ABSTRACT

Introdução: Por muitos anos a saúde bucal esteve à margem das políticas públicas de saúde no Brasil. Em 2004, com a criação da Política Nacional de Saúde Bucal, houve uma proposta de reorganização do cuidado em todos os níveis de atenção no âmbito do Sistema Único de Saúde. Quando avalia-se a qualidade da atenção em populações específicas, a análise dos indicadores torna-se cada vez mais escassa, o que impacta diretamente no financiamento das equipes da atenção básica, já que com a ascensão do novo modelo de financiamento, o Previne Brasil (Portaria n° 2.979/2019), alteram-se algumas formas de repasse para os municípios. Objetivo:Investigar o cuidado odontológico durante a gravidez sob a ótica dos resultados do Previne Brasil, com recorte temporal dos três últimos quadrimestres do ano de 2020, no município de Belém, no Pará. Metodologia:Estudo de natureza descritiva baseado nos dados disponíveis para domínio público provenientes do Sistema de Informação da Atenção Básica. Estes dados foram tabulados no software Microsoft Excel®. A análise dos dados se deu com base no referencial teórico disponível na Scientific Electronic Library Onlinee de documentos oficiais do Ministério da Saúde. Resultados:Belém possui 23,94% de cobertura de saúde bucal, com uma população que ultrapassou um milhão de habitantes. Quando se analisa a proporção de gestantes com atendimento odontológico realizado, Belém apresentou 4%, 3% e 5% respectivamente, em cada quadrimestre de 2020. Conclusões:Os dados revelam que para alcançar um nível satisfatório no acesso e oferta de serviços odontológicos no município amazônico, deve haver um fortalecimento e expansão das políticas públicas de saúde bucal, não excluindo a atenção às linhas de cuidado presentes na Política Nacional de Saúde Bucal, como as gestantes (AU).


Introduction:For several years, oral health had been on the fringe of public policies in Brazil. In 2004, with the establishment of the National Policy for Oral Health, there had been a proposal for reorganization of care in every assistance level in the scope of the Brazilian National Health System. When the quality of assistance to specific populations is availed, the analysis of the indexes becomes increasingly scarce, what directly affects the funding of primary care teams, as with the ascension of the new model of funding, the Previne Brasil (Directive nº 2.979/2019), some forms of transfer to municipalities are changed.Objective:Investigate the dental care during pregnancy under the perspective of the results of Previne Brasil, using the time frame of the three latter four-month periods of 2020, in the city of Belém, in Pará. Methodology: Descriptive study based on the data available for public domain from the Basic Care Information System. These data were tabulated on the Microsoft Excel® software. The data analysis had been done based on the theoretical framework available at the Scientific Electronic Library Online and on official documents from the Ministry of Health. Results: Belém has 23,94% of oral health coverage, with a population that has surpassed 1 million inhabitants. When the proportion of pregnant women with dental assistance is analyzed, Belém presented 4%, 3%, and 5% respectively, in each four-month period of 2020. Conclusions:The data revealed that to reach a satisfactory level of access and supply of dental health services in the Amazonian city, there must be strengthening and expansion of oral health public policies, without excluding the attention to the care lines contained on the National Policy for Oral Health, such as the pregnant women (AU).

