Abstract

Abstract: Taking into consideration the problem, which the patients face, with erosions of the teeth, our study is focused toward examining the consumption of carbonated and fruit drinks during the day, as a potential risk factor, in the development of erosive tissue, depending on the age of the patients, and salivary values of calcium and phosphates, and their association with the onset of dental erosions. In the presented distribution of data which take into consideration the consumption of carbonated drinks in the listed groups, for Pearson Chi-square=12,75and p<0,05(=0,047, there is a significant difference. In the displayed distribution of information relating to the consumption of fruit juices in these groups the Pearson Chi-square = 16,19 and p <0,05 (p = 0,01) and there is no significant difference. The average value of calcium (x=0,02mmol/l), in the group of examinees from 50 and > years, for p<0,05(p=0,04), is significantly lower, than, the average value of calcium (x=0,05mmol/l), in the control group. For F=0,67 and p>0,05 (p=0,57) between the values of the phosphates in the saliva of the examinees from the examined groups, there is no significant difference. From the presented results, we can see that between the average group values, of phosphates in the saliva of the examinees, p>0,05 and there is no significant difference between the groups. We can conclude that future studies and discussions about the erosion of t teeth, and their role in the overall oral health, are necessary, but also, it seems that they are also stimulated because of their frequency.
