Abstract

This investigation was undertaken to compare the mesio-distal crown dimensions of the permanent teeth in subjects with and without fluorosis. For this study, 25 pairs of study models cast immediately from alginate impressions of children from each of the two groups were evaluated. Their mean ages were 13.9 +/- 1.6 and 13.9 +/- 1.4 years, respectively. A dental vernier calliper was used to record the maximum mesio-distal dimensions.
