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 ...

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 ...
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.. ...
05) compared to other Latinos. The multilinear regression showed that both age and gender (p<.05), percentage of untreated decayed teeth (p<.001), number of replaced missing teeth (p<.001), and attachment loss (p<.001) were significant. Compared with the other Latino immigrants in our sample, Mexican immigrants have significantly better oral health status. This confirms the epidemiologic paradox previously found in comparisons of Mexicans with whites and African Americans. In this case of oral health status the paradox also occurs between Mexicans and other Latinos. Therefore, when conducting oral health studies of Latinos, more consideration needs to be given to differences within Latino subgroups, such as their country of origin and their unique ethnic and cultural characteristics ...
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.
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. ...
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.. ...
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 ...

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:. ...

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 ...
Today, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released their report "Advancing Oral Health in America," which emphasizes the inextricable link between a persons oral health and overall health.. The Health Resources and Services Administration, an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, asked the IOM to conduct this study on the state of oral health care in the U.S. We thank the IOM for their insight, expertise and partnership on this important topic. Millions of Americans lack access to oral health care services. This has to change. Secretary Sebelius and the leadership of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recognize the seriousness of this issue and in 2010 instituted a cross agency Oral Health Initiative.. The IOM outlines several timely recommendations to HHS in this report: integrating oral health with primary care, promoting evidence-based preventive services, improving oral health literacy, and enhancing oral health care delivery, particularly in underserved ...

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While you may see many people sporting pink bracelets, clothes, or even hairstyles, we have chosen to raise awareness by writing about the connection between oral health and breast cancer.. More than 200,000 women are in the U.S. are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. With a breast cancer diagnosis comes a great amount of health challenges, including issues with oral health. Many breast cancer patients are at risk for dental caries, pain, and xerostomia. These conditions can seriously affect oral health.. Xerostomia is a form of dry mouth that can cause serious decay to teeth. We all need saliva in our mouth because it helps to wash away bacteria that will become acid and erode enamel. Suffering from dry mouth allows the bacteria, acid, and plaque on teeth to cause decay much more quickly and severely. This makes it much easier for cavities to form.. Chemotherapy is the main cause for most oral health issues during cancer treatment. The drugs used ...

In response to that dearth of state data, the National Oral Health Surveillance System (NOHSS) was established at the turn of the 21st century as a first step in helping oral health programs in state health agencies meet expectations that they routinely document population needs and program impact, for example, to track progress toward Healthy People 2010 objectives, for allocation of funding from the Maternal and Child Health and Preventive Health and Health Services block grants, to justify allocation of discretionary resources, or to evaluate programs or policies. In 1999, at the annual meeting of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), its members approved 7 oral health indicators for surveillance (Table). That same year, CSTE also released standard definitions for 73 chronic disease indicators (5) that had been approved conceptually 2 years earlier, including several of particular interest to the dental community, for example, incidence of and mortality from cancer of ...

March 17, 2017 -- Why is the caries rate higher for Latino children compared with other kids the U.S., and what strategies can help lower caries prevalence? To develop a better understanding of these complex issues, researchers conducted focus groups with Latino parents to explore factors that influence the oral health of their children and develop strategies for improving it.. The researchers identified gaps in parental knowledge about caries etiology and prevention, and they provided guidelines on how practitioners, educators, and insurers can improve communication with this growing community. Their research was published in BMC Oral Health (March 2, 2017).. "Development of more oral health services with providers who are sensitive to the needs of the population are long-term goals," the authors wrote.. The study was led by Kimberly K. Walker, PhD, from the University of South Florida, and conducted with her research colleagues from various institutions, including Indiana University-Purdue ...
Advocacy Committee Chair, Minnesota Oral Health Coalition. Last October, a research brief from the American Dental Associations Health Policy Institute reported some grim news about Minnesotas Medical Assistance dental program. This report revealed that, not only are the base rates for childrens dental services the lowest among all states in the nation (adult rates were fourth from the bottom), but that the decline over that past ten years was the most rapid of any state, a 43.4% drop. This comes as no surprise to those of us involved in dental access programs as weve seen oral health drop off the radar as a health care focus over the past decade or more. Stalled reimbursement rates, loss of adult dental services, and declining concern about our states chronic dental crisis have together reflected a shocking pattern of indifference for the role of oral health among state health program recipients.. What can be done? The answer may lie buried deep among last years legislative products. ...

