Analysis On Survival Rate Of Premature And Critically Sick New-Born Babies Admitted At Windhoek Central Hospital (Wch), Namibia

ABSTRACT Introduction: Prematurity is the major cause of neonatal death world-wide, Namibia included. In Namibia, the neonatal mortality has increased dramatically from 19 deaths per 1000 live births in 2000 to 30 deaths per 1000 live birth in 2014. Objectives: To determine the survival rate of premature and critically sick new-born babies and assess the risk factors associated with death of these babies (premature babies – are babies born before 37 weeks of gestation, counting from t...

Assessment of current oral health knowledge attitude and oral hygiene practices among 12-year old school children and patients attending the dental facility at Vezo Hospital

Aim: This pilot study aimed to evaluate oral health knowledge, perceptions and oral hygiene practices among 12- year old children from the local school of Andavadoaka and patients visiting the dental facility at Vezo Hospital, Andavadoaka, Madagascar. Materials and Methods: Data was collected using a questionnaire consisting of 18 close-ended questions. The study population consisted of 12-year old schoolchildren from three sixth-grade classes (total n=70)...

Longevity of conventional GIC versus compomers in primary teeth [October 14, 2018]

Search result: Four clinical studies concerning restorations were found.Clinical outcomes: The results indicate no difference in the success rate between both types of material if high-viscosity GIC was compared against Compomers. [‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over existing clinical evidence but are limited in the number of databases searched, as well as th...

Survival rate of ART restorations with high-viscosity GIC versus conventional RM-GIC [October 13, 2018]

Search result: Only two clinical studies concerning restorations were found.Clinical outcomes: The results indicate no difference in the survival rate after 12 and 24 months. [‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over existing clinical evidence but are limited in the number of databases searched, as well as the assessment of precision and internal validity of resu...

Retention of conventional GIC versus RM-GIC restorations [October 13, 2018]

Search result: There is still a lack of studies to this topic and only two clinical studies concerning restorations were found.Clinical outcomes: The results indicate no difference in the retention rate after 12 and 42 months in Class V and Class II restorations, respectively. [‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over existing clinical evidence but are limited in t...

The current evidence for caries prevention and treatment in xeriostomic patients [October 11, 2018]

Search result: Ten controlled clinical studies relevant to the topic were found.Clinical outcomes: The results indicate:-               GIC/RM-GIC have higher caries-preventive effects than composite/amalgam in cases were no additional fluoride was provided to patients have been shown; -               Topical fluoride is indicated as caries-preventive...

Retention of GIC versus Amalgam as restorations [October 11, 2018]

Search result: There is still a lack of studies to this topic and only two clinical studies concerning restorations in the primary dentition were found.Clinical outcomes: The results of (conventional) high-viscosity GIC indicate no difference to amalgam while, low-viscosity GIC perform significantly worse than amalgam. [‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over ex...

Longevity of resin-modified GIC versus compomers in primary teeth [October 10, 2018]

Search result: Only three clinical studies were found.Clinical outcomes: The results indicate no difference in the longevity between both types of materials. [‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over existing clinical evidence but are limited in the number of databases searched, as well as the assessment of precision and internal validity of results and thus do no...

Cariostatic effect of conventional GIC versus composite resin [October 10, 2018]

Search result: Eight clinical studies to topics concerning orthodontic bonding, root- and tooth restorations were found.Clinical outcomes: The results indicate a higher cariostatic effect of GIC for orthodontic bonding and tooth restorations in permanent teeth. No difference was found for tooth restorations in primary teeth when compared to fluoride containing composite and root restorations.[‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systemati...

Coating of high-viscosity GIC [October 09, 2018]

Search result: Three prospective clinical controlled trials were found.Clinical outcomes: The results indicate that there may be a trend that coating can protect Fuji IX GP Extra against wear.[‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over existing clinical evidence but are limited in the number of databases searched, as well as the assessment of precision and internal va...

Cariostatic effect of conventional GIC versus compomers [October 09, 2018]

Search result: Five clinical trials were found and traced.Clinical outcomes: The results are conflicting or suggest no difference between conventional GIC and Compomers in regard to their anticariogenic effects after 3-4 years.[‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over existing clinical evidence but are limited in the number of databases searched, as well as the...

Cariostatic effect of resin-modified GIC (RM-GIC) versus compomers [October 08, 2018]

Search result: Twelve clinical trials were found and traced.Clinical outcomes: The overall results suggest no difference between RM-GIC and Compomers in regard to their anticariogenic effects.[‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over existing clinical evidence but are limited in the number of databases searched, as well as the assessment of precision and intern...
