Differences in the shapes of the Hunter-Schreger bands in different teeth and in different areas of a tooth have never been explained. They are almost certainly related directly to differences in the courses and organization of prisms. A computerized model was used to construct vertical sheets of enamel prisms whose courses could be varied in 3 dimensions. The output was viewed as a 3-dimensional picture of the prisms, or as a 2-dimensional picture of the Hunter-Schreger bands, or as a… CONTINUE READING
