Objectives: This study aimed to identify the socioeconomic factors related to tooth brushing behavior among adults in Korea.
Methods: This cross-sectional study used data from the Korea Community Health Survey (KCHS) in 2019. Respondents aged 19 years and older (n=299,099) comprised the study sample. The dependent variable was tooth brushing behavior, whereas the independent variables were demographic and socioeconomic factors. The data were processed using chi-squared test, independent t-test, ANOVA, and adjusted multiple logistic regression analysis were performed. Statistical analysis was performed using the STATA 17.0 program, with significance set at the 5% level.
Results: About half (55%) of the respondents brushed their teeth at least twice a day. The findings also revealed significant differences according to socioeconomic status (P<.01). Those who brushed their teeth less than twice a day had the following characteristics: men, aged 45 years or older, low income, working outside, less educated, without a spouse, and living in rural areas. Adjusted multiple logistic regression analysis showed that the area of residence contributed to tooth brushing behavior.
Conclusions: The area of residence, as well as socioeconomic status, should be considered in oral health education and intervention strategies.

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to investigate the trend of dental caries inequalities according to the household income level of children and adolescents, using data from Wave 4 (2007-2009) to Wave 7 (2016-2018) of the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES).
Methods: The raw data were obtained from the website of KNHANES. The data by year within each wave were integrated and used for the analysis. In accordance with the guidebook for data users, the experience rate and prevalence rate of dental caries in primary and permanent teeth were estimated. Additionally, the absolute difference (AD) between the lowest and highest household income levels and the prevalence ratio (PR) by household income level were calculated.
Results: The AD in the experience rate of dental caries showed a tendency to marginally decrease in primary teeth and moderately increase in permanent teeth. The PR was not statistically significant (P >0.05) in all waves. The AD in the prevalence rate of dental caries decreased by 5.4% and 8.2% in primary and permanent teeth, respectively. The PR in Wave 7 showed that all statistical significance disappeared (P >0.05).
Conclusions: In Korean children and adolescents, dental caries inequalities by household income level showed a tendency to gradually decrease in primary or permanent teeth, and statistical significance was no longer confirmed.

Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the effects of a toothpaste containing sodium pyrophosphate and a high concentration (1,450 ppm) of fluoride on dental plaque, gingivitis index, and calculus index in a clinical trial.
Methods: This study used an eight-week, randomized, double-blinded, controlled, comparative, parallel design. The participants, who voluntarily signed a consent form, were screened through visit evaluation if they met the selection/exclusion criteria. After a one-week run-in period, the selected participants were randomly assigned to either an experimental or control group in the order of their enrollment. Subsequently, the participants were asked to brush their teeth with the study toothpaste using the rolling method for 3 min, thrice daily, for 8 weeks. Oral examinations were performed at baseline and after 3 weeks, 4 weeks, and 8 weeks. Evaluation of papillary marginal attachment index (PMA index), Talbott's gingival index, patient hygiene performance index (PHP index), Turesky plaque index, and calculus index were performed during the oral examination.
Results: After 8 weeks, the PMA indices were 7.12 for the control group and 5.00 for experimental groups. In addition, the PHP index was 2.06 for the control group and 1.66 for the experimental group. Significant differences were observed between the control and experimental groups in all indice (P<0.05).
Conclusions: This study shows that using a toothpaste containing sodium fluoride, sodium pyrophosphate, tocopherol acetate, and dental-type silica improves dental plaque removal, reduces gingivitis, and inhibits calculus formation.

Objectives: Disabled people experience difficulties in accessing dental services. Some of them tend to rely on charity dental services due to financial reasons. The purpose of this study is to identify some of the treatment statuses of disabled people to aid in planning oral health policies.
Methods: This study analyzed the dental records of 141 patients from 2014 to 2019 in a charity dental clinic in Cheongju City. The demographic characteristics such as gender, age, area, social security, and type of disability of the patients were analyzed. Chi-square test and logistic regression analyses were performed to investigate the sociodemographic factors related to dental treatments.
Results: Within the study population, 63.1% were men and 66.0% were older, over 40 years old. The type of disabilities showed significant differences in the possibilities of having periodontal treatments. The older people showed almost four times a higher risk of experiencing dental extractions than those who were younger, even after adjustments with sociodemographic factors.
Conclusions: Among disabled people, an older age corresponds to a much higher probability of extraction, making chewing difficult and leading to the deterioration of general health. It is therefore necessary to conduct a detailed and extended national oral health survey on people with disabilities to allow for the provision of systematic support.

