[I don't know if you received any personal e-mail regarding your
request. Since I didn't see anything come across the dino list, I
went ahead and did some investigating for you. Please excuse me
if this is redundant.]

Looking through various library indexes, I did not uncover
anything on archosaur teeth as recent as only a few years. But I
did locate references to some slightly older articles. The
Currie, Rigby and Sloan article (below) could very well be the
one you are thinking of....

There are references for archosaur tooth replacement patterns,

And don't forget _The_Dinosauria_ by D. B. Weishampel, P. Dodson
and H. Osmolska. Teeth of many dinosaurs are discussed under each

I hope this helps.
