2019-10-14 10:28:46 | BioPortfolio


Neglect insidiously affects a child's overall health in all aspects. The aim of this study was to determine whether the presence of siblings caused dental neglect, and whether there was a relationship between dental neglect and anxiety.


Dental neglect is an intentional failure of parents or caregivers to take precautions and fulfil necessary dental treatment, and has a close relationship with dental caries and anxiety. Oral health status of the children was evaluated using the DMFT/dmft, PUFA/pufa, and OHI-S indices. In addition, the parents completed the Dental Neglect Scale (DNS) and a questionnaire, and the Modified Child Dental Anxiety Scale (MCDASf) was administered to the children to assess their dental anxiety.