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to analyze the trend of inequality in dental caries, deep periodontal pockets, and severe tooth loss according to the income level of adults using data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES).
Methods: The raw data from the 4th wave (2007-2009) to the 7th wave (2016-2018) were downloaded from the KNHANES website. The analytical subjects were 19 years of age or older who completed oral examinations and were classified differently according to the prevalence characteristics of each clinical indicator. The prevalence of permanent tooth caries (19 years +), deep periodontal pockets (30 years +), total tooth loss (50 years +), and 20 teeth and over (70 years +) were estimated according to the guidebook for data users. The absolute difference (AD) between the lowest and highest income levels and the prevalence ratio (PR) were calculated. All statistical analyses were performed with STATA version 13.
Results: The prevalence of permanent tooth caries decreased by 6.7%, but the AD increased by 3.4% and the PR was statistically significant. The prevalence of deep periodontal pockets was 6-10%, but the AD increased by 1.7%, and the PR of 7th wave rapidly increased. The prevalence of total tooth loss decreased by 1.5%, but in the 7th wave, the AD and the PR rapidly increased. The prevalence of 20 teeth and over increased by 10.9%, but the AD increased by ―4.3%, and the PR was statistically significant in the first and second quantiles of all waves.
Conclusions: In Korean adults, overall oral health status has improved over the past decade, but oral health inequality according to income level has generally worsened. Therefore, policy development including intervention in social determinants is needed to reduce the oral health inequality identified in this study.

Objectives. Xylitol prevents caries by inhibiting the growth and virulence of Streptococcus mutans. However, most reports only examined the presence of specific carbohydrate such as glucose or sucrose. We therefore tested the effect of xylitol on S. mutans in several sugars. Methods. Basal culture medium for S. mutans KCTC3065 was TYE medium containing 0.5% glucose (G-TYE). The strain was cultured in 10 mL basal culture medium adding 0.5% carbohydrates (sucrose, fructose, maltose) with or without 1% xylitol at 37˚C under 10% CO2 for 24 h. Cells were collected for analysis growth, acid production, synthesis of extracellular polysaccharides, and gene expression. Results. Xylitol reduced the growth rate of S. mutans in the presence of G-TYE and maltose (p<0.05), as well as the final growth of S. mutans in the presence of G-TYE, sucrose, and maltose (p<0.05). Xylitol inhibited acid production in the presence of G-TYE and maltose (p<0.05), but not in sucrose and fructose (p>0.05). Xylitol reduced the synthesis of extracellular polysaccharides and the expression of gtfB and gtfD in all carbohydrates. Conclusions. Xylitol inhibited growth and acid production of S. mutans in the presence of G-TYE and maltose, and decreased extracellular polysarccharides synthesis in all carbohydrates.

Objectives. The aim of this study was to develop a new caries activity test based on colorimetric changes that could better reflect the amount of acid produced by oral bacteria as a broad spectrum of color than the previous test. The optimal candidates were combinations of pH indicators, and these were evaluated in pH buffering solutions and using dental plaque. Methods. Six pH indicators, Bromocresol-purple (BCP), Bromocresol-green (BCG), Methyl-red (MR), Methyl-orange (MO), Resazurin (R), and Naphthyl-red (NR), were selected to show different colors at various pH environments (range pH 3.0~7.0). BCP and BCG are pH indicators that are already used in the Cariostat(R), and they can show color changes from blue to yellow. This study tried to broaden the color change spectrum from blue to red to give a more distinct differentiation at various pHs. Four pH indicators (MR, MO, R and NR) were blended with BCP and BCG. Each combination of the three indicators was assessed in different pH buffer systems: pH 7.0, 6.0, 5.0, 4.0, and 3.0. The selected combinations of pH indicators were applied to human dental plaque from 11 subjects (mean age: 27) to confirm the reproducibility of the in vitro results. Results. According to the in vitro buffer system, the mixture of BCP, BCG and MR did not show any differences between pH 4.0 and pH 3.0. On the other hand, the mixtures of BCP-BCG-MO (ratio 2:1:1.5), BCP-BCG-R (1.5:1:0.5) and BCP-BCG-NR (2:1:1.5) showed distinguishable color changes from pH 7.0 to pH 3.0. Among the three candidates, the BCP-BCG-NR mixture showed the best color differences in the buffer solution and the human dental plaque cultivated solutions at various pHs. Conclusions. This study evaluated a new colorimetric caries activity test that used a combination of several pH indicators. The new system can easily detect various pH environments from organic acid fermentation by using a wider range of colors (blue-dark green-green-orange-red).