ABSTRACT

Introdução:Em contexto pandêmico do COVID-19, a teleodontologia pode desempenhar um papel fundamental no cuidado de problemas de saúde bucal principalmente na identificação precoce com critérios de prioridades em casos de urgência e emergência. Através dela é possível diagnosticar e prestar atendimento às pessoas infectadas pelo SARS-CoV-2 sem colocar em risco de infecção a equipe de profissionais que prestarão os serviços.Objetivo:Analisar experiências internacionais do uso da teleodontologia no contexto da pandemia de COVID-19 e sua aplicabilidade na Atenção Primária à Saúde, destacando possíveis dificuldades de sua implementação, bem como suas potencialidades e limitações.Metodologia:Uma revisão integrativa foi conduzida mediante as seis fases preconizadas do processo de elaboração. As buscas foram realizadas nas bases de dados PubMed, Lilacs, Bireme, SciELO, Paho, Cochrane e Wholis no período de 14 a 20 de julho de 2020. Foram selecionados artigos que abordassem experiências internacionais, no âmbito público ou privado, do uso da teleodontologia nos protocolos de atendimento odontológico.Resultados:Seis estudos foram analisados. A revisão dos artigos destacou a importância da teleodontologia como ferramenta de saúde alternativa para antecipar diagnósticos e diminuir necessidades em saúde bucal, além de contribuir para controle de disseminação viral no contexto da pandemia do COVID-19.Conclusões:Ainda se impõe como um desafio a aplicação da teleodontologia durante a pandemia de COVID-19 na Atenção Primária à Saúde, devido aos limites estruturais e financeiros que o Sistema Único de Saúde apresenta. No entanto, a partir desta revisão integrativa e de experiências internacionais aqui estudadas, observou-se que há viabilidade de implementação da teleodontologia nas Unidades Básicas de Saúde do país (AU).


Introduction:In the COVID-19 pandemic context, teledentistry can play a fundamental role in oral health treatment, especially in early identification and priority determination of urgent and emergency cases. Through it, it is possible to diagnose and provide care to people infected with SARS-CoV-2 without putting the team of professionals who will provide the services at risk of infection.Objective:To analyze international experiences in the use of teledentistry in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and its applicability in Primary Health Care, highlighting possible difficulties in its implementation, as well as its potential and limitations.Methodology:An integrative review was conducted through the six recommended phases of the elaboration process. Searches were performed in the PubMed, Lilacs, Bireme, SciELO, Paho, Cochrane and Wholis databases, from July 14 to 20, 2020. Articles that addressed international experiences, in the public or private sphere,of the use of teledentistry in dental care protocols were selected.Results:Six studies were analyzed. The review of the articles highlighted the importance of teledentistry as an alternative health tool to anticipate diagnoses and reduce needs in oral health, in addition to contributing to the control of viral spread in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.Conclusions:The application of teledentistry during the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazilian Primary Health Care is still a challenge, due to the structural and financial limits that its Unified Health System presents. However, from this integrative review and international experiences studied here, we observe that there is feasibility of implementing teledentistry in Brazilian Basic Health Units (AU).

ABSTRACT

Introdução:A escola é um ambiente propício para o desenvolvimento de hábitos que podem ser aplicadospor toda a vida. Nessa perspectiva, as atividades educativas com escolares podem contribuir significativamente na promoção de saúde bucal e na disseminação de bons hábitos de higiene oral, sendo alternativas capazes de instruir esses sujeitos eficientemente.Objetivo:Relatar a experiência de uma intervenção lúdica de caráter educativo realizada pela equipe de um projeto de extensão com uma turma de educação infantil em escola institucional de educação básica.Metodologia:A partir do conhecimento da faixa etária dos escolares, um jogo educativo foi desenvolvido e uma ação de caráter lúdico foi elaborada. A alimentação saudável foi a temática escolhida para ser trabalhada interdisciplinariamente à conscientização sobre o papel dos alimentos no desenvolvimento da cárie dentária e das orientações de higiene oral. Ao "brincar de fazer compras", momento em que os alunos podiam escolher quais alimentos adquirir no jogo, foi possível discorrer sobre quais dessas escolhas alimentares não eram saudáveis e também orientar os participantescom macromodelosobre a forma correta de escovação e uso dofio dental.Resultados:A interação das crianças com a atividade e com toda equipe de extensionistas foi bastante satisfatória. Foi possível verificar que os mesmos assimilaram bem os assuntos trabalhados ludicamente e foi demonstrado pela intervenção que os alunos conseguiram adquirir conhecimentos práticos sobre a saúde bucal no momento de orientação de higiene oral tanto no jogo quanto na simulação da escovação com macromodelo. Conclusões:Atividades lúdicas para escolares podem ser instrumentos capazes de transmitir conhecimentos em saúde bucal satisfatoriamente ao passo que sinalizam aspectos que devem ser desenvolvidos e incorporados no cotidiano dos indivíduos desde a mais tenra idade (AU).


