“…35 Divergent results have been verified in noninstitutionalized elderly individuals, in which the impact of tooth loss on nutritional status and OHRQoL has been found. 36 These findings strengthen that oral health has a secondary role in the OHRQoL of institutionalized elderly individuals. Nonetheless, the results of this study indicate that some clinical parameters can influence OHRQoL.…”

“…In Hawaii, for instance, native Hawaiians have an excess tooth loss 36 compared to Whites, with income and education playing an important role in this association. Among older Brazilian adults, socioeconomic status also plays an important role in tooth loss and functional dentition 37,38 . Moreover, wealthier people are more likely to know the risks and have the resources (money, knowledge, power, prestige and beneficial social connections) to engage in prevention or treatment 39 …”

“…According to Papapanou (2017)[ 33 ], periodontitis should no longer be defined solely by gingival/periodontal inflammation in the presence of increased probing depths and clinical attachment loss, but should incorporate additional dimensions capturing impaired function, esthetics, and impact on general health and quality of life. This multidimensional approach with social support variables, is a first step to understand that feeling happy could improve periodontal status and oral health related quality of life of Elders [ 34 ].…”
