Description:
The purpose of this Survey was to ascertain whether there were significant differences in dental condition amongst school children living in different areas of the country and whether such differences, if they existed, could be related to differences in the dietary intake of the children. Differences in the dental condition of different groups of school children in the Channel Islands had been noted by ICnowles (I946) and by Bransby and Knowles (I949), who concluded that these depended on basic differences of dietary intake amongst the different groups of children. The Reports on the Irish National Nutrition Survey, issued between I949 and I953, gave a comprehensive picture of dietary habits in this Country, and revealed differences in the levels of food intake between the various areas investigated. The work in the Channel. Islands had seemed to show that during occupation and severe rationing, the teeth of resident children were in better condition than those of children who were evacuated to England and who were receiving a more varied and usual diet. It was, therefore, decided to carry out an investigation amongst school children in Ireland to determine the extent of dental caries, and whether signiflcant differences in dental condition were to be found between the four areas in the country for which relevant dietary data were available from the Report of the National Nutrition Survey.
