Mothers with poor oral health ‘can increase likelihood of tooth loss in children’

Tue

Mothers with poor oral health 'can increase likelihood of tooth loss in children'Parents looking to limit the chances of their child needing emergency dentistry could be interested in the findings from a new study.

According to the British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF), mothers with poor oral health could pass on the same issues to their children in later life.

The research, conducted by scientists in New Zealand, revealed that 45.1 per cent of youngsters whose mothers had dental health problems suffered from severe tooth decay.

Strengthening the belief that oral health is affected by genetic and environmental factors, the research consisted of over 1,000 children born in 1972 and 1973.

"We must target parents to educate their children in the hope they can better their own oral health and pass the message on to future generations," remarked Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the BDHF.

The findings emerged after previous research established a link between women with gum disease and difficulty with conception.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800618419-ADNFCR

Maintaining healthy gums ‘limits need for dental implants’

Thu

Maintaining healthy gums 'limits need for dental implants'People who take time to ensure their gums are healthy could limit the risk of needing dental implants, experts believe.

With previous research identifying a link between gum disease and wider health problems, it is vital to ensure teeth and gums are in good condition.

Gums that appear red and swollen may need expert attention and could lead to conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, health website Care2 has advised.

People with pink and firm gums should ensure they remain in the best condition possible to avoid developing problems in future.

The website also urged people to take part in regular dental care, as it can limit the chances of contracting kidney disease.

Researchers have suggested that inflammation caused by gum disease and tooth loss could be a causal factor for the condition.

Meanwhile, Colgate has advised people to be aware of the symptoms of gum disease in a bid to reduce the risk of contracting it.

Bleeding gums, bad breath and gum recession are among the telltale signs for the problem and those experiencing the issues should speak to a dental professional immediately.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800529139-ADNFCR

People who avoid dentist ‘more likely to need emergency dentistry’

Thu

People who avoid dentist 'more likely to need emergency dentistry'People who avoid attending regular dental appointments are more likely to have decaying teeth which could lead to emergency dentistry, a report has suggested.

Research conducted by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) found that people who did not visit the dentist had more than three times the level of tooth decay than those who attend regular check-ups, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Entitled Dental Attendance Patterns and Oral Health Status, the report also revealed those participants who avoided dental health visits had on average 1.6 more missing teeth due to decay.

The chances of contracting gum disease were also significantly increased by people who do not attend oral health check-ups – which could result in emergency dentistry procedures.

Professor John Spencer of AIHW's dental statistics and research unit said: "Those seeking regular dental check-ups were more likely to have dental decay treated promptly, which led to less untreated decay, fewer extractions and more teeth restored."

Menopausal women advised to ‘get more dental check-ups’

Mon

Menopausal women advised to 'get more dental check-ups'Post-menopausal women have been advised to go to the dentist more often to avoid needing emergency dentistry.

Medical experts have urged them to attend more dental appointments after a recent study revealed regular brushing and two annual check-ups may not be enough to prevent tooth loss in older women.

Researchers from the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine and the Cleveland Clinic discovered that women taking medication to treat osteoporosis had high levels of dental plaque on their teeth.

Of the women displaying high levels of bacteria, all of them met the recommended requirements for oral health.

Biodentical Hormone Health contributor Anna Rushton recommended that women who are going through the menopause should increase the number of check-ups they receive to four a year.

Ms Rushton also advises post-menopausal women to clean their teeth immediately after eating anything sugary.

Meanwhile, About Dental Care recommends people should attend dental check-ups every six months so any oral health problems such as gum disease and cavities are spotted early by medical professionals.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800504490-ADNFCR

Emergency dentistry news: Flossing prevents tooth loss

Thu

Emergency dentistry news: Flossing prevents tooth lossGood oral health maintained by flossing may reduce the likelihood of undergoing emergency dentistry and limit the chances of a stroke, new research has suggested.

Japanese researchers have found that the possibility of having a stroke is linked to tooth loss occurring as a result of poor dental hygiene.

The study, conducted at Hiroshima University and reported on the Cosmetic Dentistry Guide website, found that people with less than 24 of their own teeth were faced with a 60 per cent higher chance of suffering from a stroke than those who had more natural teeth.

According to the website, a number of serious illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease can be linked to dental health and people with unhealthy teeth and gums are also at greater risk of requiring emergency dental procedures.

Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Foundation, also attributes a healthy diet to better dental hygiene.

