Figure 46: Micrograph of sample EIN-11 showing the effect of generalised destruction on the dentinal microstructure. The striated structure of the dentine has 'faded' in the upper half of the image. In the lower half, the tubuli and their lateral branches, appear stained and possibly enlarged. It is not possible to determine whether or not this is due to acid etching alone, or bioerosion prior to the etching.
