Abstract
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a childhood neurologic disorder which can affect children’s oral health. Those children are managed with a combination of behavioral and pharmacologic therapies. The purpose of this study was to investigate a possible relationship between oral health status and pharmacological intervention in children and adolescents with ADHD. The patients with ADHD were divided into 3 groups; no pharmacological intervention (n=8), pharmacological intervention with stimulants (n=35), pharmacological intervention with non-stimulants (n=10). Healthy children and adolescents without ADHD (n=18) were assigned to the control group. Oral health status was evaluated according to salivary flow level, DMFT index, plaque index, and gingival index. Patients with ADHD demonstrated a statistically significant higher plaque index and gingival index than the control group (p<0.05). However, there were no differences in the salivary flow, DMFT index, plaque index, and gingival index between 3 groups. Within the limits of this study, oral health status in ADHD patients was not associated with type of interventions.
