A specific study has been undertaken on the inmates of the central prison Belgaum (Karnataka) to assess their oral health status of treatment requirements. In total 630 male inmates have been examined with WHO Performa. In general it has been found that most percentage of people had bad oral hygiene, added with high percentage of dental decay. Many of them had various harmful tobacco habits which were causing sub mucous fibrosis added with severe attrition. Interestingly quite a good number of people had lower anterior crowding along with anterior fractured teeth. This phenomenon seems to be more than normal population when compared.
