Delivering dental treatment for patients with dementia can be challenging and the complexity of treatment provision can increase as dementia progresses. Treatment at the later stages of dementia can be associated with ethical challenges and procedural risk meaning that a comprehensive patient assessment is crucial; the presence of orofacial pain is a key indication for active intervention from dental teams. To explore the process of oro-facial pain assessment and management, a comprehensive review of qualitative literature was undertaken by searching six electronic databases...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Traumatic dental injuries (TDI) are a public health concern with high prevalence and recurrence rate. The aim of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine whether previous dental trauma is a predictive factor for new episodes of TDI (recurrence or first episodes). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Electronic searches were performed with no language or date restrictions. According to the PECOS strategy, cohort studies that investigated subjects with and without previous TDI, and its association with new TDI episodes, as primary or secondary outcomes, were included...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the survival and technical complication rate of partial and full-arch all-ceramic implant-supported fixed dental prostheses (P-FDP/FA-FDP) and supporting implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An electronic search through three databases (MEDLINE/Pubmed, Cochrane Library, Embase) was conducted to identify relevant clinical studies with an observation period of at least 12 months, including ≥15 patients. Reconstruction and implant survival rates, technical complications and confounding variables such as processed/installed materials, retention mode and location in the mouth were obtained...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this systematic review was to assess clinical evidence on adverse effects of osseointegrated implants placed among natural teeth of a residual dentition. METHODS: Seven databases were searched without restrictions up to January 2018 for clinical studies on implant infraposition (IIP) or proximal contact point (PCP) loss to the adjacent teeth. After duplicate selection, data extraction, and risk of bias assessment according to the Cochrane guidelines, random-effects meta-analyses of odds ratios (OR) or mean differences (MD) and their 95% confidence intervals (CI) were performed, followed by meta-regression and sensitivity analyses...

Objective To analyse the accuracy of a meta-analysis-based dental age assessment (DAA) method in Finnish paediatric patients and to compare the dental development between two generations of Finnish children. Methods Panoramic radiographs of Finnish Caucasian healthy children from two generations (early: born 1981-1984; subsequent: born 1996-2008) were analysed. All developing teeth on the left maxilla and mandible as well as the third permanent molars were analysed following Demirjian's classification. For each patient, dental age was calculated and compared with chronological age...

Dental mortality has been reported by longitudinal studies on periodontal maintenance therapy (PMT), but the independent effect of smoking on tooth loss (TL), adjusted for important confounding variables, has been poorly evaluated. This systematic review aimed to assess and analyze the isolated effect of smoking TL among individuals undergoing PMT. Electronic, manual, grey literature, and recent articles (from April 2018) were searched, with no restriction regarding language; respective dates of publication were included...

BACKGROUND: Pre-eclampsia and eclampsia are common causes of serious morbidity and death. Calcium supplementation may reduce the risk of pre-eclampsia, and may help to prevent preterm birth. This is an update of a review last published in 2014. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of calcium supplementation during pregnancy on hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and related maternal and child outcomes. SEARCH METHODS: We searched Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth's Trials Register, ClinicalTrials...

The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the published literature on current educational techniques used to teach local anesthesia administration in U.S. dental schools to determine the methods by which potential complications may be minimized and efficacy maximized. A PubMed search was performed in June 2017 on the following terms: (local anesthesia, education, dental) AND (Humans[Mesh]). Out of 136 articles identified, 13 met the study criteria and were included for review. Of those, the nine with outcome measures were included in the qualitative synthesis...

BACKGROUND: Dental pain can have a detrimental effect on quality of life. Symptomatic apical periodontitis and acute apical abscess are common causes of dental pain and arise from an inflamed or necrotic dental pulp, or infection of the pulpless root canal system. Clinical guidelines recommend that the first-line treatment for teeth with these conditions should be removal of the source of inflammation or infection by local, operative measures, and that systemic antibiotics are currently only recommended for situations where there is evidence of spreading infection (cellulitis, lymph node involvement, diffuse swelling) or systemic involvement (fever, malaise)...

BACKGROUND: The authors evaluated instructions for author norms among existing dental journals and analyzed whether these journals address the practice of reporting guidelines and ethics policies. METHODS: The authors evaluated 87 journals indexed in Journal Citation Reports (Thomson Reuters). The authors extracted information regarding the journals from the Journal Citation Reports database and from the instructions for authors of each journal. The authors conducted bivariate analysis to compare the methodological policy issues of journals with higher and those with lower impact factors (≥ 1...

The purpose of this systematic review with meta-analysis was to assess the effectiveness of dental interventions in preventing or reducing the incidence of medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) in cancer patients receiving antiresorptive therapy, compared to similar control groups receiving no intervention. Randomized controlled trials (RCT), case-controls and cohorts on cancer patients with primary outcome being the prevalence of MRONJ were included. Four electronic databases were searched (Cochrane Library, PubMed, EMBASE and Web of Science) up to February 12, 2018...

Facial soft tissue thickness (FSTT) data form the basis of craniofacial identification methods such as facial approximation in cases where unknown skeletal remains lack unique identifiers such as fingerprints, DNA and dental records. Appropriate FSTT data are said to be required to produce accurate facial approximations that may be recognised by relatives. This view led to a vast number of studies considering subdivisions of FSTT data according to ancestry, age and sex. The paucity of South African juvenile FSTT standards of particular age groups, sex and ancestry is therefore problematic as "accurate" facial approximations cannot be produced...
