130. In The Era of Increased Fluoride Usage, Between-Meal Snacking May Not Be a Significant Risk Factor for Dental Caries

In The Era of Increased Fluoride Usage, Between-Meal Snacking May Not Be a Significant Risk Factor for Dental Caries UTCAT2665, Found CAT view, CRITICALLY APPRAISED TOPICs University: | | ORAL HEALTH EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROGRAM View the CAT / Title In The Era of Increased Fluoride Usage, Between-Meal Snacking May Not Be a Significant Risk Factor for Dental Caries Clinical Question In this era of fluoride usage, does between-meal snacking adversely influence the development of dental caries (...) ? Clinical Bottom Line For patients who have adequate exposure to fluoride, especially if they brush at least once a day, between-meal snacking does not significantly increase their caries risk. This is supported by a cross-sectional study that concluded the daily consumption of sugar-containing drinks between meals and more than two between-meals snacks were neutralized by the use of systemic fluorides and brushing more than once a day with a fluoridated toothpaste. This is also supported by a systemic

Dental Caries Prevalence is not Significantly Higher in Autistic Children Compared to Non-Autistic Children UTCAT2693, Found CAT view, CRITICALLY APPRAISED TOPICs University: | | ORAL HEALTH EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROGRAM View the CAT / Title Dental Caries Prevalence is not Significantly Higher in Autistic Children Compared to Non-Autistic Children Clinical Question Is there a significantly higher prevalence of dental caries in children patients with autism than in children without (...) the disorder? Clinical Bottom Line Children with autism may have increased caries risk due to poor oral hygiene, modified dietary habits and decreased compliance, but do not necessarily have increased caries prevalence. Based on the limited information provided by literature, the studies on caries and autistic children are inconsistent. Results are in conflict between the studies possibly due to sample selection.

Dental caries were reduced when (...) free-sugars intake was below 10% energy, and benefits may arise from limiting sugars to below 5% energy. This conclusion may be overstated, as it was based on a small subset of studies. Authors' objectives To evaluate the effect of restricting sugar intake on caries in adults and children.
