Abstract

The aim of our study was to establish the effects of carbonated drinks and fruits drinks on the onset and the level of dental erosions on the central incisors and the first permanent molars. In order to objectify the existence of dental erosion among the population, research was made in different urban environments in the city of Shtip and its surrounding. The total sample consisted of 31 respondents (17 male and 14 female) with positive signs of dental erosion. In the methodology we used specially constructed questionnaires in which we input the data about the consumption of carbonated and fruits drinks and from a clinical standpoint we input data about the depth of the dental erosions according to teeth and surfaces. The monitoring of the distribution of dental erosions that were diagnosed on the central incisors and the first permanent molars, in correlation to the gender of the examinees, did not show a significant difference (p>0.05). The results we got for the existence of dental erosions according to surfaces of the examined teeth, in correlation to the gender of the examinees, did not show a significant difference (p>0.05). The correlation between the use of carbonated drinks and dental erosions on the central incisors was with a medium strong negative insignificant correlation p>0.05. The data which represents the association of dental erosions, according to tooth surface, and the consumption of carbonated drinks during the whole week and of fruit drinks during the whole day,on the central incisors, showed, that there is no statistically significant difference p>0.05. In the examined correlation between the consumption of carbonated drinks and dental erosions of the first permanent molar, we can see that there is a medium strong negative significant correlation p<0.05,where the increase in the consumption of carbonated drinks is followed by a decline in the level of erosive changes. In the presented distribution of data which takes into consideration the use of fruits drinks and dental erosions diagnosed on the first permanent molar, there is no significant difference (p>0.05). The correlation between the use of fruit drinks and dental erosions of the first permanent molar was with a medium strong negative significant correlation p<0,05, where the increase of the use of fruit drinks is followed by a decrease in the level of erosive changes. We can conclude that it is necessary to carry out a study, that would include the most influential etiological factors, which would help in the preparation of preventive strategies.
