Abstract目的:描述廣東省成年人的口腔健康行為及分析影響牙科服務使用的因素。方法:通過多階段整群抽樣方法從城市和農村抽取35~44 歲組1 573 人和65~74 歲組1 515 人為樣本,用結構式問卷由經培訓的問卷人員進行面對面問卷調查。結果:被檢測的有牙齒的成年人基本都有每天刷牙習慣并使用牙膏,但大部分人不知道他們使用的牙膏是否含氟。只有23% 的中年人和24 % 的老年人在1 年內使用過牙科服務。不看牙的主要原因是自覺沒有需要和問題不嚴重。他們很少接受預防性的牙科服務。社會經濟因素和自覺的口腔健康狀況影響牙科服務的使用。結論:廣東成人牙科服務使用率低并多為口腔疾病癥狀所驅使,其口腔健康行為急需改善。 Objective:To describe oral health behaviors in adults in Guangdong, China and to determine the factors influencing utilization of dental services. Methods: The study sample comprised 1 573 35~44 year old and 1 515 65~74 year old Guangdong residents recruited from urban and rural areas through multi stage cluster sampling. The subjects were interviewed by trained interviewers using a structured questionnaire. Results:Almost all dentate adults brushed their teeth every day and used toothpaste but most of them did not know if the toothpaste they used contained fluoride. Only 23% of the middle aged and 24% of the elderly had visited a dentist within a year. The most common reasons given by the subjects for not having visited a dentist in the past 3 years were no perceived need and the problems not serious. They seldom received preventive dental services. Socio economic factors and perceived oral health status influenced the utilization of dental services. Conclusion:Dental service utilization of Guangdong adults was low and was mainly symptom driven. Their oral health behaviors need to be improved urgently.
