Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In a sample from northern Italy of the second half of the 19th century hypoplasias in maxillary and mandibular anterior teeth was examined. The maxillary canine is the most frequently affected tooth. Frequencies of hypoplasias show slightly lower figures than other 19th century skeletal populations. The age interval most affected was between 2 and 4 years and suggests an association with stress at weaning and immediately thereafter.
