    Mechanical properties of multi-layered translucent zirconia materials produced with different strategies for gaining translucency; differences in yttria content or color saturation.2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose 

    This study aimed to evaluate the mechanical properties of the different layers of multi-layered zirconia materials produced with different strategies for gaining translucency.

     

    Materials and methods 

    Sixty zirconia specimens were prepared in a bar shape from two different partially sintered multi-layered zirconia blanks (KATANA™ Multi-layered Zirconia HTML, Kuraray Noritake Dental, EU) and (IPS e.max® ZirCAD Prime, Ivoclar, USA). The specimens were distributed into two groups based on the material used (n=30) and further subdivided into three subgroups according to the different layers of zirconia blanks: translucent, transition, and dentin (n=10). All specimens were subjected to a static three-point flexural strength test. A one-way ANOVA and a T-test were performed to determine the significant differences among the groups. 

     

    Results 

    The different layers of ZirCAD Prime showed significant differences in flexural strength (p=0.001). In contrast, the different layers of KATANA™ HTML showed no significant differences (p=0.437). A T-test was conducted to compare the results from different layers within the same material. The results of the One-Way ANOVA test for the different groups of KATANA™ HTML demonstrated no difference between the groups (p=0.437). 

     

    Conclusion 

    Different compositions of different multi-layered zirconia materials result in various mechanical properties. Brand-specific differences are an essential consideration for dentists and dental technicians when using multi-layered zirconia. It is crucial to consider various factors such as type of restoration, positioning of the restoration in the disc (nesting), and restoration to be used anteriorly or posteriorly, and the desired esthetical requirements as the translucency are gained in different ways.

    Hur tandvården framställs i pressen och dess påverkan på allmänhetens förtroende - Media innehållsanalys2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Eftersom medierapportering är en viktig faktor som kan påverka allmänhetens förtroende gentemot tandvården är syftet med studien att undersöka hur tandvården framställs i pressen. Material & metod: För att undersöka vad och hur mycket svensk press har rapporterat om tandvården mellan 2007 – 2018 i allmän samt negativ mening användes två källurval. Det ena urvalet kallades för det breda källurvalet och inkluderade all svensk redaktionell press i retrievers mediearkiv. Det andra källurvalet kallades för det begränsade källurvalet och inkludera endast sex räckviddstarka källor. Materialet analyserades både kvantitativt och kvalitativt med hjälp av metoden Media innehållsanalys. Resultat: Den totala publiciteten om tandvård i allmän mening var som högst år 2008, därefter har den minskat i jämn takt. Den negativa rapporteringen har varit ojämn med tydliga ökningar vissa år som kan härledas till specifika händelser som rör tandvården. Inom den negativa rapporteringen skrevs det om tandläkare som blivit av med sin legitimation samt att det inom tandvården förekommer slarv, felbehandling, överbehandling och fusk. Men framförallt skrevs det negativt om tandvårdssystemets funktionssätt och att tandvården är dyr. Slutsats: Genom att jämföra tillgängliga kundnöjdhet och förtroende mätningar med den negativa samt allmänna medierapporteringen, kunde vi inte konstatera att medierapporteringen har påverkat allmänhetens förtroende mellan 2007 - 2018. Vi fann bland annat att när det väl skrivs negativt om tandvården riktades främst kritik mot privattandvården, trots detta var förtroende- och kundnöjdhetsnivå högre för privattandvården jämfört med folktandvården. Fortsatta studier behövs för att undersöka hur medierapportering påverkar individens förtroende för tandvården.

    The impact of dental implant length on failure rates: a systematic review and meta-analysis2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

     To evaluate the impact of implant length on failure rates between short (<10 mm) and long (≥10 mm) dental implants.

     

    Materials and methods

    A search was undertaken in three electronic databases, complemented by manual search of some journals. Implant failure was the outcome evaluated, with the estimate of relative effect expressed in risk ratio (RR). Heterogeneity among studies was evaluated by I2statistic. Inverse variance method was used for random- or fixed-effects models. Quality assessment of the studies was performed, and a funnel plot was drawn. A meta-regression was performed in order to verify how the RR was associated with the follow-up time.

     

    Results

    The reviews included 353 publications. Altogether, there were 25,490 short implants and 159,435 long implants. Pairwise meta-analysis showed that short implants had a higher risk of failure than long implants (RR 2.437, p<0.001). The meta-regression observed that the follow-up time did not have any effect of the RR of failure between short and long implants. A sensitivity analysis plotting together only the studies with follow-up up until 7 years, resulted in an estimated increase of 0.6 in RR for every additional month of follow-up.

     

    Conclusion

    Short implants showed (< 10 mm) a 2.5 times higher risk of failure than long implants (≥ 10 mm). Implant failure is multifactorial and the implant length is only one of the many factors contributing to the loss of implant. A good treatment plan and the patient’s general health should be taken into account when planning for an implant treatment.

    The Impact of Dental Implant Length on Failure Rates: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis2021Inngår i: Materials, ISSN 1996-1944, E-ISSN 1996-1944, Vol. 14, nr 14, artikkel-id 3972Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The present review aimed to evaluate the impact of implant length on failure rates between short (<10 mm) and long (>= 10 mm) dental implants. An electronic search was undertaken in three databases, as well as a manual search of journals. Implant failure was the outcome evaluated. Meta-analysis was performed in addition to a meta-regression in order to verify how the risk ratio (RR) was associated with the follow-up time. The review included 353 publications. Altogether, there were 25,490 short and 159,435 long implants. Pairwise meta-analysis showed that short implants had a higher failure risk than long implants (RR 2.437, p < 0.001). There was a decrease in the probability of implant failure with longer implants when implants of different length groups were compared. A sensitivity analysis, which plotted together only studies with follow-up times of 7 years or less, resulted in an estimated increase of 0.6 in RR for every additional month of follow-up. In conclusion, short implants showed a 2.5 times higher risk of failure than long implants. Implant failure is multifactorial, and the implant length is only one of the many factors contributing to the loss of an implant. A good treatment plan and the patient's general health should be taken into account when planning for an implant treatment.

    Influence of Crown-Implant Ratio and Implant Inclination on Marginal Bone Loss around Dental Implants Supporting Single Crowns in the Posterior Region: A Retrospective Clinical Study.2023Inngår i: Journal of Clinical Medicine, E-ISSN 2077-0383, Vol. 12, nr 9, artikkel-id 3219Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this present record-based retrospective study was to investigate the influence of the crown-implant ratio (CIR) and implant inclination in relation to the occlusal plane on the marginal bone loss (MBL) around dental implants supporting single crowns in the posterior region of the jaws. All the cases of implant-supported single crowns in the premolar and molar regions were initially considered for inclusion. Only implants not lost, with baseline radiographs taken within 12 months after implant placement and with a minimum of 36 months of radiological follow-up, were considered for the analysis of MBL. Univariate linear regression models were used to compare MBL over time between 12 clinical covariates, after which a linear mixed-effects model was built. After the exclusion of 49 cases, a total of 316 implant-supported single crowns in 234 patients were included. The results from the statistical models suggested that implant inclination and anatomical- and clinical CIR (the main related factors investigated in the study) were not statistically significantly related to MBL over time. Age (older people), tooth region (premolar), and bruxism (bruxers) had a statistically significant influence on MBL over time.

    Efficacy of fluoride varnish in preventing white spot lesions during treatment with fixed orthodontic appliances A triple blinded randomized controlled trial2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a novel fluoride varnish (NFPV, Fluor Protector S) in preventing development of white spot lesions in adolescents undergoing treatment with fixed orthodontic appliances. Material and methods: 185 patients aged between 12 and 18 years planned for orthodontic treatment with fixed appliance were randomized into varnish or placebo group. The varnish group received a varnish with the active ingredient ammonium fluoride and the placebo group received a similar varnish but without ammonium fluoride. All patients received treatment with fixed orthodontic appliance in the upper arch for a period of more than one year, and before bonding all patients had three intra-oral photos. Varnish in both groups was applied on the maxillary anterior teeth and premolars during every check-up at the orthodontic clinic (every 6 weeks). After debond, the composite on the teeth was carefully removed using carbide bur and three new intra-oral photos were taken. Finally, white spot lesions (WSL) were evaluated and scored on a monitor in a dark room using Gorelick scoring index. Results: 66 patients of the 185 patients were debonded and represent the final number of patients included in present master thesis. The incidence of WSL after debond was 19.9% in the test group and 18.1% in the placebo group, respectively. No statistically significant difference between the groups was recorded. Conclusion: Based on the limited amount of the patients in present master thesis, the null hypothesis was confirmed, there is no additional benefit to apply ammonium fluoride varnish during treatment with fixed orthodontic appliance to reduce the incidence of WSL.

    Hawthorne effect reporting in orthodontic randomized controlled trials: truth or myth? Blessing or curse?2018Inngår i: European Journal of Orthodontics, ISSN 0141-5387, E-ISSN 1460-2210, Vol. 40, nr 5, s. 475-479Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective To investigate in 10 orthodontic journals how many randomized controlled trials (RCTs) considered the Hawthorne effect, and if considered, to determine whether it was related to the patients or the therapists involved in the trial and, finally, to discuss the Hawthorne effect in an educational way. Materials and methods A search was performed on the Medline database, via PubMed, for publication type ‘randomized controlled trial’ published for each journal between 1 August 2007 and 31 July 2017. The American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Angle Orthodontist, Australian Orthodontic Journal, Dental Press Journal of Orthodontics, European Journal of Orthodontics, Journal of Orthodontics, Journal of Orofacial Orthopedics, Korean Journal of Orthodontics, Orthodontics and Craniofacial Research and Progress in Orthodontics were assessed. Two independent reviewers extracted the data and identified whether the Hawthorne effect was considered or discussed in the articles and whether the Hawthorne effect was related to the behaviour of the patients, the therapists, or both. Results The initial search generated 502 possible trials. After applying the inclusion and exclusion criteria, 290 RCTs were included and assessed. The Hawthorne effect was considered or discussed in 10 of 290 RCTs (3.4%), and all were related to the patients’ and none to the therapists’ behaviour. Conclusions The Hawthorne effect reported in orthodontic RCTs was suboptimal. The researchers’ lack of knowledge about this phenomenon is evident, despite evidence that the Hawthorne effect may cause over-optimistic results or false-positive bias.

