COLUSSI, Paulo Roberto Grafitti; HAAS, Alex Nogueira; OPPERMANN, Rui Vicente  e  ROSING, Cassiano Kuchenbecker. Consumption of toothpaste and associated factors in a Brazilian population group. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.3, pp.546-554. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2011000300014.

This cross-sectional study evaluated the consumption of fluoridated dentifrice and associated factors in Passo Fundo, Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil. A total of 688 households were selected. A structured questionnaire was answered by the mother to obtain demographics, habits, and toothpaste consumption. Household toothpaste consumption was considered low when a tube lasted > 1 month and high when < 1 month. Logistic regression models were applied to evaluate the association between consumption and independent variables. 61.2% of households showed high toothpaste consumption. In the multivariate model, mother's age > 50 years (OR = 1.62; 95%CI: 1.02-2.61), mother's brushing frequency (OR = 2.53; 95%CI: 1.53-4.16), number of people brushing (OR = 5.69; 95%CI: 3.68-8.81), and cosmetic features in choice of the dentifrice (OR = 1.64; 95%CI: 1.03-2.61) showed the highest odds of high toothpaste consumption.
