Demographics data,medical back-ground, oral hygiene practices and oral condi-tions were noted. Results: from total, 78.8% were edentulous and 86.7% had different oral conditions. The mean number of retained teeth was 7.34± 4. The most common oral conditions were dry mouth (41.9%), fissure tongue (30.5%), burning mouth (28.6%) and denture induced stomatitis (28.1%) respectively. Oral conditions were more prevalent in females than in males (Odds Ratio: 2.42, 95%CI0.93-6.28). Diabetes (OR: 6.22, 95%CI 0.816- 47.49) and hypertension (OR: 2.59, 95%CI 0.834-8.07) impact and deteriorate oral lesions.