    The reporting of blinding in orthodontic randomized controlled trials: where do we stand?2019Inngår i: European Journal of Orthodontics, ISSN 0141-5387, E-ISSN 1460-2210, Vol. 41, nr 1, s. 54-58Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To analyse in 10 orthodontic journals how many randomized controlled trials (RCTs) performed 'single-', 'double-', 'triple-', or 'outcome assessors blinding' and to evaluate, from the number of RCTs that did not conduct blinding, how many could actually have achieved it. Material and methods: Randomized controlled trials published in 10 orthodontic journals between 1 September 2012 and 28 February 2018 were included. A search was performed in PubMed and conducted for publication type 'randomized controlled trial' for each journal. Two reviewers independently analysed each RCT and registered that blinding was performed and included which specific type. It was also evaluated whether misclassifications of blinding items occurred and whether it was possible to achieve blinding among the RCTs that did not perform blinding. Results: After applying the inclusion criteria, 203 RCTs were assessed, and 61.6 per cent of them had used blinding, with the main type being 'outcome assessors blinding' (40.4%) followed by 'single-blinding' (15.3%), 'double-blinding' (2.5%), and 'triple-blinding' (3.4%). In 38.4 per cent of the trials, no blinding was performed; however, 79.4 per cent of them could have achieved blinding. Fifteen RCTs (7.3%) misclassified the blinding in relation to single-, double-, or triple-blinding. Journals followed the CONSORT (AJODO, EJO, JO, OCR) published together significantly more RCTs that performed blinding than journals not following the CONSORT. Conclusions: Blinding of outcome assessors was the most frequent type, as orthodontic trials are often of intervention design and thereby difficult to mask for patients and trial staff. The misclassifications of blinding items may indicate suboptimal knowledge among researchers and peer-reviewers regarding the definitions for diverse blinding types.

    Do fixed orthodontic appliances cause halitosis? A systematic review2019Inngår i: BMC Oral Health, ISSN 1472-6831, E-ISSN 1472-6831, Vol. 19, nr 1, artikkel-id 72Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To examine: (I) the current evidence of the impact of fixed orthodontic appliances on the development of halitosis in patients undergoing orthodontic treatment, and (II) the influence of different orthodontic bracket systems on halitosis. Material and methods: Three electronic databases (PubMed, Scopus, and Cochrane Library) were searched prior to March 15, 2018. The review was systematically conducted and reported according to the Cochrane Handbook and the PRISMA statement. Only Randomised Clinical Trials (RCTs) were considered. Selected full-text papers were independently assessed by four investigators and any disagreements were resolved by consensus. The Cochrane Handbook was used to grade the risk of bias and the quality of evidence was rated according to GRADE. Results: Out of 363 identified studies, three RCTs on halitosis and fixed orthodontic appliances met the inclusion criteria. The risk of bias in the three studies was rated as high and the quality of evidence was rated as very low. Conclusions/clinical implications: There is a lack of scientific evidence that subjects with fixed orthodontic appliances develop halitosis during treatment. Additional well-conducted RCTs with extended periods of assessment are needed as well as consensus concerning cut-off values for the diagnosis of halitosis.

    Teeth movement 12 years after orthodontic treatment with and without retainer: relapse or usual changes?2020Inngår i: European Journal of Orthodontics, ISSN 0141-5387, E-ISSN 1460-2210, Vol. 42, nr 1, s. 52-59, artikkel-id cjz020Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    AIMS: To identify if lower incisor movements after orthodontic treatment are due to the relapse of the orthodontic treatment or due to natural growth. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: The subjects consisted of 92 patients who have had orthodontic treatment, divided into three groups, group 1: 38 individuals had no retainer in the lower jaw. Group 2: 24 individuals had a retainer 0.028 inch, a spring hard wire bonded to the mandibular canines only. Group 3: 30 individuals had a 0.0195-inch Twist-Flex wire, bonded to all mandibular incisors and canines. Study models before orthodontic treatment (T0), immediately after orthodontic treatment (T1), 6 years after orthodontic treatment (T2), and 12 years after orthodontic treatment (T3) were used for the measurements. The wires in groups 2 and 3 were removed after mean 2.6 years (SD 1.49). Little Irregularity Index (LII), inter-canine distance, available mandibular anterior space, and number of crowded incisors were registered. A Tooth Displacement Index (TDI) was developed to measure the tooth displacement directions at T0 and T3. RESULTS: The LII showed equal values before treatment (T0) and at the follow-up registrations (T2 and T3). But about 25 per cent of the tooth displacements at T2 and T3 did not exist before treatment, at T0. This indicates usual growth changes and not relapse of the orthodontic treatment. CONCLUSION: As about 25 per cent of the displaced incisors can be considered as an effect of natural growth, not a relapse of the orthodontic treatment, it is valuable to use a displacement index in combination with other variables for investigations of stability after orthodontic treatment. Importance of the present study is that it is possible to differ between relapse and usual growth changes.

    Determining the link between Chronic Periodontitis and Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: A questionnaire-based study2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet med studien var att se om det fanns en correlation mellan AAA och kronisk parodontit med hjälp av en enkät. Material och metod: Män som har undergått screening hos Kärlcentrum vid Skånes Universitetssjukhus i Malmö erbjöds deltagande i studien via telefon. Enkäten som användes formulerades främst med frågor från studien i Self-reported measures for Surveillance of Periodontitis (Eke et al. 2013). Frågor om individens tobaksvanor, om den led av andra sjukdomar, och mediciner lades till som en del av denna studie. Insamlad data analyserades med IBM SPSS Statistics 25 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA. Ingen normalfördelning antogsför analyserna. Värdena bearbetades med Mann-Whitney U test och χ2-test. P-värden < 0.05 togs som statistiskt signifikanta. Resultat: Totalt kontaktades 300 individer, varav 65 (21.7%) inkluderades i studien. Av dessa var 42 (64.6 %) individer i kontrollgruppen medans 23 (35.4%) ingick i AAA-gruppen.Bennedbrytning förekom oftare i AAA gruppen (37.9%) jämfört med kontrollgruppen (11.9%) (p=0.010) Slutsats: En svag länk mellan kronisk parodontit och AAA kan föreslås i detta skede, dock behövs fler studier med större kohort och om möjligt en kliniskt verifierad parodontal diagnos för att med säkerthet bekräfta denna potentiella länken

    Vetenskapliga artiklar i Tandläkartidningen -Trender över tid2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning: En av tandläkarens uppdrag är att arbeta enligt kunskap och beprövad erfarenhet. För att uppnå detta mål måste man hålla sig uppdaterad. Syftet med denna studie var att granska de vetenskapliga artiklarna i den svenska odontologiska tidskriften Tandläkartidningen. Det empiriska materialet utgjordes av artiklar i den vetenskapliga sektionen i Tandläkartidningen mellan 2008 till 2017. En sammanställning och kategorisering gjordes av två granskare enligt en utarbetad mall. Dessa artiklar utgjorde grund för analys i syfte att undersöka trender och ämnesmässig spridning, men även en analys av författarna gällande kön och ursprungsland. Även studiedesign av artiklarna kategoriserades. Dessa data sammanställdes i det statistiska verktyget  IBM SPSS Statistics 25. Resultatet visade att oral medicin 12,6%, materialvetenskap och teknologi (9,1%), cariologi (8,2%) parodontologi (7,7%), protetik (6,9%) utgjorde de fem mest publicerade ämnena i tidningen. Artikeltypsfördelning var 61% översiktsartiklar, 14% autoreferat, 10% debattartiklar, 9% vetenskapliga originalartiklar och 6% fallbeskrivningar. Om man delar upp 10-årsperioden i två, dvs 2008-2012 och 2013-2017, visar det sig att det skett en ökning av kvinnliga författare från 40,5% mellan 2008-2012 till 43,5% under perioden 2013-2017. I Sverige har det varit en majoritet av kvinnliga författare i perioden 2015-2017. Sammanfattat går det att konkludera att det finns en viss spridning i odontologiska områden som publiceras i tidningen där vissa områden dominerar över en 10-årsperiod. Oftast är författarna män även om andelen kvinnliga författare ökat över tid. För att skapa en överblick över ämnen som dominerar och för att se tydligare trender gällande artikelförfattarna finns det möjlighet att analysera data under ett längre tidsspann.

    Treatment of temporomandibular joint luxation: a systematic literature review2020Inngår i: Clinical Oral Investigations, ISSN 1432-6981, E-ISSN 1436-3771, Vol. 24, s. 61-70Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effectiveness of surgical and nonsurgical treatment of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) luxation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This systematic literature review searched PubMed, the Cochrane Library, and Web of Science databases to identify randomized controlled trials on TMJ luxation treatment published between the inception of each database and 26 March 2018. RESULTS: Two authors assessed 113 unique abstracts according to the inclusion criteria and read nine articles in full text. Eight articles comprising 338 patients met the inclusion criteria, but none of these evaluated surgical techniques. Three studies including 185 patients concerned acute treatment with manual reduction of luxation while five studies including 153 patients evaluated minimally invasive methods with injection of autologous blood or dextrose prolotherapy for recurrent TMJ luxation. These studies reported that mouth opening after treatment was reduced and that independent of type of injection, recurrences of TMJ luxation were rare in most patients. CONCLUSIONS: In the absence of randomized studies on surgical techniques, autologous blood injection in the superior joint space and pericapsular tissues with intermaxillary fixation seems to be the treatment for recurrent TMJ luxation that at present has the best scientific support. Well-designed studies on surgical techniques with sufficient numbers of patients, long-term follow-ups, and patient experience assessment are needed for selection of the optimal surgical treatment methods. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Autologous blood injection combined with intermaxillary fixation can be recommended for patients with recurrence of TMJ luxation.

