ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of depression and stress on subjective oral-related symptoms in adolescen. Methods: This study was based on the 17th Korea Youth Risk Behavior Survey(KYRBS, 2021). A total of 54,848 individuals who responded to items regarding to depression, stress, and subjective oral symptoms were analyzed. Logistic regression analysis was performed to examine subjective oral-related symptoms according to depression and stress, and the analysis results were presented as OR (odds ratio) and 95% CI (confidence interval). Results: Among the subjective oral-related symptoms, ‘aching and throbbing teeth’ was 1.41 times (95% CI: 1.34-1.49) higher in the group with depression, and 1.40 times (95% CI: 1.31-1.51) was significantly higher in the group with stress. In the case of ‘gum pain or bleeding’, the symptoms were significantly higher in the group with depression and stress by 1.36 times (95% CI: 1.27-1.45), respectively. Conclusions: As a result of this study, it was found that depression and stress in Korean adolescents had an effect on subjective oral symptoms. Study results suggest that depression and stress in Korean adolescents has an effect on their subjective oral-related symptoms
