The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 21 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books. BioPortfolio aims to publish relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with users selected topics.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
Maxillary sinus floor augmentation without grafts has been more widely used, but the efficacy is still controversial.
Associations of alexithymia with temporomandibular pain disorders (TMD), facial pain, head pain and migraine have been described, but the role of the different dimensions of alexithymia in pain development remained incompletely understood.
Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) are frequent and disabling, and hence, preventing them is an important health issue. Combining orthodontic and surgical treatments for malocclusions has been shown to affect temporomandibular joint (TMJ) health. However, publications regarding the risk factors that predict negative TMJ outcomes after orthognathic surgery are scarce.
Masseter muscle function influences mandibular bone homeostasis. As previously reported, bone resorption markers increased in the mouse mandibular condyle two days after masseter paralysis induced with botulinum toxin type A (BoNTA), followed by local bone loss.
The aim of the study was to examine whether oral health as an infection focus could mediate disease course in patients with Behçet's disease (BD).
The potential of non-invasive optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a tool for assessment of fit of indirect reconstructions is not fully explored.
The aim of this study was to test the effect of a single-implant retained mandibular overdenture (SIMO), compared with conventional denture (CD), on masticatory performance measured by the mixing ability of a two-coloured chewing gum.
Endogenous pain modulation (EPM) reflects the brain's ability to modulate incoming nociceptive inputs, and deficient EPM was implicated as a chronic pain mechanism. EPM status was investigated in temporomandibular disorders (TMD) patients with conflicting results, and its relationship with clinical characteristics in this population is not well known.
The total tenderness score is commonly used in headache practice and contributes valuable information.
Ancillary factors, not directly related to treatment, often play a significant role by affecting therapeutic outcome. A search of the literature was conducted including words related to the placebo phenomenon and orofacial diseases. Therefore, critical factors have been grouped into three major categories: 1) The natural course of the diseases; 2) The regression of the symptoms to their mean intensity; 3) Placebo response. This topical narrative review describes the elements mentioned above, provides an up-...
transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive method of brain stimulation suggested as a therapeutic tool for pain, and is related to reversal of maladaptive plasticity associated with chronic pain.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by recurrent episodes of partial or complete upper airway collapse during sleep and is highly prevalent in the general population. The nasopharyngeal airway stent (Nastent) is a specifically designed, preformed silicone tube that intends to maintain the upper airway patency during sleep and reduce snoring and sleep apnea.
The number of people with dementia and natural dentition is growing. As dementia progresses, the degree of self-care decreases and the risk of oral health problems and orofacial pain increases.
After root canal treatment, a choice is made between different coronal restorations which in the long run could affect the survival of the tooth.
Cognitive status is important for performing the assessment and treatment of dysphagia. Nonetheless, the cognitive neuropsychological profile of patients with stroke and dysphagia is not studied as deeply enough as it should be. On one hand, focal and non-focal brain lesions may lead to dysphagia and cognitive disorders, and on the other hand, the cognitive status possibly affects swallowing. In this study, cognition is supposed to be a mediator between brain lesion and swallowing disorder (dysphagia). The ...
Deformation of the mandibular condyle can be associated with anterior disk displacement (ADD) or involvement of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) by juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Diagnostic differentiation is critical for proper management.
To evaluate whether the presence of non-carious cervical lesions (NCCLs) was related to the considered risk factors and to show the corresponding odds ratio in a predictive model.
The aim of this study was to analyze morphological changes in the upper airways in patients with anterior open bite treated with temporary anchorage devices for intrusion of upper posterior teeth.
This study aimed to investigate the possible influence of the RAP on dental implant osseointegration. Orthognathic surgery was set as an intervention for RAP, and a multi-center cohort study of two groups was undertaken. Group O included patients with single implant placement at least 4 months after orthognathic surgery and functional loading for more than 1 year, while controls (Group C) were without any major surgery. Clinical and radiographic assessments of implants, including changes in marginal bone le...
The aim of this systematic review (SR) was to determine the association between temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) and pubertal development. Due to the inadequacy of the conventional PICO (Population, Interventions, Comparisons and Outcome) format used for intervention-based SRs, the Joanna Briggs Institute's guidelines for synthesizing evidence related to associations with a focus on etiology was adopted. A search of the PubMed and LIVIVO databases covering the period from January 1980 to May 2018 yielded ...
To assess the effect of age on swallowing with a focus on structural movement, timing, and duration of physiologic events.
The aim of this study was to determine if there exists a higher prevalence of tinnitus in patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) than in patients without TMDs. A systematic review was conducted in PubMed/MEDLINE for articles published between January 1992 and April 2018 in accordance with the PRISMA statement. Studies were included in this review only if they assessed TMDs using the research diagnostic criteria (RDC)/TMD or DC/TMD. A total of five studies were included in the systematic review, an...
The mandibular advancement device (MAD) is widely used for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) treatment, and several studies have demonstrated its effectiveness. However, no comprehensive studies have yet examined the biomechanical safety of the MAD.
Extensive investigation into the mechanism of chronic obstructive sialadenitis (COS) calls for a reliable model that mimics the onset and progression of the disease. Duct obstruction is closely correlated with COS, and partial duct obstruction is usually observed in COS. Partial ligation of ducts or vessels is a valid treatment to mimic pathological processes in certain animal studies. In this study, we developed a novel animal model of COS by incomplete ligation of Wharton's duct and clarified the correspo...
The aim of this study was to examine and compare the oral function of older people with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) or dementia.
