Formation Times in Thermally Altered Enamel

Mahoney, Patrick; Miszkiewicz, Justyna


Enamel formation times reconstructed from incremental markings can provide an accurate age at death for human juveniles if teeth are still forming at the point of death. No study has evaluated whether incremental markings are visible, and if formation times can be reconstructed, in thermally altered enamel. Fourteen human permanent molars were experimentally heated to various temperatures for durations of either 20 min or 1 h. It was found that incremental markings were visible and formation...[Show more]
