Title: Dental health in pre-Ottoman and Ottoman period in Croatia
Source: Acta stomatol Croat. 2016 ; 50(2):169
Meeting: 2nd International congress of the School of Dental Medicine, University of Zagreb and Academy of Operative Dentistry
Location and date: Zagreb, Hrvatska, 5-6.3.2016.
Keywords: paleodontology
Objective: The Ottoman Empire (Turkish Empire) was founded in 1299. Ottoman Empire occupied parts of territory of today’s Croatia. Numerous conflicts, mostly of relatively low-intensity caused changes in food production and in dietary patterns of inhabitants. The aim of the study is to analyze dental health of inhabitants of North Croatia (area between Sava, Drava, Mura and Danube rivers) in pre-Ottoman (11th – 13th century) and Ottoman (15th – 18th century) period. Materials and methods: Dental health markers: caries, ante-mortem tooth loss (AMTL) and abscesses were recorded in 737 skulls from pre-Ottoman (364 skulls) and Ottoman period (373 skulls). Results: In the pre-Ottoman sample the frequency of dental caries is slightly higher in males (17.4%) then in females (16.7%). In the Ottoman sample the frequency of dental caries is almost equal between males and females (14.1% and 13.9%). The frequency of AMTL was 14.7% in pre-Ottoman and 21.2% in Ottoman sample. In the pre-Ottoman sample abscesses frequencies was 5.8% and 5.4% in the Ottoman sample. Conclusion: Differences in dental health markers between pre-Ottoman and Ottoman samples confirmed previous hypothesis based on bioarchaeological findings that numerous, low-intensity conflicts affected the food production process and caused a change of dietary patterns of inhabitants.
