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.

Synopsis: 
Dental caries is a public dental health problem worldwide. In this study, factors associated with caries were older age, female gender, those from large families, mothers with positive dental attitude, presence of plaque, and whether or not schoolchildren received dental care.

Objective: To identify the sociodemographic, socio-economic, clinical and behavioural factors that modify the experience of decayed, missing and filled teeth (DMFT) and caries prevalence in Nicaraguan children 9−12 years old.
