Abstract
Objective: This study was designed to evaluate and observe the relationship between oral health factors and hypertension of Korean adults.
Methods: Data of 5,155 adults over 20 years old were derived from the sixth Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which was conducted in 2015. The complex sample survey data analysis was performed using a statistical program. The chisquare test and logistic regression analysis were performed to evaluate the correlation between hypertension and oral health of Korean adults.
Results: The risk of hypertension was higher in lower income groups, lower education level group, old age group. Also, the frequency of drinking and obesity increased the risk of hypertension. The group without oral exam over a year, the group with mastication difficulty, the group with poor subjective oral hygiene, mastication problem, and speech problem, and the group with no use of floss, interdental brush, mouth wash, and electric tooth-brush had higher risk of prevalence of hypertension. 
Conclusion: According to the study, sociodemographic characters, and health and oral health factors affect the risk of prevalence of hypertension.
