A 50-year-old member asked:
Why enamel is seen in the ground section only while dentin is seen in ground and decalcified section?

Dissolve the organic: Dentin is 70-75% inorganic and 25-30% organic, whereas enamel is almost all calcium and 4% organic matters. Hence enamel gets completely destroyed during decalcification. Ground section is to study the inorganic part. Decalcification is to study the organic part.
