  • Abstract

    Dental caries involves the endogenous oral bacteria. There are several evidence for considering passive smoking as one of the etiologies in dental caries development. In children who are exposed to smoking environments, Vitamin C is found in low level, and low levels of Vitamin C are associated with decreased immune function and Streptococcus mutans growth. Decrease saliva and reduces buffering capacity in children are also associated with passive smoking. Passive smoking can also reduce remineralization, the rate of bacterial clearance, and enhance bacterial colonization and may result in dental caries. This article is to review on parental smoking and its association with dental caries in children.
