The effect of mobile personalised texting versus non-personalised texting on the caries risk of underprivileged adults: a randomised control trial.

BMC Oral Health 2019 Mar 12;19(1):44. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Prosthodontics and Oral Rehabilitation, Cork Dental School and Hospital, University College Cork, Cork, Republic of Ireland.

Background: In the Republic of Ireland (RoI), fluoridation has been effective and efficient for caries prevention at population level, regardless of income status; however, at individual level it still has limitations. This study aimed to compare personalised versus non-personalised text messaging on 'chance of avoiding new cavities' with the Cariogram, a computer-based caries risk assessment (CRA) model, in an economically disadvantaged adult population in the RoI.

Methods: The intervention was via a CRA summary letter plus 24 weekly personalised mobile-phone short text messages (text messages) based on the individual's CRA, compared with a non-personalised approach via a non-personalised letter and a predetermined, fixed set of 24 weekly text messages.

BMC Oral Health 2019 Mar 7;19(1):42. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Pharmacology Department - Addictovigilance, CHU Nantes, Nantes, France.

Background: Many studies were conducted to assess the benefit/risk ratio of EMONO (Equimolar Mixture of Oxygen and Nitrous Oxide) in France before it was authorized for use outside the hospital setting in 2009.

Medical-grade polycaprolactone scaffolds made by melt electrospinning writing for oral bone regeneration - a pilot study in vitro.

BMC Oral Health 2019 Feb 1;19(1):28. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Plastic Surgery, University Hospital Würzburg, Pleicherwall 2, 97080, Würzburg, Germany.

Background: The spectrum of indications for the use of membranes and scaffolds in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery includes, amongst others, guided bone regeneration (GBR). Currently available membrane systems face certain disadvantages such as difficult clinical handling, inconsistent degradation, undirected cell growth and a lack of stability that often complicate their application. Therefore, new membranes which can overcome these issues are of great interest in this field. Read More

The role of osteomodulin on osteo/odontogenic differentiation in human dental pulp stem cells.

BMC Oral Health 2019 Jan 22;19(1):22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Endodontics, Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital, College of Stomatology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China.

Background: Extracellular matrix secretion and odontoblastic differentiation in human dental pulp stem cells (hDPSCs) are the cellular bases for reparative dentinogenesis. Osteomodulin (OMD) is a member of the small leucine-rich proteoglycan family distributed in the extracellular matrix but little is known about its role in osteo/odontogenic differentiation. The objective of this study was to investigate the role of OMD during osteo/odontoblastic differentiation of hDPSCs. Read More

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).
