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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

Objective: The aims of this study were to estimate the prevalence and correlates of self-rated oral health (=SROH) among adults in a national population-based survey in Ecuador.

Results: The prevalence of poor SROH was 9.7%, 10.1% among females and 9.4% among males. In multivariable logistic regression analysis, aged 50-69 years [adjusted odds ratio (AOR): 3.06, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.99, 4.72], Amerindian (AOR: 1.78, 95% CI: 1.23, 1.58), pain in the teeth/mouth (AOR: 2.03, 95% CI: 1.51, 2.73), impaired OHRQoL (OR: 3.94, 95% CI: 2.93, 5.29), dental visit more than past 12 months ago or never (AOR: 1.74, 95% CI: 1.32, 2.29), past smoking (AOR: 1.50, 95% CI: 1.08, 2.09) and history of heart attack or stroke (AOR: 1.57, 95% CI: 1.04, 2.37) were positively and having more than ...
Purpose: The aim of the present study was to investigate whether self-consciousness, self-reported oral health status and oralhealth-related behaviours were associated. Material and Methods: The present study sample consisted of 253 first year medical students in Romania. The questionnaire included information about socio-demographic factors, behavioural variables, self-reported oral health status and three selfconsciousness subscales (Private Self-Consciousness, Public Self-Consciousness, and Social Anxiety). Results: Significant differences were found in Public Self-Consciousness and Social Anxiety according to several variables: anxiety, stress, depression and current non-treated caries. There were significant differences in Social Anxiety for the variables of gender, smoking, perceived dental health, self-reported gum bleeding and reason for dental visit (p < 0.05). A significant difference was found in Public Self-Consciousness for the reason for dental visits (p < 0.05). Total ...
Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General (the Report) alerted Americans to the importance of oral health in their daily lives [USDHHS 2000a]. Issued in May 2000, the report further detailed how oral health is promoted, how oral diseases and conditions are prevented and managed, and what needs and opportunities exist to enhance oral health. The reports message was that oral health is essential to general health and well-being and can be achieved. However, several barriers hinder the ability of some Americans to attain optimal oral health. The Surgeon Generals report concluded with a framework for action, calling for a national oral health plan to improve quality of life and eliminate oral health disparities.. One component of an oral health plan is a set of measurable and achievable objectives on key indicators of oral disease burden, oral health promotion, and oral disease prevention. One set of national indicators was developed in November 2000 as part of Healthy People 2010, a ...
Objective. Focusing on 70-year-old adults in Sweden and guided by the conceptual framework of International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities and Handicaps (ICIDH), the purpose of this study was to examine the extent to which socio-demographic characteristics, self-reported oral disease and social/psychological/physical oral health outcome variables are associated with two global measures of self-assessed satisfaction with oral health in Swedish 70-year-olds and if there is a degree of discordance between these global questions. Background. It has become an important task to create a simple way to measure self-perceived oral health. In these attempts to find practical ways to measure health, the global oral health question is a possible tool to measure self-rated oral health, but there is limited knowledge about how important the wording of this question is. Materials and methods. In 2012, a questionnaire was mailed to all persons born in 1942 in two Swedish counties, Orebro (T) and ...
The questions this thesis seeks to answer are related to the increased interest in the oral health status of Australian teenagers and particularly whether there has been an increase in their level of dental disease In NSW. Five peer-reviewed journal articles are presented in this thesis describing the oral health status of teenagers in NSW, risk factors for dental caries, the impact of sugar sweetened beverages, and the utilisation of dental services. The first publication describes the oral health status of a random sample of 14 and 15 year olds in New South Wales as part of a state-wide survey in 2010. The survey reported a mean DMFT for 14 and 15 year olds of 1.2 and the major variations in caries experience found were related to remoteness, water fluoridation status, socio-economic status and household income levels. The second paper identifies the key protective oral health behaviour was regular tooth brushing, with those brushing twice or more a day having significantly lower caries ...

