Objectives: To investigate the association between parental age, education and occupation on the child’s oral health among preschool children of Bhopal, India.
Methods: A cross sectional study was conducted among the Pre-school children and their parents of Bhopal City, Madhya Pradesh, India. The modified WHO oral health assessment proforma (1997) was used for this purpose. General information related to age, sex, educational level, occupation and monthly income were collected using a self-reported, close ended questionnaire. Statistical analysis was done using SPSS Version 20. Descriptive statistics and spearman’s correlation were applied wherever indicated.
Results: The study subjects comprised of a total of 1383 preschool children, out of which 759 (54.88%) were males and 624 (45.12%) were females. The prevalence of gingivitis among male study subjects was 3.69% and females were 3.21% and dental caries prevalence was in the range of 25.6% to 28.7%. Parental education had a correlation with gingivitis and a few were found to be statistically significant (p < 0.05).
Discussion: “Black Bone” MRI has considerable clinical potential as a non-ionising alternative to CT in the assessment of the medial palatine suture.
Conclusion: “Black Bone” MRI has considerable clinical potential as a non-ionising alternative to CT in the assessment of the medial palatine suture.
