Note: Note: All estimates are adjusted by age (5-year groups) to the US 2000 standard population. SE = standard error. FPL = federal poverty level; <100% FPL = poor; 100%–199% FPL = near-poor; <200% FPL = poor and near-poor combined; and ≥200% FPL = not-poor. 0.0 = zero due to rounding.

*P < 0.05 based on t-test for differences between two periods or two groups within each characteristic.

Includes adults with at least one permanent tooth present. Missing teeth include teeth “missing due to disease” (dental caries or periodontal diseases).
Change from 1999–2004 to 2011–2016. Positive value = increase; negative value = decrease.
Reference group for comparisons within each characteristic, 2011–2016.
