Amelogenesis imperfecta or familial enamel hypoplasia (FEH) is an inherited condition of tooth enamel malformation. It is caused by a mutation in the ENAM or ACP4 gene which disrupts the production of Enamelin, an important component of tooth enamel. Affected animals have slim, pointed teeth with thin brown tooth enamel. Despite this condition the teeth do not seem to be more susceptible for dental cavities.
