Abstract
According to the complications followed by metabolic changes such as xerostomia and increasing the glucose level in saliva, it is expected that the prevalence of caries in diabetics would be more than of non-diabetic individuals. On the other hand, the restriction of glucose consumption in the diabetics’ diet would be a reason to justify decreasing dental caries in them. The aim of this study was to compare the mean of DMFT index in type 1 diabetic children with healthy children. DMFT index was assessed in 100 type 1 diabetic children (9-14 year old) and compared with 100 age-and sex matched metabolically healthy controls. Data collected through a questionnaire and clinical examinations were analyzed statistically by t-test and one-way ANOVA. Results showed that there were no significant differences between the mean DMFT index of diabetic children and healthy children. The mean DMFT for those who regularly used tooth brushing and flossing was significantly higher than those who didn’t in both groups. In conclusion, diabetes didn’t affect dental condition by itself and adequate oral hygiene had an important role to control caries and promote oral status.
