Total tooth loss among persons aged > or =65 years--selected states, 1995-1997. (1/234)

Loss of all natural permanent teeth (edentulism) substantially reduces quality of life, self-image, and daily functioning. Although loss of teeth results from oral diseases such as dental caries and periodontitis, it also reflects patient and dentist attitudes, availability and accessibility of dental care, and the prevailing standard of care. One of the national health objectives for 2000 is to reduce to no more than 20% the proportion of persons aged > or =65 years who have lost all their natural teeth (objective 13.4). Edentulism has been declining in the United States since the 1950s, but few state-specific data are available on adult tooth loss. To estimate the prevalence of edentulism among persons aged > or =65 years, CDC analyzed data from the 46 states that participated in the oral health module of the 1995-1997 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). This report summarizes the findings from this analysis, which indicate a large state-specific variation in edentulism and that many states have not yet achieved the national health objective for preventing total tooth loss.  (+info)

Post-extraction remodeling of the adult mandible. (2/234)

Following tooth loss, the mandible shows an extensive loss of bone in some individuals. This may pose a significant problem in the prosthodontic restoration of function and esthetics. The many factors which have been proposed as being responsible for the inter-individual variation in post-extraction remodeling mean that a perfunctory analysis of the literature, in which well-controlled, relevant studies are scarce, may not provide the whole story. This article reviews the local and systemic factors which may play a role in the post-extraction remodeling of the mandible. Since severe residual ridge resorption may occur even when the bone status in the rest of the skeleton is good and vice versa, it is concluded that local functional factors are of paramount significance. It is now essential to determine how they can be modified and applied to help maintain ridge height and quality in our aging, edentulous population.  (+info)

Autogenous tooth transplantation: an alternative to dental implant placement? (3/234)

Autogenous tooth transplantation, or autotransplantation, is the surgical movement of a tooth from one location in the mouth to another in the same individual. Once thought to be experimental, autotransplantation has achieved high success rates and is an excellent option for tooth replacement. Although the indications for autotransplantation are narrow, careful patient selection coupled with an appropriate technique can lead to exceptional esthetic and functional results. One advantage of this procedure is that placement of an implant-supported prosthesis or other form of prosthetic tooth replacement is not needed. This article highlights the indications for autogenous tooth transplantation using 3 case reports as examples. A review of the recommended surgical technique as well as success rates are also discussed.  (+info)

Tooth loss in periodontal patients. (4/234)

OBJECTIVE: To compare tooth loss between patients who received surgical therapy for chronic periodontitis and those who received nonsurgical therapy alone. METHODS: A retrospective chart study was conducted at Dalhousie University. All patients who had periodontal treatment and were active cases for at least 10 years were included (n = 335). The sample consisted of 120 males (35.8%) and 215 females (64.2%). Ages ranged from 16 to 77 (mean = 46.1 +/- 12.0 years). All patients received nonsurgical therapy; 44.8% received periodontal surgery as well. Variables recorded were demographics, initial attachment loss, treatment type, recall frequency, patient compliance and history of extracted teeth. Independent t-tests or chi-squared tests were used to compare these for surgical and nonsurgical patients. ANOVA was used to test for interactions between initial attachment loss, age, gender, compliance and type of therapy a patient received as reasons for tooth loss. RESULTS: 521 teeth were lost in 69 patients (20.6% of sample). Of teeth lost, 61.8% were due to periodontal disease; 24.8% to caries; 13.2% to other reasons. Patients initially diagnosed with early attachment loss lost an average of 0.37 (+/- 1.33) teeth. Patients diagnosed with moderate attachment loss lost an average of 1.50 (+/- 2.54) teeth and those diagnosed with advanced attachment loss lost an average of 3.11 (+/- 3.01) teeth. Those who received surgical therapy lost more teeth (mean = 1.31 +/- 2.36) than those who received nonsurgical treatment (mean = 0.68 +/- 1.87; p = 0.001). However, initial attachment loss was the only factor that could predict tooth loss. The type of therapy (surgical or nonsurgical) was not statistically significant. CONCLUSIONS: Most periodontal patients (79.4%) who received treatment at this dental school clinic did not lose any teeth due to periodontal disease over at least 10 years. Although patients who had surgical therapy lost more teeth than those who had nonsurgical therapy alone, this was not an important predictor of tooth loss.  (+info)

Ridge augmentation using mandibular tori. (5/234)

A 19-year-old female was referred by her dental practitioner for the restoration of missing maxillary lateral incisors and canines. Ridge augmentation was required. This was undertaken using mandibular tori as the sites for harvesting bone. The grafting was successful and the spaces were subsequently restored using resin-bonded bridgework. The case reports that mandibular tori provide a local and convenient source of bone for ridge augmentation procedures.  (+info)

Developing an index of restorative dental treatment need. (6/234)

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.  (+info)

Good occlusal practice in children's dentistry. (7/234)