    Autoantibodies to full body vascular cell junctions colocalize with MYZAP, ARVCF, desmoplakins I and II and p0071 in endemic pemphigus in Colombia, South America2018Inngår i: International Journal of Dermatology, ISSN 0011-9059, E-ISSN 1365-4632, Vol. 57, nr 3, s. 291-298Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: We previously described a new variant of endemic pemphigus foliaceus in El Bagre, Colombia (El Bagre-EPF). METHODS: Here we aimed to investigate disease autoreactivity to vessels in all body organs/systems. We compared 57 patients and 57 controls from the endemic area, matched by demographics, age, sex, and work activity. We performed immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy, immunoblotting, indirect immune electron microscopy studies, and autometallographic studies. We performed ultrasonography on large patient arteries, investigating for vascular anomalies. In addition, we reviewed autopsies on seven patients who died affected by El Bagre-EPF. We immunoadsorbed any positive vessel immunofluorescence with desmoglein (Dsg1), investigating for new autoantigens. RESULTS: Overall, 57/57 patients affected by El Bagre-EPF displayed autoantibodies to vessels in all the organs/systems of the body via all methods (P < 0.01). The autoreactivity was polyclonal, and the patient's antibodies colocalized with commercial antibodies to desmoplakins I and II, p0071, ARVCF, and MYZAP (all from Progen Biotechnik, Germany; P < 0.01; all present at cell junctions). Immunoadsorption with Dsg1 on positive vessel immunofluorescence showed that the immune response against the vessels was directed against non-Dsg1 antigen(s). Autometallographic studies showed deposits of metals and metalloids in vessel cell junctions and in erythrocytes of 85% of patients (P < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Immune response to these vascular antigens is likely altering endothelial cells and vessel shapes, thus disturbing hemodynamic flow. The flow alterations likely lead to inflammation and may play a role in the atherogenesis often seen in these patients.

    Self-reportance of temporomandibular disorders in adult patients attending general dental practice in Sweden from 2011 to 20132018Inngår i: Acta Odontologica Scandinavica, ISSN 0001-6357, E-ISSN 1502-3850, Vol. 76, nr 7, s. 530-534Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: The study aim was to evaluate the prevalence of self-reported temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and acceptance or nonacceptance of such disorders in adult patients attending all public dental health services in the County of Sormland, Sweden, during a 3-year period, 2011-2013. Methods: Two questions were asked about TMD and the voluntary mouth-opening capacity was measured. The results were registered in a score 0-3. The registration was completed with a question about each patient's acceptance or nonacceptance of their condition. Results: More than 73,000 registrations of the TMD condition were performed in general dental clinics from 2011 to 2013. The mean prevalence of a TMD score of 1-3 was 5% and was consistent over these years. Seventy percent of these patients were women. The peak prevalence of TMD was registered in patients aged 30-45years (38%), and the frequency declined in older age groups. Reduced voluntary mouth-opening capacity (<= 35 mm) was found in less than 2% of the participants. About one-fifth of the patients with a TMD-score of 1-3 did not accept their condition and wanted professional care. The frequency of nonacceptance of the condition increased with the severity of symptom score: 15%, 27%, and 49% for scores 1, 2, and 3, respectively. Conclusions: This study shows that the prevalence of self-reported TMD in adult patients was consistent from 2011 to 2013 and should be considered as a public health issue in Sweden. Patients with more severe TMD pain symptoms wanted care more frequent. The annual clinical calibrations should be continued to achieve an acceptable level of registration.

    Varför byter tandläkare arbetsplats? - en intervjustudie2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Studiens syfte var att ta reda på orsaker till tandläkares arbetsplatsbyten och vad som kan påverka dem att stanna kvar. Material och metod: Studien baseras på nio intervjuer med tandläkare examinerade mellan 2014 och 2018. Intervjuerna spelades in och transkriberades. Det empiriska materialet analyserades och mynnade ut i kategorier och övergripande teman. Resultat: Tandläkarna i studien uttryckte vikten av uppskattning i arbetet. Uppskattning i form av belöning såsom lön och/eller utvecklingsmöjligheter. Beröm och uppmuntran från arbetskamrater samt inflytande i verksamheten nämndes också. Tandläkarna beskrev en arbetssituation där bland annat hög arbetsbelastning begränsade deras utveckling och därmed upplevdes arbetet mindre stimulerande. Trivsel på arbetsplatsen prioriterades också högt. När tandläkarna inte upplevde uppskattning eller kände en tillfredsställelse som vårdgivare samt vid otrivsel på arbetsplatsen tenderade de att byta arbetsplats. Slutsats: Denna studie har visat att avsaknad av uppskattning och osunt arbetsklimat kan orsaka arbetsplatsbyte. Resultatet visade också att då tandläkarna trivdes på sin arbetsplats kunde bristfällig uppskattning frånses. Arbetsklimatet antas snarare fungera som en katalysator och inte en primär orsak till arbetsplatsbyte. Denna studie har kartlagt orsaker till nyexaminerade tandläkares arbetsplatsbyten. Det vore intressant att studera ledningens och chefens syn på rörligheten bland tandläkare, hur de hanterar den och hur arbetar de för att behålla sina anställda.

    Peri-implantitis: risk factors and outcome of reconstructive therapy2021Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is focused on (I) the outcome of reconstructive treatment of peri-implant defects and (II) risk factors for the development of peri-implantitis.

    Background

    An increasing number of individuals have dental implant-supported reconstructions. The long-time survival rate of dental implants is good, but complications do occur. Accumulation of bacteria on oral implants and the development of a pathogenic biofilm at the mucosal margin will result in inflammatory responses diagnosed as peri-implant mucositis(PiM). Furthermore, PiM may progress to peri-implantitis (Pi) involving the implant-supporting bone and potentially result in a severe inflammatory process resulting in alveolar bone destruction and consequently implantloss. Currently, Pi is a common clinical complication following implant therapy.The prevalence of peri-implantitis has been reported to be around 20 %. Susceptibility to infections and a history of periodontitis are considered as important risk indicators for peri-implantitis. It seems logical that a past history of periodontitis is linked to an increased risk of peri-implantitis. It is possible that other patient-associated factors such as a smoking habit, and presence of general diseases may also be linked to a higher risk for developing peri-implantitis.Treatment of peri-implantitis is difficult. Non-surgical treatment modalities may not be sufficient to resolve the inflammatory process to obtain healthy conditions.Surgical treatment of peri-implantitis has commonly been employed in clinical practice to obtain access to the implant surface thereby increasing the possibility to effectively decontaminate the implant surfaces.The effectiveness and long-term outcomes of reconstructive surgical treatments of peri-implantitis has been debated. The scientific evidence suggests that regular supportive care is an essential component in order to maintain and secure long-term results following treatment of peri-implantitis.

    Aims

    1. To assess the short-term efficacy of reconstructive surgical treatmentof peri-implantitis  (Study I).

    2. To analyse risk factors related to the occurrence of peri-implantitis(Study II).

    3. To assess the importance of defect configuration on the healing response after reconstructive surgical therapy of peri-implantitis (Study III).

    4. To assess the long-term efficacy of reconstructive surgical treatmentof peri-implantitis (Study IV).

    MethodsFour studies were designed to fulfil the aims:

    - A single-blinded prospective randomised controlled longitudinal human clinical trial evaluating the clinical and radiographic results of reconstructive surgical treatment of peri-implantitis defects usingeither AB or BDX.

    - A retrospective analysis of individuals with either peri-implantitis, or presenting with either peri-implant health, or peri-implant mucositis assessing the likelihood that peri-implantitis was associated with a history of systemic disease, a history of periodontitis, and smoking.

    - A prospective study evaluating if the alveolar bone defect configuration at dental implants diagnosed with peri-implantitisis related to clinical parameters at the time of surgical intervention and if the short- and long-term outcome of surgical intervention of peri-implantitis is dependent on defect configuration at the time of treatment.

    - A prospective 5-year follow-up of patients treated either with AB or BDX.

    Results

    - The success for both surgical reconstructive procedures was limited. Nevertheless, bovine xenograft provided evidence of more radiographic bone fill than AB. Improvements in PD, BOP, and SUP were observed for both treatment modalities

    -In relation to a diagnosis of peri-implantitis, a high likelihood of comorbidity was expressed in the presence of a history of periodontitis and a medical history of cardiovascular disease

    - The buccal-lingual width of the alveolar bone crest was explanatory to defect configuration

    - 4-wall defects and deeper defects demonstrated more radiographic evidence of defect fill

    - Reconstructive surgical treatment of peri-implant defects may result in successful clinical outcomes, that can be maintained over at least five years

    - The use of BDX is more predictable than use of harvested bone from the patient (AB)

    Conclusions

    The study results suggest that a bovine xenograft provides better radiographic evidence of defect fill than the use of autogenous bone harvested from cortical autologous bone grafts.Treatment with bone grafts to obtain radiographic evidence of defect fill is more predictable at 3- and 4-wall defects than at peri-implantitis bone defects with fewer bone walls.In relation to a diagnosis of peri-implantitis, a high likelihood of comorbidity was found for a history of periodontitis and a history of cardiovascular disease.

    Reconstructive treatment of peri-implant defects- Results after three and five years.2022Inngår i: Clinical Oral Implants Research, ISSN 0905-7161, E-ISSN 1600-0501, Vol. 33, nr 11, s. 1114-1124Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the long-term efficacy of reconstructive treatment of peri-implantitis intraosseous defects.

    MATERIAL AND METHODS: Peri-implant intraosseous defects were augmented using either an autogenous bone graft (AB) or a bovine-derived xenograft (BDX) in combination with a collagen membrane. Maintenance was provided every third month.

    RESULTS: In the AB group, 16 patients with 25 implants remained at year five. In the BDX group, 23 patients with 38 implants remained. Between baseline and year 5, bleeding on probing (BOP) and probing pocket depth (PPD) scores were reduced in both groups (p < .001). In the AB and BDX groups, mean PPD between baseline and year five was reduced by 1.7 and 2.8 mm, respectively. The difference between groups was significant (p < .001). In the AB group, the mean bone level change at implant level between baseline and years three and five was-0,2 and -0.7 mm, respectively. In the BDX group, the mean bone level change at implant level between baseline and years three and five was 1.6 and 1.6 mm, respectively. The difference between the groups was significant (p < .001). Successful treatment (no bone loss, no probing pocket depth (PPD) > 5 mm, no suppuration, maximum one implant surface with bleeding on probing (BOP) at year five) was obtained in 9/25 implants (36%) in the AB group and in 29/37 implants (78.3%) in the BDX group.

    CONCLUSIONS: Reconstructive surgical treatment of peri-implant defects using BDX resulted in more predictable outcomes than using autogenous bone over 5 years.

    Effects of stabilized hypochlorous acid on oral biofilm bacteria2022Inngår i: BMC Oral Health, ISSN 1472-6831, E-ISSN 1472-6831, Vol. 22, nr 1, artikkel-id 415Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Caries and periodontitis are amongst the most prevalent diseases worldwide, leading to pain and loss of oral function for those affected. Prevention relies heavily on mechanical removal of dental plaque biofilms but for populations where this is not achievable, alternative plaque control methods are required. With concerns over undesirable side-effects and potential bacterial resistance due to the use of chlorhexidine gluconate (CHX), new antimicrobial substances for oral use are greatly needed. Here we have investigated the antimicrobial effect of hypochlorous acid (HOCl), stabilized with acetic acid (HAc), on oral biofilms and compared it to that of CHX. Possible adverse effects of stabilized HOCl on hydroxyapatite surfaces were also examined.

