Black stain and dental caries in schoolchildren in Potenza, Italy.
TLDR
An association between black stain and a decreased caries experience at least in the permanent dentition is suggested and further studies are necessary to examine the etiology and whether or not black stain can protect against caries. Expand
Mineral trioxide aggregate or calcium hydroxide direct pulp capping: an analysis of the clinical treatment outcome.
TLDR
MTA appears to be more effective than calcium hydroxide for maintaining long-term pulp vitality after direct pulp capping, and should always be aimed for. Expand
Electronic determination of root canal length in primary teeth with and without root resorption.
TLDR
The presence of resorption in primary teeth did not affect the accuracy of electrical measurement of root canal length in vitro, and the application of this method inPrimary teeth should be evaluated further. Expand
Treatment outcome of mineral trioxide aggregate: repair of root perforations.
TLDR
MTA appears to provide a biocompatible and long-term effective seal for root perforations in all parts of the root, and none of the analyzed potential prognostic factors had a significant effect on the outcome. Expand
Mineral trioxide aggregate apical plugs in teeth with open apical foramina: a retrospective analysis of treatment outcome.
TLDR
The results supported the management of open apical foramina with mineral trioxide aggregate apical plugs by supervised undergraduate students and calibrated examiners. Expand
Dental health, received care, and treatment needs in 11- to 13-year-old children with immigrant background in Heidelberg, Germany.
TLDR
Children with immigration background demonstrated more caries and received less dental care when compared to children without migration experience, and the community prevention programmes could not close the gap in oral health between immigrant and non-immigrant children. Expand
Caries prevalence in 11- to 14-year old migrant children in Germany
TLDR
In Germany, migrant children have a poorer dental health status than native children coming from the same low socio-economic classes and risk-oriented public health policies with appropriate prevention programs must be developed for these children. Expand
Fluoride supplements (tablets, drops, lozenges or chewing gums) for preventing dental caries in children.
TLDR
This review suggests that the use of fluoride supplements is associated with a reduction in caries increment when compared with no fluoride supplement in permanent teeth, and 10 trials provide weak evidence about the efficacy of fluoride supplement. Expand
The clinical performance of laboratory-fabricated crowns placed on first permanent molars with developmental defects.
TLDR
Cast gold, composite or ceramic crowns can be used successfully to treat developmental defects of first permanent molars in children and were well- accepted by the patients and their parents. Expand
Clinical evaluation of Helioseal F fissure sealant
TLDR
After 1 year of clinical testing, these results indicate that a sealant containing fluoride-releasing particles did not show a significant difference in retention rate compared to an unfilled conventional sealant, however, long-term results concerning marginal adaptation should be evaluated. Expand
