Abstract

There were examined 300 first-year/third-year students of the Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University at the age of 17 to 20 years residing in Ivano-Frankivsk and the regions with low fluoride levels. Clinical examination included their medical history and oral cavity examination using a dental probe and a detection device - the DIAGNOdent. The dependency between the prevalence of tooth decay and the region of residency was found. Initial and superficial dental caries was detected in most students despite the place of residence. Moderate and advanced dental caries predominated in students residing in the regions with low levels of fluoride. Fissure caries was detected most often. The patterns of dental caries prevalence indicate the need for development and implementation of preventive and therapeutic measures to prevent complications.
