Abstract


Objectives: The purpose of this study is to review the condition of young adults’ teeth loss and dental prostheses and obtain the financial estimate which was needed for National Health Insurance Coverage for Korean young adults’ dental implant treatment.

Methods: This study analyzed young adults between 20 years and 29 years old using the data from the 7th Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The KNHANES data were used to generate indicators related to teeth loss and dental prostheses. In addition, this study estimated the financial data of dental implants for young adults by using the number of population covered by National Health Insurance, the number of dental implants insurance fee, and the number of dental teeth loss per person.

Results: Korean young adults have 20.4% of tooth loss holders and 2.1% of them require a tooth extraction. Also, dental implant holders were 2.3%. The estimated finance of dental implant treatment for the Korean young adults was confirmed from a minimum of 55.9 billion to a maximum of 233.0 billion.

Conclusions: In order to prevent early deterioration of oral health due to teeth loss held by young adults, attention is needed to the National health insurance coverage of implant for young adults.
