Abstract :

In order to evaluate children�??s oral health related to their frequency in a public early preventive dental care, this research was a retrospective cohort study with the purpose to evaluate 252 children, between 36 and 60 months of age, both sexes, in Gurupi city, in the Legal Amazon region, Brazil. Three groups were created for classification of the participants: G1 - effective participants since their birth; G2-children who have stopped participating for more than 24 months and G3 (group control)- children who have never attended a prevention program. The development of the evaluation occurred within two stages: interviewing mothers and children that have received a caries, gingivitis and occlusion clinical examination. The WHO index of decayed for primary dentition (deft) presented different data in the groups, G1 was 0.05, G2 was 1.96 and G3 was 3.30. Moreover, oral diseases were statistically more common in children that have never participated of an oral health program (p=0.025). As said by 54% of the mothers who left the program, the main reason was the forgetfulness of the appointment. In addition, the ruled children who always appear for the appointment have better results comparing to those who dropped out or never attended, regarding caries, gingivitis and malocclusion.
