Popular Abstract in Swedish

Av pedagogiska skäl har anförts att det finns behov av mer kunskaper om människans tänkande om och förhållningssätt till munhälsa och tandvård. Syftet med denna undersökning var att undersöka och beskriva vuxna människors subjektiva tänkande om och förhållningssätt till munhälsa för att belysa faktorer som bidrar till eller utgör hinder för förändring av handlingsberedskapen för att främja munhälsan. I undersökningen ingick 80 personer, 20-65 år, varav hälften med och hälften utan diagnostiserad och behandlad avancerad parodontit. Den öppna och explorativa formen av datainsamling bestod av semistrukturerade bandinspelade intervjuer. Analysen hade en tolkande och kontextuell karaktär och syftade... (More)

I undersökningen ingick 80 personer, 20-65 år, varav hälften med och hälften utan diagnostiserad och behandlad avancerad parodontit. Den öppna och explorativa formen av datainsamling bestod av semistrukturerade bandinspelade intervjuer. Analysen hade en tolkande och kontextuell karaktär och syftade till att beskriva variationen i tänkande om och förhållningssätt till munhälsa och tandvård hos intervjupersonerna. Resultaten visade att, den del av intervjupersonerna som utvecklat förståelse för betingelserna för munhälsa, hade ett tänkande om och förhållningssätt till munhälsa som karaktäriserades av eget lärande vad gäller såväl kunskaper som handlingsmönster, medan övriga litade till den professionella tandvårdens åtgärder. Dessa skillnader kan vara relaterade till varför vissa vårdsökande förblir friska efter insatt behandling medan andra uppvisar ständigt nya recidiv. Detta visar att vi inom tandvården i större utsträckning behöver utgå från den vårdsökandes möjligheter att förstå och reflektera över betingelserna för den egna munhälsan. (Less)
Abstract
The need, for health educational reasons, of obtaining a more adequate understanding of how people think and act in connection with questions of dental health and professional dental care has been emphasized. The present study examines the attitudes and conceptions of adult individuals regarding their own dental health, as well as measures they take to further it. The aim is to elucidate factors that contribute to or hinder changes in people's readiness to maintain or improve their dental health. Eighty persons 20-65 years of age, half of them with and half without a diagnosis of moderate to advanced periodontitis, took part in the investigation. Data collection was of an open and exploratory type, involving semi-structured interviews that... (More)
The need, for health educational reasons, of obtaining a more adequate understanding of how people think and act in connection with questions of dental health and professional dental care has been emphasized. The present study examines the attitudes and conceptions of adult individuals regarding their own dental health, as well as measures they take to further it. The aim is to elucidate factors that contribute to or hinder changes in people's readiness to maintain or improve their dental health. Eighty persons 20-65 years of age, half of them with and half without a diagnosis of moderate to advanced periodontitis, took part in the investigation. Data collection was of an open and exploratory type, involving semi-structured interviews that were tape-recorded. The data analysis was interpretive and contextual in character, aimed at describing variations and differences in the participants' thinking and the approach they took concerning matters of professional dental care and their own care of their teeth. The results indicate that, for those participants who showed a clear understanding of what maintenance of dental health requires, the conceptions of how dental health can be maintained and the dental health measures taken were characterized by their acquiring and learning of these on their own, whereas the other participants simply relied on the measures taken by the dental health care professionals they consulted. It is suggested that these differences can serve to explain why the treatment of some dental patients is successful in the long run and that of others is not. This is seen as highlighting the importance in dental care of greater attention being directed at the patient's ability to understand and reflect on what is required for success in maintaining one's own dental health.
