To determine the clinical performance of primary molar restorations placed by the IIUM undergraduate dental student among paediatric patients attending the Polyclinic, Kulliyyah of Dentistry, IIUM. Thirty-two patients, aged 5 to 12 year-old, who had primary molar restorations placed by undergraduate dental students from January 2011 to December 2013 were reviewed. A total of 99 primary molars restorations were evaluated clinically using modified United States Public Health Service criteria for clinical performance of dental restorations. The O’Leary plaque score was used to assess the oral hygiene of the patient. The data was analyzed using the Kaplan-Meier and Cox regression with SPSS software for Windows version 16.0. Amalgam restorations (104 weeks) showed highest survival time followed by glass ionomer cement (GIC) (87 weeks) and composite (84 weeks). GIC showed highest survival time for class I (mean=118.74, 95% CI 97.15-140.28) but for class II, amalgam showed highest survival time (mean=89.39, 95% CI 70.76-108.01). However, there were no statistically significant differences found for all types of materials (p=0.440). Patients with poor oral hygiene has 2.6 times more likelihood to have hazard of failed restorations as compared to those with moderate and good oral hygiene (p=0.024). The result showed that the type of material and oral hygiene influence the survival rate of primary molar restorations. Amalgam presenting the best performance followed by composite and GIC. The longevity of restorations was reduced in paediatric patients with poor oral hygiene.
