August 23, 2013 Dental patients may ask about a new University of Texas-Houston study 1 that is reportedly the first to identify poor oral health as an independent risk factor for oral human papillomavirus HPV infection, which is associated with a variety of oral lesions and a subset of oral and oropharyngeal cancers. The study looked at data from over 3,400 adults who participated in the 2009-2010 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey NHANES, and who also had data available on oral health measures and oral HPV infection. Using this NHANES dataset, the researchers found a higher prevalence of oral HPV infection among individuals with poor oral health, including a significantly elevated risk of oral HPV in adults with self-reports of poor-to-fair oral health or possible gum disease. Given HPV s proclivity to infect epithelial basal cells in the oral cavity and other mucosal surfaces, it i...

Surgeon General Richard Carmona released the report at the 2003 National Oral Health Conference in Milwaukee. Oral and pharyngeal cancers, which are primarily diagnosed in the elderly, are diagnosed in about 30,000 Americans annually and 8,000 die from this disease each year. If current trends persist, millions of Americans will needlessly lose teeth, endure pain, and develop oral infections that can contribute to worsened chronic diseases, compromising their overall health and well being.

Risks to oral health and intervention. Play Store. Oral health. Oral health home. Risks to oral health and intervention. Fluorides. Research has shown that fluoride is most effective in dental caries prevention when a low level of fluoride is constantly maintained in the oral cavity. Fluorides can be obtained from fluoridated drinking-water, salt, milk, mouthrinse or toothpaste as well as professionally applied fluorides, or from combinations of fluoridated toothpaste with either of the other two fluoride sources. Experience has shown that it may not be possible to achieve effective fluoride-based caries prevention without some degree of dental fluorosis, regardless of which methods are chosen to maintain a low level of fluoride in the mouth. Meanwhile, populations in many developing countries do not have access to fluorides for prevention of dental caries for practical or economic reasons. 846 on "Fluorides and oral health" 1994 the recommendation on use of fluoridated toothpastes reads as follows:.

Researchers have found evidence that the amount of bacteria in subgingival plaques, the deep plaques in periodontal pockets and around the teeth, may con- tribute to an individual s risk of a heart attack, according to two studies appearing in the Journal of Periodontology. These studies further researchers' understanding that periodontal bacteria may increase the risk for heart disease. In one study researchers looked at 150 individuals with perio- dontal diseases and found that the total number of periodontal bacteria in subgingival plaques was higher in individuals that have suffered from an acute myocardial infarction heart attack. Researchers believe that these findings may help substantiate what they have long known; if there is a sterile pathway, such as a bloodstream, near a periodontally infected area that the bacteria from this infected area cause inflammation in the gums that opens up pores in the surrounding blood vessels, which enables the bacteria to enter the bloodstream and travel to othe...

Reasons why oral health is important to individuals living with HIV:. Common Oral Manifestations There are several oral manifestations associated with HIV. An important part of proper dental health care for individuals living with HIV is to be able to differentiate one manifestation from another, as well as practicing proper dental hygiene as a preventative measure to promote a healthy mouth. Promoting Good Oral Health After understanding potential oral manifestations it is essential to learn the general guidelines promoted by the American Dental Association as a preventative measure associated with good oral health. Brushing your teeth Good brushing should take a minimum of two minutes and should involve brushing in a circular motion, working your way from one side of the mouth to the another, keeping in mind to pay attention to certain neglected areas such as the very back ...

Project: Oral Health for Juvenile Diabetics. Addressing the oral health needs of type I diabetics in the Philippines since 1998. Note: This does not include hospitalization which may occur during times when the blood sugar is high. Welcome to the Homepage of Project: Oral Health for Juvenile Diabetics The treatment of diabetes has always centered on the control of blood sugar through medication and appropriate nutritional intake. Preventing oral infection, as an adjunct in controlling blood sugar, has been given little attention. Its significance in a population with a high prevalence of tooth decay and gum disease, such as the Philippines, may be underestimated. The cost of managing diabetes imposes a heavy burden on families with children affected by the disease. Type I diabetes, or diabetes that usually affects the young, requires daily doses of insulin. Because the amount of insulin required by the body is not constant, a glucose meter a home monitoring device used to measure sugar in the blood is necessa...

