Abstract
Oral health-related quality of life, OHRQoL, among elderly is an important concern for the health and welfare policy in Norway and Sweden. The aim of the study was to assess reproducibility, longitudinal validity and responsiveness of the OIDP frequency score. Whether the temporal relationship between tooth loss and OIDP varied by country of residence was also investigated.
In 2007 and 2012, all inhabitants born in 1942 in three and two counties of Norway and Sweden were invited to participate in a self-administered questionnaire survey. In Norway the response rates were 58.0% (4211/7248) and 54.5% (3733/6841) in 2007 and 2012. Corresponding figures in Sweden were 73.1% (6078/8313) and 72.2% (5697/7889), respectively.
Reproducibility of the OIDP in terms of intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC) was 0.73 in Norway and 0.77 in Sweden. The mean change scores for OIDP were predominantly negative among those who worsened, zero in those who did not change and positive in participants who improved change scores of the reference variables; self-reported oral health and tooth loss. General Linear Models (GLM) repeated measures revealed significant interactions between OIDP and change scores of the reference variables (p?

Abstract
To examine whether long-term utilization of dental care, treatment with fillings and crowns and persistent tooth loss between age 50 and 65 years associate with subsequent changes in OHRQoL from age 65 to 70 years.
In 1992, a census of 50-year-olds received invitation to participate in a questionnaire survey. Of 6346 respondents, 3585 completed follow-ups in 1997, 2002, 2007 and 2012. OHRQoL was measured using the Oral Impacts on Daily Performances (OIDP) inventory.
Around 70.4%, 11.2% and 18.4% confirmed respectively, no change, worsening, and improvement in OIDP scores between age 65 and 70 years. Compared to those being permanent non-routine dental attenders, ORs of improving and worsening of OIDP were respectively, 0.4 and 0.6 if being a permanent routine dental attender. ORs for improving OIDP was 1.6 if reporting persistent specialist attendance and 2.5 if having received crowns and fillings. Participants with permanent tooth loss were most likely to both worsen and improve OIDP.
Long-term routine dental attendance and permanent tooth loss occurred as predictors simultaneously for improvement and worsening of OIDP. Accumulation of advantages and disadvantages throughout the life-course increases and decreases the probability of improvement and worsening in OIDP among older people in Sweden.

Abstract
Focusing on 70-year-old adults in Sweden and guided by the conceptual framework of International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities and Handicaps (ICIDH), the purpose of this study was to examine the extent to which socio-demographic characteristics, self-reported oral disease and social/psychological/physical oral health outcome variables are associated with two global measures of self-assessed satisfaction with oral health in Swedish 70-year-olds and if there is a degree of discordance between these global questions.
It has become an important task to create a simple way to measure self-perceived oral health. In these attempts to find practical ways to measure health, the 'global oral health question' is a possible tool to measure self-rated oral health, but there is limited knowledge about how important the wording of this question is.
In 2012, a questionnaire was mailed to all persons born in 1942 in two Swedish counties, Örebro (T) and Östergötland (E). The total population of 70-year-olds amounted to 7889. Bivariate analyses were conducted by cross-tabulation and Chi-square statistics. Multivariate analyses were conducted using binary multiple logistic regression.
The two global oral health question of 70-year-olds in Sweden was mainly explained by the number of teeth (OR=5.6 and 5.2), chewing capacity (OR=6.9 and 4.2), satisfaction with dental appearance (OR=19.8 and 17.3) and Oral Impact on Daily Performance (OIDP) (OR=3.5 and 3.9).
Regardless of the wording, it seems that the concept of a global oral health question has the same main determinants.

Abstract
To explore the association of dental health care utilization with oral impacts on daily performances (OIDP) across time focusing ageing Norwegian and Swedish adults adjusting for predisposing, enabling, and need related-factors as defined by Andersen's model.
Data were based on Norwegian and Swedish 1942 birth-cohorts conducted in 2007 (age 65) and 2012 (age 70). In Norway, the response rates ranged from 54% to 58%. Corresponding figures in Sweden were from 72% to 73%. Self-administered questionnaires assessed OIDP, dental care utilization and predisposing, enabling and need related factors. Logistic regression with robust variance estimation was used to adjust for clustering in repeated data.
Significant covariates of OIDP were satisfaction with dental services, dental care avoidance due to financial constraints, frightening experience with dental care during childhood and patient initiated dental visiting. Frequency and regularity of dental attendance were associated with OIDP in the Swedish cohort, only.
In spite of country differences in the public co-financing of dental care, dental care utilization indicators were associated with OIDP across time in both cohorts. Encouraging regular and dentist initiated visiting patterns and strengthening beliefs in keeping own teeth could be useful in attempts to reduce poor oral health related quality of life in ageing people.

