      Objective To evaluate the presence of oral opportunistic pathogens among stroke survivors, both before and after oral health care interventions. Methods A multicenter randomized clinical trial was conducted on hospitalized stroke survivors. Those in the control group were given standard care of oral hygiene (a manual toothbrush and toothpaste), whereas those in the test group were given intense care of oral hygiene (a powered toothbrush and 1% chlorhexidine oral gel). Oral clinical assessments were carried out, and microbiological samples were collected, using concentrated oral rinse samples at 3 time points: baseline, 3 months, and 6 months. Results The prevalence of oral yeast was significantly reduced in the test group at 6 months (P < .05), but no significant difference was observed over time. A significant reduction was observed in the prevalence of Staphylococcus aureus (P < .01) and aerobic and facultative gram-negative bacilli over time (P < .05), but there were no significant differences noted between groups at 6 months. Candida albicans and Klebsiella pneumoniae were the prominent pathogens determined throughout the trial. Kluyvera strains have also been isolated from this cohort. Conclusion Oral hygiene intervention using a powered tooth brush and 1% chlorhexidine oral gel was effective in reducing the prevalence of oral opportunistic pathogens.

      Objectives Hospital-based emergency department (ED) visits for dental problems have been on the rise. The objectives of this study are to provide estimates of hospital-based ED visits with dental conditions in New York State and to examine the impact of Medicaid reimbursement fee for dental services on the utilization of EDs with dental conditions. Methods New York State Emergency Department Database for the year 2009-2013 and Health Resources and Services Administration's Area Health Resource File were used. All ED visits with diagnosis for dental conditions were selected for analysis. Results The present study found a total of 325,354 ED visits with dental conditions. The mean age of patient was 32.4 years. A majority of ED visits were made by those aged 25-44 years (49%). Whites comprised 52.1% of ED visits. Proportion of Medicaid increased from 22% (in 2009) to 41.3% (in 2013). For Medicaid patients, the mean ED charges and aggregated ED charges were $811.4 and $88.1 million, respectively. Eleven counties had fewer than 4 dentists per 10,000 population in New York State. Conclusion High-risk groups identified from the study are those aged 25-44 years, uninsured, covered by Medicaid and private insurance, and residing in low-income areas. The study highlights the need for increased Medicaid reimbursement for dentists and improves access to preventive dental care especially for the vulnerable groups.

