Introduction Spending the right amount of time engaged in appropriate home oral care is undoubtedly essential to helping minimize the risk of caries and periodontal disease.
An individual who visits the dentist twice a year for an oral exam and dental Verma panel recommendation for prevention of will spend approximately two hours per year in the dental chair. The time for that same person to brush and clean between his or her teeth each day might be estimated to be around 30 hours per year.
Considering the amount of time that should be devoted to daily oral hygiene, it is important to understand the scientific evidence that supports home oral care recommendations made to patients. Inthe ADA Council on Scientific Affairs identified three aspects of home oral care that dentists should discuss with their patients: The general and personalized recommendations were developed in accordance with a rapid evidence assessment methodology,1 meaning that the evidence examined was derived from existing systematic reviews Data on File.
Lifestyle considerations comport with current ADA policy. General Recommendations for the Prevention of Caries and Gingivitis 1 Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste While a seemingly simple statement, the guidance for brushing twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste weaves together a number of discrete components.
Toothbrushing frequency Review of the scientific literature, along with guidance from governmental organizations and professional associations found sufficient evidence to support the contention that twice-daily brushing, when compared with lower frequencies, was optimal for reducing risk of caries, gingival recession or periodontitis.
Understanding that the use of surrogate measures decreases the certainty with which a recommendation can be made, the available systematic reviews found a brushing duration of two minutes was associated with bigger reduction in plaque than brushing for a single minute.
Using flossing as shorthand for interdental cleaning can also be problematic in that patients may be unaware of alternative devices that may be more pleasant or effective for them. A meta-review, which included the available devices developed for this purpose i. However, the conclusion of numerous systematic reviews on the effect of the macronutrient content of the diet, specifically of sugar, is that there is an association between sugar intake and caries.
The current recommendation goes a step further than its predecessor in articulating the duality of the dental visits.
Personalized Recommendations for the Prevention of Caries and Gingivitis Dental care includes actions to reduce disease risk, as well as the formulation and execution of a treatment plan when disease is present.
Design a home care regimen with specific recommendations for oral hygiene. Offer direction concerning lifestyle changes. This includes detailed suggestions that can help patients make decisions about dental hygiene practices and products.
Patients may look to their dentists for guidance and recommendations to help discern among the plethora of home oral care products and mechanical devices that lay claim to oral health benefit.
Systematic reviews found that mouthrinses containing an antimicrobial effective amount of a fixed combination of four essential oils eucalyptol, menthol, methyl salicylate, and thymol or cetylpyridinium chloride, and toothpastes containing Triclosan or stannous fluoride, were associated with decreased risk of gingivitis and periodontal disease.
Beyond the general and personalized recommendations above, there are specific ADA policies that address lifestyle considerations to help reduce risks to oral health. Four policies are discussed below: DTC orthodontic treatment services allow consumers to order teeth straightening kits directly from a supplier and often rely on patient-supplied impressions or photographs.
Unlike impressions and radiographs taken by an experienced, licensed dental professional, patient-supplied impressions may be more likely to result in user-error, which can ultimately lead to an improper fit of orthodontic appliances.
A poor fit can cause the gum tissue to be impinged or stripped, and may also increase the chances of tooth loss or misalignment; or problems with the temparo-mandibular joint TMJ. In addition to assuring proper fit, dental professionals can provide pre-treatment dental evaluations and take radiographs.
These play an important role in planning treatment, and identifying underlying problems, such as periodontal disease, which can impact both oral health and orthodontic results.BackgroundThis study was undertaken to determine whether use of the direct renin inhibitor aliskiren would reduce cardiovascular and renal events in patients with type 2 diabetes and chronic.
