Abstract

The disease which has most prevalence in Spanish school population is dental caries. The children's buccal health decay is as much important as to generate pathology at a local, proximal or general level, alterating his growth and development. Throughout this work, the importance of the problem is reviewed, and the way pediatrician's participation in prevention of this disease, leading to reductions of more than 50% of these lesions, is explained.
