Abstract

Uptake of cadmium into molar enamel and dentin from rats receiving cadmium in their drinking water was markedly elevated and proportional to the amount of cadmium in the drinking water. Postdevelopmental cadmium did not influence caries or alter the cariostatic effectiveness of fluoridated drinking water. The data indicate that the absolute concentration of cadmium in teeth is not predictive of cadmium-induced caries and that the critical period for caries promotion by cadmium may be during the developmental rather than the post-developmental period of tooth formation.
