Masalah Karies Gigi Dengan Kualitas Hidup Pada Anak Sekolah Usia 5-7 TAHUN
AbstractDental caries suffered in school-age children can cause disruption in quality of life and disruption of daily activities due to the inability of the mastication process. The incidence of primary dental caries in children reaches 80% with a mean def-t 5.0 which in turn results in many cavities for children under 12 years old (reaching 89%). While WHO announced the target of achieving dental health services in 2010 amounting to 90% of caries-free for children aged 5 years. This study aims to analyze the relationship between the index of dental caries in children aged 5-7 years with the quality of life of the child. Where the simple random Lemeshow method is used as a sampling technique. The study was conducted using an observational analytic method based on correlation techniques conducted on 138 samples of school children. Correlation test results using the value α = 0.05 showed an opposite correlation between the index of dental caries and the quality of life of school children. Where the index which is the material for the correlation test gives a significant relationship (p <0.05) to the variables tested. Conclusion The lower the dental caries index, the higher the quality of life of school children. Keywords: dental caries, def-t index, quality of life, ECOHIS.
