Dental pain is one of the major public health problems among children and adolescents. It is mostly caused by dental caries and has negative impacts on children's and adolescents' quality of life (e.g., difficulty in sleeping, eating, school absenteeism) and their families (e.g., work loss, waking up at night). Several determinants have been found to be associated with dental pain, including socio-economic factors at the individual and city levels. There have been some instruments developed to assess dental pain among children.
