AbstractThe objectives of this analysis were to describe the numbers of teeth lost and those indicated for extraction, dental prosthetic status, and occluding tooth pairs among adults in Southern China and to investigate factors affecting tooth mortality. A sample consisting of 1573 35- to 44-year-old and 1515 65- to 74-year-old urban and rural Chinese was examined clinically by calibrated examiners. Teeth not present for any reason were defined as missing (MT). The sum of MT and teeth indicated for extraction (IMT) was defined as adjusted missing teeth (AMT). Only 4.4% of the urban and 3.4% of the rural 65- to 74-year-olds were edentulous. MT were not significantly different between urban and rural residents, but more IMT were found in rural residents. Women, those who had a lower education level, and those who were less wealthy had more AMT in both age groups. Smoking was found to be associated with AMT in the 35- to 44-year-olds. Eighteen percent of the urban and 27% of the rural elderly had no occluding tooth pairs after IMT were accounted for, and only 38% and 30%, respectively, had 10 or more occluding pairs. Fifty-one percent of the urban and 43% of the rural elderly were found to have some form of dental prostheses in either jaw. A partial denture was more common in urban residents in both age groups.
