Objective: To explore inequalities in oral health impact among care home residents using OHIP-14 and ADHS criteria. Basic Research Design: Cross-sectional survey with structured interview and clinical examination using 2009 ADHS criteria including OHIP-14. Comparisons were made between groups of residents and with findings from the ADHS 2009. Participants: Care homes and residents were randomly selected. Those without capacity and non-English/Welsh speakers were excluded. 447 residents answered all OHIP-14 questions and had full oral examination. Main Outcome Measure: OHIP-14. Results: Reporting of OHIP problems was more common among care home residents compared with older people examined in the ADHS 2009 (50% vs 40%). There was no difference in the mean number of impacts between residents who were: dentate/edentate; denture wearing/non-denture wearing; with/without caries. Residents reporting‘problems and pain in your mouth at the moment’, or ‘occasional or more frequent dry mouth’, more often experienced OHIP-14 impacts.
