The paramagnetic radicals induced by radiation in dental enamel are very important because they can be related to the crystalline structure of hydroxyapatite. The R-value, that is, the ratio of the amplitude of the lines of the EPR signal due to radiation, is a measure of the degree of microcrystal alignment in human tooth enamel. The aim of this study is to underline the importance of a correct evaluation of the R-value, by using the current method to increase reproducibility in EPR spectroscopy of tooth enamel. Data with and without correction show a significant difference and, consequently, they give rise to a different valuation of microcrystal alignment.