    METHODS: Single- and mixed-species biofilms of six common oral bacteria (Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus gordonii, Actinomyces odontolyticus, Veillonella parvula, Parvimonas micra and Porphyromonas gingivalis) within a flow-cell model were exposed to HOCl stabilized with 0.14% or 2% HAc, pH 4.6, as well as HOCl or HAc alone. Biofilm viability was assessed in situ using confocal laser scanning microscopy following LIVE/DEAD® BacLight™ staining. In-situ quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D) was used to study erosion of hydroxyapatite (HA) surfaces by stabilized HOCl.

    RESULTS: Low concentrations of HOCl (5 ppm), stabilized with 0.14% or 2% HAc, significantly reduced viability in multi-species biofilms representing supra- and sub-gingival oral communities, after 5 min, without causing erosion of HA surfaces. No equivalent antimicrobial effect was seen for CHX. Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria showed no significant differential suceptibility to stabilized HOCl.

    CONCLUSIONS: At low concentrations and with exposure times which could be achieved through oral rinsing, HOCl stabilized with HAc had a robust antimicrobial activity on oral biofilms, without causing erosion of HA surfaces or affecting viability of oral keratinocytes. This substance thus appears to offer potential for prevention and/or treatment of oral biofilm-mediated diseases.

    Translation and validation of the English-language instrument Orthognathic Quality of Life Questionair into Swedish2021Inngår i: Acta Odontologica Scandinavica, ISSN 0001-6357, E-ISSN 1502-3850, Vol. 79, nr 1, s. 19-24Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: In orthognathic surgery, understanding the patient’s motives for treatment is a key factor for postoperative patient satisfaction and treatment success. In countries/systems where orthognathic surgery is funded by public means, patients are referred mainly due to functional problems, although studies of quality of life related changes after treatment indicate that psychosocial and aesthetic reasons might be equal or more important for the patient. There is no available validated condition specific instruments in the Swedish language for quality of life evaluation of patients with dentofacial deformities. Aims/objectives: Cross cultural translation and adaptation of the English-language instrument ‘Orthognathic Quality of Life Questionnaire’ (OQLQ) into Swedish. Methods: OQLQ was translated into Swedish. A total of 121 patients in four groups were recruited and the Swedish version of the OQLQ (OQLQ-S) was tested by psychometric methods. Reliability was assessed by internal consistency and test–retest reliability. Validity was evaluated by face, convergent and discriminant validity. Results/findings and conclusions: OQLQ-S is reliable and showed good construct validity and internal consistency and can be used in a Swedish speaking population as a complement to clinical variables to evaluate patients with dentofacial deformity.

    Rotfyllningskvalitet vid endodontiska behandlingar på studentklinik med utgångspunkt från kliniska och röntgenologiska parametrar.2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Att granska hur väl indikatorbilden och rotfyllningsbilden överensstämmer utifrån mätningar med elektronisk apexlokalisator. Dessutom granskas om rotfyllningskvalitet är beroende av tandtyp och antal besök samt om det förekommer någon skillnad på behandlingsproceduren före eller under COVID-19 pandemin. Vidare granskas tecken på läkning i de fall där läkningsbild finns. 

    Material och metod: Totalt har 635 patienter fått endodontisk behandling på studentklinik för endodonti på Malmö Tandvårdshögskola under perioden 2016–2021. Av dessa uppfyllde 350 journaler inklusionskriterierna. Journaldata tillsammans med röntgenbilder granskades av två oberoende observatörer.

    Resultat: Av 350 tänder överensstämde 262 tänders indikatorbild och rotfyllningsbild med EAL-mätningar. Underkäksmolarer till följd av överkäksmolarer och överkäkpresmolarer som hade inadekvat rotfyllningskvalitet. 

    Cirka 70% av tänderna som behandlades färdigt krävde mellan 2–6 besök. Tecken på läkning kunde observeras hos 78 patienter (ca. 92 %) som följts med klinisk undersökning och läkningsbilder. Inga märkbara skillnader noterades i behandlingsproceduren före eller under Covid-19 pandemin.

    Slutsats: Rotfyllningarna uppvisade god kvalitet baserat på kliniskt och röntgenologiskt underlag. Studenterna behöver relativt många besök för att genomföra en endodontisk behandling. Behandlingen resulterar ofta i en rotfyllning som bedöms ha god kvalitet och så många fall läker. Det behövs ges tydligare rekommendationer till studenter gällande bestämning av arbetslängden och information om att EAL är mer pålitlig att fastställa arbetslängd.

    Impact of peri-implant buccal bone thickness, implant fixture diameter, abutment and/or prosthetic reconstruction material on the accuracy of Cone Beam Computed Tomography to assess peri-implant buccal bone level: an in vitro study in pig jaw2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract Aim: To evaluate the impact of peri-implant buccal bone thickness, implant fixture diameter, abutment material (Titanium Ti, Zirconium Zr) and/or prosthetic reconstruction material (metal ceramic vs ceramic) on the accuracy of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) to assess peri-implant buccal bone level. Materials and methods: Titanium implants were inserted into 36 blocks of pig mandible in a way to create variable buccal bone thicknesses groups, each group with 12 blocks; group 1 (0.5-1 mm), group 2 (>1-1.5 mm) and group 3 (>1.5-2 mm), half of each group received a dehiscence which was created of variable extent. Two groups regarding abutment-crown material; (Ti abutment with CoCr crown, Zr abutment with Zr crown) and implant diameter; (standard/narrow) were assessed. Dehiscences were measured on CBCT image using 2 programs (i-Dixel and Photoshop) and were compared to the gold standard. Results: Thin buccal bone thickness group (0.5-1 mm) had major impact on the accuracy of CBCT to correctly detect and measure the extent of a bony dehiscence. No differences were detected between standard or narrow diameter implant and between TiTi/CoCr combination and TiZr/Zr combination in regards to possibility of CBCT to detect and evaluate accurately the extent of a bony dehiscence. Conclusion: Thin peri-implant buccal bone (≤ 1 mm) has a negative effect on the accuracy of CBCT to assess peri-implant buccal bone level. The possibility to identify and to assess the extent of peri-implant buccal bone dehiscence in CBCT was hardly affected by using different abutments and crown materials and different implant diameters.

    The Effects of Periodontal Treatment on Atherosclerosis: A Systematic Review2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of the study was to systematically review the evidence from clinical intervention trials evaluating the effect of periodontal treatment (PT) on surrogate markers on individuals diagnosed with periodontal disease (PD) and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ACVD). The systematic review was based on quantitative literature. Method: A electronic search for relevant articles published between October 2012- October 2022 was carried out in the following databases: PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Web of Science. Results: The systematic search identified 686 articles, after the title and abstract screening 14 articles were read in full-text, 7 articles underwent risk of bias assessment, 1 was excluded due to high risk of bias and 6 articles were ultimately included. The results found that PT led to decreased levels of inflammatory biomarkers and surrogate markers of ACVD, improved periodontal parameters and endothelial function, and reduced levels of periodontopathogens. Conclusion: The findings indicate that PT can potentially benefit atherosclerosis by managing and improving its risk factors. As demonstrated by the small sample size further research is needed to fully determine the effects of PT on atherosclerosis.

    Clinical and self-reported measurements to be included in the core elements of the World Dental Federation's theoretical framework of oral health2021Inngår i: International Dental Journal, ISSN 0020-6539, E-ISSN 1875-595X, Vol. 71, nr 1, s. 53-62Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    INTRODUCTION: Oral health is part of general health, and oral diseases share risk factors with several non-communicable diseases. The World Dental Federation (FDI) has published a theoretical framework illustrating the complex interactions between the core elements of oral health (CEOHs): driving determinants, moderating factors, and general health and well-being. However, the framework does not specify which self-reported or clinical measurements to be included in the CEOHs.

    OBJECTIVES: To explore oral health measurements relevant for a general adult population to be included in the CEOHs in the FDI's theoretical framework of oral health.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: A psychometric study was performed, using cross-sectional data from Sweden (N = 630, 54% women, mean age 49.7 years). The data set initially consisted of 186 self-reported and clinical measurements. To identify suitable measurements, the selection was discussed in different settings, including both experts and patients. Principal component analyses (PCAs) were performed to explore, reduce and evaluate measurements to be included in the three CEOHs. Internal consistency was estimated by Cronbach's Alpha.

    RESULTS: The validation process yielded 13 measurements (four clinical, nine self-reported) in concordance with the CEOHs. PCAs confirmed robust validity regarding the construction, predicting 60.85% of variance, representing psychosocial function (number of measurements = 5), disease and condition status (number of measurements = 4), and physiological function (number of measurements = 4). Cronbach's Alpha indicated good to sufficient internal consistency for each component in the constructs (α = 0.88, 0.68, 0.61, respectively).

    CONCLUSION: In a Swedish general adult population, 13 self-reported and clinical measurements can be relevant to include to operationalise CEOHs in the FDI's theoretical framework.

    Exogenous LL-37 but not homogenates of desquamated oral epithelial cells shows activity against Streptococcus mutans2021Inngår i: Acta Odontologica Scandinavica, ISSN 0001-6357, E-ISSN 1502-3850, Vol. 79, nr 6, s. 466-472Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective:  The antimicrobial peptide hCAP18/LL-37 is detected in desquamated epithelial cells of human whole saliva, but the functional importance of this pool of hCAP18/LL-37 is not understood. Here, we assess the impact of homogenates of desquamated oral epithelial cells and exogenous, synthetic LL-37 on two oral bacteria: S. mutans and S. gordonii.

    Material and methods:  Desquamated epithelial cells of unstimulated whole saliva were isolated and cellular and extracellular levels of hCAP18/LL-37 analyzed by ELISA. Bacterial viability was determined by BacLight Live/Dead staining and confocal laser scanning microscopy.

    Results:  Desquamated oral epithelial cells harboured hCAP18/LL-37, and they spontaneously released/leaked the peptide to their medium. Exogenous, synthetic LL-37 showed cytotoxic activity against S. mutans but not S gordonii, suggesting that LL-37 acts differentially on these two types of oral bacteria. Homogenates of desquamated oral epithelial cells had no effect on S. mutans viability. Treatment with exogenous, synthetic LL-37 (8 and 10 μM) reduced S. mutans viability, whereas lower concentrations (0.1 and 1 µM) of the peptide lacked effect.

