Paper Abstract

Laboratory experiments conducted in Saratov State University in the first half of 2012 revealed crystal formations on the surface of etched dentine after it had been exposed to 95% ethanol in solution for 30 days at room temperature. It was discovered that the structures observed were calcium-phosphate crystals. The nature of crystal formation on rough dentine surface was described based on substance diffusion in solution, which resulted in dentine becoming spatially inhomogeneous over time. The crystal formation was established to be determined by the limited ion redistribution in dentine material.
