Antimicrobial activity in vitro of Camu-Camu (Myrciaria Dubia) against oral microorganisms: a systematic review.

CONCLUSIONS.: There is evidence of antimicrobial activity in M. dubia. Its study as an antimicrobial against oral microorganisms is still incipient, but there is great potential thanks to the potent phytochemicals it contains. Also, additional quality studies are required: comparing their activity versus oral antiseptics and on microorganisms associated with dental caries and periodontal disease.

Abstract Prevention and health promotion are considered important strategies to control oral diseases. Dental caries is preventable disease and remains the most common chronic disease that affects mainly low income children and still considered the main cause of tooth loss in adulthood in Brazil. The aim of this study is to present a System Dynamics model (SDM) specifically developed with the Stella Architect software to estimate the cost and clinical hours required to control the evolution of dental caries in preschool children in Maring á, Brazil. Two main strategies to control caries were considered in the model:...

ConclusionsThe mean cost of a child avoiding any dental pain and/or infection (incidence) was £330 and the mean cost per episode of dental pain and/or infection avoided was £130. At these thresholds B + P has the highest probability of being considered cost-effective. Over the willingness to pay thresholds considered, the probability of B + P being considered cost-effective nev er exceeded 75%.

Abstract Human dentine is a mineralised dental tissue that consists of dentinal tubules surrounded by two distinct dentinal phases: peritubular dentine (PTD) and intertubular dentine (ITD). Dental caries, which manifests itself as a consequence of demineralisation, is one of the most common chronic diseases that affect the function of human teeth. Due to the difference in the packing density of crystallites, PTD and ITD exhibit different reaction rates to acid dissolution. The present study evaluates how the effective Young's modulus degrades and how the effective stress redistributes in demineralised human dentin...

Publication date: December 2020Source: Japanese Dental Science Review, Volume 56, Issue 1Author(s): Yumiko Kawashita, Sakiko Soutome, Masahiro Umeda, Toshiyuki SaitoSummaryRadiotherapy, often with concomitant chemotherapy, has a significant role in the management of head and neck cancer, however, radiotherapy induces adverse events include oral mucositis, hyposalivation, loss of taste, dental caries, osteoradionecrosis, and trismus, all of which have an impact on patients’ quality of life. Therefore, it is necessary to implement oral management strategies prior to the initiation of radiotherapy in patients with head ...

Grant, Harleen Kaur, Afrozul Haq, Mohammed S. RazzaqueAbstractAdequate nutrition is essential for maintaining good oral health. Minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus found in the diet constitute the main structural components of the tooth. Their inadequacy leads to absorption impairment, increased bleeding tendency, bone resorption, looseness, and premature tooth loss. Inadequacy of those essential minerals is associated wi...

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Mummolo S, Sapio S, Falco A, Vittorini OL, Quinzi V Abstract The aim of this study is to evaluate the success of functional rehabilitation of one dental session in patients with severe disabilities such as severe autism, baby bottle syndrome and severe odontophobia, and to assess how patient compliance pre- and post-intervention changes in moderate sedation. Between the beginning of 2016 and the end of 2018, 20 pedodontic patients with severe odontophobia, severe autism and baby bottle syndrome who needed dental treatment came to our attention. Patients were aged between 3 and 12 years, ...
