The purpose of this study was to identify effective ways to prevent periodontal disease in adults with risk factors for metabolic syndrome based on health examination examinees of some area. The study participants included 9,902 subjects who had received health checks at the Korea Association of Health Promotion from January 1 to December 31, 2014. All data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, chi-square test, logistic regression using IBM SPSS 24.0 Ver. As a result, it was found that regular oral examination (0.579), use of oral products (0.499), and oral health education (0.358) are most likely to affect the incidence of periodontal diseases among those affected by metabolic syndrome. The odds ratio of periodontal disease increased 1.79 times without regular oral examination, 1.61 times without oral products, and 1.43 times without oral health education (p<0.001). In conclusion, the results suggest that people with metabolic syndrome have a high risk of periodontal disease and that regular checkups, use of oral products, and oral health education are very important to prevent periodontal disease.