Pregnancy is a unique period during a womans life and is characterized by complex physiological changes that may adversely affect oral health. At the same time, oral health is key to overall health and well-being. Preventive, diagnostic, and restorative dental treatment is safe throughout pregnancy and is effective in improving and maintaining oral health.. Health professionals often do not provide oral health care to pregnant women, and pregnant women, some with obvious signs of oral disease, often dont seek or receive oral health care. In many cases, neither pregnant women nor health professionals understand that oral health care is an important component of a healthy pregnancy.. Educating pregnant women about preventing and treating dental cavities is critical. Evidence suggests that most infants and young children acquire cavity-causing bacteria from their mothers. Providing pregnant women with counseling to promote healthy oral health behaviors may reduce transmission of such bacteria ...
Midwives can play a key role in promoting the oral health of pregnant women and assessing their oral health status. A maternal oral assessment tool (MOS) was developed and pilot tested by the study investigators to assist midwives in this role and the results were promising. The aim of this study was to undertake further sensitivity and specificity assessment of the MOS tool using two-comparison approaches- the longer oral health screening tool known as the Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP-14) and an oral assessment by trained study dentists. Pregnant women were recruited for this study as part of a larger randomised controlled trial of a Midwifery Initiated Oral Health (MIOH) program. Pregnant women completed the MOS and OHIP-14 as part of their initial assessment undertaken by 38 trained and accredited midwives. A dental assessment was conducted for all women in the intervention group using three trained study dentists with high inter rater reliability. Two hundred and eleven pregnant women
Self-reported oral health and quality of life in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in primary care: a multi-center cross-sectional study
EDITORIALS. Oral health, general health and quality of life. Aubrey Sheiham. Professor of Dental Public Health, Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, University College London Medical School, University College London, 1 19 Torrington Place, London WC1E 6BT, England (email: [email protected]). The compartmentalization involved in viewing the mouth separately from the rest of the body must cease because oral health affects general health by causing considerable pain and suffering and by changing what people eat, their speech and their quality of life and well-being. Oral health also has an effect on other chronic diseases (1). Because of the failure to tackle social and material determinants and incorporate oral health into general health promotion, millions suffer intractable toothache and poor quality of life and end up with few teeth.. Health policies should be reoriented to incorporate oral health using sociodental approaches to assessing needs and the common risk factor approach ...
The Trump administration and state officials seeking Medicaid work rules have argued they are aimed at helping people find jobs. But the evidence is clear that losing health coverage is an impediment both to employment and to good health. This is especially true when it comes to oral health coverage, as noted in CDHPs fact sheet on family oral health. Access to oral health care can help people secure a job. Good oral health is also linked to higher earnings over time, particularly for women. Thats key to family economic stability. Unfortunately, harmful Medicaid waivers are likely to result in fewer parents accessing the oral health care they need, which has negative consequences for the entire family.. Tens of millions of people rely on Medicaid to access essential health and dental care. With support to stay healthy, this key program also helps lift families out of poverty and puts them on a path to success. While we have much work to do to ensure that Medicaid meets the needs of every ...

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
Results Men with poor oral health experienced a higher risk of cause-specific and all-cause mortality. HRs for all-cause mortality were 2.94 (95% CI 2.11 to 4.08) among individuals with poor oral health and 3.98 (95% CI 2.43 to 6.49) among edentates compared with those with good oral health after adjusting for ethnicity and age. The association attenuated but remained significant after further adjustment for systemic conditions, socioeconomic position and behaviours. Socioeconomic and behavioural factors explained 52% and 44% of mortality risks attributed to poor oral health and being edentate, respectively.. ...
Oral health belief is a prerequisite of changing oral health behaviors especially during adolescence. However, there is a paucity of well-established questionnaire for use among adolescents. This study aimed to develop and validate an instrument to evaluate adolescents beliefs about oral health behaviors using health belief model. A preliminary 43-item questionnaire was developed by an expert panel. Then the questionnaire was finalized by decreasing the number of items to 35 by analyzing the results from face validity and factor analysis from 421 Hong Kong secondary school students. The content validity were evaluated by a panel of 2 behavioral scientists, 2 dentists, 2 schoolteachers and 10 adolescents. The construct validity of the questionnaire was assessed by performing exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). The Cronbachs alpha coefficient, item-total correlation and intraclass coefficient were used to test its reliability. In addition, to confirm its

