In most animal species, acute fluorosis is triggered by the accidental consumption of substances with a high content of fluorine, widely used in pest control. Fluorine normally concentrates in bones and teeth, and forms nearly 0.05% of these structures in mature animals, positively contributing to increase resistance of enamel to caries and favoring mineralization after eruption, a process which increases with age. The present article submits a form of study of fluorosis, stressing due warning… CONTINUE READING
