Widespread use of wireless communication made it necessary to investigate the long term effect of mobile phone, which is the most popular technological equipment in the earth. One of the important parts of body that absorbs, radiation emitted from mobile phones is oral tissue. However mobile phone users and also scientists usually do not pay attention on effect of mobile phone e exposure on oral tissue. Therefore, there is no epidemiological and experimental studies focused on this part of body. The aim of this study was to investigate the of GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) -Modulated 900 MHz radiofrequency radiation 017 trace element content of rat teeth. Thirty one Wistar Albino adult male rats were divided into three groups: experimental group (each, n=14), shame group (n=7), and cage control group (n=10). Head of the rats in the experimental group were & exposed to GSH-Modulated 900 MHz radiofrequency radiation for 2 hours per day during ten months. At the end of the exposure period, the contents of some trace elements as Ca, Mg, Zn, and P were measured in the oral tissue. The measurements were performed by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AAS). However phosphorus content of teeth was measured h.); ultraviolet spectrophotometer (UVS).
