Socio-economic Inequality in Professionally Administered Topical Fluoride among Mexican Schoolchildren

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.361
Pages: 
275–81
Synopsis: 
Periodic dental visits have been recommended for preventive treatment. The experience of having fluoride administered by a dentist in the previous year was low in this sample of Mexican schoolchildren. Additionally, we identify and characterize socio-economic inequalities for this intervention.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To identify and characterize socio-economic inequalities in professionally administered topical fluoride treatment to schoolchildren.

Reasons Why Erupted Third Molars Are Extracted in a Public University in Mexico

Issue: 
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.

Frequency of Tooth Brushing and Associated Factors in Mexican Schoolchildren Six to Nine Years of Age

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.085
Pages: 
68–72
Synopsis: 
Tooth brushing is an effective tool to mechanically remove plaque. This study determines the tooth brushing frequency (at least once a day) in Mexican schoolchildren. The author observed that maternal characteristics are associated with the oral health behaviour of their children.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the prevalence of daily tooth brushing and evaluate some variables associated.

Salivary Parameters (Salivary Flow, pH and Buffering Capacity) in Stimulated Saliva of Mexican Elders 60 Years Old and Older

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.036
Pages: 
758–65
Synopsis: 
Chewing-stimulated saliva (paraffin method) was collected and the salivary flow rate, pH and buffer capacity were measured in a group of Mexican elders. We found that salivary parameters varied in relation to selected socio-economic, clinical and behavioural variables.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To compare a limited array of chewing-stimulated saliva features (salivary flow, pH and buffer capacity) in a sample of elderly Mexicans with clinical, socio-demographic and socio-economic variables.

Treatment Needs for Dental Caries, Restorative Care Index and Index of Extractions in Adolescents 12 and 15 Years Old

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.300
Pages: 
636–41
Synopsis: 
Oral health studies on adolescents are sparse. We characterized the patterns of health services utilization and unmet needs for tooth decay. Large unmet treatment needs, relatively low experience of restorative treatment, and few tooth extractions were moderated by socio-economic variables.
ABSTRACT
 
Objective: To determine the Treatment Needs Index (TNI) for dental caries, the restorative Care Index (CI), and to introduce a Tooth Extractions Index (TEI) to estimate past and current treatment needs among Mexican adolescents.
