The caries experience of 5 year-old children in Scotland in 2013-2014, and in England and Wales in 2014-2015. Reports of cross-sectional dental surveys using BASCD criteria.

CONCLUSION: Inter-country comparisons provide further oral health intelligence despite differences in approach and timing. The third surveys in England and Wales using the new consent arrangements have enabled trend analysis. Dental health inequalities gradients were shown across all geographies and all of the indicators of inequality. PMID: 28872810 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Szkaradkiewicz-Karpinska AK, Zeidler A, Goslinska-Kuzniarek O, Uram K, Szkaradkiewicz A Abstract A previous study shows that levels of acidic salivary proline-rich phosphoproteins-1/2 (APRP-1/2) increase with caries severity. The aim of this study was to examine whether this relationship also depends on the presence of H2O2-producing strains of Lactobacillus spp. Adults with severe caries (decayed, missing, and filled teeth (DMFT)> 13.9, n = 28) were compared with similarly aged adults who had minimal caries (DMFT

ConclusionsThis study points out potential oral health risk factors in children with early-detected externalising behaviour problems. Although no difference in caries prevalence was observed, externalising behaviour may affect oral health. Therefore, dental professionals should support the families and the children to preserve dental health by offering increased prophylactic measures. There were no differences between children with externalising behaviour problems, compared with controls, regarding the parent evaluation of their child ’s dental health. However, more parents in the study group evaluated the dental car...
