What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

161. WITHDRAWN: Dental fillings for the treatment of caries in the primary dentition. Full Text available with Trip Pro

WITHDRAWN: Dental fillings for the treatment of caries in the primary dentition. Childhood caries (tooth decay) consists of a form of tooth decay that affects the milk teeth (also known as baby or primary teeth) of children. This may range from tooth decay in a single tooth to rampant caries affecting all the teeth in the mouth. Primary teeth in young children are vital to their development and every effort should be made to retain these teeth for as long as is possible. Dental fillings (...) or restorations have been used as an intervention to repair these damaged teeth. Oral health professionals need to make astute decisions about the type of restorative (filling) material they choose to best manage their patients with childhood caries. This decision is by no means an easy one as remarkable advances in dental restorative materials over the last 10 years has seen the introduction of a multitude of different filling materials claiming to provide the best performance in terms of durability

Lasers for caries removal in deciduous and permanent teeth. Despite considerable improvements in oral health, dental caries continue to be a public health issue. The most frequently used, and universally accepted technique, to remove caries is through mechanical ablation of decayed tissues by means of rotating drills (diamond or tungsten carbide, or both). In the past few decades, the introduction of adhesive filling materials (resin composites) has affected cavity filling procedures (...) caries in deciduous and permanent teeth.We searched the following electronic databases: Cochrane Oral Health's Trials Register (searched 22 June 2016), Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL; 2016, Issue 5) in the Cochrane Library (searched 22 June 2016), MEDLINE Ovid (1946 to 22 June 2016), Embase Ovid (1980 to 22 June 2016), ProQuest Dissertations and Theses (1980 to 22 June 2016), Zetoc (limited to conference proceedings) (1993 to 22 June 2016), and ISI Web of Knowledge (limited

Change in children's oral health-related quality of life following dental treatment under general anaesthesia for the management of dental caries: a systematic review. Dental caries has significant impact on children and their families and may necessitate treatment under general anaesthesia (GA). The use of oral health-related quality-of-life (OHRQoL) measures enables evaluation of dental treatment from a patient's perspective.This systematic review aimed to assess change in OHRQoL in children (...) following treatment under GA for the management of dental caries.A comprehensive search was conducted to identify articles which were assessed against inclusion criteria before data extraction. Studies involving children under 16 years, having treatment for dental caries under GA, were considered eligible. Included studies were quality assessed.Twenty studies were included, which demonstrated significant heterogeneity. Most studies employed a pre-test-post-test design.

165. Fluoride mouthrinses for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Fluoride mouthrinses for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents. Fluoride mouthrinses have been used extensively as a caries-preventive intervention in school-based programmes and by individuals at home. This is an update of the Cochrane review of fluoride mouthrinses for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents that was first published in 2003.The primary objective is to determine the effectiveness and safety of fluoride mouthrinses in preventing dental caries (...) in the child and adolescent population.The secondary objective is to examine whether the effect of fluoride rinses is influenced by:• initial level of caries severity;• background exposure to fluoride in water (or salt), toothpastes or reported fluoride sources other than the study option(s); or• fluoride concentration (ppm F) or frequency of use (times per year).We searched the following electronic databases: Cochrane Oral Health's Trials Register (whole database, to 22 April 2016), the Cochrane Central

Vitamin D intake less than 50-75 nmol/L is associated with increased rates of dental caries. A Canadian cross-sectional study and a systematic review of 24 controlled clinical trials revealed that increased 25(OH)D intake results in decreased incidence of dental caries in children. Vitamin D supplementation is an easily implementable method for reducing caries risk in children.

168. A systematic review on the association between molar incisor hypomineralization and dental caries. (Abstract)

A systematic review on the association between molar incisor hypomineralization and dental caries. Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) is a defect of enamel. The lower strength of the enamel can lead to fractures that predispose for plaque accumulation and caries.This systematic review aimed to assess the association between MIH and caries.Studies involving children of all ages, which reported results on MIH and caries in the permanent dentition, were considered eligible. A search (...) was performed in PubMed and was limited to the period from January 2003 to November 2015, and to studies written in English. Reviews, meta-analyses, and case reports were excluded. The studies were evaluated by use of the Newcastle-Ottawa Quality Assessment Scale (NOS).Seventeen publications were compiled in the review. Most publications reported that children with MIH have higher caries experience. One study did not observe a difference in DMF values among children affected or not by MIH. Three studies

Arginine-Fluoride Dentifrice Is More Effective Than Standard Fluoride Dentifrice In Preventing Dental Caries In Children At Risk Of Caries UTCAT3068, Found CAT view, CRITICALLY APPRAISED TOPICs University: | | ORAL HEALTH EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROGRAM View the CAT / Title Arginine-Fluoride Dentifrice Is More Effective Than Standard Fluoride Dentifrice In Preventing Dental Caries In Children At Risk Of Caries Clinical Question Would the use of 1.5% arginine-fluoride dentifrices, as compared (...) to standard 1450 ppm fluoride dentifrice, result in lower caries prevalence in children at risk of caries? Clinical Bottom Line Deamination of arginine, a semi-essential amino acid, by some oral bacteria results in ammonia production that leads to an alkaline oral environment, thus reducing the cariogenicity of oral biofilms. This effect is possibly the reason for current observation that dentifrice combining arginine (1.5%) and fluoride (1450 ppm) is more effective than 1450 ppm fluoride only dentifrice