The difference between paediatric dentistry and most other branches of dentistry is that in the child the occlusion is changing. Consequently 'Good Occlusal Practice' in children is a matter of making the right clinical decisions for the future occlusion. The clinician needs to be able to predict the influence that different treatment options will have on the occlusion when the child's development is complete.  (+info)

Epidemiological study on improving the QOL and oral conditions of the aged--Part 1: The relationship between the status of tooth preservation and QOL. (8/234)

In part 1 of this epidemiological study, a survey was conducted for all senior citizens aged 70 and over who resided in a mountainous village in the mid-section of Hyogo Prefecture. It focused on the relationship among the number of existing teeth, life environment, health status, and activities of daily living; and the correlation between oral status and QOL was analyzed. The daily activities of individuals were compared between those having one or more teeth and others who were totally edentulous. Subsequently, it was found that for both males and females, the odds ratio was significantly high for the dentulous individuals, in comparison with edentulous individuals, to exhibit a behavior indicative of a better QOL (such as "opportunity for conversation with family members or others)", "regular physical activities", and "attend meetings or group outings"). The result of this survey indicates that the presence of teeth is very closely related to one's daily activities. It was concluded that preventing tooth loss is vital for maintaining the masticatory function; so to prevent tooth loss, periodontal disease must be averted.  (+info)

Conflicting results identifying the association between tooth loss and cardiovascular disease and stroke have been reported. Therefore, a dose-response meta-analysis was performed to clarify and quantitatively assess the correlation between tooth loss and cardiovascular disease and stroke risk. Up to March 2017, seventeen cohort studies were included in current meta-analysis, involving a total of 879084 participants with 43750 incident cases. Our results showed statistically significant increment association between tooth loss and cardiovascular disease and stroke risk. Subgroups analysis indicated that tooth loss was associated with a significant risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke in Asia and Caucasian. Furthermore, tooth loss was associated with a significant risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke in fatal cases and nonfatal cases. Additionally, a significant dose-response relationship was observed between tooth loss and cardiovascular disease and stroke risk. Increasing per 2 of tooth loss
We investigated and clarified the relationship between tooth loss and clinical measures of periodontal disease, thus providing a novel epidemiological explanation for conflicting results in the literature linking periodontal disease and CVD. To the best of our knowledge, this is also the first article to identify a relationship between tooth loss and subclinical CVD.. A recent publication showed increased risk of stroke in those with substantial numbers of missing teeth.17 A number of other analyses have reported on tooth loss and CVD previously.7,18-20 All but 1 of these reports17 examined tooth loss exposure simply as a dichotomous variable. These studies have focused primarily on the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, and prevalent coronary heart disease in relation to tooth loss, whereas we have used subclinical atherosclerosis as the primary outcome in a cohort free of baseline cardiovascular disease. Therefore, our findings shed light on a potential pathway through which oral health ...
Objectives Following community dwelling cohorts in Norway and Sweden from 65 to 70 years, this study aimed to answer the following questions; Is there cross country variation in educational inequality in tooth loss between the Norwegian and Swedish cohorts? Does oral health behaviours and attitudinal beliefs play a role in explaining educational inequality in tooth loss across time and cohorts? Material and Methods In 2007 and 2012 Statistics Norway administered mailed questionnaires to all individuals born in 1942 in three counties. The response rate was 58% (n = 4211) in 2007 and 54.5% (n = 3733) in 2012. In Sweden the same questionnaires were sent to the 1942 cohort in two counties. The final response rate in 2007 and 2012 were respectively, 73.1% (n = 6078) and 72.2% (n = 5697). Results In Norway, tooth loss prevalence was 21.8% in 2007 and 23.2% in 2012. Corresponding figures in Sweden were 25.9% and 27.3%. The prevalence of tooth loss was higher among lower than higher educated ...
This community-based survey revealed that the prevalence of a low MMSE score was significantly increased in association with the decrease in the number of remaining teeth (Figure 2). After adjustment for other explanatory variables (Table 2), a significant relationship between the decrease in the number of remaining teeth and a low MMSE score was observed. These results are consistent with those of previous reports demonstrating that tooth loss was associated with decreased cognitive function [21, 22]. We also revealed that a decrease in the number of remaining teeth was associated with the risk of MMI.. Four limitations of the present study merit consideration. The principal limitation was that the data were derived from a cross-sectional study; thus, we can only hypothesize for the biological credibility of the effect of tooth loss on MMI and a low MMSE score. Second, we did not investigate when tooth loss started or its causes. We also did not investigate markers of inflammation in the ...

