“Micro CT scans reveal dental replacement patterns of Mesozoic birds”

None of the modern birds (Neornithines) have teeth, but most of the Mesozoic birds have been found with true teeth that show wide diversity among stem birds. The occurrence of the avian dentition and their polyphyodonty tooth replacement have been known since the 19th century, yet this phenomenon still lacks rigorous study. Micro CT scans provide non-destructive means to study avian dental replacement with 3-D perspectives.