Introduction: School is a conducive environment for developing habits that can be extended throughout life. From this perspective, educational activities with schoolchildren can significantly contribute to promoting oral health and to disseminate good oral hygiene habits, constituting alternatives which are capable of efficiently educating these subjects. Objective:To report the experience of a playful and educational intervention carried out by the team of an extension project with an early childhood education class in an institutional school of basic education. Methodology: An educational game was developed based on the knowledge of the age range of the school children, and a playful action was elaborated. A healthy eating theme was chosen to be worked on in an interdisciplinary way to raise awareness about the role of food in developing dental caries and oral hygiene guidelines. By "playing shopping" in which students could choose which foods to buy in a game, it was possible to discuss which of these food choices were unhealthy and also guide participants with a macromodel on the correct way of brushing and flossing. Results: The interaction of children with the activity and with the entire extension team was quite satisfactory. It was possible to verify that they had assimilated the playfully addressed issues and it was demonstrated that students were able to acquire practical knowledge about oral health during the oral hygiene orientation in both the game and in the brushing simulation with the macromodel. Conclusions:Playful activities for schoolchildren may constitute instruments which are capable of satisfactorily transmitting knowledge on oral health, and can indicate aspects which must be developed and incorporated into the daily lives of individuals from a very early age (AU).


Introducción: La escuela es un entorno favorable para el desarrollo de hábitos que pueden prolongarse a lo largo de la vida. En esta perspectiva, las actividades educativas con alumnos pueden contribuir significativamente a la promoción de salud oral y de difusión de buenas costumbres de higiene oral, siendo estas alternativas capaces de educar estos sujetos eficientemente.Objetivo:Relatar la experiencia de una intervención lúdica educativo, realizada por un equipo de un proyecto de extensión, direccionada a un grupo de educación infantil en una escuela del sistema educativo básico brasileño. Metodología: A partir del conocimiento de la franja etaria , se diseñó un juego educativo y se planeó una acción de carácter lúdico. La alimentación sana fue la temática elegida para que, de este modo, además de orientaciones de cuidados orales, también se trabajara, interdisciplinariamente, la concientización sobre la relación entre los alimentos y el surgimiento de caries dentarias. Al "jugar a las compras", momento en que los alumnos podían elegir cuales alimentos iban a adquirir, fue posible debatir sobre cuales de las opciones alimentares no eran sanas y, además de eso, orientar los participantes, con un tipodonto, sobre la forma correcta de cepillarse y de usar el hilo dental. Resultados: La interacción con la actividad y con el equipo de extensión fue muy exitosa. Fue posible verificar que los alumnos comprendieron los temas trabajados lúdicamente y también que, a través de la intervención, consiguieron alcanzar conocimientos prácticos sobre salud oral, tanto en el momento de la orientación de higiene oral cuanto en la actividad de simulación de cepillado con el apoyo del tipodonto.Conclusiones:Actividades lúdicas para niños r pueden ser instrumentos capaces de proporcionar aprendizajes sobre salud oral en la medida en que señalan aspectos que necesitan ser desarrollados en las prácticas rutineras de sujetos desde muy temprana edad (AU).

