Salivary Parameters (Salivary Flow, pH and Buffering Capacity) in Stimulated Saliva of Mexican Elders 60 Years Old and Older

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.036
Pages: 
758–65
Synopsis: 
Chewing-stimulated saliva (paraffin method) was collected and the salivary flow rate, pH and buffer capacity were measured in a group of Mexican elders. We found that salivary parameters varied in relation to selected socio-economic, clinical and behavioural variables.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To compare a limited array of chewing-stimulated saliva features (salivary flow, pH and buffer capacity) in a sample of elderly Mexicans with clinical, socio-demographic and socio-economic variables.

Oral Health Status and Treatment Needs of Iruligas at Ramanagara District, Karnataka, India

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.189
Pages: 
73–80
Synopsis: 
The ‘Iruliga’ tribal community residing at Ramanagara District, Karnataka, India is the jungle tribe of the plains. No studies are available on their oral health status. Hence this pioneering study aims to assess the oral health status and treatment needs of the ‘Iruliga’ community, which is transiting from a hunter-gatherer lifestyle to a more modern lifestyle.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To assess the oral health status and treatment needs of Iruliga tribal community residing at Ramanagara District, Karnataka, India.

Estimation of the Levels of C-reactive Protein, Interleukin-6, Total Leukocyte Count, and Differential Count in Peripheral Blood Smear of Patients with Chronic Periodontitis in a South Indian Population

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.096
Pages: 
826–31
Synopsis: 
Periodontitis results in higher systemic levels of C-reactive protein, interleukin-6, total leukocyte count and neutrophils. These elevated inflammatory factors may increase inflammatory activity in atherosclerotic lesions, potentially increasing the risk for cardiovascular events.

ABSTRACT

Aims: The aim of the present study is to investigate systemic levels of inflammatory markers of cardiovascular diseases like C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), total leukocyte count and differential count in patients with chronic periodontitis, in comparison to healthy individuals without periodontal disease.

Correlation of Radiographic Mental Foramen Position and Occlusion in Three Different Indian Populations

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.143
Pages: 
269–74
Synopsis: 
This study examines the shape, position and symmetry of the mental foramen, its continuity with the inferior dental canal and inter-foramen distance on a digital panoramic view and correlates it with Angle’s molar relations in both genders of three Indian subpopulations.

ABSTRACT

Background: The knowledge of the position of the mental foramen (MF) is important for administrating local anaesthesia for diagnostic, surgical or operative procedures.

Role of Reactive Oxygen Species and Advanced Glycation End Products in the Malfunctioning of Dental Implants

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.105
Pages: 
419–23
Synopsis: 
Pathogenesis of peri-implantitis remains largely unknown. In this study, we have used salivary and tissue samples of patients with peri-implantitis and have highlighted a significant role for oxidative stress and advanced glycation end products in the pathogenesis.

Comparative Study of the Osteoblastic Activity of Two Implant Systems (Endopore versus Entergra) Utilizing Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT): Experimental Study in Pigs Model

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.058
Pages: 
145–8
Synopsis: 
In this report, we describe the use of quantitative single photon emission computed tomography as a tool for comparing the osseointegrating capabilities of two types of implants. Results suggest that there is little difference in bone regeneration between the porous surface and screw type implants.

Treatment Needs for Dental Caries, Restorative Care Index and Index of Extractions in Adolescents 12 and 15 Years Old

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.300
Pages: 
636–41
Synopsis: 
Oral health studies on adolescents are sparse. We characterized the patterns of health services utilization and unmet needs for tooth decay. Large unmet treatment needs, relatively low experience of restorative treatment, and few tooth extractions were moderated by socio-economic variables.
ABSTRACT
 
Objective: To determine the Treatment Needs Index (TNI) for dental caries, the restorative Care Index (CI), and to introduce a Tooth Extractions Index (TEI) to estimate past and current treatment needs among Mexican adolescents.
