21. Nine years’ trend of dental caries and severe early childhood caries among 3–6-year-old children in Babol, Northern Iran Full Text available with Trip Pro

Nine years’ trend of dental caries and severe early childhood caries among 3–6-year-old children in Babol, Northern Iran Malnutrition, pain, and insomnia are common adverse effects of early dental caries among 3-6-year-old children. To increase our understanding of the dental caries status which will help in the control and prevention of it, this study aimed to assess the trend of dental caries, Severe Early Childhood Caries (S-ECC) and its related factors among 3-6-year-old children during (...) of significance was set at ≤ 0.05.The trend of dental caries and S-ECC rose among 3-6-year-old children over a 9-year period. Of the children, 26.3% were caries free.

22. Silver Diamine Fluoride Is Effective at Arresting Early Dentin Caries in Children Compared to No Treatment

papers initially located. Ten studies investigated the re-mineralizing effect on early enamel caries using silicon tetrafluoride, fluoride gel, silver diamine fluoride or sodium fluoride. Seven of these studies reported an arresting effect on dentin caries after application of silver diamine fluoride or nano-silver fluoride. Five studies evaluated the use of 38% silver diamine fluoride to arrest dentin caries in children. In the reviewed studies, dental professionals were satisfied with clinical (...) their results with a third researcher. The studies were only used if the clinical trials were found to show remineralization or arresting effects on caries in children. The studies were further categorized into remineralizing of early enamel caries and arresting of dentin caries. They used the initial active dentin caries surfaces at baseline compared to the total number of arrested dental caries after treatment to calculate the rate of caries arrest. Caries were considered active if soft by “gentle probing

27. Lower Levels of Caregiver Literacy and Education Increase the Child?s Risk of Developing Childhood Caries

caries risk? Clinical Bottom Line For pediatric patients, the parent's/caregiver’s lower level of literacy regarding caries-promoting diets does increase the child’s risk of developing caries. This is supported by various systematic reviews and multiple studies of parents with high and low levels of education/literacy regarding diet and overall oral health practices. There are multiple studies on how diet is related to the development of dental caries, but further research needs to be done analyzing (...) oral health literacy of caregivers and its influence on childhood caries.

studies/453 children) Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Key results The systematic review included case control, cross-sectional, and cohort observational studies. Meta-analysis was performed on two of the cross-sectional studies, showing that breastfed children were at less risk of dental caries than bottle-fed children (OR: 0.43, 95% CI: 0.23-0.08). The authors concluded that breastfeeding was more protective compared to bottle-feeding when it came to early childhood caries.

30. Silver Diamine Fluoride is More Effective in Arresting and Preventing Root Caries in the Elderly Population than Sodium Fluoride Varnish

on these facts the articles should be considered valid. Perspective: Although the study was conducted on institutionalized dependent elderly population, it is expected that the results would still be the same if it is performed on functionally independent elderly populations considering that the two materials are professionally applied. Applicability Due to improvement in dental awareness, many people now retain their to older age but gingival recession exposes the root. Thus prevalence of root caries (...) is high in the elderly population, therefore preventing and arresting caries is of high significance in dental practice. Although SDF has a higher percentage of root caries prevention than sodium fluoride varnish, SDF causes black-staining of the carious lesion when used to arrest caries lesions, and this may limit its acceptability by patients. However, SDF is less costly in terms of treatment and labor; SDF only required one application per year as opposed to sodium fluoride varnish that required

Diagnostic accuracy of cone-beam computed tomography in detecting secondary caries under composite fillings: an in vitro study The aim of this in vitro study was to assess the diagnostic performance of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in the detection of secondary carious lesions under composite resin fillings applied to different types of cavities.Occlusal cavities (O) (n=18), occlusal cavities with mesial or distal component (MO/DO) (n=30), and mesial-occlusal-distal cavities (MOD) (n=30 (...) ) were prepared in seventy eight extracted human posterior teeth. In half of the cavities in each group, artificial secondary caries lesions were simulated. All cavities were restored by using composite resin. All specimens were embedded in silicone and they were positioned to have approximal contacts. CBCT imaging was done and data were evaluated two times with two week interval by two observers, using a five-point confidence scale. Intra- and inter-observer agreements were calculated with Kappa
