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.

Exploring the oral health experiences of homeless people: a deconstruction–reconstruction formulation
ConclusionsThis qualitative exploration using a deconstruction–reconstruction formulation has added to the understanding of homeless people's oral health awareness and dental treatment access while permitting an examination of the wider socioeconomic and psychosocial issues that disrupt their intentions to attend for treatment. These findings provide service designers and dental professionals with recommendations for the provision of responsive, acceptable and appropriate dental health services for those experiencing homelessness.

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].

Evaluation of the Accuracy of Electronic Foramen Locators in Root Canals with an Obstructed Apical Foramen
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy of electronic foramen locators (EFLs), Root ZX II (RZX; J. Morita, Tokyo, Japan), Propex II (Dentsply Maillefer, Ballaigues, Switzerland), and Apex ID (AID; SybronEndo, Glendora, CA), in root canals with an obstructed apical foramen (OAF) and to compare them with those 1.0 mm short of the apical foramen (AF; −1.0) and at the AF (0.0).

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. The decreasing levels observed as the tissue healed highlights its spatial/temporal significance. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Investigation of optimal orthodontic force at the cellular level through three-dimensionally cultured periodontal ligament cells.

Closure of Oroantral Communication (OAC) with AlloDerm (Regenerative Tissue Matrix) – a case report
Abstract Oroantral communication (OAC) is a routine complication in oral surgery. This can lead to nasal regurgitation, sinus infection if not treated quickly. Multiple techniques are used in managing this condition. Author describes a technique of closing OAC with AlloDerm (regenerative tissue matrix, Biohorizons, USA). The wound healed uneventfully. This technique appears to be a simple and time‐saving technique and can be used by dentists with minimal surgical training. (Source: Oral Surgery)

Drilling Deeper into Toothbrushing Skills: is Proactive Interference an Under-Recognized Factor in Oral Hygiene Behavior Change?
Abstract Proper toothbrushing is a seemingly simple motor activity that can promote oral health. Applying health theories, such as the Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills (IMB) model, motivational interviewing (MI), and integrative health coaching (IHC), may help optimize toothbrushing technique in those with sub-optimal skills. Some motor activities, including toothbrushing, may over time become rote and unconscious actions, such that an existing habit can inhibit new learning, i.e., exert proactive interference on learning the new skill. Proactive interference may impede the acquisition of new toothbrushing...

PRGF exerts a cytoprotective role in zoledronic acid-treated oral cells
Conclusions PRGF shows a cytoprotective role against the negative effects of ZA on primary oral cells. Clinical relevance At present, there is no definitive treatment for bisphosphonates-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ), being mainly palliatives. Our results revealed that PRGF has a cytoprotective role in cells exposed to zoledronic acid, thus providing a reliable adjunctive therapy for the treatment of BRONJ pathology.

Assessment of Body Image and Quality of Sexual Life of Women Using Intraoral Prosthesis: A Follow-Up Study
This study was performed as a crosssectional study. The study sample included 60 women who presented to a prosthodontics department in Turkey. The study data were collected with the Personal Information Form, The Multidimensional Body-Self Relations Questionnaire (MBSRQ) and Sexual Quality of Life Questionnaire-Female (SQLQ-F). After filling in the forms, they were examined by a dentist. Prostheses were made in approximately 15 days and placed (inserted) into the patient’s mouth. The SQLQ-F and MBSRQ were readministered to the women 6 months after they started with their prostheses. The participants’ sexual quality o...

The dental pulp stem cell niche based on aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 expression
ConclusionsDental pulp stem cells reside in the vicinity of blood vessels and nerve fibres, indicating the possible existence of more than one stem cell niche in dental pulps. Furthermore, ALDH1 was expressed by isolated dental pulp cells, which had mesenchymal stem cell characteristics. Thus, it can be suggested that ALDH1 may be used as a DPSC marker.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. (Source: International Endodontic Journal)

Early childhood caries in Switzerland: a marker of social inequalities
Conclusions: This study reported a worrying prevalence rate of ECC among children from 36 to 71 months old, living in French-speaking Switzerland. ECC appears to be a good marker of social inequalities as disadvantaged children, whether from Swiss or immigrant backgrounds, were more likely to have caries than their less disadvantaged peers. Specific preventive interventions regarding ECC are needed for all disadvantaged children, whether immigrants or Swiss. (Source: BMC Oral Health)

Don't Forget To Brush Your Teeth. Seriously.
Brushing twice a day is good for your breath and gums and all, but it also helps out your whole body.  Francesco D’Aiuto, senior lecturer at the Eastman Dental Institute in London, chatted with The Guardian about what he refers to as the the "mouth-body connection," or the idea that a healthy body is strongly correlated with good dental hygiene.  “The mouth is not disconnected from the rest of the body,” he explained. "People should not underestimate what the body senses when the mouth is neglected." What exactly is D'Aiuto referring to when he talks about neglecting the mouth? Gum disease, for ...

3-Dimensional Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Superimposition: A Review
Traditionally, the superimposition of serial, two-dimensional cephalometric radiographs has been used for the evaluation of growth and treatment effects. Nowadays, the superimposition of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images has become an important tool for three-dimensional (3D) assessment of changes with growth or treatment. However, the assessment of changes with 3D image superimposition poses many challenges such as accuracy and reproducibility. Various methods for the reconstruction of 3D CBCT images have been used in diagnosis, treatment planning, and simulation. (Source: Seminars in Orthodontics)

Caries risk assessment in children: how accurate are we?
Conclusions Based on the present summary of literature, it may be concluded: (1) a caries risk assessment should be carried out at the child’s first dental visit and reassessments should be done during childhood (D); (2) multivariate models display a better accuracy than the use of single predictors and this is especially true for preschool children (C); (3) there is no clearly superior method to predict future caries and no evidence to support the use of one model, program, or technology before the other (C); and (4) the risk category should be linked to appropriate preventive care with recall intervals based ...