(1/808) Relationship between oral health and nutrition in very old people.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the relationship between oral health status and nutritional deficiency. DESIGN: Cross-sectional clinical study. SUBJECTS: 324 institutionalized frail older adults (mean age 85). MEASUREMENTS: Structured oral examination including an evaluation of mucosa, periodontal state, caries prevalence and denture quality. The nutritional status was assessed using serum albumin concentration and the body mass index. Physical dependence was assessed using the Barthel index. To identify oral health disorders associated with markers of malnutrition we performed the Pearson chi2 test separately for edentulous and dentate patients. Subjects with at least one of the identified oral disorders were classified as having compromised oral functional status. RESULTS: About two-thirds of the subjects were functionally dependent and half had either a body mass index <21 kg/m2 or serum albumin <33 g/l. Among the edentulous, wearing dentures with defective bases or not wearing dentures at all were the factors most associated with malnutrition. In dentate subjects, corresponding identifiers were the number of occluding pairs of teeth (five or fewer, either natural or prosthetic), the number of retained roots (four or more), and the presence of mobile teeth. According to these criteria, 31% of the subjects had a compromised oral functional status. This was more frequently found in dependent subjects (37%) than semi-dependent subjects (18%; odds ratio, 2.6; 95% confidence interval, 1.4-4.8). Those with compromised oral functional status had a significantly lower body mass index and serum albumin concentration. CONCLUSION: Specific detrimental oral conditions are associated with nutritional deficiency in very old people.  (+info)

(2/808) An exploration of oral health beliefs and attitudes of Chinese in West Yorkshire: a qualitative investigation.

This qualitative study explores oral health beliefs and attitudes among Chinese resident in West Yorkshire using six focus groups differentiated by age and gender. Focus group discussions took place in community settings led by trained Chinese facilitators. All groups believed that they were susceptible to dental disease, and that bleeding gums and total tooth loss were 'normal'; apart from the elderly, tooth loss was seen as undesirable. The elderly and adult groups believed in traditional remedies and claimed that preventive oral health measures were ineffective. These groups lacked faith in dentists, and for them cost, language difficulties and lack of awareness were the main reported barriers to accessing dental services. Traditional Chinese oral health beliefs remain influential for the elderly and adult UK Chinese. In contrast, teenagers thought that toothbrushing and sugar restriction would help to prevent dental diseases. The appropriateness of the focus group and interview methods for exploring oral health beliefs for the Chinese are discussed, as are implications of the reported intergenerational differences for oral health promotion strategy in the UK.  (+info)

(3/808) Anticipatory guidance in infant oral health: rationale and recommendations.

If appropriate measures are applied early enough, it may be possible to totally prevent oral disease. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that infants be scheduled for an initial oral evaluation within six months of the eruption of the first primary tooth but by no later than 12 months of age. The rationale for this recommendation is provided, although the recommendation itself is not universally accepted. Specific recommendations include elimination of bottles in bed, early use of soft-bristled toothbrushes (with parental supervision) and limitation of high-carbohydrate food intake after teeth have been brushed.  (+info)

(4/808) The impact of molecular genetics on oral health paradigms.

