by Fischer, Tatiana Konrad

Abstract (Summary)
This paper analyzed the primary dental care indicators of the Brazilian National Health System (SUS) as following coverage of dental attendance, ratio between dental extraction and dental procedures and coverage of preventive measures among children up to 14 years-old in the municipalities from the southern region of Brazil (n=1159) between years 2000 and 2005. In addition, the association of these indicators with socioeconomic indicators, dental services, water fluoridation and coverage of the oral health care in the Family Health Program (FHP) was tested. The increase of the coverage of dental attendance was positively associated with percentage of rural population, Human Development Index (HDI), number of dentists per capita and FHP coverage. Dental extraction was negatively associated with percentage of rural population, HDI, number of dentists per capita and the FHP coverage, and positively associated with Gini index. Preventive dental measures were negatively associated with Gini index, poverty and number of dentists per capita, and positively associated with the percentage of rural population, HDI and FHP coverage.
