Abstract:   (218 Views)
 Because of the lack of written deal with the oral and dental health in city of Fasa from1998 onwards and also to make the infrastructure for related studies and dental public interventions, this study was conducted to study indices of dmft and DMFT (Decayed, Missing, Filling, Teeth) in children of Fasa city.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out in 2014 on 4,400 children of pre-school and primary school in the city of Fasa selected in multistage sampling from urban and rural. Checks were done by health professionals under the supervision of a dentist at schools and the numbers of decayed, missing and filled teeth were determined and separated regarding the primary and permanent teeth.
Results: The dmft and DMFTindices were 4.45±3.43 and 1.26±1.64, respectively, that showed no significant difference between male and female students (P = 0.280 and P= 0.200 respectively). The number of decayed primary teeth in boys was more than that of girls (P=0.015) and the number of filled primary teeth was more in girls comparing to that of boys (P<0.001). Both indicators were smaller in urban schools than rural areas (P<0.001). SiC index (Significant Caries) for the selected population were 10.18±2.23.
Conclusion: The results exposed a high level of dmft index in children under 14, especially in rural areas. In order to control this problem, in addition to preventive and medicinal interventions, improving the awareness of society at different levels is suggested
