Personality, xerostomia and OHRQoL among 35-54-year-olds.

Acta Odontol Scand 2019 Mar 9;77(2):114-118. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

a Sir John Walsh Research Institute, Faculty of Dentistry , The University of Otago , Dunedin , New Zealand.

Objective: Personality characteristics mean that people may interpret similar symptoms differently, complicating the measurement of self-reported oral health, and so we tested the hypothesis that controlling for aspects of personality makes a difference to the association between xerostomia and oral-health-related quality of life.

Material And Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted of a representative adult population sample in Dunedin (New Zealand). Data were collected on xerostomia, OHRQoL and personality characteristics, using (respectively) the 5-item Shortened Xerostomia Inventory (SXI), the OHIP-14 and the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS).

Prevalence of periodontitis: misclassification, under-recognition or over-diagnosis using partial and full-mouth periodontal examination protocols.

Acta Odontol Scand 2019 Apr 9;77(3):189-196. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

a Department of Surgical Sciences , C.I.R. Dental School University of Turin , Turin , Italy.

Objective: The aim of this cross-sectional study was to assess the bias in estimating the prevalence of periodontitis due to partial-mouth periodontal examination protocols (PMPE) and to relate the severity and extent of periodontal damage to periodontitis misclassification when applying case definitions by Centres of Disease Control and Prevention and American Academy of Periodontology (CDC/AAP).

Materials And Methods: A full-mouth periodontal examination (FMPE) was performed in 721 adults living in North Italy to identify moderate and severe periodontitis. These results were compared with those obtained with two PMPE protocols analyzing two interproximal sites on all teeth (fMB-DL) or four interproximal sites in two random diagonal quadrants (pMDB-MDL).

Inflammatory profile of chronic apical periodontitis: a literature review.

Acta Odontol Scand 2019 Apr 26;77(3):173-180. Epub 2018 Dec 26.

d Department of Endodontology , Institute of Odontology The Sahlgrenska Academy University of Gothenburg , Gothenburg , Sweden.

Apical periodontitis caused by root canal infection is the most frequent pathological lesion in the jaws, mainly manifested as periapical granulomas and cysts. Understanding of the formation and progression of apical periodontitis as well as the identification of inflammatory biomarkers can help increase the knowledge of pathogenic mechanisms, improve the diagnosis and provide support for different therapeutic strategies. The objective of the present article is to review inflammatory biomarkers such as cytokines, chemokines, inflammatory cells, neuropeptides, RANK/RANKL/OPG system and other inflammatory markers and to relate these systems to the development and progression of pathological conditions related to apical periodontitis.
