MUNAYCO-PANTOJA, Evelyn R.; PEREYRA-ZALDIVAR, Héctor  e  CADILLO-IBARRA, Marleny M.. Oral health-related quality of life in Perúvian children with severe early childhood caries. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2020, vol.22, n.36, pp.4-14.  Epub 01-Dez-2020. ISSN 0797-0374.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22592/ode2020n36a2.

Objective:

To evaluate parental perception of the quality of life related to the oral health of children with severe early childhood caries from a Perúvian health institute.

Method:

An observational, analytical, and cross-sectional study was carried out in 200 children aged 3 to 5, without caries and children with severe early childhood caries (S-ECC) selected randomly. A calibrated examiner applied the Perúvian version of the ECOHIS questionnaire (P-ECOHIS) and the dmfs index. The normal distribution was determined with the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test; the Mann-Whitney U statistical test was also applied.

Results:

The total ECOHIS score is higher in children with S-ECC than in caries-free children, with a statistically significant difference (p<0.05).

Conclusion:

Parental perception of oral health-related quality of life was negatively affected by severe early childhood caries in children at a Perúvian health institute.
