      Purpose To show through computer-aided design and manufacturing technology combined with novel digital acquisition images and the right restorative material that the technology can provide an easier and predictable workflow for general practitioners. Basic Procedure This case report presents a fully digital treatment of a 59-year-old patient with tooth-supported crowns and provides a detailed step-by-step digital technique to obtain a successful result. Conclusion By avoiding traditional impression and fixed prosthetic techniques, excellent clinical results can be obtained, minimizing the required steps and simplifying the overall procedure. This adds information to the current literature, allowing general practitioners to choose the best treatment option. The function and esthetics remained unaltered over a 1-year follow-up period. No fracture or decementation was observed.

      Purpose This study aims to provide estimates of hospital-based emergency department (ED) visits due to dental conditions in Nebraska and to examine patient-related characteristics associated with ED charges. In addition, this study provides dental-related ED visits and distribution of dentists by county. Methods For the study, we used the State Emergency Department Database for Nebraska for the years 2011 through 2013 and the Health Resources and Services Administration's Area Health Resource File. All ED visits with dental conditions in Nebraska were selected. The primary outcome variable was hospital-based ED charges. Multivariable linear regression model was used to examine the effects of patient-related factors on ED charges. Results During the study period, a total of 9943 dental-related ED visits occurred. Of these, 55.5% patients aged between 25 and 44 years. Thirty-nine percent of all dental ED visits had patients who were self-financed or uninsured. Twenty counties in Nebraska do not have a dentist, and nine counties had more than 50 ED visits per 10,000 population. Patients residing in urban areas paid significantly higher charges than those living in rural towns, small rural towns, or isolated rural areas. The mean and total ED charges attributed to dental conditions for the entire study period were $934 and $9.3 million, respectively. Conclusion Patients who are uninsured, aged 25-44 years, covered by private insurance, and residing in urban areas are identified to be at high risk. There is a need to develop health policies and programs to improve access to dental care in rural states.

      Background As the volume of publications in dentistry continues to increase, clinicians are becoming increasingly reliant on systematic reviews and meta-analyses as their primary source of evidence. With an increase in the dependence on dental meta-analyses, it is important to ensure that they are being conducted with as little bias as possible. Objectives The objective of this systematic review is to assess the quality of therapeutic meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on dental-related topics, and to analyze how quality has changed over time. Methods All relevant studies were searched for through Medline, EMBASE, PsychINFO, and the Cochrane Library. Title, abstract, and full text review, as well as data extraction and quality assessment, were all conducted in duplicate. All reviewers used a pilot-tested extraction form that included the AMSTAR checklist to assess quality of systematic reviews. A logit link function ordinal regression was conducted to evaluate quality improvement trends over time. Results Of the 3832 studies identified, 208 studies were selected for review. Of these, 13% provided an a priori design, 53% screened and extracted data in duplicate, 29% included grey literature, 63% assessed the quality of included studies, and 39% assessed publication bias. As was indicated by the ordinal regression, the quality of meta-analyses, as per the AMSTAR criteria, has increased significantly with time (p<0.001). Conclusions This investigation illustrates that while the quality of meta-analyses of RCTs has been increasing since the start of the millennium, there remains substantial room for improvement within all aspects of systematic review reporting and methodology. Therefore, it is critical for clinicians to take caution when reading systematic reviews and meta-analyses, ensuring that the principals of critical appraisal are applied when interpreting meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials.

  • In defense of flossing: Part II-can we agree it’s premature to claim

      Periodontal diseases (PD) are complex, multifactorial disorders. Effective daily plaque control promotes gingival/periodontal health. Recent meta-analyses and other reviews have found inconclusive evidence to support that tooth flossing promotes gingival/periodontal health. Ideally, the claim should have been that, “at present, we do not have high-quality evidence from well-designed randomized clinical trials (RCTs) to determine whether flossing lowers the risk for periodontal diseases.” Rather than “not proven to be effective,” the lay public may now think that flossing is “almost entirely unhelpful and/or unnecessary.” How does the dental community communicate the nuances of this topic' Herein, we examine the key structural issues underlying this area of research. We assert that effective flossing between specific teeth can promote gingival/periodontal health. Further, we explore the nuances of for whom this may be true and untrue, why our evidence is lacking and what can be done to clarify the effectiveness of flossing on clinical outcomes.

