Community-based population-level interventions for promoting child oral health

Cochrane Public Health GroupDOI:10.1002/14651858.CD009837.pub2 AbstractBackgroundDental caries and gingival and periodontal disease are commonly occurring, preventable chronic conditions. Even though much is known about how to treat oral disease, currently we do not know which community-based population-level interventions are most effective and equitable in preventing poor oral health.ObjectivesPrimary• To determine the effectiveness of community-based population-level oral health promotion interventions in preventing dental caries and gingival and periodontal disease among children from birth to 18 years of age.Secondary• To determine the most effective types of interventions (environmental, social, community and multi-component) and guiding theoretical frameworks.• To identify interventions that reduce inequality in oral health outcomes.• To examine the influence of context in the design, delivery and outcomes of interventions.Search methodsWe searched the following databases from January 1996 to April 2014: MEDLINE, Embase, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), the Education Resource Information Center (ERIC), BIOSIS Previews, Web of Science, the Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE), ScienceDirect, Sociological Abstracts, Social Science Citation Index, PsycINFO, SCOPUS, ProQuest Dissertations&Theses and Conference Proceedings Citation I...

The objective of this analysis was to describe and compare total sugars consumption among Canadians in 2004 and 2015. DATA AND METHODS: Data are from the 2004 and 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey-Nutrition. Separate descriptive analyses of total sugars for children aged 2 to 18 (n=13,919) and adults aged 19 and older (n=31,156) were conducted by year and by misreporting status (under-, plausible and over-reporters), and the top sources of total sugars were identified. Misreporting status was studied to better understand differences in sugars intakes between survey years. T-tests were used to determine significant ...

CONCLUSION: The data show that the digital treatment control for therapy decisions made by the physician is highly relevant and established. Therapy compliance is improved and possible complications such as headache due to medication overuse are reduced. At the same time, a significant improvement of headache parameters and a marked overall improvement of treatment quality, amongst other things due to more easily available information and self-help tools can be observed.

Herein, a rapid surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) method is proposed to determine the activity of urease by using inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) stabilized silver nanoparticles (AgNPs@IP6) as an efficient SERS-active substrate. The determination was achieved by monitoring the SER...

This study involved a total of 200 children who were divided into five groups comprising of 40 children each. Group SP included children who received prophylactic penicillin, Group SV who received pneumococcal vaccination, Group SPV who received both prophylactic penicillin and pneumococcal vaccination, Group SW who did not receive any prophylactic therapy and Group CC who were controls. Stimulated saliva samples from volunteers were collected and cultured in Mitis Salivarius Bacitracin (MSB) agar for estimation ofStreptococcus mutans.
