RESUMEN

This study aimed to investigate the impact of COVID-19 on the experiences of special care dentistry providers worldwide. An online survey was administered from 10 to 31 July 2020. Age, sex, years of professional activity, COVID-19 status, geographical area of origin and length of lockdown period were recorded for all participating dentists. The relationships between these variables and the changes in clinical activity, the treated patients' COVID-19 status and the implementation of protective measures in the dental clinic were analyzed. A total of 436 (70.6% women) dentists from 59 countries responded to the survey. Clinical activity was reduced or stopped for 79.1% of respondents. The most common change was to limit treatment to urgent care only (53.7%). Treatment under general anesthesia or deep sedation was discontinued (51.0%) or reduced (35.8%) for the majority of respondents. Male dentists were more likely to maintain their clinical activity than female dentists (p < 0.001), and respondents from North America were more likely to do so than participants from other geographical regions (p < 0.001). Dentists from Latin America and the Caribbean were more likely to report treatment of confirmed cases of COVID-19 than those from Europe (p < 0.001). The implementation of protective measures in the dental office was determined by the survey participant's sex, intensity of clinical activity and geographical area of origin. To conclude, the provision of special care dentistry was considerably reduced in response to the pandemic. Service maintenance was mainly related to the geographical area in which the surveyed dentists worked, further exacerbating pre-existing inequalities.

RESUMEN

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly altered existing health care operations, including dentistry. The fear of SARS-CoV-2 infection and the need for increased protection measures have led to a reduction in the number of appointments and the range of performed procedures. Our study aimed to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic (the pre-vaccine period) on the spectrum of performed dental services, with particular emphasis on the change in the proportion of conservative and surgical procedures. The patient base in the University Center of Dentistry and Specialized Medicine (Poznan, Poland) from two periods-pre-pandemic (1 February 2019-31 January 2020) and pandemic (1 February 2020-31 January 2021)-was analyzed. The number of dental services was standardized against the sum of all procedures in a given month. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of conservative procedures such as commercial restorations or filled canals has significantly decreased, while the number of surgical procedures has increased. The pandemic has undoubtedly affected the spectrum of dental procedures performed, especially in its acute phase. It is very important to return to performing conservative procedures and educating students in the former range while respecting all safety standards.

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: Respirators have received much attention since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to a substantial shortage of the most commonly used respirator, the N95 Filtering Facepiece Respirator (N95), as well as the desire to have added protection while performing aerosol generating procedures (AGPs), dental healthcare personnel (DHCP) have considered alternative respirator options. It is well documented in the medical literature that the Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) provides better protection against respiratory pathogens; however, there are no reported cases that describe the use of PAPRs in the dental setting. This survey report evaluates the use of a loose-fitting full facepiece PAPR by different dental providers. OBJECTIVE: To determine if a PAPR can be used in the dental setting and identify any potential barriers to use. METHODS: Eleven DHCP representing general dentistry, dental hygiene, pediatric dentistry, endodontics, orthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery and maxillofacial prosthodontics at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) and Naval Postgraduate Dental School (NPDS) were asked to wear the MAXAIR PAPR while performing an AGP. They then completed a 14-question survey. RESULTS: There was a 100% response rate. All DHCP with the exception of the endodontist were able to successfully wear the MAXAIR PAPR for the duration of their procedure. All DHCP reported that the PAPR was more comfortable than expected. There were no reports of fogging or hindrance to visibility, breathing was unaffected or enhanced, and the noise level was tolerable. Average time to don and doff the PAPR was 5 minutes. All DHCP were able to wear loupes; some were not able to wear a headlight. Two DHCP reported a history of mild claustrophobia, and both were able to tolerate the PAPR without any issue. 44% preferred the PAPR over the N95. CONCLUSION: This preliminary survey of a loose-fitting PAPR in the dental setting suggests there is a place for PAPRs in the dental community.

RESUMEN

The historic outbreak of the novel coronavirus (SARS CoV-2) sent concern and even panic around the world due to the unknown nature of this disease. As a result, the US implemented a whole-of government approach to tackle the outbreak of this deadly virus. The national and global impact of an uncontrolled COVID-19 outbreak, threatens the US healthcare system and our way of life with potential to cause riveting economic and national security instability. As a result of the health impact on American society, the US military must also take precaution to preserve and defend our nation's fighting force. This charge has created a unique opportunity for military medicine to take the lead at the front line to combat this biologic viral threat.

