Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka upplevelser av munhälsa hos äldre personer som var medlemmar i olika pensionärsföreningar samt jämföra om det fanns skillnader mellan män och kvinnor.

Material och metod: Studien har utförts som en kvantitativ tvärsnittsundersökning och data har samlats in hos olika pensionärsföreningar i nordöstra Skåne. En enkät lämnades ut till 202 pensionärer som deltog i studien.

Resultat: De flesta var nöjda med sina tänder. Kvinnor (68 %) uppgav att de tuggade all sorts mat mycket bra i jämförelse med männen (45 %) (p=0, 006P() var stor skillnad istatis är). Det största problem som förekom hos pensionärerna var muntorrhet.

Konklusion: De äldre som deltog i denna studie upplevde sin munhälsa positivt. Bland de problem som förekom var muntorrhet vanligast.

Aim: The aims of this study were to investigate the experiences of oral health in elderly individuals who were members in various pensioners' associations, and to compare if there were differences between men and women.

Materials and methods: The study was conducted as a quantitative cross-sectional survey in various pensioners' associations in north-eastern Skåne, Sweden. A questionnaire was handed out to 202 pensions who participated in the study.

Result: Most of the elderly were satisfied with their teeth. Sixty eight percent of the women indicated that they could chew at all kinds of food very well as compared to 45 % of the men (p = 0. 006). The main oral health problem was dry mouth.

Conclusion: The elderly that participated in this study perceived their oral health as being good. A frequent complaint that occurred was dry mouth.
