Meet our experts at the British Society for Oral and Dental Research (BSODR) Annual Meeting to discuss dental clinical research and in vitro oral care studies
Intertek's dental research, oral care studies and in vitro oral care experts will attend and present at BSODR in Plymouth, UK, September 6-8. Arrange a meeting to discuss the latest developments from the Intertek Clinical Research team for studies on Stain Removal and Tooth Whitening Clinical Studies, Dental Abrasivity Clinical Studies, sensitivity, gingivitis, Oral Malodour Studies, caries and oral tolerance are all regularly performed by our dental clinicians and team of qualified dental assessors.
BSODR Poster Announcement
During the conference, Dr Robert Maclure, Medical Director for Dental Studies, Intertek Clinical Research Services, will present a poster entitled "Magnification Loupes Improve Accuracy of Stain and Plaque Assessments." In this, our experts examined the claim that loupes can improve Fleiss Cohen Kappa (K) scores and Perfect Agreement (PA) in the MGI assessment, with a study conducted to investigate if this improvement would be replicated in plaque and stain assessments with and without loupes.
Magnifying loupes are gaining popularity in dentistry, and in educational settings. The various reasons for this include increased visual acuity, to compensate for age-related loss of near vision and to ensure maintenance of correct posture, to the extent that some assert that operating without loupes creates disadvantages both in regard to attaining visual detail and in accumulative musculo-skeletal issues due to posture.
Our experts have studied the use of magnification loupes, in order to discover if they help improve the accuracy and reliability of assessments.
