|Title:||Oral Health survey at an air base in Jordan|
Al Omari, M.A.
|Abstract:||The aim of this investigation was to assess the severity and prevalence of periodontal disease and dental caries in 507 subjects, ranging in age from 15 to 44 years, at an army air base in Jordan. Using the Community Periodontal Index for Treatment Needs [CPITN], it was found that prevalence of periodontal disease increased with age, but incidence of caries, gingivitis and calculus was alarmingly high in young adults [20-24 years]. Overall, the rate of decayed, missing and filled teeth [DMFT] is rising, a trend that has been noted in similar studies from other developing countries|
