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.

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.