Objectives. Proper cleansing of dentures is important for oral mucosal health in the elderly. We evaluated denture cleansers using in vitro antimicrobial tests with Candida albicans and Streptococcus mutans, as well as a denture base abrasion test. Methods. 1) We administered a questionnaire about denture cleansers to 632 elderly people in Daejeon. 2) The dentifrices, kitchen detergents were selected as artificial denture cleansers, and baking soda and vinegar as natural denture cleansers. Antimicrobial tests were performed by spectrophotometry using a McFarland nephelometer and total plate counts after incubation with each material. 3) Denture base resin discs (13×1 mm) were prepared for abrasion tests using a V8 Crossbrushing machine. Results. 1) Most elderly people used the dentifrices as denture cleansers was 65.8%. 2) After Vinegar treatment was less than 10% effective in bacteriostatic and bacteriocidal tests of S. mutans and antifungal effects of C. albicans. The antimicrobial effect of baking soda and dentifrices depended on the dilution ratio. Kitchen detergents showed an inverse relationship between dilution ratio and antimicrobial effect. 3) The dentifrices caused the most abrasion, but the effect was not significant. Conclusions. Vinegar and baking soda could be useful denture cleansers, but must be tested on other denture materials.

Objectives. Antimicrobial activity of extract of prickly pear (Opuntia ficus-indica var. saboten Makino; OFI) has been reported. This study examined effects of OFI extract on the growth of Streptococcus mutans. Methods. OFI was extracted by 85% methanol using an ultrasonic extraction method. The agar plate dilution method was used to count the CFU of viability of S. mutans KCTC 3065 that was determined by enumeration (colony forming units) in an agar dilution assay using no OFI (control), or 5, 20, and 50 mg/mL OFI following incubation for 0, 6, 12, and 24 h. The cytotoxicity of OFI extract (0, 5, 10, 20, 40, 50 mg/mL) was evaluated for human gingival fibroblasts by a formazan-based viability. Results. S. mutans growth was reduced by the OFI extract. The number of viable S. mutans was reduced significantly with increasing OFI concentration and incubation time (both p<0.001). The viable counts of S. mutans cultured with 20 and 50 mg/mL OFI decreased gradually but appreciably (>88.7%) by 6 h and no S. mutans remained when cultured with 50 mg/mL at 24 h. OFI concentrations of 40 and 50 mg/mL were cytotoxic to fibroblasts. Conclusions. OFI displays S. mutans inhibitory activity, and may be potential exploited as an oral hygiene agent for the prevention of dental caries.

Objectives. I tested S. aureus and MRSA isolates from the nasal cavity to determine cross infection rates using the mecA gene. Methods. I recruited 44 students from the Department of Dental Hygiene in Pusan. I measured the presence of the mecA gene from MRSA using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) according to Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) standards with the disk diffusion method. Results. S. aureus was isolated from 10 people (23%), with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in 2 people. These isolates also showed resistance to oxacillin and cefoxitin according to CLSI guidelines and contained the mecA gene. Conclusions. Cross infection in the hospital is important for students working at dental clinics in the future, and further information is needed about the risks of cross infection in this population.

Objectives. We developed PBL packages for oral health education and explored the course`s meaning of the packages for applying PBL to dental hygiene education. Methods. After PBL packages were developed and used, the components of the packages were compared to those of expository and practice centered instruction. Those are subject, main concept, an issue situation, degree of difficulty, achievement evaluation etc. Results. The PBL packages developed in this study provide problem situations that students might face in the clinic after graduation, and the packages stimulate independent problem-solving instead of relying on existing expository and practice-centered teaching practices that merely convey content. We assessed the application of problem-based learning, the preparation of educational plans, small grouping, tutor posting, and a variety of learning methods, and selected learners were interviewed to describe their PBL experiences. The significance of applying problem-based learning was also analyzed. The learners initially had difficulties with the PBL process, but became accustomed to it with experience, and this process learning did not disrupt the educational value. Conclusions. This study suggests ways to implement PBL in dental hygiene education.

