A. Sandhya, Dr. Dhanaraj, Dr. Sangeetha

AIM The aim of the research is to assess and evaluate the rinsing habits in young adult populations. OBJECTIVE This study is set out to evaluate the rinsing habits in young adult population. MATERIALS AND METHOD A cross sectional survey was carried to assess the mouth rinsing habits of young adults between 18-30 in chennai city population. A self assessed questionnaire was formulated with 13 questions and distributed to 100 participants. We obtained data and analysed statistically. BACKGROUND The oral health of individual patients is the result of the interplay between a number of dental behaviours including dental office attendance, dietary habits and oral hygiene practices. Brushing and flossing alone cannot help to maintain proper oral hygiene without the support of mouth rinsing habits. The aim of this project is to assess the mouth rinsing habits of young adults between 18-30 in chennai city population. Result On analysing the above data, 38 % of participants brush twice a day and 37 % of them rinse after every meal, and 82 % of them prefer to rinse their mouth with chemical rinsers apart from herbal and semi synthetic rinsers.60 % of them rinse their mouth for 30 secs and 51 % prefer rinsing in order to prevent caries attack. CONCLUSION This study concluded knowledge and awareness among the studied population is inadequate. Hence, oral health educational program needs to be initiated to address this concern.
