Dental Fluorosis = Thyroid Dysfunction

Post by admin »

"Enamel defects can be observed in the patients with thyroid dysfunction. These enamel defects can range from small white spots to diffuse or demarcated opacity. Presence of enamel defects is attributed to change in thyroid hormone levels when the teeth are in mineralization phase... Enamel defects were observed both in primary and permanent dentitions." (Venkatesh & Patel, 2016)
