The National Survey of Adult Oral Health 2004-06: South Australia provides a detailed snapshot of oral health in SA at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It reports results from the 2004-06 National Survey of Adult Oral Health in which a random sample of adult Australians was interviewed and dentally examined.
The report describes the levels of oral disease, perceived oral health and patterns of dental treatment for the SA population and among sociodemographic subgroups of the population.The report includes a special focus on two factors that are significant determinants of oral health in the SA population: dental insurance and government assistance for dental care. Dental insurance is investigated by comparing oral health of people who have private dental insurance with people who do not. Likewise, comparison is made between people who have a health care card or pensioner concession card and people who do not. The results identify groups in the SA population most likely to be disadvantaged both in their experience of dental disease and access to dental care.
This report describes levels of oral health in the adult population of South Australia (SA) at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The findings are from the 2004–06 National Survey of Adult Oral Health (NSAOH). In SA, 1,335 people were interviewed and 629 people were dentally examined for the survey. This report presents percentages and means for 30 oral health indicators in tables that compare three age groups and classify people according to five sociodemographic characteristics: sex, residential locality, socioeconomic status of residential postcode, government health card status and dental insurance status.
Age-standardised analysis revealed that government health cardholders had poorer outcomes for 17 of the 29 indicators reported, while the uninsured had poorer outcomes for 20 of the 30 indicators.
