Risks and benefits of omega 3 fats for mortality, cardiovascular disease, and cancer: systematic review
TLDR
Long chain and shorter chain omega 3 fats do not have a clear effect on total mortality, combined cardiovascular events, or cancer. Expand
Fluoride toothpastes of different concentrations for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents.
TLDR
The benefits of using fluoride toothpaste in preventing caries in children and adolescents when compared to placebo are confirmed, but only significantly for fluoride concentrations of 1000 ppm and above. Expand
Sealants for preventing dental decay in the permanent teeth.
TLDR
Compared to control without sealant, second or third or fourth generation resin-based sealants prevented caries in first permanent molars in children aged 5 to 10 years in children and adolescents under 20 years of age. Expand
Oral hygiene care for critically ill patients to prevent ventilator-associated pneumonia.
TLDR
High quality evidence from 18 RCTs shows that CHX mouthrinse or gel, as part of OHC, reduces the risk of VAP compared to placebo or usual care, which is equivalent to a number needed to treat for an additional beneficial outcome (NNTB) of 17, which indicates that for every 17 ventilated patients in intensive care receiving OHC including chlorhexidine, one outcome of V AP would be prevented.

Interventions for replacing missing teeth: different times for loading dental implants.
TLDR
It is possible to successfully load dental implants immediately or early after their placement in selected patients, though not all clinicians may achieve optimal results when loading the implant immediately. Expand
Radiomorphometric indices of the mandible in a British female population.
TLDR
The age-related changes in mandibular radiomorphometric indices and their variation within each age band lend support to their potential use in identification of skeletal osteopenia, however, problems with repeatability and measurement precision identified in the pilot study, notably with GI, may be a considerable obstacle to their use in general practice.

Perceived aesthetic impact of malocclusion and oral self-perceptions in 14-15-year-old Asian and Caucasian children in greater Manchester.
TLDR
Children with higher clinical need for orthodontic treatment perceived themselves as worse off than their peers with lower need, but a better aesthetic appearance than Caucasians and males. Expand
Fluoride varnishes for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents.
TLDR
The main outcome was caries increment measured by the change in decayed, missing and filled tooth surfaces in both permanent (D(M)FS) and primary (d(e/m)fs) teeth. Expand
Pit and fissure sealants for preventing dental decay in the permanent teeth of children and adolescents.
TLDR
Sealing is a recommended procedure to prevent caries of the occlusal surfaces of permanent molars and information on the benefits of sealing specific to different caries risks is lacking. Expand
The efficacy of various bone augmentation procedures for dental implants: a Cochrane systematic review of randomized controlled clinical trials.
TLDR
An exhaustive search was conducted for all randomized controlled clinical trials comparing different techniques and materials for augmenting bone for implant treatment reporting the outcome of implant therapy at least to abutment connection, finding no reliable evidence supporting the efficacy of other active agents in conjunction with implant treatment.
