5. Factors related to high dental caries experience in Palestinian pregnant women in the Jerusalem governorate: a cross-sectional study.

Factors related to high dental caries experience in Palestinian pregnant women in the Jerusalem governorate: a cross-sectional study. BACKGROUND: Beliefs about oral health during pregnancy demographic factors, such as level of education and socioeconomic status, are associated with an increased risk of oral diseases during pregnancy. The aim of this study was to assess the oral health status of pregnant women and the relation to the women's oral health knowledge, beliefs, behaviour, and access (...) to dental care. METHODS: For this cross-sectional study, pregnant women visiting pre-natal care clinics at the Palestinian Ministry of Health centres in the Jerusalem governorate were invited to complete a structured interview with questions about beliefs about oral health care and their oral hygiene practices. Screening for oral health conditions was done using the Decayed, Missed and Filled Teeth (DMFT) index to assess the women's dental caries experience, and gingival health indices (plaque, gingival

Ozone Gas Application on Oral Biofilm Does Not Effectively Arrest or Kill Bacteria Associated with Dental Caries UTCAT3271, Found CAT view, CRITICALLY APPRAISED TOPICs University: | | ORAL HEALTH EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROGRAM View the CAT / Title Ozone Gas Application on Oral Biofilm Does Not Effectively Arrest or Kill Bacteria Associated with Dental Caries Clinical Question In patients with dental caries, does gaseous ozone therapy significantly reduce or eradicate the responsible bacteria (...) in oral biofilm compared to lesions that receive no treatment? Clinical Bottom Line When applied as a gas to an active carious lesion, ozone therapy does not significantly arrest or eradicate the bacteria responsible for producing dental caries when compared to active carious lesions that receive no treatment. Many studies that were reviewed show a high risk of bias and inconsistent methods to conclusively demonstrate that ozone therapy is effective in arresting dental caries or is a cost-effective
