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.
