- Radiographic changes of trabecular bone density after loading of implant-supported complete dentures: A 3-year prospective study. [Journal Article]Clin Implant Dent Relat Res 2019CI
- CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest an increase of radiographic bone density as measured by an increase in mean gray levels and a decrease in CV in IFCD distal implants up to 3 years of loading.
- Prostheses satisfaction and diet of elderly wearing a single implant overdenture: A six-month assessment. [Journal Article]Spec Care Dentist 2019SC
- CONCLUSIONS: SIO wearers are more satisfied with their prosthesis and consume greater amounts of vitamin B2 and vitamin B6 in their diets than CD wearers. Brazilian Registry of Clinical Trials (#RBR-3kgttj and #RBR-37gdst).
- In vivo effectiveness and safety of probiotics on prophylaxis and treatment of oral candidiasis: a systematic review and meta-analysis. [Journal Article]BMC Oral Health 2019; 19(1):140BO
- CONCLUSIONS: Probiotics were superior to the placebo and blank control in preventing and treating oral candidiasis in the elderly and denture wearers. Although probiotics showed a favorable effect in treating oral candidiasis, more evidence is required to warrant their effectiveness when compared with conventional antifungal treatments. Moreover, data on the safety of probiotics are still insufficient, and further research is needed.
- [Three-dimensional finite element analysis of cantilever fixed bridge supported by implants with mandibular central incisor]. [Journal Article]Zhonghua Kou Qiang Yi Xue Za Zhi 2019; 54(7):463-468ZK
- CONCLUSIONS: The trapezoidal contact surface of the bridge and the adjacent teeth in the cantilever fixed bridge supported by implants with mandibular central incisor is beneficial to reduce the impact of the leverage on the implant and surrounding bone tissue.
- Oral Candida colonization in xerostomic postradiotherapy head and neck cancer patients. [Journal Article]Oral Dis 2019OD
- CONCLUSIONS: NACS colonization was common in xerostomic head and neck cancer patients. Increased signs of dry mouth, female and dental prostheses may promote NACS colonization.
- Comparison of nonscheduled, postinsertion adjustment visits for complete dentures fabricated with conventional and CAD-CAM protocols: A clinical study. [Journal Article]J Prosthet Dent 2019JP
- CONCLUSIONS: Based on the results of this study, there were no significant differences in the number of unscheduled, postinsertion visits for participants whose dentures were fabricated following IM or CAD-CAM milling protocols. Clinicians may choose to fabricate complete dentures with either protocol and expect similar clinical results in terms of the number of unscheduled postinsertion visits.
- The residual dentition among New Zealanders in aged residential care. [Journal Article]Gerodontology 2019G
- CONCLUSIONS: Having various degrees of tooth loss was the norm, with the upper tooth-bounded saddles against any partially dentate lower combination most common, and limited to females. An edentulous maxilla opposed by some standing teeth was observed in over one-quarter of the population, and most common among Māori and those who were older. Maxillary prostheses were much more common than mandibular ones. Caring for dentate older people in aged residential care is likely to be complicated by the wide range of dentition configurations.
- Consistency of supplied food and dentition status of the elderly in residential care homes. [Journal Article]BMC Oral Health 2019; 19(1):74BO
- CONCLUSIONS: The number of tooth contact pairs, either natural or artificial, was one of the contributing factors for deciding supplied food consistency among elderly residents of care facilities. Elderly residents requiring less than care level 3 should have ordinary meals.

Periodontitis is one of the most prevalent oral diseases worldwide and is caused by multifactorial interactions between host and oral bacteria. Altered cellular metabolism of host and microbes releases a number of intermediary end products known as metabolites. There is an increasing interest in identifying metabolites from oral fluids such as saliva to widen the understanding of the complex pathogenesis of periodontitis. It is believed that some metabolites might serve as indicators toward early detection and screening of periodontitis and perhaps even for monitoring its prognosis in the future. Because contemporary periodontal screening methods are deficient, there is an urgent need for novel approaches in periodontal screening procedures. To this end, we associated oral parameters (clinical attachment level, periodontal probing depth, supragingival plaque, supragingival calculus, number of missing teeth, and removable denture) with a large set of salivary metabolites (n = 284) obtained by mass spectrometry among a subsample (n = 909) of nondiabetic participants from the Study of Health in Pomerania (SHIP-Trend-0). Linear regression analyses were performed in age-stratified groups and adjusted for potential confounders. A multifaceted image of associated metabolites (n = 107) was revealed with considerable differences according to age groups. In the young (20 to 39 y) and middle-aged (40 to 59 y) groups, metabolites were predominantly associated with periodontal variables, whereas among the older subjects (≥60 y), tooth loss was strongly associated with metabolite levels. Metabolites associated with periodontal variables were clearly linked to tissue destruction, host defense mechanisms, and bacterial metabolism. Across all age groups, the bacterial metabolite phenylacetate was significantly associated with periodontal variables. Our results revealed alterations of the salivary metabolome in association with age and oral health status. Among our comprehensive panel of metabolites, periodontitis was significantly associated with the bacterial metabolite phenylacetate, a promising substance for further biomarker research.
