Eine Ernährung aus fermentierbaren Kohlenhydraten ist bekannterweise hoch kariogen, besonders im Falle von zuckerhaltigem Essen wie zum Beispiel Datteln. Diese Ernährung ist bei der späteisenzeitlichen Samad-zeitlichen Bevölkerung Omans zu beobachten. 32 Erwachsene und 5 Jugendliche dienten für diese Studie als Erhebung. Vorzeitiger Zahnverlust war in allen Fällen nachweisbar.
