ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of understanding the metabolic pathways which are used by the human body to extract nutrients from food and transform them into the structural components of teeth and jaws. It is noted that the necessity of basic minerals such as calcium and phosphorus in the diet is understood, but much scientific research on the topic remains to be done.
