  • Background: The aim of this study was to provide insight on dental fear amongst schoolchildren and evaluate the association between caries experience and fear of dental procedures. Methods: A sample size of 250 students (both sexes) of ages 10-14 years were enrolled in the study. Before dental examination, each participant was informed about the study and given the Children's Fear Survey Schedule - Dental Subscale (CFSS-DS) questionnaire. Children who scored greater than 38 were included in the 'with dental fear' group and those who scored less than 38 were assigned to the 'without dental fear' group. All oral check-ups were carried out on the school premises according to WHO criteria. Results: There were 105 children (42%) who experienced dental fear. As CFSS-DS scores increased, scores on the Decayed, Missing and Filled Surfaces Index (DMFS) also increased. Scores were highest on "injections" followed by "dentist drill" and "feeling of choking". Children were significantly less anxious about items of dental treatment if they had experienced that particular form of treatment. Female participants were found to be more dentally anxious than the male participants. Conclusions: The data revealed dental fear in 10-14 years old children and showed that dental fear scores decreased with increase in age and experience.

  • Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD), which is accepted as an autosomal disorder, is a generalized disorder of bone with severe dental abnormalities. Among the most characteristic anomalies seen are hypoplasia of clavicles or aplasia of clavicles, permanant non-ossification of cranial sutures & fontanels, delayed eruption of the permanant dentition & the presence of unerupted supernumerary teeth. CCD may first be noted by dentist because of many dental problems, so we should diagnose the disorder earlier & understand the development of dentition in CCD to ensure timely intervention with proper periodic dental X-ray.
