Abstract

This study investigated the most common cause leading to tooth extraction in the local population and identified the most commonly extracted tooth. Additionally, the researchers investigated the existence of any significant association between the variables of age, gender and ethnicity with the causes of tooth extraction

Methodology: 50 patients involving a span of 8 months in 2021 were selected. Records of a total of 59 teeth were examined of this sample and the information regarding their ethnicity, gender and age was duly noted. Additionally, the patient's medical history, extracted tooth number and the causes of extraction were also noted. The data was compiled and analysed.

Result: The main cause of extraction was dental caries and its sequelae (39%). It was also found that the variables of age, gender and ethnicity correlated very weakly and the relationship was not significant, in all cases.

Conclusion: The prime reason for tooth extraction is caries and its sequelae followed by periodontal diseases. Age, gender and ethnicity do not correlate significantly with causes of extraction.