    Conclusions:  Desquamated oral epithelial cells contain hCAP18/LL-37, but their cellular levels of hCAP18/LL-37 are too low to affect S. mutans viability, whereas exogenous, synthetic LL-37 has a strong effect on these bacteria.

    Effect of photobiomodulation therapy on painful temporomandibular disorders2021Inngår i: Scientific Reports, E-ISSN 2045-2322, Vol. 11, nr 1, artikkel-id 9049Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    To evaluate the effect of photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) on painful temporomandibular disorders (TMD) patients in a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled manner. Participants were divided into a masseter myalgia group (n = 88) and a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthralgia group (n = 87) according to the Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (DC/TMD). Both groups randomly received PBMT or placebo treatment once a day for 7 consecutive days, one session. The PBMT was applied with a gallium-aluminum-arsenide (GaAlAs) laser (wavelength = 810 nm) at pre-determined points in the masseter muscle (6 J/cm2, 3 regions, 60 s) or TMJ region (6 J/cm2, 5 points, 30 s) according to their most painful site. Pain intensity was rated on a 0–10 numerical rating scale (NRS) and pressure pain thresholds (PPT) and mechanical sensitivity mapping were recorded before and after the treatment on day 1 and day 7. Jaw function was assessed by pain free jaw opening, maximum unassisted jaw opening, maximum assisted jaw opening, maximum protrusion and right and left excursion. Data were analyzed with a mixed model analysis of variance (ANOVA). Pain intensity in arthralgia patients decreased over time (P < 0.001) for both types of interventions, however, PBMT caused greater reduction in pain scores than placebo (P = 0.014). For myalgia patients, pain intensity decreased over time (P < 0.001) but without difference between interventions (P = 0.074). PPTs increased in both myalgia (P < 0.001) and TMJ arthralgia patients over time (P < 0.001) but without difference between interventions (P ≥ 0.614). Overall, PBMT was associated with marginally better improvements in range of motion compared to placebo in both myalgia and arthralgia patients. Pain intensity, sensory function and jaw movements improve after both PBMT and placebo treatments in myalgia and arthralgia patients indicating a substantial non-specific effect of PBMT.

    Assessment of masticatory efficiency based on glucose concentration in orthodontic patients - a methodological study2022Inngår i: Journal of Oral Rehabilitation, E-ISSN 1365-2842, Vol. 49, nr 10, s. 954-960Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    INTRODUCTION: Treatment for malocclusion can cause discomfort and pain in the teeth and periodontium, which may impair masticatory efficiency. The glucose concentration method is widely used to assess masticatory efficiency for its convenience in the clinical situation, although its validity has not been shown.

    OBJECTIVE: The aims were to determine the validity of the glucose concentration method and investigate if this method can be applicable to orthodontic patients with braces.

    DESIGN: Sixteen healthy individuals (7 men, 9 women, and 26±5 years old) and 16 patients with malocclusions needing orthodontic treatment (5 men, 11 women, and 26±4 years old) participated. Glucose concentration was measured after 5-, 10-, and 15-s mastication of gummy jelly and compared to Hue values obtained from the color-changing gum method (reference method). In addition, all participants were asked to fill out the Oral Health Impact Profile questionnaire (OHIP) to assess differences in perception related to the mouth before and after the placement of braces.

    RESULTS: = 0.711, P < 0.001) Masticatory efficiency assessed by both methods was significantly lower in orthodontic patients compared to controls (P<0.05), even though it was not affected by bonding (P>0.09). In addition, OHIP scores in physical pain dimension and psychological disability were higher in orthodontic patients than in the control group (P<0.005).

    CONCLUSION: Measurement of glucose concentration was confirmed as a reliable and convenient method for assessing masticatory efficiency. Furthermore, it appears that this method is applicable to patients with braces whose perception in the oral cavity could change.

    Diabetes Mellitus and Dental Implants: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis2022Inngår i: Materials, ISSN 1996-1944, E-ISSN 1996-1944, Vol. 15, nr 9, artikkel-id 3227Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The present review aimed to evaluate the impact of diabetes mellitus on dental implant failure rates and marginal bone loss (MBL). An electronic search was undertaken in three databases, plus a manual search of journals. Meta-analyses were performed as well as meta-regressions in order to verify how the odds ratio (OR) and MBL were associated with follow-up time. The review included 89 publications. Altogether, there were 5510 and 62,780 implants placed in diabetic and non-diabetic patients, respectively. Pairwise meta-analysis showed that implants in diabetic patients had a higher failure risk in comparison to non-diabetic patients (OR 1.777, p < 0.001). Implant failures were more likely to occur in type 1 diabetes patients than in type 2 (OR 4.477, p = 0.032). The difference in implant failure between the groups was statistically significant in the maxilla but not in the mandible. The MBL mean difference (MD) between the groups was 0.776 mm (p = 0.027), with an estimated increase of 0.032 mm in the MBL MD between groups for every additional month of follow-up (p < 0.001). There was an estimated decrease of 0.007 in OR for every additional month of follow-up (p = 0.048). In conclusion, implants in diabetic patients showed a 77.7% higher risk of failure than in non-diabetic patients.

    Three-Dimensional Prediction in Orthognathic Surgery. Treatment Outcome Evaluated in Clinical Photographs2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Planning for orthognathic surgery was enhanced through the past years and is performed nowadays using two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) planning methods. Aim: This project aimed to compare outcome of these two treatment planning methods according to improvements in clinical photographs of the subjects. Also, to compare the results from photographic evaluation with results on cephalometric accuracy measurements and Health Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) measurements in the same study cohort. Material & Methods: In a randomized controlled trial (RCT) design, a professional evaluation panel judged pre and post-operative photographs of 57 patients underwent orthognathic surgery in either 2D or 3D planning. Results were correlated to findings of cephalometric accuracy and HRQoL for the same cohort. Results: No significant difference between subjects underwent Orthognathic surgery in 2D or 3D planning (p>0.30). No significant correlation with HRQoL was found (p>0.30). A significant correlation between A point and overall facial esthetic was found (p=0.024). Conclusion : There is no esthetical advantage of using 3D planing over 2D planing for orthognathic surgery as judged by a professional evaluation panel.

    Efficacy of Air Polishing in Disinfecting Implant Surfaces. A Laboratory Study Simulating a Surgical Approach2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To examine whether the type of implant surface (turned and moderately rough), type of handpiece (supra- and submucosal), and treatment settings (power and treatment time) influence the effectiveness of decontamination of the implant surface when using an air polishing device, simulated surgical treatment with horizontal and intraosseous (vertical) bone defect models in an in vitro study.

    Materials and Methods: A biofilm simulation was applied to 108 turned and 108 moderately rough implant surfaces. The study included two different models of peri-implant bone defects, horizontal and vertical, each with a corresponding 5 mm peri-implant bone loss. Debridement of the biofilm simulation was performed with an air polishing device using either the supra- or submucosal handpiece with three different treatment settings. The amount of remaining biofilm simulation on the implant surface was automatically quantified on standardised photographs and analysed with 4- and 5-way ANOVA.

    Results: In horizontal bone defect models, the supramucosal handpiece was more effective compared to the submucosal handpiece, yielding low values of residual biofilm simulation mass regardless of treatment settings and implant surface type (i.e., all implants showed <15% residual biofilm simulation), while this was vice versa for vertical bone defect models. A 4-way ANOVA showed a significant difference regarding the effect on the amount of biofilm simulation for the following: bone defect model type (p < 0.001), type of handpiece (p = 0.003), and treatment settings (p < 0.001), but the type of implant surface was not significant. Moreover, a 5-way ANOVA indicated the area on the implant surface (coronal, central, and apical) as a significant factor. However, the area with the most remaining biofilm simulation varied depending on the defect model type and the type of handpiece used.

    Conclusion: During in vitro intraoperative debridement of implants with various peri-implant bone defect models using an air polishing device, the handpiece should be selected based on the type of bone defect model. The supramucosal handpiece appears superior in models with horizontal bone defect, and the submucosal handpiece appears superior in models with vertical bone defect. Furthermore, in the case of a model with a vertical bone defect, a longer treatment time - but not necessarily a higher power - may result in less residual biofilm simulation. Removal of the biofilm simulation is more predictable in the models with horizontal bone defect compared to the models with vertical bone defect.

    Retrospective clinical evaluation of implant-supported zirconia fixed dental prostheses2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACT 

    Purpose

    The aim of the present study was to evaluate the clinical outcomes of implant-supported restorations of zirconia.

     

    Materials and methods

    This retrospective study included all patients rehabilitated with implant-supported fixed prostheses made of zirconia in a dental clinical private practice, based on data from patients’ dental records. Implant/prosthesis failure, marginal bone loss, and technical complications were the outcomes analyzed. Survival analyses were used to evaluate the associations between clinical covariates and the outcomes. Univariate and multiple linear model analyses analyzed the association of the marginal bone level (MBL) between the independent variables.

     

    Results

    Ninety-four patients that received 244 implants supporting 143 fixed prostheses made of zirconia. The implants and the prostheses were followed up for a mean 26 and 20 months, respectively. Only one implant failed, placed in a fresh extraction socket, 27 days after installation. None of the prostheses failed. The most prevalent technical complication was loss/fracture of implant access hole sealing. Restoration chipping occurred in five veneered zirconia restorations, and none in monolithic zirconia prostheses. The cumulative survival rate with regards to restoration chipping was of 92.2% after 4 years. None of the nine independent variables presented a statistically significant hazard ratio (HR) in relation to restoration chipping in the univariate Cox proportional hazard models. Despite the univariate linear models suggesting that some of the independent variables might have an influence on the MBL over time, the results of the multiple linear regression model suggested that none of these predictor variables had a statistically significant influence on MBL.

     

    Conclusions

    Implant-supported zirconia fixed dental prostheses showed a 100% survival rate in this short-term retrospective study. The cumulative survival rate (CSR) for restoration chipping was 92.2% after 4 years, with all the cases occurring in veneered zirconia restorations, although no variable presented a statistically significant HR on this outcome. None of the predictor variables had a statistically significant influence on MBL.

    A Literature Review of buccally impacted permanent maxillary canines- Etiology, Characteristics, and Prevalence2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To conduct a literature review of published studies of buccally impacted maxillary canines, which presents the etiology, characteristics, and prevalence of these teeth. 

