The prevalence of oral symptoms in workers exposed to stone wool aerosols


, : The prevalence of oral symptoms in workers exposed to stone wool aerosols. Acta Stomatologica Croatica 21(1): 9-13

Presentation is made of the contamination with stone wool aerosols as a cause of the occurrence of subjective oral and other symptoms in workers of Termika from Novi Marof [Yugoslavia]. Eighty workers were examined in total. Oral testings were carried out in each worker and case history data were used in statistical data processing. Specimens of dust from the work place air were analyzed gravimetrically and microscopically. The analysis performed revealed the concentration of contamination with stone wool aerosols to be sufficient for the onset of subjective oral xerostomia (25%), stomatopyrosis (17,5%), altered gustatory sensitivity (15%), halitosis (15%) and glossopyrosis (5%), and they were more intense in workers with prolonged exposure. A significant difference was observed in workers who had been in a direct daily contact with stone wool as compared to the control subjects (p < 0.05).
