Dental Calculus

[2-2-2012]
#Calculus is mineral deposits attached to the enamel. It consists of 79-80% inorganic and the rest is an organic elements (123).
#The higher prevalence of calculus (and also caries) is generally found in agricultural societies to whom ate more carbohydrates (123, 162). Therefore, in the context of paleodiet study the observation of caries and calculus should be done together because their occurrence are caused by the same bacteria (123)