RESUMEN

Interprofessional education within a team is a concept that is readily occurring within clinical dental practice, however, the theoretical underpinnings are rarely understood. Now more than ever, dental healthcare professionals are required to deliver holistic care planning for patients working collaboratively and synchronously with other healthcare professionals. This paper highlights the importance of understanding other team members' ethics, values and beliefs as well as their remit to effectively communicate and collaborate to elevate a positive experience for both the patient and the clinician.

RESUMEN

Instagram, a photo and video social networking site, is gaining popularity in the dental world and it is easy to see why this is so. Instagram's potential to share information in an engaging way allows dental professionals to share clinical work and provides a unique way of learning.Advertising on Instagram has blossomed. Some of this is for self-promotional reasons, for practice building, or for marketing of new techniques and products by manufacturers. One ought to be cautious about the implications of some patients' quest for 'dental perfection'. That is especially the case when destructive dentistry is being undertaken by dentists trying to replicate what they have seen on Instagram in potentially much more challenging patients. Some of those demanding patients request very ambitious treatments with sometimes hugely unrealistic expectations. Arguably, Instagram could be the new major trend in dentistry.

RESUMEN

Infective endocarditis (IE) is an inflammatory process caused by the implantation of bacteria on the heart valves or wall insertion. Bacteria leading to IE may be caused by oral procedures, such as tooth extractions, periodontal treatments, root canal treatment, scaling and tooth implantation. Antibiotic prophylaxis should only be used in accordance with the recommendations in the high-risk group of IEs, by providing the appropriate antibiotic 30-60 min. Before the planned dental treatment. In addition to appropriate antibiotic prophylaxis, special emphasis should be placed on improving dental care, regular check-ups and planned dental treatment as well as on maintaining proper oral hygiene.

RESUMEN

The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is an ongoing global health crisis with unmatched outcomes and effects. This pandemic has caused an infodemic of article publication in scientific journals. Dental journals have been active in the publication of COVID-19 related articles from the beginning of the pandemic. In this cross-sectional survey, we present an analysis of the scientific output of dental journals on COVID-19. The PubMed COVID-19 database was searched with the "Dental Journals" filter. Data including journal name, country, month of publication and number of citations were recorded. Science mapping analysis of the most used keywords was also performed. The search retrieved a total of 659 articles, of which 28 were excluded. Oral Diseases has published the most COVID-19 articles (15.1%), followed by the British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (8.6%) and the Journal of Dental Education (7.9%). Most of the articles were from researchers from the United States (168), United Kingdom (120) and Brazil (83). The number of citations of the published articles ranged from 0 to 406, with most articles (64.2%) having no citations. Science Mapping analysis revealed that the most used keywords were coronavirus infections, pandemics and humans. The dental community has been active in the publication of COVID-19 articles from the beginning of the pandemic. The papers published by dental journals explore issues such as the management of clinical practices during the outbreak, infection control in the dental setting, signs and symptoms of COVID-19 affecting the oral cavity, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on educational and clinical programs.

RESUMEN

Local anesthetics are widely utilized in dentistry, cosmetology, and medicine. Local anesthesia is essential to providing a pain-free experience during dental and local surgeries as well as cosmetic procedures. However, the injection itself may produce discomfort and be a source of aversion. A novel approach toward the taste modulation of local anesthetics is proposed, in which the anesthetics of the "-caine" family serve as cations and are coupled with anionic sweeteners such as saccharinate and acesulfamate. Ionic conjugates of vasoconstrictor epinephrine such as epinephrine saccharinate and epinephrine acesulfamate have also been synthesized. Novel ionic conjugates were developed using anion exchange techniques. Reported compounds are sweet-tasting and are safe to use both topically and as injections.

RESUMEN

The COVID-19 pandemic forced dental professionals to cope with an unexpected challenge and caused an abrupt cessation of conventional care practices. The high degree of contagiousness as well as the diffusion of the virus through the air and droplets via respiratory transmission placed dental professionals at top-level risk of contracting and spreading the disease. General recommendations were announced in different countries, including patient distancing, air ventilation, surface and instrument sanitization, and the wearing of suitable masks and shields. However, many dental treatments are performed using lasers, and some specific precautions must be added to conventional procedures to ensure the advantages of this technology to patients because of the particular tissue­matter interaction effects of laser wavelengths. Based on the literature, the authors evaluated all of using laser wavelengths to analyze the risk and the benefits of using lasers in daily dental practice, and to provide safety recommendations during pandemic. An unrestricted search of indexed databases was performed. Laser use effects were categorized into: 1) explosive processes that produce tissue ablation and aerosol formation; 2) thermal actions that create vaporization and smoke plume; 3) photobiomodulation of the cells; and 4) enhanced chemical activity. Knowledge of the device functions and choice of adequate parameters will reduce aerosol and plume formation, and the application of suction systems with high flow volume and good filtration close to the surgical site will avoid virus dissemination during laser use. In the categories that involve low energy, the beneficial effects of lasers are available and sometimes preferable during this pandemic because only conventional precautions are required. Lasers maintain the potential to add benefits to dental practice even in the COVID-19 era, but it is necessary to know how lasers work to utilize these advantages. The great potential of laser light, with undiscovered limits, may provide a different path to face the severe health challenges of this pandemic.

