Synthesis of wrinkled mesoporous silica and its reinforcing effect for dental resin composites

Dental resin-based composites have been widely used as hard tissue substitutes to restore dental caries and other defects since the early 1960s, thanks to their superior aesthetics and biocompatibility over dental amalgams [1 –4]. These composites are primarily comprised of inorganic filler particles dispersed in a resin matrix which can be polymerized under a blue light irradiation. Despite recent advances in the optimization of monomer structures and filler compositions, the fracture of resin composite restorations i s still one of the main causes for failure in clinical applications, which prevents their applications in high-load and large area restorations [5–8].

Conclusions A successful method has been developed to monitor real-time demineralization in 3 dimensions. Further work is now needed to create better models of true carious lesions. Clinical Significance Observation of the dynamics of demineralization and remineralization will aid in the development of therapies to treat and prevent dental caries.

Authors: Sekita Y, Murakami K, Yumoto H, Hirao K, Amoh T, Fujiwara N, Hirota K, Fujii H, Matsuo T, Miyake Y, Kashiwada Y Abstract Dental biofilms that form in the oral cavity play a critical role in the pathogenesis of several infectious oral diseases, including dental caries, periodontal disease, and oral candidiasis. Houttuynia cordata (HC, Saururaceae) is a widely used traditional medicine, for both internal and external application. A decoction of dried HC leaves (dHC) has long been consumed as a health-promoting herbal tea in Japan. We have recently reported that a water solution of HC poultice ethanol extract...

The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship of dental caries with anthropometric outcomes in 4- to 6-year-old children participating in the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES). The sample size was 1,910 children from the 4th and 5th KNHANES. The caries status was assessed with the decayed and filled teeth index in primary dentition (dft score). We employed height for age, body weight for age, and body mass index for age as outcome variables. Age, gender, region, and income were confounders. Nutritional deficiency as a mediator in the association between dental caries and delayed g...

In conclusion, socioeconomic factors were consistently associated with dental caries experience in the children and adolescents both as single factors and as multiple factors combined in an index. Socioeconomic inequalities had stronger associations to caries experience in young children than in older children and adolescents.Caries Res 2018;52:42-50

ConclusionsThe findings of our study suggest that parental occupation affects the prevalence of dental caries in children. We confirm that higher levels of parental education and household income decreased the prevalence of dental caries.

Background: Dental caries is the most common chronic oral disease, affecting 2.4 billion people worldwide who on average have 2.11 decayed, missing, or filled teeth. It impacts the quality of life of patients, socially and economically. However, the comprehension of dental caries may be difficult for most people, as it involves a multifactorial etiology with the interplay between the tooth surface, the dental biofilm, dietary fermentable carbohydrates, and genetic and behavioral factors. Therefore, the production of effective materials addressed to the education and counseling of patients for the prevention of dental carie...

In conclusion, although the presence of moderate and extensive lesions at baseline is a significant predictor for cavitated caries increment after 2 years in preschool children at all ages, the presence of only initial caries lesions is also associated, but with less severe caries incidence.Caries Res 2018;52:32-41

CONCLUSION: Dental caries was not associated with BMI but age significantly influenced the DMFT index and gender was associated with more missing teeth. Further longitudinal studies with larger cohorts from several geographic regions are warranted. LIMITATION:Convenience sampling and recruitment from a single dental center may have some impact on the generalization of data.
