A door to door survey on oro-dental disorders was carried out in four villages of the field practice area of Rural Health Training Centre, Naila (Jaipur), covering a population of 1384 in the age group of 6 years and above. A total of 81 (5.85 per cent) of the examined population had malocclusion, and its relationship with age was found to be significant (P less than 0.01). A highly significant (P less than 0.001) increase was observed in oral-mucosal and dental disorder with advance in age. Among the dental disorders, dental caries was most common, affecting 15.32 per cent of the total population followed by fluorosis (1.66 per cent), attrition of teeth (0.94) per cent) and supernumerary (0.58 per cent). A statistically highly significant (p less than 0.001) difference was observed in prevalence of attrition, dental fluorosis and caries with age. The facts accumulated during the survey bring out vividly the need to apply the growing knowledge on orodental health. The need is not only for treatment, but also prevention and education about oral hygiene.
