PEREZ NAVARRO, Norailys  y  ANDREA LEON, Cira. El mural de mami y papi. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2003, vol.40, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-297X.

Summary An educative mural was made to give instructions in relation to health promotion and the prevention of dental caries, adequate food habits, oral hygiene and health in general. To this end, there was a previous contact with the parents and the child aimed at attaining behavior modifications among them. With all this, it was possible to teach them the value of preventive dental care. It was proved the efficiency of a mural as a technique for promoting health and preventing caries. It was observed that in the control group, where the preventive technique was not used, there was a higher number of children that developed caries again, whereas in the study group that was applied the prevention mural, the amount of children that did not develop caries again was larger. A year after implementing this technique, the percentage of incidence of dental caries in the control group was higher than in the study group. The percentage of reduction of dental caries in the study group, which received the mural educative technique, was greater than in the control group, where no technique was used.
