The aims of this work were: To determine what percentage of firsttime patients to the Dental Emergency Department at the School of Dentistry of Buenos Aires University had taken medications to relieve or treat their condition. To determine what percentage of these had used selfmedication, and which were the most frequently taken medicines. To determine whether there is an association between selfmedication and educational level, and between selfmedication and whether the patient has health coverage. This was an observational, crosssectional study which reviewed 567 clinical histories of patients who visited the Dental Emergency Department from March 2015 to September 2016...

The in vivo response of osteocytes to different force magnitudes soon after they are applied remains to be elucidated. The aim of this study was to examine the early effects of applying a very light (LF: 0,16 N) and a very strong (SF: 2,26 N) orthodontic force during one hour on apoptosis and osteopontin (OPN) expression on alveolar bone osteocytes, in rats. Results: LF: compared to the control group, they showed a significant increase in OPN expression, and a significant decrease in the number of TUNELpositive osteocytes...

In compressed dental arches with mild to moderate crowding, space can be gained during the alignment phase to help improve tooth location. The aim of this study was to compare transverse measurements before and after the alignment stage in two groups: Group A treated with passive selfligating brackets, (Damon System) and Group B with conventional brackets (Roth philosophy). The change in transverse diameter between teeth was measured on dental casts taken before and after orthodontic alignment. Twenty four patients of both sexes aged 13 to 36 years, with moderate tooth crowding (4 to 6 mm), were treated...

The use of saliva for analyzing biological compounds has recently been expanded. The aim of this study was to analyze the correlation between specific dietary sources of n3 and n6 fatty acids (FA) and their salivary levels to evaluate their role as intake markers. Seventynine healthy volunteers were included. A validated food frequency questionnaire was used for data collection and Interfood v.1.3 software was employed to quantify food intake. Salivary samples were collected following international standards and FA profile was determined by gas liquidchromatography...

Full edentulism is characterized by the complete loss of permanent teeth, resulting in aesthetic, structural and functional changes which can negatively impact quality of life, and which are minimized through rehabilitation with complete dentures. The aim of this study was to compare oral healthrelated quality of life in patients with complete original dentures three months after installation of new dentures and two years after fabrication of new complete removable dentures. In this longitudinal comparative study, 15 volunteers of both genders, aged 50 to 82 years, who sought treatment at the Department of Dentistry of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, participated in the preparation of new dentures...

Tumor hypoxia is an important indicator of cancer prognosis. Among the different genes that are upregulated by hypoxia is carbonic anhydrase IX, which combines carbon dioxide and water to form bicarbonate and hydrogen. Although expression of this enzyme is very low in normal tissues, carbonic anhydrase IX is overexpressed in several types of cancer. The aim of the present work was to analyze carbonic anhydrase IX expression in the two most frequent potentially malignant oral disorders: oral lichen planus and oral leukoplakia...

Periodontal disease and its inflammatory response have been related to adverse outcomes in pregnancy such as preterm birth, preeclampsia and low birth weight. This study analyzed systemic inflammatory response in patients with high risk of preterm delivery and its relationship to periodontal disease. A pilot study was conducted for a case and control study, on 23 patients at risk of preterm delivery and 23 patients without risk of preterm delivery as controls. Exclusion criteria were patients who had received periodontal treatment, antibiotic or antimicrobial agents within the past three months, or with infections or baseline diseases such as diabetes or hypercholesterolemia...

The aims of this study were to analyze whether age, tooth type and sex are related to radiographically visible extrusion of filling material as an unintended outcome in teeth undergoing endodontic treatment with a thermoplastic obturation technique (Calamus® or GuttaCore®) and to determine whether the presence of such overfilling is associated to postoperative pain. We selected 120 teeth with diagnoses involving vital pulp and indication for endodontic treatment. Biomechanical preparation was performed using the Protaper Next® system with X2 or X3 master apical file...

The aim of this study was to assess the impact of Molar-Incisor Hypomineralization (MIH) on Oral Health-Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL) in schoolchildren from a public educational institution in Bucaramanga, Colombia. Eighty-eight 7- to 10-year-olds took part in the study; of whom half had MIH. The translated and adapted version of the Child Perceptions Questionnaire (CPQ 8-10) was applied by means of an interview.

Major gingival-periodontal changes according to age have been observed in both diabetic and non-diabetic rats. Male Wistar rats weighing 200-220 g were divided into two groups: 1) Nondiabetic (ND) and 2) Diabetic (D) by receiving an intraperitoneal (ip) dose of streptozotocin (STZ) (50 mg /kg). Animals from both groups (ND and D) were euthanized at 4, 8, 12, 17 y 25 weeks after treatment with saline solution or STZ. Glycemia values in ND rats were 5 to 6 mmol/L, while in D, glycemia increased progressively between weeks 4 and 25, with values ranging from 18...

The aim of the present study was to identify the relationship among instruments used to screen and diagnose temporomandibular disorders (TMD). A retrospective study was conducted using medical records of patients with temporomandibular disorder who had visited the institution for initial assessment between January and December 2015. Medical history and physical examination data were collected, particularly those focusing on the diagnosis of TMD and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) function. The following instruments were used to assess the severity of the TMD signs and symptoms: the Fonseca Anamnestic index (FAI), the Helkimo index (HI), the American Association of Orofacial Pain Questionnaire (AAOPQ) and the Jaw Symptom & Oral Habit Questionnaire (JSOHQ)...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of 10 wt% benzalkonium chloride (TB-BAC) or 10 wt% cetylpyridinium chloride (TB-CPC) on the antimicrobial properties of the orthodontic adhesive primer, Transbond XTT (TB). Antimicrobial activity was assessed using a zone of inhibition diffusion test and the release of the antimicrobial compounds was monitored by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Shear bond strength (SBS) was tested using bovine enamel. Control, TB, specimens failed to demonstrate intrinsic antibacterial activity at 1, 7 and 14 days; whereas, TB-BAC and TB-CPC showed antibacterial effects at all times...

Knowledge of the best way to evaluate changes in transverse dimension produced by orthodontic treatment enables the estimation of potential space that may be generated and optimizes planning. The aim of this study was to compare two methods for measuring changes in transverse dimension following tooth alignment by passive self-ligating system: Method 1 (M1) considering palatal landmarks and Method 2 (M2) considering dental landmarks. Subjects were 12 patients of both sexes, aged 15 to 24 years old, with moderate crowding (Nance discrepancy -4 to -6 mm), who were treated with the Damon System at the Department of Orthodontics of the School of Dentistry, Buenos Aires University...
