Incidence of root canal treatment in anterior teeth and its association with the gender-A retrospective study

Introduction: Root canal therapy is an efficacious therapeutic strategy to retain teeth with irreversible pulpal damage. Root canal treatment ensures that teeth with irreversible pulpal damage retain their functional role in the oral cavity. Hence the aim of the study is to determine the incidence of root canal treatment in anterior teeth and its association with the gender. Materials and method: The data of patients reporting to Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals was reviewed and patients with endodontically treated teeth were selected for the study. It included parameters like age, gender, and endodontically treated teeth type. Chi square tests were carried out using gender as independent variables and endodontically treated teeth number as dependent variable. The statistical analysis was done by Pearson chi square test. P value < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: Majority (56%) of patients was between the age group of 26-50 years, and males (53%) had a slight predominance over females (47%). The most common anterior teeth to undergo root canal treatment were maxillary central incisors which accounted for approximately 34% of the RCTs among both genders. The Chi square test value was found to be statistically significant (0.001). Conclusion: Majority of the patients undergoing anterior root canal treatment were males, and maxillary central incisors were the most common anterior teeth to undergo root canal treatment among both the genders.
