Gum diseases constitute one of the major global oral health burdens, and periodontitis remains a major cause of tooth loss in adults worldwide. Severe periodontitis exists in 5-20% of adult populations, and most children and adolescents exhibit signs of gingivitis. When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to periodontitis and untreated periodontitis will eventually result in tooth loss and may increase the risk of stroke, heart attack and other common health problems. There are several solutions to this problem which are as follows:

(1.) to identify high-risk forms of gingivitis that progress to periodontitis

(2.) to detect disease activity and predict treatment to prevent the diseases effectively

(3.) to create awareness by providing information on the effects of integration of periodontal health as a part of the health care program designed to promote general health and prevent chronic diseases

Actinobacillus Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans is the causative agent of localized aggressive periodontitis and endocarditis. So to prevent periodontitis, these bacteria should be inhibited. Several articles are found on these bacteria about losing its viability when the cultured media required to support bacteria is prepared and sterilized by autoclaving while microwave sterilization of growth medium alleviates inhibition of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans. One difference between autoclaved and microwaved media is that the autoclaved media are darker brown in color, which is known to be due to the Maillard reaction products such as some aldehydes formed in between the reaction which are responsible for inhibition of growth of bacteria.

So using these concept , we can say there are many spices which are abundantly found in nature as well as economical and whose chief chemical constituents are aldehydes ... For example…...

...improvement in the glycemic control. In HbA1c test (glycosylated hemoglobin) the degree of change is frequently about 0.9 to 1.0%. The study also showed that there is an increase in insulin resistance due to chronic periodontitis or systemic viral and bacterial infection, particularly those colonized with Gram negative bacteria such as P. gingivalis, Tannerella forsynthesis, and Prevotella intermedia that occurs from the accumulation of the plaque and calculus on the teeth surface and this will cause poor glycemic control which would contribute to the cycle of hyperglycemia and non enzymatic irreversible glycation. In patients with diabetes especially the ones with periodontal disease the blood level of C- reactive proteins (pro inflammatory cytokines) , IL-6 and TNF- increase . When stimulated by periodontal pathogen , Monocytes from subjects with diabetes produce 24 to 32 times increase level of TNF , than do monocytes from subjects without diabetes. translocation and phosphorylation of insulin receptor inhibit by TNF which is an antagonist to the cell surface insulin receptor substrate that will lead to the inhibition of insulin action and intracellular glucose transport causative to insulin resistance. This explains why a diabetic patients with periodontitis have a worsening of glycemic control and may also explain why periodontal therapy that lead to reduce the serum level of the inflammatory mediator and decrease the inflammation locally enhancing of the......

Ang periodontics ay isang sakit na “ swelling of the tissue in the gums” ito ay bilang tugon sa bacterial biofilms na nakadikit sa ibabaw ng mga ngipin.7 Gingivitis and periodontitis are two common stages of gum disease. These periodontal disease are cause by thin, sticky, transparent film on a tooth surfaces called plaque. The difference between gingivitis and periodontitis is that- gingivitis is the stage of gum disease which affects only the gum tissue that causes the gums to bleed easily when brushed but there is no occurrence of the tooth loss while periodontitis is the result of the untreated gingivitis. It is the serious stage of the gum disease because it involves active loss of the alveolar bone or the tooth sockets around the teeth which will then lead to loosening and succeeding teeth loss. These gum disease can be treated as long as you give it proper attention and care. Good oral hygine can also prevent these from happening. Regular visits to the dentists is a very important preventive measure.8 Ang gingivitis at periodontitis ay dapat ituring na mga seruosong impeksiyon na kung hindi maaagapan ay maaring maging sanhi ng pagkalagas o pagkawala ng mga nipin ng isang tao.

Complications * Premature rupture of membranes, rupture of intestines, uterus or eyeballs * Periodontitis * Mitral valve prolapse * Failure of surgical wounds properly healing * Early-onset arthritis Treatment/Maintenance Currently there is no cure for Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, only management. It is important that each person establish a network of clinical physicians who are very familiar with the disease and know how to properly handle their case to avoid misdiagnosis. Physical therapy is extremely important in order to strengthen loose joints and muscles. Conditioning should be a daily routine. Wearing braces around certain joints can also help to stabilize loose and painful joints. Surgery to repair or tighten connective tissue is not usually recommended since the skin does not often heal properly (Ehlers-Danlos......

In addition, catechin and other phenolic antioxidants quell reactive oxygen species that are root causes of inflammation in gingivitis. © 2006. CALIFORNIA RAISIN MARKETING BOARD Dental Caries - Background Decay-causing Streptococcus mutans are normal mouth inhabitants. These bacterias can convert sugars and starches from foods into acids. Plaque is formed when bacteria, acid, food debris and saliva combine in the mouth. This sticky mixture accumulates on teeth within 20 minutes after eating. Plaque that remains on the teeth forms tartar. Both plaque and tartar irritate the gums, resulting in gingivitis and, ultimately, periodontitis. The number one strategy for keeping teeth healthy is good dental hygiene, including frequent brushing and flossing and use of fluoride products. Antioxidants Food choice is also a strategy for keeping teeth healthy. Diets that build strong teeth and enamel are critical to teeth resistant to dental caries. While some experimental and animal studies suggest that fruits and some starchy staples are cariogenic, this is not supported by epidemiological data. Several studies show that high intakes of starchy staple foods, such as vegetables and fruits, are associated with low levels of dental caries. 4,5 In fact, a large survey of 2-to 5-year-old children showed that eating fewer than 5 servings of vegetables and fruits more......

