    Abstract : Karies är en stor folksjukdom, trots att den både kan förebyggas och behandlas effektivt. Om man inte ingriper preventivt och låter det naturliga förloppet råda, kommer kariesangreppet till slut att bryta igenom emaljen och involvera även den underliggande dentinvävnaden. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    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.
