The purpose of this study was to examine pervasive trends in oral cancer in different countries in an effort to discuss what to do to prevent cancer and drop a death rate. The materials of the study were selected from among articles of oral cancer by searching risk factor and epidemiology at a website (www.oraloncology.com). As a result of analyzing the selected literature, it's found that in our country, the percentage of oral cancer in total cancer dropped but the number of oral cancer patients was on the rise every year. In foreign countries, the number of oral cancer patients was on the increase as well, whereas the lethality dropped. In terms of demographic characteristics, the incidence rate of oral cancer was higher among men than women overall. The incidence rate of oral cancer was larger among older people. The major causes of oral cancer were smoking and drinking. To reduce the incidence rate of oral cancer, every possible institutional, administrative and legal measure should be taken to ensure of anti-smoking policies, and publicity of moderation in and abstinence from drinking should be reinforced. The additional causes of oral cancer were demographic characteristics by country and region. The incidence of oral cancer was under the influence of that was affected when the level of personal economy and education was low. Therefore it's important to redress social imbalance within a country and among countries to remove socioeconomic divide. As the oral cancer patients has increased every year, the incidence rate of it should accurately be grasped, and sustained research efforts should be made in consideration of demographic characteristics. Early diagnosis, public oral health education and preventive policies are all required to decrease the incidence rate of oral cancer.
A Study on Relationship between Obesity and Dental Caries of Young Children in the Province of Gangwon-do
Park, Il-Soon ;
Journal of dental hygiene science, volume 12, issue 5, 2012, Pages 459~468
This study surveyed and analyzed on the relationship between obesity and oral health in early child hood and on the oral health realities targeting 90 young children at K Child Care Center where is located in Gangwon-do Province from 10 to 11, June, 2011. As a result, DMF rate accounted for 56.7%. D rate accounted for 42.2%. The young children with the higher age, height in 100~110cm, and weight in 25 kg were indicated to be higher in DF rate than other toddlers. The young children with height in 110~115 cm were indicated to be higher in prevalence of dental caries in deciduous teeth than other young children. It was indicated that the young children in the higher age and weight leads to the higher in DFT index and DFS index. It was indicated that the young children in the more overweight leads to the higher in the index of dental caries in primary teeth, the filling deciduous teeth index, DFT index, DMFS, and DFS index. Accordingly, the child care center needs to systematically perform the oral health education and oral health management for young children, to allow Young children to acquire right food habit, and to pay close attention even to selecting snack.

Journal of dental hygiene science, volume 12, issue 5, 2012, Pages 469~476
The purpose of this study to grasp the effects of the stress coping method on the periodontal disease in order to provide raw data for the studies on the development of the training for effective stress copying method resulting in improvement in prevention, occurrence, and progression of periodontal disease. Data were collected from total of 326 subjects in their forties and fifties, during the period from March to October 2011. Using questionnaire and examination of periodontal health, and were analyzed using frequency, t-test, multivariate analysis of variance, multiple regression by SPSS ver. 19.0 (IBM Co., USA). The higher emotion-focused stress coping (
=0.341), the higher the gingival index, the higher the emotion-focused stress coping (
=0.239) the deeper the pocket depth, the higher the emotion-focused stress coping (
=0.158) the higher clinical attachment loss, showed statistically significant positive association. This study suggests that the dental clinic institute needs to implement education program including stress management and coping method improvement in order to prevent periodontal disease and make the occurrence and progression to be managed by professionals.

Journal of dental hygiene science, volume 12, issue 5, 2012, Pages 477~485
This study evaluate the influence of food staining food and bleaching on the color (CIELAB) and reflectivity of two-way (anterior & posterior) composite resin and flowable composite resin. There were 6 immersion media: kimchi, red pepper paste, blueberry, tea, curry and distilled water. A total of 36 specimens (
mm) were prepared and immersed in each immersion media for 8 days at
. Their color and reflectivity measured with the spectrophotometer at baseline and every 24 hours. Data from the color change and reflectivity were collected and subjected to statistical analysis by ANOVA, ANCOVA and RM-ANOVA. Curry showed the highest influence on color change and blueberry on brightness (p<0.001) on both resins. Bleaching after polishing made color change more than polishing or bleaching independently on two-way (anterior & posterior) composite resin, but not on flowable composite resin. It was suggested cleaning the mouth after taking curry and blueberry be needed to maintain the original color of composite resin.