     

    Material and method: The search covered three different electronic databases (PubMed, Scopus, and Cochrane Library). The inclusion criteria were studies on maxillary canines ectopia, specifically patients with either a unilateral or bilateral diagnosis of buccally displaced maxillary canines; studies on children and adolescents under 18 years; however, most focus on children aged 9-11 years, and only fulltext articles published in English or Swedish were accepted. In addition, different study designs were included, for example, reviews, retrospective, and biometric studies. Two reviewers independently evaluated selected full-text articles, and any disagreements were resolved by consensus.

    Results: The applied search terms identified 319 articles in the different databases, out of the 319 yielded articles, 163 were excluded as duplicates. The remaining 183 studies were screened in abstract form by all three reviewers. Out of them, only 11 studies on buccally displaced/impacted canines met the inclusion criteria and were prescribed as eligible studies for full-text analysis. There was a wide variation in the objectives of these 11 studies, though all of them included at least one of the studies' investigations requirements: etiology, characteristics, or prevalence. The results from the final analysis were presented in a preset protocol. 

    Conclusion: This literature review disclosed that few studies have investigated and presented buccally impaction of the canines. Additional investigations are warranted.

    Bone antiresorptive or antiangiogenic medication and dental implant treatment in osteoporotic patients: A systematic review2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The overall aim is to (i) analyze the prognosis of dental implant treatment concerning marginal bone loss (MBL) in patients undergoing or have undergone treatment with bone antiresorptive or antiangiogenic medication for osteoporosis (ii) and additional purpose to assess the available scientific literature in the first aim concerning the risk of getting medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) associated with dental implant installation. 

    Material and methods: A systematic literature search was conducted in October 2021 in the following three databases; MEDLINE/PubMed, Cochrane Library and Web of Science. PRISMA 2009 Flow Diagram were used for the selection process, whereas the included studies were evaluated for quality assessment using Newcastle Ottawa Scale (NOS). 

    Results: The search resulted in four included studies considering the eligibility criteria. The studies evaluated MBL in osteoporotic patients undergoing or have undergone oral bisphosphonate (BP) treatment before and/or during implant placement. MRONJ was also assessed in all four articles. 

    Conclusions: The results of this present study do not indicate that patients undergoing or have undergone antiresorptive or antiangiogenic medication for osteoporosis are at an increased risk of MBL in dental implants during follow-up periods. The present data assessing the risk for developing MRONJ remains low for osteoporotic patients. Therefore, dental implant surgery is considered possible with success in osteoporotic patients receiving earlier mentioned medications. However additional studies are required to evaluate the effects on this patient group concerning osseointegration of dental implant regarding MBL.

    Effectiveness of Casein Phosphopeptide- Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (CPP-ACP) in Remineralization of Early Carious Lesions. A systematic review2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract Aim To assess the effectiveness of CPP-ACP in combination with daily fluoride use versus daily fluoride use alone on remineralization of early carious lesions in randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Material and methods A systematic literature search was conducted following the PRISMA 2009 statement. The literature obtained from the searches in electronic databases were reviewed individually by two reviewers and the relevant titles and abstracts were selected with specific inclusion and exclusion criteria. The search was limited to articles published in English. Only randomized controlled clinical trials (RCTs) in which CPP-ACP was delivered by cream form were selected. The included studies were assessed for risk of bias and quality. Results The initial search carried out on PubMed and the Cochrane Library for publications up to January 2018 resulted in 267 scientific articles. Six randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were met the inclusion and exclusion criteria and were selected as eligible studies. Out of six studies in this review, three studies were judged to have a low risk of bias, one study was classified as moderate risk of bias and two studies were high risk of bias. No specific adverse effect related to CPP-ACP usage was observed.  Conclusions Based on the literature, there is a tendency towards the benefits of CPP-ACP usage in addition to fluoride toothpaste and/or mouth rinse compared to fluoride toothpaste and/or mouth rinse alone on regression of early carious lesions. However, further well-designed long term clinical trials are required to establish this therapeutic strategy in the main stream clinical practice.

    The risk of ankylosis of 89 avulsed human teeth stored in saliva prior to replantation - A retrospective clinical follow up study2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet med studien var att utvärdera risken för ankylos för exartikulerade (utslagna) permanenta tänder förvarade i saliv föregångna av olika torrförvaringstider innan replantation. Material och metod: Patientdata med replanterade permanenta tänder som förvarats i saliv före replantation valdes ut från en databas vid Köpenhamns Universitetssjukhus. Parodontal läkning med avseende på ankylos analyserades. Resultat: I studien inkluderades sjuttiofyra patienter (54 pojkar och 20 flickor) med 89 exartikulerade och replanterade tänder som alla hade förvarats i saliv före replantation. Den tid som de exartikulerade tänderna hade förvarats i saliv varierade från 1 minut till 150 minuter, med en genomsnittlig förvaringstid på 35 minuter. Cirka 40 % av de salivförvarade tänderna uppvisade läkning utan ankylos. Torrförvaring 5 minuter eller mindre före förvaring i saliv resulterade i ankylos hos 40% av tänderna men när torrförvaring översteg 5 minuter före förvaring i saliv sågs ankylos hos 80%. Tänder med slutet apex var signifikant mer påverkade av ankylos än tänder med öppet apex. Ankylos ökade med ökad förvaringstid i saliv. Slutsats: Att förvara en tand i saliv innan replantation minskar risken för ankylos jämfört med att förvara tanden torrt. Tänder med öppet apex har bättre prognos än tänder med slutet apex. Tillfällig förvaring av tanden i saliv bör uppmuntras om tanden inte omedelbart kan replanteras eller om ett lämpligt förvaringsmedel som till exempel mjölk eller fysiologisk koksaltlösning inte finns tillgängligt direkt vid olycksplatsen. Nyckelord: ankylos, exartikulerad tand, förvaringsmedium, replantation, saliv.

    The risks of ankylosis of 89 avulsed human teeth stored in saliva prior to replantation-A re-evaluation of a long-term clinical study2021Inngår i: Dental Traumatology, ISSN 1600-4469, E-ISSN 1600-9657, Vol. 37, nr 4, s. 537-545Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background/Aim: The survival of an avulsed tooth highly depends on the emergency management. The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk of ankylosis for avulsed human teeth stored in saliva preceded by various dry storage conditions prior to replantation. Material and methods: Data include 74 patients (54 male and 20 female) with 89 avulsed and replanted teeth (16 immature teeth, 73 mature teeth). Patient ages ranged from 6 to 36 years (median: 13.0 years). All teeth were stored in saliva before replantation. Treatment and follow-up were performed according to a standardized procedure. Follow-up periods ranged from 7 months to 20 years (mean 5.3 years). The risk of ankylosis over time was estimated by the Aalen-Johansen method in relation to the length of dry storage and the stage of root development. The effect of risk factors (root development and length of dry time) on the risk of ankylosis was analysed by Cox regression analysis. Results: For mature teeth, dry storage for 5 min or less before saliva storage resulted in a 47.4% (95% confidence interval (CI): 32.8-60.7) ankylosis rate. When dry storage was >5 min and <20 min, the risk of ankylosis was 76.8% (95% CI: 45.7-91.5). When dry storage exceeded 20 min prior to saliva storage, ankylosis increased to 89.3% (95% CI: 68.0-96.7). Ankylosis also increased with increasing saliva storage time. Specifically, one additional minute of wet time increased the ankylosis hazard rate (HR) by approximately 1% (CI = [0%, 2%], p = .052). Teeth with mature root development were significantly more frequently affected by ankylosis than teeth with immature root development (HR: 2.4 (95% CI: 1.0-5.5), p = .04). Conclusion: Temporary storage in saliva should be encouraged if an avulsed permanent tooth cannot be immediately replanted or a suitable storage medium such as milk or saline is not immediately available at the place of the accident.

    Bone loss around oral and orthopedic implants: An immunologically based condition2019Inngår i: Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research, ISSN 1523-0899, E-ISSN 1708-8208, Vol. 21, nr 4, s. 786-795Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background Marginal bone resorption has by some been identified as a "disease" whereas in reality it generally represents a condition. Purpose The present article is a comparison between oral and orthopedic implants, as previously preferred comparisons between oral implants and teeth seem meaningless. Materials and Methods The article is a narrative review on reasons for marginal bone loss. Results and Conclusions The pathology of an oral implant is as little related to a tooth as is pathology of a hip arthroplasty to a normally functioning, pristine hip joint. Oral as well as orthopedic implants are recognized as foreign bodies by the immune system and bone is formed, either in contact or distance osteogenesis, to shield off the foreign materials from remaining tissues. A mild immune reaction coupled to a chronic state of inflammation around the implant serve to protect implants from bacterial attacks. Having said this, an overreaction of the immune system may lead to clinical problems. Marginal bone loss around oral and orthopedic implants is generally not dependent on disease, but represents an immunologically driven rejection mechanism that, if continuous, will threaten implant survival. The immune system may be activated by various combined patient and clinical factors or, if rarely, by microbes. However, the great majority of cases with marginal bone loss represents a temporary immune overreaction only and will not lead to implant failure due to various defense mechanisms.

    Foreign body reactions, marginal bone loss and allergies in relation to titanium implants2018Inngår i: European Journal of Oral Implantology, ISSN 1756-2406, E-ISSN 1756-2414, Vol. 11, nr Suppl 1, s. S37-S46Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To describe general observations of immunological reactions to foreign materials and to realize that CP titanium gives rise to a foreign body reaction with subsequent bone embedment when placed as oral implants. To analyse the possibility of titanium allergy. Materials and methods: The present paper is of a narrative review type. Hand and Medline searches were performed to evaluate marginal bone loss of oral implants and the potential of titanium allergy. Results: Immunological reactions to foreign substances include Type I hypersensitivity reactions such as allergy, Type II hypersensitivity reactions characterised by IgM or IgG antibodies that may react with blood group antigens at transfusion, and Type III hypersensitivity caused by antigen-antibody immune complexes exemplified by acute serum sickness. There is also Type IV hypersensitivity, or delayed hypersensitivity, which is typically found in drug and foreign body reactions. It proved very difficult to find a universally acceptable definition of reasons for marginal bone loss around oral implants, which lead to most varying figures of so-called peri-implantitis being 1% to 2% in some 10-year follow-up papers to between 28% and 56% of all placed implants in other papers. It was recognised that bone resorption to oral as well as orthopaedic implants may be due to immunological reactions. Today, osseointegration is seen as an immune-modulated inflammatory process where the immune system is locally either up- or downregulated. Titanium implant allergy is a rare condition, if it exists. The authors found only two papers presenting strong evidence of allergy to CP titanium, but with the lack of universally accepted and tested patch tests, the precise diagnosis is difficult. Conclusions: CP titanium acts as a foreign body when placed in live tissues. There may be immunological reasons behind marginal bone loss. Titanium allergy may exist in rare cases, but there is a lack of properly designed and analysed patch tests at present.

