JADA July 2020

Background. The incidence of malocclusion is higher among people with osteogenesis imperfect (OI) than the general population, and treatment options are limited due to the weak structure of bones and teeth. Focusing on those malocclusion traits that might have a high impact on a patient’s oral healtherelated quality of life (OHRQoL) is warranted.

The effect of diet drinks on caries among US children (July 2020 Article 2)
Member Price: $5.00
CE Credit(s): 1
Retail Price: $40.00
Course Created on: 06/23/2020
/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=445|75642
Description:

JADA July 2020

Background. The effect of sugared beverages on dental caries has been widely studied in dental literature. A major limitation of these studies was examining the beverages as a single source. To overcome this limitation, a few studies used cluster analysis to group people into similar beverage consumption patterns. These studies did not differentiate between sugared beverages and diet drinks. Therefore the aim of this study is to examine the effect of consuming diet drinks on dental caries among US children by using cluster analysis.

Key Words. Beverage consumption; caries; diet drinks; low-calorie sweeteners.
