Attitude and experience in oral care in a group of adults with a foreign background in Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med denna kvalitativa studie var att studera attityder och erfarenheter om munhygien hos en grupp vuxna med utländsk bakgrund i Sverige. Material och Metod: Intervjuer utfördes med tio informanter på en SFI-utbildning i Sverige. En frågeguide med öppna frågor användes. Intervjuerna utfördes på svenska och engelska. Resultat: Det visade sig att det fanns ett antal bidragande faktorer till informanternas attityder och erfarenheter kring munhygien. Dessa faktorer/subkategorier ingick under fem huvudkategorier. Huvudkategorierna var hälsomedvetenhet, motivation, social påverkan, pris och munhygienrutiner. Informanterna ansåg att det var svårt att bryta gamla vanor. De var vana vid att använda både tandborste och Miswak, men de var inte vana vid approximal rengöring. Slutsatser: Tandvårdspersonal bör vara lyhörd för vad migranter kan och tycker, men även kunna delge inflyttande information om svenska tandvårdskulturen på ett bra sätt.

Abstract [en]

The aim: The aim of this qualitative study was to study the attitudes and experiences about oral care in a group of adults with a foreign background in Sweden. Method: Interviews were conducted with ten informants on a SFI training in Sweden. An interview guide with open questions was used. The interviews were conducted in Swedish and English. Results: There were a number of contributing factors to the informants’ knowledge, attitudes and experiences regarding oral hygiene. These factors were termed as subcategories and were listed below five main categories. The main categories were health awareness, motivation, social influence, prices and oral hygiene practices. The informants felt that it was difficult to break old habits. They were accustomed to using both toothbrush and Miswak, but not inter dental cleaning aids. Conclusions Dental professionals should be sensitive to the knowledge and the capabilities of migrants but also be able to convey the Swedish dental culture in a good way.
