Relationship between oral health and nutrition in very old people. (1/193)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)
Predicting population dental disease experience at a small area level using Census and health service data. (2/193)BACKGROUND: Information on the dental disease patterns of child populations is required at a small area level. At present, this can be provided only by expensive whole population surveys. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of Census data combined with health service information to provide estimates of population dental disease experience at the small area level. METHOD: Clinical dental data were collected from a large cross-sectional survey of 5-year-old children. A preliminary series of bivariate linear regression analyses were undertaken at ward level with the mean number of decayed, missing or filled teeth per child (dmft) as the dependent variable, and the Census and health service and lifestyle variables suspected of having a strong relationship with dmft as independent variables. This was followed by fitting a multiple linear regression model using a stepwise procedure to include independent variables that explain most of the variability in the dependent variable dmft. RESULTS: All deprivation indicators derived from the Census showed a highly significant (p<0.001) bivariate linear relationship with ward dmft. The Jarman deprivation score gave the highest R2 value (0.45), but the Townsend index (R2=0.43) and the single Census variable 'percentage of households with no car' (R2 = 0.42) gave very similar results. The health and lifestyle indicators also showed highly significant (p<0.001) linear relationships with dmft. The R2 values were generally much lower than the deprivation-related Census variables, with the exception of the percentage of residents who smoked (R2 = 0.42). None of the health or lifestyle variables was included in the final dental disadvantage model. This model explained 51 per cent of the variability of ward dmft. CONCLUSIONS: The results demonstrate the strong relationship between dental decay and deprivation, and all of the commonly used measures of deprivation exhibited a similar performance. For this population of young children health and health services shelf data did not improve on the ability of deprivation-related Census variables to predict population dental caries experience at a small area level.

The use of the Index of Orthodontic Treatment need (IOTN) in a school population and referred population. (3/193)The aim of this study is to assess the need for orthodontic treatment in a Turkish school population and a group of population referred for orthodontic treatment. The study groups were 250 school children, 11-14 years of age, and 250 patients, 11-14 years of age, referred to the department of orthodontics. The Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN) was used by two examiner in order to estimate the treatment need. The differences between the IOTN values for the boys and girls were also not statistically significant in both groups. When the dental health component of IOTN is considered, 38.8 per cent of Turkish school population showed great need treatment, 24.0 per cent moderate need treatment and slight or no need was 37.2 per cent. On the other hand, the referred population represented an 83.2 per cent great need treatment, 12.0 per cent moderate need treatment, 4.8 per cent no need treatment according to the DHC. The AC of IOTN in school population resulted in 4.8 per cent great need, 4.8 per cent moderate need, 90.4 per cent no need. These percentage were 36.8 per cent great need, 17.6 per cent moderate need, 45.2 per cent no need in referred population. Grade 8 was 28.8 per cent out of the 36.8 per cent great need percentage in referred population. Therefore, it can be concluded that the ectopic canines were the driving factor for the referred population. (+info)
Dental attendance in 1998 and implications for the future. (4/193)The 1998 survey of Adult Dental Health in the UK was carried out under the auspices of the Office of National Statistics together with the Universities of Birmingham, Dundee, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Wales. A key behavioural indicator in these decennial surveys is whether people say they go to a dentist for a regular dental check-up, an occasional dental check-up or only when they have trouble with their teeth. The proportion of dentate adults in the UK who report attending for regular dental check-ups has risen from 43% in 1978 to 59% in 1998. Older adults (over 55 years old) in 1998 were the most likely to say they attend for regular dental check-ups. Many younger adults (16-24) in 1998 said they went to a dentist less often than 5 years previously, they were also the least likely to say they attend for regular dental check-ups. Dental anxiety remains a problem for many dental patients but another factor of importance to many is their want to be involved in the treatment process and especially to be given an estimate of treatment costs.

Dental attitudes and behaviours in 1998 and implications for the future. (5/193)The 1998 Adult Dental Health Survey included face to face interviews with participants to determine their dental attitudes and behaviours. This article considers reported oral hygiene practices, treatment choices, satisfaction with appearance of teeth, attitudes towards wearing dentures and how these have changed since previous surveys.

