BABY TOOTH REVELATION Scientists and archeologists have long used dental analysis to glean information about ancient civilizations' diets, lifestyles, and causes of death. Now, the study of teeth has shifted from the past into the future, as researchers try to determine what teeth may tell us about potential health risks. It has been discovered that children with primary teeth ("baby teeth") that have thin enamel are at a higher risk of developing a mental health disorder. When researchers used high-resolution imaging to examine the exfoliated baby teeth of 37 six-year-old children and matched tooth-enamel thickness with behavior, they found that the differences in dimension and teeth quality were better predictors of mental health than the factors that a psychiatrist would normally consider.
