Management of flabby ridges – Cognizance among dental interns
Background: Management of flabby ridge differs from patients to patient. It depends on patient’s health and prognosis. Intern’s knowledge about treating flabby ridge patients is analysed in this study. The main aim of this study is to establish intern’s view regarding the management of flabby ridges.
Aim: To determine the knowledge of dental interns regarding the management of flabby ridge.
Materials and methods: A set of 10 questions is prepared and data is collected among 100 dental interns. The data collected is analysed and the report is made statistically.
Result: In this study 100 dental interns have participated around the age of 22 to 25. The results conclude that 50 % to 60% of interns are aware in diagnosing and treating flabby ridge patients whereas rest of them are not aware of it.
Conclusion: Thus majority of dental interns agree that surgical or implant retained prosthesis gives more stability and retention in comparison to conventional prosthesis.
