Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of the Swedish moist powder tobacco product known as "snus" on dental caries and to measure the pH fall in dental plaque. The subjects comprised male and female adults between 26 and 62 years of age (n=102), all habitual snus users for >= 10 years. The control group (n=101) consisted of similar individuals in terms of gender, age and educational level but with no tobacco use for >= 10 years. A clinical and radiographic examination and a questionnaire were completed.The pH fall after a sucrose rinse was estimated in situ in 10 randomly selected subjects per group. The salivary secretion rate was higher in snus users than non-users (2.5 vs 2.2 ml/min, p=0.005). There was no statistically significant difference regarding salivary buffer capacity. No differences were found between the two groups in terms of the plaque index, primary or secondary enamel and dentine caries, DFS and salivary counts of mutans streptococci or lactobacilli. The pH fall was somewhat more pronounced among non-users compared with snus users (NS). Snus users had a lower intake of snacks between meals and a less frequent intake of cookies (p=0.000). Furthermore, snus users had a mean gingival index (+/- SD) for the whole dentition of 20.4 +/- 18.2, while the index for non-users was14.4 +/- 13.9 (p=0.009); the corresponding values for teeth 13-23 were 14.9 +/- 20.6 and 7.7 +/- 11.9 respectively (p=0.003). To conclude, this clinical study revealed no statistically significant differences in caries prevalence between snus users and non-users and only minor differences regarding different cariesassociated factors.

Abstract [en]

Aim: This study examined the prevalence of tobacco habits and the influence of the social environment among Swedish female athletes representing both individual and team sports in Sweden. Material and method: A self-reported cross-sectional survey was performed with 791 female athletes 15-24 years old representing ten of the most common sports in Sweden. The questions related to the participants' involvement in sports and their tobacco habits. Results: Findings revealed that a large proportion of the female athletes had never smoked (65%) or used snus (74%). However, a considerable portion of the participants had tried smoking (27%) or using snus (20%), especially those involved in team sports. Results also showed statistically significant associations between female athletes' smoking habits and those of both their mothers and their peers, but not with the tobacco habits of their coaches, indicating that coaches do not influence the female athletes' use of tobacco. Conclusion: In conclusion, this study indicated that the vast majority of female athletes did not use tobacco. A significant portion had sometimes tried tobacco, especially members of team sports, but this behaviour did not seem to be influenced by the tobacco habits of their coaches.

Abstract [en]

Objective. The aim of this study was to evaluate some intra-oral caries-associated variables and tobacco use on dental caries. Materials and methods. The participants were randomly recruited from three cross-sectional studies in Jönköping, Sweden, in 1983, 1993 and 2003. Each study consisted of 130 individuals in each of the 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70-year age groups. Of these, 550, 552 and 523 dentate individuals attended respective year of examination. They were all examined both clinically and radiographically. A questionnaire was completed in conjunction with the examination. In the studies, 345 were smokers, 104 snus users and 1142 non-tobacco users, in total 1591 individuals. Results. In 1983 and 1993, there were no significant differences in mean DFS between non-users and smokers, but a statistically significantly higher mean DFS in comparison with snus users. In 2003, there was no statistically significant difference in mean DFS between the groups. Multiple regressions showed that, after adjusting for age, gender and socio-demographic variables, there was a statistically significant association between DFS and smoking in 1983 (smoking excluded in favour of lactobacilli when further analysed) and DFS and plaqueindex (PLI) in 1993. In 2003, there was no association, apart from buffer capacity (Power rising) between DFS and the examined intra-oral caries-associated variables and tobacco use. Conclusions. The results of these epidemiological studies, performed in 1993 and 2003, indicate that daily smoking or snus use does not increase the risk of dental caries.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att utvärdera pH-förändringar i plack in vivo vid användning av olika nikotinfritt och nikotinhaltigt snus. Kolhydratinnehållet i produkterna analyserades också. Tio deltagare, alla snusanvändare, deltog i en experimentell tvärsnittsstudie, vid elva tillfällen, med en veckas mellanrum. Sex nikotinfria och fyra nikotininnehållande produkter på den svenska marknaden ingick i studien och en sackaroslösning användes som kontroll. Deltagarna borstade inte tänderna under tre dagar innan besöket och avstod från att äta, dricka och snusa/röka två timmar före varje test. pH mättes i tre approximalrum upp till 45 minuter med snusprodukten placerad under överläppen. De nikotininnehållande produkterna innehöll endast spår av glukos, fruktos och sackaros (0.5-1%) och stärkelse (1.5%), medan de nikotinfria produkterna innehöll upp till 6.5 % lågmolekylära kolhydrater och 26.0 % stärkelse. Resultatet av pH-mätningarna i plack visade att alla fyra nikotininnehållande produkter höjde pH, till skillnad från tre av de sex nikotinfria produkterna, som sänkte pH betydligt. Dessa pH-förändringar i plack kan ha såväl positiv som negativ effekt på kariesrisken beroende på vilken produkt som används

