Background/Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk factors in caries formation and relationships between each other in children. Material and Methods: A total of 84 children aged between 5-15 years were included in the study. The children were randomly selected among the patients who came to the clinic. Oral disorders and oral hygiene were evaluated with the oral examination. Examination of the children was carried out by two calibrated pediatric dentists. Plaque index, dmf-t index (decay-missed-filled primary tooth) and DMF-T index (decay-missed-filled permanent tooth) scores were evaluated by clinical examination. Plaque index was evaluated using Sillness & Loe plaque index. In addition, a questionnaire was performed about children's age, tooth brushing habits, sweet consumption, dentist visit and dental treatment experience. Statistical analysis was conducted with Mann Whitney-U test, Chi-Square test, Independent t-test and Correlation test. Results: When the survey data is examined, there was no significant difference between boy and girl patients regarding dmft, DMFT, frequency of tooth brushing, sweet consumption and plaque index scores (p>0,05). There was no relationship between frequency of sweet consumption and DMF-T, dmf-t and plaque index scores (p>0,05). No significant relationship was found between the frequency of tooth brushing and DMF-T and dmf-t scores (p>0,05). The examinations were revealed that there were no children with regular tooth brushing habits and the plaque index scores of children with irregular tooth brushing habit was lower than the children with no brushing habits (p<0,05). In addition, a positive correlation was also observed between age and plaque index and DMFT scores. However, a negative correlation was observed between age and dmft scores. Conclusions: It is observed that there was a significant relationship between tooth brushing habits and plaque index values of children.