      Objective Twenty percent of the elderly US population is diagnosed with diabetes. The elderly are at a higher risk of developing serious complications from diabetes. Regular professional dental care may help control blood glucose levels and thereby diabetes complications. Since such potential benefits could play a clinically significant role in diabetes management, our aim was to identify and review relevant evidence among the older population. Materials and Methods Electronic databases were searched for periodontal intervention studies using modified search terms from previous systematic reviews. The final search date was October 31, 2016. Results Twenty-five publications (22 studies) were included in our final review. They varied in study design, duration, therapeutic interventions, and systemic outcomes measured. No study restricted its participants to seniors, and therefore, a mean age of 55 years or more was used. Fourteen studies showed significant reductions in serum glycated hemoglobin levels, but 8 studies showed nonsignificant changes. Conclusion The evidence suggests a beneficial effect of receiving periodontal care on serum glycated hemoglobin and systemic biomarker levels in older persons with T2DM. Such care would be considered a novel, safe, and acceptable adjunct to current medical management of T2DM in older individuals. The dearth of studies restricted to the elderly represents a gap in knowledge that needs to be addressed in the United States.

      Objective The study aimed to assess the efficacy of erbium laser technology compared with traditional drilling for caries removal. Methods A systematic search was conducted through Medline via PubMed, Embase, Cochrane databases, CNKI till December 2016. Randomised controlled trials, quasi-randomized controlled trials, or controlled clinical trials with data comparing the efficacy of erbium laser technology versus traditional drilling for caries removal were included. Results Fourteen studies were selected in our meta-analysis. Erbium laser technology showed an increased time when removing caries compared with drilling (mean difference: 3.48, 95% confidence interval: 1.90-5.06, P < .0001). However, erbium laser technology reduced the requirement for local anesthesia (risk ratio: 0.28, 95% confidence interval: 0.13-0.62, P = .002). Erbium laser technology was also not significantly different to traditional drilling with regard to restoration loss, pulpal vitality, and postoperative sensitivity. Conclusions Erbium laser technology showed an increased time for cavity preparation compared with traditional drilling. However, erbium laser technology reduced the requirement for local anesthesia. There was no significant difference between erbium laser technology and traditional drilling regarding restoration loss, pulpal vitality, and postoperative sensitivity.

      Objective Estimate the prevalence of halitosis (with subjective and objective methods), evaluate the immediate effect of chewing gum on volatile sulfur compounds (VSC), assess the perception on halitosis of dentistry students and estimate the distribution of positive and negative frequencies, when comparing objective and subjective methods for the diagnosis of halitosis. Methods The study was performed on a sample of dentistry students attending the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at the University of Barcelona. A questionnaire about halitosis perception, a clinical examination, organoleptic test and gas chromatography was performed to determine presence of halitosis, also the subjects were given chewing gum to modify their breath, and gas chromatography was carried out to evaluate possible changes in VSC. Results The sample was comprised of 80 individuals. 27 (33.75%) perceived halitosis during the period of evaluation; the organoleptic test was positive in 38 subjects (47.5%); and individuals positive for halitosis in gas chromatography was distributed as follows: H2S 25 (31.25%), CH3SH 28 (35%), (CH3)2S 70 (87.5%). A statistical difference before and after chewing gum (p<0.05) was found for each VCS; a difference in frequencies was observed between the variable organoleptic test and H2S, (p<0.05) and between organoleptic test and (CH3)2S (p<0.001). There was no significant difference (p>0.05) between the positive and negative frequencies retrieved between the variable organoleptic test and CH3SH, organoleptic test and the student halitosis perception. Conclusion The prevalence of halitosis in the sample studied is high, considering that it is comprised by healthy individuals. The relationship between the organoleptic test and gas chromatography is not completely established. Chewing gum could be considered a therapeutic alternative to decrease or neutralize the amount of volatile sulfur compounds presents in oral breath.

      This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to compare clinical outcomes, width of keratinized tissue (KT) around teeth, following the soft tissue alternatives and free gingival grafts (FGGs) procedures. The specific graft materials that were explored were: extracellular matrix membrane (ECM), bilayer collagen membrane (BCM), living cellular construct (LCC) and acellular dermal matrix (ADM). Four different databases were queried to identify human controlled clinical trials (HCCT) and randomized controlled clinical trials (RCCT) that fulfilled the eligibility criteria. Relevant studies were identified by three independent reviewers, compiling the results of the electronic and hand searches. Studies identified through electronic and hand searches were reviewed by title, abstract and full-text using Covidence Software. Primary outcome in the present study was change in the width of KT. Results of the included studies were pooled to estimate the effect size, expressed as weighted mean differences and 95% confidence interval (CI). A random effect model was used to perform the meta-analyses. 638 articles were screened by title, 55 articles were screened by abstracts and 34 full-text articles were reviewed. Data on quantitative changes in width of KT were provided in seven studies. Quantitative analyses revealed a significant difference in changes in width of keratinized tissue between patients treated with soft tissue alternatives and patients treated with FGGs (p < 0.001). The weighted mean difference of changes in the width of KT was -1.39 (95% CI: -1.82, -0.96; heterogeneity I= 70.89%), indicating patients who were treated with soft tissue alternatives gained 1.39 mm less KT width compared to the patients who received free gingival graft. Based on the clinical outcomes, the results of this systematic review and meta-analysis showed that soft tissue alternatives result in an increased width of KT. Patients in the soft tissue alternatives group obtained 1.39 mm less KT compared to the patients in the FGGs group.

