The jab, developed by a team of Chinese scientists, offers a dose of proteins that are effective at removing build-ups of plaque responsible for cavities.
Tooth wear refers to the loss of hard tissue caused by means other than dental caries or dental trauma . It is a normal physiological process occurring throughout life. Accelerated tooth wear can cause problems, such as dentine hypersensitivity, pulp exposure and even periapical diseases . Lambrechts et al. reported that the wear depth of natural tooth enamel is 15 –40μm a year in normal circumstances, and that this physiological wear is of great importance for the maintenance of the stomatognathic system’s health .
Conclusions: In this study, higher prenatal fluoride exposure, in the general range of exposures reported for other general population samples of pregnant women and nonpregnant adults, was associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at age 4 and 6–12 y. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP655 Received: 14 June 2016 Revised: 08 May 2017 Accepted: 09 May 2017 Published: 19 September 2017 Please send correspondence to M.

ConclusionThe use of CUAs in evaluation of oral health interventions has been increasing recently, especially from 2011 to 2016. The majority of CUA articles were of good reporting quality as assessed by the CHEERS checklist and were able to provide conclusions regarding the most cost‐effective intervention among the different options compared: this will assist in healthcare decision‐making and resource allocation. These positive outcomes of our study encourage wider use of CUAs within the dental and oral health professions.
Poor oral health afflicts many low-income and other vulnerable populations. Poor oral health can lead to unnecessary tooth decay, periodontal disease, plaque buildup, pain, and even the quiet and deadly advancement of oral cancer. It also leads to unnecessary and expensive visits to the emergency department to treat pain of tooth decay and periodontal disease but not the causal conditions. Finding ways to improve oral health in low-income communities is essential to good health and helping individuals move from poverty to middle class status.
A toothpaste made up of tiny particles of glass has been developed to fight early tooth decay.
Background: Experience and awareness of adult females concerning dental caries is important in its prevention particularly in children because of their natural role as care givers.Objectives: To determine the prevalence of dental caries and treatment needs in an adult female Nigerian population.Methods: In this cross-sectional study, adult females attending outreach programmes were examined for dental caries using the Decayed Missing and Filled Teeth caries index (DMFT). Socio-demographic variables were also recorded and statistical analysis done with SPSS software.Results: A total of 430 females aged 16 to 59 years partic...
INTRODUCTION: Dental caries and trauma are the most common oral health problems for many decades. There is need for prevalence data to analyze the nature of the problems and to take necessary steps in improving public health. AIM AND OBJECTIVES: To assess ...
Conclusions: This study concluded that the use of bonding agent prior to application of pit and fissure sealant does not necessarily aid in retention of sealant as compared to pit and fissure sealant placed without bonding agent, Sealants effectiveness is directly related to its retention and it dependent on application procedures. The failure of retention of pit and fissure sealants can attribute to moisture contamination, improper curing methods, inadequate adhesion, improper application procedure or early age placement.