As a result of our increased understanding of the human genome, and the functional interrelationships of gene products with each other and with the environment, it is becoming increasingly evident that many human diseases are influenced by heritable alterations in the structure or function of genes. Significant advances in research methods and newly emerging partnerships between private and public sector interests are creating new possibilities for utilization of genetic information for the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. The availability and application of genetic information to the understanding of normal and abnormal human growth and development are fundamentally changing the way we approach the study of human diseases. As a result, the issues and principles of medical genetics are coming to bear across all disciplines of health care. In this review, we discuss some of the potential applications of human molecular genetics for the diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases. This discussion is presented in the context of the ongoing technological advances and conceptual changes that are occurring in the field of medical genetics. To realize the promise of this new molecular genetics, we must be prepared to foresee the possibilities and to incorporate these newly emergent technologies into the evolving discipline of dentistry. By using examples of human conditions, we illustrate the broad application of this emerging technology to the study of simple as well as complex genetic diseases. Throughout this paper, we will use the following terminology: Penetrance--In a population, defined as the proportion of individuals possessing a disease-causing genotype who express the disease phenotype. When this proportion is less than 100%, the disease is said to have reduced or incomplete penetrance. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)--A technique for amplifying a large number of copies of a specific DNA sequence flanked by two oligonucleotide primers. The DNA is alternately heated and cooled in the presence of DNA polymerase and free nucleotides, so that the specified DNA segment is denatured, hybridized with primers, and extended by DNA polymerase. MIM--Mendelian Inheritance in Man catalogue number from V. McKusick's Mendelian Inheritance in man (OMIM, 1998).  (+info)

(5/808) Oral health of patients scheduled for elective abdominal aortic correction with prosthesis.

OBJECTIVE: to evaluate the frequency of potential oral foci of infection in patients scheduled for elective abdominal aortic surgery. DESIGN: prospective clinical study. MATERIALS: oral health and dentures of 50 patients (33 males and 17 females, mean age 65 years) were examined before aortic surgery. CHIEF OUTCOME MEASURES: radiographic and clinical examination with special emphasis on identifying acute and chronic oral and ontogenic conditions which may contribute to aortic prosthesis infection. RESULTS: eighty-two per cent of the patients had some oral infection foci. The mean number of remaining teeth in the cohort was 9.3, and 21% of these were potential infectious foci (62% in the patients). Twenty-six per cent of the patients suffered from oral Candida infection. Seventy-four per cent of the patients had total or partial dentures, 45% of which were ill-fitting and needed repair. CONCLUSIONS: oral infectious foci occur frequently in patients needing aortic surgery. Untreated foci may contribute to aortic prosthesis infection. Preoperative oral evaluation and elimination of intraoral infection is recommended for patients scheduled for abdominal aortic repair.  (+info)

(6/808) Chewing gum--facts and fiction: a review of gum-chewing and oral health.

The world market for chewing gum is estimated to be 560,000 tons per year, representing approximately US $5 billion. Some 374 billion pieces of chewing gum are sold worldwide every year, representing 187 billion hours of gum-chewing if each piece of gum is chewed for 30 minutes. Chewing gum can thus be expected to have an influence on oral health. The labeling of sugar-substituted chewing gum as "safe for teeth" or "tooth-friendly" has been proven beneficial to the informed consumer. Such claims are allowed for products having been shown in vivo not to depress plaque pH below 5.7, neither during nor for 30 minutes after the consumption. However, various chewing gum manufacturers have recently begun to make distinct health promotion claims, suggesting, e.g., reparative action or substitution for mechanical hygiene. The aim of this critical review--covering the effects of the physical properties of chewing gum and those of different ingredients both of conventional and of functional chewing gum--is to provide a set of guidelines for the interpretation of such claims and to assist oral health care professionals in counseling patients.  (+info)

(7/808) Oral health and juvenile idiopathic arthritis: a review.

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) results in significant morbidity that includes an adverse impact on oral health that is generally not well recognized. This review describes current literature which demonstrates poor oral health in children with JIA. The impact of JIA on oral health is probably multifactorial and these factors are discussed. This review emphasizes the role of paediatric dentistry in the multidisciplinary management of JIA and highlights the need for further research.  (+info)

(8/808) Trends in surgical and nonsurgical periodontal treatment.