Developing an index of restorative dental treatment need. (6/193)The process undertaken to establish an initial pilot index for restorative dental treatment is described. Following consultation with a wide range of clinicians and others, an outline framework for the index was developed and comprised three main components: 1. Patient identified need for treatment: the data from the patient perceived need questionnaire were inconclusive; 2. Complexity of treatment (assessed by clinicians): this was found to be a practical tool capable of being used by a range of dentists. A booklet has been produced which describes the process of using the scoring system; 3. Priority for treatment (assessed by clinicians): three levels of priority were identified; the highest priority was assigned to patients with inherited or developmental defects that justify complex care (eg clefts of the lip and palate). The initial development of the index has had some success in a difficult area. The treatment complexity component is the most developed and may allow both referrers and commissioners of specialist restorative dentistry to determine appropriate use of skilled clinicians' expertise.

Prevalence of malocclusion and orthodontic treatment need in children and adolescents in Bogota, Colombia. An epidemiological study related to different stages of dental development. (7/193)The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of malocclusion in a population of Bogotanian children and adolescents in terms of different degrees of severity in relation to sex and specific stages of dental development, in order to evaluate the need for orthodontic treatment in this part of Colombia. A sample of 4724 children (5-17 years of age) was randomly selected from a population that attended the Dental Health Service; none had been orthodontically treated. Based on their dental stages the subjects were grouped into deciduous, early mixed, late mixed and permanent dentition. The registrations were performed according to a method by Bjork et al. (1964). The need for orthodontic treatment was evaluated according to an index used by the Swedish National Board of Health. The results showed that 88 per cent of the subjects had some type of anomaly, from mild to severe, half of them recorded as occlusal anomalies, one-third as space discrepancies, and one-fifth as dental anomalies. No clear sex differences were noted, except for maxillary overjet, spacing, tooth size (all more frequent in boys), and crowding (more frequent in girls). Occlusal anomalies and space discrepancies varied in the different dental developmental periods, as did tipped and rotated teeth. Little need for orthodontic treatment was found in 35 per cent and moderate need in 30 per cent. A great need was estimated in 20 per cent, comprising children with prenormal occlusion, maxillary overjet, or overbite (> 6 mm), posterior unilateral crossbite with midline deviation (> 2 mm), severe crowding or spacing, congenitally missing maxillary incisors, impacted maxillary canines or anterior open bite (> 3 mm in the permanent dentition). Urgent need for treatment was estimated to be 3 per cent, comprising subjects with extreme post- and pre-normal occlusion, impacted maxillary incisors or extensive aplasia. (+info)

Psychometric evaluation of the child oral impacts on daily performances (C-OIDP) for use in Turkish primary school children: a...
As patient-reported outcome, the Child Oral Impacts on Daily Performances (C-OIDP) has been commonly used for assessing childrens oral health needs in order to facilitate oral health service planning. It was translated and cross-culturally adapted into Turkish in 2008. Since then, there is no study to assess its psychometric properties in Turkish child population. This cross-sectional study aimed to investigate the psychometric properties and factor structure of the Turkish version of the C-OIDP for use in Turkish primary school children. The Turkish translated version was tested on a convenience sample of primary school children aged 11 to 12 years attending two public schools in Istanbul. Data were collected by clinical examinations, face-to-face interviews and self-completed questionnaires. The internal consistency, test-retest reliability, construct validity using exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), criterion related validity (concurrent and discriminant) were
Fluoride Action Network | Warrington: Half of our children's dental health is worse than national average
HEALTH bosses agreed to investigate the possibility of adding fluoride to the water supply in the north west at a meeting last week.. The board at NHS Warrington accepted a paper that asked them to request further investigation into the feasibility of the scheme.. For now, all that means is that the Strategic Health Authority, (SHA), will look into the possibility of adding the chemical.. "This is not a decision on whether we support it; it is a very contentious issue and we appreciate that," said chairman, John Gartside.. The board was told at its monthly meeting that the decision lay with the SHA and not any one primary care trust.. "It is only if and when the SHA decides to do it that this PCT will say whether it supports it," said Dr Keith Milsom, a public health dentist.. "The dental health of the Warrington population is worse than the national average. Eleven of the 22 electoral wards have child dental health that is worse than average," he said..

