Abstract

This case control study was conducted to assess the prevalence and severity of dental erosion and to determine the potential risk factors for dental erosion among dental students. The total sample size for the study was 327, of which the students were taken from first year to intern. Dental erosion was estimated using the index of Basic Erosive Wear Examination (BEWE). A questionnaire was designed to record information about demographic characteristics, oral hygiene practices, and risk factors for dental erosion. Chi square test, bivariate analysis and Logistic regression analysis were performed to analyse the data.Carbonated drink significantly (p=0.038) contributed to dental erosion by 1.106 times than who doesn’t drink carbonated drink. Other factors doesn’t significantly contribute to the dental erosion statistically. The outcome of the study shows that there is an increased risk of dental erosion associated with the consumption of carbonated drinks among the dental students.
