The aim of this study was to investigate the caries management by risk assessment (CAMBRA) development process and the latest updated caries risk assessment for the domestic settlement of the CAMBRA program and the activation of dental clinics. A system for CAMBRA was published in California Dental Association (CDA) in 2007. To investigate whether CAMBRA can be successfully implemented outside a university setting, a practice-based research network (PBRN) was created in the San Francisco Bay Area. Based on the CAMBRA-PRAN clinical studies, the caries risk assessment (CRA) tool was updated for patients aged 6 through adults in 2019. The CAMBRA system is expected to be widely and actively used in the dental field in Korea to contribute to oral health care.
Objectives: To determine the usefulness of MiriChekTM Oral Bacter as compared to traditional clinical methods in the periodontal assessment of dogs with and without periodontitis. Methods: In this study, 61 dogs were clinically examined using the MiriChekTM Oral Bacter test kit, and information regarding breed, age (months), sex, weight, presence of disease, and periodontitis stage was recorded. The test used a sample of supragingival plaque from the upper left premolar of the dogs. Results: This study included 30 and 31 dogs with and without periodontitis, respectively.
Periodontitis was more common in older dogs than in younger dogs. The average positive and negative sensitivity rates of the MiriChekTM Oral Bacter test kit were 73.3% and 80.7%, respectively, and were both strongly correlated with the severity of periodontitis. Conclusions: The findings of this study encourage the use of new diagnostic assist test kits, such as MiriChekTM Oral Bacter, for appropriately detecting and diagnosing periodontal disease in dogs.
Objectives: This study aimed to determine the relationship between mental health and oral symptoms in the youths of multicultural families. Methods: Our data source was from an online survey on youth health behaviors, mental health-examined stress, depression, and suicidal ideation, and oral symptoms-examined trauma, pain, and bleeding general characteristics, and the relationship between mental health and oral symptoms was analyzed using complex sample logistic regression. Results: Stress and depression were associated with pain and bleeding, and suicidal ideation was associated with trauma. Conclusions: Oral health plans should be prepared based on the mental health of adolescents from multicultural families.
