Abstract

The purpose of the experiments described below was to determine if calcification of the molar teeth was altered in rats exposed to high levels of cadmium during the period of tooth development. Microdistribution of calcium and phosphorus in enamel, microhardness of enamel, molar lengths and weights, and in vitro solubilization of enamel was measured in the molar teeth of rats receiving injections of cadmium. Compared to controls, no changes were found. We concluded that caries promotion by cadmium was not caused by a direct effect of the cadmium on the calcification of enamel.
