    Upper panel: occlusal view on the lower incisors of a 6-year-old mare. Dental stars are visible on I1 and I2 (arrows), cups are present as large elliptical infoldings (arrowheads). Occlusal surfaces of the incisors are oval and curvature of the dental arch is semicircular. Lower panel: occlusal view on the lower incisors of a 12-year-old mare. In the center of the dental stars a white spot is clearly visible (arrows). Cups have become smaller and more shallow. Occlusal surfaces are more triangular.
