Abstract

In this work, (XRF) technique was used to investigate the elements concentration in deciduous and permanent teeth compared with smoking. Many elements have been detected in the deciduous teeth samples, the important once are Ca, K, P, Mg, C and Na. The same elements were detected in permanent teeth with another two elements Fe and Pb. Thus, the concentrations of most toxic elements were significantly in the smoker group. The maximum concentrations of toxic elements such as Pb, Cd and Co were found in older age (above 60 year). The minimum concentrations of trace elements Ca, P and Na were detected in this age group. The relative statistics of calcium concentration in smoker and nonsmoker human teeth were studied according to age. It was concluded that the maximum calcium concentration for nonsmokers was found in age group (20-40 year) compared with other groups.
