Materials and Methods: 121 students from the Universidad Santiago de Cali,were examined and controlled periodically by 60 students of dentistry, during an academic semester, using the Cariograma of Bratthal as a tool for assessment.


Results: We compared the results of data obtained at the beginning of the research and those who were at the end of the school semester


Conclusions: We found significant differences in use carbohydrates from the diet, decreased plaque and improvement of the salivary buffer jit vuales close to neutrality level.
