  • High-resolution synchrotron radiation computed tomography (SRCT) and small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) were performed on normal and dentinogenesis imperfecta type II (DI-1I) teeth. The SRCT showed that the mineral concentration was 33% lower on average in the DI-II dentin with respect to normal dentin. The SAXS spectra from normal dentin exhibited low-angle diffraction peaks at harmonics of 67.6 nm, consistent with nucleation and growth of the apatite phase within gaps in the collagen fibrils… CONTINUE READING
