Title: Summary of Research Paper on "Level of work stress and factors associated with bruxism in the military crew of the Peruvian Air Force"

 

I. IntroductionThis research paper examines the level of work stress and factors associated with bruxism in the military crew of the Peruvian Air Force. The study is significant as it explores the impact of work stress on the health and well-being of military aviators. The main research question is to determine the level of work stress associated with bruxism in this population.

 

II. MethodologyThe study utilized a cross-sectional design. Data collection involved surveying 204 crew members and conducting a stomatological clinical inspection. The International Labor Organization-World Health Organization (ILO-WHO) Work Stress Scale was used to evaluate work stress, while the Smith and Knight wear index was used to diagnose bruxism. Statistical analysis was performed using the Pearson's Chi-square test.

 

III. ResultsThe study found that 93.7% of the crew members were men and 6.3% were women. It identified a high level of work stress among non-commissioned officers, while officers had a lower level of stress. There was a statistically significant association between military grade, sex, and age group. The category of "with bruxism" was more prevalent among sub-officers, whereas "non-bruxism" was more prevalent among officers. The study demonstrated a statistically significant association between bruxism and work stress (p<0.001).

 

IV. DiscussionThe results indicate that there is a significant relationship between work stress and bruxism in the military crew of the Peruvian Air Force. The study suggests that work-related stress can contribute to the development of bruxism, impacting the oral health and well-being of military aviators. These findings have implications for managing work stress and promoting the overall health of military personnel. However, the study has limitations, such as the limited sample size and reliance on self-reported data. Further research is needed to explore other psychological factors that may be associated with bruxism in this population.

 

V. ConclusionIn summary, this research paper highlights the association between work stress and bruxism in the military crew of the Peruvian Air Force. The study emphasizes the significance of addressing work stress in order to promote oral health and overall well-being among military aviators. Further research is warranted to better understand the complex relationship between work stress, bruxism, and other psychological factors in this population.
