AIM: To our knowledge, the prevalence and aetiology of molar-incisor hypomineralisation has not been discussed nor investigated in Turkish children in Istanbul. Therefore the aim of the present study is to investigate the prevalence and aetiology of MIH in a group of children in Istanbul. DESIGN: Between April and July 2007, a retrospective clinical study was initiated at the Dept. of Paediatric Dentistry, School of Dentistry, Yeditepe University, Istanbul, Turkey. A total of 147 children aged 7-9 years visiting our clinic were examined by two calibrated paediatric dentists (kappa: 0.89). The examiners used the criteria for the diag . . .nosis of demarcated opacities, post-eruption breakdown, atypical restorations, and extracted PFMs due to MIH developed by Weerheijm et al. RESULTS: In the present study, prevalence of MIH was 14.9%. Of the 22 children affected with MIH, 17 (77.2%) had only demarcated opacities, but no breakdown or atypical restorations. Regarding diseases in the first 3 years of life, 55% of MIH and 19.4% of non-MIH children had a disease history. 27% of MIH children had suffered from upper and lower respiratory tract infections including bronchitis. This was significantly different from non-MIH children ( Daha fazlası Daha az

Purpose: To compare the fluoride levels released from a polyacid-modified resin composite (Ultra BandLok), a resin-modified glass-ionomer cement (Multicure) and a conventional glass-ionomer cement (Meron). Methods: Fluoride concentration in the deionized water was measured at 1, 2, 3, 7, 14 and 28 days. Fluoride measurement was undertaken using a fluoride ion selective electrode connected to an ion-analyzer. Friedman test was used in the repeated measurements of multiple groups. Kruskal-Wallis test was used to compare the groups. Dunn's multiple comparison test was applied for the comparison of subgroups. Results: The fluoride relea . . .se pattern of the three materials was similar. The highest level of fluoride was obtained at the 24-hour measurement from all samples. According to comparisons among materials, Ultra BandLok released significantly less fluoride than Multicure and Meron (P? 0.01) at all the measurement times. In addition, the differences between the fluoride concentrations released from Multicure and Meron materials at all measurement days were not significant (P> 0.05) Daha fazlası Daha az

Objective To assess the influence of maternal and individual characteristics on self-reported dental health of Turkish school children aged 10-12 years with different socio-economic backgrounds. Method A. cross-sectional study of children aged 10 to 12 (n=611) using paired matches of self-administered questionnaires for children and their mothers. Clinical examinations based on World Health Organization criteria were conduced. The participation rate was 97% (n=591) for the children, 87% (n=533) for the mothers, and 95% (n=584) for the clinical examinations. Multiple linear regression, descriptive statistics, Spearman correlation coe . . .fficient and chi-square test were applied. Results Private school children's mothers were more likely to have had higher education (95% at least high school) than public school children's mothers (11%); they reported better dental health (above average) than did mothers of public school children (p=0.001). Among all mothers, those with above average self-reported dental health reported more regular dental visits than did those with below average scores (p=0.001). Frequency of regular dental visits and toothbrushing among children attending public schools (5%, 65%) were lower than those attending private school (43%, 79%), (p=0.001). The mean DMFS was negatively correlated with self-reported dental health (rs =-0.187, p=0.001). Toothbrushing frequency and school performance were the common factors positively associated with self-reported dental health, among all children. Conclusion The results emphasize the important role of mothers and their socio-economic background in enhancement of children's dental health. Their active role in conjunction with the potential of self-assessment provides a good basis for establishing and improving self-care among children, in developing countries in particular. © BASCD 2008 Daha fazlası Daha az

Aim: The potential buffering role of probiotic yogurt has not been investigated. The aim of the study was to determine the pH, titratable acidity of a selection of various probiotic yogurts, their buffering effects with an emphasis on the pH range in which the buffer is efficient. Material & Methods: A quantity of 25 ml of each yogurt was titrated with 1 mol/L sodium hydroxide, added gradually by 0.5 ml, until the pH reached 10 to assess the total titratable acidity - a measure of probiotic yogurt's own buffering capacity. Results: The initial pH was the lowest for Activia peach yogurt (4.40± 0.14) and the highest for Danone natural . . . yogurt (5.29± 0.10). The buffering capacities can be listed as follows: Danone natural >Danone peach >Activia plain >Activia strawberry >Activia peach. There were no statistically significant differences observed between yogurts within any of the five groups compared as a whole with one another. (p >0.05). Conclusions: Buffering capacities of probiotic yogurts should be undermined Daha fazlası Daha az

Objective: The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of the probiotic bacterium Lactobacillus reuteri on the levels of salivary mutans streptococci and lactobacilli in children with cleft lip/palate who used the novel drop containing L. reuteri. Material and Methods: The study group consisted of 19 operated cleft lip/ palate children aged 4 to 12 years. The study had a double-blind, randomized crossover design, and the experimental period consisted of four consecutive time periods. During periods 2 and 4, consisting of 25 days each, parents were instructed that their children should consume 5 drops per day (0.15 to . . .0.20 g) of probiotic or placebo drops produced by the same manufacturer. The probiotic drop, BioGaia Reuteri drops, contained L. reuteri DSM 17938 and L. reuteri ATCC PTA 5289 (?1 × 108 CFU/5 drops). The counts of salivary mutans streptococci and lactobacilli were evaluated using the CRT tests. The data were processed with NCSS 2007 software using chi-square and McNemar tests. Results: There was no statistically significant (p > .05) reduction of salivary mutans streptococci and lactobacilli after 25 days of consumption of both drops. Conclusions: The novel drop containing L. reuteri may not reduce the levels of salivary mutans streptococci and lactobacilli in cleft lip/palate children Daha fazlası Daha az