Women who have more children are more likely to suffer tooth loss, according to a new study.. The survey of 2,635 women in the US was carried out by Dr Stefanie Russell, an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology & Health Promotion and is published on the website of the American Journal of Public Health.. His findings suggest that profound biological and behavioural changesrelated to pregnancy and childbirth are likely to be a factor in tooth loss.. For example, as pregnancy can leave women prone to gingivitis, then repeated pregnancies could lead to tooth loss in women with periodontitis.. Also, women may postpone seeking dental treatment because of financial concerns related to having children and caring for more children may lead a mother to cut back on the time she devotes to her own oral health.. Dr Russells conclusions are based on information on white and black non-Hispanic women ages 18-64 who reported at least one pregnancy in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a ...
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the incidence and causes of tooth loss in periodontal subjects from a private practice in Brazil. Two trained examiners extracted data from the records of subjects who sought periodontal treatment from 1980 to 2013. Only records of patients who completed the non-surgical periodontal treatment and had at least one visit for maintenance were included. Data were analyzed by chi-square test, Students t-test, Kaplan-Meier survival curve and Cox regression. A total of 3,319 records were reviewed and 737 records included (58.6% women, mean age of 46.6±13.0 years at the beginning of the treatment). Maintenance period ranged from 1 to 33 years (7.4±6 years). During this period, 202 individuals (27.4%) lost 360 teeth, 47.5% of losses within the first five years (n=171). Non-compliers lost more teeth than compliers (p,0.001), respectively 211 and 149 teeth. Regarding reasons of tooth loss, 84 individuals lost 38% of the teeth from periodontal disease ...

When you experience tooth loss, your first thought is probably about the way you look. A smile with missing teeth just isnt as attractive. But not only that, missing teeth can lead to a number of other problems, as well.. Did you know that just one missing tooth could affect both your oral and general health? Tooth loss increases your risk of decay in other teeth, gum disease, bite misalignment and even additional missing teeth. Moreover, malnutrition due to tooth loss as well as systemic illnesses associated with gum disease-diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure to name only a few-could threaten your overall well being. Therefore, tooth replacement is a necessity rather than a luxury.. Dentists have been using partial and full dentures for centuries to replace missing teeth. Youre probably familiar with the stories about President George Washingtons false teeth. Fortunately, these oral prosthetics have come a long, long way since then. Now, thanks to modern materials and ...
Accidents happen, especially to teenagers involved with sports or similar activities. In an instant they can lose one or more teeth and permanently alter their smile.. Fortunately we can restore a teenagers lost teeth, but often not immediately as a permanent restoration with a dental implant requires maturity of their jaw structure. Our focus then turns to the age of the patient and the condition of the underlying bone. A future dental implant, your best choice for tooth replacement, depends on bone for support, but also the age of the patient as it relates to jaw development.. There are a couple of ways an accidental tooth loss can harm supporting bone: first and foremost, the impact of the accident itself can damage the bony socket. To find out for sure we may need to perform a cone beam scan, a type of x-ray that allows us to view the area three-dimensionally. If we do find damage, we can attempt to repair the socket through bone grafting.. Bone can also suffer from the long-term absence of ...

OBJECTIVE To clarify the associations of periodontal damage and tooth loss with atherogenic factors among diabetic patients. METHODS We examined the correlations of age, sex, smoking, oral hygiene score, blood pressure, body mass index, and blood chemical data with the mean depth of periodontal pockets or the number of remaining teeth. PATIENTS One hundred outpatients with type 2 diabetes aged 29 to 77 years. RESULTS The mean depth of periodontal pockets was significantly associated with smoking, oral hygiene score, and HbA1c; the Spearman correlation coefficients (r) were 0.220, 0.417, and 0.260, respectively. Age, oral hygiene score, and HbA1c were inversely correlated with the number of remaining teeth (r=-0.306, -0.287, and -0.275, respectively). Serum total cholesterol was significantly correlated with the mean depth of pockets after adjustment for smoking, oral hygiene score, and HbA1c (r=0.211; P=0.044), while serum HDL cholesterol tended to be negatively associated with depth (r=-0.202; P

From the natural means of healthy living to intervention via cosmetic medicine and surgery. we are constantly trying to turn back the clock against the relentless process of growing old. In the end, our attempts yield only limited success.. Yes, our eyesight will dim, our hearing will deteriorate, muscles will weaken and wrinkles will become more apparent - all these and more are part of the ageing process. Contrary to an old but popular belief, tooth loss is not part of growing old. In fact, our teeth are designed to last us a lifetime. Having a smile with our natural teeth, and strong and healthy gums should be within reach for most people.. Too often, older folks assume that loose teeth result in tooth loss and wearing dentures is a foregone conclusion. This is far from true; gum disease is well, a disease. Most of us know about tooth decay and how certain bacteria in our mouths can produce acids to ...

