Scanning Electron Microscopy of the Rat Femur After Fluoride Ingestion
Anorganic preparations of femurs from rats given 150 ppm fluoride in the drinking water for 10 wk revealed an increase in periosteal matrix and woven bone formation with a concomitant decrease in endosteal resorptive activity. Resorption of metaphyseal trabeculae was increased coupled with an inhibition of calcification in the epiphyseal plate.
