A study of the oral health of workers in flour mills was carried out. The examined group consisted of 40 males and 8 females currently employed at flour mills. As much as 93.75% of the workers showed evidence of dental abrasion, particularly of the front teeth. The authors concluded that the dental abrasions in the group are closely related to the work environment.
