Abstract

Few economic studies on the costs of health programs have been published to date, most providing information that cannot allow valid comparisons of the cost-effectiveness of various dental restorative materials. Material and method: The study group was represented by 92 children aged 6-16 years. We calculated the cost-effectiveness ratio for two preventive programme: sealings and fluoridation. Results and discussions: The total cost of a sealing for the children studied was RON 4.697,4854. The total cost of fluoridation in the children studied was RON 1,575.1398. Total sealing time was 53 hours and total fluoridation time was 39 hours. Conclusion: Economic evaluation is a component rarely used in the assessment of oral public health. The impact of the health economy is felt not only from an economic point of view, but also from a medical point of view.
