Adverse drug reactions in dentistry
An adverse drug reaction (ADR) is an undesirable effect of a drug. ADRs are possible with any medication that is prescribed or administered in the dental office. While most pharmacological agents in use today have favourable drug profiles and are relatively safe, the prudent clinician must be aware of the potential ADRs that can occur and be prepared to manage any complications. Here we review the most commonly used agents in dentistry, namely local anaesthetics, sedatives, analgesics and antibiotics, and their ADRs and management. (Source: International Dental Journal)

Translation and validation of the Chinese version of the scale of oral health outcomes for 5 ‐year‐old children
ObjectiveTo adapt the oral health ‐related quality of life (OHRQoL) measurement tool SOHO‐5 (scale of oral health outcomes for 5‐year‐old children) for use in Chinese populations, and to investigate the validity and reliability of the Chinese version of SOHO‐5 (C‐SOHO‐5).Materials and methodsThe draft C ‐SOHO‐5 was developed by a forward−backward process and pilot‐tested on 20 child−parent pairs. The final version was tested on a sample of 5‐year‐old children and their parents. Clinical examinations were conducted to record the children’s caries experience. The reliability of C‐S...

Clinical and microbial oral health status in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus
ConclusionsThe results imply that youngsters with T1DM have a lower level of oral hygiene and are potentially at a higher risk of future oral disease, particularly when their metabolic disorder is uncontrolled. However, factors outside the oral cavity may also have a considerable impact on the initiation and progression of oral diseases. (Source: International Dental Journal)

Local risk indicators – Consensus report of working group 2
In implant dentistry, plaque control and oral hygiene practices are essential to limit the risk of complication and failure in the long term. All conditions around an implant in function that influence the load and pathogenicity of the microbiota are considered local risk indicators. They concern the prosthetic suprastructure design and the possibility for the patient to easily access each implant for plaque removal. Use of cemented prostheses should be limited to avoid excess cement acting as a foreign body and leading to peri ‐implant disease. The crown margins should be supramucosal, and the connection should be preci...

Diagnosis and non ‐surgical treatment of peri‐implant diseases and maintenance care of patients with dental implants – Consensus report of working group 3
AbstractThe following consensus report is based on four background reviews. The frequency of maintenance visits is based on patient risk indicators, homecare compliance and prosthetic design. Generally, a 6 ‐month visit interval or shorter is preferred. At these visits, peri‐implant probing, assessment of bleeding on probing and, if warranted, a radiographic examination is performed. Diagnosis of peri‐implant mucositis requires: (i) bleeding or suppuration on gentle probing with or without increa sed probing depth compared with previous examinations; and (ii) no bone loss beyond crestal bone level changes resulting f...

Antimicrobial prescribing by Belgian dentists in ambulatory care, from 2010 to 2016
ConclusionsAntibiotics typically classified as broad ‐ or extended‐spectrum were prescribed most often by Belgian dentists during the period 2000–2016. Although the DID rate of all ‘Antibacterials for systemic use’ (J01) increased over the years, the number of prescriptions per dentist decreased since 2013. The high prescription level of amo xicillin with an enzyme inhibitor is particularly worrying. It indicates that there is a need for comprehensive clinical practice guidelines for Belgian dentists.