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective To describe and evaluate the xylitol products' applicability and its effects in the health area worldwide utilizing a bibliometric analysis from randomized controlled trials (RCT) with humans. Material and Methods Electronic searches were carried out in Medline/PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, and VHL databases. The main data extracted were: year, area of applicability, type of treatment, country, journal, xylitol posology and concentration, presentation form, outcomes, and effects. Results From 1476 studies, 257 were included. These studies were published between 1973-2021. The majority was carried out in dentistry (73.9%) and under preventive treatment (67.4%). These studies were developed in the USA (15.4%) and published in Caries Research (6.6%). The posology and concentration ranged between 0.004-67 g/day and 0.002-100%, respectively. The xylitol is usually used in the chewing gum form (44.0%), and for antimicrobial activity evaluation (38.5%). A positive effect was observed in 204 studies (79.3%) and was associated with xylitol concentration ≥ 15(p=0.007). Side effects were reported in 8.2and were associated with posology ≥ 5 g/day (p=0.03). Conclusion Most studies with xylitol were conducted to prevent diseases in the dentistry field. The chewing gum form and antimicrobial activity evaluation were more frequent. Most xylitol products have a positive effect, and few studies report side effects.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective: To verify the association between impacts produced by tooth loss and sociodemographic variables in the oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) in the elderly. Material and Methods: This is an analytical cross-sectional study carried out in the municipality of Vitória/ES, Brazil, which sample was composed of 402 older adults. The Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP-14) was used to measure the individuals' OHRQoL. For data analysis, descriptive and bivariate analyses were performed using the Fisher's exact test and the Mantel-Haenzsel test to assess the effects of combined dimensions. The significance level adopted was 5%. To assess the strength of association between independent variables and dimensions, Odds-Ratio (OR) with 95% confidence interval (CI) was calculated. Results: The prevalence of negative impact on OHRQoL in the elderly was 32.6%. The greatest impact perception was found in individuals with up to 10 years of schooling (p=0.021 and OR=1.602), with need for removable partial dentures (p=0.000 and OR=2.873) and those who did not accept the loss of dental elements (p=0.000 and OR=3.064). Conclusion: Older female adults with socioeconomic class C/D-E, with up to 10 years of schooling, who lost 11 or more teeth, who declared the need for removable partial dentures, suffered greater impacts caused by tooth loss on OHRQoL.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective To determine the relationship between dental anxiety and self-reported periodontal status. Material and Methods The study was conducted among 263 patients at the Family Medicine Clinic of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria. Self-assessed gingival and periodontal disease was measured using the validated periodontal disease self-report surveillance questionnaire. The Modified Dental Anxiety Scale (MDAS) was used for evaluating dental anxiety. Student's t-test was used to test for association between categorical variables. P-value < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. Results Seventy-seven (29.3%) participants had high dental anxiety, while 49 (18.6%) had very high dental anxiety. The prevalence of periodontal disease was higher among those with very high dental anxiety (77.6%), while female respondents had a significantly higher proportion of self-reported periodontitis (34.1%). There was a significantly higher prevalence of very high dental anxiety among respondents who had never visited the dentist (23.2%). Similarly, females (19.4%), middle-class respondents (30.8%), and those with a primary level of school education (23.5%) had a higher prevalence of high dental anxiety, even though the association was not significant. Conclusion The prevalence of self-reported periodontal disease among the respondents with very high dental anxiety was higher than in those with high dental anxiety and those without dental anxiety, but the difference was not significant.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective: To assess the knowledge of pregnant women regarding their child's oral health. Material and Methods: A questionnaire was developed and the 1st section comprised sociodemographic variables. The second section contained questions about the eruption of teeth, fluoride importance, cariogenic food, and dental visits. The questionnaire was shared electronically via a link to the receptionist of the gynaecologist at different health centres of Najran to be filled by expectant mothers. The convenient sampling method was used to collect the responses. Data were presented using descriptive statistics. Results: A total of 572 pregnant women participated in this survey. Three hundred and fifteen (55.1%) knew that 1st primary tooth erupts at the age of 6 months. The majority of the respondents (n=332) agreed that toothbrushes and toothpaste could be used to clean a child's teeth; only 5.4%, 10%, and 24.5% preferred miswak, mouthwash, and toothbrush, respectively. Participants were well familiar with cariogenic food and occasionally allowed their children to take it. They have enough knowledge about fluoride toothpaste, but they were not familiar with the benefits of fluoride varnish. Almost 50% of the respondents agreed that the child should visit the dentist within six months, and 27.4% said they should visit the dentist whenever there is a problem. Conclusion: Almost 50% of participants showed a positive attitude towards most questions. However, there is a need to improve their behaviour and knowledge about many aspects of dental care.

