The aim of this study was to describe the caries prevalence of 14-yr-old children living in two fluoridated communities, a non-fluoridated community, and a community that discontinued fluoridation 5 yr before the children were examined and to relate the caries prevalence to socio-economic status. Clinical examinations were completed on 413 children of whom(More)

Clinical examinations were completed on 342 children, of whom 247 had been continuously resident in their towns.

This study investigated the prevalence of alveolar bone loss (ABL) in 5-year-old New Zealand children.

Standardized bite-wing radiographs from 317 children were used to examine the alveolar bone in 1784 sites. Questionable bone loss (QBL) was(More)
For all of the U.S. states with sufficient data, we estimated live birth and population prevalences for Down syndrome (DS). As social service resources vary between states, such data are important for public policy discussions and state planning. We predicted the actual and nonselective live birth prevalence, and population prevalence, for DS in nine U.S.(More)
