The Link Between Asthma and Tooth Decay

The Link Between Asthma and Tooth Decay

To test the relationship between asthma and tooth decay, data from Medline, government reports and conference proceedings were searched, allowing only for objective criteria.  In all, 11 studies on the primary dentition were included, and 15 on permanent dentition.  The studies were then analyzed.  Evidence from this analysis suggests that  asthma doubles the risk of decay in both the primary and permanent teeth.  If you or your child have asthma, taking preventive measures (home care, routine dental examinations, etc.) are important!
