In urban and rural areas, the mean of F (filled) component was 0.00. The highest DMF-T index was at subjects aged > 60 years, 17.19 in urban areas and 16.52 in rural areas, respectively. There was no significant association between caries status and quality of life both in urban and rural areas in subjects aged 18-44 years old (p > 0.05). As for subjects aged ≥ 45 years in urban areas, it was observed that there was a significant relationship between caries status and the quality of life (p <0.05).
