Putranti, D., Chandra, H. 2011. Rendahnya persepsi masyarakat terhadap pemakaian gigitiruan di Desa Ujung Rambung, Kecamatan Pantai Cermin, Kabupaten Serdang Bedagai Minor perception of denture wear’s at Ujung Rambung Village, Pantai Cermin Subdistrict, Serdang Bedagai Regency. Journal of Dentomaxillofacial Science 10(2): 79-85.


Individual perceptions towards denture wear’s are different from one to another, which are affected by number and
location of missing teeth, age, sex, functional factors, esthetic, cultural factors, socioeconomy and education. The
purpose of this study is to analyze the perceptions towards denture replacement among a rural community who
experienced tooth loss based on age groups, sex and education in Desa Ujung Rambung Kecamatan Pantai Cermin
Kabupaten Serdang Bedagai in February 2010. This study was an analytical observatory study. Samples are 200
subjects who lost at least one tooth, excluding third molar. Chi-square test shows no significant difference between
perceptions of appearance, mastication and speech and age groups, no significant difference between perceptions of
appearance, mastication and speech and sex, and no significant difference between perceptions of mastication and
speech and education (p>0,05), but shows statistically significant difference between perception of appearance and
education (p=0,004). It can be concluded that the overall perceptions of the rural community is poor.
