A naturally graded interface due to functional demands can deviate toward a discontinuous interface, eventually decreasing the functional efficiency of a dynamic joint. It is this characteristic feature in a human bone-tooth fibrous joint bone-PDL-tooth complex that will be discussed through histochemistry, and site-specific high resolution microscopy, micro tomography(Micro XCT™), X-ray fluorescence imaging and wet nanoindentation techniques. Results demonstrated two causes for the occurrence… CONTINUE READING
