The findings to date indicate that the explanation for the disproportionate numbers of caries-resistant recruits from Northwest Ohio and Northeast South Carolina may be the elevated dietary intake of at least boron, lithium, molybdenum and strontium, along with optimal fluoride water supplies. Investigations indicate the desirability of investigating further the effects of combinations of trace elements upon tooth morphology, its destructibility by acid and also effects upon bacterial metabolism. It would seem wise to pay particular attention to the role of strontium in these trace element effects.