He said: "A diet rich in vitamins, minerals and fresh produce can help to prevent gum disease, a disease which can in turn, pose more significant risks to your overall health."ADNFCR-2621-ID-800483300-ADNFCR

Writer is delighted by dental implant

Mon

A writer has praised his dental implant.A writer has said that he has been delighted by how his dental implant treatment has turned out.

Tim Jepson of the Telegraph said he opted to have one fitted after losing a molar when he bit into a prune.

He explained that he went for this kind of treatment over a bridge because dental implants are strong, reliable and durable and do not compromise any surrounding teeth.

The fitting of the titanium equipment and the mock tooth took around 40 minutes and Mr Jepson insisted that he didn't feel a thing.

"I am delighted with my implant. I can't feel it, it's rock solid and the crown is better-looking than the tooth that was there before," he concluded, urging anyone who has been wondering about whether or not to have implants to "bite the bullet".

WorlDental.org – the website of Dental Health magazine – recently said that people who are struggling as a result of age-related tooth loss could benefit from having dental implants.

Could dental implants help Charlie Sheen after tooth loss?

Tue

Cosmetic dentistry could be on the cards for Hollywood star Charlie Sheen.Actor Charlie Sheen could require a cosmetic dentistry operation after a source claimed his teeth have fallen out.

The Two and a Half Men star is reportedly in rehab after hosting a party at his Los Angeles home with a number of adult film actresses including Kacey Jordan.

She revealed that the actor was complaining throughout the bash about his "porcelain" teeth and claimed he was thinking about having them replaced with gold ones.

"All his teeth have fallen out from partying … [He] said he had to get gold teeth. Most of his teeth fallen out, he wouldn't say why," Ms Jordan was quoted as saying.

Sheen, who later said that he is "fine" despite his party lifestyle, could also opt for dental implants if he wants to remedy his tooth issues.

This type of cosmetic dentistry operation sees an artificial replacement securely fitted in a patient's mouth with the aid of a pre-drilled socket in their jaw bone.

People with dental implants ‘could also need dementia treatment’

Wed

Should people who need extensive dental implants also be monitored for Alzheimer's?People who have dental implants for extensive tooth loss should also be monitored for later development of dementia, new research has suggested.

According to a study carried out in Japan and published in the journal Behavioral and Brain Functions, elderly people whose teeth fall out could be at an increased risk of developing problems such as Alzheimer's disease.

Those aged 65 or over with few or no teeth, whether they had been replaced by dental implants or not, were much more likely to have experienced some memory loss.

Dr Nozomi Okamoto, who led the research, said infections in the gums which cause tooth loss could also enter the bloodstream and cause inflammation in the brain, leading to the death of neurons.

According to the Alzheimer's Society, there are currently 750,000 people with dementia in the UK, a figure that will rise to one million by 2025 as a result of an ageing population.

Dental implants ‘can improve a patient’s life’

Thu

Dental implants can improve people's lives. A top dentist in the US has been speaking of the benefits of dental implants for those with missing teeth.

Dr Steven A Koos from Chicago was attending a conference in which new technologies in oral healthcare were discussed.

Among them were implants, which Dr Koos said can have a huge impact.

"Every day I see the difference of how dental implants can improve a patient's life, restore their smile and confidence and give people normal dental function again to enjoy food," he enthused.

Dr Koos explained that they are better than traditional bridgework and can also replace removable dentures entirely, resulting in a better fit.

Last month, WorlDental.org – the website of Dental Health magazine – said people struggling as a result of age-related tooth loss as well as from accidents could benefit from having dental implants.

These are anchored into the jaw bone, which then grows around them for extra stability.

Dental implants ‘could help with age-related tooth loss’

Dental implants could be useful in treating age-related tooth loss.People who are struggling as a result of age-related tooth loss could benefit from having dental implants.

WorlDental.org – the website of Dental Health magazine – said the chances of losing teeth increase as people get older, resulting in problems with eating and speaking, as well as loss of self-esteem.

"The good news is that a dental implant will improve your cosmetic appearance and your oral health," it stated.

However, the portal explained that dental implants could also be the ideal solution for people who have lost teeth as a result of accidents.

WorlDental.org recommended seeking a professional in the field of cosmetic dentistry to have them fitted, as they should then be both durable and comfortable, fitting in as naturally as possible with other teeth.

Earlier this month, rapper Professor Green revealed in an interview with the Sun that he is to get dental implants soon after he was left unsatisfied by previous bridge work.
