Our study was conducted in 1999 and investigated tooth decay in two groups of children aged from 5 to 7 years and 12 to 15 years in Sarajevo. DMFT -dmft in these two groups was 7.53 % in pres-chool children, and 7.18 % in muddle school children. The prevalence of dental caries in pre-school children was 89%, and in middle school children 96.98% mean value: 92.9%. The results were compared with data for the prewar period in Bosnia and Herzegovina when the prevalence of the caries was 90% 1. Comparison with data for European countries was relative because of the low fluoride concentration in drinking water 0.060 ppm and because of changes in living conditions during the war. The objective of our research was to evaluate DMFT-dmft in children who had spent the period 1992-1996 in Sarajevo. The aim of this study was to evaluate dental health, on the basis of which dental care can be defined.