What does the phrase oral health mean to you? No new cavities at your dental checkup? Thats certainly part of it. But its really so much more than a lack of tooth decay. Good oral health means a mouth thats free of disease - which can range all the way from mild gingivitis (gum inflammation) to oral cancer; a bite that functions well enough for you to eat without pain and get ample nutrition; and a smile that lets you express your happiest emotions with confidence. Simply put, oral health is a crucial component of your overall health and well-being.. ​. Its important to realize that small - and readily treatable - problems in your mouth can become more complicated, painful and expensive if neglected for too long. Some of these oral health conditions may even have ramifications throughout the whole body. Gingivitis, for example, can sometimes progress to periodontitis - a more serious form of gum disease that can loosen teeth and cause them to fall out. Missing teeth can lead to bone loss ...
Good health requires good oral health, yet millions of Americans, especially vulnerable and underserved populations, lack access to basic oral health care. The Health Resources and Services Administration and the California HealthCare Foundation asked the IOM and the National Research Council to assess the current oral health care system and make recommendations on ways to improve access to care for vulnerable and underserved populations. The IOM recommends changes to incorporate oral health care into overall health care, changes in education and training of all types of health care professionals, and changes in how oral health care is financed and delivered.
To our best knowledge, there was little research to assess the changes of quality of life and satisfaction after orthognathic in one trial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the changes of oral health related quality of life and satisfaction between surgery-first and orthodontic-first orthognathic surgery. Fifty Chinese orthognathic adluts patients completed two questionnaires: the Dental Impact on Daily Living questionnaire for assessment of his/her satisfaction and 14-item Oral Health Impact Profile for assessment of patients quality of life. The subjects completed six sets of interviews and clinical evaluations at before treatment; 1 month after surgery (surgery-first); 6 months after treatment; 12 months after treatment ; and 18 month after treatment ; the finished treatment. The pre and post surgical orthodontic period was also recorded. Chi square tests and repeated-measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) were used to compare categorical variables and measure results. All analyses were carried
A recent study found that oral health is a major public health problem in Europe and that oral diseases have considerable negative impacts on the quality of life of populations. The study indicated that, vulnerable and low-income groups as a whole receive oral health care services less frequently than the general population and more so for emergency situations when in pain, rather than for preventive care. The conclusion of the review of dozens of public health programs across European countries was that in the case of oral health, investment in simple preventive programs is cost-effective and that solving the problem of poor oral health in Europe does not require an entirely new policy in every case or a reinvention of the wheel. There are many programs in place to address the oral health inequalities for vulnerable groups, with new models and approaches to care being introduced and explored on an ongoing basis. ...
September 26-30 is Malnutrition Awareness Week in the United States.. The Journal of Clinical & Diagnostic Research explained in an article that Malnutrition affects the oral health and a poor oral health in turn, may lead to malnutrition. This interdependent relationship sees good nutritional health, thus promoting good oral health and vice versa.. In other words, teeth help you maintain proper eating and nutritional health. And proper diet helps you maintain optimal oral and physical health. When one of these components suffers, the other will suffer as well.. Group Health Dental understands the interdependent relationship between malnutrition and oral health. For that reason wed like to remind our patients of the importance of maintaining a healthy and well-rounded diet. Be sure to include vitamins and minerals and other nutrients that promote healthy tissues and organ function. Its also important to create and continue in good daily oral hygiene routines each day such as brushing and ...
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.. ...

Poor oral health in early childhood can have long-term consequences, and parents often are unaware of the importance of preventive measures for infants and toddlers. Children in rural, low-income families suffer disproportionately from the effects of poor oral health. Participants were 91 parents of infants and toddlers enrolled in Early Head Start (EHS) living in rural Hawaii, USA. In this quasi-experimental design, EHS home visitors were assigned to use either a didactic or family-centered video with parents they served. Home visitors reviewed short segments of the assigned videos with parents over an eight-week period. Both groups showed significant prepost gains on knowledge and attitudes/behaviors relating to early oral health as well as self-reported changes in family oral health routines at a six-week followup. Controlling for pretest levels, parents in the family-centered video group showed larger changes in attitudes/behaviors at posttest and a higher number of positive changes in family oral
Women undergo several hormonal changes throughout their lives, causing hormone levels to fluctuate. This fluctuation can not only cause changes in the body, but in the mouth as well. At my St. Joseph dental office, we want to cater to our female patients, and this blog can explain how their hormonal changes affect their oral health.. Because of the unique hormonal changes women experience, chances for oral health problems actually increase. When hormone levels adjust, the blood supply to the gum tissue is affected, as well as the bodys response to toxins caused by plaque. This makes women more susceptible to gum disease and other oral health problems during certain stages in their lives when the hormonal changes are particularly extreme.. Puberty. The first major change in female hormones occurs during puberty. When a woman enters puberty, the female hormones of estrogen and progesterone surge. This increase in hormone levels not only cause changes to the body, it can also change how your mouth ...

