A recent research found that tooth enamel abnormality in children, molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH), may result from exposure to the industrial chemical bisphenol A (BPA). The authors of a new study reached this conclusion after finding similar damage to the dental enamel of rats that received BPA.
These result may shed light on the increasing prevalence of molar and incisor hypomineralization in the developed world. Hopefully with the increase in awareness to the presence of BPA and it’s effects this trend will stop.
