tooth and periodontal structures. Dental follicles are known for pleuripotency and inductive changes but are also known for origin for various pathologies. Materials and Methods: Fifty eight asymptomatic dental follicle tissues were examined histologically and radiographically wherein orthopantomogram radiographic width was correlated with various histological parameters of dental follicle and evaluated for the presence of various pathologies using modified Gallego's stain. Observation and Results: There was evidence of pathological changes associated with asymptomatic dental follicle. We also found variations in epithelial lining, stromal calcifications, and variable compositions. Conclusion: We encourage researchers to examine this peculiar tissue as a unique model and explore its potential to avoid future complications.
