Sažetak
Aim To determine the predictive value of dental readiness
and psychological dimensions for oral health-related quality
of life (OHRQoL) in Croatian soldiers.
Methods The sample consisted of 402 consecutive soldiers
aged 21 to 54 years classified into the following
groups according to dental readiness: Class 1 – not requiring
dental treatment (N = 54), Class 2 – unlikely to need
emergency treatment within 12 months (N = 205), and
Class 3 – very likely to need treatment within 12 months
(N = 143). OHRQoL was assessed by the Oral Health Impact
Profile and psychological dimensions by the Brief Symptom
Inventory and Dental Anxiety Scale.
Results Multivariate analysis showed that Class 3 soldiers
had higher frequency of psychological discomfort, psychological
disability, and physical pain and handicap than Class
1 soldiers (P = 0.019). Multiple linear regression showed
that longer military experience, higher level of dental anxiety,
and dental unreadiness were significant predictors of
lower OHRQoL (P < 0.050) but accounted for low variability.
None of the single psychological symptomatic dimensions
was a significant predictor of OHRQoL.
Conclusion Although this study found a moderate association
between OHRQoL and clinical, military, demographic
˝, and psychological variables, the significant predictors
could be used as a basis for further research of clinical and
psychosocial factors of OHRQoL.
