AbstractA national UK study involving a random sample of 876 non-institutionalized older people (aged 65 or older) were recruited, to identify the association between social support (living alone), self-reported oral health status and oral health behaviour (use of services). Home interviews were undertaken exploring oral health behaviour (time and reason for last dental visit) and oral health status measures (self-reported number of teeth possessed and denture status). In addition, sociodemographic characteristics were collected. Bivariate analysis identified that social support was associated with time since last dental visit (P < 0.01), reason for last dental visit (P < 0.01), self-reported number of teeth possessed (P < 0.01) and denture status (P < 0.01). In regression analysis, social support emerged as an important predictor of reason for last dental visit and denture status having accounted for other factors in the model (age, gender, social class and educational attainment). Social support is associated with oral health status and oral health behaviour of older people in Britain and is likely to influence both the decision making process of when to seek dental care and what type of treatment to opt for. © 2002 Blackwell Science Ltd.
