Knowledge And Awareness About Class II Dental Caries Among Dental Practitioners Among The South Indian Population.

Author: RINIESHAH R.BASKRAN, MANISH RANJAN
Abstract: Dental caries can be traced to be as old as civilisation with it’s evidence seen even in skeletal remains of prehistoric humans. It is a multifactorial infectious disease characterised by demineralisation of inorganic and destruction of organic substances of the tooth. According to G.V. Blacks classification, a class II dental caries is a multifactorial disease that affects only the proximal aspect of the posterior dentition. India, a developing country has shown an inclined trend of this disease over a relatively short period of time.A questionnaire composed of 10 structured questions with multiple choices were distributed via an online survey platform - Survey Planet. Total of 101 responses were recorded and analysed. The frequency of male participants was 66.3% and female participants were 33.7%. There was statistical significance between the questions asked and the answers chosen. (p value<0.05) Within the limits of this survey, there was clear evidence that the dental practitioners were equipped with the knowledge and awareness of class II dental caries.
