Resumen : Aim: To describe the prevalence, severity and extension of clinical attachment loss (CAL) and to study the predictors in 15- to 19-year-old adolescents from high schools in the Latin America. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional, epidemiological study was performed. The sample included 1070 high school adolescents 15–19 years of age from Santiago de Chile (Chile), Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Mendoza (Argentina), ! Montevideo (Uruguay), Quito (Ecuador) and Medell!ın (Colombia). Calibrated examiners performed full mouth, six sites per tooth clinical examination. Results: There was a response rate of 100%. The prevalence of CAL ≥3 mm in ≥1 site was 32.6%, probing pocket depth ≥4 mm was 59.3% and bleeding on probing (BoP) ≥25% was 28.6%. The logistic regression analysis adjusted for cities revealed that smoking (OR = 1.6), attending public school (OR = 2.3) and having a BoP ≥25% (OR = 4.2) were positively associated with CAL ≥3 mm in ≥ 1 site. Conclusion: Clinical attachment loss was prevalent in Latin America adolescents and it is associated with smoking, attendance public school and BoP.
