Kariogram dan Peranannya dalam Meramalkan Kemungkinan Terjadinya Karies

Safrida Hoesin

Abstract


Cariogram is an instrument which was prepared to estimate caries occurrence among the 18 years old (Branthall et al. 1996). In the Cariogram, parameters of caries interation were consist of diet, susceptible tooth, bacteria and circumstances. However, some of the points in parameters such as colony count and topical fluoride or water fluoridation were not widely known in Indonesia. The aim of this report is to modify a Cariogram for the 12 year old children based on an epidemiological observation which subjects were selected in a randomized stratified sampling. The data were analysed in a multiple logistic regression technique. As a result of the study revealed that new parameters of a modified Cariogram model were slightly different from the original: however, it could be introduced as a model of caries reduction to support the national promotive and preventice program.
