Serum C-terminal cross-linking telopeptide level as a predictive biomarker of osteonecrosis after dentoalveolar surgery in patients receiving bisphosphonate therapy: Systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONCLUSIONS AND PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: The use of CTX levels to diagnose MRONJ risk after dental procedures in patients receiving BP is not justified. The cutoff of 150 pg/mL in serum CTX levels is not predictive of MRONJ. Further studies are needed to develop other reliable biomarkers.

Clinical predictors of persistent temporomandibular disorder in people with first-onset temporomandibular disorder: A prospective case-control study.
CONCLUSIONS: Clinical measures that clinicians can assess readily when TMD first develops are useful in predicting the risk of developing persistent TMD. Psychosocial measures are important predictors of onset but do not add meaningfully to the predictive capacity of clinical measures. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: When TMD first develops, clinicians usefully can identify patients at higher risk of developing persistence by using clinical measures that they logically also could use in treatment planning and for monitoring outcomes of intervention.

Emergency department revisits for nontraumatic dental conditions in Massachusetts.
CONCLUSIONS: The sizable proportion of NTDC ED repeat visits indicates that certain patients in Massachusetts experience consistent and systematic barriers in accessing appropriate and timely oral health care. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Prioritizing young adults and Medicaid enrollees for ED diversion programs and setting up a formal referral process via connecting patients to dental offices and community health centers after an NTDC ED visit may reduce NTDC ED revisits and provide appropriate oral health care to these patients.

CONCLUSIONS: TGNC adolescents and young adults have minimal difficulty receiving oral health care. Oral health care providers can make minor modifications to intake forms and office design to improve patient experience and reduce stress and anxiety related to gender identity in the health care setting. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Although TGNC adolescents and young adults may not need oral health care specific to their identity, taking steps to provide a safe and comfortable treatment setting can improve patient experience for this vulnerable population.

Authors: Zwicker DH, Price RB, Carr L, Li YH Abstract BACKGROUND: Magnification loupes are not disposable and must be cleaned and disinfected between each patient. In this pilot study, the authors determined the efficacy of infection-control procedures used by dental students between patients. METHODS: Visibly clean loupes owned and used by 25 dental students were swabbed for bacteria using a standard microbiology method at baseline and then cleaned with surface disinfectant before they were returned. The students then used and disinfected their loupes for 5 days as they treated patients, after which time the l...

Comparison of the success rate of a bioactive dentin substitute with those of other root restoration materials in pulpotomy of primary teeth: Systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONCLUSIONS AND PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: MTA has a significantly lower radiographic failure rate than does Biodentine but no difference in clinical failure rates. On the basis of this result, the dentist can weigh the advantages and disadvantages of using Biodentine, MTA, ferric sulfate, and formocresol and can make a more informed decision about using the proper root restoration material.

Does selective carious tissue removal of soft dentin increase the restorative failure risk in primary teeth?: Systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: Selective carious tissue removal of soft dentin may increase the risk of experiencing restoration failure in primary teeth. However, the evidence level is insufficient for definitive conclusions. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Patients with restorations performed after selective carious tissue removal of soft dentin should have shorter recall visit intervals to evaluate the restorations' quality and control caries disease, allowing for more conservative approaches, such as repair, in cases of defective restorations.

The pediatric dental workforce in 2016 and beyond.
CONCLUSIONS: The study results suggest that the supply of pediatric dentists is growing more rapidly than is the demand. Growth in demand could increase if pediatric dentists captured a larger share of pediatric dental services or if children who are underserved had oral health care use patterns similar to those of the population with fewer access barriers. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: It is important to encourage policy changes to reduce barriers to accessing oral health care, to continue pediatric dentists' participation with Medicaid programs, and to urge early dental services for children.

Association between a child's caries experience and the mother's perception of her child's oral health status.
Authors: Snell AK, Burgette JM, Weyant RJ, Crout RJ, McNeil DW, Foxman B, Marazita ML Abstract BACKGROUND: Mothers play a primary role in the health of their children. This role may be of particular importance for children in Appalachia who have increased caries relative to children in other regions of the United States. The authors examined the degree to which a child's caries experience was in concordance with the mother's perception of the health of her child's teeth, and how concordance varied by sociodemographic factors. METHODS: The authors obtained cross-sectional data on mother-child dyads with children...

Treatment in the dental practice of the patient receiving anticoagulation therapy.
CONCLUSIONS: Direct oral anticoagulants are now the preferred agents for most patients receiving anticoagulation therapy. With patients receiving any type of therapeutic anticoagulation, clinicians usually can perform dental procedures such as restorations, limited dental extractions, endodontic procedures, soft-tissue biopsies, and scalings safely without anticoagulation therapy interruption. Although local hemostatic maneuvers are often sufficient during dental procedures, antifibrinolytic medications, as well as local sponges and glues, can be used to ensure adequate hemostasis. Different classes of anticoagulants inter...

The combination of digital and conventional work flow in fabricating immediate dentures has eliminated the risk of experiencing unintentional tooth extraction during impression-making procedures, reduced the number of patient visits for the placement of immediate dentures, and resulted in satisfactory esthetic and functional outcomes.
