Few reports have investigated caries prevalence in rural areas of Brazil.
Objective: The aim of this study was to observe the caries prevalence (DMFT,
DMFS) in 12-year-old children living in rural villages of ParaÃ„Â±Ã‚Â´ba, Brazil with low
and moderate fluoride levels in the drinking water and to relate it to sugar intake
and oral hygiene. Methods: One hundred and ninety four children from 13 villages
were grouped according to the water fluoride levels: low fluoride (LF, ,0.2 ppm
F, 96 children) and moderate fluoride (MF, 0.7Ã¢â‚¬â€œ1.0 ppm F, 98 children). Caries
and oral hygiene (OHI-S) were scored according to WHO criteria. Sugar intake
was assessed through interviews.