    An Imbalance of the Immune System Instead of a Disease Behind Marginal Bone Loss Around Oral Implants: Position Paper2020Inngår i: International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants, ISSN 0882-2786, E-ISSN 1942-4434, Vol. 35, nr 3, s. 495-502Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to present evidence that supports the notion that the primary reason behind marginal bone loss and implant failure is immune-based and that bacterial actions in the great majority of problematic cases are of a secondary nature. Materials and Methods: The paper is written as a narrative review. Results: Evidence is presented that commercially pure titanium is not biologically inert, but instead activates the innate immune system of the body. For its function, the clinical implant is dependent on an immune/inflammatory defense against bacteria. Biologic models such as ligature studies have incorrectly assumed that the primary response causing marginal bone loss is due to bacterial action. In reality, bacterial actions are secondary to an imbalance of the innate immune system caused by the combination of titanium implants and ligatures, ie, nonself. This immunologic imbalance may lead to marginal bone resorption even in the absence of bacteria. Conclusion: Marginal bone loss and imminent oral implant failure cannot be properly analyzed without a clear understanding of immunologically caused tissue responses.

    On inflammation-immunological balance theory-A critical apprehension of disease concepts around implants: Mucositis and marginal bone loss may represent normal conditions and not necessarily a state of disease2019Inngår i: Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research, ISSN 1523-0899, E-ISSN 1708-8208, Vol. 21, nr 1, s. 183-189Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background Oral implants have displayed clinical survival results at the 95%-99% level for over 10 years of follow up. Nevertheless, some clinical researchers see implant disease as a most common phenomenon. Oral implants are regarded to display disease in the form of mucositis or peri-implantitis. One purpose of the present article is to investigate whether a state of disease is necessarily occurring when implants display soft tissue inflammation or partially lose their bony attachment. Another purpose of this article is to analyze the mode of defense for implants that are placed in a bacteria rich environment and to analyze when an obtained steady state between tissue and the foreign materials is disturbed. Materials and Methods The present article is authored as a narrative review contribution. Results Evidence is presented that further documents the fact that implants are but foreign bodies that elicit a foreign body response when placed in bone tissue. The foreign body response is characterized by a bony demarcation of implants in combination with a chronic inflammation in soft tissues. Oral implants survive in the bacteria-rich environments where they are placed due to a dual defense system in form of chronic inflammation coupled to immunological cellular actions. Clear evidence is presented that questions the automatic diagnostics of an oral implant disease based on the finding of so called mucositis that in many instances represents but a normal tissue response to foreign body implants instead of disease. Furthermore, neither is marginal bone loss around implants necessarily indicative of a disease; the challenge to the implant represented by bone resorption may be successfully counteracted by local defense mechanisms and a new tissue-implant steady state may evolve. Similar reactions including chronic inflammation occur in the interface of orthopedic implants that display similarly good long-term results as do oral implants, if mainly evaluated based on revision surgery in orthopedic cases. The most common mode of failure of orthopedic implants is aseptic loosening which has been found coupled to a reactivation of the inflammatory- immune system. Conclusions Implants survive in the body due to balanced defense reactions in form of chronic inflammation and activation of the innate immune system. Ten year results of oral and hip /knee implants are hence in the 90+ percentage region. Clinical problems may occur with bone resorption that in most cases is successfully counterbalanced by the defense/healing systems. However, in certain instances implant failure will ensue characterized by bacterial attacks and/or by reactivation of the immune system that now will act to remove the foreign bodies from the tissues.

    On osseointegration in relation to implant surfaces2019Inngår i: Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research, ISSN 1523-0899, E-ISSN 1708-8208, Vol. 21, nr S1, s. 4-7Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background The understanding of mechanisms of osseointegration as well as applied knowledge about oral implant surfaces are of paramount importance for successful clinical results. Purpose The aim of the present article is to present an overview of osseointegration mechanisms and an introduction to surface innovations with relevance for osseointegration that will be published in the same supplement of Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research. Materials and Methods The present article is a narrative review of some osseointegration and implant surface-related details. Results and Conclusions Osseointegration has a changed definition since it is realized today that oral implants are but foreign bodies and that this fact explains osseointegration as a protection mechanism of the tissues. Given adequate stability, bone tissue is formed around titanium implants to shield them from the tissues. Oral implant surfaces may be characterized by microroughness and nanoroughness, by surface chemical composition and by physical and mechanical parameters. An isotropic, moderately rough implant surface such as seen on the TiUnite device has displayed improved clinical results compared to previously used minimally rough or rough surfaces. However, there is a lack of clinical evidence supporting any particular type of nanoroughness pattern that, at best, is documented with results from animal studies. It is possible, but as yet unproven, that clinical results may be supported by a certain chemical composition of the implant surface. The same can be said with respect to hydrophilicity of implant surfaces; positive animal data may suggest some promise, but there is a lack of clinical evidence that hydrophilic implants result in improved clinical outcome of more hydrophobic surfaces. With respect to mechanical properties, it seems obvious that those must be encompassing the loading of oral implants, but we need more research on the mechanically ideal implant surface from a clinical aspect.

    Spontaneous space closure in patients treated with early extraction of the first permanent molar: a retrospective cohort study using radiographs2024Inngår i: Angle orthodontist, ISSN 0003-3219, E-ISSN 1945-7103, Vol. 94, nr 2, s. 180-186Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: To assess the success rate of spontaneous space closure after extraction of the first permanent molar (FPM) in the maxilla and the mandible, and to identify the factors that make spontaneous space closure most favorable in each.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective records-based cohort study was conducted through a search of the database of the Public Dental Service, Stockholm County Council, Stockholm, for young adults born between 2000 and 2001, who underwent extraction of one or more FPM between 2006 and 2016. A total of 995 extracted teeth were identified, of which 203 teeth in 155 patients met the inclusion criteria.

    RESULTS: Of the 203 extracted teeth, 166 (81.8%) did not receive any orthodontic treatment. The success rate for space closure in orthodontically treated patients was 91.9%. The success rate for spontaneous space closure was 84.3%. All unsuccessful spontaneous space closure in the maxilla occurred in patients older than 12 years. The dental developmental stage of the second permanent molar (SPM) had a statistically significant association with spontaneous space closure in the mandible (P < .001).

    CONCLUSIONS: The success rate of spontaneous space closure was high (84.3%) and was higher in the maxilla (94.1%) than the mandible (74.1%). Age at time of extraction and dental developmental stage of the SPM were significant factors for successful spontaneous space closure in the maxilla and mandible, respectively.

    Metabolites linking periodontal disease and cardiometabolic syndrome2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: Periodontal disease is associated with metabolic syndrome (MS). We investigate if the metabolite profile of MS is associated with periodontal disease. Dimethylguanidino Valeric Acid (DMGV) is a validated biomarker of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and predicts future development of diabetes type 2 up to 12 years before onset. Beta-carotene is obtained from fruits, vegetables and is cardioprotective. We aim to investigate the association between plasma levels of DMGV and beta-carotene in relation to gingival inflammation, periodontal pockets and other additional markers.

    Method: Malmö Offspring Dental Study is the dental arm of The Malmö Offspring Study, which include periodontal registering. Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry was used to measure plasma levels of DMGV and beta-carotene. Multivariable linear regression was utilized to study the plasma levels in relation to periodontal parameters.

    Results: Elevated DMGV levels were associated with increased gingival inflammation measured as %BoP (beta 1.36, p=0.039) adjusting for age, sex, education level, fasting plasma glucose levels, BMI and smoking status. DMGV levels were not associated with periodontal pockets >4mm. Higher beta-carotene levels were associated with less %BoP (beta -3.25, p = <0.001) and fewer periodontal pockets >4 mm (beta -1.15, p = 0.005) in fully adjusted models.

    Conclusion: DMGV is associated with increased gingival inflammation. Beta-carotene is associated with less gingival inflammation and fewer periodontal pockets > 4 mm, concluding that MS and periodontal disease share metabolite biomarker profile in respect to DMGV and beta-carotene. However, findings need to be confirmed in longitudinal cohort studies to allow for general conclusions to be drawn.

    Utvärdering av ytkontamination i behandlingsrum före och efter behandling2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att utvärdera ytkontamination (förorenade ytor) i behandlingsrum före och efter behandling på student- och specialistkliniken i Universitetstandvården Endodonti vid Malmö universitet.

    Material och metod: Provtagning utfördes vid Malmö Universitet, Universitetstandvården Endodonti, före och efter behandling på specialistkliniken och studentkliniken. Följande ytor utvärderades: tangentbord, mus, lamphandtag, behandlarens unit och assistentens unit. Totalt togs prover från 200 ytor. ATP-bioluminescence tillämpades för att utvärdera potentiell kontamination av mikroorganismer vid ett tröskelvärde på 250 RLU/100cm². Fluid thioglycollatemedium (FTM) tillämpades för bakterieodling. 

    Resultat: Tillväxtfrekvensen i behandlingsrummen var högre före behandling i förhållande till efter. Specialistkliniken hade högre tillväxt före behandling i jämförelse med studentkliniken. Efter behandling var tillväxten högre för studentkliniken. Högst frekvens av tillväxt påvisades på tangentbord och mus på båda klinikerna. ATP-bioluminescence visade en sensitivitet på 80 % och specificitet på 31 %. 

    Slutsats: Trots hygienrutiner och preventiva åtgärder som tillämpas förelåg det en svikt i desinfektion av ytor som tangentbord och mus då dessa hade högst frekvens av kontamination. Utifrån studien kan det konstateras att ATP-bioluminescence och FTM kan vara ett hjälpmedel vid kontroll av hygienrutiner. Det krävs fler studier inom tandvården som utvärderar ytkontamination och förekomst av vårdrelaterade infektioner för att uppnå en säkrare vårdmiljö.

