Ilankizhai RJ, Jessy P, Madhulaxmi M.

Abstract
Malocclusion is a common oral disease mostly affecting children. The prevalence rate of which varies with numerous factors. Early implementation of interceptive orthodontics can prevent further complication and other expensive orthodontic treatment. The aim of the study is to evaluate the acceptance rate of interceptive orthodontic treatment in children with malocclusion. It is a university hospital setting study where the patient records were reviewed. About 1147 patients were identified in the age group 6-11 years with malocclusion who require interceptive orthodontic treatment.The parameters such as patient age,gender, acceptance towards treatment were gathered and the corresponding data was imported in excel spreadsheet and statistical analysis was performed. The results reported that there were 44.8% females and 55.2% males in the age group of 6-8 yrs and 43.5% females and 56.5% males in the age group 9-11 yrs . Only 8.63% of patients were willing to accept preventive and interceptive treatments. Patients in the 6-8 yrs age group were more willing to accept interceptive treatment than patients in the 9-11 yrs age group. This was found to be statistically significant.Within the limits of the present study, it can be concluded that 36.6 % of the children between 6-11 yrs requires interceptive orthodontic treatment among which only 8.63% were willing to accept which shows the existence of a lack of awareness.

Key words: Acceptance towards treatment, Children, Interceptive orthodontics, Prevention of future malocclusion, Treatment needs
