Abstract

A simple estimation of the proportion of the partial edentulous persons is a rough indication of dental diseases and also the success or failure of dental care. The epidemiological features of partial edentulousness of one community or one village can be evaluated on the basis of a cross-sectional houseto-house survey. In this study a cross-sectional house-to-house survey was carried out at lower Garhwal region of Uttarakhand, India. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of the level of edentulism and its relevance to other co-factors such as age, gender and socioeconomic status.

Keywords: Partially edentulism, Socioeconomic status, Kennedy’s classes, Survey, Garhwal.