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: Nonopioids provide sufficient analgesia with less risk after most dental procedures, but opioid prescriptions are still common. This study analyzed opioid prescribing characteristics on the basis of patient demographics and procedure types. METHODS: The authors conducted a secondary analysis of an existing data set of opioid prescriptions issued from 2013 through 2018 from a college of dentistry in central Appalachia. Opioid prescriptions for young children or liquids were excluded. The authors analyzed prescriptions according to patient age group and sedation level required for surgical procedures. RESULTS: Of 12,464 opioid prescriptions analyzed, 70% were written after extractions or surgical procedures. More than one-half (57.3%) were written for patients younger than 45 years. Adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients received prescriptions of higher quantities (mean [standard deviation], 20.9 [6.4] pills; 95% confidence interval, 20.6 to 21.1) and of longer durations (mean [standard deviation], 3.3 [1.5] days; 95% confidence interval, 3.2 to 3.4) than other groups (P < .001; 1-way analysis of variance). CONCLUSIONS: AYA patients received more opioids than older patients after dental procedures, which is concerning given the high risk associated with AYA opioid exposure. Faculty in colleges of dentistry should educate students and residents on the risks and benefits of opioid therapy as well as alternative analgesics and via exemplifying appropriate prescribing behavior. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: AYA patients represent a seemingly unidentified high-risk age group for dentists. Dentists who perform invasive procedures must examine carefully opioid prescription necessity and prescribe in a manner consistent with best practices.

RESUMEN

THE AIM OF THE STUDY: Was to analyze financial feasibility of obligatory medical insurance programs in dentistry based on the cost of relative unit of labor intensity. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study is based on statistical analysis of service types and costs dynamics in dental obligatory medical insurance programs in Russia in 2013-2018. RESULTS: The study identified trends in financing health care, government guarantee programs and financial costs per 1 unit of labor intensity, which should be taken into account when making a medical and economic feasibility study of basic and territorial government guarantee programs to provide citizens of the Russian Federation with free medical care and planning the dental section of the compulsory medical insurance program. CONCLUSION: The financial possibilities of implementing the compulsory medical insurance program in the field of dentistry in the Russian Federation are limited by reducing the cost of dental services from the total amount of healthcare financing, not proportional to the increase in inflation and the level of expenses for the compulsory medical insurance program, aggravation of the pathology of patients and untimely treatment for dental services. The provision of planned dental services and preventive measures will reduce the financial costs of these services.

RESUMEN

Dental turbines and scalers, used every day in dental operatories, feature built-in water spray that generates considerable amounts of water aerosol. The problem is that it is not exactly known how much. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, several aerosol safety recommendations have been issued-based on little empirical evidence, as almost no data are available on the exact aerosol concentrations generated during dental treatment. Similarly, little is known about the differences in the efficacy of different commercially available aerosol control systems to reduce in-treatment aerosol load. In this in vitro study, we used spectrometry to explore these questions. The time-dependent effect of conventional airing on aerosol concentrations was also studied. Everyday patient treatment situations were modeled. The test setups were defined by the applied instrument and its spray direction (high-speed turbine with direct/indirect airspray or ultrasonic scaler with indirect airspray) and the applied aerosol control system (the conventional high-volume evacuator or a lately introduced aerosol exhaustor). Two parameters were analyzed: total number concentration in the entire measurement range of the spectrometer and total number concentration within the 60 to 384 nm range. The results suggest that instrument type and spray direction significantly influence the resulting aerosol concentrations. Aerosol generation by the ultrasonic scaler is easily controlled. As for the high-speed turbine, the efficiency of control might depend on how exactly the instrument is used during a treatment. The results suggest that scenarios where the airspray is frequently directed toward the air of the operatory are the most difficult to control. The tested control systems did not differ in their efficiency, but the study could not provide conclusive results in this respect. With conventional airing through windows with a standard fan, a safety airing period of at least 15 minutes between treatments is recommended.

