AUTHOR(S): Dr. Jyoti Awahan, Dr. Manjunath Madhav and Dr Madhukar Awahan
ABSTRACT:Introduction: Crossbite is a serious orthodontic disparity that affects many people throughout the world. Malocclusion is considered a major public health hazard. Because of the disruptions in dental health and dentofacial aesthetics, this may have an impact on one's quality of life.
Methods: From July 2021 to February 2022, a retrospective study was undertaken in a Dental College to determine the prevalence and associated factors for crossbite malocclusion in the North Indian population. The case records of patients who reported to the Dental Hospital for orthodontic treatment were used to select sample sizes of 510 people. The data variables were tabulated and analyzed using SPSS Version 20. They included socio-demographic information, the existence of crossbite, the location of crossbite, and the presence of class II malocclusion. Chi-Square tests and descriptive statistics were used.
Results: There were 30 records with crossbite in total. The age range of the patients was 9-51 years with a mean age of 25 years. Posterior crossbite (66.7%) was common followed by anterior crossbite (33.3%).In comparison to anterior crossbite, posterior crossbite was more common in males (61.11%) and females (75%).
Conclusion: The results can be used as a starting point for arranging orthodontic services, but they are not typical of the entire population.