    Konsekvenser av COVID-19 på besöksfrekvensen på Odontologiska fakulteten: En registerstudie2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur besöksfrekvensen på Odontologiska fakulteten på Malmö Universitet påverkats under COVID-19 pandemin.

    Material och metod: Registerdata från Odontologiska fakultetens journalsystem T4 analyserades. Samtliga patienter som återfanns i utcheckningslistan och därmed hade besökt Odontologiska fakulteten under perioden januari 2019 till och med december 2021 inkluderades. Fördjupade analyser av tandvårdsbesöken vid avdelningen Oral diagnostik utfördes, där variablerna kön och ålder undersöktes.

    Resultat: Antalet patientbesök på Odontologiska fakulteten var högre 2019 jämfört med 2020 och 2021. Den största minskningen under de tre undersökta åren skedde 2020. Besöksfrekvensen minskade mest för den äldsta åldersgruppen (65+ år) mellan 2019 och 2020, men ökade igen mellan 2020 och 2021. Det var större andel kvinnliga besökare på Oral diagnostik genom alla de undersökta åren.

    Slutsats: COVID-19 pandemin har påverkat besöksfrekvensen på Odontologiska fakulteten. Hur stor påverkan pandemin har haft på den orala hälsan är fortfarande oklart och fortsatta studier behövs.

    On enhancement of bone formation using local drug delivery systems2018Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Despite that many reports have confirmed the long-term clinical success rates associated with implant treatment, implant failure to achieve and maintain osseointegration still occurs in many cases. Local and sustained drug release at the bone-implant interface is one of the strategies that have been suggested to improve the osseointegration. The local drug release could help avoiding the risks usually associated with systemic administration, such as high drug dose or the loss of drug bioavailability. Aims: To map out the most commonly used chemical compounds and drug delivery systems used in animal experiments for implant research (Study I). Furthermore, to develop a new surface coating designed for medical devices and implants, and to examine the drug release mechanism from the coating using near infrared light (NIR) as an external stimulus (Study II). In addition, we examined the release of clarithromycin from PLGA microspheres within beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP), and evaluated their osteogenic effect in a calvaria defect model in vivo (Study III). In Study IV, we evaluated the local release of strontium ranelate (Sr-ranelate) from implant surface coated with mesoporous titania films, and investigated if the local release of Sr-ranelate could improve bone formation around implants in an animal model. Materials and Methods: The articles included in the present thesis consist of four different studies. For Study I, an electronic search was done in three databases (PubMed, Scopus, Embase) to map out the most commonly used methods for local drug and chemical compound delivery to implant sites, and to assess their influence on bone response. Meta-analyses were performed for the outcome of bone-to-implant contact (BIC). In Study II, PNIPAAm-AAm polymers were synthesized at different compositions. The polymers were then incorporated with gold nanorods (GNRs) since these rods at predetermined aspect ratio can absorb NIR light to generate heat within the polymeric layer to initiate a drug release. The volume-phase transition behavior for the polymers was analyzed using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The GNRs-incorporated PNIPAAm was characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D). The release behavior using phenol as drug model was investigated upon NIR irradiation using UV/VIS spectroscopy. In addition, the antibacterial behavior of polymer layers loaded with vancomycin was examined against Staphylococcus epidermidis. In Study III, four bone defects (5 mm of diameter) were created in the calvaria of New Zealand White rabbits (n = 21, n= 7/time point). The defects were randomly designated to four groups. Group 1: no augmentation (sham), Group 2: β-TCP, Group 3: β-TCP with 0.12 mg clarithromycin, and Group 4: β-TCP with 6.12 mg PLGA microspheres loaded with 0.12 mg clarithromycin. After 2, 4, and 12 weeks of healing, bone regeneration was evaluated using micro-computed tomography (µCT) and histology. In Study IV, mini-screw titanium implants were coated with mesoporous TiO2 films using Pluronic (P123) with or without poly propylene glycol (PPG) to create films with two different pore sizes. The implants were then incorporated with Sr-ranelate. SEM evaluation was performed to visualize the mesoporous TiO2 films and determine the pore size. The absorption and release kinetics of Sr-ranelate from mesoporous TiO2 films were evaluated by QCM-D. For the in vivo experiment, mini-screw titanium implants with or without Sr-ranelate were inserted in rats’ tibia bone to evaluate bone formation after 2 and 6 weeks. Results: In the systematic review (Study I), sixty-one studies met the inclusion criteria. Calcium phosphate (CaP), bisphosphonates (BPs), and bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) were the most commonly used chemical compounds. There were two main methods for local drug delivery at the bone-implant interface: (1) directly from an implant surface by coating or immobilizing techniques, and (2) the local application of drugs to the implant site, using carriers. There was a statistically significant increase in BIC for both local drug delivery methods (p= .02 and p < .0001, respectively) when compared to controls. There was a statistically significant increase in BIC when CaP (p= .0001) and BMPs (p= .02) were either coated into implants or delivered to the implant site, in comparison to when drugs were not used. The difference was not significant for the use of BPs (p= .15). In Study II, the DSC analyses showed that PNIPAAm-AAm containing 10% acrylamide had an appropriate phase transition temperature of 42◦C. SEM images showed that the surface coating consisted of a 200 nm thick uniform polymer layer. The QCM-D analysis coupled with in situ NIR irradiation demonstrated a dramatic shift in frequency that was attributed to mass being released from the surface upon irradiation. This mass release correlated well with the drug release profile as determined using UV/VIS spectroscopy with phenol as a model drug. For Study III, clarithromycin release from PLGA microspheres revealed sustained release for around 4 weeks with 50% release during the first week. Histologically, new bone formation was evident at 2 and 4 weeks of healing in all groups and bone formation increased as a function of healing time. At 12 weeks, Group 4 (β-TCP with PLGA microspheres loaded with clarithromycin) showed significantly higher amount of newly formed bone compared to Group 1 (sham). The µCT showed that Group 4 expressed significantly higher bone formation compared to Group 1 at all time points. In Study IV, the SEM images showed TiO2 films with porous structures covering the entire surface with pore sizes determined to be 6 nm for P123 and 7.2 nm for P123-PPG. The QCM-D analysis revealed an absorption of 3300 ng/cm2 of Sr-ranelate on the 7.2 nm TiO2 films, which was about 3 times more than the observed amount on the 6 nm TiO2 films (1200 ng/cm2). The histomorphometric analyses revealed higher percentages of bone implant contact (BIC) and bone area (BA) for implants with Sr-ranelate compared to implants in the control group after 2 and 6 weeks of healing. However, these differences were found not to be significant (BIC with a p-value of 0.43 after 2 weeks and 0.172 after 6 weeks), (BA with a p-value of 0.503 after 2 weeks, and 0.088 after 6 weeks). The mean BIC and BA values within the same group showed significant increase among all groups after comparing 2 and 6 weeks. Conclusions: Most studies assessing local drug/chemical compound release systems in implants evaluated the influence of the use of BPs, CaP, and BMPs on bone healing. The use of local chemical compound delivery systems around implants could significantly improve implant osseointegration in animal models (Study I). In addition, on demand-release of the antibiotic agent vancomycin from the coating induced by NIR light resulted in a clear inhibition zone around a coated substrate in a bacteria culture test, thereby providing proof of concept of the developed drug delivery system (Study II). The in vivo findings showed that β-TCP with clarithromycin-loaded microspheres can enhance bone formation in bone defects (Study III). Meanwhile, the in vivo findings on Sr-ranelate study (Study IV) could not confirm the positive effects of Sr-ranelate on implant incorporation in bone made by other authors.

    Long-Term Survival and Complication Rates of Porcelain Laminate Veneers in Clinical Studies: A Systematic Review2021Inngår i: Journal of Clinical Medicine, E-ISSN 2077-0383, Vol. 10, nr 5, artikkel-id 1074Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The presented study aimed to assess the survival rate of porcelain laminate veneers (PLV) based on a systematic review of the literature. An electronic search was last updated in February 2021. Eligibility criteria included clinical series of patients rehabilitated with PLVs published in the last 25 years, with a minimum follow-up of 3 years. Survival analysis methods were applied. Twenty-five studies were included, with 6500 PLVs. The 10-year estimated cumulative survival rate (CSR) of PLVs was 95.5%. The 10-year CSR of PLVs when fracture, debonding, occurrence of secondary caries, and need of endodontic treatment were considered as isolated reasons for failure were 96.3%, 99.2%, 99.3%, and 99.0%, respectively. PLVs without incisal coverage had a higher failure rate than PLVs with incisal coverage. Non-feldspathic PLVs performed better than feldspathic PLVs. As a conclusion, the 10-year CSR of PLVs was 95.5%, when fracture, debonding, occurrence of secondary caries, and need of endodontic treatment were considered as reasons for restoration failure. Fracture seems to be most common complication of PLVs, followed by debonding, with both more commonly happening within the first years after PLV cementation. PLVs with incisal coverage and non-feldspathic PLVs presented lower failure rates than PLVs without incisal coverage and feldspathic PLVs.

    Effects of the local administration of antibiotics on bone formation on implant surface in animal models: A systematic review and meta-analysis2020Inngår i: Japanese Dental Science Review, ISSN 1882-7616, Vol. 56, nr 1, s. 177-183Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This review aimed to evaluate the effects of the local delivery of antibiotics incorporated in implant surfaces on some quantitative parameters of bone formation. Materials and methods: An electronic search was undertaken in three databases (PubMed, Scopus, Embase) in addition to hand searching. The search was limited to animal experiments using endosseous implants combined with localized antibiotics release. Meta-analyses were performed for the percentages of bone volume (BV) and bone-to-implant contact (BIC). Results: Nine studies met the inclusion criteria. Several methods were identified for local delivery of antibiotics at the bone-implant interface, but the most commonly used method was by coating (incorporating the implant surface with the antibiotic agents). Different antibiotic agents were used, namely bacitracin, doxycycline, enoxacin, gentamicin, minocycline, tobramycin, and vancomycin. There was no statistically significant difference in the percentage of BIC between implants with or without localized antibiotic release (P = 0.59). The meta-analysis revealed higher BV around implants coated with antibiotics compared to control groups (without antibiotics) (P < 0.01). Conclusion: It is suggested that the local administration of antibiotics around implants did not adversely affect the percentage of direct bone contact around implants, with a tendency for a slightly better bone formation around implants when combined with local administration of antibiotics. It is a matter of debate whether these in vivo results will have the same effect in the clinical setting. However, the risk of bias of these studies may, to some extent, question the validity of these results. (C) 2020 The Author.
