CEA-SANHUEZA, Milton; GODINEZ-PACHECO, Bastian; ARAYA-VALLESPIR, Carlos  y  DEL-CASTILLO-LOPEZ, César. Association between nutritional status and delay in the eruption in children from 6 to 12 years old. Piura Perú 2018. Rev. Estomatol. Herediana [online]. 2020, vol.30, n.1, pp.31-37. ISSN 1019-4355.

The nutritional status (NS) of a child is important since there are essential nutrients needed for the development of craniofacial structures that, when low, compromise the body. One way to monitor and prevent the effects of malnutrition is with the age-appropriate anthropometric assessment (height-for-age) and BMI-for-age.


Determine the association between delayed eruption (DE) of permanent teeth and NS in children aged 6 to 12 years from the districts of Canchaque and San Miguel de El Faique at the months of June and July 2018.

Material and methods:

354 children aged 6 to 12 years old from the districts of Canchaque and San Miguel de El Faique are examined and the sociodemographic variables, NS and DE are recorded. Prevalences are analyzed and assessed for associations. Variables are reported in frequency tables and associated NS with DE through contingency tables and calculating their OR And RP.


The prevalence of individuals with at least a deficient anthropometric valuation (VAM) is 43%, and DE is = 26%. When assessing relationships, a statistically significant association (O.R.= 2.42 IC = 1.49-3.91) (RP=1.90 p<0.001) between the VAM-height-for-age and DE is described.


The prevalence of DE cases was higher than in other studies. There is an association between the NS of the individuals and DE with a positive statistical correlation between them, especially a VAM height-for-age and DE.