As a cross-sectional study, our finding on the significant association between periodontitis and cognitive impairment is consistent with the previous observation and review studies. A cohort study conducted in 60 Southampton elderly people, United Kingdom, by Mark Ide, 2016, showed that periodontitis was associated with an increase in cognitive decline in Alzheimers disease [26]. Iwasaki M et al, 2015, in Japanese older adults reported for low MMSE score associated with periodontal disease and edentulous [27]. A Systematic review and Meta-analysis by Cerutti-Kopplin et al, 2016, studied the association between periodontal disease and cognitive status showed conflicting results [28]. Few studies have found association between tooth loss (periodontitis and dental caries) and cognitive impairment. A cross-sectional study by Jianfeng Luo, 2015 among 3063 Chinese older adults showed that tooth loss of ,16 were significantly associated with dementia with an OR of 1.56 (95% CI 1.12- 2.18) [5]. A study ...
Results Adjusted analysis revealed a Prevalence Ratio of HBP of 1.42 (95% CI 1.15 to 1.75) and 1.06 (95% CI 0.91 to 1.24) for edentate adults and adults with ,10 teeth in at least one arch respectively, compared to those with 10 or more teeth in both arches. An association between edentate men and SBP was observed in the unadjusted but not the adjusted analysis. However, among women, edentate participants showed significantly higher SBP when compared with those with 10 or more teeth in both arches, after adjusting for potential confounders. ...

You cant see the bone inside your jaw - but the consequences of bone loss are very real. Bone tissue needs stimulation to maintain its volume and density. When teeth are lost, the jaw bone that once supported them loses stimulation and begins to deteriorate. It can lose one-quarter of its width in just one year, and even more as time passes. As the jaw becomes smaller, facial height (the distance from nose to chin) decreases, and facial features lose support. The chin rotates forward, the corners of the mouth turn downward (as if frowning), and the cheeks can appear hollow. Loss of bone in the jaw can give you the appearance of being many years older than you actually are.. The consequences of tooth loss are very real, even if they are less visible than a gap in your smile. Thats why it is so important not to put off the replacement of missing teeth.. ...

The American Heart Association and Steves PDL want to remind you that this is Heart Health Month. There are many ways to care for your heart, such as a healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, as well as an active lifestyle.. But thats not the whole picture. We in the dental industry know that oral health has a direct effect on heart health. Studies have long linked tooth loss and periodontitis with heart problems. As dental health professionals, our actions truly benefit the whole person.. While the link between oral and heart health is clear, we are still exploring the reasons behind this link. Some scientific studies have linked periodontitis - an oral bacterial infection which causes inflammation - with inflamed, clogged arteries in the heart. The disease endocarditis is a bacterial infection on the skin of the heart, and it is caused by the spread of bacteria to the heart from other areas of the body. Poor oral hygiene and tooth loss provide opportunities for oral ...

Q: My dentist said my gum infection has spread to my jaw bone, and it could mean I might lose my teeth if it does not get better. He referred me to a periodontist to get treated. Doesnt everyone lose their teeth as they get older?A: Contrary to what many people think, tooth loss is not an inevitable consequence of aging. Although more than a quarter of Americans older than age 60 no longer have any of their teeth, this is actually a significant improvement from 50 years ago, due to the
At the early stages of gum disease, the damage can be reversed. But once it progresses into a severe level of infection, the damage becomes a lifetime. Such stage is called periodontitis. When this infection emerge, the gums tend to pull away from the teeth. If left ignored, the damage can reach into the bones and supportive tissues of the mouth, leading to a more serious condition, including tooth loss ...
This guideline covers assigning recall intervals between oral health reviews that are appropriate to the needs of individual patients.

It aims to improve or maintain patients quality of life and reduce morbidity associated with oral and dental disease. ...
As if potentially losing a limb isnt enough (see #2), you also risk losing your teeth from smoking. Smoking contributes to periodontis-a gum infection that destroys the bone that supports the teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults.. Quitting smoking cuts cardiovascular risks. Just 1 year after quitting smoking, your risk for a heart attack drops sharply. Within 2 to 5 years after quitting smoking, your risk for stroke may reduce to about that of a nonsmokers. If you quit smoking, your risks for cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, and bladder drop by half within 5 years. Ten years after you quit smoking, your risk for lung cancer drops by half.. If you need help in quitting smoking, book an appointment with our doctors today!. ...

Methods This study pooled individual data from the 2008 Behavioural and Risk Factor Surveillance System and state-level data from the US Census Bureau. The Behavioural and Risk Factor Surveillance System collected information on demographic characteristics (age, sex, race/ethnicity and marital status), socioeconomic position (education and annual household income) and tooth loss, which was self-reported on a 4-point scale (none, 1 to 5, 6 or more but not all, and all teeth). Income inequality at state level was measured with the Gini coefficient, based on household income for 1979, 1989 and 1999, respectively. Two-level ordered logit models with individuals nested within states were used to test the association of state Gini coefficient at different lag periods with tooth loss after adjustment for state median household income and individuals characteristics. ...

