ABSTRACT

This study aimed to investigate the relationship between quality of life, periodontitis, and oral pain among Korean adults. The study was conducted to determine the factors that should be considered for the prevention and management of oral diseases. The analysis employed data on the EQ5D, which is a measure of quality of life, periodontal diseases, and oral interviews among oral examinations from the 7th Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2016-2018). Data were analyzed using chi-square. Additionally, multiple logistic regression analysis was performed to assess the association between quality of life, periodontitis and oral pain. Statistical significance level was set at <0.05. In the model 2 adjusted for all variables, the odds ratio of periodontitis increased odds ratio (OR): 2.48, 95% con fidence interval (CI): 1.18-5.24 for those with great discomfort in daily activities, while the odds ratio of oral pain experience decreased OR 0.45 (95%CI 0.21-0.95). In addition, the odds ratio of periodontitis was OR 0.64 (95%CI 0.46-0.89) and the odds ratio of oral pain experience was OR 2.68 (95%CI 1.83-3.93) in the participants with high pain and discomfort. There was a significant association between quality of life and periodontitis and oral pain in Korean adults, but further studies should be conducted to determine more closely.
