Study Associates Tooth Loss to Depression and Anxiety

Tooth loss from caries and periodontal disease is an outcome of complex, chronic conditions. Several biopsychosocial factors are involved, including accessing care. Individuals reporting dental anxiety may avoid dental care, and individuals with depression may be negligent in self-care. In this study, researchers examined a potential association of tooth loss with depression and anxiety.

The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Survey is a complex telephone survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state health departments.
