Abstract

Aim: Rehabilitation of tooth losses with fixed prosthesis applications is still a highly preferred option today. Teeth are the most important components for chewing function, proper phonation, and aesthetics. The aim of the study is to examine the relationship between tooth loss and fixed prosthetic restorations in patients of different age groups and genders.


Methodology: In this study, a total of 300 patients were studied to examine the relationship between tooth deficiencies and the number of fixed restorations applied with gender and age. These patients were divided into two gender groups, male and female, and six age groups, with n = 25 in each group. Fixed prosthetic restorations in the missing teeth and mouths of the patients were recorded on dental panoramic radiographs. Statistical analysis was conducted with the one-way ANOVA test.


Results: Tooth loss and the number of prosthetic applications increased statistically with age, but no statistical difference was found with gender. The Independent samples t-test analysis of variances was used in this study (p < 0.05).


Conclusion: Tooth loss increases in patients with age due to many factors. This problem should be prevented by popularizing preventive dental practices. Female patients with poor dental hygiene and tooth loss associated with hormonal changes in specific age ranges have increased.
