AIM: to compare the implant survival rate between short dental implants and standard length implants placed in combination with bone grafting at 5 years of loading. METHODS: This multicenter study enrolled 101 patients (137 implants) with a posterior maxillary bone height of 5-7mm. Patients randomly received either short implants (6mm) (GS) or long implants (11-15mm) with sinus grafting (GG). Six months later, implants were loaded with single crowns and patients re-examined at one, three and five years of loading...

Maxillectomy for malignant tumor often results in a maxillary defect and serious oral dysfunction. A prosthesis is usually provided for postoperative oral rehabilitation of such patients with maxillary defects. However, the further the resected region extends, the less stable the prosthesis becomes, due to insufficient bone and tooth support. Therefore, in many cases, conventional resection dentures may not be adequate to restore the oral function. Effective utilization of dental and zygomatic implants may help to restore oral function in patients with severe maxillary defects...

BACKGROUND: In the future there will be an increasing demand for professional care with simultaneous retention of the dentition in older people. Due to inadequate dental knowledge, it is often not possible for caregivers to adequately assess dental deficits. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to develop and validate a simple tool (Mini Dental Assessment, MDA) to assess possible dental treatment needs (DTN) of residential geriatric facilities by nursing personnel...

BACKGROUND: There is debate whether both subjective and objective measures of socioeconomic status (SES) are needed to predict health, and whether these factors are explained by psychosocial characteristics. The aims were to investigate the association of socioeconomic and psychosocial variables with oral health impact and general health utility. METHODS: A random sample of 45- to 54-year-olds from Adelaide, South Australia, was surveyed by self-complete questionnaire in 2004-2005...

OBJECTIVE: The goal of the present study was to investigate health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) in patients under treatment for head and neck cancer and to identify the associated factors. STUDY DESIGN: A cross-sectional study was conducted with 102 patients undergoing treatment for head and neck cancer at 2 medical centers. Participants answered a sociodemographic questionnaire and the Brazilian versions of the Medical Outcomes Study 36 (SF-36) and the Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP-14) questionnaires to assess HRQoL and OHRQoL, respectively...

This paper aims to provide a snapshot analysis of the oral health status of vulnerable adults in Plymouth; and to demonstrate the extent to which oral disease impacts on their normal functioning through the implementation of the Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP). It is acknowledged that gaining a representative sample of a transient population such as people who are homeless, or individuals affected by problematic use of drugs and/or alcohol is difficult. An opportunity was identified to collect data within the Community Engagement Team's (CET) programme of activity within the Peninsula Dental Social Enterprise...

OBJECTIVES: This multicenter prospective clinical trial investigated immediately provisionalized, anodized, conical connection, tapered implants with platform shifting in maxillary anterior and premolar sites. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients requiring single-tooth implant-supported restorations in maxillary anterior and premolar sites were enrolled. Implants were immediately provisionalized and evaluated at insertion, 6 months, and annually thereafter. Outcome measures were marginal bone level change (ΔMBL), cumulative survival rate (CSR), and success rate, soft-tissue parameters, and oral health impact profile (OHIP)...

BACKGROUND: The assessment of oral heath related quality of life (OHRQoL) for complete denture wearers according to a participant's subjective perception may provide an indication of the adaptive capacity of the individual. The aim of this study was to compare and assess the validation of two quality of life measures, the Oral Health Impact Profile-14 (OHIP-14) and Geriatric Oral Health Assessment Index (GOHAI), in patients with and without previous denture experience. METHODS: A total of 69 elders (36 male and 34 female; mean age, 63 years) from Dental Clinics of the University of Khartoum and the National University in Sudan, with and without previous denture experience, were included in the study...

This cross-sectional study aimed to analyze the sociodemographic and clinical factors that may influence the OHRQoL of 18-year-old young adults. METHODS: A representative sample was selected from Hong Kong. Periodontal status and caries were examined according to WHO criteria. Four orthodontic indices were used to assess malocclusion...

Objective This study was performed to identify a possible association of the clinical parameters of systemic sclerosis (SSc) and the socioeconomic status (SES) with oral health-related quality of life (OHrQoL) as measured by the Oral Health Impact Profile 49 (OHIP 49), taking into account the effect of educational level (as a proxy of SES) on oral health. Methods Subjects were recruited from the Croatian SSc Center of Excellence cohort. Detailed dental and clinical examinations were performed according to standardized protocols...

BACKGROUND: In dentistry, one of the most common surgical procedures is the removal of retained third molars. This surgery generates great morbidity to the participants for causing pain, edema, and trismus due to surgical trauma. The objective of the present study is to evaluate the efficacy of photobiomodulation with light emitting diode (LED) in the control of pain, facial edema, trismus, and quality of life resulting from the extraction of retained lower third molars. METHODS: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial involving 38 adult participants, who meet the criteria of eligibility and agree to participate in the study...

Effect of prosthesis and dental implants on quality of life related to the patient’s oral health can guide the clinician in providing best services. The zygomatic implant (ZI) is a partial or complete alternative technique to so-called traditional rehabilitation techniques (aiming to increase bone volume) of edentulous atrophic maxillae. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of fixed prosthetic rehabilitation by ZI on patients’ quality of life. This study highlighted the level of satisfaction of nine patients treated with ZI via their pre-therapeutic and post-therapeutic scores on the Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP)-14 scale...
