Methods: Dental and gingival conditions of third year dental students were recorded, they were (57) with age range from (20-21) years, (46) boys and (11) girls. The statistical significance was calculated using T-significance comparison test.
Results: The results showed a high caries prevalence (96.7) which is higher among females than males with non significant difference, while for periodontal condition; gingivitis scores were found to be equal for both genderes which is low grade or very mild gingivitis, both plaque and calculus values were less among females than males also these results were non- significant.
Conclusion: Oral health status was impaired among dental students of third class which may be attributed to the low level of dental education at this period.

Abstract

ABSTRACT
Background: Dental caries and periodontal diseases are the most important etiological factors for tooth mortality. The aim of this study was to investigate the oral health status among a group of children in Yemen.
Materials and methods: A sample of 122 children with age range 6-12 years attending the preventive clinic in Dahmar University in Yemen. Dental caries was estimated using the dmfs/DMFS indices following the WHO criteria.
Results: A high caries percentage (93.6%) was found. Caries experience of deciduous teeth was decreasing with age accompanied by increase among permanent teeth. Caries active males were higher than females. Most of the children had a mild gingivitis, which tended to increase with age. Severity of gingivitis was significantly higher among boys than girls.
Conclusion: The low caries percentage may need further investigation to study dietary habits and fluoride level in water.
Keywords: Dental caries, gingivitis, children. (J Bagh Coll Dentistry 2006; 18(1)76-79)
