Treatment of periodontal disease for glycaemic control in people with diabetes mellitus - The Cochrane Library - Simpson - Wiley Online Library

DentalHygieneInterest's insight:

We’ve known for over 20 years now that uncontrolled diabetes can put one at risk of periodontitis.Type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus are affected by this risk. Helping keep glycemic levels under control by way of keeping inflammation under control is a win win! Keeping up with periodontal maintenance visits and home care should be an integral part of one's overall plan to achieve wellness.

High-risk periodontal pathogens contribute to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis

High-risk periodontal pathogens contribute to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis | dental hygiene interest | Scoop.it
Periodontal disease (PD) is generated by microorganisms. These microbes can enter the general circulation causing a bacteraemia. The result can be adverse systemic effects, which could promote conditions such as cardiovascular disease. Level A evidence supports that PD is independently associated with arterial disease. PD is a common chronic condition affecting the majority of Americans 30 years of age and older. Atherosclerosis remains the largest cause of death and disability. Studies indicate that the adverse cardiovascular effects from PD are due to a few putative or high-risk bacteria: Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans , Porphyromonas gingivalis , Tannerella forsythia , Treponema denticola or Fusobacterium nucleatum . There are three accepted essential elements in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis: lipoprotein serum concentration, endothelial permeability and binding of lipoproteins in the arterial intima. There is scientific evidence that PD caused by the high-risk pathogens can influence the pathogenesis triad in an adverse manner. With this appreciation, it is reasonable to state PD, due to high-risk pathogens, is a contributory cause of atherosclerosis. Distinguishing this type of PD as causal provides a significant opportunity to reduce arterial disease.

Oral Health Care for Residents in Long-Term Care Facilities

...."The oral health screening should also be used to determine the type of daily mouth care needed and the level of assistance required to achieve that care. Care staff should monitor all residents’ daily mouth care on a regular basis. Residents who can effectively clean their own teeth should be provided with a toothbrush and fluoride-containing toothpaste. Those with removable dentures should be given a container for dry storage of the denture when they are sleeping and an appropriate brush for cleaning the denture. All dentures, both partial and complete, should be labeled with the resident’s name. Those requiring assistance with daily mouth care should receive appropriate assistance from a personal support worker, care aide or nurse for cleaning the teeth, mouth and dentures at least twice daily, but preferably after each meal."
