Dental anxiety, tooth wear among May JADA+ Clinical Scans
May 12, 2017
Patients with anxiety about dental appointments are likely associating treatment with perceived pain, according to an article from Journal of Dental Research featured in the May collection of JADA+ Clinical Scans.
JADA+ Clinical Scans, launched in April, provides an overview of published articles about oral health and an evidence-based assessment of the research done. The May collection features 22 articles on topics such as obesity, regenerative endodontic procedures, dental implants, oral health education and the effects of early orthodontic treatment.
Also featured is a study from the December 2016 issue of Journal of Dentistry on the psychological impact of tooth wear. The researchers found that people with severe tooth wear are likely to experience mental discomfort but no physical disability or a worse oral health quality of life.
