Abstract

Summary: The study we included 74 examinees (43 experimental and 31 in control group) of both genders at the age of 5 years. The purposes of our study is to determine the relationship of some salivary parameters in group subjects with primary teeth, with and without caries. Results. The differences in values of the examined parameters between the two groups of examinees were not significant for calcium (p = 0,61), about the total proteins in the saliva of children in the control group this difference was significantly higher (p = 0,000) compared to the value of total proteins in the saliva of children in the experimental group, the value of total antioxidant capacity in the saliva of children in the control group was significantly higher (p = 0,000) compared to the value of total antioxidant capacity in the saliva of children in the experimental group. The value of IgG and IgA in the saliva of children in the control group was also significantly higher (p = 0,000) compared to the value of IgA in the saliva of children in the experimental group. The value of the OHI index in the saliva of children in the experimental group for Z = -3,02 and p<0,01 (p = 0,00) was significantly higher than the value of the OHI index in the saliva of children in the control group. The distribution of data for magnesium does not deviate from the normal distribution and was tested with t-test whereby the value of the magnesium in the saliva of children in the control group was higher than in the experimental group, but the difference for t = 0,25 and p> 0,05 (p = 0,81) was not significant. The examined relationship between the presence of dental caries in children with primary dentition as a dependent parameter and values of calcium, magnesium, total proteins, total antioxidant capacity, immunoglobulin A, immunoglobulin G and OHI index in saliva as independent parameters, was for R = 0,74 and p <0,001 (p = 0,000) and also existence of very strong significant correlation. Conclusion The results obtained in our study show that wide range of ingredients which are present in the saliva may provide relevant indicators with clinical diagnostic and applicative significance, that make saliva an excellent medium for this type of researches.