Abstract [en]

The aim was to investigate pH changes in plaque in vivo during the use of nicotine-free and nicotine-containing snus. The carbohydrate content of the products was also analysed. Ten subjects, all regular snus users, participated in an experimental cross-over study, on eleven occasions with an interval of one week. Six nicotine-free and four nicotine-containing products, which are sold on the Swedish market, were included and a sucrose solution was used as a control. The subjects did not brush their teeth for three days before coming to the laboratory, without eating, drinking or using snus/smoking for two hours prior to the test. pH was measured at three approximal sites up to 45 min with the test product placed under the upper lip. The carbohydrate analysis showed that the nicotine-containing products contained only traces of glucose, fructose and sucrose (0.5-1%) and starch (approximate to 1.5%). Some of the nicotine-free products contained up to 6.5% low-molecular-weight carbohydrates and 26.0% starch. The intraoral pH measurements showed that four nicotine-containing products increased the plaque pH, in contrast to three of the six nicotine-free products, which lowered the pH. These pH changes may have an effect on the caries risk, both positively and negatively, depending on which product is used.

AbstractAim: The aim of the present study was to examine how deleterious current smokingand the use of Swedish moist snuff (snus) is for periodontal health compared with nontobaccousers.Materials and Methods: The studies comprised three epidemiological crosssectionalstudies, in 1983, 1993 and 2003, of stratified random samples aged 20, 30, 40,50, 60 and 70 years. The numbers of dentate participants were 550, 552 and 523,respectively. The participants were examined clinically and radiographically.Diagnostic criteria were the number of teeth, plaque, gingival status, probing pocketdepth (PPD)X4 mm, height of the alveolar bone level and classification by periodontaldisease experience. In addition, participants were asked about their tobacco habits.Results: Multiple logistic regression shows, after adjusting for age, gender andsociodemographic variables, that relative to non-tobacco users, cigarette smokers hadstatistically significant less gingivitis, a higher frequency of PPDX4mm and a higherincidence of severe periodontitis. There was no significant association betweengingivitis, frequency of PPDX4mm and periodontal disease experience and snus use.Conclusions: Cigarette smokers were found to have a statistically significant higherrisk of severe periodontitis than non-tobacco users and users of snus. Using snus didnot seem to be a risk factor for periodontitis

Abstract

Abstract: Objectives: The aim of this study was to describe

the use of tobacco and changes in its use over time among

individuals living in Jo¨nko¨ping, Sweden, and to analyse

tobacco habits in relation to socioeconomic conditions,

personality aspects and dental care habits. Methods: This

study comprised three epidemiological cross-sectional

studies, involving a random selection of individuals aged

between 15 and 70 years, and was conducted in 1983, 1993

and 2003. The participants were asked to complete a

questionnaire. Results: The results revealed a statistically

significant reduction from 34% tobacco users in 1983 to 27%

in 1993 and 28% in 2003. The main decrease was seen

among smokers. At the same time, the number of users of

snuff increased in all the age groups between 20 and

60 years of age. The use of tobacco was therefore largely

unchanged in 1993 and 2003. In 2003, there was a

statistically significant difference between users and nontobacco

users when it came to the frequency of dental visits;

more tobacco users than non-tobacco users did not visit a

dentist at all or did not visit a dentist regularly. In 1993, nontobacco

users brushed their teeth more frequently than

tobacco users and this difference was statistically

significant. Conclusions: During the 20-year study, there was

a reduction in the number of smokers and an increase in the

number of snuff users. There was a difference between

tobacco users and non-tobacco users when it came to the

frequency of dental visits and oral hygiene habits
