ABSTRACT

This study has analyzed the relationship between the oral health status, oral health behavioral status, and obesity targeting 2,110 adults aged 40 years or older who were diagnosed with the cardiovascular disease, and identified the need for a proper weight management and healthy oral care practice for the oral health behavior, with a view to prepare the basic data thereto by analyzing the raw data of the 8th annual raw data for the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2019). As for the oral health behavior of the subjects, the frequency of brushing per day for the obesity group turned out to be the highest at 51.6% (p<0.01), and as for the oral care product other than toothbrush or toothpaste, the use of toothpaste solution turned out to be high at 54.6% (p<0.01). The probability of becoming obese among the obesity group without drinking experiences turned out to be 0.198 times higher than among the obesity group with drinking experiences. Considering the results of this study, there were no significant differences found in terms of the oral health status and oral health behavior status among the patients with cardiovascular disease belonging to the obesity group, yet it was found to be related to the differences according to the lifelong drinking experience. Hence, it is determined that the obesity management among the patients with cardiovascular disease is required via the sys temic and oral health behaviors and appropriate physical activities in daily life.
