Latino Children’s Oral Health Opinion Research & Model Program” at National Oral Health Conference in Kansas City

Latina Creative Agency, Washington Dental Service Foundation and Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic will Present “Latino Children’s Oral Health Opinion Research & Model Program” at National Oral Health Conference in Kansas City 

Kirkland, WA/April 22, 2015 - Recent large national survey conducted by the CDC revealed that 26 percent of Hispanic 6- to 9-year olds suffered from untreated tooth decay, compared with 14 percent of non-Hispanic white children of the same age, and revealed major gap in access to oral health care for Latino Children. Washington Dental Service Foundation engaged a northwest multicultural marketing firm and a research company to further understand how this affects Washington State Latino communities. Latina Creative Agency and Washington Dental Service Foundation will present findings and best practices at the 2015 National Oral Health Conference, the premiere meeting for dental public health, which takes place April 20-27, 2015 in Kansas City, MO. 

In 2014, Washington Dental Service Foundation, DHM Research and Latina Creative Agency designed and conducted English and Spanish-language focus groups around the Seattle-area and in Eastern Washington. The goal was to gain a better understanding of the knowledge, attitudes and behaviors regarding oral health among low- to moderate-income Latina mothers and teenagers. The main issues discovered include low dental utilization, social barriers, language, affordability of insurance, fear of deportation as well as fear of public assistance affecting residency. 

Latina Creative Agency Co-Founder and Principal, Cynarah Ellawala will join Senior Program Manager at Washington Dental Service Foundation, Laura Flores Cantrell JD, and Adam Thompson DDS from Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic on a panel discussion entitled “Latino Children’s Oral Health Opinion Research & Model Program.” The panel will highlight the best practices for Latino opinion research and focus group design based on recent focus groups conducted by Latina Creative Agency on behalf of Washington Dental Service Foundation. Cynarah Ellawala will discuss:

• Strategies to respectfully engage with the Latino community
• Recruiting strategies that build trust within the Latino communities 
• Elements of an interview guide
• Bilingual moderator techniques
• Research design considerations

Ellawala is a northwest multicultural marketing expert and was selected based on her experience soliciting input from the Latino community. She also has experience working on multicultural and diversity campaigns/projects for the University of Washington, The Clorox Company, and Microsoft.  

“As a multicultural marketing company we aim to help our clients understand this segment's needs, support research and design campaigns that respectfully communicates with this segment. With a growing number of Latinos both nationally and in Washington state there is an urgent need for organizations to understand how to effectively engage with this community. I am looking forward to presenting best practices for recruiting and moderating focus groups in Spanish that elicit meaningful input,” shares Cynarah Ellawala.

The National Oral Health Conference features a variety of educational sessions that will focus on issues and topics relevant to research, policy, programs and community-based care. The conference is targeted towards health professionals including dentists, dental hygienists, researchers, dental/health educators, students and public health officials to name a few. The conference has an expected participation of over 800 attendees and 30 exhibitors over the 5+ days of programming.

Taub Products Zero-G Bio Implant Cement Available in Single-Syringe Package

Jersey City, NJ: April 27, 2015, - TAUB Products, a long-time manufacturer of dental consumable products, is now making their ZERO-G dual-cure implant cement available in a single-syringe package. The single-syringe product will be introduced this week in the TAUB Products booth, #1287, at the CDA meeting in Anaheim.
The cement is recommended for intermediate to long-term cementation of implant-retained restorations and for traditional crown and bridge restorations. It can be cured with light in as little as twenty seconds, which allows for complete margin curing.
ZERO-G provides excellent radio-opacity for good visualization after cementation. This helps facilitate a simple and easy clean-up, and allows diagnostic examination upon follow-up. The new implant cement is retentive, which allows easy removal of the restoration and excess cement. Its unique color provides great contrast to gingival tissue, enhancing easy visualization.

