Malocclusion traits and oral health-related quality of life in children with osteogenesis imperfecta: A cross-sectional study.
CONCLUSIONS: Adolescents with OI and posterior open bites or crossbites have substantial self-reported functional limitations and worse oral symptoms, which warrants additional investigation and therapeutic trials in an attempt to improve the malocclusion. In addition, the authors found that the CPQ can be a useful tool in a clinical trial of orthodontic interventions in OI.

The effect of diet drinks on caries among US children: Cluster analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study suggest that diet drinks have no adverse effect on teeth among US children. Additional well-designed longitudinal studies should be conducted to establish the effect of diet drinks on caries when consumed during childhood. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Although this study did not show an association between caries and diet drinks, dental practitioners should be cautious about recommending these drinks, as they have been linked to systemic diseases. In addition, the American Academy of Pediatrics and National Academy of Medicine do not recommend that children consume these beverages. ...

CONCLUSIONS: Dental care providers see a sizable number of patients who use combustible cigarettes and e-cigarettes, many of whom are concerned about the potential harms of these products on their health and express interest in tobacco-use cessation support. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: It is critical that dental care professionals engage in efforts to assess combustible cigarette and e-cigarette use and provide guidance regarding these products to their patients.

Oral health-related quality of life and unmet dental needs among women living with HIV.
Authors: Parish CL, Feaster DJ, Pereyra MR, Alcaide ML, Weber KM, Cohen M, Levin S, Gustafson D, Merenstein D, Aouizerat BE, Donohue J, Webster-Cyriaque J, Wingood G, Kempf MC, Metsch LR Abstract BACKGROUND: Oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) is a multidimensional, perception-based measure of how oral health affects social and physical functioning and self-image. OHRQoL is important for assessing women living with HIV (WLWH) who may have unmet dental needs and experience disparities that impact dental care accessibility. METHODS: In 2016, the authors conducted an assessment of OHRQoL among a national ...

CONCLUSIONS: DLCUs are an integral part of a general dentist's daily practice, but maintenance, ocular safety, and technique varied widely among this sample. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Because clinical effectiveness requires delivery of an adequate amount of light energy at the appropriate wavelength, variation in DLCU maintenance, safety, and techniques suggest that dentists could benefit from additional guidance and training on DLCU operation.

Increased opioid prescription fills after dental procedures performed before weekends and holidays.
CONCLUSIONS: Outpatient dental procedures performed the day before a weekend or holiday were associated with a 27% increased adjusted odds of filling a prescription for an opioid. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Although patients and dentists might be concerned about the challenges of unmanaged pain on weekends and holidays, opioids are not warranted for most dental procedures and should be replaced with patient education and nonopioid analgesics. Oral health care professionals concerned about postprocedural pain control should consider scheduling complex procedures earlier in the week, when emergency care is available to redu...

Oral disorders associated with the experience of verbal bullying among Brazilian school-aged children: A case-control study.
CONCLUSION: Children aged 8 through 10 years with a severe malocclusion, larger maxillary misalignment, or the presence of pulp exposure had increased odds of experiencing VB compared with children without those oral health conditions. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Once oral disorders involved in VB are identified, appropriate approaches should be used to address this issue. With this course of action, oral health care professionals may use the treatment and preventive care to eliminate potential factors for peer aggression.

Impact of visual inspection and radiographs for caries detection in children through a 2-year randomized clinical trial: The Caries Detection in Children-1 study.
Authors: Pontes LRA, Novaes TF, Lara JS, Gimenez T, Moro BLP, Camargo LB, Michel-Crosato E, Pannuti CM, Raggio DP, Braga MM, Mendes FM Abstract BACKGROUND: Visual inspection (VIS) with radiographic examination (RAD) is the recommended diagnostic strategy for detecting caries in children; however, this recommendation is based on accuracy studies. The authors conducted a clinical trial to compare the detection and subsequent treatment of carious lesions in primary molars performed with VIS alone and with RAD.

Blood spatter in oral surgery: Prevalence and risk factors.
CONCLUSIONS: The risk of clinician contamination with blood during tooth extraction and implant placement was 46%. The risk increased with the use of high-speed instruments and longer surgery time. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: The use of facial protective devices should be mandatory during oral surgery procedures to avoid blood contamination, especially when rotary devices are used. In many cases, imperceptible blood spatter is present. PMID: 32450982 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Journal of the American Dental Association)
