Abstract

Typically, human fetal growth rates change

Here, I use histological methods to determine

thick layer of prenatal enamel to form in

also calculate prenatal extension rates to assess

the trajectory of growth in thickness and height

mandibular lateral incisors and second molars

Results show that the growth trajectory

initiated early in the second trimester and 250?m

molars initiated closer to birth and required 60-

Although initial extension rates were positively

initial prenatal enamel growth is faster in incisors

is related to their early postnatal eruption.