Poor oral health is still a major burden for populations throughout the world, particularly in developing countries. The aim of this study was investigate oral health behaviour (tooth brushing and dental attendance) and associated factors in low, middle and high income countries. Using anonymous questionnaires, data were collected from 19,560 undergraduate university students (mean age 20.8, SD = 2.8) from 27 universities in 26 countries across Asia, Africa and the Americas. Results indicate that 67.2% of students reported to brush their teeth twice or more times a day, 28.8% about once a day and 4.0% never. Regarding dental check-up visit, 16.3% reported twice a year, 25.6% once a year, 33.9% rarely and 24.3% never. In a multivariate logistic regression analysis, being a male, coming from a wealthy or quite well off family background, living in low income or lower middle income, weak beliefs in the importance of regular tooth brushing, depression and PTSD symptoms, tobacco use and frequent gambling,
Research shows that oral health and general health are related. Poor oral health is often associated with chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, respiratory diseases, cancer, obesity, dementia and Alzheimers disease. In addition to other conditions, oral health is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes. Integrating oral health in primary care transforms care delivery in ways that benefit both patient and provider. Screening for risk factors and early signs of disease, along with dental referrals can improve patient care and treatment planning. We hope this tip sheet provides the resources you need to learn more about the oral-systemic connection and helps you communicate evidence-based best practice recommendations to optimize your patients health and well-being ...
Background: Oral health (OH) is poor among young adults in Russia, but there is little information on OH-related quality of life (OHRQoL) in this population. We investigated how socio-demographic factors, self-reported OH characteristics, oral health behaviour, and clinically-assessed OH are related to OHRQoL in medical and dental students in North-West Russia. Methods: This cross-sectional study included 391 medical and 275 dental Russian undergraduate students aged 18-25 years. Information on socio-demographic, self-reported OH characteristics, and oral health behaviour was obtained from a structured, self-administered questionnaire. A clinical examination was performed to assess dental caries experience based on the decayed (D) missing (M) filled (F) teeth (T) index; Simplified Oral Hygiene Index; and Gingival Index. OHRQoL was measured by the OH Impact Profile (OHIP-14). Results: 53.6% of students reported low OHRQoL during the last 12 months. Female sex (odds ratio [OR] = 1.48, 95% confidence

The state Department of Healths recently released surveillance report on the oral health of Hawaiis children doesnt give much to smile about.. The Hawaii Smiles survey confirmed that the states children have the highest prevalence of tooth decay in the nation. The baseline results were based on data collected from more than 3,000 third-grade students in 67 public elementary schools during the 2014-2015 school year.. Third graders were selected because this is the same target population of national oral health surveillance surveys and provided a basis of comparison with national statistics.. The survey showed that all Hawaii children do not take advantage of preventive measures to improve their oral health. More than 60 percent of children in Hawaii do not have protective dental sealants, a cost-effective clinical intervention to prevent tooth decay in molars.. The surveys key findings:. ...

Although oral health is improving in England almost a quarter (24.7%) of 5-year olds have tooth decay, meaning 1 in 4 will have tooth decay when they start school. In fact, every 10 minutes a child in England has a rotten tooth removed. It is the most common reason that children aged between five and nine need treatment in hospital.. Poor oral health impacts on children and familys wellbeing and is almost totally preventable. Children who have tooth ache or who need treatment due to poor oral health may have to be absent from school. ...
The number of missed opportunities to discuss oral health as part of medical checkups for both mother and baby is an eye opener, said Dr. Stacie Rivers, Cigna medical director for maternity programs and a board certified obstetrician and gynecologist. There is a clear action step for physicians, and significant gains to be made when there is an integrated effort to help patients understand the connection between oral health and overall wellness. The effects of the doctors influence seems to last beyond delivery -- while only 43% of new mothers have had a dental checkup since giving birth, that percentage climbs to 63% for women whose doctors discussed oral health during maternity visits. Postpartum dental visits are also important, particularly as dental hygiene habits may slip once baby arrives. More than one-third of new mothers (36%) say they are brushing and flossing less frequently than before the baby - many blaming lack of time. Similarly, pediatricians can help babies start the path ...
Access to oral health care for children is an important concern that has received considerable attention since publication of Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General in 2000.2 The report identified profound and consequential disparities in the oral health of our citizens and that dental disease restricts activities in school, work, and home, and often significantly diminishes the quality of life.2 It concluded that for certain large groups of disadvantaged children there is a silent epidemic of dental disease.2 This report identified dental caries as the most common chronic disease of children in the U.S., noting that 80 percent of tooth decay is found in 20 to 25 percent of children, large portions of whom live in poverty or low-income households and lack access to an on-going source of quality dental care.2 Research on the topic has shown that the distribution of these disparities may vary by age group.3 The mission of the AAPD is to advance optimal oral health for all ...

Good Oral Health Practices You know the drill--its what you hope to avoid with regular brushing and flossing. Brushing twice a day will help get rid of plaque, the main cause of tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque is a sticky film that is deposited on your teeth. It is made up of bacteria, mucus and minerals in the saliva. Bacteria break down the sugars and starches from foods into acids, which attack the enamel on your teeth, causing tooth decay and other problems. Clean white teeth, healthy gums and ...
