Abstract Comparisons of the architecture and relationships of the hard and soft tissues and the morphological features and staining characteristics of their cells were made between rat mandibles fixed in acrolein and others fixed in formaldehyde. The mandibles were infiltrated and embedded in either paraffin or polyester wax. In all of these respects, the tissues fixed in acrolein and embedded in polyester wax were superior. Their outstanding features included absence of shrinkage artifacts, sensitive staining responses of all cells and tissues and striking differences in the morphology of cells in the dental pulp.
