A WHO survey was carried out earlier on caries prevalence in the 12-year olds. No data are available in the 7- and 14 year old children. The aim of this study was to investigate caries prevalence (DMFT, dmft numbers), percentage of caries free children and treatment needs in these three age-groups. The clinical examination was based on WHO's criteria. DMF numbers were 0,12, 2,11 and 2,51 in 7-, 12- and 14-year old, while dmf numbers were 0,79, 0,51 and 0,05 respectively. Percentage of caries-free children was 25% (aged 7), 3,3% (aged 12) and 3,6% (aged 14) in the primary teeth, 87,5% (aged 7), 3,3% (aged 12) and 0 (aged 14) in the permanent teeth. There is no treatment need in 27,5, 22,8 and 17,9% of studied groups. Extraction need was 0, 4,3 and 3,6% in 7-, 12- and 14-year-old. Restorations need was the following: one surface: 45, 65,2 and 71,4%, two surfaces 57,5%, 37, 52,4%, three surfaces: 35, 8,7, 16,7%, more than three surfaces or crown: 2,5, 1,1 and 2,4% at the age of 7, 12, 14 years. The number of DMF and dmf teeth was lower at the 12-year-old children than the previous Hungarian data.