Myth 1: "Baby Teeth Cavities Are Not A Big Deal. They Are Just Baby Teeth, And They Are Going To Fall Out.". Reality: It is true that none of your childs 20 "baby teeth" or "primary teeth" will survive into their teenage years. But if you want the 32 permanent teeth to come in healthy, shiny and straight, its absolutely essential to take care of their predecessors. Healthy baby teeth are part of your childs health and smile for life, because the healthy roots of baby teeth help guide permanent teeth into place as they grow.. If a baby tooth has decay, it can pass the bacteria to the permanent tooth below, causing it to decay before it even breaks the surface. Not only does ...

Cavity prevention is a major concern for parents. But children face periodontal disease and other dental problems. Heres how you can maintain your childs oral health.
Henry Clover, director of dental policy at Simplyhealth Professionals, said, "There is evidence to support that personalised biofeedback, delivered using reports such as DEPPA for patients, is more likely to trigger the emotional response required in order that behaviour change can occur than traditional methods. The earlier that we can educate young patients on what they can do at home to support dental care plans, the better their oral health will be in the long term.". On an individual patient basis YDEPPA supplies valuable guidance to inform the development of a care (treatment) plan. YDEPPA reports allow clinicians and patients to monitor the success of care plans over time.. YDEPPA is very quick to complete, comprising just 14 questions. Reports can be either printed in hard copy and given to patients, or e-mailed to them with consent.. YDEPPA protocols were developed using Adult DEPPA, the Oral Health Assessment (OHA) and The Oral Wellbeing Assessments (OWA) as the starting point. Both ...
Periodontal disease affects nearly a quarter of people diagnosed with diabetes and gum disease may cause blood sugar to rise. Fortunately, practicing good oral hygiene and having regular professional cleanings can help lower your A1C. Learn about steps for maintaining oral health for diabetes.
The influence of oral health on quality of life and influence of other diseases on oral health is a soft area to be focussed on. Also the prospective cures or concepts that can be implemented in near future are discussed under this topic. Knowledge of oral diseases obtained from biopsy records provides more accurate data about the diagnosis and oral health of elderly patients. These indicators thus support the development of specific health policies for the prevention and treatment of oral and maxillofacial lesions that affect this population. Oral pathologists generally do not provide direct patient care. Rather, they diagnose cases using clinical, biochemical radiographic, and microscopic or other examinations, and do biopsies in consultation to dentists and other physicians providing patient care. Collecting the information necessary to determine the cause of a patients complaint is accomplished by determining the patients medical and dental history and performing a physical examination. ...

Background and Objectives: Diabetes is fast gaining the status of a potential epidemic in India with more than 62 million diabetic individuals currently diagnosed with the condition. Biochemical analysis of saliva would be of great biomedical importance, since saliva is very easy to collect offering a cost-effective approach for screening of large populations, and could represent an alternative for the patient whose blood is difficult to obtain when compliance is a problem. The objective of the study was to correlate blood glucose level and salivary glucose level with oral health status among type 2 diabetic and non-diabetics ...

The aim of the present study was to identify factors in oral health and also diabetes-related and socio-economic components that could be associated with the subjects health-related quality of life (HRQL). One-hundred-and-two randomly sampled type 2 diabetic and 102 age-matched and gender-matched non-diabetic subjects from the same residential area were studied cross-sectionally using the SF-36 questionnaire. Although the HRQL profiles were similar in nature, the control subjects indicated a more favorable health status in their HRQL scores than did type 2 diabetic subjects. Certain oral health factors contributed to deterioration of the patients HRQL. Multiple regression analyses including both groups were used to determine variables explaining variance in the different HRQL domains. Dissatisfaction with teeth and mouth, feeling of dry mouth and poor financial status contributed to about one-fourth of the explanation of the variance in all health domains. Having diabetes played an important ...