Immunostaing intensity of Dynamin II protein in ameloblast during mouse tooth development showed a significant increase of 48% at the postnatal day 3 and a significant increase of 50% at the postnatal day 5 as compared with the postnatal day 1, but showed a significant decrease of 16% at the postnatal day 7 and a significant decrease of 12% at the postnatal day 10 as compared with the postnatal day 1. From the above results, Dynamin II had relevance to secretion of amelogenin, ameloblastin, enamelin and matrix metalloproteinase-20 proteins for enamel formation in ameloblast. Dynamin II may be involved in the transport of vesicles containing proteins for enamel formation through the acceleration of vesicular formation and may be had a good possibility of secretory regulation of proteins for enamel formation in ameloblast. Therefore, Dynamin II have potential for being used in the field of gene theraphy for periodontal disease and in the regeneration for enamel and dentin tissues lost to dental caries.

The aim of this study was to investigate the oral health problems among type 2 diabetes patients and suggest basic data for the promotion of their body and oral health by emphasizing the correlation between hemoglobin A1c and subjective oral health status. For 174 patients with type 2 diabetes and who were older than 40 years old, the questionnaire and measurement of hemoglobin A1c were conducted from January 9, 2012 to March 9, 2012. The results of the study were as follows. 1. They tended to be most aware of the following; 'inflammation on the oral mucosa' and 'pain on the oral mucosa' among the symptoms of oral mucosa, 'gum bleeding when brushing teeth' among the symptoms of periodontal disease, and 'feels dry in general' among the symptoms of xerostomia. 2. The patients with longer duration of diabetes showed greater recognition with regards to the symptoms of oral mucosa disease, periodontal disease, and xerostomia (p<0.05). 3. The group with regular meal showed lower level of hemoglobin A1c (p<0.001). 4. The level of hemoglobin A1c was higher in the group that recognized 'burning sensation', 'gum bleeding', 'gum recession' and 'bad breath' (p<0.05) as well as in the group that responded 'get up at night to drink' among the symptoms of xerostomia (p<0.05). Especially the symptoms of periodontal disease were revealed to be a factor that showed the 3rd strongest correlation with hemoglobin A1c.

Lee, Se-Jung ; Han, Gyeong-Soon ;
Journal of dental hygiene science, volume 12, issue 5, 2012, Pages 503~510
The aim of this study was to the self-concept and ethical propensity of dental hygienists. The subjects of this study were 748 dental hygienists from January 23 to March 30, 2012. Data were analyzed with t-test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson's correlation, and stepwise multiple regression analysis SPSS 19.0. The average score of self-concept was 3.44 points in dental hygienists. The self-concept scores were higher in absolutists (3.53 points) and situationists (3.51 points) than subjectivists (3.35 points) and exceptionists (3.35 points) in the ethical types. The self-concept Influence factors were idealism, relativism, job satisfaction level, and annual salary. In order to help dental hygiene students adopt to rapidly changing society, the university should make efforts to develop a curriculum and program for improving self concept and ethical propensity.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of dental plaque control depending on the detergent foods. Study design was a nonequivalent control group design. Study subjects were 14 males (38.8%) and 22 females (61.1%), the age of 20.6 years old. It was conducted from March 7 to June 13, 2012. The Patient Hygiene Performance index (PHP index) was measured as a dependent variable. Detergent foods were cucumber, pear, carrot, and peach. The PHP index of detergents foods were compared using ANOVA. Paired t-test was performed. SPSS ver. 18.0 was used for the data analysis. All detergent foods which cucumber (
), pear (
), peach (
), and carrot (
) was a significant decrease in plaque index (p<0.05). However, there was no significant difference among detergent foods. Detergent foods are effective in dental plaque control. However, no difference was shown depending on the detergent foods.

