Bulimia is an illness characterized by the cycle of binging on food, guilty feelings and resultant purging (vomiting or laxative abuse) to counteract the previous binge. It is much more common in yo...
Mouth breathing during sleep is linked to a more acidic oral environment that may promote tooth enamel erosion and caries, new University of Otago research suggests.
Fossil and genetic evidence indicates tooth enamel originated in the scales of ancient fish.
(New York University) The team found that the main calcium influx pathway involved in the mineralization of enamel [called the CRAC (Ca2+ release-activated Ca2+) channel -- the main type of SOCE (Stor...

A Coaxial Dielectric Probe Technique for Distinguishing Tooth Enamel from Dental ResinPages 8-17Author Paul MeaneyBenjamin WilliamsShireen GeimerAnn FloodHarold SwartAbstract For purposes of biodosim...
Compared with breathing through the nose, breathing through the mouth while asleep increases saliva acidity and may contribute to tooth erosion and decay, say researchers.
Fluorapatite, a phosphate mineral that helps prevent decay in tooth enamel, grows on a protein-coated substrate in this artificially colored micrograph.
(Uppsala University) When did the enamel that covers our teeth evolve? And where in the body did this tissue first appear? In the latest issue of the journal Nature, researchers from Uppsala Universit...
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of erosion on direct tooth-coloured restorations and adjacent enamel/dentine under low and normal simulated salivary flow rates.
The distribution of dental tissues in mammalian herbivores can be very different from taxon to taxon. While grazers tend to have more elaborated and complexly folded enamel ridges, browsers have less ...
Mouthrinsing with antacids, following erosive episodes, have been suggested as a preventative strategy to minimize tooth surface loss due to their neutralizing effect. The purpose of this in situ stud...
This study aimed to examine the surface characteristics of erosive enamel in extracted human teeth by scanning electron microscopy. Morphologic changes in naturally eroded enamel depend on the stages ...
Tooth enamel microstructure is a reliable and widely used indicator of dietary interpretations and data for phylogenetic reconstruction, if all levels of variability are investigated. It is usually di...
