Abstract :

Introduction: Brushing teeth is one of the effective ways to clean the teeth from leftover food and dirt.  Yet, children still have lack ability on brushing their teeth and maintaining oral hygiene. This is caused by the lack of knowledge in brushing their teeth and maintaining oral hygiene.  One of the ways to increase the ability to brush the teeth and maintain oral hygiene by giving health education using simulation method. Bass modification technique was proven to be effective to maintainance oral hygiene. Nevertheless, it was not yet conducted in research design using simulation to children. There for objective of this research was to explore the effect of health education regarding tooth brush simulation method using bass modification technique on school children. Method: The research used a pre-experimental design.  The samples were 29 children and they were taken using a simple random technique.  The dependent variable was simulation method while the independent variables were tooth brushing and oral hygiene.  Data collection used checklist system and observation. Data analysis used wilcoxon signed rank test. Result: The results showed that tooth brushing ability (ρ=0.000), debris index (ρ=0.000), and oral hygiene OHIS (ρ=0.002) had significant influence on simulation method.  Calculus index (ρ=0.458) showed that there was no significant influence on simulation method. Discussion: The conclusion was that simulation method was effective to increase tooth brushing ability and oral hygiene maintenance on school children.  The next researcher is expected to apply true experimental design of health education to assess the ability to brush the teeth and to maintain oral hygiene.
