Dental care behaviour in Switzerland

This study assessed the frequency and major reason of dental visits and personal oral hygiene measures in Switzerland, and temporal trends in visit frequency. The number of dental visits in the previous twelve months, the reason for these visits, and the prevalence of oral hygiene measures were quantified from weighted data from the 2012 Swiss Health Survey. The frequency of dental visits in 2012 was compared with previous surveys (1992–2007). Almost two thirds of subjects reported visiting a dentist and almost half had visited a dental hygienist in the previous twelve months. Voluntary (33%) or recall check-ups (25%) were the most common reasons for the last dental visit across age groups. Treatment needs including caries/filling/endodontic treatment (10%), crowns/FDP/RDP/implants (8%), toothache (5%), extraction (5%), periodontal complaints (2%), or orthodontic appliances (2%) were more heterogeneously distributed across age groups. One in ten subjects had dental implants; prevalence increased with increasing age as did the number of missing teeth. Use of interdental cleaning devices and frequent tooth brushing were more common among subjects with few or no missing teeth and among subjects with higher versus lower income or education. Oral health awareness varied with a higher awareness in women than in men and in subjects with higher versus lower income or education. The prevalence of dental implants and dental hygienist’s visits has increased in Switzerland si...

Publication date: February 2020Source: Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, Volume 190Author(s): Rachel C. Croce, Janet J. BoseovskiAbstractResearch indicates that children often show a positivity bias, or a tendency to favor positive information over negative information, in assessments of informant credibility in social and nonsocial situations. The current study investigated whether young children prioritize positive informant traits (i.e., nice vs. mean informant) as compared with positive speech content (i.e., positive vs. negative evaluation) in conflicting assessments of a work product. A total of 123 4- to 8-y...

This study investigates the following question: how does development – specifically socioeconomic and gender equity indicators – affect women’s share of enrollment in specific STEM and STEM-related fields? Merging two sources of national data, we leverage provincial census figures and institutional administrative data to estimate women's enrollment share in STEM as well as in specific fields (i.e., accounting, information technology, and health). Findings show women’s share of STEM and information technology majors is larger outside the capital. Further, socioeconomic development and urbanization in...

Publication date: January–February 2020Source: Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, Volume 66Author(s): Katharine Bailey, Nancie Im-BolterAbstractThe current study investigated contributors to social perspective taking during social problem solving in younger (M = 8.20, n = 111) and older (M = 12.05, n = 112) school-aged children. Results indicated a developmental progression in social perspective taking for different aspects of social problem solving. The findings suggest that social perspective taking is more difficult for some aspects of social problem solving than others. Moreover, syntact...

The objective of this study was to investigate the levels of bioactive amines in eight fresh edible commercial mushrooms species. An ion-pair HPLC method with post-column derivatization with o-phthalaldehyde and fluorescence detection was fit for the purpose. Seven out of nine amines were present and levels varied among species. Spermidine was ubiquitous to mushrooms, with highest content in Black Shimeji (12.4 mg/100 g). The levels of spermidine in mushrooms classify them as high polyamines sources, which is valued due to its association with growth, health promotion and antioxidant properties. Agmatine was ...
