OBJECTIVE The knowledge, attitude, practice (KAP) studies play an important role in promotion of oral health. The aim of this study was to assess oral health KAP in 12-year-old schoolchildren in Iran. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a cross-sectional study on 1554 students aged 12 years from the rural and urban areas of five provinces, KAP of subjects was(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Change in the resting whole-mouth salivary flow rate (SFR) plays a significant role in patho-genesis of various oral conditions. Factors such as smoking may affect SFR as well as the oral and dental health. The primary purpose of this study was to determine the effect of smoking on SFR, and oral and dental health. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
Feature selection is one of the most important techniques for data preprocessing in classification problems. In this paper, fuzzy grids–based association rules mining, as an effective data mining technique, is used for feature selection in misuse detection application in computer networks. The main idea of this algorithm is to find the relationships between(More)
INTRODUCTION This study aimed to compare the thickness of the mesiobuccal furcal canal walls of first and second maxillary molars. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was performed on total of 30 first and second extracted molar teeth (15 each). The mesiobuccal roots of each tooth were separated at the cement-enamel junction (CEJ) level and embedded in(More)
Intrusion Detection System (IDS) deals with a very large amount of data that includes redundant and irrelevant features. Therefore, feature selection is a necessary data pre-processing step to design IDSs that are lightweight. In this paper, a novel feature selection method based on data mining techniques is proposed, which uses fuzzy association rules to(More)
INTRODUCTION This study was carried out to estimate toothache prevalence among adult residents in Kerman. MATERIALS AND METHODS This cross-sectional, population-based study was conducted among individuals aged over 18 years (n=1800). The relevant data on the prevalence of toothache and associated factors were collected by interviewing the individuals in(More)
which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Abstract In this work, a special rhombus-like structure of CdO composed of particles at the nanometre scale was successfully synthesized for the first time. A facile hydrothermal process with a post-reaction calcination was employed to(More)
— Using the fuzzy logic for sampling may be a suitable method for data preprocessing and it improves the efficiency of intrusion detection system. This paper has shown how to use a method based on fuzzy clustering, the training samples will be clustered and separated the inappropriate data from the clusters. Accordingly, the remaining samples are supposed(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this article was to evaluate the quality of sample size calculation reports in published clinical trials in Journal of Endodontics and International Endodontic Journal in years 2000-1 and 2009-10. MATERIALS AND METHODS Articles fulfilling the inclusion criteria were collected. The criteria were: publication year, research(More)
