11:50am – 12:05pm — Dental caries and periodontal disease experience in children with type 1 diabetes allitus
Presented by Dr Emilija Ports
There is evidence to support a two-way relationship with periodontitis and diabetes, however, there is limited research for type 1 diabetes in the paediatric population. Our research, in its preliminary stages, focused on children aged 8-18 years and found a relationship between type 1 diabetes and poorer periodontal health. Children with type 1 diabetes should be acknowledged as a specific group at risk of periodontal disease.
Discuss the current evidence for a relationship between periodontal disease and type 1 diabetes in children
Identify the early periodontal changes in children with type 1 diabetes
