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]

In conclusion, the extended Cox modeling was used for the first time and its results showed a significant global/overall relationship between MS acquisition and dental caries. Further research using causal mediation analysis with survival data is necessary, where the mediator “presence of MS” is treated as a time-dependent variable.Caries Res 2018;52:246-252

Journal of Dental SciencesAvailable online 17 January 2018In Press, Corrected Proof—Note to usersAbstractBackground/purposeStreptococcus mutans is an important pathogen in the development of dental caries. Many studies have focused on the relationship between nicotine andS. mutans in vitro. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of nicotine on the growth ofS. mutans and its cariogenic potentialin vivo.Materials and methodsSixteen male Specific-pathogen-free Wistar rats were divided into 2 groups (nicotine-treated and nicotine-untreated group) and infected withS. mutans.

by Olivier Duverger, Jenna C. Carlson, Chelsea M. Karacz, Mary E. Schwartz, Michael A. Cross, Mary L. Marazita, John R. Shaffer, Maria I. Morasso Pachyonychia congenita (PC) is a cutaneous disorder primarily characterized by nail dystrophy and painful palmoplantar keratoderma. PC is caused by mutations inKRT6A,KRT6B,KRT6C,KRT16, andKRT17, a set of keratin genes expressed in the nail bed, palmoplantar epidermis, oral mucosal epithelium, hair follicle and sweat gland. RNA-seq analysis revealed that all PC-associated keratins (except forKrt6c that does exist in the mouse genome) are expressed in the mouse enamel organ. We fu...

In conclusion, the use of Internet data mining could be helpful in establishing the dental needs of specific population groups in a near real-time, since the web consumption of dental information is increasing in importance and appears to have a direct relation with untreated dental caries.Caries Res 2018;52:177-188

Research on the association between dental caries and body mass index (BMI) in children has shown contradictory results; thus we aimed to examine the association between dental caries and the full range of BMI classes among children. We comprehensively searched PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library for studies published prior to March 2017. Articles comparing dental caries among the full range of BMI classes for children below 18 years of both genders were included. Fourteen studies were eligible for this study. Basic information - i.e., first author, published year, study design, country, sample size, age, type of dent...
