    • Objectives: To test the hypothesis that certain individual, environmental and lifestyle factors are positively associated with beneficial health investment behaviours and oral/periodontal health among adolescents. Methods: Five hundred and six randomly selected 19-year old subjects living in two different areas (Fyrbodal and Skaraborg) in the county council of Va¨stra Go¨ taland, Sweden participated in a clinical examination and answered questionnaires covering psycho-social and health behavioural issues. Two oral-health models were estimated with gingivitis score as an objective and self-perceived oral health as a subjective indicator. Three health- investment behaviour models were designed with indicators directly related to oral health and two with indicators related to general health as well. The explanatory variables included gender, upper secondary education programme, native country, living area, general self-efficacy and parents’ education level. Results: In the objective oral-health model, theoretical studies and living in the Skaraborg area were both positively associated with a lower gingivitis score. For the subjective oralhealth indicator, none of the explanatory variables showed statistical significance. In the investment-behaviour model with ‘tooth-brushing 2 times daily’ as a health indicator, female gender and theoretical studies showed statistically significant associations. With the indicators ‘no/ few missed dental appointments’, ‘no tobacco use’ and ‘weekly exercise’, theoretical studies were statistically significant and positively associated. In the investment model with ‘perceived oral health care attention’ as an indicator, a high score of general self-efficacy was significantly associated with the feeling of taking good care of the teeth. Conclusions: Individual, environmental and lifestyle factors are associated with young individuals’ oral health investment behaviours and gingival health conditions.

  • Oral health-related perceptions, attitudes, and behavior in relation to oral hygiene conditions in an adolescent population
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Oral Sciences. - 0909-8836. ; 120:4, s. 335-341
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The aim was to analyze oral health-related perceptions, attitudes, and behavior in relation to oral hygiene conditions among 19-yr-old Swedish subjects. A random sample of 506 individuals was clinically examined regarding oral hygiene conditions and provided questionnaire-based information on oral health-related perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors. Higher scores of plaque and gingivitis were significantly related to the following perceptions: (i) a less favorable oral health situation, (ii) a lower satisfaction with the esthetic appearance of the teeth, (iii) more frequent gingival bleeding during toothbrushing, (iv) less favorable self-care of the teeth, (v) a lower possibility to impact on own oral health, (vi) a lower importance of cleaning the teeth, and (vii) a lower importance of good oral health conditions. More favorable oral hygiene conditions and more positive perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors towards oral health were found among female subjects than among male subjects. In conclusion, adolescents with high scores of plaque and gingivitis had less positive perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors towards oral health than those with more favorable oral hygiene conditions.
