Trends in dental status in young Finnish adults


, : Trends in dental status in young Finnish adults. Proceedings of the Finnish Dental Society. Suomen Hammaslaakariseuran Toimituksia 83(5-6): 265-269

The aim of the study was to assess the trends in the dental status of young adults in the Finnish population from 1978 to 1983. Dental status was reported by the respondents according to the number of missing teeth. A representative sample of adult Finns was taken each year from 1978 through 1983 by the National Public Health Institute. In an annual postal survey the response varied between 78% and 85%. For the present study we selected the age group 16 to 34 years. Among 20 to 24-year-olds the percentage of the population having full dentition seemed to be increasing linearly by more than three percent annually. The percentages for 25 to 29-year-old men and women were 2.8 and 4.4, respectively. Among 16 to 19-year-old and 39 to 34-year-old Finns the changes were more gradual. The number of teeth retained seems to be increasing rapidly among young adults in Finland.
