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.

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.

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.
