We conducted an investigation into the nature of dentine mineralization and mechanical property gradients with the aid of experimental techniques such as the fluoroscopic X-ray microanalysis and instrumented microindentation, respectively. It was found that the tooth adapts to a complex structure with significant gradients in properties. We observed a significant correlation between the degree of mineralization within the dentine and the mechanical properties. The natural gradation in… CONTINUE READING
