ABSTRACT:
AIM: The aim of survey is to check the level of awareness among the teenagers. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this survey is to raise questions among the teenagers about Dental awareness. BACKGROUND: There are many basic things to be known by teenagers about dental health. Dental awareness is needed for the assessment of dental health needs and improving the dental health of the population rather than individuals. Many teenagers are prone to tooth decay, plaque etc. The four main components of good oral health maintenance is brushing teeth twice daily, flossing every day, rinsing with mouthwash and chewing sugar free gums. Other aspects are seeing your dentist or dental hygienist for regular checkups and cleanings and eating a mouth healthy diet, which means foods high in whole grains, vegetables and fruits, and dairy products. METHOD: Conducting a survey by questioning the teenagers about dental care and awareness. REASON: Since there is less awareness about dental health among the teenagers, questionnaire is conducted among this population for their benefit.
