    Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the amount of salivary total protein and calcium in patients with dental fluorosis. Introduction: Dental fluorosis is hypomineralization of tooth portrayed by expanded surface and subsurface porosity of the tooth, which causes darkness, setting, or recoloring of lacquer. Calcium and phosphate are principal for the development of bone and teeth and are basic for accomplishing ideal mass. Calcium, phosphate, and fluoride particles assume a vital part in the fight among demineralization and remineralization forms and in like manner adjust the helplessness of tooth to caries movement. Amid demineralization, calcium discharge goes before phosphate discharge from veneer, dentin, and cementum. Concoction demineralization of teeth is caused by acidic assault through two essential means: Dietary corrosive devoured through sustenance or drink and microbial assault from microorganisms introduce in the mouth. Human spit contains segments that can impact the arrangement of oral microflora. Numerous examinations on spit and dental caries have been accounted for; however, not very many have been worried about connection among salivation and dental fluorosis. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted in Chennai. The tests were carried out. 12 subjects were selected by simple random sampling and it is equally divided into control group and test group. In that particular block, the endemic fluorosis was diagnosed according to the clinical diagnosis criteria. The saliva samples were collected from the six test groups and six controls and stored at −20°C before analyzing after doing centrifugation. Salivary total protein and albumin level were estimated and A/G ratio was also determined. The data were statistically evaluated. Results: The study states that in fluorosis individuals due to increase in fluoride content there is remarkable decrease in the calcium and total protein. Conclusion: This study concludes that fluorosis can cause decrease in salivary total protein and calcium.
