From: Migration background is associated with caries in Viennese school children, even if parents have received a higher education

Variables Children with migration background (n = 373) Children without migration background (n = 363) p-value
DMFT 2.33 (2.28) 1.50 (1.77) < 0.001
DMFS 3.51 (4.10) 2.15 (2.80) < 0.001
SiC 4.93 (1.70) 3.54 (1.50) < 0.001
DT 0.83 (0.14) 0.34 (0.80) < 0.001

  1. Comparison of the DMFT (decayed, missed and filled teeth), DMFS (decayed, missed and filled surface), SiC (significant caries) index and between DT (decayed teeth) and MT (missed teeth) among children with migration background and children without migration background.
  2. Data are expressed in mean (plus SD) and level of significance.
