Anna Nenova- Nogalcheva [3] | Desislava Konstantinova [5] | Yanka Alexandrova

Abstract: The authors aimed to investigate the contributing factors for certain oral manifestations characteristic of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The study involved 70 CKD patients. The objective findings were gathered using criteria for the extent of tongue coating and by means of FitScan Breath Checker. Patients oral hygiene was measured using Greene and Vermillions index. The results indicated statistically significant correlations between the type of dentition and the extent of halitosis and between the patients age and the degree of tongue coating. The study demonstrated the influence of functional pathology on the incidence of dental rows defects with age and among CKD patients.
