Dental Health Education

Current measures of dental health status are primarily clinical in nature and rely on clinical and radiographic assessment of the patient's dental health. Information about a patient's ability to perform usual activities related to good dental health--for example, chewing, speaking, and smiling--is not routinely collected. This study investigated what measures contribute to dental functional status, how they are related to traditional clinical measures, whether dental factors contribute to other generic measures of health, and the extent to which dental factors contribute to overall quality of life. The dental functional status index may be useful in clarifying the relationship between dental health and overall health and quality of life measures.