Greenwich Dept of Health to Visit Boys & Girls Club during Children's Dental Health Month | Greenwich Free Press
They highlight that having healthy teeth means brushing teeth twice daily, flossing every day, eating nutritious foods, limiting snacks and visiting their dentists regularly.. Referrals for dental work are sent home when necessary and the public health hygienists assist with finding a dentist for families, when needed.. "Developing good habits at an early age and receiving regular screening helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums," said Dental Hygienist Linda Conti.. Dental screenings and education at an early age are an important public health service.

Untreated tooth decay can lead to problems with nutrition, growth, school readiness and speech. Children can also easily see that it is important to have healthy teeth to have a nicer smile..

The Importance of Children's Oral Health | North Dallas Dentist
Recognizing the importance of childrens dental health, our North Dallas dentist is committed to educating both children and adults on the road to a healthy dental lifestyle. Although brushing and flossing may be considered basic aspects of dental homecare, there are many factors that can make childrens plaque control more challenging.. Mixed dentition, a term identifying the period in childhood where there are both baby teeth and adult teeth visible in the mouth, can certainly make for more difficult plaque control. During this period of time, there may be loose teeth, missing teeth, newly erupted teeth, crowding, and spacing. It will be especially important to pay close attention to the many new places where plaque may accumulate.. Historically, cavities have been identified as one of childhoods most common diseases. An affinity towards cavity-causing foods and drinks such as sweets and juices, frequent snacks, and other carbohydrates should be closely monitored. For improved dental health, ...

Reauthorize CHIP to Strengthen Dental Safety Net for Kids | Commentary
By Paul O. Walker Making progress toward good health - particularly childrens health - is a good feeling. Parents of healthy children marvel at their milestones and upward trending growth charts. Providers enjoy seeing our smallest patients start out life with a solid foundation that will carry them into healthy adulthood. However, when we stumble in our ability to provide these essential building blocks, or take steps backward in the programs that help make it possible, the effects are significant and long lasting. Childrens dental health care is an area where policymakers and providers have made tremendous strides in past years, thanks to federal programs like the Childrens Health Insurance Program. Set to expire this September unless Congress votes to reauthorize its funding, CHIP has been a driving force in allowing millions of children to receive dental care since 1997, helping to reduce the number of young children with tooth decay and cavities to its lowest point in 25 years.

The title is not intended to convey the idea that tooth conditions are affected very specifically by the intake of certain foods entirely independently of others which are required by the body generally. Recent research is fast reverting to the original concept the organism is a unit entity. Dental health is no less a resultant of those conditions which make for the health and life of the body as a whole than it is itself one of these factors.. Only the balanced diet (including proper supply of oxygen) will meet the food requirements for absolute health - be it tooth health, car health, eye health, the health of any other organ or group of organs. Since life begins in utero, the foundations of normal well-being depend upon the supply of the essential materials made available through the mother- the health of the latter not being of lesser importance. Furthermore, the balanced diet should be viewed as part of a complete medico-dental clinical and laboratory examination. It should be interpreted ...

Oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) has important implications for the clinical practice of dentistry and dental research and should contribute to professional judgment about restorative treatments and prosthetic replacement in patients who had reduced dentitions. The aim was to compare the OHRQoL among adults (35-44 years) categorized according to different definitions of reduced dentition and considering the use (or non-use) of dental prosthesis. This study used data from a probabilistic sample of adults in Sao Paulo, Brazil, 2015. OHRQoL was based on none items of Oral Impacts on Daily Performance (OIDP) index, as prevalence (at least one impact) and extent (the number of items with non-zero score). We used different criteria to assess dentition status: (1) Shortened Dental Arch (SDA): having 3-5 natural occlusal units (OUs) in posterior teeth and intact anterior region; (2) hierarchical functional classification system: a five-level stepwise classification of dentition; and (3) presence of

