We analyzed emergency cases in order to define the reasons for patient admittance age group and gender, the periods of more frequent arrivals for certain diseases and correlation of particular diseases with age groups. The investigation included 2.766 emergency cases, examined in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery during the period from 1 January to 31 December 1998. We took into consideration the following parameters: gender, age, day, month, the reason for admission and the need for urgent hospitalization. Of the 2.766 patients 58,10 % were men, most frequently aged from 16 to 30 years. Saturday and Sunday are the days and May the mounth with the greatest number
of emergency cases. The greatest number of dental trauma occur in
patients yunger than 15 years and the greatest number of bone fractures occur in May. Odontogenic inflammation is most frequent from 16 to 30 years and their occurrence cannot be ralated to any specific time of the year. Odontogenic inflammation which is not a true surgical case according to the clinical appearance is the most common reason for admittance of patients. With regard to the aforementioned, the need for improvement of medical education of patients and general dental services in terms of prevention is required.
