Sample text

There is a structureless outer layer of enamel about 30 μm thick found most commonly toward the cervical area and less often on cusp tips. There are no prism outlines visible, and all the apatite crystals are parallel to one another and perpendicular to the striae of Retzius. This layer seems to be more heavily mineralized. Microscopically, the enamel surface initially has circular depressions indicating where the enamel rods end. These concavities vary in depth and shape, and they may contribute to the adherence of plaque material, with a resultant caries attack, especially in young individuals.

The crystallites are tightly packed in a distinct pattern of orientation that gives strength and structural identity to the enamel prisms. The long axis of the apatite crystallites within the central region of the head (body) is aligned almost parallel to the rod long axis, and the crystallites incline with increasing angles (65 degrees) to the prism axis in the tail region. The susceptibility of these crystallites to acid, from either FIGURE 2-6 Electron micrograph (approximately ؋350,000) of mature, hexagon-shaped enamel crystallites (arrows).
