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.

Role of dental sleep medicine in management of patients with obstructive sleep apnea disorders using a team approach.

Acta Odontol Scand 2018 Nov;76(8):605-611

a Departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery , Tokyo Medical University , Tokyo , Japan.

Objective: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a significant social and health issue. An integrated multidisciplinary approach to OSA management may be the most effective owing to its multifactorial etiology. In this study, we evaluated the frequency and efficacy of various treatment modalities for OSA administered via an integrated care delivery model, and assessed the role of dental sleep medicine as part of a multidisciplinary team.

Dental magnetic resonance imaging for periodontal indication - a new approach of imaging residual periodontal bone support.

Acta Odontol Scand 2019 Jan 29;77(1):49-54. Epub 2018 Aug 29.

a Section of Periodontology, Clinic for Conservative Dentistry , University Hospital Heidelberg , Heidelberg , Germany.

Objective: The standard imaging techniques used in dentistry consist of two-dimensional radiographic techniques like intraoral periapical (PA) radiographs, bitewings or extraoral panoramic X-rays. Three-dimensional methods, such as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), are not standard procedures. In several fields of dentistry, such as oral surgery or implantology, dental magnetic resonance imaging (DMRI), a technique without radiation exposure, has already been introduced as a new promising diagnostic tool.
