Dear colleagues:

What is the best translation for this phrase in Arabic?

Your explanation is appreciated!

Thank you.

Developmental defects appear as pits, lines, or discoloration in the teeth. Very high fever or certain medications can disturb tooth formation and defects may result. Many teeth with defects are prone to dental caries, are difficult to keep clean, and may compromise appearance.
