ABSTRACT

AIM- To compare the Perceptions of parents of Oral Health Related Quality of life in Children with and without Esthetic Restoration affected with Early Childhood Caries. Material And Method: It was an intervention study which showed how ECC and its treatment can affect Oral-Health Related Quality of life in children. It consisted of 120 child-Parent (Either Mother or Father) pairs. Children with ECC and their parents(mother/ father) participated in face-to-face interviews before dental treatment was started. One of the parents of the children was invited to respond to questionnaires of OHRQoL of the child (ECOHIS). Interviews were carried out orally by interviewer in language understood by the parents. Children with ECC then participated in full-mouth rehabilitation in several appointments under local anaesthesia with or without nitrous oxide sedation. 2 months after the completion of treatment, children with ECC and their parents returned for a follow-up face-to-face interview. Wilcoxon rank-sum test were used to compare total OHRQoL and individual domain scores by gender, socioeconomic status and educational status. Mann-witney test were used to compare the difference. Results: Highly significant difference was obtained when comparing the overall esthetic and domain specific score of pre treatment and post treatment questionnaire in characteristic of child(male and female), sociodemographic criteria (High and low educational and socioeconomic status) (p=0.000). Conclusion: Early childhood caries effects the children oral health related quality of life, so early management and proper counselling about factors that causes ECC should be taken into consideration.
