Most dental and oral health problems are caused by the presence of plaque. Plaque is a soft deposit that sticks to the tooth surface. The prevalence rate of dental plaque in Indonesia is relatively high, reaching 70-80%. There are several methods used in plaque control, one of which is chemical (gargling). Gargling using an antibacterial liquid can kill bacteria attached to the surface of the teeth. The Indonesian government supports the use of traditional mouthwashes as an alternative, one of which is the red ginger plant. Red ginger contains very high levels of essential oils and oleoresin making it suitable for pharmaceutical ingredients. Purpose: the aim of this study was to analyze the traditional ingredient (red ginger) to reduce plaque index. Methods: The type of research used in this study was experimental. With a one group pretest-posttest design. The analysis results of the Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test showed that there was a significant difference between plaque before and after rinsing red ginger boiled water 0.001 (Sig. &lt;0.05). Shows that the average of 60 respondents before rinsing red ginger boiled water was 2,505, while after rinsing red ginger boiled water was 1,525, there was a decrease with the difference before and after 980. Conclusion: there was an effect of gargling red ginger boiled water on reducing plaque index.</p> 2023-10-19T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Desi Andriyani, Lies Elina Prasetiowati https://ejournal.poltekkesjakarta1.ac.id/index.php/JKG/article/view/1295 THE EFFECT OF CARTOON SCREENING DISTRACTION TECHNIQUES ON THE ANXIETY LEVEL OF PEDIATRIC PATIENTS IN DENTAL AND ORAL HEALTH SERVICES 2023-09-19T08:47:29+07:00 Culia Rahayu rahayuculia67@gmail.com Tineu Novianty Senjaya tineu011185@gmail.com Hadiyat Miko hmiko@yahoo.com <p>There are many pediatric patients who visit the Cibogo Health Center to get dental health services, but when dental services are about to be carried out, many children feel anxious and afraid when they will have their teeth examined, therefore it is important to divert attention to children to reduce excessive anxiety during dental and oral health services.

The horizontal technique is a technique that is widely used when brushing teeth. The roll technique is often recommended because it is simple and efficient, while the fone's technique is a proven technique suitable for children because it is easy to do. The purpose of the study was to analyze the hygiene index of brushing teeth with horizontal method, roll and fone's method in children aged 9-12 years. This type of research is an quasi-experimental research with pre-test and post-test designs. There search was carried out by treating respondents and checking the n hygiene index before and after brushing teeth with the horizontal method and the fone's method. The study sample amounted to 45 people with three treatments. The data were analyzed by t-test. The results of the study with paired t-test ? value (0.00&lt;0.05) mean that there is a significant difference between before and after brushing teeth with horizontal, roll and fone's techniques. The average surface of these cleaned teeth is no more than 75% of the tooth surface. The horizontal method averages 51.55%, roll 72.57% and fone's 70.05%. Judging from the increase in hygiene index score, the highest horizontal method increased hygiene index by 34.5%. There is no difference in hygiene index after brushing teeth with horizontal roll and fone's methods. It is recommended to respondents to brush their teeth at least twice in the morning before eating and at night before going to bed with brushing techniques that have been taught, especially fone's. For further researchers, it is recommended to examine the hygiene index with other brushing methods in order to see more effective methods in cleaning all tooth surfaces.</p> 2023-10-19T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Yustina Sriani https://ejournal.poltekkesjakarta1.ac.id/index.php/JKG/article/view/1276 ORAL DETECT-TRI TO IMPROVE DENTAL AND ORAL DISEASES DETECTION BEHAVIOUR IN HOUSWIVES 2023-09-26T08:44:24+07:00 Astri Ramdhani astriramdhani03@gmail.com Diyah Fatmasari diyahfatmasari@poltekkessmg.ac.id Masrifan Djamil masrifan@poltekkessmg.ac.id <p>Background Riskesdas 2018 state that the largest proportion of dental problems in Indonesia are damaged/cavities/sick teeth (45.3%).
