ABSTRACT:
Comparison of microflora in patients with controlled and uncontrolled diabetes. The aim of the study was to assess the microflora in patients with controlled and uncontrolled diabetes. The objective was to compare the accumulation and composition of microflora in patients with controlled and uncontrolled diabetes. Oral manifestations of diabetes mellitus have been discussed in the literature for a long time but many controversial aspects of signs and symptoms are being reviewed today. Symptoms such as hyposalivation or xerostomia associated to burning mouth, loss of taste, enlargement of salivary glands, mycotic infections represented by candidosis and other less frequent lesions such as lichen planus are reported. Microflora in the oral cavity may vary between patients with controlled and uncontrolled diabetes. The reason for the study was to understand about the prevalence of various microflora present in controlled diabetic patients and compare the microflora with that of the microflora present in uncontrolled diabetic patients.
