Background and Objectives: Dental caries and chronic generalized periodontitis are the two most common oral diseases of the adult population. Etiology of these two diseases is entirely different along with the other salivary factors like salivary Ph, calcium, phosphorous levels etc. Depending on these variations an inverse relationship exists between these diseases. Hence the aim of the study was to evaluate the prevalence of dental caries in chronic generalized periodontitis patients.
Materials and Method: Sample consisted of 60 patients diagnosed with chronic generalized periodontitis using DMFT and CPI index.
Results: The mean DMFT scores of our test group were 3.13 ± 1.53 and mean number of decayed teeth was 2.23±1.12.
Conclusion: The prevalence of dental caries was lower in chronic generalized periodontitis patients. Hence we would like to conclude that preventive measures have to be considered in such patients to lower the risk of caries.
