Abstract This systematic review compared the oral health status between institutionalized and non-institutionalized elders. The following electronic databases were searched: PubMed (Medline), Scopus, Web of Science, Lilacs and Cochrane Library, in a comprehensive and unrestricted manner. Electronic searches retrieved 1687 articles, which were analyzed with regards to respective eligibility criteria. After reading titles and abstracts, five studies were included and analyzed with respect their methodological quality. Oral status of institutionalized and non-institutionalized elderly was compared through meta-analysis. Inclu...

Tooth decay (dental caries) is a widespread human disease caused by microbial biofilms. Streptococcus mutans, a biofilm-former, has been consistently associated with severe childhood caries; however, how this bacterium is spatially organized with other microorganisms in the oral cavity to promote disease remains unknown. Using intact biofilms formed on teeth...

ABSTRACT If essential care is thorough, teeth with extensive orthodontically induced dental resorption can have the same endurance as normal teeth. These teeth are subjected to the same disturbances as normal ones, such as dental trauma, dental caries and periodontal disease, all of which are independent of severe dental resorption. Orthodontic retreatments of teeth presenting with extensive orthodontically induced dental resorption must take into consideration that these roots are shorter in length, therefore, they are more prone to root resorption. Conventional movements are not viable in severe resorption, but Orthodont...

ConclusionsThe overall self-reported OHRQL appears to be adversely affected by T1DM especially among children and early adolescents with poor metabolic control. Socioeconomic status and oral health care demonstrate a significant impact on the OHRQoL; however, the effect was obvious in the diabetic and non-diabetic groups.Clinical relevance1. In Egypt, the number of new cases rises progressively in a retrospective survey to figure out the prevalence of T1DM among children and adolescents. The available data is limited regarding the incidence and prevalence of dental caries and gingival condition among Egyptian children and ...

Iwasaki Manabu Morita The purpose of this 3-year prospective cohort study was to explore the relationship between an increase in dental caries and oral microbiome among Japanese university students. We analyzed 487 students who volunteered to receive oral examinations and answer baseline (2013) and follow-up (2016) questionnaires. Of these students, salivary samples were randomly collected from 55 students at follow-up and analyzed using next-generation sequencing. Students were divided into two groups: increased group (Δdecayed, missing, and filled teeth (ΔDMFT) score increased during the 3-year ...
