Using the OMS form, the Authors relate the percentage of dental decay (78.34%) and of dentofacial anomalies (36.41%) in 651 children from the age of 6 to 10, reporting a light prevalence of caries in female children (79.03% versus 77.64%) and of anomalous occlusions in male children (37.26% versus 35.55%). Besides, the Authors analyze the D.M.F. values of each dental segment and compare the various types of anomalous occlusions. Noting that the percentage in anomalous occlusions increases as the age of children goes up, the Authors remark that the anomalous occlusions of the first class of Angle are more frequent in children with bad dental status (67.81% versus 63.03%).
