Two groups of Holtzman albino rats were given fluoridated water (5.0 ppm) and nonfluoridated water (0.0 ppm), respectively, and the microgram of fluoride and calcium in the stapes at 21, 52, and 150 days of age in each group were then analyzed. Significant differences were found within and between the groups.
