The aim was to investigate differences in dental anxiety levels between dental students, psychology students, and biology students at a Norwegian university.
    • Determination of copy number and circularization ratio of Tn916-Tn1545 family of conjugative transposons in oral streptococci by droplet digital PCR 

      Lunde, Tracy Munthali; Al-Haroni, Mohammed; Roberts, Adam P. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-06)
      <p><I>Background</I>: Tn916 and Tn1545 are paradigms of a large family of related, broad host range, conjugative transposons that are widely distributed in bacteria and contribute to the spread of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs). Variation in the copy number (CN) of Tn916-Tn1545 elements and the circularization ratio (CR) may play an important role in propagation of ARGs carried by these ...

    • Effects of the Conceptual Model of Health Literacy as a Risk: A Randomised Controlled Trial in a Clinical Dental Context 

      Stein, Linda Maria; Bergdahl, Maud; Pettersen, Kjell Sverre; Bergdahl, Jan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-01)
      Numerous conceptual models of health literacy have been proposed in the literature, but very few have been empirically validated in clinical contexts. The aim of this study was to test the effects of the conceptual model of health literacy as a risk in a clinical dental context. A convenience sample of 133 Norwegian-speaking adults was recruited. Participants were randomly allocated to an intervention ...

    • Five-minute Apgar score ≤ 5 and molar incisor hypomineralisation (MIH) - a case control study 

      Sidaly, Rivan; Schmalfuss, Andreas Jørn; Skaare, Anne B; Sehic, Amer; Stiris, Tom; Espelid, Ivar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-22)
      Background: The aetiology of molar incisor hypomineralisation (MIH) is unclear. The asymmetric distribution of MIH in the dentition may indicate that an insult of short duration that affects ameloblasts at a vulnerable stage could be a causative factor. Apgar ≤ 5 at 5 min may indicate asphyxia (hypoxic-ischemic insult) during birth. It was hypnotised that low Apgar score during birth may cause MIH. ...
