Kruskal-Wallis test was performed to see if there were differences in mean age, UWSFR and number of missing teeth between gutka-chewers, BQ-chewers and controls.
There was no statistically significant difference in the mean UWSFR among BQ-chewers (0.56+-0.1 mL/min [range: 0.5-0.6 mL/min]) (p=0.17) and gutka-chewers (0.57+-0.1 mL/min [range: 0.5-0.6 mL/min]) (p=0.14) compared to controls (0.56mL/min [range: 0.5-0.6 mL/min]).
A poor oral hygiene status and reduced salivary flow rate have been associated with an increased oral Candida carriage.10,24 In the present study, UWSFR among gutka-chewers and BQ-chewers was comparable.
