Abstract


Dentists, in their practice, are exposed to work-related vibrations daily. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs due to overuse of the hand while using vibratory equipment such as sizing and turbines. It handles slow speeds, gripping and working with tools or other small objects such as endodontic files. This cross-sectional study aims to measure the prevalence of carpal tunnel syndrome among dental students and dental assistants, and we have received 209 responses from dental colleges in Saudi Arabia.

Keywords: Carpal tunnel syndrome, Dental students, Numbness, Pain, Tingling Sensation.