Aim: To evaluate the prevalence and aetiology of dental erosion in Greek minority school children living in Istanbul (Turkey). Methods: The present study was initiated in four Greek minority elementary schools in Istanbul where a total of 83 children (46 girls, 37 boys) between ages 7-14 years old were examined. Children were categorised into 7-11 and 12-14 ages groups. Data were obtained by clinical examination, questionnaire and standard data records. All tooth surfaces were examined, dental erosion was recorded per tooth and classified according to the index of Lussi et al.  Results: In the 7-11 yrs old group, 47.4% (n:18) . . .of the children exhibited dental erosion while in 12-14 yrs old group, 52.6% (n:20) of the children exhibited dental erosion. There were no statitistical differences between age, gender groups and findings of dental erosion (p>0.05). However prevalence of dental erosion in 12-14 yrs old was twice that of the 7-11 years old children. In general, an unusual drinking pattern of slow swallowing of beverages significantly affected the prevalence of dental erosion (p=0.03). Conclusion: Multiple regression analysis revealed no relationship between dental erosion and related erosive sources such as medical conditions, brushing habits, swimming, and the consumption of acidic fruit juices and beverages (p>0.05). However it should be noted that the sample size in the current study was small Daha fazlası Daha az

The aim of this study was to investigate the fluoride release and fluoride recharge behaviors of two conventional glass-ionomer cements (GICs) and two polyacid-modified composite resins (PMCRs) after exposure to mouthwash and toothpaste. Fluoride released from the materials was measured at 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 7th, 14 th, 21st, and 28th days. At 28th day, the specimens were divided into three groups. Specimens in the control group were stored in deionized water. For the other two groups, the specimens were exposed to 0.05% NaF solution and fluoridated toothpaste for one month. After refluoridation, fluoride amount was measured at 30t . . .h, 31 st, 32nd, 36th, 44th, 52 nd, and 60th days. All materials released fluoride. The highest amount of fluoride was obtained during the first 24 hours, and there was a statistically significant difference between the amounts of fluoride released from GICs and PMCRs (p<0.0001). After exposure to mouthwash and fluoridated toothpaste, all materials were recharged and continued releasing fluoride. While the amount of fluoride release from the materials increased after reflouridation, the increase was higher in GICs Daha fazlası Daha az

A number of storage media have been investigated as to their ability to maintain the viability of the periodontal ligament (PDL) cells and thus to permit longer extra-alveolar periods prior to replantation of avulsed teeth. The aim of the present in vitro study was to evaluate the number of viable PDL cells of avulsed teeth treated by Hank's Balanced Salt Solutions (HBSS), saline, a novel probiotic solution and milk. Thirty-six freshly extracted single-rooted human teeth with closed apices were divided into one of the four experimental groups and two control groups (N = 6 each). The positive and negative controls corresponded to 0 m . . .in and an 8-h dry time respectively. Following extraction, the coronal 3 mm of PDL tissue was scraped with a #15 scalpel to remove cells that might have been damaged. The experimental teeth were dried for 30 min followed by a 45 min immersion in one of the four experimental media. Each experimental tooth, after drying and soaking, was incubated for 30 min with a 2.5 ml solution of 0.2 mg ml-1 of collagenase CLS II and a 2.4 mg ml-1 solution of dispase grade II in phosphate buffer saline (PBS). The cells were then labelled with 0.4% Trypan blue for determination of viability. The teeth stored in positive control demonstrated the highest number of viable PDL cells followed in rank order by HBSS, saline, Lactobacillus reuteri solution and milk. There was no significant difference in the number of viable PDL cells between HBSS, milk, L. reuteri solution and saline. Within the parameters of this study, it appears that probiotic may be able to maintain PDL cell viability as HBSS, milk, or saline. © 2010 John Wiley & Sons A/S Daha fazlası Daha az

AIM: Aim of the present study is to demonstrate which words are widely used by children and a paediatric dentist during different dental procedures in conjunction with behaviour shaping in paediatric dentistry.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty children aged between 3.5 and 10.5 (10 F, 10 M) visiting the clinic of Yeditepe University were enrolled for the study. An audio recorder was hidden in the operatory room, the paediatric dentist was blind. The procedure was randomised as for each child only one appointment was recorded (one patient-one appointment-one procedure). Age, gender, appointment type, details of procedure performed were r . . .ecorded. At the end of every session, records were investigated regarding verbal communication.RESULTS: The paediatric dentist used a total of 5,005 words during the trial with minimum of 13 and max of 518 words in a session (mean 211.8 ± 153.1). There were no significant differences in the words used by the child and the practitioner regarding gender, session, and duration of being acquainted with (p>0.05). Regarding age groups, preschoolers (3.5-6 yrs old) significantly used more words than the schoolers (7- 10.5 yrs old) ( Daha fazlası Daha az
