JOURNAL TITLE: Journal of Oral Health and Community Dentistry
The study was conducted for the first time in Ghaziabad city and its adjoining areas to determine the prevalence and severity of dental caries in 3-15 year old children in the area and to know the effect of age, socioeconomic status, diet, oral hygiene practices and attitude towards dental awareness to caries prevalence and severity in different dentitions.
1500 children, 500 each from primary, mixed and permanent dentition were examined using WHO 1997 guidelines. The results were tabulated and statistically analyzed.
The overall caries prevalence in 3-15 year old population in Ghaziabad city and adjoining areas determined was 51.46%.
It was also seen that attitude towards age, dental awareness and socioeconomic status were significantly related to caries prevalence and severity in different dentitions and the global goal of oral health by 2000 has been achieved by this population.
