概要 Assessing perceived dental treatment need is important for understanding and predicting health behaviors. The objective of this study was to examine the association of participants in the Concord Health and Ageing in Men Project perceived treatment needs with their normative oral health and service use. Data were obtained from a cross-sectional analysis of 274 dentate community dwelling men aged 78 or over. Most older men viewed their oral health positively, but more than half of the men with dental caries or periodontal diseases did not see themselves as required dental treatment. Underestimating their perceived dental treatment need could be a barrier to behavioral change of taking recommended preventive actions.
