Are overweight/obese children at risk of traumatic dental injuries? A meta‐analysis of observational studies
ConclusionThe choice to increase internal and external validity levels decreased the precision of the pooled OR (i.e., confidence intervals were relatively wide). The statistically significant overweight/obesity‐TDI association, together with the so‐called counterfactual condition (i.e., TDI prevalence was higher among overweight/obese children than among lean children), suggests that causal association between these two conditions is plausible.

Evaluation of antimicrobial effectiveness and dentine mechanical properties after use of chemical and natural auxiliary irrigants
Conclusion CHX and GSE were more effective than NaOCl and QMix against E. faecalis. Furthermore, they did not harm dentine mechanical properties as observed for NaOCl and QMix. Clinical significance : The use of GSE can be recommended for endodontic procedures since it has good antimicrobial activity and does not interfere in the mechanical properties of dentine; similarly to CHX.

Use of a light cured periodontal surgical dressing material in temporization: A convenient approach
This report describes the use of a periodontal surgical dressing material (PSD) as a quick solution in such situations, utilizing it for short term temporization till the indirect provisional is fabricated. PSD's may be used for short term temporization in cases where the need of indirect temporization requires a patient to go without a provisional for a few days or the definitive restoration can be delivered in a very short span of time. It also opens up the possibility of single sitting abutment reduction at the time of periodontal surgery, using the pack for a dual purpose-healing & temporization. (Source: Journ...

Detection and treatment of proximal caries lesions: milieu-specific cost-effectiveness analysis
Conclusions Caries detection methods should be evaluated regarding the cost-effectiveness resulting from their use in different populations. Clinical significance: Caries detection methods are usually evaluated regarding their validity compared to a gold standard. We demonstrate that the cost-effectiveness stemming from using different detection methods additionally depends on the treatment options determined by different methods, and the examined population. Dentists’ choice of a detection method should not only be guided by its validity, but also by its specific benefits in different populations. (Source: Journal of Dentistry)

Remineralization Therapies for Initial Caries Lesions
Abstract This is a review of the latest scientific advances in technologies for effective management of initial (non-cavitated) caries lesions. The increasing emphasis on preventive and minimal intervention dentistry coupled with the established higher prevalence of non-cavitated caries compared to cavitated tooth surfaces is encouraging nonsurgical management of early caries among the practicing dentists. Thus, there is need for effective treatment strategies to facilitate non-operative care of initial caries lesions (remineralization). The new strategies should either facilitate fluoride action, work better than...

Resin Coating Technique for Protection of Pulp and Increasing Bonding in Indirect Restoration
Abstract A resin coating technique has been widely advocated in recent years. A combination of a dentin bonding system and a flowable composite is applied on the exposed dentin surfaces immediately after tooth preparation and before taking the final impression. The resin coating is beneficial to both minimize pulpal irritation and enhance the bond strength of a resin cement to dentin. Recently introduced thin-film coating materials based on all-in-one adhesive technology are used for resin coating of crown restorations. Thin-film coating materials can be applied in a single clinical procedure and followed by creat...

A study of the provision of hospital based dental General Anaesthetic services for children in the North West of England: Part 2 - the views and experience of families and dentists regarding service needs, treatment and prevention
Conclusion: These findings suggest the need and perceived value of: tailored services for children (such as play specialists) and improved information, such as clear guidance regarding wait times and what is to be expected on the day of the procedure. These features were viewed to be helpful in alleviating the stress and anxiety often associated with DGA. While some elements will always be restricted in part to the hospital setting in which they occur, there are several aspects where best practice could be shared amongst hospitals and, where issues such as wait times have been acknowledged, alternative pathways can be expl...

Oral health among the elderly in 7 Latin American and Caribbean cities, 1999-2000: a cross-sectional study
Conclusions: The prevalence of missing teeth, use of bridges and dentures and unmet dental needs were high in the SABE cities in 1999-2000. In general across the SABE cities, the elderly with the most missing teeth were less educated or less likely to be a professional. They tended to be not working and were receiving a pension. Additionally they were less likely to report their health as ‘excellent’, were diabetic and were more likely to give responses suggestive of depression. (Source: BMC Oral Health)
