During pre-eruptive development and during eruption, the odontoblasts produce primary dentin. Once the tooth has developed to its final length, the odontoblasts produce secondary dentin, causing the dentinal walls to thicken toward the pulp cavity. This will effectively decrease the width of the pulp cavity as the cat ages. Reparative or tertiary dentin is produced in response to thermal, mechanical, occlusal, or chemical trauma to the odontoblasts. The pulp chamber in cats lies closer to the enamel than in dogs.
