The Effect Of Systemic Zinc Supplementation On Oral Health In Low Socioeconomic Level Children
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
Oral supplementation of 15mg elemental zinc to children daily over the course of 10 weeks is associated with reduced rates of plaque formation, which is thought to reduce the development of dental caries. While gingivitis decreased with zinc as well, it also decreased in placebo and the difference was not significant.
