What type of care or treatment did you receive for this problem with your mouth and/or teeth? In particular any medication.
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
This set of questions (Q6752-Q6756) is only asked to respondents who reported having had oral health problems and having received professional care in the last 12 months. The purpose is to determine what type(s) of treatment or care were received. Read the response options and record all the types of care mentioned. A response of “yes” to “medications” is appropriate if the respondent took any type of pill, syrup or other medicine prescribed by an oral health professional in the last 12 months to treat a problem of the mouth, teeth, tongue or gums. If the respondent is not sure what is meant by “dentures or bridges”, describe them as “full or partial implants for replacing missing teeth”. Descriptions of “dental work or oral surgery” could include “special cleaning of your teeth by a dentist or dental hygienist, filling of dental caries, tooth extraction, or any other surgery of the mouth”. If a type of treatment received falls under a different category not listed here, record “other” and write down what the respondent mentioned.
