Dental technicians may be chronically exposed to methyl methacrylate (MMA), used in the production of dental prostheses. We have studied whether occupational exposure to MMA affects genotoxicity biomarkers such as 8-OHdG formation, comet assay, and buccal micronucleus frequency. MMA exposure was assessed via ambient air analysis. Although no significant differences between exposed and non-exposed individuals were seen with respect to blood genotoxicity measurements, we found a higher level of buccal-cell anomalies in the exposed group.
