Level of caries severity in children from 5 months to 3 years who attended the Pediatric Dentistry Service of the Catholic University, Guairá Campus in the period 2017-2018. Mem. Inst. Investig.

The pathology of caries continues to be a problem in Paraguay, children under 5 years are affected by high frequency values and these values tend to increase with age and caries begin to appear earlier and earlier. In order to determine the level of caries severity according to the criteria of the World Health Organization, evidenced by the ceo-d index, children from 5 months to 3 years who attended the Pediatric Dentistry Service of the Catholic University, Guaira Campus from March to September of 2017-2018 were evaluated through a retrospective descriptive observational study of exploratory nature. The sampling was non-probabilistic of consecutive cases, and the criteria for inclusion were children with clinical records correctly prepared and in good condition. Children whose parents did not sign the informed consent and who were outpatients were not included in the sample. The results showed an average ceo-d (7/54) of 0.1, starting at 2 years (ceo-d: 0.25), increasing with age, with a value of ceo-d of 1 at 3 years, concluding that the severity of caries was very low.
