OBJECTIVES: The aims of this study were to develop a German version of the Early Childhood Oral Health Impact Scale (ECOHIS), a measure of oral health-related quality of life in pre-school-age children, and to assess the instrument's reliability and validity. METHODS: The original English version of the ECOHIS questionnaire was translated into German (ECOHIS-G) by a forward-backward translation method. A total of 336 children aged 0 to 5 years and their caregivers who were recruited at the Department of Paediatric Dentistry in Vienna, Austria, participated in this study...

OBJECTIVES: Oral lichen planus (OLP) and oral lichenoid lesions (OLL) are chronic inflammatory diseases whose symptoms can impair patient's quality of life (QoL). Psychological factors seem to play an important role in these diseases. This study aimed to determine the impact of oral health and anxiety levels on the QoL of patients with OLP and OLL. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study composed of OLP and OLL patients and a control group matched by age and sex with no autoimmune/inflammatory or malignant oral lesions...

OBJECTIVES: The aim was to determine the frequency of Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD)-based pain diagnoses and dynamic/static tests-based pain diagnoses, and to assess the agreement of palpation tests with static/dynamic tests. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty-six (N = 86) adult patients with Lyme disease (mean age 57.0 ± 14.3 years; male/female ratio was 42/44) were examined according to techniques described in the RDC/TMD...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this cadaveric study was to measure the transfer accuracy of orthodontic mini-implant placement at the anterior palate depending on tooth-borne or gingiva-borne guide support. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty orthodontic mini-implants were placed paramedian in the anterior palate of 20 cadaver heads using tooth-borne (TBG) or gingiva-borne guides (GBG).

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to investigate the effect of fracture orientation on the detection accuracy of vertical root fractures (VRFs) in non-endodontically treated teeth using four different cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) units. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty eight out of 148 extracted human permanent teeth were chosen randomly, and VRFs were artificially induced to result in 20 mesiodistally and 18 buccolingually oriented root fractures. The fracture width was subsequently measured...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical behavior of the interface formed between bone and implants with machined surfaces (MS) and those modified by Al2 O3 sandblasting and acid etching (SBAS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Before surgery, topographic characterization was performed by SEM-EDX and by mean roughness measurements. Ten Albinus rabbits received randomly 20 Ti-6Al-4V implants on its right and left tibiae, with one implant placed in each tibia...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate light transmittance as a function of wavelength for eight composite materials and compare the transmittance for blue light produced from two curing units with different emission spectra. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Light transmittance through 2- and 4-mm-thick composite specimens was recorded in real time during 30 s of curing using a broad-spectrum (peaks at 405 and 450 nm) and a narrow-spectrum (peak at 441 nm) LED-curing unit. The spectral resolution of 0...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the association between oral mucosa hyperpigmentation in patients with leukemia and imatinib mesylate use. Additionally, we compared our data to those obtained from a systematic review. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted with 74 patients undergoing treatment with imatinib mesylate. Sociodemographic characteristics, oral mucosa alterations, and medical history were evaluated. Oral hyperpigmentation was scored. The use of imatinib mesylate and hydroxyurea was evaluated...

OBJECTIVES: The objective of the present study was to implement a chairside diabetes screening strategy for the identification of undiagnosed hyperglycaemia in periodontal patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Measurement of HbA1c was performed in patients (n = 139) diagnosed with periodontal disease to determine possible unknown hyperglycaemia. Patients fulfilled the criteria for screening according to the questionnaire by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)...

OBJECTIVE: To explore patient-related outcomes measures (PROMs) of piezocision-assisted orthodontic treatment compared to a conventional orthodontic treatment using customized appliance. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-four adult patients requiring orthodontic treatment for mild-to-moderate overcrowding in both jaws were randomly assigned to a test group, treated with a piezocision-assisted orthodontic treatment, or to a control group, where piezocision was not applied...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the critical bond strength (σ) of ceramic and metal brackets to a lithium disilicate-based glass-ceramic. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two hundred and forty ceramic specimens (IPS e-max CAD) were randomly distributed in 12 experimental groups (n = 20). Two ceramic brackets (monocrystalline, BCm; and polycrystalline, BCp) and a metal bracket (BM) were bonded to glass-ceramic specimens after one of the following surface treatments: HF-hydrofluoric acid applied for 60 s; S-silane applied for 3 min; HFS-HF followed by S; and MDP-application of an adhesive containing a phosphate monomer (MDP)...

OBJECTIVE: To identify the microbiome in sockets with alveolar osteitis and compare it with a control group using metagenomic techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A case-control study was conducted in subjects that had undergone a tooth extraction. Microbiological samples were taken from the sockets of 10 patients with dry socket after tooth extraction (AO group) and 10 patients in whom exodontia resulted in no postoperative complications (control group). Bacterial DNA was isolated, and the 16S rRNA gene was amplified and sequenced...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to revisit benign odontogenic ghost cell lesions (BOGCL) by hematoxylin and eosin staining and immunohistochemistry. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty cases of calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC) and 6 cases of dentinogenic ghost cell tumor (DGCT) were selected for histopathological and immunohistochemical analysis. Sections stained for cytokeratin (K) 14, K-19, amelogenin, collagen type 1 (COL-1), and dentin matrix acidic phosphoprotein 1 (DMP-1) were evaluated using qualitative analysis...

OBJECTIVES: Compression screws that can fix a fracture of the condylar head of the mandible are available. Although typical titanium lag screws are generally used, a series of headless screws have been designed for this purpose. The "headless" advantage derived from the complete submergence of the screw in the bone after fixation is the lack of irritation of the lateral ligament of the temporo-mandibular joint by the screw head. The aim of this study is to compare the compression force of typically used lag screws with that of newly developed headless compression screws...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present vitro study was to examine the question whether devitalized Enterococcus faecalis (E. faecalis) cells can migrate into dentinal tubules and if that process takes place in a time-dependent manner. DESIGN: Sixty bovine root canals were incubated with devitalized and vital streptomycin-resistant E. faecalis strains after root canal enlargement (size 80, taper .02) with 3% NaOCl solution. Incubation times 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, and 42 days...

OBJECTIVES: Studies on the perioperative management of patients on direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) receiving oral invasive procedures are sparse. Moreover, the recommendations of the scientific societies on DOACs are discordant, and the practices are highly variable. We conducted a survey of general and specialized dentists in France to compare their practices concerning the management of patients receiving vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) and DOACs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Members of two dental surgical societies were invited to participate in the survey...
