Abstract [en]

Introduction Caries and poor oral health is an epidemy that affects many people and especially lower classes in society with small or non exiting financial measures to seek dental care. The aim with this overview was to look at the connection between bad socioeconomic aspects and poor oral health.

Method 10 scientific articles that treated the subject socioeconomic aspects and poor oral health were searched for in the database PubMed. Only articles regarding Swedish oral helath were chosen, all ages included.

Result This study showed that almost every article brought up the correlation between bad socioeconomic relations and bad oral health. More knowledge about socioeconomic inequalities is needed in order to work in a preventive way.

Discussion To even out socioeconomic inequalities knowledge is needed and a less expensive dental care because the reason low income gropus avoid seeking dental care is because they can not afford it even if they need it. Mapping out tooth issues is helpful to be able to detect trends over a long time in order to work preventively.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund Karies och dålig tandhälsa är en epidemi som drabbar många och främst samhällsklasser med små eller inga ekonomiska medel för att söka tandvård. Syftet med litteraturöversikten var att undersöka sambandet mellan socioekonomiska förhållanden och dålig tandhälsa.

Metod I databasen PubMed söktes 10 vetenskapliga artiklar som behandlade ämnet socioekonomiska förhållanden och dålig tandhälsa. Endast artiklar som berörde Sveriges tandhälsa valdes, alla åldrar inkluderades.

Resultat Studien visade att nästan alla artiklar tog upp korrelationen mellan sämre socioekonomiska förhållanden och dålig tandhälsa. Mer kunskap om socioekonomiska ojämlikheter behövs för ett preventivt arbete.

Diskussion För att minska socioekonomiska svackor krävs kunskap och en mindre dyr tandvård då de höga priserna ofta är anledningen att låginkomsttagare drar sig för att uppsöka tandvård trots behov. Att kartlägga tandproblemen är av hjälp för att över lång tid se trender och kunna arbeta preventivt.
