2018-07-11 09:07:11 | BioPortfolio


Oral infections can trigger the production of pro-inflammatory mediators that may be risk factors for miscarriage. The investigators investigated whether oral health care patterns that may promote or alleviate oral inflammation were associated with the history of miscarriage in Turkish women.


Power analysis was performed with the G-Power software package to determine sample size.

To cover possible data loss, 10% of a group were added to each group. Medical and dental examination will be performed both of control and experimental groups. In dental examination decayed, missing, or filled teeth (DMFT) index will be used according to World Health Organization (WHO 1997) criteria. All teeth were visually using the International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS-II).

To analyze the correlation between oral health status and miscarriage linear regression test and for comparison of both the groups (case and control), two sample t test and chi square test were used.
