Academic Journal
The article focuses on research into the thickness of dental enamel in human lower incisor teeth. It states that lower incisors were cut to measure the thickness of dental enamel on the buccal, lingual, distal, and proximal surfaces. It comments on the difficulty in obtaining the true radial enamel thickness due to the curvature of the tooth surface.

    Talon cusp is an uncommon anomaly in the primary dentition. The present report describes a case of bilateral talon cusps on the maxillary primary central incisors of an 18-month-old male child. Both central incisors exhibited a sharp prominent accessory cusp on the palatal surface which extended...

    Aim: To determine the effect of three remineralising agents on human primary anterior teeth, i.e. CPP-ACP, CPP-ACPF, fluoridated toothpaste and artificial saliva as control. Study design: Forty primary maxillary anterior teeth were divided into four groups: Group I: CPP-ACP, Group II: CPP-ACPF...

    The selective adsorption of enamel proteins onto crystalline calcium apatites having different specific surface areas and various degrees of fluoride substitution was investigated. The proteins were obtained from the outer (close to the ameloblast) layer of secretary enamel of porcine permanent...

    To date, the precise etiology of molar-incisor hypomineralization (MIH) is uncertain. Vitamin D plays a key role in hard tissue formation. Therefore, this study aimed to analyze the relationship between serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D (25(OH)D) status and dental health data obtained from 1,048...

    Neandertals are reportedly characterized by unusually thin molar enamel in comparison to other fossil and recent humans. This, together with other evidence for an accelerated rate of tooth crown formation and a concomitantly shorter period of somatic maturation, has been used to argue that the...
