Alan Brook and Matthew Brook O'Donnell
Abstract: The major components and phases of development needed to form a mature dentition are identified and outlined. This information is then examined against the general characteristics of Complex Adaptive Systems. It is concluded that the dentition in development and maturity has the characteristics of a Self Adaptive and Self Organising Complex System. This exploration provides the basis for future investigations of this model.
