AIM OF THE STUDY: The present study aim is to evaluate and correlate between HbA1c, salivary pH and oral bacterial microflora (streptococcus and lactobacillus CFU) related to dental caries in normal,controlled and uncontrolled type II diabetic patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study involves 90 samples. HbA1c test is recorded and grouped into 3 group (normal, controlled and uncontrolled diabetic). Salivary and swab sample was taken to evaluate for CFU (streptococcus and lactobacillus). Salivary pH is measured with pH strip with colour coding. By using ANOVA test and Post hoc test, p value is significant <0.05. RESULTS: The colony forming unit of streptococcus and lactobacillus in saliva spit and swab method is statistically significant among normal, controlled and uncontrolled diabeteic. In uncontrolled diabetic patients higher incidence of dental caries, higher CFU in bacterial microflora and lower salivary pH than controlled diabetic and normal. CONCLUSION: The present study has revealed a slight increase in the CFU of streptoccus mutans in uncontrolled diabetic patients, than when compared with controlled diabetic patients. This increase in CFU and decrease in salivary PH is strongly associated with an increase in the incidence of Dental caries in uncontrolled diabetic patients.
