Mehwash Kashif, Khalid Mehmood, Tahera Ayub, Mehmil Aslam.

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to find the reasons of tooth extraction in permanent
dentition and to identify the patterns of tooth extraction among karachiates.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study was carried out in the department of oral and maxillofacial
surgery (OMFS), in tertiary care hospitals of Karachi from October 2013 to March 2014. In
this cross sectional study total 6251 patients were selected through non-probability convenience
sampling and data was collected by trained clinician using predesigned questionnaire

was computed on SPSS. Version 19.00.
RESULTS: According to the result analysis on SPSS version 19.0, the male to female percentage
was 43.25% and 56.74% respectively and the highest number of extractions was observed
at the age of 50 years i.e. 6.24%.The percentage of reasons of extraction of teeth in our population
is as follows, the grossly carious teeth are 51.8%, Periodontal problem 19.2%, Impaction
2.9%, RCT failure 2.8%, Economics 0.9%, Root caries 6.8%, Orthodontics 2.9%, Prosthodontics
0.1%, Fracture 1.3% , Malopposed 0.7%, Supernumerary teeth 0.9%, tooth In the fracture line
0.1%, Aesthetics, Pathological fracture, Preradiation 0.0%.
CONCLUSION: It was concluded from the above study that dental caries, is the most common
