I do not know the level of preservation in the case (Currie, et al) behind the above link, but perhaps some experimentation with artificial dino teeth on a ptero-bone analogue from a suitable extant animal (bitten green bone vs bitten dry bone) would be useful and doable.

Or perhaps alligator and/or shark teeth would work better than artificial teeth...

Does anybody have suggestions as to what animal would provide the best ptero-bone analog?
