However, the existence of a chronic condition may determine a high concern for general preventive care, resulting in an overall improvement of their oral health, which could justify the results.

Type 1 diabetic patients treated with insulin pump don’t have a higher prevalence of dental caries. There were no statistically significant differences between the two groups as regards oral hygiene habits and frequency of visits to the dentist.

Although diabetics’ diet is less abundant in carbohydrates, which provides a smaller exposure to cariogenic food, the regularity of meals can increase the risk of caries since the critical pH for demineralization is reached frequently throughout the day. The aim of the present study was to establish a relationship between the prevalence of dental caries in Type 1 diabetic patients treated with insulin pump and that of non-diabetic patients.

During the clinical evaluation a case report form adapted to the objectives of the investigation was completed.

To describe the knowledge on the cariogenic potential of certain foods, to analyze frequency and moment of ingestion, and to compare consumption of cariogenic food in groups with different socio-economic levels.

Diabetic patients showed similar levels on the caries and plaque index to non-diabetic patients. Daily frequency of consumption was significantly associated to the moment of ingestion between meals.

Translation of “non-cariogenic” in Spanish

In groups with different socio-economic levels no statistically significant differences were found. An observational clinical study of analytical and cross-sectional nature was conducted.

Type 1 diabetes mellitus and oral health are strictly related on a reciprocal basis, and an increased susceptibility to a wide variety of oral diseases is recognised in these patients. The sample consisted of 30 adults with diabetes mellitus treated with insulin pump selected from the Coimbra Hospital and Universitary Centre and 30 nondiabetic adults selected from the ones accompanying the diabetic patients.


Information concerning the study variables was collected through an in-home survey in the city of Corrientes, Argentina in A simple random sampling design was applied, which was complemented with a non-probability quota sampling.


One dentist evaluated all of the patients between January and May of in the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Coimbra. Most survey respondents can differentiate cariogenic from non-cariogenic food.
