Title Orofacial pain and tooth wear in swedish adults : cross-sectional studies in southern Sweden

English abstract
Aim. The present licentiate thesis investigated the prevalence of TMDpain and related factors, the prevalence and severity of tooth wear, and the etiology and factors related to tooth wear in adults in southern Sweden. Methods. The methods used included a questionnaire, history, clinical examination, intraoral photographs, and saliva sample. In Paper I, two screening questions for TMD pain were used to query a study sample comprising 6123 questionnaire participants about their pain experience. In Paper II, a clinical examination and intraoral photographs helped determine the presence and severity of tooth wear. Information from a questionnaire, patient histories, and participant saliva samples were analyzed regarding tooth wear-related factors. The study sample comprised 831 individuals. Results. Paper I found a prevalence of TMD pain once a week or more often in 11% of the study sample. Related factors were female gender, subjects under 50 years of age, weekly headache, self-reports of poor general health, impaired oral health-related quality of life, and tooth wear. Paper II showed tooth wear in all individuals. Attrition, the most common tooth wear, was found in over 90% of the study sample. Signs of erosion were found in almost 80% of the individuals. Men had more tooth wear than women, but none of the factors that were investigated as related factors differed between the genders. Only some of the individuals, including the group with severe tooth wear reported having received information about tooth wear from their clinician. Participants reported receiving information about tooth wear due to extensive tooth brushing more than about erosion. Conclusions. Paper I found a prevalence of TMD pain in 11% of the study sample. In Paper II, attrition was found in over 90% of the study sample. Almost 80% of the individuals exhibited signs of erosion. Only a few reported having received information about tooth wear due to erosion from their clinician.