Abstract
BACKGROUND: No studies have tested oral health-related quality of life models in dentate older adults across different populations. OBJECTIVES: To test the factor structure of oral health outcomes within Gilbert's conceptual model among 65-year olds in Sweden and Norway. It was hypothesized that responses to 14 observed indicators could be explained by three correlated factors, symptom status, functional limitations and oral disadvantages, that each observed oral health indicator would associate more strongly with the factor it is supposed to measure than with competing factors and that the proposed 3-factor structure would possess satisfactory cross-national stability with 65-year olds in Norway and Sweden. METHODS: In 2007, 6078 Swedish- and 4062 Norwegian adults borne in 1942 completed mailed questionnaires including oral symptoms, functional limitations and the eight item Oral Impacts on Daily Performances inventory. RESULTS: Model generation analysis was restricted to the Norwegian study group and the model achieved was tested without modifications in Swedish 65-year olds. A modified 3-factor solution with cross-loadings, improved the fit to the data compared with a 2-factor- and the initially proposed 3-factor model among the Norwegian [comparative fit index (CFI) = 0.97] and Swedish (CFI = 0.98) participants. All factor loadings for the modified 3-factor model were in the expected direction and were statistically significant at CR > 1. Multiple group confirmatory factor analyses, with Norwegian and Swedish data simultaneously revealed acceptable fit for the unconstrained model (CFI = 0.97), whereas unconstrained and constrained models were statistically significant different in nested model comparison. CONCLUSIONS: Within construct validity of Gilbert's model was supported with Norwegian and Swedish 65-year olds, indicating that the 14-item questionnaire reflected three constructs; symptom status, functional limitation and oral disadvantage. Measurement invariance was confirmed at the level of factor structure, suggesting that the 3-factor model is comparable to some extent across 65-year olds in Norway and Sweden.

Abstract
A life course perspective recognizes influences of socially patterned exposures on oral health across the life span. This study assessed the influence of early and later life social conditions on tooth loss and oral impacts on daily performances (OIDP) of people aged 65 and 70 years. Whether social inequalities in oral health changed after the usual age of retirement was also examined. In accordance with "the latent effect life course model", it was hypothesized that adverse early-life social conditions increase the risk of subsequent tooth loss and impaired OIDP, independent of later-life social conditions.
Data were obtained from two cohorts studies conducted in Sweden and Norway. The 2007 and 2012 waves of the surveys were used for the present study. Early-life social conditions were measured in terms of gender, education and country of birth, and later-life social conditions were assessed by working status, marital status and size of social network. Logistic regression and Generalized Estimating Equations (GEE) were used to analyse the data. Inverse probability weighting (IPW) was used to adjust estimates for missing responses and loss to follow-up.
Early-life social conditions contributed to tooth loss and OIDP in each survey year and both countries independent of later-life social conditions. Lower education correlated positively with tooth loss, but did not influence OIDP. Foreign country of birth correlated positively with oral impacts in Sweden only. Later-life social conditions were the strongest predictors of tooth loss and OIDP across survey years and countries. GEE revealed significant interactions between social network and survey year, and between marital status and survey year on tooth loss.
The results confirmed the latent effect life course model in that early and later life social conditions had independent effects on tooth loss and OIDP among the elderly in Norway and Sweden. Between age 65 and 70, inequalities in tooth loss related to marital status declined, and inequalities related to social network increased.

