Abstract

Background: The age at, type and number of the teeth eruption of primary dentition has been linked to
a variety of environmental variables. The studies on possible socioeconomic factor as a variable for the
primary dentition of neonates is still limited in the literature. The purpose of the study was to determine
the primary dentition of neonates in Ganjam district, Odisha, India, in relation to socioeconomic level
of their families.
Method: From the moment a child was born until he or she became two-year-old, primary dentition
information such as time, type, and patterns were documented. Also, before to conception, information
on the mother’s socioeconomic factors were gathered and statistical analysis were carried out.
Conclusion: The findings support the previous evidence of environmental influences on the time
of primary dentition eruption by demonstrating that maternal socioeconomic status has a significant
impact on primary dentition. For the research region, the socioeconomic status of the family has the
least impact on the number of teeth at first eruption.
