The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship of body-shape perception and periodontal diseases in female adolescents based on the sixth 3rd-year(2015) data of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The subjects in this study were 211 female teenagers who were at the western ages of 12 to 18. As a result of analyzing, it's found that the body-shape perception of the female teens were linked to age, sleep hours, BMI, weight control and toothbrushing frequency, and whether they had periodontal diseases or not was found to be under the influence of age, smoking, sleep hours, stress, BMI and toothbrushing frequency. When the relationship between their body-shape perception and peridontal diseases was analyzed by controlling the confounders, the adolescents who considered their own bodies to be obese suffered from 3.18-fold more periodontal diseases(OR=3.18, 95% CI: 1.21, 8.38) than the teenagers who considered their body shape to be average. In the future, oral health care should be provided in consideration of the mental health of female adolescents to prevent periodontal diseases.
