Routines regarding oral hygiene during treatment with fixed appliances : A questionnaire study among dental professionals on orthodontic clinics (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Ortodontisk behandling utförs vanligtvis på ungdomar och kan innebära en risk för den orala hälsan. Studier har visat att patienter med fast apparatur löper större risk att utveckla svullen gingiva och karies. Syfte: Syftet med studien är att undersöka tandvårdspersonalens rutiner kring munhygien hos patienter med fast apparatur på ortodontikliniker. Metod: Studien är en kvantitativ tvärsnittsstudie i form av en enkät med 11 frågor. Enkäten skickades till fyra ortodontikliniker i fyra olika län i södra Sverige. Enkäten innehöll frågor gällande munhygien-rutiner och tandhygienistprofessionen. Sammanlagt 59 personer tillfrågades delta i studien. Resultat: Enkäten besvarades av 38 personer. Resultatet visade att majoriteten av deltagarna in-struerade munhygieninstruktion vid insättning av fast apparatur och vid uppvisad dålig munhy-gien. Samtliga deltagare instruerade munhygien på patienten och större delen gav även samtal och uppföljning. Gällande tandhygienistprofessionen har majoriteten av klinikerna inte någon tandhygienist anställd. Av samtliga deltagare ansåg 29% (n=11) att det skulle vara bra att ha en tandhygienist anställd på ortodontikliniker och 45% (n=17) såg behov av kontakt. Slutsats: Det fanns inte några större skillnader mellan professionerna och klinikerna gällande munhygienru-tiner och hur de utförs. Nästan hälften av deltagarna såg behov av kontakt med tandhygienist vid insättning av fast apparatur och vid munhygieninstruktion.

Abstract [en]

Background: Orthodontic treatment is usually performed on adolescents and increase risks for the oral health. Studies have shown that patients with fixed appliances more likely develop gingival enlargement and caries. Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the dental pro-fessional’s routines including oral hygiene in patients with fixed appliances on orthodontic clin-ics. Method: The study was a quantitative cross-sectional study with questionnaire regarding 11 questions. The questionnaire was sent to four orthodontic clinics in four counties in southern Sweden and contained questions regarding oral hygiene routines and dental hygienists. Alto-gether 59 individuals were asked to participate. Results: The questionnaire was answered by 38 individuals. The result showed that the majority gave oral hygiene instructions at insertion of fixed appliances and when oral hygiene was poor. All participants practice oral hygiene in-structions on patients and almost everyone had conversations and follow-up visits. The majority of clinics didn´t have dental hygienists employed. Of all participants 29% (n=11) thought it would be good to have dental hygienists employed and 45% (n=17) saw need of contact. Conclusion: No major differences between professions and clinics were shown regarding oral hy-giene routines and performance. Almost half of the participants saw need of contact with dental hygienists.
