Enamel ridges on normal shaped incisors

This image shows the incisors that have a normal shape, length and occlusion but have deep horizontal ridges in the enamel. These can be felt when a thumbnail is run up and down the teeth. These ridges are indicative of enamel hypoplasia that cannot be caused by inadequate, or lack of, dental wear. Calcium and/or vitamin D deficiency are msot likely to be responsible.
