Abstract

Aim Evidence suggests caries experience is higher in children with asthma. This study compared caries experience in asthmatic and non-asthmatic children and defined whether variation in the distribution of caries experience differed between the two groups and was dependent on the presence of genetic variation in enamel formation genes.
