Abstract

Objective

The present study was taken up to establish the association of leucocyte count with dental caries.

Materials and methods

A total of 100 young adults, (50 male and 50 female), were recruited in the study after obtaining the written informed consent from the participants. Dental caries was assessed following the guidelines of International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS). Differential leucocyte count was performed using Leishman's stain manually following the standard guidelines available in the literature.

Results

There was negative correlation between the dental caries and the neutrophil count. Positive correlation was observed between the dental caries and eosinophil, monocyte, lymphocyte and basophil counts.

Conclusion

The study recommends the need for further detailed studies to understand the association between these two variables possibly to use the DLC as a nearly diagnostic as well as a prognostic method for dental caries management.
