The effect of dentists' body-weight size on student social judgments of dental skill and patients' behavioural intentions: a vignette study.
Where previous work has suggested that over-weight individuals may be subject to negative social judgments, a finding also seen in judgments applied to healthcare professionals (HCPs), this study investigated whether these findings extend to judgments made about dental practitioners. A photo of a no...
A 4-year prospective study of the progression of periodontal disease in a rural Chinese population.
We investigated the progression of periodontal disease over 4 years in 15-44-year-old Chinese villagers with no access to regular dental care. In 1992, 486 villagers were enrolled, and in 1996, 413 villagers were re-examined. Probing depth (PD) and clinical attachment level (CAL) were examined at si...
Treatment of caries in relation to lesion severity: implications for minimum intervention dentistry.
To date there is little evidence of minimum intervention in relation to treatment patterns, particularly for initial carious lesions. The objective of this study was to investigate treatment provided to patients with a main diagnosis of coronal caries in relation to the severity of the caries lesion...
Effects of using different criteria for caries removal: a systematic review and network meta-analysis.
We aimed at systematically comparing the effects of using different excavation criteria via network meta-analysis. Electronic databases were searched for randomised or non-randomised clinical trials (RCTs/NRCTs) evaluating excavation of cavitated lesions. Criteria were divided into six groups: Excav...
Effects of different sonic activation protocols on debridement efficacy in teeth with single-rooted canals.
The effects of different EndoActivator® (EA) sonic activation protocols on root canal debridement efficacy were examined. Root canals in 48 single-rooted teeth were instrumented, irrigated initially with NaOCl and divided into 6 groups (N=8) based on the application time of QMix (antimicrobial calci...
Effect of bulk/incremental fill on internal gap formation of bulk-fill composites.
I preparations. Cylindrical, Class I, 4-mm×4-mm preparations were made on 50 recently extracted human molars and restored using either a bulk-fill (SureFil SDR Flow (SDR), Quixx (QX), SonicFill (SF), Tetric EvoCeram Bulk (TEC)) or a conventional composite designed for 2-mm increments (Filtek Supreme...
Reproducibility of habitual intercuspation in vivo.
The aim of this in vivo study was to investigate how reproducible individuals find their habitual intercuspation. A new type of highly accurate measuring procedure was involved using an intraoral optical scanning device (Cerec Bluecam). First, a pilot test investigated the accuracy of the procedure...
Reusing electronic patient data for dental clinical research: a review of current status.
We included studies reusing electronic patient data for research on dental and craniofacial topics, alone or in combination with medical conditions, medications and outcomes. Studies using administrative or research databases and systematic reviews were excluded. Three reviewers extracted data indep...
In vivo spectrophotometric evaluation of pure enamel and enamel-dentine complex in relationship with different age groups.
The aim of this in vivo study was to investigate the influence of age on optical properties of pure enamel and enamel-dentine complex. A spectrophotometric study was performed on two different age groups: young (10-35 years old) and adult (36-60 years old). In both groups, the tooth's total area of...
Occlusal designs on masticatory ability and patient satisfaction with complete denture: a systematic review.
To systematically review clinical outcomes of different occlusal designs of complete dentures. Using a various key words, an electronic search of clinical trials published in English and Chinese literature was performed from four databases: Medline/PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, and CBM.
