Do elephants suffer from Dentinal Hypersensitivity???

Thursday, October 3, 2013


Have you ever wondered why elephant tusks were so valuable?
It is because Elephant ivory is solid dentin. Dentinal tubules make them porous, less slippery, useful for piano keys, and elastic, useful for billard balls. When they are formed, they are covered by a thin cap of enamel that wears down soon after.

So, my question is... Do they suffer from Dentinal Hypersensitivity??? I'll post the answer as soon as I find out! :-)
