Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop a food intake questionnaire for evaluating masticatory ability of complete denture wearers, and to test validity and reliability of the developed food intake questionnaire. This study developed a 20-item food intake questionnaire; consisting of 14 most frequently consumed foods from 4 food groups, and 6 foods which were difficult to chew or could not be chewed by complete denture wearers. Masticatory ability of complete denture wearers was evaluated using the food intake questionnaire. Samples were 30 complete denture wearers. They rated their difficulty level in masticating 20 food items using a 3-point Likert scale to calculate a masticatory score, and also rated their satisfaction level with their complete dentures regarding chewing ability. Convergent validity of the food intake questionnaire was tested by determining the association between masticatory ability and chewing satisfaction. Internal reliability and test-retest reliability of the food intake questionnaire were tested using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient and intraclass correlation coefficient. From the results, a significantly positive correlation between masticatory ability of complete denture wearers and chewing satisfaction was shown (r=0.597, p=0.001). Cronbach’s alpha coefficient and intraclass correlation coefficient of the food intake questionnaire were 0.863 and 0.967, respectively. In conclusion, the food intake questionnaire developed in this study has optimal validity and reliability to be used for evaluating masticatory ability of complete denture wearers.
