Sažetak
The aim of the present study was to assess the influence of dental anxiety on children's dental status, and to determine
degree of association between mother's anxiety and child's dental anxiety. The study was performed in a sample of 138
pairs of mothers and their children aged 11-12 years. Corah's Dental Anxiety Scale (CDAS) was used to assess degree of
anxiety in children and their mothers. DMFT scores, as a measure of dental health, were collected for all children under
study. Spearman's rank correlation coefficients (r) were computed to compare degree of association between analysed
parameters. The patients were classified in the following groups: 1. low dental anxiety (CDAS = 4-8; N=53), 2. moderate
dental anxiety (CDAS = 9-12; N = 45), and 3. high dental anxiety (CDAS = 13-20; N = 40). All children were divided into
four groups on the basis of DMFT: caries-free children: DMFT = 0; low caries intensity: DMFT = 1-2; moderate caries
intensity: DMFT = 3-4; and high caries intensity: DMFT = 5-10. Children's CDAS score showed significant correlation
with DMFT score (r=.3198; P<0.001) and mother's CDAS (r=.3886; P<0.001). Children with high caries intensity displayed
significantly higher mean CDAS score (11.81) than caries free children (7.77) (t = 3.63; P < 0.001). The results showed that
dental anxiety in children is related to their mother's dental anxiety (r = 0.388, P < 0.001). Highly anxious children display
significantly higher DMFT score than children with low anxiety (t = 3.69, P < 0.001). The results show significant association
between child’s dental anxiety and dental health. Children with high dental anxiety display significantly higher
caries intensity. Mother’s dental anxiety shows significant association with child’s dental anxiety, but not with child’s
dental health.
