This report from the National Center for Health Statistics presents estimates of decayed, missing, and filled (DMF) permanent teeth among persons 1-74 years of age by age, race, sex, and selected demographic characteristics. These estimates_are.based.on examinations conducted during 1971~74on-20,749 persons who were selected by a probability sampling to represent the civilian noninstitutionalized population of those aged I-74 years living in the United States. 

Trends in Caries Experience in US Employed Adults from 1971-74 To 1985: Cross-Sectional Comparisons

As measured by the DMF index, caries experience declined in US employed adults under 45 years old between 1971-74 and 1985, with a commensurate improvement among employed blacks was not apparent.

Selected Restoration and Tooth Conditions: United States, 1988–1991

A measure of selected restoration and tooth conditions that supplements information from the DMF index is described to provide a broader profile of the impact of dental caries on permanent teeth of US adults.

Periodontal disease, tooth loss, and oral hygiene among older Americans.

This report analyzes data from a representative national sample of 11 338 American adults aged 25-74, examined in a national survey in 1971-74 to hypothesized that maintenance of oral hygiene levels corresponding to OHI-S scores of 0.3-0.2, is sufficient to maintain a dentition free of periodontal disease throughout life.

Future Needs for Dental Restorative Materials

The need for restorative procedures by the United States population will be on an upward trend for the next decade or two, and older age groups appear to require more treatment than did similar age cohorts in previous generations.

Dental Disease and Work Loss

The feasibility of a social outcome measure, work absence, was explored, and the prevalence and magnitude of work loss were sensitive to several sociodemographic, access, and health-related factors.

Oral health status of the elderly in New England.

The New England Elders Dental Study reports the prevalence, extent and severity of oral diseases and conditions among a representative sample of community-dwelling elders age 70 and older residing throughout the six New England states, suggesting periodontal disease prevalence and severity appear to have been underestimated in previous national studies of the elderly.

Dental caries prevalence and treatment need in Chiriqui Province, Panama.

The severity of dental caries in this sample was moderately severe and the treatment need extraordinarily high, ranking rural Panama with Mexico and Haiti when compared to the results of other Central American community studies.