      Objective Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) by proper design, conduct, analysis, and reporting provide reliable information in clinical care. Reporting of RCT abstracts is of equal importance as there is evidence that many clinicians will change their clinical decisions based on RCT abstracts. The reporting quality of RCT abstracts has been suboptimal. It is not clear whether the reporting quality is related to the journal metrics. The main objective of this study is to conduct a cross-sectional survey to evaluate the reporting quality of RCTs of periodontal diseases in journal abstracts and to perform a bibliometric analysis. The null hypothesis was that there is no association between the journal metrics (5-year impact factor, Eigenfactor score, and Article Influence Score), abstract metrics (word count, and number of authors), journal endorsement of Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT), and the overall quality of reporting of CONSORT RCT abstract–modified checklist questions. Materials CONSORT RCT abstract extension checklist with explanation and elaboration was used and modified to assess the quality of reporting of RCT abstracts of periodontal diseases in the journal abstracts in the year 2012. Bibliometric analysis of journal metrics (5-year impact factor, Eigenfactor score, and Article Influence Score) and abstract metrics (number of authors and abstract word count), the geographic distribution, and the CONSORT-endorsing journal abstracts was compared with the reporting quality of RCT abstracts in periodontal diseases. Calibration and intrarater agreement were done before the data collection and analysis. A second reviewer was consulted for independent evaluation and clarification as needed. For descriptive analysis, the values of continuous variables were expressed as median and interquartile ranges (IQRs) and as proportion percent for binary categorical variables. For association analysis between the binary (yes/no) response variable and the continuous variable, the Mann–Whitney test (for independent samples) was used. For examining the association between 2 categorical variables, Fisher's exact test was used. The chi-square test was performed to examine the association between 2 sets of binary response variables (yes/no). A P value of < .05 was considered statistically significant. All analyses were conducted using SAS, version 9.4. Results A total of 198 RCT abstracts of periodontal diseases in the year 2012 from 57 journals were included in the study. Fifteen journals, listed as endorsers of CONSORT, contributed 108 RCT abstracts. Four journals (Journal of Periodontology, Journal of Clinical Periodontology, Clinical Oral Implants Research, and European Journal of Oral Implantology) contributed 84 of 198 RCT abstracts in 2012. European countries contributed the majority (n = 81, 40.91%) of RCT abstracts. Among 31 countries in this study, United States contributed the most RCTs (n = 28, 14.14%) followed by India (24, 12.12%), Italy (n = 22, 11.11%), and Brazil (n = 20, 10.1%). The frequency of journal metrics were 5-year impact factor (median 2.316; IQR: 1.439-2.970); Eigenfactor score (0.00474; 0.00202-0.01395); and Article Influence Score (0.553; 0.382-0.755). The number of authors in 198 RCT abstracts ranged between 2 and 20 (median n = 5, IQR: 4-6), whereas the word count ranged between 48 and 569 (median 235, IQR: 205-269). All RCT abstracts reported the experimental interventions (checklist question #5, frequency 100%). Some items were almost always reported–participant eligibility criteria (#3, 99%); comparison interventions (#6, 99.5%); specific objective or hypothesis (#7, 99.5%); primary outcome (#8, 99.5%); and reporting trial results as a summary (#16, 98.5%). All RCT abstracts never reported how the allocations were concealed (#11, 0) and the source of funding for the trials (#23, 0). Some items were almost always never reported–the number of participants included in the analysis for each intervention (#15, 2%); trial registration number (#21, 2.5%); name of trial register (#22, 2.5%); and how the randomization or sequence generation was done (#22). Dismal reporting was noted in many checklist questions including the identification of the study as randomized in the title #1, 51%; design of the trial #2, 32.8%; trial setting #4, 3.5%; randomization #10, 3.5%; blinding #12, 21.7%; details about blinding #13, 8.1%; number of participants randomized to each intervention #14, 26.3%; effect size #17, 13.6%; precision of the estimate of the effect #18, 6.1%; and adverse effects #19, 14.1%. Strikingly, there was a very high reporting of statistical significance #25, 92.4%. European countries, in particular, reported relatively bett...

      Objectives Scientific literature has established that the periodontal condition during pregnancy could be associated with obstetric/neonatal morbidity, and these effects have an important relationship with problems during childhood and cardiovascular disease in adulthood. This umbrella review aimed to summarize the results about the association between maternal periodontitis and obstetric complications (low birth weight, preterm delivery, and preeclampsia) and identify the gaps in the scientific literature. Methods An umbrella review of systematic reviews with or without meta-analysis was performed. Quality evaluation and descriptive analysis of the characteristics of the included studies were conducted. Results Nineteen systematic reviews/meta-analyses were considered. In total, the systematic reviews included 99 observational studies. Most of the reviews established an association between maternal periodontitis and a higher risk of low birth weight, preterm delivery, and preeclampsia. The magnitude and statistical significance of this relationship are influenced by the context in which the studies have been conducted. Gaps were identified in the definition/evaluation of periodontal disease, criteria of gestational age for study purposes, and potential confounders, among others. Conclusions Although scientific literature has established an association among the analyzed pathologies, conceptual and methodological gaps were identified, and they should be considered as integral components when this association is investigated.

