Differential Diagnosis And Histopathological Analysis Of Localized Gingival Overgrowths: Study Of 218 Cases From Northeast Thailand, Lordjie Marr Morilla, Ajiravudh Subarnbhesaj, Poramaporn Klanrit

Journal of Dentistry Indonesia

Localized gingival overgrowths (LGOs) are relatively common clinical findings. These lesions can be associated with chronic irritation, infections, or they can represent benign or malignant tumors that can either be primary or metastatic. The etiology of these lesions is multifactorial, but the most prevalent cause is reactive hyperplasia and inflammation induced by dental plaque. Objective: This study presents the prevalence of LGOs in Northeast Thailand and identifies the most common LGOs in the region. Methods: A series of 218 LGO cases was studied. Results: Pyogenic granuloma (PG), gingival squamous cell carcinoma (GSCC), and peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) were the three ...

Implementation Of A Standardized Oral Screening Tool By Pediatric Cardiologists, Shelley McCargar 2020 University of Portland

Implementation Of A Standardized Oral Screening Tool By Pediatric Cardiologists, Shelley Mccargar

Nursing Graduate Publications and Presentations

Background: An examination of procedure cancellations found that the lack of preprocedural oral screening was a preventable cause, for children with congenital heart disease. The purpose of this study was to implement an oral screening tool within the pediatric cardiology clinic, with referral to pediatric dental providers for positive screens. The target population were children age ≥ 6 mo. to < 18 yr. old, being referred for cardiac procedures. Methods: The Quality Implementation Framework method was used for this study design. The multimodal intervention included education, audit and feedback, screening guidelines, environmental support, and interdisciplinary collaboration. Baseline rates for oral screenings were determined by retrospective chart audit from January 2018 to January 2019 (n=211). Adherence to the oral screening tool was the outcome measure. Positive oral screens, resulting in referral to the pediatric dental clinic, were measured as a secondary outcome. Provider compliance rates were used as a process measure. Results: Data collected over 14-weeks showed a 29% increase in documentation of oral screenings prior to referral, as compared to the retrospective chart audit. During the study period 13% of completed screenings were positive (n=5). Provider compliance for the period averaged 70%. Conclusion: A substantial increase in preprocedural oral screenings by pediatric cardiologists was achieved using the Quality Implementation Framework, and targeted interventions.

Dextran-Coated Iron Oxide Nanoparticles As Biomimetic Catalysts For Biofilm Disruption And Caries Prevention, Yuan Liu 2019 University of Pennsylvania

Dextran-Coated Iron Oxide Nanoparticles As Biomimetic Catalysts For Biofilm Disruption And Caries Prevention, Yuan Liu

Dental Theses

Biofilms are surface-attached bacterial communities embedded within an extracellular matrix that create localized and protected microenvironments. Acidogenic oral biofilms can demineralize the enamel-apatite on teeth, causing dental caries (tooth decay). Current antimicrobials have low efficacy and do not target the protective matrix and acidic pH within the biofilm. Recently, catalytic nanoparticles were shown to disrupt biofilms but lacked a stabilizing coating required for clinical applications. Here, we report dextran-coated iron oxide nanoparticles termed nanozymes (Dex-NZM) that display strong catalytic (peroxidase-like) activity at acidic pH values, target biofilms with high specificity, and prevent severe caries without impacting surrounding oral tissues in ...
