Complete Edentulism and Socioeconomic Factors in a Jordanian Population

Ziad N. AL-Dwairi, BDS, PhD

Pages: 541543
PMID: 21209990

This study considered the need and demand for complete dentures in a select group of 600 Jordanian adults and the relationship between complete edentulism and sociodemographic variables by means of a pilot-tested questionnaire. Both maxillary and mandibular dentures were fabricated for 505 subjects, while 95 needed complete dentures in only one arch. Significantly more men than women requested complete dentures. Approximately 80% (28 of 35) of subjects who required replacement dentures for esthetic reasons were women, while over 85% (18 of 21) of subjects who required a spare set of dentures were men. The findings suggest a significant relationship between sociodemographic variables and edentulism, with age, education level, and socioeconomic status playing vital roles in edentulism and denture demand.
