Vitamin D and Dental Caries in Primary Dentition
ConclusionOral health has a significant impact on daily life of these children with hearing impairment and those children having dental diseases showed unfavorable OHRQoL.
AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the perceived impact of dental pain on oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) among children aged 1 –3 years and their families.MethodsA cross-sectional study was conducted with 306 randomly selected preschool and day care children in the city of Diamantina, Brazil. Parents/caregivers answered a questionnaire on socio-demographic information, the Brazilian version of the Early Childhood Oral Health Impact Scale, their child ’s general/oral health and the Brazilian version of the Dental Discomfort Questionnaire. The children underwent an oral examination. Descriptive statist...
This study demonstrates that the NIR SFE can be used to detect early demineralization from sound enamel. In addition, the NIR SFE can differentiate varying severities of demineralization. With its very small form factor and maneuverability, the NIR SFE should allow clinicians to easily image teeth from multiple viewing angles in real-time.
Authors: Mougeot JC, Stevens CB, Almon KG, Paster BJ, Lalla RV, Brennan MT, Mougeot FB Abstract Head and neck cancer (HNC) therapy often leads to caries development. Our goal was to characterize the oral microbiome of HNC patients who underwent radiation therapy (RT) at baseline (T0), and 6 (T6) and 18 (T18) months post-RT, and to determine if there was a relationship with increased caries. HOMINGS was used to determine the relative abundance (RA) of>600 bacterial species in oral samples of 31 HNC patients. The DMFS score was used to define patient groups with tooth decay increase (DMFS[+]) or no increase (...
In conclusion, consistent soda intake during the early childhood led to one additional caries tooth surface. The study highlights utility of TMLE in pe diatric caries research as it can handle modeling challenges associated with longitudinal data.Caries Res
Conclusion: The outcomes showed that there was a significant reduction in S. mutans counts in children's saliva following the application of fluoride and CHX/T varnishes.
Conclusion: Further efforts are required to spread awareness about oral health and encourage the UAE population to develop healthy oral habits. Such programs will decrease the occurrence and burden of many chronic oral diseases especially periodontal diseases. PMID: 30881996 [PubMed - in process]

Introduction:Dental caries and obesity are multifactorial diseases with diet being a common contributory factor. Many studies have reported varied outcomes about the association between dental caries and body mass index. But, there is no published study that investigates this association among female students in Tehran. The main aim of this study was to examine the relationship between dental caries and body mass index (BMI) in a sample of female students in Tehran.Methods:In this cross ‑sectional study, 416 students aged between 10 to 12 years was examined for dental caries using WHO standard diagnostic criteria. The De...
CONCLUSIONS: The evidence of lower bacterial diversity and differences in microbial profile for patients with Kostmann syndrome not only shows the impact of immune system-related diseases on oral microbiota, but also endorses the ecological plaque hypothesis proposed for the aetiology of oral diseases such as dental caries and periodontitis.
