Description:

Introduction : Dental caries is a common oral disease among children with a worldwide distribution. Dental caries has a predilection for the pits, fissures, proximal and occlusal surfaces of teeth.

Aim: The study will describe the caries pattern and prevalence of Paediatric dental patients in Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.

Methods: It will be a retrospective study using dental records of Paediatric dental patients in Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria. Data to be collected includes age, sex, caries presentation - decayed, missing due to caries and filled teeth and the treatment carried out. Data collected will be analysed using SPSS. Results will be presented as tables and charts, mean and standard deviation will be calculated. The level of significance will be set at 5%.

Expected Results:  The prevalence of caries in the population will be calcuated. The most commonly affected arch and tooth (primary and permanent) will be recorded. The most common treatment done will also be evaluated.

Conclusion: The caries prevalence and pattern of presentation of patients attending the Paediatric dental clinic, LASUTH will be compared with that of other centres in and outside Lagos. It is important to evaluate the prevalence and distribution of caries in any given population in order to provide preventive and therapeutic solutions targeted at the needs of the population.

THE AGE AND REASON OF FIRST VISIT AMONG CHILDREN SEEN AT THE PAEDIATRIC DENTAL UNIT OF THE LAGOS STATE UNIVERSITY TEACHING HOSPITAL

Research Details

Introduction: Establishing good oral health throughout infancy and early childhood sets the foundation for a lifetime of good dental health thus the importance of a child’s age at first dental visit.

 

Aim: To determine the age and reason of first visit among children seen at the Paediatric dental clinic of LASUTH.

 

 Methods: This is a retrospective study which will be carried out amongst children who attended the Paediatric dental department, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. The dental records of children between the age of 0 and 16 years who visited the clinic between January 2018 and May 2022 will be reviewed. Information to be retrieved include gender, age at first dental visit and reasons for visit.

 

 Statistical analysis will be done using IBM SPSS software (version 23.0; IBM Corporation, Armonk, NY, USA). Continuous data will be presented as means with standard deviation, whereas categorical variables will be presented as frequencies and percentages.  Descriptive statistics and Chi square analysis will be conducted, and the level of significance set at P < 0.05.

 

 Contributions: Early visit to the dentist is not only to assess child’s dentition, but to help the child get familiar with the dental environment thereby reducing dental anxiety. It gives parents an opportunity to get guidance regarding their child's oral hygiene, dietary practices, oral diseases preventive measures, oral habits, and prevention of traumatic injuries. It also provides an opportunity for parents to address their concerns and questions regarding their child's oral care
