Abstract:   (624 Views)
 Background and purpose: Asthma is a prevalent disease that affects oral health-related quality of life (OHQoL). There is no study on this issue in Iran, so this study investigated the OHQoL in asthmatic patients.
Materials and methods: In this descriptive analytical study, 54 asthmatic patients in Sari Tuba Medical Center were examined. They were selected by convenience sampling. The Oral Health Impact Profile-14 (OHIP-14) was administered and Ramfjord teeth were selected to examine the OHI-S index. Data analysis was done applying descriptive statistics and Kolmogorov Smirnov test in SPSS V25.
Results: The mean age of patients was 38.05±12.57 and 75.9% were women. The mean scores for OHIP-14 and OHI-S were 2.40±1.14. The highest score in the quality of life questionnaire was related to physical discomfort (1.17±0.96). There were no significant differences between gender, DI, and CI in OHQoL (P=0.893), and OHI-S and OHQoL (P=0.690).
Conclusion: In current study, no relationship was found between oral health of asthma patients and the OHQoL, but dentists are recommended to consider the impact of oral problems on patients' quality of life in addition to professional measures.
