Resumen

The objective of the present study was to verify the existence of the relationship between tooth eruption and the weight indicator for age. Material and methods: An observational, cross-sectional, prospective study was carried out. A total of 1644 children between the ages of 5 and 16, native of the Amazon were evaluated. A dental examination was performed in order to determine the stage of eruption of the tooth. The nutritional status was evaluated through the Anthroplus® program, where the anthropometric calculations were carried out for the indicators: weight for age between 0 and 10 years, height for age and body mass index between 0 and 19 years. It was decided to perform the anthropometric calculations in children between the ages of 5 and 10 years. Results: Low weight was significantly associated with the delay in the eruption of the central incisors, although a small effect size was obtained in the mandibular. A statistically significant relationship was found between the eruption delay of the first lower molar and the lower central incisor and the short height, although a small effect size was obtained. Regarding BMI, there are no atypical cases since all children have typical scores between-1 and 1. Conclusions: The present study finds a relationship between the delay of the eruption of central incisors and the low weight, expressed for the indicator weight for age.
