Abstract Objective: We aimed to conduct a systematic review of the literature regarding the association between asthma and caries, assess the effect of asthma on the occurrence of caries in primary and permanent dentitions, and determine factors that could affect the estimates of this association. Data source: We used the following databases: PubMed, Web of Science, SCOPUS, and LILACS/BVS, for the literature review. Study selection: We included observational studies that investigated the… 
Comparison of dental caries (DMFT and DMFS indices) between asthmatic patients and control group in Iran: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Having asthma could be considered a risk factor for the development of dental caries, according to the results, which are higher among patients with asthma than in the control group.
Association between asthma and severe tooth loss in the adult population of the United States

TLDR
In the United States, current-asthmatic adults were more likely to have severe tooth-loss, and oral health promotion is recommended through medical-dental integration to ensure overall health for asthmatic adults.
Association between asthma and dental caries in US (United States) adult population
TLDR
Current-asthmatic adults had higher odds of dental- caries-experience and untreated-dental-caries as compared to never-asstmatic adults in the US, and interprofessional collaboration should be recommended to institute caries control and health promotion in current- asthmatic adult population.
Impact of inhaler use on dental caries in asthma pediatrics patients: A case-control study.
TLDR
There is a direct relationship between treatment duration and the prevalence of dental caries, and it was evidenced that a longer duration of inhaler use led to a significantly higher DMFT index.

TLDR
Salivary characteristics and oral health were significantly poor in asthmatic adolescents and Asthma and its medications had significant impact on salivARY characteristics and dental caries among astHmatic adolescents.
Enhancement of cariogenic virulence properties of dental plaque in asthmatics
TLDR
An increase in acidogenic and mature plaque is found in asthmatics and the expression of spaP, gtfB, gbpB, ldh, brpA and luxS in dental plaque are upregulated in astHmatics.
THE IMPACT OF ASTHMAAND ITS MEDICATIONS ON DENTAL CARIES STATUS AND STREPTOCOCCUS MUTANS COUNT IN CHILDREN: A CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDY
TLDR
Prevalence of dental caries and cariogenic bacteria is higher in asthmatic children than healthy children according to DMFT/deft index and colony score.

Asthma and caries: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Evidence from this analysis suggests that asthma doubles the risk of caries in both primary and permanent dentition, and Physicians and dentists should recommend preventive measures against caries for persons with asthma.
Is there a relationship between asthma and dental caries?: a critical review of the literature.
TLDR
The authors found that researchers have investigated the hypothesized relationship between asthma and caries by means of diverse strategies, often using asthma cases clustered in pools of patients seeking clinical care and the strongest methodological designs were more likely to reveal little support for a positive association.
Asthma and dental caries
TLDR
Evidence from this analysis suggests that asthma doubles the risk of caries in both primary and permanent dentition and Physicians and dentists should recommend preventive measures against caries for people with asthma.
Bronchial asthma and dental caries risk: results from a case control study.
TLDR
A significantly higher prevalence of caries among asthmatic patients as compared to the matched control group as well as a positive correlation between the duration of asthma and the caries indices are shown.
Association between asthma and dental caries in the primary dentition of Mexican children
TLDR
Nocturnal asthma symptoms appear to be associated with dental caries in the primary dentition, but asthma is not associated with caries.
Caries experience in asthmatic children: a review of literature.
TLDR
It is concluded that the individualistic nature of asthmatic condition, through either its disease status or its pharmacotherapy (diferent combinations of medicaments), or attempts to alleviate the condition's physiologic sequelea, carries several factors for an increased caries risk.
Influence of anti-asthmatic medications on dental caries in children in Slovenia.
TLDR
Children with asthma who had used anti-asthmatic medications had higher caries experience in primary and permanent teeth, and asthma diagnosis, child's age, daily use of inhaled glucocorticoids, length and frequency of medicine application, spacer use, mouth rinsing with water after Medicine application, parents' education, frequent food and drink consumption, and frequencyof toothbrushing were associated with cariesExperience of asthmatic children.
Is Asthma a Risk Factor for Dental Caries? Findings from a Cohort Study
TLDR
There were no significant differences in caries increment between the 206 asthma–free participants and any of the asthma groups, and little evidence for an asthma–caries causative relationship is provided.
Caries is Associated with Asthma and Epilepsy
TLDR
Asthma and epilepsy are associated with higher caries experience, and these diseases are direct or mediated by underlying factors such as health behaviors.
Dental Caries-Associated Microorganisms in Asthmatic Children
TLDR
It is concluded that a more comprehensive precise oral health training program needs to be established by complete evaluation of the dental caries status in asthmatic children and also by training them regarding the technique of using inhalers with a spacer to lower the complications and costs of dentalCaries.
