Abstract: This work presents a study of elemental composition

and preponderant structure of human dental calculus,

as they mature in the mouth for a period of 1 year. The

synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence technique using a

white beam was employed as an analytical method. The set

of samples were extracted from different dental elements of

the same subject, who did not require any other clinical care.

By means of analyzing the Ca/P molar ratio an estimation of

the main crystallographic structure was attained, by simple

comparison with stoichiometric values of the several crystalline

structures that compose the calculus. The results

showed a slowly progressive transformation of the initial

crystalline structures (brushite) into more stable structures

(hydroxyapatite), passing through octacalcium phosphate

and whitlockite. The concentrations of mayor components

(Ca and P) as a function of time followed a sigmoid curve.

The analysis of trace element concentratios versus time indicated

a null or small correlation of concentration values

with the kinetics of the crystallization process. © 2005 Wiley
