Radiological Investigation of DMFT Index and Treatment Requirements of Patients Presenting to the Outpatient Clinic

Dt. Ali ALTINDAG DDS

Aim: The aim of this study was to radiographically evaluate caries, filled, missing and teeth of 1056 adult patients admitted to the clinic and to determine their treatment needs. Materials and Methods: Patients were grouped according to gender (female and male) and age (20-29, 30-39, 40-49 and 50+). Panoramic and conventional bite-wing radiographs were evaluated. The radiographs were evaluated in 3 areas as caries, filled and missing teeth. Results: A significant relationship was found between the age groups and treatment needs of the individuals. As the age group increased, treatment requirements increased. The maximum number of decayed teeth was observed in the 30-39 age group, while the number of filled teeth was observed in the 40-49 age group. Male patients had more treatment needs than female patients. Conclusion: In this study conducted on adult patients admitted to the clinic, oral hygiene was found to be well below the required standards in all age groups.
