    Challenges with the sweetest patients- potential barriers in dental management of children with diabetes

    Diabetes is an utmost public health problem of 21st century, and type 1 diabetes (T1D) is the most common form of this chronic disease in children. It is caused by insulin deficiency, which is a predisposing factor for oral diseases (periodontal disease, gingivitis, oral infections, and caries). Literature reveals that oral health care providers are mostly concerned about glycaemic variability, hypo- and hyperglycaemia, and that their low confidence level was associated with low knowledge level. It highlights the need for additional education of oral health care providers so they could cope with T1D children before, during or after dental treatment. Maintaining blood glucose level in the safe range, the appropriate usage of devices for continuous glucose monitoring and managing the stress provoked by dental intervention, are skills should be overpowered. Pediatricians and pediatric endocrinologists should collaborate with oral health providers and educate patients about their increased risk for oral health problems, motivate them for good oral health behaviours and facilitate access to dental care. This presentation will bring priceless tips on how to cope with children with T1D who need a dental treatment.
