Awareness among Pregnant Patients about Endodontic Treatment

Teertha Shetty, Kimaya Havle

Pregnancy is a major event in a womans life. It is a time where the human female body undergoes many physical, psychological and physiological changes. With continuous fluctuations in the hormone levels the body is under constant changes. As we know the oral cavity is the mirror and one of the first mediums which reflects the alterations taking place. The pregnant mother is more susceptible to diseases of the oral cavity in such a condition, special care must be taken to away from any infection which may affect the health of the mother and the developing foetus. As pregnancy is a delicate phase the patients are usually apprehensive of undergoing any sort of treatment not directly related to the pregnancy. Thus it is of utmost importance to first understand the views of the patients regarding pregnant patients regarding oral health care during pregnancy. The aim of this study was to help in evaluating the behaviour, attitude and knowledge among pregnant patients about endodontic treatment and interpret the degree of awareness. A thorough knowledge of the views of pregnant patients regarding oral healthcare and treatments will help is assessing the need to bring about awareness among population and clear misconceptions associated with it. Oral and dental problems have a higher prevalence but are also easily preventable. Awareness among the population give better opportunities to provide healthcare facilities which will potentially reduce the complications faced by gestating mothers. A survey was conducted in the outpatient department for the Department of Gynaecology of Krishna Institute of Medical sciences to evaluate the degree of awareness among the population and the results were analysed.
