Diagnostic validity of self-reported oral health outcomes in population surveys: literature review

Abstract: Population-based health surveys are increasingly including self-reported oral health measures. However, their validity is frequently questioned. This study aimed to review the diagnostic validity of self-reported oral health measures - regarding periodontal conditions, number of remaining teeth and use and need of prostheses - and to present prototypes of oral health items to assess periodontal conditions. Papers published between 1991 and 2011 were identified through PubMed database. The sample profile, the s… Show more

“…The number of natural teeth (and the presence of edentulism) have been previously used as crude measures of dental health [40, 41]. Thus, differences in the amount of teeth of cases compared to controls suggest that glaucoma cases have poorer dental health.…”

“…The EMA approach used in this study provides many advantages over earlier technology for studying denture movements. First, the system is objective and unbiased, as it does not rely upon self‐reports of denture movements by study subjects, a particular advantage given that the reliability of patient self‐report in many areas of oral health outcomes has been the subject of much debate . Second, the method was able to dramatically limit or eliminate confounding head movements through the use of reference sensors on the mastoid processes and nasion, allowing us to focus on independent movements of the denture during chewing.…”

“…When reviewing existing studies concerning the validation of self‐reported dental parameters, varying results are observed. A recent literature review included 19 studies from 1991 to 2011 which dealt with periodontal diseases, tooth count and prosthodontics . It revealed that questions about the number of teeth and dental prosthesis showed high sensitivity and specificity overall but partially great differences among the studies existed (eg, sensitivity between 21% and 91% for tooth count).…”