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the smoking experience of some middle school students and their oral health behavior in an effort to provide information on how to teach students to abstain from smoking and improve their oral health behavior to maintain or promote their oral health. The subjects in this study were the students who were in their first, second and third years in four different middle schools located in the city of Iksan, North Jeolla Province. A survey was conducted from June 14 to July 12, 2011, and the collected data were analyzed. The findings of the study were as follows: 1. The students who smoked accounted for 10.6 percent. Out of them, the rates of the boys and the girls respectively stood at 16.0 and 5.4 percent (p<0.001). 2. As for the life satisfaction of the smoker students, 9.5 percent were satisfied, and 15.0 percent were unsatisfied (p<0.05). 3. Concerning a plan for quitting smoking, 71.4 percent of the boys and 45.5 percent of the girls planned to give up smoking (p<0.01). 4. Regarding the links between smoking experience and oral health behavior, the students who had smoking experience got 2.19 in the use of oral hygiene supplies, and the others who hadn't got 1.97 (p<0.01). 5. As to the connections between nicotine dependence and oral health behavior, the students who replied they depended on nicotine got 2.68 in education and concern, and those who answered they never did got 3.21 (p<0.05).

Study the effect of stress factors and increases in stress at work on the changes in eating behavior and habits and the influence of these changes on the health of dental hygienists. Use the responses of 273 dental hygienists who work in or around the Seoul area after surveying them by post or face to face. The biggest reason for skipping breakfast was having no time (60.4%) and the most desired change in eating habits was over eating (33.0%) while 51.6% responded that they over ate or binge ate due to stress. The largest stress factor was work load 39.6% and subjects responded that after stress the amount of food consumed increased very much for 12.1%, very for 49.8%, indicating increased food consumption than usual. The group with the most job stress had a high level of self stress awareness (p<0.001), nervousness (p<0.01), back pains (p<0.001), optical fatigue (p<0.01), headache (p<0.01) and indigestion (p<0.01). The higher the job stress, the poorer the eating behavior was (p<0.01) and job stress was high for dental hygienists working in dental clinics with less than three dental hygienists (p<0.05). Low eating behavior scores could be seen in groups that took 4 night shifts per week (p<0.05). Job stress scores for high for groups with no break time during work (p<0.001) and these groups showed low eating behavior scores (p<0.01). Furthermore, if high levels of self stress awareness was present, job stress was very high (p<0.001) and eating behavior scores were the lowest (p<0.05). Job stress of dental hygienists impede the eating behavior and habits therefore has a negative influence on their health. There is a need for more efforts to solve this problem and thus maintain the health of dental hygienists.

Journal of dental hygiene science, volume 12, issue 5, 2012, Pages 535~544
This purpose of this study was to analysis the relation of awareness and practices of oral health promotion. The subjects in this study were 133 workers who worked in Seoul, Gyeonggi province, and were at the age of 20 and up. The survey was conducted from January 16 to March 31, 2012. The collected data is statistically analyzed by SPSS. For the level oral health awareness of industrial workers, the awareness of prevention of tooth decay and periodontal disease was high, but that of necessity of oral hygiene supplies other than tooth brushing was low. For the level of oral health care practice, they showed the highest awareness for the importance of cleaning a tongue when brushing teeth, and the lowest for the importance of dental care. For oral health awareness according to the general properties, workers with average income of 2~3 million one showed higher oral health awareness than others. For oral health care practice, those who brush their teeth more than 3 times a day and who have visited the dentist during the last year had higher oral health care practice than others. For oral health awareness according to the level of interest in oral health and the status of oral health of the industrial workers, those who have higher interest in oral health turned out to have higher oral health awareness. The relation between oral health awareness and oral health care practice of the industrial workers showed a positive correlation, which indicates that the higher oral health awareness is, the higher oral health care practice is.
