Oral health among children with and without asthma (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Astma är en kronisk inflammatorisk luftvägssjukdom som är vanligt förekommande i alla åldersgrupper. Över 300 miljoner människor världen över beräknas ha sjukdomen.

Syfte: Syftet med litteraturstudien var att undersöka om den orala hälsan hos barn med astma skiljer sig från den orala hälsan hos barn utan astma.

Metod: Metoden som användes var en allmän litteraturstudie och litteratursökningarna gjordes i den medicinska databasen PubMed. Resultatet baseras utifrån en sammanställning av 13 vetenskapliga artiklar. Artiklarna var kliniska studier och 11 av dessa hade en kontrollgrupp där barn med och utan astma jämfördes. Övriga två artiklar studerade antingen hur den orala hälsan påverkades av kombinationsbehandling med specifika läkemedel eller jämförde den orala hälsan hos barn med olika duration och medicinering mot astma.

Resultat: Några av de inkluderade studierna fann att barn med astma hade en ökad kariesförekomst jämfört med barn utan astma, medan andra studier visade att det inte fanns någon skillnad mellan grupperna. Avseende plack, blödning och kariesrelaterade bakterier var resultaten också motstridiga. Barn med astma som medicinerades med β2-stimulerare kombinerat med kortikosteroider hade ett minskat salivflöde och en ökad nivå av kariesrelaterade bakterier.

Slutsats: Det finns motstridigheter kring om den orala hälsan hos barn med astma skiljer sig från den orala hälsan hos barn utan astma. Kombinationsbehandling med β2-stimulerare och kortikosteroider medför ett reducerat salivflöde och en ökad nivå av kariesrelaterade bakterier hos barn med astma.

Abstract [en]

Background: Asthma is a chronic inflammatory airway disease which is common in all ages. Over 300 million people worldwide are estimated to have the disease.

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate whether the oral health differs between children with and without asthma.

Method: The method used was a literature review and the literature searches were made in the medical database PubMed. The results were based on a compilation of 13 clinical scientific studies and 11 of these compared children with and without asthma. The remaining articles studied either how the oral health was affected by the combination treatment with specific drugs or compared the oral health of children with different duration and medication for asthma.

Results: Some of the included studies found that children with asthma had an increased cariesprevalence compared with children without asthma, while other studies showed that there was no difference between the groups. Regarding the plaque, bleeding and caries-related bacteria, the results were also conflicting. Medication with β2-agonist combined with corticosteroids contributed to a reduced salivary flow and an increased level of caries-related bacteria among children with asthma.

Conclusion: There are conflicting results regarding whether the oral health differs between children with and without asthma. Combination treatment with β2-agonists and corticosteroids contributed to a reduced salivary flow and an increased level of caries-related bacteria.
