621. At the time Enamel matrix is first formed in a tooth:

B. Decrease in water and organic content.
C. Increase in water and decrease in organic content.
D. Decrease in water and increase in organic content.
624. The stimulus that initiates the actual formation of Enamel matrix seems to be the:

D. Non of the above.
629. Enamel tufts:
A. Begin on the outer edge of E .
B. Are developmental defects and are worn away by masticatory forces.
