The enamel in hypocalcification
appears normal but poorly mineralized while hypomaturation results in an abnormal mineralization in the final stages of tooth formation.
The teeth are affected by enamel dysplasia that has been reported to involve hypoplasia, hypocalcification
and, less commonly, hypomaturation.
5) For example, nutrient imbalances during early childhood can interfere with enamel formation, causing hypoplasia or hypocalcification
