1) early ameloblast; 2)reversal of polarity; 3) the cell secretes the initial enamel; 4a) Crystallites are formed at both surfaces of
the process; 4b) Towards the end of secretion, most of the high nuclei have moved to a low position; ruffled (5a) and a
smooth (5b) surface apposed to the enamel; 6) they serve to protect the enamel surface during eruption and later will
contribute to form the junctional epithelium