Carestream Dental Equipment Installed in OHSU School of Dentistry’s New Home


ATLANTA — When students in Oregon Health & Science University’s School of Dentistry started the 2014-2015 school year in the new Collaborative Life Sciences Building and Skourtes Tower, they found brand new Carestream Dental equipment installed throughout the facility. Carestream Dental donated a CS 9300C system to the OHSU School of Dentistry, and the school purchased additional Carestream Dental equipment, including RVG 6100 sensors, two CS 9000C extraoral imaging systems and a CS 9000 extraoral imaging system.
“We are grateful for this generous equipment donation, and we will certainly make good use of the donated Carestream Dental cone beam system to further our educational and patient care missions,” Phillip T. Marucha, D.M.D, Ph.D., dean of the OHSU School of Dentistry, said.
Whether students are studying general dentistry, implantology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthognathics or orthodontics, the medium- to large-field 3-D imaging and seven selectable fields of view offered by the donated CS 9300C system supports a wide variety of clinical applications for students. The system offers 2-D digital panoramic imaging, one-shot cephalometric imaging, and 3-D imaging technology at a dose up to 85% lower than panoramic imaging*.
The purchased RVG 6100 sensors offer high-image resolution so students are better able to make accurate diagnoses. The sensors are designed to streamline workflow with easy image capture, analysis and sharing.
The CS 9000 and CS 9000C imaging systems capture top-quality panoramic X-ray images quickly and easily and feature low-dose radiation exposure to ensure patient safety. The CS 9000C also includes a cephalometric arm. The high-image resolution delivered by this equipment is designed to improve students’ pretreatment assessments and operative success.
“Our goal is always to provide equipment that will advance the education of students while preparing them for a career beyond university,” Ed Shellard, D.M.D., chief commercial officer, Carestream Dental, said. “Each piece of equipment plays a role in shaping the next generation of young dentists.”

What Causes Bad Breath?

An estimated 65 percent of Americans suffer from halitosis, or bad breath, according to the Washtenaw District Dental Society. But where does it come from? According to a TED-Ed video narrated by professor and bad breath researcher Mel Rosenberg, all comes down to the activity of bacteria in the mouth. "Bacteria in your mouth feed off of mucus, food remnants and dead tissue cells. In order to absorb nutrients through their cell membranes they must break down the organic matter into much smaller molecules," Rosenberg said.

Do Oral Health Conditions Adversely Impact Young Adults

Caries Res 2015;49:266-274
(DOI:10.1159/000375377)

Abstract

This study assessed the extent to which clinically measured oral health conditions, adjusted for sociodemographic and oral health behavior determinants, impact adversely on the oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) in a sample of Belgian young adults. The null hypothesis was that, among young adults, the oral health conditions would have no impact on their quality of life. The participants were 611 new patients aged 16-32 years seeking consultation at the Saint-Luc University Hospital in Brussels in 2010-2011. The patients (56.0% female) were examined for their oral health conditions and answered a validated questionnaire about sociodemographic and oral health behavior determinants in addition to questions about their OHRQoL. The abridged Oral Health Impact Profile-14 was used to assess the OHRQoL. Interexaminer reliability for caries was 0.86 (95% CI 0.84-0.89, nonweighted κ). The outcome was a high score on the OHRQoL (median split). Hierarchical logistic regression analysis showed that young adults with clinical absolute D1MFS scores between 9 and 16 (OR = 2.14, p = 0.031) and between 17 and 24 (OR = 3.10, p = 0.003) were significantly more likely to report a high impact on their quality of life than those with lower scores. Also, periodontal conditions compromised significantly (OR = 1.79, p = 0.011) the quality of life of young adults. In conclusion, this study identified oral health conditions with a significant adverse effect on the OHRQoL of young adults. However, the prevalence of young adults reporting impacts on at least 1 performance affected fairly often or very often was limited to 18.7% of the sample.

Effectiveness of and tooth sensitivity with at-home bleaching in smokers: A multicenter clinical trial.

See the practical implication at the bottom. MJ
J Am Dent Assoc. 2015 Apr;146(4):233-40. doi: 10.1016/j.adaj.2014.12.014.

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The authors conducted a 2-center controlled clinical study to show the equivalence of at-home bleaching in smokers and nonsmokers at 1 week and 1 month and evaluate tooth sensitivity (TS).

METHODS:

The authors selected 60 smokers and 60 nonsmokers with central incisors of shade A2 or darker. The participants performed bleaching with 10% carbamide peroxide for 3 hours daily for 3 weeks. The authors evaluated the color by using a shade guide and a spectrophotometer before, during, and after bleaching (1 week and 1 month). Patients recorded TS by using a 0-4 scale and a visual analog scale. The authors used multivariable regression analysis to test factors associated with color change and TS (α = .05).

RESULTS:

Smokers and nonsmokers showed significant color change statistically equivalent to within ± 2.0 units at 1 week after bleaching. Overall, color shade improved by 4.1 shade guide units (95% confidence interval [CI], 3.7-4.5) and 7.8 units of color change measured with the spectrophotometer (95% CI, 7.1-8.5) at 1 month. None of the factors affected the TS risk. TS absolute risk and intensity were similar between groups (P > .05), with an overall estimate of 47% (95% CI, 38-56%).

CONCLUSIONS:

The immediate effectiveness of whitening- and bleaching-related TS were not affected by smoking.

PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS:

Smoking did not affect the immediate color change (1 week). Effective whitening was achieved regardless of whether the patient was a smoker. However, this equivalence was not apparent 1 month after bleaching, with smokers having slightly darker teeth.

