Findings on the alterations taking place in the enamel have demonstrated that they are generally caused by a daily use of highly fluoridated drinking waters. According to that, the Authors have carried out an ultrastructural study on lower incisors of albino rats after administering for 60 days water with a fluorine concentration five times the normal one. The samples, studied under the S.E.M., showed a general slowing of both the deposition and the maturation phase as well as the presence of… CONTINUE READING
