ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationship between dental caries and the frequency of dental cariesrelated dietary intake among primary, middle, and high school students. It is intended to be used as a basic data for adolescent dietary guidance. Methods: The data were analyzed using the health questionnaire survey and oral examination data from the raw data of the 2019 student health test sample statistics conducted by the Korean Ministry of Education. A total of 59,370 primary, middle, and high school students were selected. Results: For middle and high school students, the more frequent the intake of sodas, the more cases of dental caries were noted. The rate of dental caries was increased in comparison to the group which did not consume dairy products or consumed these once or twice a week. Conclusions: For middle and high school students, dietary guidance should be employed so that consumption of sodas will decrease or consumption will be reduced to less than twice a week.
