Current Perspectives on Tooth Implantation, Attachment, and Replacement in Amniota
- MedicineFront. Physiol.
The diversity of tooth attachment, implantation and replacement in extant and extinct amniotes is evaluated in order to derive hypothetical evolutionary trends in these different dental traits over time and synthetic definitions or redefinitions of most commonly used terms are proposed.
Vestigial Tooth Anatomy and Tusk Nomenclature for Monodon Monoceros
- Medicine, BiologyAnatomical record
The conclusions reached are that the narwhal tusks are the expression of canine teeth and that vestigial teeth have no apparent functional characteristics and are following a pattern consistent with evolutionary obsolescence.

Synthetic Hydroxyapatite as a Biomimetic Oral Care Agent.
- Medicine, Materials ScienceOral health & preventive dentistry
Synthetic hydroxyapatite is a promising biomimetic oral care ingredient that may extend the scope of preventive dentistry, due to its biocompatibility and similarity to biologically formed hydroxyAPatite in natural tooth enamel.
Xerostomia and Hyposalivation
- MedicineAdvances in dental research
Salivary gland hypofunction has been selected as the overarching term for subjective symptoms and objective signs of dry mouth and its different aspects-xerostomia, hyposalivation, and altered saliva composition-are reviewed with respect to prevalence, diagnosis, and etiology.

Measuring Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) Tooth Growth and Eruption by Fluorescence Markers and Bur Marks
- MedicineJournal of veterinary dentistry
It is concluded that the application of fluorochrome staining can be used to measure tooth growth in teeth that are not accessible for bur marks or in animals that are too small to assess tooth eruption or growth by bur marks.

The ins and outs of the evolutionary origin of teeth
- BiologyEvolution & development
It has been shown that teeth develop from dermal, endodermal or mixed epithelia and, therefore, developmental distinctions between teeth and dermal denticles are diminished, and the “inside‐out” hypothesis must be rejected.
Tooth length and incisal wear and growth in guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus) fed diets of different abrasiveness.
- MedicineJournal of animal physiology and animal nutrition
The findings suggest that other factors than diet abrasiveness, such as mineral imbalances and in particular hereditary malocclusion, are more likely causes for dental problems observed in this species.
