Prevalence, correlates and treatment needs of dental caries in patients attending a diabetic clinic in rural southwestern Uganda: a cross-sectional study

Using questionnaires, this was a cross-sectional research that used questionnaires to gather data on socio-demographic risk, diabetes history, oral health, dental health care, lifestyle advice, and dental examination aided by the updated World Health Organisation oral health questionnaire for adults. Conclusion: We discovered a high prevalence of dental caries, a significant treatment need, and a high DMFT among our participants. In rural sub Saharan Africa, we recommend integrating oral health care into routine diabetic services.

Extended caries prevention programme with biannual application of fluoride varnish for toddlers: prevalence of dental fluorosis at ages 7-9 years and associated factors.

Objective Objectives: To investigate the prevalence and causes of dental fluorosis in children living in Stockholm's high caries risk and who had participated in a prospective, parallel, cluster-randomized, controlled caries prevention study involving children aged 1 to 3 years. All children were taught to use fluoride toothpaste, and the study group received fluoride varnish applications twice a year. Associations with fluoride toothpaste use at age 1 year and with socioeconomic status indicators were found. Conclusions The yearly application of fluoride varnish in toddlers was not associated with dental fluorosis, and the finding of this disease was not of aesthetic concern.
