Occurrence of caries and periodontitis in adult persons with overweight/obesity (English)
Abstract [sv]

Övervikt och fetma är ett stort hälsoproblem världen över. År 2008 var cirka 1,5 miljarder vuxna i världen överviktiga. Syftet med litteraturstudien var att undersöka om det finns en ökad förekomst av karies och parodontit hos vuxna personer med övervikt/fetma. Urvalet begränsades till vuxna som var 19 år eller äldre. Studien utfördes i form av en allmän litteraturstudie och materialet samlades in genom sökning i databaserna Pub Med och Science Direkt samt genom manuell sökning. Resultaten sammanställdes utifrån 14 vetenskapliga artiklar.

Två vetenskapliga artiklar visade en ökad förekomst av karies hos personer med övervikt/fetma i jämförelse med personer som var normalviktiga. De andra artiklarna (n=2) som berörde karies hittade inget direkt samband mellan ökad kariesförekomst och övervikt/fetma.

En ökad förekomst av parodontit hittades hos personer med övervikt/fetma i flera studier (n=4) vid jämförelse med normalviktiga deltagare. De resterande studierna (n=6) visade ett samband mellan förekomst av parodontit och personer med övervikt/fetma.

Det tycks finnas en ökad förekomst av parodontit hos personer med övervikt/fetma då olika socioekonomiska faktorer eller andra förhållanden har betydelse. De fåtal artiklar som undersöktes visar att faktorer som kostvanor, saliv och munhygien är avgörande vid kariesförekomst.

Abstract [en]

Overweight and obesity are a huge health problem worldwide. Year 2008 it was about 1,5 billion adults that were overweight. The aim of this study was to investigate if there is an increased occurrence of dental caries and periodontal disease in adults with overweight/obesity. The study was limited to adults that were nineteen years old and above. The material was collected from the databases PubMed and Science Direct and a manual search. These results are based on fourteen scientific articles.

Two scientific articles showed an increased occurrence of dental caries on persons with overweight/obesity compared with people who were normal weighted. The other studies (n=2) did not found a direct correlation between increased caries and overweight/obesity.

The presence of periodontal disease in individuals with overweight/obesity was found to be increased significantly in several studies (n=4) compared to participants with normal weight. The other studies (n=6) showed a relation between occurrence of periodontitis and overweight/obesity.

There seems to be an increased occurence of periodontitis in persons with overweight/obesity as several socio- economic factors or other conditions affect. The few scientific articles that were examined show that factors such as diet, saliva and oral hygiene are important in caries occurrence
