Status Information


Term Description

Questions ask for self-reports about the number of natural teeth an adult or child has in his or her mouth. In addition, one question asks a parent or caregiver to record information on the number of teeth in his or her infant's mouth at 3-12 months of age. This is not a count of unnatural teeth; therefore, do not count implants and remove all false teeth, such as partial dentures and full dentures (some dentures are attached to implants and cannot be removed and should not be counted). If a bridge is present, count only the teeth remaining on top of which the bridge sits. For example, a three-unit bridge usually has two teeth or two abutments (one on each side) that should be included in the count and one tooth (in the middle) is usually missing. Note: This measure should only be used if the Dental Caries measure is not chosen. If the Dental Caries measure is chosen, this measure is redundant.
