Lead levels in exfoliated caries and fluorosis affected teeth of different regions.
Samples of exfoliated human teeth from Delhi, Shillong and Bhilai, were analyzed for fluoride and lead content, following the standard procedures.
The fluoride and lead concentration of the overall environment of the study regions were also determined.
It was found that Bhilai region is mild-fluorosis prone due to high exposure to fluoride and Delhi and Shillong regions are caries prone due to low exposure to fluoride.
The lead content in the overall environment of Delhi was found to be higher, followed by Bhilai and Shillong.
The lead concentration in the teeth samples were found to be lower in Bhilai region and comparatively high in Delhi and Shillong, indicating that the environmental lead and fluoride are interrelated in some complex manner among the two forms of dental disorders.
