چکیده

The main goal of the present work is to explore the three dimensional (3-D) atomic force microscopy (AFM) images of human teeth and investigating their micromorphology. For this purpose, 10 fresh and permanent canine teeth were selected from a group of 40-year-old men who were candidate for the experimental processes. Afterward, they were all applied for studying the morphology of their hard tissues. The tapping mode of AFM was used to characterize the surface micromorphology on the square areas of 1 μm × 1 μm (512 × 512 pts). AFM results and surface stereometric analysis indicate the relationships between the micromorphology of the surface and the structural properties of these tissues across the length scales. As can be seen, the surface of cementum has the most irregular topography (D = 2.87 ± 0.01) while the most regular topography (D = 2.43 ± 0.01) is found in dentin. Furthermore, the more and less regularity of the surface have been found in inner enamel (Sq = 26.26 nm) and dentin (Sq = 41.28 nm), respectively. Stereometric and fractal analyses give valuable information about human canine teeth via 3-D micromorphology.
