Abstract: 高齢者における客観的咬合力とQOLの関連について調査した.対象者は長崎県在住の223名(男性108名,女性115名,平均年齢70.3±4.6歳,).咬合力はオクルーザルフォースメーターGM10を使用した.QOL調査はSF-36の8つの下位尺度を調査した.その結果,一般高齢者において,男性に比して女性では客観的咬合力が低下していた.又,客観的咬合力は年齢と負の相関がみられた.さらに,客観的咬合力は特に男性でSF-36の下位尺度と正に相関していた.男女で相関関係に相違が生じた原因は明らかではないが,今回調査しなかった交絡因子が存在する可能性もあり,今後さらなる検討が必要であると考えられる. / We investigated the association with bite force and quality of life (QOL) in elderly individuals. The subjects were 223 adults( 108 men and 115 women), with a mean age of 70.3±4.6 years, residing in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. The bite force was measured using with a commercial Occlusal Force-Meter GM10. Health-related QOL was measured using the SF-36 Health Survey( SF-36). SF-36 questionnaire responses were mapped to eight domains. The bite force in women was significantly lower than in men, and it was negatively associated with age. In addition, the bite force was positively associated with SF-36 subscales in men. The gender difference might be due to any other confounding factors. Further studies are needed to clarify the association between bite force and QOL.
