  • The paper focuses on multiscale modeling of the elastic properties of dentin. It is modeled as a hierarchical structure consisting of collagen fibers and hydroxyapatite particles at the lower level. Different concentrations of hydroxyapatite in this tissue correspond to peritubular and intertubular dentins. Then, the overall material is modeled as intertubular dentin matrix containing parallel cylindrical holes (the tubules) surrounded by layers of peritubular dentin. At each microstructural level, the model accounts for anisotropy of the constituents. The model predictions are compared with experimental data available in literature
