Article: CARIES DETECTIOIN METHODS AWARENESS[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: In Saudi Arabia, decayed, missing, and filled teeth (dmft) score in the adult and young populations continues to be high (5.38 for primary teeth and 3.34 for permanent ones). Therefore, the need for proper detection and diagnosis of early carious lesion is crucial. Purpose: In this study, we evaluated senior students, Interns and fresh graduates and postgraduates’ awareness and familiarization with the latest trends in caries detection. Materials and Methods: A questionnaire was formulated to evaluate senior dental students, interns, fresh graduates and postgraduates’ awareness and knowledge regarding methods of caries detection. The Questionnaire was distributed in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Results: 154 participants answered the questionnaire. Responses expressed low utilization of the International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS) (7.4%) or adjunct advanced technologies as methods for caries detection. Lack of knowledge or availability issues were reported. Post-graduate dentists never use newer methods for detection or even ICDAS. This finding is disappointing because they are highly educated participants. Conclusion: It was clear that proper implementation of using newer caries detection methods is a must in undergraduate years together with familiarizing students with ICDAS caries detection scale.Egyptian dental journal 10/2014; 60(4):4443-4448.
