Sažetak

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate and compare the manganese concentrations in teeth samples of individuals from different geographical locations. Material and Methods: Eighty-six teeth samples were collected from adult (18-65 years) individuals living in two towns in Kosova (Klina and Mitrovica), and in Austria (Graz). Total of 40 and 46 teeth samples were taken from male and female individuals, respectively. Manganese concentrations in teeth samples were measured by using inductively plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). Results: The mean manganese concentration in permanent teeth from Klina residents is 2.03 ± 1.44 mg/kg, from Mitrovica residents 1.42 ± 0.71 mg/kg, and from Graz residents 1.01 ± 0.85. Manganese concentrations in teeth of individuals from Klina and Mitrovica are significantly higher than in Graz (p < 0.05). There was no significant difference between manganese levels according to sex in overall tested groups (p > 0.05). Conclusions: Manganese concentrations were higher in teeth samples from Kosova than in samples from Austria.
