Impact of oral diseases and disorders on oral health-related quality of life of preschool children.
TLDR
The severity of ECC and a lower family income had a negative impact on the OHRQoL of preschool children and their parents. Expand
Clinical Performance of Two Visual Scoring Systems in Detecting and Assessing Activity Status of Occlusal Caries in Primary Teeth
TLDR
The Nyvad criteria and ICDAS-II criteria are comparable and present good reproducibility and validity to detect caries lesions and estimate their severities, but the LAA seems to overestimate the caries activity assessment of cavitated lesions compared to NY. Expand
Impact of traumatic dental injuries and malocclusions on quality of life of young children
TLDR
Complicated traumatic dental injuries have a negative impact on the OHRQoL of preschool children and their parents, but anterior malocclusion traits do not. Expand
Artificial methods of dentine caries induction: A hardness and morphological comparative study.
TLDR
The results indicated that chemical caries induction methods promote a superficial demineralization and that pH-cycling is more effective than acidified gel in producing dentine caries lesions. Expand
Performance of a Pen-Type Laser Fluorescence Device and Conventional Methods in Detecting Approximal Caries Lesions in Primary Teeth – in vivo Study
TLDR
Both LFpen and radiographic methods present similar performance in detecting the presence of cavitations on approximal surfaces of primary molars, according to the interexaminer reproducibility. Expand
In vitro Comparison of Nyvad’s System and ICDAS-II with Lesion Activity Assessment for Evaluation of Severity and Activity of Occlusal Caries Lesions in Primary Teeth
TLDR
There is no major difference between the Nyvad system and Lesion Activity Assessment in assessing caries activity and both visual systems are reliable and can estimate caries lesion depth on primary teeth. Expand
Effect of silver diammine fluoride on incipient caries lesions in erupting permanent first molars: a pilot study.
TLDR
All the tested techniques are equally efficient in controlling initial occlusal caries in erupting permanent first molars after 30-months of follow-up. Expand
Feasibility of the International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS-II) in Epidemiological Surveys and Comparability with Standard World Health Organization Criteria
TLDR
In conclusion, ICDAS-II, besides providing information on non-cavitated caries lesions, can generate data comparable to previous surveys which used WHO criteria. Expand
Performance of methods of occlusal caries detection in permanent teeth under clinical and laboratory conditions.
TLDR
Only slightly differences were observed between the examinations performed under clinical and laboratory conditions in the detection of occlusal caries lesions in permanent teeth. Expand
Socioeconomic inequalities in the distribution of dental caries in Brazilian preschool children.
TLDR
Socioeconomic factors are strong predictors for the inequality in caries distribution in Brazilian preschool children, including mothers having low level of education and from low household income. Expand
