Author: HANADI ALWAFI, ABDULLAH ALFAYEZ, JAYAPRIYAA SHANMUGHAM, ATHANASIOS ZAVRAS
Abstract: Background: Nigella sativa (N. Sativa) (Family Ranunculaceae) is a widely used medicinal plant throughout the world. The seeds and oil of the plant have a long history of folklore usage. Mainly it is prevalent in various traditional systems of medicine such as in Unani and Tibb and Siddha. Objectives: To explore the level of knowledge and perception towards the use and benefits of N. Sativas extracts and to describe the differences by sociodemographic characteristics among parents of Saudi children. Subjects and methods: A questionnaire was distributed to 576 parents of Saudi children in the waiting rooms of the School of Dentistry and the School of Medicine at King Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia. The questionnaire was distributed in 2017 to collect information on sociodemographic variables and other factors that are associated with the use of herbs for oral and systemic health. Statistical analysis was conducted to evaluate differences in the level of knowledge and perception. P-values less than 0.05 were considered statistically significant. Results: About 65% of the study participants were women (mean age = 43.9±15.1 years). Phytotherapy use for the treatment of oral problems was reported by 37% of patients interviewed in this study. There was a significant difference between users and non-users of herbal medicines to treat oral problems. Specifically, the parent’s age (p=<0.05) and previous experience with the use of phytotherapy to treat general health problems (p=<0.001) had a significant effect on the level of knowledge. Conclusions: The data of this study revealed that there is a need to stress the scientific evidence of the viability of herbal medicinal products currently used in the accessible knowledge to treat oral diseases. This could assist with making natural therapeutic items an available and alternative method for anticipation and treatment in dentistry.
