Does dental disease presence equate to treatment need among care home residents?
This study aimed to explore the relationship between dental disease, complexity and dental treatment needs of care home residents. Survey of residents in care homes in Wales. Random sample of participants from a random selection of care homes across Wales, UK. Data collection involved questionnaires...
Parental age as a risk factor for non-syndromic oral clefts: a meta-analysis.
A meta-analysis was conducted to assess the relationship between parental age and the occurrence of non-syndromic oral clefts. The questions addressed if younger or older mothers and fathers have an increased risk of having a child with non-syndromic oral clefts.
Effect of proanthocyanidin incorporation into dental adhesive resin on resin-dentine bond strength.
No significant difference in bond strength was found amongst PA-free, 1% and 2% PA adhesives. However, incorporation of 3% PA into the adhesive significantly lowered bond strength as demonstrated by a greater number of adhesive failures and more extensive nanoleakage along the bonded interface. CONC...
Effect of different crown contours on periodontal health in dogs. Clinical results.
Within the limits of this study it can be concluded that over-contoured subgingival crowns seem to affect clinical periodontal health only slightly in dogs over 5 months when an intensive oral hygiene regimen is executed....
Maximising the fracture resistance of dentine-bonded all-ceramic crowns.
Results of previous studies have indicated that the use of different ceramic materials and differing bonding/luting systems may affect resistance to fracture of teeth restored with dentine-bonded crowns. It is the purpose of this investigation to examine in vitro fracture resistance of dentine-bonde...
Comparison of the bond compatibility of titanium and an NiCr alloy to dental porcelain.
It was concluded that the bond compatibility between titanium and porcelain was comparable with the NiCr-porcelain system....
Long-term surface micro-hardness of resin-modified glass ionomers.
The post-hardening reaction overcame the plasticising effect of water when RMGICs were stored in distilled water. However, progressive and high water uptake of specimens stored in artificial saliva resulted in a decrease in their surface hardness....
The analysis of restoration survival data in split-mouth designs.
The dependency between restorations within a patient needs to be taken into account. Logistic regression with a random component may be a valuable alternative to very advanced statistical survival modelling when restricting the research question to replacement within a certain time interval is not a...
The electrical resistance of enamel-dentine cylinders. Influence of NaCl content in storage solutions.
The mean resistance values were 2026 +/- 152, 1835 +/- 178, 1605 +/- 364, 483 +/- 265 and 60 +/- 33 k omega, respectively. All values were statistically significantly different (Wilcoxon test; P < 0.0001). CONCLUSION: It is concluded that the choice of electrolyte solution influences the resistance...
Digitizing of radiographs with a flatbed scanner.
In order to obtain digitized radiographs of any reliability from flatbed scanners, these should be carefully calibrated at the operating conditions....