The procedure of dental care has evolved and has improved by leaps and bounds. There is not just one but many surgical procedures that have come up which gives us a smile makeover. Although, Dental Care has changed there are still many of us who have to deal with Tooth Loss. Some suffer from tooth loss at a very early age because of accident or bad eating habits and some start losing it at a later age. Accident is not the only reason to suffer from tooth loss. Tooth loss occurs due to various gum diseases such as Tooth Decay, Gingivitis or Periodontal Diseases. Dentures and Bridges were the options available treatment options but now we have another and much better treatment option of Dental Implant. Dental Implants are replacement teeth. They have the capacity and the capability to provide a strong base to the permanent teeth. They are also made in such a way that they give an appearance of natural looking teeth.. Before we get into the procedure lets see what is the advantage of undergoing a ...
New research sheds light on the correlation between tooth loss and an early death, it has been announced. According to a study carried out by the Oral Health Foundation, losing five teeth by the age of 65 could be a sign of dying early.. Physical stress and poor health often manifests in the mouth before anywhere else in the body, hinting at conditions that may become apparent later on. A direct link between the retention of teeth and a number of serious conditions has now been established. These include cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.. The study, published in Periodontology 2000, discovered that people with a full set of teeth at the age of 74 are more likely to live to see their 100th birthday than those with gaps. Bacteria in the mouth can cause problems in other parts of the body if it gets into the blood stream and blocks coronary arteries.. Dr Nigel Carter, of the Oral Health Foundation, said: There are many reasons why somebody can lose their teeth, it could be down to ...
Results: The sample consisted of 161 participants (4012 teeth in total, 3988 after exclusion of third molars), 80 women and 81 men, with a mean age of 48.0 ± 14.6 in women and 47.7 ± 12.5 in men. There were no significant differences in smoking status between men and women. Oral clinical data revealed similar gingival inflammation (BI) and number of sites with a periodontal probing depth (PPD) ? 5 mm among men and women. However, oral hygiene (PI) differed between men and women, with women having better oral hygiene (p < 0.01). Tooth loss increased from the front to the molar regions. A significant risk for tooth loss was associated with decreasing educational level. Compared to advanced education, individuals with no school graduation showed a significantly higher risk for tooth loss in women (OR = 3.2, p = 0.02) and men (OR = 3.6, p = 0.03). Age ? 50 years significantly predicted tooth loss in men only (OR 2.2, p = 0.01 ...

Our dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. An implant is a new tooth made of metal and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth. Its composed of two main parts: One part is the titanium implant body that takes the place of the missing root, and the second part is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented on top of ...
Background: Certain risk factors such as tobacco use, diabetes, genetic variations on the IL1 gene, and other inflammatory conditions are hypothesized to predict tooth loss in patients treated in a large medical center. Tooth loss trends are hypothesized to be greater in patients with more risk factors. Methods: DNA samples for 881 individuals were taken from the Dental Registry and DNA Repository at University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. Clinical data for all 4137 subjects in the registry were also available. SNP genotyping was performed on the samples for IL1α (rs1800587) and IL1β (rs1143634). IL1 positive status was determined as having one or more of the recessive alleles for either SNP. Tooth loss status was determined based on dental records and data gathered for age, sex, ethnicity, and self-reported medical history. Various statistical analyses were performed on the data including genetic association analysis by the PLINK software, chi-square, Mann-Whitney U, and ANOVA tests to
The research was carried out in accordance to the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System which is a method of telephone survey used by various health departments. In total 76,292 participants were questioned over the telephone. All participants were over 19 years of age.. Out of the 76,292 participants, those who reported tooth loss also reported some level of depression and anxiety. The research has also shown that depression and tooth loss were more common in men as compared to women. The data obtained from the research clearly showed that there is a relation between tooth loss and depression or anxiety disorders.. ...
As it was mentioned before, dental implants serve as tools to replace a tooth or multiple teeth, sometimes even entire dental arches. One of the main reasons why people lose teeth in adulthood is tooth decay, also known as caries. Tooth decay occurs as a result of bacterial overgrowth in the mouth. These bacteria make up the natural microflora of the oral cavity and have important physiological roles, some of which are still unknown today.. However certain environmental factors make a more than perfect niche for these bacteria, which results in their overgrowth. Bacteria form a biofilm on the surface of teeth called dental plaque. During their metabolism they produce organic acids, which contribute to the decay of teeth through the dissolution of their mineral content. If the tooth decay progresses to the innermost part of the tooth, the pulp tissue, it can result in tooth loss.. Another important cause of tooth loss is periodontal disease (gum disease). This is also due to bacterial overgrowth, ...
Periodontal disease (also known as periodontitis and gum disease) is a progressive disease which affects the supporting and surrounding tissue of the gums, and also the underlying jawbone. If left untreated, periodontal disease can result in loose, unstable teeth, and even tooth loss. Periodontal disease is in fact the leading cause of tooth loss in adults in the developed world and should not be taken lightly.. Periodontal disease begins when the toxins found in plaque start to attack the soft or gingival tissue surrounding the teeth. This bacterium embeds itself in the gum and rapidly breeds, causing a bacterial infection. As the infection progresses, it starts to burrow deeper into the tissue causing inflammation or irritation between the teeth and gums. The response of the body is to destroy the infected tissue, which is why the gums appear to recede. The resulting pockets between the teeth deepen and, if no treatment is sought, the tissue which makes up the jawbone also recedes causing ...

