Endoscopic evaluation of food bolus formation and its relationship with the number of chewing cycles
Summary It is known that solid food is transported to the pharynx actively in parallel to it being crushed by chewing and mixed with saliva in the oral cavity. Therefore, food bolus formation should be considered to take place from the oral cavity to the pharynx. In previous studies, the chewed food was evaluated after the food had been removed from the oral cavity. However, it has been pointed out that spitting food out of the oral cavity interferes with natural food bolus formation. Therefore, we observed food boluses immediately before swallowing using an endoscope to establish a method to evaluate the food bolus‐form...

Cost-effective analysis of topical chlorhexidine in hematologic patients at risk for oral mucositis
Conclusion The results of this study suggest that CHX mouthwash use during anticancer treatment results in an increased survival and decreased cost for the population studied. Using our base-case data, an additional 32 of every 1,000 hemato-oncologic or HSCT patients will survive when employing the preferred strategy of prophylactic CHX mouthwash. Clinical relevance CHX mouthwash should be offered for hematologic patients undergoing HSCT or administered with chemotherapy. (Source: Clinical Oral Investigations)

The in vitro impact of toothpaste extracts on cell viability
Toothpastes contain three main components: detergents, abrasives, and fluoride. Detergents, particularly sodium lauryl sulfate, have been proposed as components that enable toothpastes to produce cytotoxic effects in vitro. However, not all toothpastes contain sodium lauryl sulfate, and almost no studies have found an association between detergents and the in vitro cytotoxicity of toothpastes. The present study examined the in vitro cytotoxicity of nine commercially available toothpastes containing four different detergents. Toothpastes were diluted in serum‐free medium, centrifuged, and filter sterilized. The half‐...

Infantile sucking bruises
A 4-week-old breastfed infant was referred for a child protection medical following his health visitor noticing bruises on his forearm. The family was not known to Social Services. On examination there were two linear bruises 1.5 cm in length parallel to each other on his right forearm (figure 1). No other bruises were seen, and frenum was intact. The infant was admitted to the ward for investigations—full blood count, coagulation, fundoscopy, skeletal survey and head CT scan were all reported as normal. While on the ward, mother and nurses noted baby sucking his forearm forcefully when hungry while being held a...

Topical anaesthetics: What's new?
Topical anaesthetics, often used by anaesthetists, dentists and dermatologists, have increasingly been recognised for their utility in paediatrics. With topical anaesthetics, the ‘ouchless’ paediatric practice becomes an achievable goal. The primary drawback to their use is the length of time for anaesthetic effect, but planning ahead and making use of newer formulations and adjuncts can overcome this barrier. This update will review topical anaesthetic formulations available, adjuncts to reduce the time to anaesthesia, adverse effects, common indications and products on the horizon.

Self‐reported gagging in dentistry: prevalence, psycho‐social correlates and oral health
This study aimed to derive a prevalence estimate of gagging during dental treatment based on patient‐reported information, to determine some socio‐demographic and psychological correlates and to assess the relationship of gagging with self‐reported oral health and avoidance of dental care. Data were collected with a survey among Dutch twin families (n = 11 771). Estimated overall prevalence of gagging during dental treatment was 8·2% (95% CI 7·7–8·7). Patients' self‐report of gagging was found to be significantly associated with female sex, a lower level of education and higher levels of dental trait anxiet...

A Case of Cystadenoma Arising in the Upper Lip.
We report a case of cystadenoma arising in the upper lip region. The patient was a 37-year-old woman referred to our hospital with a painless mass on the left upper lip initially found during treatment at a local dental clinic. The medical history was non-contributory. The 7×5-mm mass was well-defined, elastic, and flexible. The surface of the mucosa appeared healthy. The mass was clinically diagnosed as a benign tumor of the left upper lip. Because the tumor was painless and slow-growing, and magnetic resonance imaging suggested that it was benign, resection was performed under local anesthesia without biopsy. Histopatho...
