At 15 years of age , the slope of the incisors is increasing markedly. All 'marks' have disappeared and dark , round 'dental stars' occupy the centre of each wearing surface.

Galvayne's groove reaches half way down the length of the tooth and is increasing in length by one third of an inch each year.

 

 
   

 

 

 

 

 

 

At 19 or 20 years of age , the forward slope of the incisors is most pronounced and Galvayne's groove extends the whole length of the tooth

 
   

 

 

At 20 to 25 years old the forward slope is even more acute and with continued eruption the part of the upper corner incisor now becoming exposed , shows no Galvayne's groove.

The groove therefore decreases in length progressively as the tooth wears away to disappear by 30 years.
