Resumen

GODOY-FLORES, Francisca  y  LEE-MUNOZ, Ximena. Knowledge, behaviors and motives in preventive methods for ororeceptive sexual practices in dentistry students. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.1, pp.23-26. ISSN 0719-0107.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-01072019000100023.

Dentistry is in search of more inclusive points of view, one of them related to sexuality. Sexual education has had little curricular representation in Dentistry, being approached more from a curative point of view rather than a preventive one. This study evaluated the degree of knowledge, conduct and motives related to preventive methods and the risk associated with oral sex practices among dental students of a Chilean university.

Materials and methods:

This quantitative, transversal and analytical study used an anonymous and self-applied survey on 50 voluntary students. The instrument inquired about conditions related to sexual health, specifically oral sex practices. Statistical data was analyzed using softwares such as SPSS v20 and Excel.

Results:

In terms of knowledge about preventive methods for oral sex practices, aside from condoms, other barriers where little known (13%); 90% reported having practiced oral sex once, and among these, 78% didn’t use protection barriers. Of those who reported having used a barrier, 100% used condoms.

Conclusions:

Knowledge, conducts and motives in sexual health report a deficient knowledge of preventive methods for oral sex practices and their associated risk.
