    • ORAL HEALTH: PERCEPTION AND PRACTICESIN A RURAL COMMUNITY OF DOIWALA
      Dr. Seema Diwan, Department of Dental Sciences
      HIHT University
    • DOIWALA
    • - 798 participants above 3 years of age
      • Three age groups
      • Questionnaire
      • Oral check-up
    • I.Oral health perception
      1. “How is the health of your teeth and gums?”
    • 2. “Did you have pain in your teeth or gums
      in the next 12 months?”
    • 3. “How many times you visited a dentist
      in the past 12 months?”
    • 4. “Do you wear a denture?”
    • Conclusion
      1.Oral health perception in rural
      Community of Doiwala is very high
      inspite of their bad oral health status.
      2. People do not give importance to oral cavity, hence they need oral health education.
    • II. Oral health practices
      1. “How often do you brush your teeth?”
    • 2. “What do you use for brushing?”
    • 3. “How often do you eat sticky food
      like bread or bisquits?”
    • Conclusion
      1. People are saying that they brush their oral
      cavity everyday with plastic tooth brush but
      oral health status does not confirm this finding.
      It shows that they are aware of brushing.
      (may be from media)
      Young population is consuming sticky food
      more than adults. So they need more education
      to keep better oral hygeine.
    • SUMMARY
      Rural population is having very high perception of oral health but oral health status is not good.
      Oral health education is necssary for whole population but young people require more attention.