ABSTRACT

Trata-se de um relato de experiência, que descreve, sob estratégia narrativo-argumentativa, as significâncias político-pedagógicas atreladas ao planejamento estratégico de ações de educação em saúde bucal vivenciadas em um ambiente escolar e experimentadas por acadêmicos estagiários de um curso de Odontologia. Após análise detalhada, algumas inferências se destacaram: o reconhecimento do ambiente escolar como território fértil para o desenvolvimento de ações promotoras de saúde; a efetividade do instrumento "TPC" (Teorizar-Praticar-Criticar) no direcionamento dos acadêmicos estagiários no planejamento estratégico de atividades de educação em saúde bucal; a importância de se disseminar, em espaços científicos, os aprendizados advindos de experimentações práticas de estágios.


This is a report on an experience that describes, under a narrative-argumentative strategy, the political-pedagogical significance linked to the strategic planning of oral health education actions experienced in a school environment and experienced by university trainees from a Dentistry course. After a detailed analysis, some inferences were observed: the recognition of the school environment as a fertile territory for the development of health-promoting actions; the effectiveness of the "TPC" (Theorize-Practice-Criticize) instrument in directing university trainees in the strategic planning of oral health education activities; the importance of disseminating, in scientific spaces, the learning from practical experimentation during internships.

ABSTRACT

Introdução:O consumo de drogas pode promover consequências para o organismo, sobretudo a cavidade bucal. Objetivo:Verificar quais são as substâncias psicoativas mais utilizadas e suasmanifestações na cavidade bucal. Metodologia:Trata-se de uma revisão integrativa, realizadana base de dados Medical Publications (PubMed) com os descritores "Transtornos Relacionados ao Uso de Substâncias (Substance-Related Disor-ders)" e "Odontologia (Dentistry)" com o operador booleano "And".Foram seleciona-dos artigos primeiramente por meio de leituras exploratórias dos seus títulos e resumos, seguida da leitura dos artigos na íntegra, levando em consideração os critérios de inclusão, que consistiam em textos completos, publicados nos idiomas Português e Inglês, do tipo estudo transversal indexados na base de dados referida, no período de 2015 a 2020 e que associassem o uso das substâncias psicoativas com as manifestaçõesna cavidade bucal, e os critérios de exclusão, que foram artigos de opinião, relatos de caso, revisões de literatura e os estudos que não abordassem sobre a temática da pesquisa. Resultados:A amostra foi composta por 5 artigos seleciona-dos, em que 4 deles realizaram a pesquisa com homens e mulheres e apenas 1 com homens, em ambos os trabalhos a idade dos participantes foram superiores a 18 anos e as substâncias psicoativas analisadasvariaram entre ópio, crack, cocaína, heroína, maconha, álcool e tabaco. Como consequência ao uso dessas substânciasa perda den-tária, presença de cárie dentária e doença periodontal foram as principais manifesta-çõesbucais. Conclusões:O consumo de substâncias psicoativas aumenta o limiar de dor, podendo mascarar a sintomatologia dolorosa das manifestações bucais e postergar a busca por tratamento odontológico, agravando, por vezes, a condição bucal do indivíduo. Sendo portanto, de extrema importância o conhecimento e atuação do cirurgião dentista frente ao usuário de drogas, desde a prevenção, diagnóstico etratamento do caso (AU).


Introduction:Drug use can have consequences for the body, especially the oral cavity.Objective:To investigate the most used psychoactive substances and their manifesta-tions in the oral cavity. Methodology:This is an integrative review, carried out in the Medical Publications database (PubMed) with the descriptors "Substance-Related Dis-orders (Substance-Related Disorders)" and "Dentistry (Dentistry)" with the Boolean operator "And". Articles were selected first through exploratory readings of their titles and abstracts, followed by reading the articles in full, taking into account the inclusion criteria, which consisted of full texts, published in Portuguese and English, of the cross-sectional type indexed in the referred database, in the period from 2015 to 2020 and that associated the use of psychoactive substances with the manifestations in the oral cavity, and the exclusion criteria, which were opinion articles, case reports, litera-ture reviews and studies that did not address the research theme.Results:The sample consisted of 5 selected articles, of which 4 of them researched with men and women and only 1 with men. In both studies, the participants' age was over 18 years, and the psychoactive substances analyzed varied between opium, crack, cocaine, heroin, ma-rijuana, alcohol, and tobacco. As a consequence of using these substances, tooth loss, dental caries, and periodontaldisease were the main oral manifestations.Conclusions:The consumption of psychoactive substances increases the pain threshold, masks the painful symptoms of oral manifestations and postpones the search for dental treat-ment, sometimes worsening the individual's oral condition. Therefore, the knowledge and performance of the dental surgeon concerning the drug user is essential, from pre-vention, diagnosis, and treatment of the case (AU).

