Shinsuke Mizutani, Daisuke Ekuni, Takaaki Tomofuji, Koichiro Irie, Tetsuji Azuma, Yoshiaki Iwasaki, Manabu Morita, Structural equation modeling to assess gender differences in the relationship between psychological symptoms and dental visits after dental check-ups for university students, Acta Odontologica Scandinavica, 10.3109/00016357.2014.968870, 73, 5, 368-374, 2014.07, Objective. Some studies have shown a relationship between psychological symptoms and oral health behaviors. However, it is unknown whether gender differences affect the relationship between psychological symptoms and oral health behaviors. In addition, gender differences in the relationship between dental anxiety and dental visits for treatment or regular check-up are unclear. The objective of the present study was to explain the relationships among gender differences, psychological symptoms, oral health behaviors, dental anxiety and 'expectation of dental visit', evaluated as 'dental visits when treatments are recommended' in university students. Materials and methods. A total of 607 students (311 males, 296 females) aged 18-38 years old were examined. The information was collected via questionnaire regarding gender, psychological symptoms and oral health behaviors. Psychological symptoms were assessed using the Hopkins Symptom Checklist. Structural equation modeling was used to test pathways from these factors to 'expectation of dental visit'. Multiple-group modeling was also conducted to test for gender differences. Results. Psychological symptoms were related to low expectation of dental visit in females, but there was no such relationship in males. Oral health behaviors were related to expectation of dental visit in both genders. Conclusions. Psychological symptoms were directly related to expectation of dental visit in females and oral health behaviors were related to expectation of dental visit in both genders. To promote dental visits after dental check-ups at school, it might be necessary to improve oral health behaviors in both genders and to evaluate psychological symptoms, especially in females..

Shinsuke Mizutani, Daisuke Ekuni, Takaaki Tomofuji, Tetsuji Azuma, Koichiro Irie, Tatsuya Machida, Toshiki Yoneda, Yoshiaki Iwasaki, Manabu Morita, Factors related to the formation of buccal mucosa ridging in university students, Acta Odontologica Scandinavica, 10.3109/00016357.2013.797102, 72, 1, 58-63, 2014.01, Objective. Buccal mucosa ridging (BMR) is known as a clinical sign of clenching, which is one of the major manifestations of bruxism. However, there are few reports about the formation of BMR and no data regarding the association between BMR and factors such as malocclusion. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the relationship between BMR and factors such as the number of teeth present, gender, body mass index (BMI), occlusion and clenching habit in university students. Materials and methods. A total of 2101 students (1164 males, 937 females), aged 18-29 years old, were included in the study. BMR and the number of teeth present were recorded and malocclusion was defined using a modified version of the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need. Additional information regarding gender, clenching habit and BMI was collected via a questionnaire. Results. Forty-six per cent of the subjects had BMR and the prevalence of BMR in females was significantly higher than that of males (chi square test, p < 0.001). According to logistic regression analysis, the probability of BMR was significantly associated with female gender (OR = 1.501, 95% CI = 1.259-1.790, p < 0.001), crowding (OR = 2.102, 95% CI = 1.706-2.590, p < 0.001) and overjet (OR = 0.585, 95% CI = 0.418-0.818, p = 0.002). On the other hand, BMR was not associated with awareness of clenching habit and BMI. Conclusions. Gender, crowding and overjet were related to the formation of BMR in university students. When evaluating BMR as a clinical sign of clenching, one might have to take factors such as gender and crowding into consideration..
