The narwhal (Monodon monoceros) cementum-dentin junction: a functionally graded biointerphase.

Abstract

In nature, an interface between dissimilar tissues is often bridged by a graded zone, and provides functional properties at a whole organ level. A perfect example is a "biological interphase" between stratified cementum and dentin of a narwhal tooth. This study highlights the graded structural, mechanical, and chemical natural characteristics of a… (More)
