Glenoid fossa position in surgically repaired unilateral cleft lip and palate patients
Conclusions: The glenoid fossa is positioned more cranially and anteriorly in UCLP individuals, clinically contributing to the mandibular prominence and concave facial profile inspite of their mandibular length being normal. Steep mandibular planes and increased LAFH reportedly associated with a cranially positioned glenoid fossa is observed in UCLP patients also. (Source: The European Journal of Orthodontics)

Influence of craniofacial and upper spine morphology on mandibular advancement device treatment outcome in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea: a pilot study
Conclusions: The results indicate that BMI, posterior cranial fossa morphology, and retrognathia of the jaws are factors related to MAD treatment outcome. Furthermore, OSA patients with upper spine morphological deviations may respond poorer to MAD treatment. (Source: The European Journal of Orthodontics)

An analysis of residual orthodontic treatment need in municipal health centres
Conclusions: The observed proportion of residual orthodontic treatment need is in line with earlier findings. The high satisfaction with occlusal function reflects the applied selection criteria; orthodontic treatment of displacements causing only aesthetic concern is not prioritized.

Tooth angulation and dental arch perimeter--the effect of orthodontic bracket prescription
Conclusion: Bracket prescriptions with greater angulation led to an increased use of space within the dental arch, mainly in the radicular region. The consequence of this radicular angular displacement will need to be further investigated. (Source: The European Journal of Orthodontics)

A comparative experimental investigation of torque capabilities induced by conventional and active, passive self-ligating brackets
Conclusions: Active self-ligating system manifests the best torque effectiveness. An evident dependence of the torque expression is displayed both on the type of ligation and on the material of the archwire. (Source: The European Journal of Orthodontics)

The design and content of orthodontic practise websites in the UK is suboptimal and does not correlate with search ranking
Conclusions: Most UK websites offering orthodontic services are not fully compliant with national guidelines relating to ethical advertising. Validated measures of website design (LIDA) and information quality (DISCERN) showed wide variation amongst sites. No correlation existed between ranking amongst the highest 25 sites and either of these measures. Limitations: This investigation was limited to a subsample of UK-only websites; and whilst not representative of European-wide sites, it does suggest that in the UK at least website quality can be improved.

Immediate tooth replantation in rats: effect of systemic antibiotic therapy with amoxicillin and tetracycline
Conclusion These results point to the fact that systemic antibiotic therapy (SAT) in immediate tooth replantation is beneficial to pulpal and periodontal ligament repair and that amoxycillin is an excellent option. Clinical relevance There is a lack of randomized studies assessing how the use of systemic antibiotics could influence tooth healing after immediate replantation.

Validity of self-reported periodontal questions in a New Zealand cohort
Conclusion The four self-reported periodontal screening questions performed adequately in identifying clinically determined periodontal disease, and they showed moderate validity when used together as a set. However, the strength of the association between smoking and periodontitis was underestimated when they were used instead of clinically determined periodontal disease. Clinical relevance These findings suggest that clinical examinations remain to be the desired approach for periodontal surveys, but where resource constraints preclude those, self-reported methods can pro...

Daxx and TCF4 interaction links to oral squamous cell carcinoma growth by promoting cell cycle progression via induction of cyclin D1 expression
Conclusion Our data demonstrate the importance of Daxx in regulation of cyclin D1 expression and provide the first evidence that Daxx exhibits tumor-promoting activity in OSCC. Clinical relevance Daxx plays an important role in malignant transformation of OSCC and may serves as a target for cancer prevention and treatment. (Source: Clinical Oral Investigations)

Cross-Nation Comparison of Oral Cancer in the Eastern Mediterranean Region: an Ecological Overview
Abstract Eastern Mediterranean (EM) region countries include countries from the Mediterranean region and North Africa representing regions with wide variations in their politics, economy, peaceful status, and healthcare infrastructure. Commonly known lip and oral cancer risk factors such as consumption of tobacco and alcohol are widely prevalent in the region. Globocan data suggests that age-standardized incidence rates and age-adjusted mortality rates are higher in the region compared to world averages whereas 1-, 2-, and 3-year prevalence proportions are lower. These statistical profiles are generally similar fo...

A case of upper gingiva carcinoma with chronic graft‐versus‐host disease after allogenic bone marrow transplantation
We describe a case of OSCC that developed in a 51‐year‐old male 22 years after he had received allogeneic HSCT from his human leukocyte antigen‐identical sister as a treatment for acute myelocytic leukaemia. The patient had presented with multiple white patchy lesions on the palatal gingiva and mucosa 16 years after HSCT; these lesions were consistent with the clinical features of cGVHD. Six years later, oral examination and biopsy revealed upper gingival squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in areas of cGVHD, and he underwent tumour excision. Follow‐up examination at 2 years and 4 months after the operation revealed ...

Oral health-related quality-of-life among children in Swedish dental care: The impact from malocclusions or orthodontic treatment need.
CONCLUSIONS: This cohort of children reported good self-perceived OHRQoL. Effects on OHRQoL from malocclusions or orthodontic treatment need were limited and inconsistent. Dental fear and headache were found to be more distinct impact factors on OHRQoL than were malocclusions or orthodontic treatment need.

Influence of a hydrophobic resin coating on the immediate and 6-month dentin bonding of three universal adhesives
The new simplified universal adhesives can be used as 2-step etch-and-rinse [ER] or as 1-step self-etch [SE] adhesives. This dual strategy is accomplished by using 1-step SE adhesives associated or not with previous phosphoric acid (PA) etching, which gives dentists a more versatile and attractive adhesive system that can also be used in selective etching mode [1–3].

Preliminary insight into the periostin leverage during periodontal tissue healing.
CONCLUSION: The transient local increase in GCF periostin after eliminating the local etiology in periodontally affected sites suggests its importance in the maturation and stability of the connective tissue.
