Title: A longitudinal study of obesity and dental caries among Hong Kong adolescents

Abstract: Obesity greatly impacts adolescents’ physical and psychological health. Obesity and dental caries are thought to share a common pathogenesis in nutrition, parenting, lifestyle, physical, social environment, as well as psychosocial factors. Studies have been conducted among various countries to investigate the relationship between adiposity and tooth decay. However, most of these studies were performed in a cross-sectional setting and indicated conflicting findings. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between obesity and dental caries among Hong Kong adolescents over time. In this seminar, a systematic review will be presented to highlight the current research status. The methodology of the present study will also be introduced.

Problem-based pain management / Eric S. Hsu … [et al.].

D 616.075 P962 H87

 

Pain management is an essential part of clinical practice for all healthcare providers from trainees, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners through to practicing physicians. Problem-Based Pain Management is a collaboration between experts in anesthesiology, geriatric medicine, neurology, psychiatry and rehabilitation which presents a multidisciplinary management strategy. Over 60 chapters follow a standard, easy-to-read, quick access format on: clinical presentation, signs and symptoms, lab tests, imaging studies, differential diagnosis, pharmacotherapy, non-pharmacologic approach, interventional procedure, follow-up and prognosis.

Saliva : secretion and functions / volume editors, Antoon J.M. Ligtenberg, Enno C.I. Veerman.

D 617.6132 S1 L

 

Health professionals are more and more aware of the importance of saliva for oral health and well-being. As saliva secretion is steadily compromised with advancing age, it becomes a factor of concern in societies with an aging population, especially with a growing number of people who keep their own teeth. The numerous functions of saliva, like antimicrobial activity, lubrication, wound healing and its role in taste experience are only truly recognized when saliva secretion is hampered. In medical diagnostics, saliva shows its value as a safe and economical alternative to blood. This publication provides a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in salivary research by some of the world’s leading experts in the field. Chapters deal with various aspects: anatomy and physiology, e.g. regeneration of salivary glands, saliva functions, e.g. its protective and rheological properties, and diagnostics and disorders, e.g. xerostomia and hypersalivation.
