Fluoride (7 mg. per kilogram of body weight) produced hypomineralized enamel, marked radiolucent bands (calciotraumatic lines) separated by intervening zones of poorly mineralized enamel. Molybdenum modified the effect of fluoride on the intervening zones but permitted the production of some less clearly marked radiolucent bands. The bands in all fluorosed enamel in this study were less than 20 μ in width, and two methods of magnifying these for densitometry were developed. © 1970.
