Molars, bicuspids and canines, oh my

A while back, we asked for your teeth. No, not the ones still in your jaw, but the ones that came out for one reason or another.

We got quite a few, but now we need more!

SAB member, Carolyn Macica, PhD., and her study team have processed the teeth that were sent to her before by generous XLHers. They've already made some interesting findings about the mineral content in XLH teeth, which may be useful for understanding the mineral content of XLH bones.

Now she's looking to expand on those initial studies and would be grateful for any additional teeth that could be sent her way. They can be baby teeth if you have a child with XLH, or adult teeth if you're having them removed for some reason.

The address to mail them is:
Dr. Carolyn M. Macica
Frank H. Netter School of Medicine
Quinnipiac University
275 Mount Carmel Avenue, NH-MED 311H
Hamden CT 06518
