However, in 6-year-olds the decline terminated after that period, while it continued in the 12-year-olds. In 1986 a national dental survey of the caries prevalence of older age categories was executed. As no comparable caries...

A previous study among Amsterdam 5-year-old children showed that on average, the older the child at the onset of toothbrushing and the less frequent the toothbrushing, the more life time caries experience it had. The aim of the present study was to assess correlates of these two caries risk factors, in four ethnic groups. A further aim was to...
