  1. 1. On caries prevalence and school-based fluoride programmesin Swedish adolescents

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Ulla Moberg Sköld; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adolescents; approximal caries; caries epidemiology; caries incidence; caries prevalence; caries progression; fluoride mouth rinse; fluoride varnish; population-based caries prevention;

    Abstract : Dental caries on approximal tooth surfaces in adolescents is still a problem in Sweden, as well as in many other industrialised countries. The aims of the present thesis were therefore: 1) to study whether caries prevalence is underestimated, 2) to evaluate the effect of cessation of fluoride mouth rinse (FMR) programmes in schoolchildren with low caries prevalence, and 3) to reconsider the school as an arena for population-based fluoride (F) varnish and FMR programmes in order to minimise caries development in 13-16-year-olds.

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adolescents; approximal caries; caries incidence; caries increment; caries prevalence; cost-analysis; dental nurse; fluoride varnish; oral health promotion; phenomenography; population-based; school programme;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to study the effects on caries, conceptions and costs of school-based fluoride varnish programmes for adolescents in Sweden. Paper I was a 3.5-year randomised controlled study of 1,143 adolescents, in a low caries prevalence area. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Dental Caries and Caries-Related Factors in Children and Teenagers

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Anita Alm; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adolescents; Approximal caries; Caries experience; Early childhood caries; Oral hygiene; Fluoride toothpaste; Plaque; Psychosocial factors; Snacking habits; Body mass index;

    Abstract : On Dental Caries and Caries-Related Factors in Children and Teenagers Anita Alm, Department of Cariology, Institute of Odontology, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Box 450, SE-405 30 G?teborg, Sweden Dental caries is still a common disease among children and adolescents. The aims of the present thesis were therefore: 1) to investigate the approximal caries prevalence in posterior teeth in 15-year-olds, 2) to study past caries experience in the primary dentition in relation to future caries development and need for treatment, 3) to investigate factors during early childhood which are associated with caries development later in life, and 4) to study the association between age-specific body mass index (isoBMI) and approximal caries status in 15-year-olds.

  5. 5. Cariological Studies on Endodontically Treated Teeth

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Khalid Merdad; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Caries risk; Caries susceptibility; Cariogram; Endodontic treatment; Jönköping; Sweden; Micro-CT; Recurrent caries; Saudi Arabia;

    Abstract : Caries might jeopardize the long-term successful outcome of endodontic therapy. Therefore, it is of an interest for the endodontist to evaluate caries susceptibility of root-filled teeth (RFT). In the present thesis, several studies were conducted to explore this relationship.
