Quantitative electron spectroscopic diffraction analyses of the crystal formation in dentine.

Abstract

Newly formed apatitic crystallites of different hard tissues consist, according to our investigations, of chains composed of nanometre-sized particles (islands, dots) arising at nucleating sites of the collagenous and noncollagenous matrix macromolecules. In dentine these islands coalesce rapidly in longitudinal direction to form needle-like crystallites… (More)
