oral health
Oral Health
  • More than teeth and gums!
  • Also includes supporting tissues, hard and soft palate, mucosal lining of the mouth and throat, tongue, lips, salivary glands, chewing muscles, and upper and lower jaws

Oral Health

. . . these tissues allow us to speak and smile; sigh and kiss; smell, taste, touch, chew, and swallow; cry out in pain; and convey a world of feelings and emotions through facial expressions

 The essence of our humanity!!

Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General

oral diseases
Oral Diseases
  • Progressive and cumulative – become more complex over time
  • Dental caries (tooth decay) is the single most common chronic childhood disease – 5 times more common than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever

Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General

oral diseases6
Oral Diseases
  • Over 50 percent of 5- to 9-year-old children have at least one cavity or filling, and that proportion increases to 78 percent among 17-year-olds.
    • These are improvements compared to a generation ago!

Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General

oral diseases7
Oral Diseases
  • Poor children suffer twice as much dental caries as their more affluent peers, and their disease is more likely to be untreated.

Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General

dentally uninsured
Dentally Uninsured
  • Uninsured children are 2.5 times less likely than insured children to receive dental care and are 3 times more likely to need it!
  • For every child without medical insurance, there are at least 2.6 children without dental insurance.

Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General

vulnerable populations
Vulnerable Populations
  • Those who suffer the worst oral health are found among the poor of all ages, with poor children and poor older Americans particularly vulnerable
  • Members of racial and ethnic minority groups experience a disproportionate level of oral health problems

Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General

why the disparities
Why the disparities?
  • There are many factors that influence vulnerability to oral disease
    • Socioeconomic factors
      • Lack of resources to pay for care
      • Inability to take time away from work
      • Lack of transportation
      • Physical disability or other illness that limits access
    • Lack of understanding and awareness of the importance of oral health

Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General

why the disparities11
Why the disparities?
  • Cultural values influence oral health and well-being and can play an important role in care utilization practices and in perpetuating acceptable oral health and facial norms.

demonstrated relationships between oral health and systemic diseases
Demonstrated relationships between oral health and systemic diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes
cardiovascular disease and oral health
Cardiovascular Disease and Oral Health
  • Association has been demonstrated between periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease and research continues to determine the extent to which the association is causal or coincidental
  • Two theories: Bacterial and C Reactive Protein
cardiovascular disease and oral health16
Cardiovascular Disease and Oral Health

Gum disease may harm the heart, too

http://www.heartcenteronline.com/myheartdr/home/research-detail.cfm?reutersid=3018

Theory: the Porphyromonas gingivalis bacterium can actually migrate from the mouth to the heart and cause inflammation in arteries that promotes atherosclerosis

c reactive protein
C Reactive Protein

C Reactive Protein Test

http://www.heartcenteronline.com/myheartdr/common/articles.cfm?ARTID=376

CRP is an inflammatory marker — a substance that the body releases in response to inflammation. High levels of CRP in the blood mean that there is inflammation somewhere in the body.

c reactive protein18
C Reactive Protein

The researchers theorize that people living with a chronic infection such as gum disease may produce higher levels of C Reactive Protein, which could place them at higher risk of heart attack.

Perinatal Health

Preterm Birth

Preterm birth, resulting in babies born too little and too soon, is a major cause of morbidity today. Evidence indicates that infections can be major risk factors in preterm birth.  Case-control studies point to an association between periodontal infection and increased rates of

preterm birth. This article summarizes evidence to date, and the strategies the ongoing intervention studies are using to answer the fundamental clinical question:  can periodontal therapy reduce the risk of preterm birth?

This is part of a P& G mini course on the relationship between oral health, pregnancy, and postmenopausal osteoporosis.

other systemic links
Other systemic links
  • Many systemic diseases and conditions have oral manifestations – may be the initial sign of clinical disease
  • Pharmaceuticals and other therapies commonly used in treating systemic conditions can cause oral complications

diabetes and periodontal disease
Diabetes and Periodontal Disease
  • Effective treatment of periodontal infection and reduction of periodontal inflammation is associated with a reduction in glucose blood levels.

Diabetes and Periodontal Disease
  • Persons with diabetes are at greater risk for periodontal diseases
  • There is now some thought that untreated periodontal disease in persons predisposed to diabetes makes them more likely to develop the disease

what works
What Works?
  • Hearing from their medical provider that they need to see the dentist!
  • Hearing from their medical provider that their oral health affects their diabetes and their general health!
  • Repeated messages if necessary
  • Same day quick initial visit to dental – easier to come back if they have had that initial meeting!
  • Escorted by medical staff to dental to make appointment
  • Established referral system that all staff know and use – may take several PDSA cycles to develop!
  • Tracking referrals – will be available electronically in PECS 3.0!!!
