Aim: To compare demographic characteristics between individuals choosing an indirect coronal restoration (crown, inlay/onlay) and individuals receiving other restorations after completion of a root filling. The hypothesis was that there are demographic differences for individuals who chose an indirect and those who chose another coronal restoration after root canal treatment. Methodology: This was a registry study of a cohort consisting of all root filled upper first molars that were reported to the tax-funded Swedish Social Insurance Agency (SSIA) during 2009. The root filled teeth were identified by tooth position 16 and 26, and by specific registry codes applied to root fillings. After registration of the root filling, any subsequent coronal restorations within two years was identified. The study group consisted of individuals registered with a root filling followed by an indirect coronal restoration and the control group was the remaining individuals with a root-filled tooth and a direct coronal restoration or no registration of any coronal restoration. Data on nationality, disposable income, educational level, civil status, age and gender were received from Statistics Sweden or SSIA. Chi-square test, t-test and logistic regression compared groups. P<0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: 7 806 individuals (21.9%) received an indirect coronal restoration and 27 886 individuals (78.1%) comprised the control group. All demographic variables but gender and nationality differed significantly between groups A significantly larger proportion of individuals in the study group had higher education, higher disposable income, were older and were less likely to be living on their own. Conclusions: The identified demographic differences between individuals having their newly root filled teeth restored with an indirect restoration compared to those receiving other restorations indicate that the tax-funded Swedish dental insurance fails to provide dental care on equal terms for Swedish citizens.