Objectives. Oral malodor originates from VSC from amino acid metabolism by bacteria. Many patients with periodontitis have oral malodor and we therefore tested the relationship between oral malodor and periodontal status. Methods. A total of 138 adults were investigated using the O`Leary index, Loe & Silness index, formation of periodontal pocket depth, amount of loss for interproximal bone and missing tooth. And measuring the malodor by use of Oral Chroma volatile sulfur compounds. Data were analyzed with a t-test, one-way of variance and multiple regression using SPSS 12.0. Results. A higher O`Leary plaque index produced higher levels of dimethyl sulfide (p<0.01). Gingivitis, also tended to increase the concentration of hydrogen sulfide (p=0.095). Deeper periodontal pocket depth (<4 mm, 4~5 mm, ≥6 mm), also increased the concentration of hydrogen sulfide (p<0.05). Methyl mercaptan levels also tended to increase hydrogen sulfide levels (p=0.188). Higher interproximal bone loss (<50 mm, 50-80 mm, ≥80 mm) increase levels of methyl mercaptan (p=0.05), which was also higher in the missing tooth group than the non-missing tooth group (p<0.01). For total VSC concentration, a higher loss of interproximal bone increased the risk of halitosis (p<0.05). Conclusions. Blocking VSC generation in the periodontal pocket by periodontal therapy could vicious circle of periodontal disease and oral malodor.

Objectives. The purpose of this study was to examine the awareness of dental hygienists, who were certified suppliers of visiting nursing service and long-term care, and of dentists, who were their supervisors, about the long-term care insurance system for senior citizens in an attempt to provide information on the role enlargement of the dental service suppliers involving dentists and dental hygienists and the improvement of the system, as the insurance was launched to keep up with the trend of the times. Methods. The subjects in this study were dentists and dental hygienists in the capital area (Seoul, Incheon and Gyeonggi Province), on whom a self-administered survey was conducted from January to April, 2009. The answer sheets from 207 dentists and 266 dental hygienists were gathered, and the collected data were analyzed with a SPSS 14.0 program. A frequency analysis, independent t-test and cross-tabs were carried out, and Pearson correlation coefficient was utilized to look for the correlation among the selected variables. Results. 41.5% of the dentists and 50.4% of the dental hygienists just heard about the long-term care insurance for senior citizens without having any further knowledge. Only 3.4% of the dentists and 4.5% of the dental hygienists know about it in detail. Among three items presented, the dentists (3.64) and dental hygienists (3.90) agreed the most to the necessity of the insurance, while they agreed the least to the additional payment of premium. Regarding the correlation between their subjective awareness of the insurance and relevant variables, the subjective awareness of the dentists had a statistically significant relationship to all the variables, and there was a statistically significant relationship between the awareness of the dental hygienists about the necessity of the insurance and their participation in it. Conclusions. The dental service suppliers weren`t well aware of the long-term care insurance system for senior citizens, but those whose family members were in need of long-term care were well cognizant of it in general. To improve their awareness and support for the system, more intensive P.R. efforts are required, and systematic educational programs should be prepared.

Objectives. Self-analysis of oral health and the ability to manage oral hygiene in scaling patients is important for planning and managing oral hygiene. The PHP index allows the communication of self-controlled methods of oral hygiene. We evaluated the effect of scaling and tooth brushing instruction after an oral examination. Methods. This study was conducted on 100 patients who visited the C dental clinic in Seoul for a worker`s oral examination from January 2 to June 30, 2009. They were 25~29 years old and needed scaling treatment. An oral check-up and PHP index survey were taken 3 times; before tooth brushing instruction, 1 week after instruction, and 1 month after instruction. Results. It showed that gender and toothbrushing method had relevance to gingival bleeding and gingivitis. The PHP index decreased 1 week after instrucion but increased at 1 month. For the usage of oral hygiene aid goods, dental floss is the most used goods, the second is a mouth wash, and the third is a electric toothbrush. Conclusions. Tooth brushing instruction is important for oral hygiene. However, instruction needs to be performed repeatedly and systematically over time.

Objectives. We measured the factors affecting job satisfaction of dental auxiliaries to understand how to improve their working conditions. Methods. We evaluated satisfaction levels of dental auxiliaries in dental service institutes in Jeonju and Iksan, Jeollabuk-do, Korea. Results. Job satisfaction varied depending on socio-demographic features. Auxiliaries that were older, more educated, married, and high income earners showed higher satisfaction. Management components of the job also increased job satisfaction. The communication and compensation system showed the highest correlation, a 0.637 Pearson correlation coefficient. Operations improved when employees had manuals for the job; when they were given responsibilities; when they had more social gatherings on a regular basis; when they had incentive programs; and when they had opportunities for education or professional development. Satisfaction with management communication improved when complaints were resolved smoothly; when the opinions of dental auxiliaries were trusted by dentists; and with better communication between dentists and their auxiliaries. Conclusions. The compensation system was least satisfactory of the 6 constituent factors, indicating that increased wages and incentives are needed to promote job satisfaction. Improving other management factors such as communications can also increase the job satisfaction.
