The aim of this study was to describe the issue of changes in the concentration of some elements Mn, Fe, Mg, Cu, K, Cr, Pb, Cd, and Ca in the mineral composition of deciduous teeth and to answer the question whether there was a tendency to change the metal concentration, depending on children-s age. Physiological replacement of deciduous teeth is preceded with the remodeling process occurring in the mineral structure. The elemental composition of deciduous teeth tissue during their natural loss is the result of these transformations. The subject of the study was deciduous teeth taken from the children n = 45, aged 5–14 years, residing in southern Poland, obtained as a result of noninvasive physiological replacement. The concentration of metals in samples was determined over the atomic absorption spectroscopy method. The results of the research showed a statistically significant decrease in the concentration of the analyzed elements in deciduous teeth of older children compared to younger children. The total concentration of all metals studied against the Ca content, expressed as the value of the constant cationic equilibrium, did not change in a statistically significant manner, depending on the age of the children p > 0.05.