Los artículos fueron selec-cionados primero a través de la lectura exploratoria de sus títulos y resúmenes, se-guida de la lectura de los artículos en su totalidad, teniendo en cuenta los criterios de inclusión, que consistieron en textos completos, publicados en portugués e inglés, de tipo transversal indexados en la referida base de datos, en el período de 2015 a 2020 y que asociaran el uso de sustancias psicoactivas con las manifestaciones en la cavidad oral, y los criterios de exclusión, que fueron los artículos de opinión, los informes de casos, las revisiones bibliográficas y los estudios que no abordaron el tema de investi-gación. Resultados:Consistió en 5 artículos seleccionados, de los cuales 4 investigaron con hombres y mujeres y sólo 1 con hombres. En ambos estudios, la edad de los parti-cipantes era superior a 18 años y las sustancias psicoactivas analizadas variaban entre opio, crack, cocaína, heroína, marihuana, alcohol y tabaco. Como consecuencia del consumo de estas sustancias, la pérdida de dientes, la caries dental y la enfermedad periodontal fueron las principales manifestaciones orales.Conclusiones: El consumo de sustancias psicoactivas aumenta el umbral del dolor, enmascara los síntomas dolo-rosos de las manifestaciones orales y pospone la búsqueda de tratamiento odontoló-gico, empeorando en ocasiones la condición oral del individuo. Por lo tanto, el conoci-miento y la actuación del cirujano dentista en relación con el consumidor de drogas es esencial, desde la prevención, el diagnóstico y el tratamiento del caso (AU).