Invisible aligners are the perfect choice for correcting crooked teeth. Disproportions in the arrangement of the teeth give an unpleasant look. Any kind of abnormalities in the alignment of the teeth makes difficult in cleaning, brushing or flossing the mouth. Unclean teeth cause many serious problems such as gum infection, tooth decay, tooth loss, chewing problems, etc. By rectifying your teeth with invisible aligners, you can easily avoid all such devastating tooth problems. These are modern new age aligners which are transparent and can correct a series of tooth problems such as cross bites, under bites, overbites, irregularities of teeth, spacious teeth s, overlapping teeth s, protruding teeth s, crowded teeth and so on ...
Although your teeth feel as if theyre rigidly set in the jawbone, theyre actually capable of movement. In fact, dynamic tooth movement is an essential mechanism in good dental function - it allows your teeth to adapt to changes brought on by age and other factors.. The periodontal ligament is a key component in this mechanism. This elastic tissue actually holds the teeth to the bone through tiny fibers that attach to the tooth root on one side of the ligament and to the jawbone on the other. The teeth move within the ligament to maintain contact with both adjacent and opposing teeth in response to changes like the normal wear that occurs due to aging.. This is a primary reason why a missing tooth should be replaced by an artificial one as soon as possible. Because of the tendency just described, teeth next to the space left by the missing tooth will begin to move (or drift) into the space at an accelerated rate. The end result is teeth out of their normal position and range, which could ...
If you have lost any of your teeth, you no doubt realize there are consequences to living without them: Your smile may not look the way you want it to; eating, speaking and intimacy may be more difficult; and your self-confidence may fade. Though serious, these are not the only impacts. There are hidden consequences of losing teeth that affect not only your appearance but also your health.. Importantly, a loss of jawbone inevitably follows tooth loss. Bone needs stimulation to maintain its form and density. In the case of the jawbone, that stimulation comes from the teeth, which make hundreds of fleeting contacts with each other throughout the day. The small stresses produced by these contacts are transmitted to the bone, prompting it to regenerate constantly. When a tooth is lost, the stimulation it provided disappears. In just the first year of tooth loss, there is a 25% decrease in bone width. This is followed over the next few years by an overall 4 millimeters decrease in height. If enough ...
Its estimated that 85% of all pets have periodontal disease by the time they are 3 years of age. Periodontal disease is a progressive disease of the supporting tissues surrounding teeth and the main cause of early tooth loss.. Periodontal disease starts when bacteria combine with food particles to form plaque on the teeth. Within days, minerals in the saliva bond with the plaque to form tartar, a hard substance that adheres to the teeth. The bacteria work their way under the gums and cause gingivitis-inflammation of the gums. Once under the gums, bacteria destroy the supporting tissue around the tooth, leading to tooth loss. This condition is known as periodontitis. Gingivitis and periodontitis make up the changes that are referred to as periodontal disease. The bacteria associated with periodontal disease can also travel in the bloodstream to infect the heart, kidneys, and liver.. A professional veterinary dental cleaning is the only way to remove tartar from the teeth and under the gum tissue ...
Trauma can cause loss of teeth in a variety of ways. Teeth can be knocked out from trauma, such as a child falling off her bicycle and onto her face. Frequently however, trauma can affect the teeth in ways that do not manifest until months or years later. Root fracture may not be apparent until some time later when infection develops. Sometimes, after teeth have been traumatized, they can be treated and appear to be doing well until many years later when root resorption becomes apparent. This occurs when the body turns against itself and causes cells to eat away at the root surface, often allowing bone to grow into the defect that has been created.. Trauma of a more pernicious order can also affect the dentition. Significant defects of the jaw bone, in addition to teeth, can occur as a result of trauma. This may be following surgery to remove a tumor from the mouth and/or jaws, or secondary to external trauma such as an automobile accident, other forms of blunt trauma or ballistic wounds. ...
The goal of restorative dentistry is to preserve your natural teeth as much as possible. In cases where we cannot save the natural teeth, full dentures might be necessary. Most people do not know that a missing tooth can cause serious damage to your mouth. When a tooth a missing, the rest of your teeth will begin to shift, causing your teeth to become misaligned. When teeth become misaligned, they are more difficult to clean, and decayed teeth are susceptible to periodontal disease which can lead to tooth loss. Missing teeth also put extra stress on your remaining natural teeth because you dont have as much surface area to chew with ...