BACKGROUND: New research is demonstrating that a person's total health is indeed related to his or her oral health. Elimination of all oral infections, including gingivitis and periodontis, is important to overall health. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: This article reviews recent evidence on the systemic and oral connection and discusses these findings as they relate to patient care. The article examines trends in nonsurgical and surgical therapy that will successfully arrest periodontal infections. Opportunities for early diagnosis and prevention will play an increasing role in dental practice in the future as patients understand the importance of oral health to overall health.  (+info)


What are some healthy foods or health food products good for oral health?


Not necessarily looking for a natural remedy for a toothache or anything specific, just wondering if there's any supplements or even foods that promote good oral health, healthy teeth, etc?
----------

Good oral health requires adequate calcium in your diet, and many people don't get enough.  So try to include low-fat milk, yogurt, etc.  Also, calcium is absorbed much more readily if you are also getting plenty of vitamin D, so you want to make sure that you are getting that as well.  

But mostly, oral health depends on keeping stuff *away* from your teeth.  Acidic drinks (orange juice, sodas, etc.) and food particles are the enemy of good oral health. Hardly anyone brushes for long enough (at least two full minutes, and at least twice a day), and not enough people floss every day.  If you do both of those things, that's more important than any supplement you could take.


What are the oral health needs of teenagers?


Its for my homework. One would think the oral health needs of teenagers are more or less the same as the other age groups... but I need to know what specifically are they for teenagers? 

I'd be really grateful if you could help me with this.
----------

To keep their filthy mouths clean


How can I improve my oral health?


I need to improve my oral hygiene to the point where I can get the last two procedures completed: I need permanent fillings on my two front teeth on the top and I need braces. What is a fast way to improve my oral health? I brush twice a day, floss once usually, and rinse with an oral rinse when I can. Additionally, I've cut back on how many sugary things I eat and drink.
----------

go back to the doctor they know what their r doing.


What do you do for good oral health?


I brush my teeth thoroughly, then floss, then use Listerine. Morning and right before bed.

What do you do for good oral health?
----------

Adding to your daily endeavour, a good diet is also essential for optimum health, like milk, cheese, fresh fruit.....I note you floss AFTER the teeth cleaning ??  ... I believe dentists like their patients to floss at least X2 daily, X3 would be ideal...Nothing  nicer that pearly whites to Last a Lifetime...Hope this answers your query


can oral health problems in a diabetec cause a heart attack or other illness?


what would happen if a diabetecs oral health is bad?

Yes.  Many mouth vessels are on a short return to the heart, so could take viruses or bacteria straight to the heart.

I had swollen mitral valve platelets attributed to a mouth infection I did not even notice.  My heart has never been the same.


Dentists ONLY What are some short term and long term effects of smokeless tobacco pertaining to oral health?


Do you feel that it is worse than regular tobacco for your oral health?

SHORT TERM = NICOTINE HIGH
LONG TERM = ADDICTION TO SMOKELESS AND ORAL CANCER


How does oral health (teeth) affect diabetes?


I've never heard of this correlation and my local grocery store in Texas (HEB) posted this advertisement on their pharmacy bags now...

"For better oral health against diabetes, replace your toothbrush every 3 months.".

This statement doesn't make any sense to me.  First of all, the American Dental Association recommends a MONTHLY change of toothbrush for good oral health, but I've never heard of this being done to help prevent diabetes?!!!

Does this make any sense to anyone else out there?

Hi there.  I'm not really sure that statement makes sense.  But it is true that there is a relationship between diabetes and oral health.  Emerging research is indicating that uncontrolled diabetes and periodontal infection can exacerbate each other.

Therefore, for someone with diabetes, having periodontal infection treated will help them to keep their blood sugar controlled.  And conversely, uncontrolled blood sugar levels will make it more difficult to control periodontal infection.

As far as any cause and effect regarding diabetes and periodontal disease, enough research has not yet been completed to make that link.


Are you participating in Oral Health Month?


What have you done so far in order to improve your oral health? If you did not know it was Oral Health Month, are you going to start trying to improve by, for example, brushing your teeth more often?

I will now, and floss too... always a good idea.
