ABSTRACT

Objectives : The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible differences in elementary schools jointed to fluoride mouth rinse plans in health centers. Methods : Students from the third to sixth grades filled out the questionnaires. Data were analyzed by the statistical package SPSS 12.0. Results : The rate of a personal toothbrush holding and toothbrushing after lunch were higher in those who rinsed their mouths with fluoride than those who did not.(p<0.05). Toothbrushing by the rolling method was more prevailing in the students who rinsed their mouths with fluoride(57.0%) and having regular dental checkup(p<0.05) than in those who did not(39.8%). Conclusions : The students who had rinsed their mouths with fluoride showed the good oral health behavior. Continuing good quality of oral health care education must be provided to the students by professional dental hygienists.
