PEREZ QUINONES, José Alberto; MAYOR HERNANDEZ, Félix  y  PEREZ PADRON, Alejandro. Dental caries as urgency and its association with some risk facts in children. Rev. Med. Electrón. [online]. 2010, vol.32, n.2. ISSN 1684-1824.

The disorders produced by dental caries and other oral affections are multiple, making the patient assist to the urgency service. The purpose of this work was evaluating the relations among the sreptococcus mutans and lactobacillus and some demographic variables with dental caries in children, registered in five medical consulting rooms of Contreras area, municipality and province of Matanzas, for which we carried out an analytic study of the cases kind and controls. The sample was obtained by means of a polistaged, stratified, probabilistic design, and was formed by 900 6-12 years-old children (300 cases and 600 controls). There was a predominance of 6- 8 years-old children both in the cases group and in the control group, and there were not significant differences between the groups. There was prevalence of female children in controls and of male in cases. Children from the cases group had a high infection level by streptococcus mutans and lactobacillus, and there was stated a positive association of dental caries with these variables. We designed an educative strategy to evaluate and increase the information level studied children had on this disease.
