Caries prevalence was: in women: 94% (CI 91.8-96.1) and 91% (CI 87.8-94.1) in men. DMFT (population): 12,4 (CI: 11.9-12.9);15- 24 ys.: 4,8 (CI 4.3-5.3); 35- 44 ys.:15,8 (CI: 14.7-16.9) and 65- 74 : 24,4 (CI. 23.3-25.5). Conclusions: It was found high prevalence of dental caries increases with age it is highest in women.
