Objectives: Longitudinal studies considering social disparities in the utilization of dental services are scarce. Repeated measures should be accounted for by the use of appropriate statistical methods. The purpose of this study was first to describe the patterns of less frequent dental attendance (less than once a year) over time from the age of 65-70 in Norwegian and Swedish 1942 cohorts. Second, this study estimated the influence of predisposing, enabling and need-related social predictors using marginal model with robust variance estimators and random intercept model, RIM, to account for the clustered structure of the repeated observations. Third, the study aimed to compare the estimates of associations between social predictors and less frequent dental attendance derived from marginal and random intercept models.. Methods: In 2007 and 2012, all residents born in 1942 in selected counties of Norway and Sweden were invited to participate in a ...

Regular dental care linked to reduced stroke incidence  Regular dental care linked to reduced stroke incidence
These data emphasize the importance of inflammation rather than just the level of attachment as being the main determinant of risk," the authors wrote.. The good news? Participants who visited the dentist at least once per year were significantly less likely to have periodontal disease and had a lower risk for ischemic stroke than those who only visited the dentist when they had a problem. Because of these findings, the authors suggested that regular dental visits may be able to lower stroke risk.. "To our knowledge, this would be the first U.S. study to report the independent role of regular dental care in prevention of incident ischemic stroke in a relatively elderly population," they wrote. "This is further validated by the fact that dental care was associated with lower burden of periodontal disease.". Tipping point. The authors acknowledged several study limitations, including only one periodontal assessment at the outset of the ARIC study and the lack ...

Oral hygiene encompasses everything that you need to do to keep your teeth, gums, surrounding tissue and your entire mouth clean and healthy. It is comprised of daily maintenance and regular dental visits to ensure you can keep your natural teeth for the rest of your life.. But no matter how well you keep your teeth and gums clean by following your brushing and flossing routine daily, hardened dental plaque called calculus can still build up in the gum line. If it's not removed, bacteria will invade the area and lead to all kinds of dental problems.. Our dental hygienist is trained to eliminate calculus and plaque in your teeth. We will also perform other evaluations after your teeth have been thoroughly cleaned to ensure that there are no signs of tooth decay or periodontal problems.. The ADA recommends that you get dental cleaning twice a year, or even more if you have teeth and gum problems. If it's time for your ...

Dental Checkup  Dental Checkup
The goal of preventative care is to keep teeth healthy and cavity from the start, and to catch oral health conditions early on, when they are easiest to treat. Early detection and intervention allow for the best possible treatment outcome. When a condition is caught early enough, treatment methods are more straightforward and cost-effective. For example, gum disease, in its earliest stages, is referred to as gingivitis, which can be reversed as easily as improving your oral hygiene and coming in for periodontal cleanings. Your Kendall dentist will use diagnostic films and a visual inspection to determine the best course of treatment for any conditions present. Your dentist will also perform a teeth cleaning to remove any plaque that is too difficult to reach with your toothbrush or floss. Plaque is a bacterial film that continuously grows in your mouth, when unchecked and untreated, causing tooth decay and gum disease. Controlling plaque is the best way to keep your mouth healthy and your smile ...

In addition, the dentist may examine an individual's bite, noting any changes in the tissues and the way that teeth fit together. Specific questions may be asked such as, "Do you have problems when you are chewing and eating?" "Does you experience pain and tenderness when swallowing, speaking or moving your tongue or jaw?". Because tissues in the mouth are sensitive, it is common for individuals to experience some abnormalities. For example, many patients suffer from canker sores or herpes. Yet, the duration of a mouth sore is often the linchpin of it all. As a rule, if a sore does not heal or if it lingers for more than two weeks, it's a good idea to see your dentist. While he/she may opt to reevaluate the sore after some time, a biopsy might be necessary to determine if the sore is cancer.. ...
