    Abstract

    The aim of the study was to investigate the occurrence of dental caries and periodontitis in people with Crohn’s disease. The method that was used in this study was a general literature review. The material for the literature review was collected by searching in the databases Cinahl, PubMed and ScienceDirect. The keywords that were used in the searches in all of the databases were ”caries”, ”Crohn’s disease”, ”periodontal disease” and ”periodontitis”. The scientific articles that were included in the literature review were limited to ”English”, ”humans” and ”title/abstract” alternatively ”abstract/title/keywords”. The result of the literature review was based on a compilation of the results from twelve scientific articles. Ten of the twelve scientific articles concerned the occurrence of dental caries in people with Crohn’s disease and seven of them reported a significantly elevated prevalence of dental caries in these individuals. Three of the ten scientific articles reported that there was an elevated incidence of dental caries in people with Crohn’s disease but they did not show whether the elevated incidence was significant or not. Five of the twelve scientific articles concerned the occurrence of periodontitis in people with Crohn’s disease and four of them reported a significantly elevated prevalence of periodontitis in these individuals. The remaining scientific article that concerned the occurrence of periodontitis in people with Crohn’s disease reported that there was a slightly but no significantly elevated prevalence of periodontitis in people with Crohn’s disease. Three of the twelve scientific articles concerned both the occurrence of dental caries and periodontitis in people with Crohn’s disease. The conclusion of the literature review is that people with Crohn’s disease seems to have elevated occurrence of dental caries and periodontitis.
