    Background: some people had special problems causing them to have a stress and university dental students perceived a stress with certain examinations. So, there was a need for measuring the stress level in those participants by using useful biomarkers. Several studies considered cortisol as a biomarker of stress with other biomarkers that were used in conjunction. By clinical diagnosis and the appearance of the lesions, the stress related orofacial conditions were determined. Aim of the study: The aim of the study is to estimate and compare salivary (cortisol and IgA) levels in stress related orofacial conditions and normal people. Also, the differences between these markers in relation to these conditions. This could give an understanding to the role of stress in developing Oro-facial conditions. Subjects, materials, and methods: The participants included in this study were undergra.. Read More»
