Evaluation of oral mechanical and gustatory sensitivities and salivary cotinine levels in adult smokers.
lo PM Abstract Objective: The aim was to examine oral mechanical and gustatory sensitivities in adult smokers and to estimate salivary levels of cotinine by tobacco consumption. A total of 54 adults (20-45 years old; 28 males/26 females) were divided into two sex-paired groups: smoker group (n = 27), tobacco consumers with no other chronic disease/use of chronic medication, and a control non-smoker non-exposed group with similar age (n = 27).Materials and Methods: 24 h-Recall was used to gather information about tobacco consumption, date of onset and duration of the habit....

How has the dental literature evolved over time? Analyzing 20 years of journal self-citation rates and impact factors.
This study aimed to analyze the longitudinal development of journal self-citation rates (SCRs) and IFs in dental literature and to determine possible confounders.Methods: Twenty-eight journals with scope within general dentistry and (sub)specialties listed in 1997-2016 Journal of Citation Reports® were scrutinized. The following information was retrieved: publication year, total number of citations, number of self-citations, IF, corrected IF, and SCR.Results: Endodontic journals had the highest SCR (median = 35.3, IQR = 21.6-47.5), journals related to periodontics had the lowest (median = 14.7, IQR = 8.9-25.5).

Odontoblast-like MDPC-23 cells produce pro-inflammatory IL-6 in response to lipoteichoic acid and express the antimicrobial peptide CRAMP.
Conclusions: We show that MDPC-23 cells possess immune-like cell properties such as LTA-induced IL-6 production and expression of the antimicrobial peptide CRAMP, suggesting that odontoblasts may modulate innate immunity via these mechanisms.

Periodontal status and dental behaviour of heart transplant recipients and healthy controls.
Conclusion: Considering the poor oral hygiene and high clinical periodontal parameters of heart transplant recipients, periodontal evaluation should be done regularly before and after transplantation. The patient's daily oral hygiene regimens should be evaluated carefully in this evaluation session and modified based on their gingival health, manual skill and motivational levels. The importance of oral health and its effects on systemic health should also be explained to the transplant recipients in detail.

Determination of baseline alveolar mucosa perfusion parameters using laser Doppler flowmetry and tissue spectrophotometry in healthy adults.
Conclusion: the present study provides a set of brand-new perfusion parameters of the microcirculation of the alveolar mucosa using LDF-TS. The study suggests a variation of the perfusion parameters between the maxilla and the mandible. Differences in the anatomy of the blood supply, the thickness of the mucosa and the cortical bone, may be attributed to this variation. Further studies using different probes and a combination of ultrasonic measurements and SDF imaging will aid in giving a better overview of the perfusion in the oral mucosa.