Long ago and far away, there was a radio drama called This Is Your FBI. J. Edgar Hoover called it "the finest dramatic program on the air." Typically, its intro stressed "the current crime wave" or the excellence of the FBI - sometimes both together.. Did no one stop to ask the obvious: If these agents are our best defense against crime, why are crime rates soaring?. We might ask a similar question about National Childrens Dental Health Month, which we are again in the midst of. What started in 1941 as a one day event in Cleveland and a one week event in Akron was made national by the ADA in 1949. The next year, Congress proclaimed February 6 National Childrens Dental Health Day. Incidentally, this was the same year - 1950 - that the ADA endorsed fluoridation.. Soon, it became a week-long event, and since 1981, the "celebration" (PDF) has lasted the full month.. And how are kids teeth today?.

Xerostomia is a common condition among elderly. The objectives were to examine prevalence, persistence, progression, yearly incidence of xerostomia, associated background factors and its influence on oral impacts on daily performances (OIDP) in 50- to 80-year-old people. In 1992, a questionnaire was sent to all 50-year-old (n = 8888) and in 2007 to all 75-year-old persons (n = 5195) living in two Swedish counties. In 2012, the same questionnaire was sent to both age cohorts, now 70- and 80-year-old. Response rate was for the 50-, 70- 75- and 80-year-old groups 71.4%, 72.2%, 71.9% and 66.4%, respectively. In the 50- to 70-year-old sample, 40.3% of the participants answered all five examinations and in the 75-80 group 49.5% (intact samples). In all age groups, xerostomia was significantly more prevalent in women than in men. At age 80, "often mouth dryness at night" was reported by 24.3% and 16.2% of women and men, respectively. Prevalence increased with age and was more frequent at night-time. ...

Childrens Dental Health Month brings together dental professionals, healthcare providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children. Parents and other caregivers play a huge role in encouraging healthy dental habits for children. Unfortunately, children often resist efforts to get them to brush and floss.

Help them choose a brush and toothpaste formulated for children. Find a brush with their favorite character or a toothpaste in their favorite flavor. Then, put those supplies into action.. Consider making dental health a family affair. Brushing as a family will help the activity seem less like a chore. Furthermore, you will be able to supervise your childs efforts and fit in time for your own oral health. Remember the Importance of Gum Health. With National Gum Disease Awareness ...

Dental caries (decay) is one of the most prevalent chronic childhood diseases worldwide and is a major problem both from a population health perspective and for individual families who have to deal with a young child suffering from toothache [1-3]. In 1996, 39 percent of Australian 6 year-old children had dental caries [4, 5], and since that time caries experience in Australian children in all States and Territories has increased [5, 6]. The 2002 Child Dental Health Survey of Australia reported that 45 percent of 5-year-olds had one or more decayed or missing teeth and 10 percent of those children examined were found to have more than seven decayed teeth . Local data from the Centre for Oral Health Strategy (NSW Health) indicates that despite water fluoridation, dental caries is a major public health problem particularly in disadvantaged areas. For example, 40 percent of the 5-6-year-olds  surveyed in the Sydney South West Area Health Service (SSWAHS) had up to 5 missing or decayed teeth- ...

Baby Oral Hygeine | Understand Oral Health Conditions
Many parents are of the opinion that a baby does not need any teeth care or hygiene to be maintained as primary or baby teeth are temporary and will fall off, being replaced by permanent teeth. But it is equally important to follow a care and hygiene routine for oral health for babies too as there is an equal chance of tooth decay and gum troubles. Besides starting an early oral care regimen will prepare your baby and make him used to brushing and flossing which is vital for oral health as your baby will grow. Ignoring oral hygiene can lead to cavities and plaque in the primary teeth which can not only cause pain which could have been avoided but also gum infections. Early extraction due to tooth decay of primary teeth can also affect normal growth and occurrence of permanent teeth. Caring for your babys oral health should start before the emergence of your babys first tooth.. ...
