The investigation documents caries prevalence and associated factors in a sample of16-year- olds from Troms County, Northern Norway. DMFT/S-values were 4.2/6.1, indicating dental health being similar to the south of Norway and the rest of Scandinavia. No ethnic differences were recorded. Out of a total of 22 tested variables, the following nine showed an independent strong association (p=0,001) with prevalence of dental caries: parental education, tooth brushing frequency, parental control of oral hygiene in young age, dental fear, self-rated dental health, BMI, self-rated general health, use of smokeless tobacco, and initial approximal caries...

In many parts of Sweden today, school-based fluoride varnish programmes (FVP) are perfor- med by dental nurses. Studies have shown that the dental personnel are largely responsible for creating the atmosphere related to children's and adolescents'experiences of the program- mes. Knowledge of dental nurses'experiences of performing FVP is therefore crucial in order to develop and improve these programmes and the dental health of children and adolescents.The aim of this study was to describe dental nurses'experiences of performing FVP for children and adolescents in Sweden...

In general, most infectious and/or lifestyle-related diseases are defined as being present when sufficient signs or symptoms occurs in an individual. The term "sufficient".is a relative concept and a disease can therefore be measured with different degrees of certainty.These symptoms are commonly defined in such a way that it is possible to determine the incidence and prevalence of the disease and also the proportion of individuals that are cured from the dis- ease. If dental caries is an individual disease which can be compared to other diseases regarding incidence and prevalence, it is important to determine for how long an individual must be free from new signs of the disease before being considered cured or free from the disease and to define the "sufficient" signs or symptoms needed for a diagnose...

Aim of the study was to determine the effect of an alcohol-free chlorhexidine mouth rinse and an essential oils containing mouth rinse on pro-inflammatory cytokine levels in gingival crevicularfluid in participants who continue to perform their regular mechanical oral hygiene regimes and normal dietary practice. Twenty adult volunteers (mean age: 59 years) participated in the double-blind randomised controlled cross-over study.Three mouth rinses were used during 16-day periods as an adjunctiveto regular mechanical oral hygiene: a solution with alcohol-free chlorhexidine (CHX; Paroex), a solution with essential oils (EO; Listerine), and water (negative control)...

The aim of the study was to evaluate the technical quality of endodontic treatment per- formed by postgraduate students in Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden during the years (2008-2011) and to evaluate the treatment outcome. In addition, possible influencing factors to treatment outcome were analyzed. All maxillary first molars that received endo- dontic treatment between 2008 and 2011 were included in the study. Pre, post and follow up radiographs were collected.The apical status (PAI-score),the quality of the root canal treat- ment (RCT) and the treatment outcome were assessed...

The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcomes of lateral sinus floor elevation (LSFE). A total of 347 medium rough surface implants were placed in both xenogenic bone and natural bone in 103 patients. A two-stage surgical technique was performed with a lateral window approach followed by a healing period of 9 months prior to implant placement. Patients were analysed with regard to pre- and post-augmentation bone height data (Group A), levels of mar- ginal bone (Group B) and implant survival rates/complications...

Like many other countries Sweden is becoming more multicultural and many residents do not fully master the national language and are not completely familiar with national norms and habits. The key to good interaction between dentists and patients is communication. Therefore this study aimed to examine whether there are differences in the experience of communication and care between native-born (NB) and foreign-born (FB) patients in the Swedish Public Dental Service (PDS). Consecutive patients at four PDS clinics in a major Swedish city (Gothenburg) were asked to complete the Dental Visit Satisfaction Scale (DVSS), eight additional items concerning communication and care, and a questionnaire eliciting background information...

For decades, Swedish dental professionals have collected clinical epidemiological data from the dental records. To supplement the epidemiology, Ostergötland County Council decided to examine patient perceptions of oral health: self-rated knowledge, self-perceived oral health, and opinions about oral health. The aim was to compare self-perceived oral health among 19-year-olds to determine differences between genders, various municipalities and between 2004 and 2011. This study analysed the responses from two cross-sectional surveys of the entire population of 19-year-olds in Ostergötland County, Sweden, performed in 2004 and 2011...
