Figure 1: Light microscopic findings. (a) Normal nonfluorotic tooth showing the regular arrangement of enamel rods and dentinal tubules with no disturbance in the incremental lines of retzius, ×10. (b) Mildly fluorosed tooth showing disturbance in mineralization pattern, ×4. (c) Moderately fluorosed tooth showing increased interglobular dentin extending to the circumpulpal dentin, ×4. (d) Severely fluorotic tooth showing crescent shaped areas of subsurface hypomineralization along the striae of retzius, ×4
