What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

121. There Is No Direct Link Between Asthma and Dental Caries but Associated Secondary Factors May Increase Caries Incidence

There Is No Direct Link Between Asthma and Dental Caries but Associated Secondary Factors May Increase Caries Incidence UTCAT2455, Found CAT view, CRITICALLY APPRAISED TOPICs University: | | ORAL HEALTH EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROGRAM View the CAT / Title There Is No Direct Link Between Asthma and Dental Caries but Associated Secondary Factors May Increase Caries Incidence Clinical Question Are adolescents and children with asthma more susceptible to dental caries? Clinical Bottom Line Evidence (...) for a definitive association between asthma and dental caries appears to be inconclusive. However, secondary factors of the disease could put both adolescents and children at greater risk of dental caries. Dentists should individually assess each asthmatic patient to determine increased caries risk.

122. Amalgam Versus Resin Composite Restorative Materials to Prevent Secondary Caries Via Antibacterial Properties

Amalgam Versus Resin Composite Restorative Materials to Prevent Secondary Caries Via Antibacterial Properties UTCAT2456, Found CAT view, CRITICALLY APPRAISED TOPICs University: | | ORAL HEALTH EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROGRAM View the CAT / Title Amalgam Versus Resin Composite Restorative Materials to Prevent Secondary Caries Via Antibacterial Properties Clinical Question In a patient with high caries risk, are dental amalgams or resin composites more effective as antibacterial agents (...) in preventing secondary caries? Clinical Bottom Line In vitro amalgam certainly showed more antibacterial potential than composite material, but for a high caries risk patient it is not clear whether the amalgam positive benefits of this study will translate into the same results in the oral cavity of patients as opposed to composite. Thus good technique and preparation formation should be considered first priority when considering the formation of secondary caries. Best Evidence (you may view more info

Clinical Bottom Line Salivary bacteria levels (Lactobacillus and Streptococcus mutans) cannot reliably be used to predict the caries activities or caries risk in all groups of people.

Clinical Bottom Line For patients with buccal recurrent caries, CBCT (...) coefficients ranged from 0.517 - 0.691 for intraoral film and 0.582 - 0.649 for CBCT. The following values include all three observers: sensitivity ranged from 0.206-0.912, specificity ranged from 0.209-0.953, PPV ranged from 0.458-0.807, NPV ranged from 0.388-0.886, and FPR ranged from 0.07-0.791. ROC analysis and sensitivity measurement indicated better performance for both CBCT systems than for intraoral detectors.

127. In Adult Dental Patients, Weak Evidence Suggests That Using A Caries Risk Assessment To Guide Treatment Planning May Result In Lower Caries Incidence

In Adult Dental Patients, Weak Evidence Suggests That Using A Caries Risk Assessment To Guide Treatment Planning May Result In Lower Caries Incidence UTCAT2392, Found CAT view, CRITICALLY APPRAISED TOPICs University: | | ORAL HEALTH EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROGRAM View the CAT / Title In Adult Dental Patients, Weak Evidence Suggests That Using A Caries Risk Assessment To Guide Treatment Planning May Result In Lower Caries Incidence Clinical Question In an adult dental patient, does the use (...) of a Caries Risk Assessment instrument to guide treatment planning result in a lower caries incidence? Clinical Bottom Line In an adult dental patient, using a caries risk assessment to guide treatment planning results in lowered caries risk and may result in lower caries incidence, according to a randomized controlled trial. Caries increment (change in DMFS) was lower in the treatment group, though other measures of caries incidence showed no statistical difference between the treatment and control

Clinical Bottom (...) Line Fissure sealants arrest caries progression in primary teeth with non cavitated occlusal caries. This is supported by a randomized controlled trial in which fissure sealants with total retention had the same clinical efficacy as composite resin in the primary dentition. This treatment is a non invasive alternative available to pediatric patients.
