Chronodentistry: the role & potential of molecular clocks in oral medicine.

BMC Oral Health 2019 Feb 13;19(1):32. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Conservative Dentistry and Periodontology, University Clinic of Dentistry, Medical University of Vienna, Sensengasse 2a, 1090, Vienna, Austria.

Molecular clocks help organisms to adapt important physiological functions to periodically changing conditions in the environment. These include the adaption of the 24 h sleep-wake rhythm to changes of day and night. The circadian clock is known to act as a key regulator in processes of health and disease in different organs.

Caries experience and oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) of children and adolescents with cerebral palsy in a low-resource setting.

BMC Oral Health 2019 Jan 15;19(1):15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

CSF Global, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Background: Children with complex neurodevelopmental disabilities such as cerebral palsy (CP), have a higher risk of dental disease related at least in part to greater difficulties in performing and maintaining effective oral hygiene and oral care practices. However, to date, there are very few studies that have considered the impact of dental disease on the Oral Health-Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL) of children and adolescents with cerebral palsy. This study aimed to investigate the association between dental caries experience and oral health related quality of life (OHRQoL) among children and adolescents with cerebral palsy in a low-resource setting (Bangladesh).

Impact of different restorative treatments for deep caries lesion in primary teeth (CEPECO 1) - study protocol for a noninferiority randomized clinical trial.

BMC Oral Health 2019 Jan 8;19(1). Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Graduation Program, School of Dentistry, Ibirapuera University, Av. Interlagos 1329, São Paulo, SP, 04661-100, Brazil.

Background: Due to the lack of evidence to determine the best treatment for deep cavitated caries lesions in primary molars, the search for an effective restorative technique, which results in a minimal discomfort to patients, and reduce the time needed for the treatment, becomes relevant. The objective of this randomized clinical trial was to evaluate if high-viscosity glass ionomer cement (HVGIC) restorations is noninferior to restoration with calcium hydroxide cement associated with HVGIC for treatment of deep lesions in primary molars, as well as the impact of the treatments on cost and discomfort of the patient.

Methods: A non-inferiority randomized clinical trial with two parallels arms (1:1) will be conducted. Read More

Proposal for a screening questionnaire for detecting habitual mouth breathing, based on a mouth-breathing habit score.

BMC Oral Health 2018 Dec 13;18(1):216. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Oral Biomedical Research, Total Health Advisers Co., Chiba-shi, Chiba, Japan.

Background: When mouth breathing becomes habitual, it can cause sleep disorders and abnormal maxillofacial growth, thus early detection of habitual mouth breathing is important. We created a questionnaire for early detection of habitual mouth breathing using a score based on a spectrum of factors found to be characteristic of mouth breathers.

Methods: First, a draft 50-question questionnaire was given to 101 random dental clinic patients, classified by dental professionals into habitual mouth breathers (n = 28) and nose breathers (n = 73). Read More
