Figure 11: Micrograph of sample EIN-05 showing globular-shaped tunnels within the dentine. These are of the same size and shape as the linear longitudinal tunnels (approximately 10 µm) and budded tunnels (up to 100s of µm) seen in bone. In the middle of the image a pristine area of dentine can be seen, with the dentinal tubuli clearly visible.
