This study was conducted to investigate the effects of oral health awareness and oral health behavior on cardiocerebrovascular prevention behavior in a cardiocerebrovascular diseases risk group and provide basic data for a nursing intervention program for the group. Data were collected from 131 people in the risk group of cardiocerebrovascular diseases living in J Province in February and March of 2018. The obtained data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-tests, Pearson's correlation, and stepwise multiple regression analysis. The results revealed that preventive acts were positively correlated with subjective oral health state (r=0.261, p=0.003), importance of oral health (r=0.250, p=0.004), and practice of oral health (r=0.303, p<0.001). Moreover, acts to prevent cardiocerebrovascular disease were influenced by oral health (${\beta}=0.29$, p<0.001), age (${\beta}=0.27$, p=0.001), and subjective oral health state (${\beta}=0.24$, p=0.003). Specifically, scores of preventive acts for cardiocerebrovascular diseases increased with higher degree of oral health behavior, older age, and better subjective oral health state. These variables had an explanatory power of 19.3%. The results of this study imply a need to prepare measures to enhance the oral health level of the risk group of cardiocerebrovascular diseases and conduct ongoing follow-up studies of the perception, attitude, and behavior of individuals toward oral health, as well as the state of oral health.
