Intertubular dentin was eroded and tubules were connected with each other.
Application of 37 wt.% phosphoric acid demineralizes 5-8 mm of the intertubular dentin matrix surface, creating nanometer-sized porosities within the underlying collagen fibrillar matrix (Pashley et al.).
In the images obtained through AFM we can observe different micromorphology that shows the fluorotic dentin, having greater disruption of the surface when increasing severity of dental fluorosis; this may be because this substrate has greater amount of intertubular dentin and its hydroxyapatite crystals are modified morphologically; due to this pattern amorphous and low mineral content, demineralization patterns are modified [21].
Dentin surfaces irradiated by Er:YAG laser were irregular, scaly, or flaky and dentinal tubules were opened without smear layer, cracked or melted; whereas protrusion of peritubular dentin was revealed due to its less amount of water compared with intertubular dentin.(Fig2) Irregularities promoted by laser irradiation vary according to the energy density applied.
(13) EDTA acts upon the inorganic components of smear layer, causes the decalcification of peritubular and intertubular dentin and leaves the collagen exposed.
