DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.187
Synopsis: 
This study estimated the prevalence of various oral health indicators among patients from a public university in Mexico. Roughly half of the subjects (54.5%) reported using any type of oral health service within the past 12 months. “Good/very good” oral health was reported by 38.1%. Functional dentition was observed on 44.5% and 8.2% were edentulous. The self-reported of tooth loss had a prevalence of 62.2%. Toothbrushing "two or more times per day" was reported by 76.4%.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To explain the objectives, methodology and basic results of a study of oral health in adults who demanded services from dental clinics at a public university in Mexico.

Indicators of Oral Hygiene and Preventive Dental Care as Variables Associated with the High Severity of Caries

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.072
Synopsis: 
Dental caries is a public health problem around the world. In this study, we show that the variables related to oral hygiene, both objective measurement (presence of dentobacterial plaque) and subjective measurement (self-report of tooth brushing frequency) are associated with high severity of dental caries.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To identify if the presence of dental plaque, dental brushing frequency and preventive dental care are related to the high severity of dental caries.

Treatment Needs for Dental Caries and Restorative Care Index on the Permanent Dentition of Nicaraguan Children

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.330
Synopsis: 
Oral health studies in Nicaragua are sparse. We determined the patterns of treatment needs for dental caries and restorative care index on the permanent dentition of Nicaraguan children. High treatment needs for dental caries and little experience of restorative care was observed. The indices were moderated by socio-economic variables.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the treatment needs for dental caries and the restorative care index on permanent dentition of Nicaraguan children.

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.242
Pages: 
354–8
Synopsis: 
Third molar surgery constitutes a large percentage of daily work for dentists both in public and private practice. In this study, the authors observed that women and patients 18 to 34 years of age had erupted third molars extracted more frequently, primarily for prosthetic reasons.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the reasons for which erupted third molars (3M) are extracted in a sample of Mexican patients.

Socio-behavioral Factors Associated to Caries Prevalence and DMFT Index in Adolescents and Young Adults in a Developing Country

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.515
Synopsis: 
In Mexico, dental caries is a public dental problem. In this study, the authors realized two different models (Logistic and negative binomial regression) and observed diverse variables associated with caries. Results proved the existence of certain socioeconomic inequalities in oral health.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the factors associated with the prevalence of dental caries and decayed, missing, and filled teeth index (DMFT) in adolescents and young adults using logistic and negative binomial regression.

In Mexico, dental caries is highly prevalent in primary dentition. We determine the experience, prevalence, and severity of caries in primary dentition. One in two children had dental caries. Oral hygiene practices were associated with dental caries. Certain inequalities in oral health were observed.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the experience, prevalence, and severity of caries in primary dentition and associated factors in 6- and 7-year-old schoolchildren.