Thanks to treatments like chemotherapy and radiation, your chances of surviving cancer are greater than ever. These treatments, however, often produce unwelcome side effects. Treating throat or oral cancer, for example, could damage your mouths salivary glands or bone.. Saliva is essential to oral health, providing antibodies to curb the growth of disease-causing bacteria and neutralizing acid, which can erode enamel. But salivary glands damaged during cancer treatment may not be able to produce enough saliva. The resulting "dry mouth" creates an environment conducive to bacterial growth and elevated acid levels.. You can help reduce the effects of dry mouth during your treatment (and after, if the damage is permanent) by drinking more water or by using substances that stimulate saliva. Cutting back on acidic foods and beverages will also help lower your mouths acidity. And be sure to keep up daily oral hygiene and regular dental visits.. The more ominous threat to oral health during cancer ...
Dental diseases progress over time as different and more complex bacteria adhere to the teeth and the gums, eventually causing a variety of teeth problems. For example, poor oral health can contribute to gingivitis (gum disease), periodontitis (disease of the bone supporting teeth), bad breath, tooth decay, dental pain, loss of teeth, unhealthy smile and loss of self-confidence. Systemic diseases can affect the health of the mouth either directly or through common medications used to treat or manage the systemic conditions. Similarly, poor oral health could be an early indicator of how other body organs are functioning. As a result, your dentist may be the first to suspect certain health problems. So, where is the connection?. Here are a few health conditions and lifestyles that affect the body and how they may be linked to oral health.. Diabetes: In the mouth, diabetes increases the likelihood of developing dry mouth, gingivitis, periodontitis, and other infections. Individuals with ...

Keeping your mouth clean is important because bacteria in the mouth can lead to, or negatively influence the development of these diseases (in addition to negatively influencing your love life!). If bacteria are not removed by thorough cleaning and visits to a dentist, these bacteria can multiply and spread throughout the body. This is especially problematic for people with suppressed immune systems.. Poor oral health can also cause pain and affect a persons well being. The use of certain medications or consumption of alcohol to cope with pain can affect oral health because these factors, as well as smoking and eating sugary foods, are associated with dental problems. Poor overall health can contribute to poor eating habits that may influence nutritional intake, causing further oral health problems. Sounds like quite a cycle doesnt it?. As you can see, there are many ways that a clean mouth and overall health are related, so make it a priority to take care of your teeth and gums. The American ...

Tooth decay is an infectious disease that can be transmitted from mothers to their infants, making oral health for pregnant women a critical public health issue (1, 4). Problems with oral health and access to dental care disproportionately affect people of color, low-income families, those with public or no insurance, and those in rural areas (2, 3, 5). For example, children in these groups-especially young children-are less likely to receive routine dental checkups, which are critical for preventing tooth decay (1, 2). In California, the disparity in oral health between low- and higher-income children is among the worst in the nation (4). In addition, California children with public insurance are more likely to have oral health problems not only when compared to those with private insurance, but also when compared to those who are uninsured; this may be due to the states low reimbursement rates for providers, along with other barriers to accessing care (4) ...
Background: Endodontic treatment of immature permanent teeth with necrotic pulp, with or without apical pathosis, poses several clinical challenges. Regenerative endodontics is a promising alternative for the treatment of such immature necrotic permanent teeth. Aim: To assess the regenerative potential of young permanent teeth with necrotic pulps with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and blood clot using radiographic and clinical methods. Settings and Design: This was an experimental, in vivo study comparing the two groups. Materials and Methods: Immature necrotic permanent teeth (n = 14) in patients who belonged to the age group of 10-12 years were selected and divided into two groups. Group 1 was treated by conventional revascularization with blood clot and Group 2 with revascularization using PRF. Follow-up was done for 6 months. Standardized radiographs were analyzed for the periradicular healing and apical closure, and clinical analysis was performed using mobility index as compared to baseline ...
November is Diabetes Awareness Month to bring attention to the disease and the millions of people affected by it. Wed like to join this effort from the perspective of your oral health.. Frequently, we emphasize the connection between oral health and overall health. And that connection can work both ways. A person with diabetes is an example of this connection. If you have diabetes, youre at a higher risk of developing gum disease. And, according to the American Diabetes Association, research suggests "serious gum disease may have the potential to affect blood glucose control and contribute to the progression of diabetes.". Whats the connection?. To be clear, diabetes doesnt cause gum disease and gum disease doesnt cause diabetes. But if you have one, you are likely to have the other, in comparison to others who dont have diabetes or gum disease. To explain a bit further, if you have diabetes, your ability to fight infection is reduced. Gum disease is a type of infection in your gums and ...
