dc.description.abstractTilgangur: Markmið þessarar rannsóknar var að meta algengi glerungseyðingar hjá sundíþróttafólki 18 ára og eldra á höfuðborgarsvæðinu. Efniviður og aðferðir: Framkvæmd var samanburðarrannsókn sem samanstóð af 38 þátttakendum í tveimur hópum, tilraunahópi (sundíþróttafólk, N=20) og samanburðarhópi (nemar sem ekki æfa sund, N=18). Glerungseyðing var metin með BEWE index. Allir þátttakendur svöruðu spurningalista varðandi matarvenjur með sérstöku tilliti til neyslu súrra drykkja. Niðurstöður: Enginn marktækur tölfræðilegur munur fannst á milli samanburðarhóps og tilraunahóps þegar meðaltöl BEWE index hópanna voru skoðuð og borin saman. Framtennur í efri- og neðri gómi voru einu svæðin sem sýndu marktækan mun milli hópa, þar sem tilraunahópur sýndi meiri glerungseyðingu fyrir bæði efri og neðri góms framtennur. Samanburðarhópur sýndi hærra meðaltalsgildi á öllum jaxlasvæðum samanborið við tilraunahóp en munurinn var ekki tölfræðilega marktækur. Enginn munur var á milli hópa í neyslu á súrum drykkjum. Ályktun: Niðurstöður benda til aukinnar glerungseyðingar á framtönnum sundíþróttafólks. Fræðslu er þörf fyrir þessa einstaklinga, bæði á vegum íþróttafélaga og tannlækna sem geta bent á fyrirbyggjandi aðferðir til að draga úr hættu á glerungseyðingu tanna.
dc.description.abstractIntroduction: Research has shown that dental erosion in competitive swimmers is common. The process of dental erosion can be rapid if the chlorine content of swimming pools is poorly controlled. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of dental erosion in competitive swimmers 18 years and older in the capital area of Iceland. Materials and methods: A comparative study was made consisting of 38 participants in two groups, a test group (competitive swimmers, N=20) and a control group (college students who were not competitive swimmers, N=18). Dental erosion was evaluated with the BEWE index. All participants answered a questionnaire regarding food habits with a special consideration to acidic drinks. Results: There was no significant difference between the control group and the test group when the average BEWE index of the groups was compared. The anterior teeth in both upper and lower jaws were the only regions with significant difference between the groups, where the test group showed more dental erosion for both the upper and lower anterior teeth. The control group showed higher value in all posterior regions compared to the test group, but the difference was not significant. There was no difference between the groups regarding consumption of acidic drinks. Conclusion: The results indicate that competitive swimmers are more at risk for dental erosion in anterior teeth. Competitive swimmers need to be aware of this risk. Preventive education is needed in the competitive swimming community and dentists should suggest methods to reduce the chances of dental erosion.
