Association of self-perceived oral health in schoolchildren

Fábio Rodrigues

The aim of this study was to assess the association between self-perceived oral health, considering the domains of oral symptoms, functional limitation, emotional well-being and social well-being, and the history of caries in students aged 8 to 14 in the municipality of São Gabriel da Cachoeira, Amazonas - Brazil. The sample consisted of 509 students enrolled in the six municipal and state public schools in the Brazilian municipality with the highest proportion of self-declared indigenous people, São Gabriel da Cachoeira (SGC), Amazonas State, Brazil. The participants were divided into two groups, one with children aged 8 to 10 and the other with children aged 11 to 14. The epidemiological examination was carried out by a calibrated examiner (Kappa: 0.98), using the CPO-D and ceo-d indices, and self-perceived health was measured using the Child Perceptions Questionnaire CPQ8-10 and CPQ11-14 instruments, which assess four domains: oral symptoms, functional limitations, emotional well-being and social well-being. The significance of the associations between the variables was tested by bivariate analysis and the associations that showed a p-value of less than 0.25.