You maintain your overall health by eating healthy foods and drinks. Foods which are rich in vitamin are considered good for your overall health and also for your dental health. However as we grow we change our eating habits and other day-to-day habits. We start consuming acidic foods which directly impact the enamel and stains our teeth. We start consuming soft drinks which again has a direct effect on our enamel. Apart from the food that we consume, we also feel that doing certain things such as smoking, piercing our lips or tongue and drinking excessive alcohol makes us look cool. However the result is different. Smoking leads to tooth loss, gum disease and many other problems related to dental health. With piercing oral infections become common and also leads to chipped tooth. The effect of piercing does not just stop with these two problems. It might also lead to gum recession which eventually leads to tooth loss ...
A deep cleaning is necessary when you have a more severe form of gum disease that may affect both your gum and bone support. This is called Periodontal Disease. Untreated Periodontal Disease can lead to tooth loss. Typically, a patient has tartar, plaque and bacteria build up under the gums that must be removed in the presence of local anesthesia. Once a patient has had a deep cleaning, they must be seen by the Dentist three to four times a year to monitor their gums and bone support. However, in some cases, Periodontal Disease has deteriorated the bone support in the mouth to the point where Periodontal Surgery is necessary as a means to prevent tooth loss. If that becomes the case, our practice has the capability to address you Periodontal Surgical needs as well.. ...
Background: Periodontal disease, a common disorder of the tissue surrounding and supporting the teeth, is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Periodontal infection by oral microorganisms may have systemic effects and has been associated with several types of cancer. However, its association with liver cancer has only been examined in two prospective studies, both of which had very small number of liver cancer cases (n , 20).. Methods: We examined the association of tooth loss, as a proxy measure of periodontal infection, with primary liver cancer incidence and chronic liver disease mortality in the Alpha-Tocopherol, Beta-Carotene Cancer Prevention (ATBC) study, a prospective cohort of male Finnish smokers (n = 29,096). Number of permanent teeth lost was assessed at study baseline (1985-1988). We used Cox proportional hazards models to calculate multivariable-adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). As a sensitivity analysis, we conducted a nested case-control study to ...
Of course, theres much more to oral hygiene than just a bright smile. Take tooth decay, for example: Despite all our efforts, its still the single most common chronic disease of childhood, affecting two-thirds of U.S. kids aged 12-19. It is 5 times more common than asthma, 7 times more common than hay fever - and its almost totally preventable. Several other diseases commonly affect the mouth, including periodontitis (gum disease), which, if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss and possibly systemic (whole-body) inflammation.. In many ways, the health of the mouth mirrors the health of the body. Diseases in other parts of the body often cause symptoms we can observe in the mouth; likewise, oral maladies (like tooth loss) not only reduce an individuals quality of life, but may also lead to problems in other areas. Thats another reason why maintaining good oral hygiene is so important.. ...
Another objective was to investigate whether individuals with periodontitis were at greater risk of having an event of ischemic stroke or death during a follow-up period of 17 years.. For this purpose, people aged 60 and over and living in the Karlskrona area, the only location where SNAC monitored dental services, are included in the study.. Scientists examined the presence of calcifications and the bone level around the teeth.. Being able to conduct such long-term follow-up studies is rather unique, explains Dr Wallin Bengtsson.. Periodontitis increases the risks of older people dying, when compared to people without periodontitis.. Those with the disease are more likely to have calcification of the carotid artery,. Calcification of the carotid artery is linked to cardiovascular diseases. Periodontitis increases risks for ischemic heart diseases over time.. ...
Proper senior dental care becomes more of an issue as you age. There is a widely believed myth that as we age tooth loss is inevitable, this is just not true! Proper oral care will keep us smiling well into those golden years. If you take care of your teeth they can and will last you a lifetime.. As we age we do need more specialized dental care. It is important to know what to look for. Some of the common dental issues affecting seniors are:. 1. Gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is an infection of the gum tissue that supports the teeth and is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults with an even greater impact on proper senior dental care . Most adults show some signs of gum disease.. Gingivitis. Gingivitis is an early stage of gum disease that is reversible with good oral hygiene and professional treatment. Gingivitis is caused by the bacteria found in plaque. Symptoms of gingivitis include red, swollen gums and possible bleeding when you brush. If you have any of these symptoms, see a ...
Whichever technique is appropriate for your case, rest assured that we will ensure that we make the procedure easy and as pain-free as possible.. Removing teeth is often considered a good option in the short term when people present with severe pain. When they are in this situation it is often difficult to think rationally.. It is very important to note that if one tooth is removed you could lose the function of two or more teeth. That is because the teeth below that one being removed have nothing to bite against. If there are already other teeth missing this can lead to the remaining teeth becoming overloaded which will then start a downward spiral leading to multiple teeth being lost. It is also very common after tooth loss to see the adjacent and opposing teeth start to drift around.. ...
Forest Smiles - The Best Dentist in Lynchburg, VA. The lack of one or more teeth is very common not only among adults, but also among a large number of children and therefore represents a significant problem for modern dentistry. Edentulism s a syndrome and condition characterized by a loss of permanent teeth in the dental arch of the lower or upper jaw. This is not a disease, but a state that occurs as a result of dental diseases and diseases that affect the supporting tissue, bones or other tissues found in the oral cavity.. What are the most common reasons that lead to tooth loss? In the first place - caries. It is food to point out that if we dont take measures in the beginning the damage with affect not only the dental crown, but also the root and even the bone and the only way to eliminate this problem at that moment is tooth extraction. Periodontal disease is another reason that leads to edentulism. This disease leads to loosening and swaying and eventually to the loss of teeth. ...

