In this paper, a novel framework for designing optimized photonic crystal (PhC) sensors has been proposed. The complexity of such structures has resulted in the lack of an analytical method to design the structures. Therefore, this framework aims to provide a comprehensive and automatic method to find the best values for the structural parameters without human involvement. The framework is explained with an example of designing a PhC liquid sensor. In the framework, an optimizer called the "multi-objective ...
To measure the dental anxiety levels of post-graduate pediatric dental students (PGS) and their instructors, and their ranking of the most anxiety provoking situations in the dental situation; to investigate gender differences with regard to dental anxiety.
There is a scarcity of studies on Canadian baccalaureate dental hygienists. As discussions about baccalaureate education for dental hygiene continue on a national level, examining outcomes of earning a dental hygiene degree is paramount.
To describe the dental health status of elderly people in nursing homes receiving domiciliary dental care.
The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of dental fear, the relationship between dental fear and dental caries and the dentist appearance most likely to reduce anxiety among children. In this way, dental treatment could be made more effective by changing the dentist's appearance.
A questionnaire-based study evaluating differences between dental students in Paris (F) and Malmö (SE) regarding diagnosis and treatment decisions of patients with different severity levels of periodontal diseases.
To evaluate differences between last-year dental students in Paris (F) and Malmö (SE) Dental Schools, in regard to their judgement and decision-making within periodontology.
This cross-sectional study evaluated the prevalence of dental fear and associated factors in schoolchildren aged 8 to 12 years old, in Pelotas, southern Brazil. Schoolchildren enrolled in 20 public and private schools were selected using a multi-stage sample design. Sociodemographic characteristics, children's dental visit and oral hygiene habits were assessed by questionnaires. The Dental Anxiety Question was used to measure dental fear prevalence. Children's clinical examination evaluated presence of dent...
Word-of-mouth (WOM) refers to communication among consumers, which greatly influences the marketing strategies of dental clinics. This study aimed to explore factors that affect use of WOM by dental patients and to analyse their pathways.
We present a case of a 17-year-old girl with sialadenitis and sialocele due to trauma sustained from a dental procedure. Our objectives are to review relevant literature and anatomy of the floor of the mouth and salivary glands and discuss potential complications of dental procedures.
Maternal behaviours during pregnancy are likely to play a significant role in the development of dental caries in children. Although midwives are well placed to discuss oral health and provide information to women, dental attendance by women during pregnancy is minimal. This study aimed to explore midwives' experience of facilitating pregnant women's access to dental care and to document women's experience of receiving dental information and care during pregnancy.
In a dental CT scan, the presence of dental fillings or dental implants generates severe metal artifacts that often compromise readability of the CT images. Many metal artifact reduction (MAR) techniques have been introduced, but dental CT scans still suffer from severe metal artifacts particularly when multiple dental fillings or implants exist around the region of interest. The high attenuation coefficient of teeth often causes erroneous metal segmentation, compromising the MAR performance. We propose a m...
This aim of this study was to investigate the cell behavioural response on clinically applied dental composites in exposition-relevant target cells, i.e. human gingival fibroblasts (HGF) and epithelial keratinocytes (HGK).
This paper proposes a novel framework for multi-objective optimization of photonic crystal (PhC) filters and compares it with a single-objective optimization approach. In this framework, an optimizer called the Multi-Objective Gray Wolf Optimizer has been utilized to automatically find the optimal designs. The proposed method is able to design any kind of PhC filter. As a case study, a new structure of super defect PhC filter for application in the wavelength-division multiplexer (WDM) is designed using the...
In this study, factors that may influence the dental visiting patterns of people over 65 living independently were investigated. The results of a questionnaire (n = 164; 53% response) revealed that 89% of them regularly visited the dentist for a check-up. Factors affecting dental visits were: whether or not one had difficulty planning a visit, whether or not one was motivated to make an appointment and actually made one, the condition of one's teeth; whether or not one had dental insurance and whether or no...
To identify oro-dental characteristics and genetic etiology of a family affected with non-syndromic oro-dental anomalies.
Socioeconomic position (SEP) is inversely associated with most oral health outcomes, but the patterns of association may vary depending on the specific outcome. We estimated associations between SEP and two oral health outcomes, dental caries and traumatic dental injuries (TDI), in Quebec children.
Dental trauma in school populations has a high frequency and school teachers are often close to the place where such injuries occur. However, many studies have confirmed the lack of knowledge as to how to act in these cases. The aim of this study was to determine the knowledge in regard to dental trauma of school teachers in Colombia.
The aim of this study was to develop the Turkish version of the Index of Dental Anxiety and Fear (IDAF-4C) and also to explore factors associated with dental anxiety in clinical pediatric dental patients (PDPs).
This study investigated risk factors for tooth injuries in individuals from a dental clinical reference service for patients with special needs in Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil. This is a retrospective cohort study that evaluated 493 dental charts of individuals with or without tooth injuries at their first dental appointment. The dependent variable was the time of occurrence of new dental traumatic injuries and was measured in months. Gender, age, International Code of Diseases, mother's education, mouth brea...
The scope of this study was to investigate dental care from the life course perspective and its determinant factors among young people in the city of Sobral, State of Ceará, Brazil. A cohort study was conducted with waves in 2000, 2006 and 2012 with 482 young people aged between 17 and 21 years. Two outcomes were investigated: immediate dental care and the lack of dental care, based on the dental trajectory in relation to restorative treatment. Socioeconomic conditions and recourse to oral health services ...

To analyze the prevalence and level of dental pain among adult individuals with severe dental anxiety (DA), and the association between dental pain and oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL).
Changes in dental hygienists' scope of practice in the United States (U.S.) are not independent of general dentists' attitudes and behavior related to dental hygienists' professional roles. The purpose of this study was to assess perceptions and knowledge of general dentists concerning the legally allowable duties of dental hygienists in their state versus the services they provide in their individual practices; the importance of dental hygienists' contributions to the practice; and how well dental hygienis...
