Evaluating the results, the caries intensity has been found to increase with age, and women who delivered one or two times have a higher rate than those who had no child. The irreversibel serious damage of the periodontium is relatively rare. The gingivitis frequency and intensity increases with age, parallel with this the oral hygiene is worse. The gingivitis intensity has the highest values in the third month of the first-, and in the eight month of the second period. The caries intensity increases parallel with the gingivitis intensity.
