AIM: To evaluate the chair position followed during tooth extractions by the undergraduate students of Saveetha Dental College.
OBJECTIVE: To observe the chair position followed during tooth extraction by the undergraduate students.
To compare and contrast whether the standard chair position is being followed.
BACKGROUND: Chair positions of both the operator and patient have a pivotal role in determining the success of an extraction. Correct chair positions helps to avoid musculoskeletal problems to the operator. Proper chair positioning permits a clear access of the teeth being extracted and allows easy instrumentation. This study aims in observing the chair positions followed during tooth extractions performed by undergraduate students and evaluates whether the correct position is being followed.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: This an observational study. Extractions performed by dental undergraduate students are observed for the chair positions. After collection of data statistical analyses are carried out.
REASON: The main reason for the study to be conducted is to find the extent to which the chair positions are being followed in clinical practice.
