Aim: Fluorosis, brought about by ingestion of unreasonable measure of fluoride through food or water, is a significant general medical condition in Pakistan. This investigation attempted to measure the dental fluorosis trouble among school going young people and to discover factors related with dental fluorosis in Lahore, Pakistan. Methods: 1,045 high school adolescents (13-19 years old) enrolled in different schools selected according to a delineated testing technique. A dental assessment conducted to record the dean's fluorosis list and information on social segment, food use and oral cleanliness recorded using an organized and pre-tested survey. Our current research conducted at Mayo Hospital, Lahore from May 2019 to April 2020. Fluorine content estimated using an Orion mechanical assembly, and the community fluorosis index was determined from tests of drinking water from different sources. A multivariate survey with a recurrence model used to study the components related to dental fluorosis. Result: Among the 1045 selected liners, 66.5% of the youth found to have dental fluorosis; more than half of them had severe or moderate fluorosis, as indicated by the Dean's Fluorosis Index and the Community Fluorosis Index. Most of the influenced understudies were from public schools. Variables related to dental fluorosis have lived in the study area for more than 6 years and are concentrated in public schools. A strong positive relationship between the measurement of fluoride content in the drinking water collected and the dental fluorosis index was found (rho = 0.572). Conclusion: Prevalence of dental fluorosis was extensively high, influencing almost 66% of the understudies, and predominantly in government schools and long haul inhabitants of the region. Wellbeing schooling and network mindfulness for forestalling fluorosis, aside from setting-up fluoridation plants or preparing for locally established fluoridation methods in study towns, ought to be thought of.