RESUMEN

The aim of the present study was to gain a better understanding of the significance, use and prevalence of digital as well as analog learning and teaching aids within dentistry studies at the University Center of Dental Medicine Basel (UZB) regarding sociodemographic aspects. A questionnaire was distributed among the three upper years of dental students at the UZB in the autumn semester before the corona pandemic. The results showed that all students use digital devices. The most often used devices in connection with academic studies were portable devices such as laptops or smartphones. It is to mention that students younger than 25 years used smartphones more often as learning aids than their older classmates. The devices were used on average 57 % of the total daily use time for study purposes, whereas private usage time decreased with age and progression of studies. In order to acquire theoretical knowledge, analog and digital formats were equally important. Digital learning aids were mainly used as digitalized lecture notes or for internet research. Advantages were especially seen in timesaving and organizational aspects. The analog learning aids were appreciated for their better learning and less tiring effect. The high prevalence and usage of mobile internet connectable devices as well as the high availability of the internet may indicate a tendency toward mobile learning.

RESUMEN

Currently, SARS-CoV-2 is the primary pathogen worldwide, disrupting most of our everyday activities. The study aim was to evaluate its impact on the Polish dental community, standards of care, health, and welfare. METHODS: A Google Forms survey was conducted among 303 dental practitioners. RESULTS: Of respondents, 54.93% curbed the number of patients in the last six months, 34.21% declared no changes, and 10.86% reported an increase; whereas 70.7% of the respondents reported a treatment price increase within the same period (27.96% and 1.32% reported no changes and a decrease, respectively). Of the respondents, 15.5% did not close their businesses during the first wave of the pandemic. Most declared 1 or 2 month break, 30.7% and 34.7%, respectively. Some reported 3, 4, or 5 month breaks (15.84%, 1.32%, and 0.99%, respectively), and only two respondents (0.66%) did not admit patients at all. Headache episodes were more frequent among female dentists before the pandemic; after the pandemic, headache frequency increased among both sexes. Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) were more frequent among women (p = 0.017). CONCLUSIONS: Most Polish dentists followed SARS-CoV-2 recommendations and restricted their practices to admitting only patients with pain or incomplete treatment. Decreased sleep parameters, head, back, and neck pain, were observed. This situation may affect dental health conditions in Polish society over time.

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have highlighted the increased risk of contracting the COVID-19 for health-care workers and suggest that oral health-care workers may carry the greatest risk. Considering the transmission route of the SARS-CoV-2 infection, a similar increased risk can be hypothesized for other respiratory infections. However, no study has specifically assessed the risk of contracting COVID-19 within the dental profession. METHODS: An online survey was conducted within a population of French dental professionals between April 1 and April 29, 2020. Univariable and multivariable logistic regression analyses were performed to explore risk indicators associated with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 and COVID-19-related clinical phenotypes (i.e. phenotypes present in 15% or more of SARS-CoV-2-positive cases). RESULTS: 4172 dentists and 1868 dental assistants responded to the survey, representing approximately 10% of French oral health-care workers. The prevalence of laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 was 1.9% for dentists and 0.8% for dental assistants. Higher prevalence was found for COVID-19-related clinical phenotypes both in dentists (15.0%) and dental assistants (11.8%). Chronic kidney disease and obesity were associated with increased odds of laboratory-confirmed COVID-19, whereas working in a practice limited to endodontics was associated with decreased odds. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, use of public transportation and having a practice limited to periodontology were associated with increased odds of presenting a COVID-19-related clinical phenotype. Moreover, changes in work rhythm or clinical practice were associated with decreased odds of both outcomes. CONCLUSIONS: Although oral health-care professionals were surprisingly not at higher risk of COVID-19 than the general population, specific risk indicators could exist, notably among high aerosol-generating dental subspecialties such as periodontology. Considering the similarities between COVID-19-related clinical phenotypes other viral respiratory infections, lessons can be learned from the COVID-19 pandemic regarding the usefulness of equipping and protecting oral health-care workers, notably during seasonal viral outbreaks, to limit infection spread. IMPACT: Results from this study may provide important insights for relevant health authorities regarding the overall infection status of oral health-care workers in the current pandemic and draw attention to particular at-risk groups, as illustrated in the present study. Protecting oral health-care workers could be an interesting public health strategy to prevent the resurgence of COVID-19 and/or the emergence of new pandemics.

RESUMEN

A new coronavirus (Sars-CoV-2) was detected in China at the end of 2019 and has since caused a worldwide pandemic. This virus is responsible for an acute respiratory syndrome (COVID-19), distinguished by a potentially lethal interstitial bilateral pneumonia. Because Sars-CoV-2 is highly infective through airborne contamination, the high infection risk in the dental environment is a serious problem for both professional practitioners and patients. This literature overview provides a description of the clinical aspects of COVID-19 and its transmission, while supplying valuable information regarding protection and prevention measures.
