Assessment of oral hygiene among outpatients in a dental college- a retrospective analysis

Author: JAYA KEERTHANA.S, L.LEELAVATHI, MARAGATHAVALLI.G
Abstract: Oral health has an important role in general health. Gender is the variable that contributes to oral health status globally. As many other aspects of human health, oral health differs between men and women especially at specific life stages. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association of gender with oral hygiene among out patients.The study was conducted in a university set up sample consisting of all patients who underwent oral screening from June 2019 – April 2020, were examined and included in our data collection. A total of 8553 case sheets were reviewed. The statistical analysis was done using SPSS software (SPSS version 21.0, SPSS, Chicago II, USA). The data was analysed using a chi- square test. The p value of less than 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. 47% of males had good OHIS scores, 48.2% had fair OHIS scores and 4.8% had poor OHIS scores. Nearly 52.6% of females had good OHIS scores, 43.6% had fair OHIS scores, 3.6% had poor OHIS scores. It was observed that good OHIS score was more in females when compared to males and this was statistically significant.(p value- 0.00<0.05) Within the limitations of the study, it was observed that females had notably good oral hygiene status when compared to the males.
