The article offers information on a 30,000-year-old enamel that was first described by A. Retzius in Germany in 1837. The enamel is said to have strange patterns and contours and some peculiarities. Overview of experiments done on the enamel is provided. The authors also express their curiosity on how the enamel could endure and last after 30,000 years.

    The incorporation of fluoride by human enamel from topical fluoride solutions involves the process of diffusion and is partially governed by Fick's laws of diffusion. Further, the law of mass action applies, and the fluoride within the enamel is partitioned into substitutional and interstitial...

    The article presents a histochemical study of ameloblasts and the dental enamel matrix in rat molars. The authors attempted to understand the mechanism of deposition of calcium in the enamel matrix in relation to physiologic and pathologic conditions. Experimental methods used in the study are...

    The frictional behavior and surface failure of human enamel under sliding in water was examined. A large plowing component of friction was observed. For normal loads of up to 1kg, ductile behavior of the wear scar was apparent. Intermittent cracks were observed that appeared to propagate around...

    In view of the meager amount of information available concerning commercially available dentifrices, a study was conducted to evaluate 43 dentifrices with regard to abrasion to enamel and dentin and enamel polishing ability. The results indicated a wide range of abrasiveness and polishing ability.
