Toxicity of metals is due to the harmful effect in certain forms and doses. Some metals become toxic when they form soluble compounds or in a certain chemical structure at certain doses (eg lead, mercury and candium). Not only heavy metals are toxic metals, there are also light metals that can become toxic, some of which are essential elements (iron, selenium, copper, chromium, zinc) and metals used therapeutically in medicine (aluminum, bismuth, gold, gallium, lithium and silver) may have negative effects when administered in large quantities or the elimination from the human body is deficient. Metal poisoning occurs through nutrition, medication, environmental factors. Most professional pollutants with intraoral manifestations appear in the heavy industry. The oral cavity is an entry gate for various toxic pathogens, so intoxications can be detected early due to the manifestations inside the mouth.
