  1. 1. Dentine caries : acid tolerant microorganisms and aspects on collagen degradation

    Author : Anders Hedenbjörk Lager; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dental Caries; Collagen; Cariogenic Agents;

    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

    Author : Ulla Moberg Sköld; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : 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.

  3. 3. Effect of Probiotics on Caries-related Variables

    Author : Sahal Alforaidi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; Bacterial interference; Caries; Caries prevention; Dental biofilm; Dental plaque; Lactobacilli; Lactobacillus reuteri; Streptococcus mutans; Plaque acidogenicity; Probiotics; qPCR; Saliva; Virulence;

    Abstract : In relation to the caries disease, the aims of this thesis were to investigate the effect of probiotic drops on different caries-related variables in vivo (Papers I & III), on interference capability and genetic response to different metabolites in vitro (II) and systematically to review the best mode and dose of administration based on the examined oral outcomes (IV). The effects on colonisation and cariogenic bacteria were studied in plaque and saliva via plating and qPCR-analyses in teenagers and orthodontic patients after short-term exposure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fluoride varnish programmes for adolescents at school – caries, conceptions and costs

    Author : Eva-Karin Bergström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : 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

  5. 5. I väntan på tandvård : Hur tandrötan blev politik

    Author : Christer Lindblom; Bengt Erik Eriksson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; dentistry; dental profession; historical development; professionialization; dental caries; social problems; politics; tandvård; tandvårdsorganisation; historia; Sverige; 1800-talet; 1900-talet; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the political history of dental caries and the evolution of professional dental care in Sweden. For centuries tooth decay was considered an unavoidable nuisance for the individual. During the decades around 1900 dental caries was gradually defmed as a social problem and a preventable national disease. READ MORE
