Brief description of study

The aim of this study is to evaluate adjuvant effect of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy in periodontal treatment and salivary status of type 1 diabetes patients.

Detailed Study Description

Diabetes Mellitus is a risk factor for periodontal disease increasing its prevalence, extension and severity. Periodontal disease is considered the sixth complication of diabetes. There is a global epidemic of diabetes, including an increase of type 1 diabetes incidence in younger patients.