Accuracy Comparison of Implant Impression Techniques: A Systematic Review

Moreira, A. H. J., Rodrigues, N. F., Pinho, A. C. M., Fonseca, J. C. and Vilaça, J. L. (2015), Accuracy Comparison of Implant Impression Techniques: A Systematic Review. Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research. doi: 10.1111/cid.12310

Abstract

Background

Several studies link the seamless fit of implant-supported prosthesis with the accuracy of the dental impression technique obtained during acquisition. In addition, factors such as implant angulation and coping shape contribute to implant misfit.

Purpose

The aim of this study was to identify the most accurate impression technique and factors affecting the impression accuracy.

Material and Methods

A systematic review of peer-reviewed literature was conducted analyzing articles published between 2009 and 2013. The following search terms were used: implant impression, impression accuracy, and implant misfit. A total of 417 articles were identified; 32 were selected for review.

Results

All 32 selected studies refer to in vitro studies. Fourteen articles compare open and closed impression technique, 8 advocate the open technique, and 6 report similar results. Other 14 articles evaluate splinted and non-splinted techniques; all advocating the splinted technique. Polyether material usage was reported in nine; six studies tested vinyl polysiloxane and one study used irreversible hydrocolloid. Eight studies evaluated different copings designs. Intraoral optical devices were compared in four studies.

Conclusions

The most accurate results were achieved with two configurations: (1) the optical intraoral system with powder and (2) the open technique with splinted squared transfer copings, using polyether as impression material.

The effect of gum chewing on sensitivity associated with in-office whitening procedures

Int J Dent Hygiene DOI: 10.1111/idh.12136 Henry RK, Carkin M. The effect of gum chewing on sensitivity associated with in-office whitening procedures.

Abstract

Objectives

Tooth sensitivity is the most common side effect of in-office tooth-whitening procedures. The purpose of this study was to determine whether chewing gum containing 0.6% casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) before tooth whitening would reduce tooth sensitivity during an in-office whitening procedure.

Methods

Thirty participants were enrolled and randomized into three groups as follows: group 1 was instructed to not chew gum during the study period; group 2 chewed five pieces of gum (with 0.6% CPP-ACP) for 10 min each day 1 week before whitening; and group 3 chewed five pieces of gum (without CPP-ACP) for 10 min each day 1 week before whitening. All participants had their teeth whitened with a 30% hydrogen peroxide in-office whitening procedure. The participants' shades of teeth were evaluated with a spectrophotometer four times during the study: at the initial screening visit, immediately before whitening, immediately after whitening and 1 week after whitening. Participants' sensitivity levels were evaluated each time the shades were evaluated and additionally at 24 h after whitening using a 100-mm visual analogue scale.

Results

Thirty participants were enrolled in the study. The average shade change was −2.27 (±2.07). The average sensitivity for all groups at visit 1 was 5.12 (±13.94). The average sensitivity for all groups after whitening was 19.81 (±13.95). There were significant differences in sensitivity between groups 2 and 3 (= 0.02), but neither group was significantly different from the control group (= 0.86, = 0.07).

Conclusions

Chewing gum before whitening, including gum with CPP-ACP, did not reduce sensitivity during in-office whitening procedures.

Carestream Dental Recognizes Core3dcentres® NA as Complete Solutions Partner



ATLANTA—Carestream Dental and Core3dcentres® are pleased to announce that Core3dcentres has been recognized as a Complete Solutions Partner for Carestream Dental in North America.

Core3dcentres has undergone a rigorous training process to help CS Connect — a hosted web-based platform that enables the transmission of digital impression data — dental laboratories take maximum advantage of Carestream Dental’s game-changing computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) solutions, making their workflow intuitive and efficient, while building their business.

First, practitioners use either one of several Carestream Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) units or the CS 3500 intraoral scanner to create digital impressions. With a CBCT unit, conventional impressions are scanned to create 3D models, or, the intraoral scanner can be used to capture true color, high-resolution 3D digital images of patients’ teeth.

Once the STL files have been submitted to a lab, two different workflows are possible depending on the laboratory’s digital capabilities, both based on the original scans taken by the practitioner with Carestream Dental scanning solutions. If the lab prefers to do its own case design, Core3dcentres can assist with fast model printing, eliminating the need for expensive in-lab model printing capabilities. In workflow option 2, Core3dcentres can also design the case for the laboratory and then print and return the models. The laboratory can choose to mill the case themselves or have Core3dcentres do it for them with either workflow option.

Both Carestream Dental and Core3dcentres are very excited by this partnership as it opens up new opportunities for the dental industry and reinforces both companies’ commitment to using the best technologies, materials and processes available in the market today.
