Resumen

QUINONES YBARRIA, María Elena et al. Some coadjutant factors of child's wellbeing and their relation to oral health. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2008, vol.45, n.3-4. ISSN 0034-7507.

OBJECTIVE: to determine the relation existing among some indicators influencing on oral health during childhood. METHODS: an analytical case and control study was conducted in the municipality of Bauta, Havana province, from June 2005 to June 2006. The universe was composed of 2 408 children aged 2-5. A sample of 400 children was taken from it. The following variables were used: oral health status, birth weight, gestational age and maternal breastfeeding. The odds ratio was obtained whenever it was possible for the variables whose association with the oral health state proved to be significant aimed at identifying the increase or reduction of the probability of having a poor oral health in the presence of the risk factors taken into account. RESULTS: 10 % of the low birth weight children had an affected oral health state, 6.5 % of the preterm children were considered cases, and oral health declined in 39.5 % of the children that were not breast-fed. CONCLUSIONS: low birth weight and the non-maternal lactation affect the oral health state, but gestational age does not.

Palabras clave : oral health; birth weight; gestational age; maternal lactation.