      Objectives To systematically review the current dental literature regarding clinical accuracy of guided implant surgery and to analyze the involved clinical factors. Material and Methods PubMed and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials were searched. Meta-analysis and meta-regression analysis were performed. Clinical studies with the following outcome measurements were included: (1) angle deviation, (2) deviation at the entry point, and (3) deviation at the apex. The involved clinical factors were further evaluated. Results Fourteen clinical studies from 1951 articles initially identified met the inclusion criteria. Meta-regression analysis revealed a mean deviation at the entry point of 1.25 mm (95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.22-1.29), 1.57 mm (95% CI: 1.53-1.62) at the apex, and 4.1° in angle (95% CI: 3.97-4.23). A statistically significant difference (P < .001) was observed in angular deviations between the maxilla and mandible. Partially guided surgery showed a statistically significant greater deviation in angle (P < .001), at the entry point (P < .001), and at the apex (P < .001) compared with totally guided surgery. The outcome of guided surgery with flapless approach indicated significantly more accuracy in angle (P < .001), at the entry point (P < .001), and at apex (P < .001). Significant differences were observed in angular deviation based on the use of fixation screw (P < .001). Conclusions The position of guide, guide fixation, type of guide, and flap approach could influence the accuracy of computer-aided implant surgery. A totally guided system using fixation screws with a flapless protocol demonstrated the greatest accuracy. Future clinical research should use a standardized measurement technique for improved accuracy.

  • Evidence-Based Dentistry: Two Decades and Beyond

      Background In 1999, the American Dental Association (ADA) proffered a definition of the term “evidence-based dentistry”, which is still very much used to this day. It stated that “…evidence-based dentistry is an approach to oral health care that requires the judicious integration of systematic assessments of clinically relevant scientific evidence, relating to the patient's oral and medical condition and history, with the dentist's clinical expertise and the patient's treatment needs and preferences”. Concerted research over the past two decades have defined and characterized the protocols that obtain the qualitative and quantitative consensus of the best evidence base. This component of evidence-based dentistry, which is referred to as evidence-based dental research, is brought about as comparative effectiveness research with the research synthesis design. The best evidence base is judiciously utilized to generate evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, which in turn inform evidence-based dental practice. Discussion At this juncture, the complexity of the construct of evidence-based dentistry dictates several avenues of current and future inquiry and development. The most urgent and important of these is undoubtedly to craft and validate novel didactic and practical methodologies to teach evidence-based dentistry – both research and practice – to the next generation of dental researchers and clinical dentists, and to optimize the integration of evidence-based dentistry in the dental curriculum. Secondarily, but certainly not of lesser importance, is the need to open and expand new research opportunities in sub-domains critical to successful evidence-based dental practice, such as stakeholder engagement, tele-dentistry, patient-centered care, individual patient data analysis, and health literacy of the patients and the caregivers. Conclusion The course that has led evidence-based dentistry from its infancy in 1999 to a state of relative recognition, if not acceptance across academic and private clinical dentistry in the US and abroad that the field enjoys today, has been arduous. The concerted efforts by researchers and clinicians were aided considerably by the political environment, which, over the years, proffered funding to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Patient-Centered Outcome Research Institute (PCORI). These have been significant catalysts of the field of comparative effectiveness research and evidence-based research in medicine and in dentistry, and have fostered and defended the pursuit of evidence-based endeavors in translational healthcare. The road ahead does not promise to be easier in next two decades. In fact, it has become all the murkier and more complicated now as phrases such as “science-based” and “evidence-based” have presently been banned and declared politically incorrect.

      Background The aim of this study was to assess the quality and outline the differences among recommendations of published clinical practice guidelines (CPG) for the management of bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw. Methods We conducted a systematic literature search in PubMed, Cochrane, EMBASE, Web of Science and Google website. We selected CPGs supported by a non-governmental organization or nationally provided related to bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw in adults, in English language, dated from January 2008 onwards. The validity of each included CPG was appraised according to two validated appraisal tools for CPG that were independently used by two reviewers. Results We identified 724 articles, of which 13 were retained based on our eligibility criteria. Most CPGs were of good quality based on the appraisal tools for CPG used in this study. Conclusion We did not find consensus on all the recommendations of the evaluated CPGs. Thus, each clinical case must be accessed individually, considering the risks and benefits on the proposed dental treatment.
