STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Clinicians are currently unable to quantify the psychosocial, functional, and esthetic effects of prosthetic interventions to replace teeth. Understanding the effects of treatment to replace teeth on oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) is important for informed consent. A systematic review of the evidence of OHRQoL improvements with prosthodontic tooth replacement and a comparison of outcomes between treatment modalities is therefore indicated. PURPOSE: The purpose of this systematic review was to examine the OHRQoL of patients with partial edentulism after different dental prosthetic treatments...

BACKGROUND: Pain during dental treatment, which is a common fear of patients, can be controlled successfully by local anaesthetic. Several different local anaesthetic formulations and techniques are available to dentists. OBJECTIVES: Our primary objectives were to compare the success of anaesthesia, the speed of onset and duration of anaesthesia, and systemic and local adverse effects amongst different local anaesthetic formulations for dental anaesthesia. We define success of anaesthesia as absence of pain during a dental procedure, or a negative response to electric pulp testing or other simulated scenario tests...

Network meta-analysis (NMA) uses direct comparisons of interventions within randomized controlled trials and indirect comparisons across them. NMA uses more data than a series of direct comparisons with placebo, and theoretically should produce more reliable results. We used a Cochrane overview review of acute postoperative pain trials and other systematic reviews to provide data to test this hypothesis. Some 261 trials published between 1966-2016 included 39,753 patients examining 52 active drug and dose combinations (27,726 given active drug, 12,027 placebo), in any type of surgery (72% dental)...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Immediate implantation has been established to shorten waiting time before definitive restoration, offering the ability to deliver a predictable esthetic and functional outcome for patients. However, this approach remains controversial for a tooth with a periodontal or periapical lesion. PURPOSE: The purpose of this systematic review was to analyze the treatment outcomes of immediate implant placement into extraction sockets with or without infection of periodontal or periapical origin in the esthetic zone and to provide treatment protocols based on current studies...

Prior studies suggest dental caries traits in children and adolescents are partially heritable, but there has been no large-scale consortium genome-wide association study (GWAS) to date. We therefore performed GWAS for caries in participants aged 2.5-18.0 years from 9 contributing centres. Phenotype definitions were created for the presence or absence of treated or untreated caries, stratified by primary and permanent dentition. All studies tested for association between caries and genotype dosage and results were combined using fixed-effects meta-analysis...
