The paper aims to analyse effects from intensive carious
lesions and hygienic state of oral cavity on life quality of children
aged 7 to 10 years old. The adapted parents‑oriented questionnaire
OHQoL has been used to evaluate the children’s life quality. The car‑
ies intensity exhibits reliable effects on all the dental status compo‑
nents like physical discomfort in the oral cavity as well as children’s
functional disorders, emotional, social and family well‑being.
