Edentulism, Severe Tooth Loss and Lack of Functional Dentition in Elders: A Study in Southern Brazil

Abstract: The aim of this study was to estimate self-reported prevalence of edentulism, severe tooth loss and lack of functional dentition in elders, and to identify potential associated factors. A population based cross-sectional study was carried out with 1,451 elders (≥60 years), in Pelotas, RS, Brazil. Crude and adjusted prevalence ratios were estimated using Poisson regressions. The prevalence of edentulism, severe tooth loss and lack of functional dentition was 39.3%, 60.9% and 82.7%, respectively. The factors pos… Show more

“…The prevalence rates of FDWHO and WDT among the Brazilian elderly were 10.82% and 8.45%, which were lower than those of the Japanese population (28.5%) in 2011 and low for the female population (26.2% against 31.6% among the Japanese elderly and 10.2% against 17% among the Brazilian elderly). These results are in agreement with those obtained for the southern Brazilian population in 2014 (17.3% for FDWHO), and in agreement with the SBbrasil 2010 (12.77% for FDWHO and 9.92% for WDT).…”

“…30,31 The findings of foreign authors are controversial in this regard, as some do not report any notable sexual dimorphism in terms of dental status while others prove it. 24,[27][28][29]33,37 This may indicate a regional specificity in this regard.…”
