Abstract :

 The study of dental, skeletal and non skeletal fluorosis in the children (6–14 years) was conducted in the two blocks (a) Palera, Heerawala, Nayabas, Saipur and Birasana of Jamwaramgarh block, (b) Chitanukalan,Jugalpura,Sunder ka bas ,Peelwa and Sirsali of Amber of Jaipur district of Rajasthan, India. The role of fluoride level of drinking water in the etiology of dental fluorosis and the cases of dental fluorosis in both dentitions and teeth were also assessed using DEANS classification. The fluoride content in the drinking water, blood and urine was estimated by ion specific electrode (Thermo Scientific Orion Star A329). The fluoride concentration in drinking water ranges from 0.7 to 15 ppm. Analysis of the samples showed the fluoride content in abnormal range both in the serum and urine of the children of the study villages. Increased fluoride concentration in drinking water is also responsible for the increased the disease pattern.
