VETTORE, Mario Vianna; MOYSES, Samuel Jorge; SARDINHA, Luciana Monteiro Vasconcelos  e  ISER, Betine Pinto Moehlecke. Socioeconomic status, toothbrushing frequency, and health-related behaviors in adolescents: an analysis using the PeNSE database. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2012, vol.28, suppl., pp.s101-s113. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2012001300011.

This study investigated the association between oral and general health-related behaviors and socioeconomic status, and the relationship between health-related behaviors and toothbrushing among adolescents. The database used here was the National School-Based Health Survey (PeNSE), a cross-sectional population-based study in 2009 with students from 27 Brazilian State capitals. Socio-demographic and health-related behavior data were collected. The survey included 49,189 adolescents (47.5% males), the majority of whom were 14 years of age and enrolled in public schools. The associations between toothbrushing frequency and other health-related behaviors and socioeconomic status varied between boys and girls. Associations were observed between health-related habits and toothbrushing frequency in both sexes, but with variations according to socioeconomic status. Planning health promotion interventions for adolescents should take their individual characteristics and family and social context into account.