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To identify etiologic microbiota associated periodontal diseases among diabetes patients and the factors related to the most commonly identified bacteria species. Material and Methods: Periodontal plaque samples from 11 diabetic participants and 13 non-diabetic controls were collected to assess their aerobic and anaerobic bacterial growth. Different distinct colonies were identified by microscopic and 16srDNA sequencing. Pearson's chi-square tests were conducted to examine any association between categorical variables. Results: The diabetic subjects revealed a more intense plaque formation with a mean plaque index of 2.4 compared to 1.8 in non-diabetics. A total of 86 bacteria were isolated from 24 plaque samples, 44 were aerobic, and 42 were anaerobic. Only aerobic isolates, 22 from diabetic patients and 22 from non-diabetic patients, were evaluated in these analyses. Bacillus spp. (B. cereus mainly) and Klebsiella spp. (K. pneumoniae, K. aerogenes, K. oxytoca) were detected markedly higher in non-diabetic individuals than in diabetic subjects (p=0.026 and p=0.021, respectively). Some bacteria were only identified in the dental plaque of diabetic individuals, namely, Bacillus mojavensis, Enterobacter cloacae, Proteus mirabilis, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus hominis, Staphylococcus pasteuri, Streptococcus mutans, and Streptococcus pasteurianus. The presence of acid reflux and jaundice were significantly associated with the most common bacterial isolate, namely Bacillus spp., with the p-values of 0.007 and 0.001, respectively. Conclusion: Type-2 diabetes mellitus is associated with a higher amount of dental plaques. Periodontal plaque samples from diabetic and non-diabetic subjects possess differential microbial communities. Diabetic plaques contain more versatile microbes predominated by gram-positive streptococci and staphylococci.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To assess the impact of wearing palatal expanders on the oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) of children aged 8 to 10 years. Material and Methods: The sample consisted of 35 children aged 8 to 10 years treated at the orthodontics and pediatric dentistry outpatient clinics affiliated with the Dental School. Children were divided in two groups: 17 were submitted to palatal expansion treatment (Group 1), while 18 just received coronal polishing and topical fluoride application (Group 2). The Brazilian version of the Child Perceptions Questionnaire (CPQ8-10) was used to assess children's OHRQoL. The questionnaire was administered before the expander was placed, at the end of its activation, and before its removal. Intervals between the interviews were similar in the two groups. Descriptive statistics and ANOVA were used for data analyses. Results: The overall CPQ8-10 score was not significantly different between the groups. The results show statistically significant differences between the two groups only for the functional limitations domain after activation of the appliance (p=0.001). Conclusion: Palatal expanders may negatively affect children's functions only during the initial wearing period.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To investigate the correlation between human development and dental caries in 12-year-old schoolchildren from the twenty-seven Brazilian states and to analyze the spatial distribution of these variables. Material and Methods: This was an ecological study using secondary data from the National Epidemiological Oral Health Survey 2010 and from the United Nations Development Program. Human development was measured by the Human Development Index (HDI) and dental caries by the Decayed, Missing and Filled Teeth index (DMFT). Dental caries prevalence and experience at the age of 12, and state HDI were entered into Google Sheets® and Google My Maps® for map creation. Data were analyzed by Pearson's correlation (HDI and DMFT, DMFT individual components, prevalence of dental caries and prevalence of dental pain) (p<0.05). Results: Prevalence of dental caries ranged from 37.3% to 78.2% among the states. Dental caries was more prevalent in Rondônia (78.2%) and less prevalent in Santa Catarina (37.3%). Mean DMFT ranged from 1.06 to 4.81, with the highest value in Rondônia (4.81) and the lowest in Distrito Federal (1.06). HDI ranged from 0.631 (Alagoas) to 0.863 (Distrito Federal). There were negative correlations between HDI and dental caries (r=-0.504), dental caries experience (r=-0.459), decayed (r=-0.441) and missing (r=-0.441) components of the DMFT (p<0.05). Conclusion: Higher human development of the region lower dental caries experience and prevalence in 12-year-old Brazilian schoolchildren.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To analyze children's and parents' oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) and children's dental fears before and after the dental rehabilitation under general anesthesia (DRGA). Material and Methods: 104 parents and their 3 to 13-year-old children (5.90 ± 2.42) who received DRGA were surveyed before and after DRGA. The children were divided into two groups: Group 1 - healthy children (n=43) and Group 2 - children with medical problems (n=61). After recording their socio-demographic information, parents completed a self-administered questionnaire named Early Childhood Oral Health Impact Scale (ECOHIS), which includes two main parts - Child Impact Section (CIS) and Family Impact Section (FIS). On the other hand, the children received a dentist-administered questionnaire named Children's Fear Survey Schedule-Dental Subscale (CFSS-DS) and Frankle Behavior Scale (FBS). For statistical analyses, Wilcoxon Signed-Rank, Mann Whitney-U, Kruskal-Wallis, and Spearman's Correlation tests were used. Results: A statistically significant decrease in all CIS, FIS, ECOHIS and CFSS-DS scores was observed after DRGA (p<0.01). This decline was greater in healthy children than in children with systemic problems (p<0.01). Conclusion: Children's and parents' OHRQoL showed better results after DRGA. The decreases in dental anxiety in children were observed after DRGA.