About

Dental caries, a widespread oral health issue, results from a complex interplay of factors including behavior, hygiene, diet, and socio-demographic aspects. While preventive measures are available, it remains prevalent globally, affecting numerous teeth per individual. Improved oral hygiene practices and increased awareness have led to a reduction in caries prevalence. However, rising sugar consumption exceeds dietary guidelines, contributing to the problem. Despite limited epidemiological studies in Egypt, addressing individual-level factors is crucial. Surveillance of oral health in the early middle age group is standard, allowing decision-makers to assess the impact of caries and oral health care provision. Stratifying data by age, geography, and gender aids in understanding prevalence and planning effective prevention strategies. Overall, promoting awareness of dietary habits and preventive practices is vital for improving oral health outcome So, The purpose of this study is to assess the prevalence of dental caries among early middle age patients attending dental hospital in Faculty of Dentistry, Cairo university and to analyze the related risk factors utilizing WHO Oral Health Questionnaire for Adults.
