Blood glucose level, salivary pH and oral bacterial count in type 1 diabetic Children.
Infect Dis J Jan ;16(2):45-8.
Subjects with juvenile diabetes are more likely to have higher oral bacterial count as compared to those suffering from adult-onset diabetes mellitus, which accounts for more risk in the progression of oral complications in these patients. No studies have so far been conducted in Pakistan that compares the prevalence of dental caries in diabetic children. This review therefore signifies the scope of such analysis especially in relation to the salivary pH level and salivary bacterial count. Hence, prophylaxis and treatment can be targeted more efficiently to the at risk subjects. This is a review article.
