Tihomir Georgiev, Radosveta Andreeva

Abstract

The premature extraction of primary teeth of children could be done both under local or under general anesthesia. Тhe choice of method depends on different factors. Dental treatment under GA is an effective way to provide dental necessary care to children with special needs, medically-compromised, cognitively immature, highly anxious. The aim of this study is to compare the average age and the average DMFT index of the children with premature extraction of primary teeth treated under local and under general anesthesia. Subject of monitoring of the research were 60 children. The clinical group consists of 30 children with teeth for premature extraction under general anesthesia and the control group consists of 30 children for premature extraction under local anesthesia. The dental status was examined and registered by DMFT index. The age of the children was filled in a special registered cards. There was a statistically significant difference in the age and DMFT index between the first group (4,67 0,26.average age) and second group (4,67 0,26 average age ). DMFT index for the first (clinic) l group is 7,18 0,66 and - 5,17 0,33 for the second (control) group. The results show the connection between the carious activity and the need of prevention of the younger children.
