Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the periodontal treatment needs, using the CPITN, in 12-16 yr-old children from private and public schools from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. A total of 1080 children was studied (540 in private schools and 540 in public schools). More children from private schools were seen without signs of periodontal disease than in public schools. More children from private schools showed no need for treatment. There was no statistical difference between children from private and public schools regarding the treatment need categories I and III. However, for the treatment need II category (oral hygiene-scaling), the children from public schools showed a slight increase in need over the private schoolchildren. Combining private and public schools, 12.9% of the 1080 children examined needed no treatment, 5.9% needed treatment I, 80.8% needed treatment II, and 0.4% needed treatment III.