Damage If the Dental crown or filling comes loose or maybe fractures, the teeth will get very vulnerable Therefore, as soon as they are removed from their locations, theres an increased chance of disease. The present teeth, in addition to the persons overarching oral health, will be at risk for harm from infections.. Severe Oral Pain. A throbbing Pain across the gums can indicate oral health problems like gingivitis, gingivitis or disease. Temporary pain might not be something serious, but when the pain lasts past a day, then you ought to visit dentist whenever possible.. Cosmetic Swelling. If swelling occurs, dont be afraid to see dental practice immediately. There are great chances where swelling may also cause oral pain.. Knocked Out Tooth. If a Person gets his teeth completely pumped out, he must attempt and manage it as small as he can. He must set the tooth back into the socket and then bite down it with moist gauze..

The word periodontal means around the tooth. Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that support the teeth. Plaque is a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva. If plaque is not removed, it turns into calculus (tartar). When plaque and calculus are not removed, they begin to destroy the gums and bone. Periodontal disease is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums.. Four out of five people have periodontal disease and dont know it! Most people are not aware of it because the disease is usually painless in the early stages.. Not only is it the number one reason for tooth loss, research suggests that there may be a link between periodontal disease and other diseases such as, stroke, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and increased risk during pregnancy. Researchers are determining if inflammation and bacteria associated with periodontal disease affects these systemic diseases and conditions. Smoking also increases the risk of periodontal ...

Tooth loss at any age can be a traumatic experience. Perhaps you had severe decay at an early age and lost your teeth to extractions. O
People sustain edentulism due to a range of reasons. The most common explanations are inadequate dental hygiene. This contributes to plaque growth, which gradually develops into decays. When left untreated, this bacterium spreads to other features, thus leading to an adverse ailment. Physical traumas can also cause teeth loss, as when excessive pressure is exerted on dentin, it detaches from its root socket.. Dentists administrate a clinical evaluation to assess patients oral issues. It includes checking the number of missing teeth & severity of their case. Then, they proceed to take digital scan images & mold impressions to fabricate pontics. They also prepare the site to make it suitable for restoration. This process is known as recontouring and involves removing some enamel to make room for a replacement.. During a second appointment, the practitioner uses the finished dental work to check for any fitting issues. Bridges in Philips takes about three to four weeks to arrive, and at that time ...
Think you already know all about dentures? Answer the following questions, and see whether your understanding of false teeth is more true than false.. True or False: About one-quarter of the U.S. population has none of their own teeth left by the age of 65.. Answer: True. The technical term for the complete loss of all permanent teeth is edentulism, and its a big issue, affecting 26% of adults between 65 and 74 years of age. Without treatment, many individuals not only suffer a reduced quality of life, but also risk nutritional problems and systemic health disorders. Dentures are a reliable and affordable way to replace their missing teeth.. True or False: Tooth loss has nothing to do with bone loss.. Answer: False. Far from being a fixed, rigid substance, bone is actually growing and changing constantly. In order for it to stay healthy, bone needs constant stimulus. For the alveolar bones of the jaw, this stimulus comes from the teeth; when they are gone, the stimulus goes too, and the bone ...

More than 5 million teeth are knocked out in the United States every year. If you find yourself or your child in this situation, dont panic. With the proper steps taken the tooth can be saved and as good as new in a few hours.. The first step you should take if your tooth is knocked-out is to retrieve the tooth by the crown, the part that is exposed above the gums in the mouth. Try not to touch any attached tissue that is normally below the gums. Rinse the tooth if necessary, but do not use soap, scrub, or dry the tooth. If possible try to put the tooth back in the socket, but never force it. If the tooth wont rest comfortably in the socket then placing the tooth between your cheek and gums is the next best option. Another option is to place the tooth in a glass of milk. It is important that the tooth stays moist, although water is not a good option. No matter the case it is important to see your dentist at Dental365 as soon as possible. Teeth that have been knocked out have a higher chance of ...

Dr. Ciuffreda has been recognized as an Americas Top Dentist and NJ Top Dentist for General Dentistry and an Americas Best Dentist for Family Dentistry.. Bridges are one treatment option for the restoration of missing teeth (or failing teeth that require extraction) and are comprised of multiple crowns joined together. Teeth on either side of the space are prepared (reduced) which serve as the anchoring points for the restoration. As with single crowns, bridges are most often fabricated of either special all-porcelain materials (such as zirconia) or porcelain fused over high gold content metal (PFM).. All-porcelain bridges typically provide the best cosmetic result as they allow for a degree of translucency as with natural tooth structure, and also eliminate the possibility of the dark line effect at the gum line that may sometimes occur with PFM bridges. . Dr. Ciuffreda reviews an x-ray of all bridges prior to final placement and cementation to ensure that they are perfectly fitting ...
