Abstract

Background: The purpose of this study was to compare the mental health and daily stress in periodontal diseases and normal group.

Material and methods: A causal comparative method was carried out. Using the screening sampling method, the sample subjects were selected from 20 patients with periodontal diseases and 20 attendants of patient as normal group. The two groups were matched from age, sex, social- educational status and lack of using psychiatric drugs. Goldberg general health questionnaire and Surafino daily stress scale were selected as research instruments. T-test and Pearson correlation statistical equations were applied to analyze the collected data.

Results: The results revealed that there was a significant difference between mental health and daily stresses in periodontal patients against normal subjects (p<0.001). The rate of mental health and its subclass in periodontal patients were significantly lower than normal subjects; however the findings came into view that the rate of daily stresses in periodontal patients was higher than normal subjects.
