Abstract

Introduction: Hemophilic patients need special care and attention in dentistry. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the oral and dental health of hemophilic patients in Khorasan Province in 2003. Materials & Methods: This descriptive analytical study was performed on 42 hemophilic patients (7-34 years old) in Khorasan Hemophilia Center in 2003 during the past six months. Demographic characteristics and a history of coagulation problems and the related treatments were filled for patients. DMFT and modified gingival index (MGI) were recorded for them. Data were analyzed using Mann Whitney, Fisher’s exact and Kruskal Wallis tests. Results: Common age for the first manifestations was between 6-12 months (81%). Familial involvement was reported in 47.6% of patients. The most common dental problem was bleeding during eruption or exfoliation of deciduous teeth (31%). Viral infection with HBV or HCV was reported in 40% of cases. DMFT Index significantly increased by age in this study (6.2±2.5 in 7-12 year old and 13.1±3.2 in ≥25 year old patients). DMFT index was over 10 in 42% of patients. MGI index had a significant increase by age (P=0.01). 66.7% of 25 year and above patients had third grade gingival inflammation. Conclusion: Regarding the unsatisfactory oral health status in these patients, dental health care and prevention seems necessary and can be effective in prevention of dental problems and the consequent bleedings and the complex treatments. Key words: Hemophilia, MGI index, DMFT index
