ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to provide the basic policy and institutional data for improving the people's mental health and alleviating mental health through their oral health improvement by analyzing how the oral problems affect their mental health among the adults aged 19 or older. This study was conducted among the adults aged 19 or older who participated in the first and second surveys of the 7th National Health and Nutrition Survey. In order to accurately analyze the data by maintaining the circular sampling design method using the National Health and Nutrition Survey, the complex sampling method was applied by applying the individual weights using the distribution estimation layer of the colony extraction variable, and the chi-square analysis and the multiple logistic regression analysis were performed. It turned out that the more discomfort one feels with chewing and speaking problems, the more it affects one’s mental health. Furthermore, the higher the level of discomfort in the chewing and speaking problems, the higher the extent of stress perception and suicidal ideation according to the oral problem. In order to prevent deterioration of mental health, and if the oral health improvement policy is provided to the group who are perceived as having the chewing problem and speaking problem to prevent the further deterioration of oral health, it would be possible to alleviate mental health, especially the suicidal ideation and perceived stress.
