Share Abstract:

Dental caries and stress among South African political refugees


Pages: 579-583
PMID: 1410264

A sample of 194 persons, aged 11 to 39 years, was examined clinically and interviewed. There was a consistent association between caries experience and the different parameters for estimating perceived and experienced stress. In particular, the aggregation of different stress indicators seemed to be strongly related to higher caries experience.
