  1. 1. Kavita Rai, SciVerse ScienceDirect29 march 2012
  2. 2.  Autistic children like soft and sweetenedfood. A wide spectrum of medical, psychologicaland behavioural symptoms makes dental caredifficult in them. Many studies have found no or littledifferences in the caries status betweenautistic children and normal children therebynecessitating the need to assess theprotective role of saliva.
  3. 3.  Most psychiatric disorders are associated withincreased oxidative stress. It shows, temper tantrums, hyperactivity, selfinjurious behaviour and inability to expressthemselves and these increases the stresslevels and alter the antioxidant levels The need to evaluate the oral health status,salivary pH and salivary total antioxidantconcentration of these children.
  4. 4.  Study groups : Medium functioning (IQ:50-70)Low functioning (IQ<50) Control group : siblings of these children The un-stimulated whole saliva samples werecollected 9-10 am from both group Oral health and treatment needs :OHI-S Dentition status and treatment needs : WHOoral health assessment form. The salivary total anti-oxidant level :spectrophotometer , PH : pH indicating paper
  5. 5.  66/101 autistic children had caries. 74/101 autistic children had mixed dentition 31/74 children had dental caries
  6. 6.  Incidence of dental caries in autistic childrenand siblings is non significant. Salivary TAC gives an indication to thesusceptibility of oral disease. Autistic children : 8.14 micrograms/ml Siblings : 43.31 micrograms/ml Emotional and psychological stress increasethe bodily concentration of oxidizingsubstances, such as ROS, free radicalsdecreased salivary antioxidant levels
  7. 7.  Parafunctional habits such as thumbsucking, mouth breathing and tonguethrusting lower antioxidant levels Perioral hypotonic musculature makes themanatomical mouth breathers, gingivitis Low functioning group has lowest salivaryTAC dute to more severely compromisedability, stressful conditions.
  8. 8.  Similar dental caries status was observed inchildren with autism and their healthy normalsiblings. Oral hygiene was poor in children with autism. Salivary TAC was significantly reduced inautistic children than healthy counterparts.