Abstract
This study examined the relationship of trajectories in social condition with oral attitudes and major tooth loss, using the social mobility and accumulation life-course models in a cohort. Whether social-condition inequalities remained stable or changed from 65 yr of age to 70 yr of age was investigated. In 1992, 6,346 inhabitants born in 1942 and residing in two Swedish counties agreed to participate in a prospective survey. Of the participants in 1992, 3,585 (47.6% men) completed questionnaires in 1997, 2002, 2007, and 2012. In line with the social-mobility model, the prevalence of negative oral attitudes and major tooth loss in participants at 65 and 70 yr of age showed a consistent gradient according to social-condition trajectory, whereby it was lowest among those who were persistently high and highest among those who were persistently low, with the upwardly and downwardly mobile categories being intermediate. A linear graded association between the number of periods with disadvantaged social condition and oral health supported the accumulation model. Both the social mobility and accumulation life-course models were supported. Social-condition differentials in negative oral attitudes and tooth loss seem to remain stable or to narrow weakly after the usual age of retirement.

Abstract
Few studies have investigated the effect of long-term routine dental attendance on oral health between middle-aged and older adults, using a prospective cohort design. This study aimed to assess routine dental attendance (attending dentist in the previous 12 months for dental checkups) from age 50 to 65 years. Moreover, this study examined whether long-term routine dental attendance contributes to oral health-related quality of life, OHRQoL, and major tooth loss independent of social factors and the type of treatment sector utilized. Whether oral health impacts of long-term routine attendance varied with type of treatment sector utilized was also investigated.
In 1992, a census of the 1942 cohort in two counties of Sweden participated in a longitudinal questionnaire survey conducted at age 50 and again after 5, 10, and 15 years. Information was collected on a wide range of health- and oral health-related aspects. Of the 6346 subjects who completed the 1992 survey, 4143 (65%) completed postal follow-ups in 1997, 2002, and 2007.
Routine dental attendance decreased from 69.1% at age 50-64.2% at age 65. Adjusted logistic regression analyses revealed that individuals reporting long-term routine attendance (routine attendance in both 1992 and 2007) were 0.3 (95% CI 0.2-0.5) times less likely than their counterparts who were nonroutine attenders to report oral impacts. According to generalized estimating equations (GEE), individuals who reported long-term routine attendance were 0.6 (95% CI 0.4-0.7) times less likely than nonroutine attenders to have major tooth loss across the survey years. The effect of long-term routine attendance on OHRQoL was stronger in public than in private dental healthcare attenders.
Routine attendance decreased from age 50-65 years. Long-term routine attendance had positive impact on major tooth loss and OHRQoL supporting the principle of encouraging annual dental attendance for preventive checkups among older people.

Abstract
The aims of this study were to identify explanatory factors of satisfaction with oral health among Norwegian and Swedish 65 year olds in terms of items from four different domains of ICF and to compare the strengths of the various ICF domains in explaining satisfaction with oral health. Further it was to assess whether the explanatory factors of ICF domains vary between Norway and Sweden.
In 2007, standardized questionnaires were mailed to all the residents in certain counties of Sweden and Norway who were born in 1942. Response rates were 73.1% (n = 6078) in Sweden and 56.0% (n = 4062) in Norway.
In total, 33 questions based on four different ICF domains were chosen to explain satisfaction with oral health. Logistic regression showed that four different ICF domains in terms of body function, body structure, activity/participation and environmental factors explained, respectively, 53%, 31%, 12% and 34% of the explanatory variance in the satisfaction with oral health. In the final analysis, only nine items were statistically significant (p

Abstract
This study aimed to assess the stability or change in satisfaction with teeth among Swedish adults between the ages of 50 and 65 yr, and to identify the impact of socio-demographics and of clinical and subjective oral health indicators on participants' satisfaction with teeth during that period. Self-administered standardized questionnaires were used as part of a longitudinal study. In 1992, 1997, 2002, and 2007 all residents (born in 1942) of two Swedish counties were invited to participate in the study. A total of 63% women and 66% men reported being satisfied with their teeth between 50 and 65 yr of age. The corresponding figures, with respect to dissatisfaction, were 7% and 6% respectively. Generalized estimated equation models revealed a decline in the odds of being satisfied with advancing age, which was particularly important in subjects with lower education, tooth loss, and smokers. Consolidation in oral health perceptions starts before age 50, suggesting early intervention before that age. Promotion of a healthy adult lifestyle and improved access to quality oral healthcare might increase the likelihood of people being satisfied with their teeth throughout the third age-period in both genders.
