Caries prevention for young children

Dental health in Sweden has improved significantly in recent decades, but this improvement is not equally distributed in society. Children who grow up under socio-economically disadvantaged conditions are five times more likely to suffer from caries than children with better living conditions. Furthermore, in recent years the proportion of six-year-olds with caries disease is increasing nationally for the first time since the 1960s. In my research, I study the need for caries prevention in the population and how caries prevention should be designed to reach and act supportive for the children and families with the greatest need.
