In a recent study, investigators measured participants’ dental health based on the number of dental conditions they had. This information was used in a US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). (21)
The study found that depression was related to dental health. The participants with more unhealthy dental conditions were more likely to suffer from depression. In addition to that, the study also showed depression to be dose-dependent. The participants who had a greater number of dental conditions suffered a more severe depression.
