Assessing the Oral Health Literacy, Oral Health Related Quality of Life and Oral Health Status in Adult Patients ABSTRACT Objectives: Oral health literacy (OHL) is an important term that used to determine the individuals skills to make appropriate oral health decisions, to process and understand basic oral health information. OHL is considered as a part of oral health. This study aimed to evaluate the association between OHL, Oral Health Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL) and decayed (D), missing (M) and filled (F) teeth scores (DMFT). Materials and Methods: This study was conducted on Turkish speaking, 300 voluntary individuals between the ages 18-30 that were applied to Kırıkkale University Faculty of Dentistry without any cognitive impairment, visual and hearing problem. Patients’ socio-demographic information and DMFT scores were recorded. Then OHL level was detected using a word recognition test. After that OHRQoL score was determined using a special survey. Data were analyzed SPSS 16.0 programme with using Pearson correlation analysis, one-way ANOVA and Scheffe tests. Results: Male individuals had more missing teeth than female individuals (p=0.041). OHL was significantly high at higher educational level individuals (p<0.001). In terms of OHL levels, DT, MT, FT, DMFT and OHRQoL scores did not show significant differences (p>0.05). OHL level of the individuals’ did not associated with DT, MT, FT, DMFT and OHRQoL scores (p>0.05).Besides these findings, there is no association was found between DMFT and OHRQoL scores (p>0.05). Age factor showed a positive correlation between MT (p=0.001, r=0.197). Conclusion: The education level of the individuals has an impact on OHL levels. The association between OHL, DMFT and OHRQoL scores did not confirmed clearly. Key Words: DMFT, Oral Epidemiology, Oral Health Literacy, Quality of Life, TREALD-30. Yetişkin Hastalarda Ağız Sağlığı Okuryazarlığı, Ağız Sağlığı ile İlgili Yaşam Kalitesi ve Ağız Sağlığı Durumunun Değerlendirilmesi Özet Amaç: Ağız sağlığı okuryazarlığı (OHL), kişilerin uygun ağız sağlığı kararlarını verme, temel ağız sağlığı bilgilerini işleme ve anlama becerilerini belirlemek için kullanılan önemli bir terimdir. OHL, ağız sağlığının bir parçası olarak kabul edilir. Bu çalışma, OHL, Ağız Sağlığına Bağlı Yaşam Kalitesi (OHRQoL) ile çürümüş (D), eksik (M) ve doldurulmuş (F) toplam diş skorları (DMFT) arasındaki ilişki değerlendirmeyi amaçladı. Gereç ve Yöntem: Bu çalışma, Kırıkkale Üniversitesi Diş Hekimliği Fakültesi'ne başvuran, 18-30 yaşları arasında, bilişsel bozukluk, görme ve işitme problemi olmayan 300 gönüllü kişi üzerinde gerçekleştirildi. Hastaların sosyo-demografik bilgileri ve DMFT skorları kaydedildi. Hastaların OHL seviyeleri özel bir kelime tanıma testi kullanılarak, OHRQoL skorları ise özel bir anket kullanılarak belirlendi. Veriler SPSS 16.0 programında Pearson korelasyon analizi, tek yönlü ANOVA ve Scheffe testleri kullanılarak analiz edildi. Bulgular: Erkek bireylerde eksik diş sayısı kadınlardan daha fazla bulundu (p=0,41). OHL, yüksek eğitim düzeyindeki bireylerde anlamlı derecede yüksekti (p<0,001). OHL düzeyleri açısından DT, MT, FT, DMFT ve OHRQoL skorları anlamlı farklılık göstermedi (p>0,05). OHL düzeyi bireylerin DT, MT, FT, DMFT ve OHRQoL puanları ile ilişkili bulunmadı(p>0,05). Bireylerin OHL düzeyi DT, MT, FT, DMFT ve OHRQoL skorlarıyla ilişkili bulunmadı (p>0,05). Bu bulguların yanı sıra DMFT ile OHRQoL skorları arasında ilişki bulunmadı (p>0.05). Yaş faktörü MT ile pozitif korelasyon gösterdi (p = 0.001, r = 0.197). Sonuç: Bireylerin eğitim düzeyinin OHL düzeyleri üzerinde etkisi vardır. OHL, DMFT ve OHRQoL skorları arasındaki ilişki net olarak teyit edilmemiştir. Anahtar Kelimeler: DMFT, Oral Epidemiyoloji, Ağız Sağlığı Okuryazarlığı, Yaşam Kalitesi, TREALD-30.
