Factor analysis for dental health status of junior high school students with experience or non experience of fluoride mouthrinse part 1. effect of fluoride mouthrinse experience on dental health status

The aim of this study was to ascertain the influence of fluoride mouthrinse experience at primary schoolchildren on dental health status of junior high school students (12-year-old). Oral inspections and dental health survey by collective questionnaire were conducted on 780 children aged 12 years during the 1985 scool year. 1. Caries prevalence (1) With regard to fluoride mouthrinse experience (6 years at primary school) and non-experience groups, mean DMFT of all teeth were indicated 3.2 and 4.1 and mean DMFS of all teeth indicated 5.3 and 7.0, respectively. There are 22.0% and 23.4% significant reduction (p < 0.001) in the mean DMFT and DMFS score of all teeth at age of 12 years. (2) Mean DMFT of maxillary incisors indicators 0.1 and 0.6 and mean DMFS of maxillary incisors indicated 0.3 and 1.1, respectively. There are 83.3% and 72.7% significant reduction (p < 0.001) in the mean DMFT and DMFS of maxillary incisors at 12 years of age as to fluoride mouthrinse experience and non-experience groups. (3) The percentage of decayed teeth (D/DMF) showed 13.6% and 26.5%, as to fluoride mouthrinse experience and non-experience groups, and that of filled teeth (F/DMF) showed 84.6% and 71.3%, respectively. Fluoride mouthrinse experience group showed significant higher percentage of filled teeth (p < 0.001) and lower percentage of decayed teeth (p < 0.001) compared with non-experience group. 2. Oral hygiene condition and gingivitis prevalence (1) Gingival Index(Loe and Silness)showed 0.40 and Plaque Index(Silness and Loe) for fluoride mouthrinse experience and non-experience groups, showed 0.25 and 0.25, respectively. No significant differences between both groups in degree of gingivitis and amounts of plaque were noted. 3. Results of dental health survey (1) Most of the responsed rates on individual dental health behavior (Oral cleansing behavior, Between-mean snacking, Acceptance of dental treatment) of selected items, were indicated no differences between both groups. (2) Responsed rates those who received preventive treatment during dental visits were indicated statistically no differences between both groups and these proportions were relatively low in all items. (3) Non-experience group for fluoride mouthrinse indicated significant higher proportion of selected 3 items (motivation, tooth brushing instruction, tooth brushing after lunch) compared to that of experience group, as to those who received dental health education and care at primary school. This result may be attributed to extremely lower difference between the two groups in relation to dental health behavior.
