Dental fluorosis is an enamel defect caused by extreme fluoride intake during the period of enamel development, leading to incomplete crystal growth and increased absorbency. Dental fluorosis is the first visible sign indicating that much fluoride has poisoned the whole body. Beside the health dangers there are other opposing effects of dental fluorosis such as high costs of other medical and dental difficulties and the effect on the victims and their loss of time.
Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
