Abstract

Elementary school children or the age group 6-12 years who are in mixed teeth, it is important in maintaining
the health of primary teeth which at this time has an important role in the development and maintenance
of permanent teeth later. The results of basic health research by the Indonesian Ministry of Health in 2018
showed that 93% of children in Indonesia have oral health problems, which means only 7% do not have
dental and oral health problems. Children this age really like sweet and sticky foods, and do not understand
how to maintain good oral health. This study aims to collect dental and oral health problems in elementary
school children and how to deal with them. The design used is a literature review with criteria published from
2007-2020. Based on the articles collected, there are several dental and oral health problems for elementary
school children, both those affecting the hard tissues of the teeth and soft tissues or supporting teeth. Parents
and schools play an important role in educating children of this age to become accustomed to maintaining
oral health.
