Cost-effectiveness of child caries management: a randomised controlled trial (FiCTION trial)

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%.

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, ...

International&American Associations for Dental Research Alexandria, VA, USA - 2019 marks the Centennial of theJournal of Dental Research (JDR). Over the last century theJDR has been dedicated to the dissemination of new knowledge and information on all sciences relevant to dentistry and to the oral cavity and associated structures in health and disease. To celebrate, theJDR is featuring a yearlong, commemorative article and podcast series that highlights topics that have transformed dental, oral and craniofacial research over the past 100 years. The importance and value of behavioral sciences in dentistry has long been...

CONCLUSION: Dental caries was highly prevalent among this population and urgent action is required to reduce the population burden of this disease. Malnutrition, which was not measured for this study, is highly prevalent among children in Timor-Leste and could explain the high caries rates in this population. The effect of malnutrition on dental caries and vice-versa needs further investigation. Programs and policies are urgently needed for oral health promotion and also the prevention and management of dental caries in Timorese children. These strategies should also address the urgent need for emergency dental services ai...

The diagnosis and management of pain is an everyday occurrence in dentistry, and its effective control is essential to ensure the wellbeing of patients. Most tooth-associated pain originates from the dental pulp, a highly vascularized and innervated tissue, which is encased within mineralized dentin. It plays a crucial role in the sensing of stimuli from the local environment, such as infections (i.e. dental caries) and traumatic injury, leading to a local inflammatory response and subsequently to an increase in intra-pulp pressure, activating nerve endings. However, thermal, chemical, and mechanical stimuli also have the ...

According to the World Health Organization, dental caries remains a major oral health problem in most industrialized countries, affecting 60% to 90% of schoolchildren and the vast majority of adults. Caries is the most prevalent oral disease causing major public health problems. The impact on individuals, families, and communities, as a result of pain and suffering, impairment of function, and reduced quality of life, is substantial. Moreover, the traditional surgical treatment for caries is extremely costly; it is the fourth most expensive disease to treat in most industrialized countries.

CONCLUSIONS: Given the high risk of bias in the available studies and lack of consistency between different outcome measures, there is no reliable evidence that application of ozone gas to the surface of decayed teeth stops or reverses the decay process. There is a fundamental need for more evidence of appropriate rigour and quality before the use of ozone can be accepted into mainstream primary dental care or can be considered a viable alternative to current methods for the management and treatment of dental caries.

ConclusionsThe presence of dental caries should be mentioned in the radiology report. The prevalence of untreated dental caries is higher in our cohort than reported in the general population, and dental caries are underreported by neuroradiologists at our institution. A paradigm for reporting and management was created upon collaboration with faculty from the University of Vermont Dental and Oral Health practice. A visit with a dentist should be recommended within 6  months if caries are limited to the enamel, within 3 months if caries involve the dentin, and within 2 weeks if caries extend in to the pulp. ...

AbstractAimTo determine the influence of erosive tooth wear in the primary dentition on parental perceptions of oral health.MethodsThis cross-sectional study involved a standardised clinical examination of 775  preschool aged children and a parent-administered questionnaire. Erosive tooth wear was measured using the Basic Erosive Wear Examination Index.Results71% and 81% of 3 (n  = 256) and 5 year-old children (n = 337) respectively exhibited signs of erosive tooth wear. Prevalence was influenced by region (p = 0.049) (p = 0.007) in both age cohorts (χ2, p
