Abstract

Objective. Estimate the rate of use of the Explicit Dental Health Guarantees (GES) by pregnant women from 2010 to 2019 in the regions of Chile. Patients and methods. Design: Descriptive, observational. Participants: Pregnant women, cared for in the public system. The total of pregnant women (1,854,621), pregnant women admitted to the GES (1,445,903), and pregnant women with full dental discharge (1,257,775) belonging to each of the regions and years analyzed (2010-2019) were studied. Measurements: estimation of dental GES use rates, evolution of rates over time using time series (regressions). Results. The means of the use of the GES and the effectiveness of the care by the GES was less than the optimal value (100%). Both rates differ from the target value of the health authority. The value of usage fees varies by year and region. The shape of the curves was predominantly non-linear. Conclusions. The use and effectiveness of the dental GES in Chilean pregnant women is not in correspondence with the objectives of the Ministry of Public Health. New studies are required to explain the causes of these results.
