The temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) and sleep bruxism (SB) affect the quality of life (QoL) of the individuals in general. However, the literature lacks studies on individuals with cleft lip and palate (CLP). Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the impact of TMD and SB on the oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) of individuals with CLP. Thirty-six individuals, both genders, aged between 30 and 50 years, at routine treatment in the Dental Prosthesis Sector of Hospital for Rehabilitation of Craniofacial Anomalies-University of São Paulo were selected and divided into the following groups: G1-unilateral complete CLP (n = 22) and G2-bilateral complete CLP (n = 14)...

Oral mucositis is a painful condition that occurs in patients who have undergone haematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT) and has a huge impact on their quality of life. The objective of this study was to examine the extent to which interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) are associated with oral health quality of life among patients who underwent HSCT. A. C. Camargo Cancer Center patients were evaluated over 20 months at 4 different time-points: a) at patient admission (M1); b) on the day of infusion of HSC (M2); c) 12 and 20 days after the first day of the conditioning regimen for autologous and allogeneic transplantation, respectively (M3); and d) 30 days after the first day of the conditioning regimen (M4)...

OBJECTIVES: This prospective cohort study estimated the effect of technical and clinical factors on mechanical complications in implant-supported fixed complete dentures (IFCDs). The patient's perception of the impact of oral rehabilitation on quality of life was assessed. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A non-probabilistic sample consisted of 88 consecutive patients treated with 94 screw-retained, metal-acrylic IFCDs. Data collection included sociodemographic variables, presence and intensity of bruxism, maximal occlusal force, opposing arch, design of the metallic framework, distribution of occlusal contacts, and quality of life (OHIP-14)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the associations between degree of periodontal disease and number of teeth on oral health-related quality of life among older individuals. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Randomly selected 804 participants aged ≥70 derived from two cohorts were included in the analysis. Dental examinations and evaluation of OHRQL using the OHIP-14 (Oral Health Impact Profile-14) were performed. After categorisation of the participants according to the extent of periodontitis in three groups (none, localised with <30% of teeth affected, generalised with ≥30% of teeth affected) and the number of teeth, associations between periodontal status and the number of teeth and the OHIP-14 scores were analysed...

Objective of work: The authors conducted a clinical study to evaluate the effectiveness of amitriptyline in treatment of chronic TMD patients and to compare treatment results with stabilization splint. Materials and Methods: Twenty-one patients with chronic TMD were included and randomly distributed into 3 groups: patients in Group A received amitriptyline, patients in Group B received placebo, and those in Group C were treated with stabilization splint. Treatment outcomes (pain assessed by a visual analogue scale (VAS), maximal comfortable mouth opening (MCO) and oral health related quality of life (OHIP-14)) were taken at baseline (before treatment), and at 1st , 6th and 12th week of treatment...

BACKGROUND: Both dental caries and periodontal disease, as isolated conditions, can generate limitations and disabilities with negative repercussions on the individual's quality of life, but the combination of both oral diseases has not been investigated yet. This study aimed to evaluate the association between the combined exposure to dental caries and periodontitis and the impact on oral health-related quality of life. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 306 individuals seen in the public health services in Feira de Santana, Bahia, Brazil...

PURPOSE: Non-invasive treatment of root caries lesions (RCLs) may impact oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL), but no evidence is available. The purpose of the study was to assess changes in OHRQoL among patients exposed to non-invasive treatment of RCLs with conventional or high-fluoride dentifrices. METHODS: To be eligible, subjects had to be ≥60 years of age, independently living, with at least five teeth and one RCL. The 14-item Oral Health Impact Profile for adults in Spanish (OHIP-14Sp), oral examination and sociodemographic data were documented at the beginning of the study (T0)...
