Title: Overview of oral health of ancient Croatian Populations
Source: Acta stomatol Croat. 2016 ; 50(1):88.
Meeting: Congress with International Participation: “Minimally Invasive Approach in Dental Medicine”
Location and date: Zagreb, Hrvatska, 27.-28.11.2015.
Keywords: paleodontology
Teeth and mouth provide a lot of information about an individual. Paleo-odontological analysis of teeth and mouth help us reconstruct some important facts about life of ancient populations. Teeth and mouth of late antique (3rd – 6th century) and early medieval populations (7th – 10th century) living on the territory of today’s Croatia were analysed by different paleo-odontological methods. Caries prevalence in late antique population was 8.7% and 12.2% in early medieval population. Prevalence of ante-mortem tooth loss in late antique population was 3.9% and 9.4% in early medieval population. Tooth wear with exposed dentine was found in 98.6% of the late antique sample, and in 94.0% of early medieval sample. Calculus deposits were recorded in 50.3% of late antique sample and in 49.1% of early medieval sample. Presented findings suggest a decrease of oral health indicators as caries or ante-mortem tooth loss in the early medieval population. Changes in dietary pattern confirmed by archaeological findings are one of possible explanations.
