The objectives of this study were to determine the impact of cadmium (Cd) on several tooth mineral content. The tooth mineral content that investigated in this present study are calcium (Ca), Phosphate (P), magnesium (Mg), and zinc (Zn). Teeth samples were taken from 25 human maxillary premolar-1 free of caries and defects. All the teeth samples were extracted in Dental Faculty, University of Lambung Mangkurat, Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan, Indonesia. Each of tooth sample was put in the water contained Cd in the form of cadmium sulphat (CdSO4) with concentration 1 mg/l for 96 hours. The mineral content of the tooth estimation were made from 0 hours and every 24 hour, so the teeth samples can be divided into 5 groups based on the time of Cd exposure (T1: 0 hours; T2: 24 hours; T3: 48 hours; T4: 72 hours; and T5: 96 hours). The results of this present study show that the administration of Cd led to a significant decrease of Ca, P, Mg, and Zn level in the tooth. The results suggest that Cd exposure can affect several mineral content in the tooth, including Ca, P, Mg, and Zn. Keywords: Cadmium, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphate, Tooth, Zinc
