Table 3 Odds ratio estimating effects of the number of natural remaining teeth a (NRT) on sarcopenia

From: Correlation between nutrition, oral health, and different sarcopenia groups among elderly outpatients of community hospitals: a cross-sectional study of 1505 participants in China

  1. NRT Natural remaining teeth, OR Odds ratio, CI Confidence interval
  2. Data are shown as odds ratios (95% confidence interval)
  3. aNRT ≥ 20 was the reference
  4. bCrude association
  5. cAdjusted for age, sex, education level, household income, alcohol drinking, smoking, chronic diseases, and physical activity score by logistic regression
  6. dNon-sarcopenia was the reference
