ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to examine the scaling experience and related factors of people diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Methods: The subjects were 30,680 people diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis from the 2014 community health survey who were ≧19 years old. Data were analyzed by chi-square test and multiple logistic regression analysis. Results: Those having regular scaling included well educated people, drinkers, more than three times tooth brushing practice, and regular dental checkup. The respondents were in the higher quartile of income And the respondents who were in the higher quartile of income were less likely to have scaling experience (p<0.05). Conclusions: The scaling experience was closely related with the age, educational level, residential area, income, drinking, tooth brushing practice, and regular dental checkup. It is necessary to investigate the influencing factors of rheumatoid arthritis and periodontal diseases in the further studies.
