Reasons why low-income people in urban areas do not drink tap water.

J Am Dent Assoc 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Background: Despite its higher cost and potential environmental effect compared with those of tap water, bottled water consumption has been increasing over the past decade, especially in low-income communities in which children are at a higher risk of developing caries.

Methods: The authors used a systematic sequential sampling design for the Water Consumption Survey to collect information about water consumption beliefs and practices from clients attending 4 public health centers in Los Angeles County (LAC). The authors used health belief model constructs to examine why some low-income residents in LAC do not drink tap water. Read More

Tobacco-use patterns and self-reported oral health outcomes: A cross-sectional assessment of the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health study, 2013-2014.

J Am Dent Assoc 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Rasch model of the Child Perceptions Questionnaire for oral health-related quality of life: A step forward toward accurate outcome measures.

J Am Dent Assoc 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Background: Oral health is related to major chronic diseases and contributes to general health. Oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) is, therefore, an essential part of well-being. Measurement of OHRQoL over the lifetime requires accurate and comparable outcome measures that are suitable for different age groups. Read More

Differential alveolar bone modeling after orthodontic retraction.

J Am Dent Assoc 2019 Apr;150(4):313-320

Background: Distinct, irregular, and hard nodular protuberances similar to the morphologic features of exostoses can occasionally be noted on the labial surface of the alveolar bone after orthodontic retraction of anterior teeth in adults. These have long been believed to be exostoses developed in response to loading. However, specific characterization of this phenomenon has not been documented. Read More

Carious lesion remineralizing potential of fluoride- and calcium-containing toothpastes: A laboratory study.

J Am Dent Assoc 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Background: The authors conducted a laboratory study to determine the carious lesion remineralization and fluoridation potential of fluoride (F)- and calcium-containing toothpastes.

Methods: The authors created early carious lesions in bovine enamel specimens and assigned them to 7 treatment groups on the basis of their surface Vickers microhardness: Clinpro Tooth Crème (Clinpro) (3M ESPE), CTx4 Gel 1100 (CTx4) (Oral Biotech), Enamelon Fluoride Toothpaste (Enamelon) (Premier Dental), MI Paste ONE (MI-One) (GC America), Crest Cavity Protection Toothpaste (Crest) (Procter & Gamble), and 2 F-dose controls (low F, high F). The authors pH cycled the specimens for 10 days by using an established model, determined changes in surface microhardness, calculated percentage of surface microhardness recovery (%SMHr; primary outcome variable), and measured enamel F uptake (EFU).

Efficacy of a 3% potassium nitrate mouthrinse for the relief of dentinal hypersensitivity: An 8-week randomized controlled study.

J Am Dent Assoc 2019 Mar;150(3):204-212

Background: Mouthrinses containing potassium salts have been shown to be effective for the relief of dentinal hypersensitivity (DH) when used adjunctively to toothbrushing with a nonsensitivity toothpaste.

Methods: The authors conducted a randomized, 8-week, single-center, examiner-blinded, parallel-group clinical trial with 191 participants with DH. Participants were randomized to twice-daily use of either 3% potassium nitrate (KNO) mouthrinse plus fluoride toothpaste or the same fluoride toothpaste alone. Read More

Counterpoint: The 21st-century paradigm for recognition of dental specialties is not much different than the existing paradigm.

J Am Dent Assoc 2019 Mar;150(3):200-203

Background: The basis and rationale for recognition of specialties in the health care-related professions are similar. Recognition criteria are common across health care-related professions and include the demonstrated ability to form a certifying board, a distinct and well-defined field that requires unique knowledge and skills beyond general professional education, knowledge and skills that are separate and distinct from any other specialty, active contribution to research needs of the profession, direct benefit to some aspect of patient care, and the existence of formal, advanced education programs. A new paradigm that has been outlined does not appear to be significantly different from this existing paradigm. Read More

Do buffered local anesthetics provide more successful anesthesia than nonbuffered solutions in patients with pulpally involved teeth requiring dental therapy?: A systematic review.

J Am Dent Assoc 2019 Mar;150(3):165-177

Background: The authors conducted a systematic review that addresses the following population, intervention, comparison, outcome question: "In adults requiring dental therapy with pulpally involved teeth, what is the comparative efficacy of buffered local anesthetics (LAs) compared with that of nonbuffered LAs in achieving anesthetic success?"

Types Of Studies Reviewed: The authors searched MEDLINE, Scopus, Cochrane Library, ClinicalTrials.gov, World Health Organization International Trials Registry Platform, OpenGrey, Google Scholar Beta, and 2 textbooks to identify double-blinded randomized controlled trials in which researchers directly compared the efficacy of buffered and nonbuffered LAs in adult participants, as well as any associated side effects. Furthermore, they checked the reference lists of all included and excluded studies to identify any further trials. Read More
