The mineralized tissue of intertubular dentin is a collagen-mineral composite with considerable local variations of mechanical properties. Area scans of human coronal dentin were made by complementary methods to investigate correlations between local mechanical properties and the density, size, and crystallinity of the mineral particles. Scanning images from the same specimen were collected with Fourier-transform infrared microspectroscopy in reflectance mode (FTIR-RM), small angle X-ray… CONTINUE READING
