OBJECTIVES: Children in poverty have limited access to oral healthcare. One approach to reduce such health inequities is to expand the involvement of primary care physicians in the provision of oral healthcare. The purpose of this study was to assess pediatricians' knowledge, attitudes, and professional experiences regarding oral health in children, and to determine their willingness to incorporate preventive dental education and procedures into their practices. METHODS: We conducted a survey of pediatricians in Tennessee to assess their knowledge, attitudes, and professional experiences regarding oral health, and to determine their willingness to incorporate preventive dental education and procedures into their practices...

Over recent years Dentistry has evolved, and as such, we have been able to make strides in restoring edentulous patients with dental implants. Recently, the specialty of Prosthodontics, in addition to the prosthetic rehabilitation of complex dental patients with fixed, removable, implant, and cosmetic dental needs, has begun to shift into the surgical realm of patient treatment. This report outlines a minimally invasive technique for sinus floor elevation, on the controlled use of drills and osteotomes, while simultaneously placing implants through a guided protocol...

AIM: To illustrate the negative effect of calcium channel blocker (CCB) drugs on the gingival tissues and the reversibility of these lesions. CASE DESCRIPTION: The authors examined a forty-eight year-old male patient with drug-induced gingival enlargement associated with diltiazem, a CCB drug. Prior to initiating the proposed periodontal treatment, the patient was advised to consult his physician, for a possible switch to a different anti-hypertensive drug. The patient returned to the clinic three months later with a significant regression of the gingival overgrowth, which was induced by the patient ceasing the prescribed regimen without medical consultation or periodontal intervention...

The overall health of the United States' (U.S.) population has been surveyed and reported for several decades in a quest by healthcare professionals to understand the etiology for healthcare disparities and seek to lessen its effects on individuals and, ultimately, eliminate them. Many of these surveys and reports have illuminated disparities, of access to healthcare by focusing on measures to address health literacy deficiencies. A plethora of information concerning patients' health literacy skills and printed information has been made available for dentists and their staff...

The need for partial removable dental prostheses (PRDP) is increasing as the over-65 partially edentulous population grows. The use of flexible materials in the fabrication of these prostheses has captured a large portion of the market once occupied by traditional cast metal PRDPs. While there are some clinical advantages to the use of flexible PRDPs, there are also disadvantages and contraindications that must be considered. This paper describes a clinical case in which a patient's dentition is restored with a hybrid partial removable dental prosthesis consisting of a traditional metal framework and flexible denture base and clasps...

Oral complications of cancer therapy can be so severe that they can lead to the discontinuation of cancer treatment. This can affect prognosis, patient survival, and alter patient quality of life. Early recognition and management of oral complications in cancer patients is a very important part of the overall treatment. Currently, a large number of cancers are treated at the ambulatory level, and when patients develop oral problems they may seek care from their private dentist. The goal of this manuscript is to discuss common oral complications of cancer therapy, and the role the general dentist can play in diagnosis and management...

Amelogenesis imperfecta is a hereditary enamel protein disorder affecting deciduous and secondary crown formation. The prevalence ranges from 1:700 to 1:14,000 depending on the population. These teeth may be hypoplastic, hypomineralized, or hypermineralized and are often discolored, sensitive and caries vulnerable. Patients often present with psychosocial issues due to appearance. Primary teeth are often treated with stainless steel crowns while secondary teeth are treated with full coverage esthetic crowns...

PREMISE: The epidemiological data from many countries indicates a global increase in dental caries in children and adults. The purpose of this study was to determine if children in a school setting would accept an after lunch brushing program and if such program would be effective in reducing plaque. STUDY SETTING: A small school of 300 students in Eastern Tennessee was selected to participate of which 200 elected to brush after lunch for 30 school days. Fifty-four students' anterior teeth were stained with a disclosing solution before, during and at the end of the study...

Andrew Wu, Rhonda Switzer-Nadasdi
BACKGROUND: Dental caries is a highly prevalent, yet preventable disease that is commonly overlooked in the adult population. It is strongly related to health-related behaviors and knowledge, and therefore, is potentially receptive to a behavioral health intervention. However, prevention strategies that target health behaviors in adults are fundamentally different from those in children, whom most current intervention strategies for dental caries target. This study attempts to pilot design, implement, and assess health behavior intervention tools for adults, in order to improve their oral health...

Predictable reconstruction of alveolar ridge defects can be obtained by using autogenous bone block. Ultrasonic bone surgery (USBS) is a fast, precise, and simple technique for block graft harvesting. It allows for a clean surgical field with no risk of injury to surrounding neurovascular structures. This article describes a case of horizontal alveolar ridge defect augmented with mental bone block harvested using USBS. The defect was overcorrected using bovine derived xenograft and platelet rich plasma, which is an autologous source of growth factors that helps in early graft consolidation...

Women's health issues are receiving increased attention, including the differences in their dental needs and experiences. Biological and social factors are strong determinants of physical and dental health along the entire life spectrum. Socio-environmental place also contributes significantly to some of the barriers to quality and quantity of health care received, placing population groups who have less access to care at risk. Considerable disparities exist in who receives dental care and what type of dental treatment is received among different segments of the population...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Tyler J Holley, Judith A Ross, Timothy L Hottel
The purpose of this study was to investigate the difference in reduction of an interproximal surface coating with the use of Sonicare Airfloss, tooth brushing or dental flossing since there are currently no articles available comparing dental flossing to Sonicare Airfloss. Three groups of six typodont teeth were sprayed with Occlude Indicator Spray as a test surface coating. Each group was treated with one removal method: Sonicare Airfloss, tooth brushing or dental flossing. In all groups, when used as a single removal method, Sonicare Airfloss resulted in the least removal of the surface coating when compared to either tooth brushing or flossing...