      Background and objective With 39359 entries on Pubmed, periodontal medicine has a prominent position in periodontal research. Good patient care requires well advised physicians and whereas the dental community is informed about the relationships between periodontal diseases and an increasing number of systemic pathologies, we wondered whether general practitioners were too. Thus we aimed to evaluate their knowledge of the links between periodontal and systemic diseases. Methods To this end, we sent an electronic questionnaire to the 2350 general practitioners registered to the URPS of Midi-Pyrénées, France. They were asked about their practice, their attitude during a medical exam and their knowledge about periodontal diseases. Results The analysis of 222 properly answered questionnaires showed that while most of general practitioners are aware of the relationships between periodontal diseases and diabetes or cardiovascular diseases, the majority of them are unaware that obesity, respiratory and joint diseases are also concerned. Indeed, 94% of the questioned subjects consider their insight of periodontal diseases to be insufficient. Nevertheless, more than half of the interrogated physicians cared about their patients’ oral health and dental care. Conclusions education regarding relationships between periodontal and systemic diseases must be improved among general practitioners who are in the front line to address high-risk patients to a periodontist.

      Objective Patients with periodontal disease and the dental professionals responsible for their care want to know which teeth are expected to respond favorably to periodontal treatment and which teeth are likely to be lost in the short and long term. A number of different periodontal prognosis systems have been previously proposed but do not consider important patient level factors, such as smoking and diabetic control, in the calculation of the expected outcome and often use subjective measures that introduce potential inaccuracies. The aim of this report is to translate the best available evidence on periodontal prognosis into a clinical model to facilitate decision-making and improve patient outcomes. Methods Criteria for an ideal prognostic system were proposed and used to assess the previously reported models. With an emphasis on the inclusion of patient-level modifiers and the exclusive use of objective parameters, a new evidence-based model was developed. Results This report proposes a new tooth-level prognosis model that uses nine evidence-based quantifiable parameters to provide a prognosis of good, doubtful, poor or irrational to treat. Six tooth level risk predictors (bone loss:age, pocket depth, furcation involvement, infrabony defects, anatomical factors and mobility) and three patient level modifiers (smoking, diabetes, and bleeding on probing) are used to determine the expected course of disease with specific reference to the suitability of the tooth for future dental treatment. Conclusions Patient-level modifiers must be considered when determining the prognosis of a tooth with periodontal disease. The model proposed in this report is based on the best available evidence for factors affecting tooth survival, and has been designed to be as simple and objective as possible to facilitate its adoption in clinical practice. It will be retrospectively and prospectively validated to determine its ability to accurately predict the course of disease.

  • In defense of flossing: can we agree it’s premature to claim
           flossing is ineffective?

      Current evidence pertaining to the effectiveness of flossing and caries prevention is potentially being misinterpreted by health oversight bodies, which may have significant implications for current and future public flossing guidelines. We identify and discuss several methodological deficiencies including the lack of validated measures of flossing skill, over-reliance on self-reported flossing behavior and the lack of current guidelines on how to interpret and apply evidence-based findings to specific clinical scenarios that are present in the studies of flossing effectiveness included in the Cochran Review. As such, we argue that it is premature for health oversight bodies to conclude that flossing is ineffective in the prevention of dental caries. Our research group, which is funded by the National Institutes of Health, is developing valid and reliable provider-observed measure of tooth brushing and flossing skill that may help promote higher quality flossing evidence in the future.

      Objective This case report illustrates the use of evidence based practice in formulating a comprehensive dental treatment plan for a patient who presented himself with signs of oral health debilitation accompanying methamphetamine abuse called “meth mouth” with the goal of providing dental care practitioners in Saudi Arabia with an insight into the global problem of methamphetamine abuse and its impact on oral health. Background This report documents the case of a 22 year old male patient who reported to the clinic with rampant caries caused due to MA abuse exacerbated by poor oral hygiene and smoking habit. Method The treatment plan of this present case was formulated on the lines of the evidence based dentistry approach. A clinical question was composed based on the PICO (Problem, Intervention, Comparison, and Outcome) format to identify past studies and case reports on meth mouth. A standard search was conducted on PubMed Central. Standard guidelines on the treatment of meth-mouth were extracted from the website of the American Dental Association. Results A total of 2 systematic reviews, 7 review articles, 4 epidemiological studies, 5 case reports and 1 American Dental Association guidelines were found. Conclusion Accelerated dental decay leading to rampant caries in young and middle aged adults is a characteristic oral finding in methamphetamine abusers. The most important factor that affects the prognosis of dental care is complete cessation of MA use by the patient.
