Resumen

MARTINEZ, Sandra Elena; JUAREZ, Rolando Pablo; VILA, Vilma Graciela  y  HORMAECHEA, María Inés. Relationship between Bucal Health and Salivary Immunoglobulin. A concentration in adolescents. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.21, pp.38-44. ISSN 1688-9339.

Objective: the aim of this study was to evaluate the possible relationship between bucal health of adolescents and IgA concentration in saliva. Method: we conducted a cross-sectional study. The population consisted of individuals of both sexes, without systemic pathologies. All selected patients underwent a complete medical history, caries index, plaque and gingival index. For the dosage of IgA in saliva sample was collected from each patient involved in the research. The technique used for the determination of IgA in saliva, was the radial immunodiffusion (RID). Results: 86% of the sample showed an index decay of 13.17 and 54% showed gingival and plaque indexes of 1.34 and 40.15% respectively. A significant inverse correlation was found between salivary IgA and the caries values. Conclusion: saliva may have a modulating influence on the microorganisms involved in caries, through the secretion of IgA
