Diversity and anti-fungal susceptibility of Norwegian Candida glabrata clinical isolates
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-02-08)
BACKGROUND: Increasing numbers of immunocompromised patients have resulted in greater incidence of invasive fungal infections with high mortality. Candida albicans infections dominate, but during the last decade, Candida glabrata has become the second highest cause of candidemia in the United States and Northern Europe. Reliable and early diagnosis, together with appropriate choice of antifungal ...
Prevalence among adolescents in Bergen, Western Norway, of temporomandibular disorders according to the DC/TMD criteria and examination protocol
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-06-02)
Objective: The aims of this study were to assess the prevalence of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) amongst adolescents and to contrast the prevalence of TMD according to the DC/TMD clinical examination protocol versus the prevalence of TMD pain according to two screening questions. <br>Material and methods: Two hundred and ten adolescents living in the county of Bergen, Norway, were offered an ...
Longitudinal Evidence for Smaller Hippocampus Volume as a Vulnerability Factor for Perceived Stress
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
Hippocampal volume has been found to be smaller in individuals with stress-related disorders, but it remains unclear whether smaller volume is a consequence of stress or rather a vulnerability factor. Here, we examined this issue by relating stress levels to hippocampal volumes in healthy participants examined every 5 years in a longitudinal population-based study. Based on scores of 25- to ...
Methods and background characteristics of the TOHNN study: a population-based study of oral health conditions in northern Norway
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-02-19)
<b>Objectives.</b> The aim of the Tromstannen Oral Health in Northern Norway (TOHNN) study was to investigate oral health and dental-related diseases in an adult population. This article provides an overview of the background of the study and a description of the sample characteristics and methods employed in data collection.<br> <b>Study design. </b>Cross-sectional population-based study ...
Five-minute Apgar score ≤ 5 and molar incisor hypomineralisation (MIH) - a case control study
(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. ...
Long-Term Effect of Erythritol on Dental Caries Development during Childhood: A Posttreatment Survival Analysis
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-12)
Objective: Assess the effect of daily consumption of erythritol, xylitol, and sorbitol candies on caries development in mixed dentition during a three-year intervention and three years after the intervention. Methods: 485 Estonian first and second grade primary school children participated. Children were randomly allocated to an erythritol, xylitol, or sorbitol (control) group. Polyol-containing ...
Capping carious exposures in adults: a randomized controlled trial investigating mineral trioxide aggregate versus calcium hydroxide
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-11-28)
Aim:<br> The aim of this multicentre, parallel-group randomized clinical trial was to compare the effectiveness of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and a conventional calcium hydroxide liner (CH) as direct pulp capping materials in adult molars with carious pulpal exposure.<br> Methodology:<br> Seventy adults aged 18–55 years were randomly allocated to two parallel arms: MTA (White ProRoot, ...
Light-curing units used in dentistry: factors associated with heat development – potential risk for patients
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-10-01)
Objectives:<br>To investigate how heat development in the pulp chamber and coronal surface of natural teeth with and without cusps subjected to irradiance using light-emitting diode (LED)–light-curing units (LCUs) is associated with (i) irradiance, (ii) time, (iii) distance, and (iv) radiant exposure.<br> Materials and methods:<br>Three different LED-LCUs were used. Their irradiance was measured ...
