Lead exposure in the air comes from the emissions of vehicles, which can damage human health. Exposure to lead will affect the brain, kidneys, and blood. The presence of lead in the body can be seen through a bluish pigmentation in the oral mucosa or gingival lead line. Traffic officers have a high risk of lead exposure which has been demonstrated by the result of previous studies where 96.67% of traffic officers had a gingival lead line. This study aimed to determine the gingival lead line in traffic officers in Surabaya Capital City Police. This study was an descriptive observational study with a cross-sectional approach. The samples in this study were 98 traffic officers, and it used a simple random sampling technique. Data was collected by conducting interviews, intraoral examination, and laboratory tests. All obtained data was analyzed using cross-tabulation and odd ratio measurement with the SPSS program. Gingival lead lines were classified into two categories, i.e. moderate and poor. A moderate gingival lead line was found in 38 respondents, and the remaining 60 were classified as a poor gingival lead line. The results of measurement of the odd ratio (OR) between the gingival lead line and smoking habit, as well as gingival lead line and blood lead level were 3.436 and 1.018, respectively. This showed that a smoking habit and blood lead level were risk factors for a gingival lead line. A gingival lead line was found more in traffic officers who smoked and had excessive blood lead levels.