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To assess the current level of oral health knowledge and identify information sources among adolescents in Bhubaneswar, India. Material and Methods: A cross-sectional examination was conducted among 1330 adolescents aged 13 to 15 years enrolled in 24 randomly selected government and private schools in Bhubaneswar. A specially designed self-administered questionnaire was used to collect the responses. Chi-square test with a level of significance set at 5% was used for statistical analysis. Results: Parents (55%) followed by media (18%) were the major sources of oral health information among the study population, which was statistically not significant in relation to gender and school type. Many subjects (95.3%) perceived sweets could cause tooth decay; however, this was statistically significant only among school type (p<0.05). Around (45%) knew about fluoride and only 36% properly identified fluoride's action as preventing cavities. This was statistically significant among both gender and school type (p<0.05). Seventy-five percent of students effectively distinguished gum disease symptoms, which was significant only with gender (p<0.05). Around 55% identified that oral habits have an influence on oral health, which showed significance among gender (p<0.05). Conclusion: Children oral health knowledge was not satisfactory, highlighting the need to utilize parents, schoolteachers and media to provide oral health education. It's essential for designing and implementing a person-centered care model in dentistry.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To analyze the perception of mothers of children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) on the diagnosis moment and the child's health. Material and Methods: Research with a qualitative approach, carried out with 19 mothers of children with CP, in a public higher education institution, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. For data collection, the interview was used and for data interpretation, content analysis. Results: Mothers reported that the diagnosis of a child with CP resulted in major changes in the family's daily life, increasing their responsibility and demands. After the diagnosis, mothers revealed oscillating feelings, with progressively replaced by her motherly ability to take care, reestablishing the psychic balance. The health associated with the absence of disease and curative practices was frequently observed. Mothers reported a great concern with oral hygiene habits and frequent visits to the dentist. Conclusion: The diagnosis of a child with CP led to changes in the family's priorities and routine. After the moment of anguish, uncertainty and fear, the mothers accepted the reality. The biomedical principle significantly influenced the mother´s perception of health, being health perceived as the absence of disease and curative practices. In relation to oral health, practices widely spread and recommended by the media and health services, such as correct tooth brushing, showed an orientation of patients to maintain oral health.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To assess the association between dental caries experience, severe dental caries experience and socioeconomic determinants on oral health-related quality of life among children and their families. Material and Methods: This is a cross-sectional study whose sample was composed of children aged 4-12 years, who sought dental care in a dentistry school clinic, and their parents/caregivers. Dental caries experience and severe dental caries experience were assessed according to the DMF-T/dmf-t indexes. Parents/caregivers answered the Parental-Caregiver Perceptions Questionnaire (P-CPQ), the Family Impact Scale (FIS) and a questionnaire on socioeconomic and demographic conditions. Data analysis included the chi-square test and Poisson regression (PR). Results: The sample was composed of 105 children and their parents/caregivers. Severe dental caries experience in children was determinant for negative perception of children's OHRQoL by parents/caregivers (PR = 1.22; CI = 1.05-1.41). Negative impact on OHRQoL perceived by family members was determined by severe dental caries experience in children (PR = 1.22; CI = 1.05-1.42) and family income <5 minimum wage (PR = 1.32; CI = 1.08-1.61). Conclusion: Severe dental caries experience was associated with a negative impact on OHRQoL perceived by children and their families. Low family income was associated with a negative impact on the OHRQoL perceived by children and their families.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To analyze caries experience depending on periodontitis affection concomitant or not with cardiovascular risks or mental health issues with the hypothesis that worse accumulated caries experience is not necessarily the result of the presence of concomitant overall health issues. Material and Methods: All subjects of this cross-sectional study were participants of the Dental Registry and DNA Repository project. Variables age, ethnicity, sex, caries experience, periodontitis and mental disease statuses and blood pressure assessment, dental clinical data (DMFT, DMFS and periodontitis) were evaluated and collected from the clinical records. We used chi-square, Fisher's exact, or Student's t-tests to determine differences in frequencies of sex, age, ethnicity, and dental clinical data depending on caries experience, periodontitis, mental health status, and cardiovascular risks. The established alpha was 5%. Results: Of the total 1,437 subjects included in this study, 407 were individuals with high blood pressure and 1,030 were individuals without high blood pressure. Also, 558 were individuals with mental disease and 879 were individuals without mental disease. High blood pressure patients were mostly men (47.17%) and women were the majority when analyzing patients with mental illness (60.04%). Most of the patients in the different groups were white, with a mean age ranging from 15.4 to 88 years. Conclusion: We concluded that caries experience concomitant or not with periodontitis affection does not associate with high blood pressure and mental disease.
