Severity of Candida-associated denture stomatitis is improved in institutionalized elders who consume Lactobacillus rhamnosus SP1.

Aust Dent J 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Institute for Research in Dental Sciences, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Chile, Santiago, Chile.

Background: This study aimed to determine the effect of the consumption of a probiotic on the clinical characteristics of Candida-associated denture stomatitis (DS) and to determine the impact of a protocol of self-care measures in oral/prosthetic hygiene in institutionalized elders that wear removable prostheses (RP). The current treatment for DS is the systemic use of antifungals, as well as the replacement of these devices together with oral/prosthetic hygiene instructions.

Prospective longitudinal comparison study of surgical therapies for peri-implantitis: 3-year follow-up.

Aust Dent J 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Department of Periodontology, Federal University of Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, SC, Brazil.

Background: The aim of this study was to compare different surgical therapies to treat peri-implantitis.

Myofunctional therapy and prefabricated functional appliances: an overview of the history and evidence.

Aust Dent J 2019 Mar 28. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Discipline of Orthodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Sydney, Dental Hospital, Sydney Local Health District.

Malocclusion represents the clinically observable endpoint of numerous genetic and environmental influences. Oral Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) aims to treat malocclusions by improving the oral environment through re-education of musculature and respiratory patterns. Although the concept of OMT has existed since the early part of the 20 Century, many of its purported benefits for the treatment of malocclusion remain undemonstrated in the scientific literature.

The distribution of allied dental practitioners in australia: socio-economics and rurality as a driver of better health service accessibility.

Aust Dent J 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

International Research Collaborative - Oral Health and Equity, School of Human Sciences, University of Western Australia, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

Objectives: Analysis of the distribution of allied dental practitioners relative to the socio-economic profile of the population, to develop a baseline of employment demographics at a time of proposed deregulation of practicing restrictions.

Methods: A database of allied dental practitioners (ADP - oral health therapists, dental therapists and dental hygienists) was compiled from the public access register of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. The principal practice locations limited to suburb and postcode were geocoded by latitude and longitude and superimposed on a map of the Australian landmass using QGIS software. Read More

The Monitor Practice Program: implications for dentistry and dental education.

Authors:
R W Evans

Aust Dent J 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Sydney Dental School, The University of Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

The restorative model of care, known colloquially as drilling and filling, has been challenged on the basis of its inappropriateness. The Caries Management System protocol was developed as an evidence-based strategy for non-surgical treatment of caries lesions and the Monitor Practice Program was designed to test the hypothesis that use of the protocol would reduce risk of dental caries experience. After 7 years, patients attending intervention practices, compared with those attending control practices, needed: 30%-50% fewer restorative interventions; 55% fewer first time restorative interventions; 32% fewer repeat restorative interventions; and were only 23% as likely to be classified as high risk.

Aust Dent J 2019 Mar 16;64(1):96-102. Epub 2018 Dec 16.

144 Appel Street, Graceville, Brisbane, Australia.

Dental caries generates significant health, financial and social costs to individuals and communities, but risk factors are not spread randomly and evenly throughout populations. People from lower socio-economic status (SES) and disadvantaged groups suffer a disproportionately greater disease burden. Clinicians and public health experts view this problem through a different lens. Read More

The potential ecological effects of casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate in dental caries prevention.

N Philip L Walsh

Aust Dent J 2019 Mar 22;64(1):66-71. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

School of Dentistry, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Contemporary caries prevention protocols recommend not only effective remineralizing agents but also ecological measures to reverse the dental plaque dysbiosis responsible for the disease pathogenesis. There is a high-level of evidence supporting the remineralizing efficacy of casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) from studies around the world. Evidence is now emerging that CPP-ACP may also have a beneficial influence on the dental plaque microbial ecology and homeostasis. Read More

Iatrogenic subcutaneous facial emphysema secondary to a Class V dental restoration: a case report.

Py-H Chien

Aust Dent J 2019 Mar 18;64(1):43-46. Epub 2018 Oct 18.

The University of Queensland (UQ), Wide Bay Hospital and Health Services (WBHHS), Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Subcutaneous facial emphysema (SFE) following routine dental operative procedure is an uncommon but potentially life-threatening complication. The present case details a Class V restoration where air was introduced into the fascial tissue planes via the gingival sulcus from the use of an air-driven dental handpiece. Although the SFE is usually self-limiting within 3-10 days, such instances should be regarded as a medical emergency as in severe cases, the air may spread to the neck, mediastinum and thorax to result in cervicofacial emphysema with potential pneumomediastinum and pneumothorax.

Carotid Artery Calcification on Orthopantomograms (CACO Study) - is it indicative of carotid stenosis?

Aust Dent J 2019 Mar 9;64(1):4-10. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Michell Professor of Medicine, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, University of Adelaide, Cardiology Academic Lead, Central Adelaide Local Health Network, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

It is unclear whether incidental carotid artery calcification (CAC) on radiographs has a defined relationship to clinically significant carotid artery stenosis, and therefore risk of stroke. The primary objective of this study was to ascertain the relationship between dental radiograph detected carotid calcification and carotid artery stenoses ≥50% on carotid duplex ultrasound. We carried out an observational study of patients undergoing routine dental orthopantomogram (OPG) examinations. Read More

"Spontaneous" medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw; two case reports and a systematic review.

Aust Dent J 2018 Dec 9;63(4):441-454. Epub 2018 Sep 9.

Dental Unit, The Alfred Hospital, Prahran, Victoria, Australia.

Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) is a severe adverse drug effect consisting of bone destruction of the maxilla and/or mandible. The most common precipitating event described in the literature is the extraction of a tooth followed by "spontaneous" occurrence with no clear predisposing event. Current studies are investigating methods of managing dental extractions in patients at risk of MRONJ; however, no studies to date examine the aetiology and management of "spontaneous" MRONJ.
