Scardovia wiggsiae and its potential role as a caries pathogen

Conclusion S. wiggsiae was associated with advanced and initial caries, is acid tolerant and produces acid to low pH at initial neutral and low pH conditions. In combination with S. mutans, S. wiggsiae was detected in caries in an animal model. Together, these data suggest that S. wiggsiae has many of the characteristics consistent with its being a caries-associated species.

This study will investigate two types of preformed pediatric crowns for the management of severe decay on primary molars. The results may help practitioners choose the better therapeutic option and to explain to parents the advantages and disadvantages of these two therapies.Trial registrationNCT03296709.

CONCLUSION: Results confirmed existing evidence of the benefit of water fluoridation in caries prevention. Detection criteria set at caries into dentine shows clear differences between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas. Exposure to fluoridated water and socio-economic status were associated with caries prevalence. PMID: 31437389 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Within Wales caries does seem to be distributed in line with an exponential decay curve. As a result decay prevalence and mean d₃mft are mathematically related. This finding may have potential to support simplified local oral health surveillance. The data provides evidence suggesting improvements in caries experience in Wales are not at the expense of increased inequality. PMID: 31436921 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ObjectivesOrthodontic treatment has been suggested to increase the risk of dental caries. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between orthodontic treatment and the likelihood of dental caries.MethodsThe study included data for adults aged  ≥ 19 years who participated in the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in 2013–2015. The participants’ demographic, socio‐economic, and general and oral health‐care data were collected by trained interviewers using a structured questionnaire. The number of decayed te eth (DT) and the decayed, missing and filled teeth ...

A study published in JAMA Pediatrics has given new life to a long-running debate: whether adding fluoride to drinking water is a prudent way to prevent tooth decay, or a potentially toxic mistake. The research, which focused on mother-child pairs from six Canadian cities, found that high fluoride exposure during pregnancy was correlated with lower IQ scores among young children, especially boys. “Based on the current evidence, it is a reasonable recommendation to tell women to reduce their fluoride intake during pregnancy,” says study co-author Christine Till, an associate professor of psychology at York Univer...

This statement updates the FDS position on children's oral health in light of developments since 2015, and sets out a series of recommendations that describe how the government can build upon what has already been achieved. It focuses on three key areas central to eliminating child tooth decay: prevention, access and education.

Conclusion: The high frequencies of caries and missing teeth observed in this population indicate a lack of adequate assistance. It is essential to discuss health care models in order to combat avoidable social and health injustices.RESUMO: Introdu ção: O perfil epidemiológico de cárie dentária dos povos indígenas é complexo e heterogêneo.