Health Promotion Among the Hispanic Population

...One-fourth of boys and one-fifth of girls, ages 6 through 11 years are already considered overweight, 40% of adult men and 52% of adult women are considered obese, compared to white men at 34% and white women at 33% of the population (Escarce et al., 2002). If this trend continues the chances of future health issues will increase dramatically. Compared to the national average diabetes in the Hispanic population is growing (Escarce et al., 2002). This leads to complications such as, kidney disease, peripheral nervous system damage and blindness. Only 30.4 % of Hispanics have health insurance (CDC, 2014). This puts the burden of health care costs on an increasingly troubled system. Health disparities that exist for this group are periodontitis, HIV, high teenage birth rates in15-19 year olds, which are two times greater than whites, insufficient, or no health insurance, increased blood pressure, and decreased vaccination status for influenza, as well as obesity and diabetes (CDC, 2011). Health promotion is defined as the ability to help people, communities and society change and move toward a state of improved health (Edelman, Kudzma & Mandle, 2013). The Hispanic/Latino group as a whole, define their health in terms of the family and cultural identification. Hispanics have strong gender roles. Machismo stresses virility and manliness. Seeking treatment, testing or counseling is frowned upon in this culture (CDC, 2014). New immigrants often avoid seeking help, so......

According to an article written in the New England Journal of Medicine there is currently a theory that pathogenesis of the disease and an attempt to understand how to body responses have changed have helped in causing the change in the treatment of RA to become more aggressive and prevent more damage to the body. However, with the changes to the more aggressive therapy there are still short fails of achieving consistent remission on normally requires the patient to stay on a medicine treatment for the rest of there life. While once again a cause has not been discovered yet there is an understand on how environmental factors like smoking, periodontitis and gut microbiome and cause epigenetic modification the can lead to either causing genes to become susceptible and lead to loss of tolerance of self-protein which can cause a response to be initiated by T-cell and B-Cell compartments and can cause lymphoid tissues or bone marrow to attack and because of such there is a localization of the inflammatory response that occurs in joints possibly by poor understood mechanisms that could involve some sort of microvascular, neurologic, biomechanical or other tissues specific pathways.

Health Promotion Among Divers Populations

...average annual income for a Hispanic family is around $26,000 compared to the average annual income for a white, non-Hispanic family being $60,000. (Enchautegui, 2012) The sociopolitical aspect of the Hispanic population has often times been considered to be more socially conservative than Americans. This is true when it comes to issues such as abortion, however, when it comes to most issues such as homosexuality and lifestyle living, Hispanics are more liberal than Americans. This may be why Hispanics tend to let health issues go without being treated, or continue to not eat healthy or exercise regularly. (Escarce, 2002) Health Disparities for Hispanic Population Among the Hispanic population the prevalence of obesity, diabetes, periodontitis and HIV continue to grow with diabetes being the largest of the disparities. Healthy People 2020 defines Health disparities as, “a particular type of health difference that is closely linked with a social, economic, and/or environmental disadvantage.”("Hispanic Populations," 2014) Conclusion As the Hispanic population continues to rise in this country, it is extremely important for nurses and physicians to work together to provide heath promotion catered to the Hispanic community. Secondary prevention, which focuses on individuals who are experiencing health problems or illnesses as well as who are at risk for developing complications with the disease process, is an ideal approach to effective teaching with the......

...have a greater percentage of high-risk occupational jobs than non-Hispanic, white workers. All these factors create socioeconomic sociopolitical barriers to health. In looking at the health status of the Hispanic/Latino population for 2015, 10.3% are consider in poor health, (CDC). The top 5 leading causes of death are; cancer, heart disease, unintentional accidents, stroke and lastly diabetes, (CDC). The rate of obesity in Hispanic females from 2007 to 2010 was found to be much higher than non-Hispanic white females (CDC). Diabetes was found to be higher within both the Hispanic and African American adults compared to other ethnic groups, (CDC). Another health disparity found is a greater percentage of Hispanic adults with periodontitis and HIV infection compared to white, non-Hispanic adults, (CDC). Most of these health issues are chronic issues due to poor diets, lack of regular physician check-ups, no health education, and lack of regular exercise. As a growing ethnical race, changes are needed to promote good health and create change for well-being overall. In the last paragraph the narrative will move on to discussing an approach to promote health. The approach the author of this paper feels would be most affect in health promotion is teaching primary prevention. Primary prevention is teaching that take place before an illness or disease transpires. This is done with health promotion and education as a preventative measure to help achieve the goal......

Coronal Polish

...Mea Norton Claudia Perkins DA 83 21 April 2014 Final Paper Coronal polish is used to clean the surfaces of teeth of tartar and stain. Throughout all my internships coronal polishing has been present. Although all my internships were all drastically different, it allowed for a variety of patients. My first internship was a periodontal office, and showed the severe effects of gingivitis and periodontitis. My second internship was an orthodontics office and showed the improvements in teeth shifting into place as well as the need for brushing and flossing techniques to avoid decalcification spots. The last place I interned at was Camp Pendleton and with all the active duty patients their was a variety of different cases to coronal polish. In the first internship office, Periodontics, coronal polishing was utilized in their appointment, disease control and deplaque which they abbreviate as “DC”. During the “DC” appointments, the patient is checked to see how the are maintaining with their periodontal disease and oral hygiene. Being a speciality office, every patient had some form of periodontal disease, therefore their oral hygiene was very important to maintain. In these appointments I would start by asking the patient the frequency they brushed and flossed as well as what oral aids they were using. Following that I would coronal polish their mouth and then the Doctor would come in and check on their progress. In the second......

...felt on the day of discharge. However, when my 19 year-old female Hispanic neighbor, that was born and raised in Arizona, came over because she just learned she was pregnant and her new husband is a smoker. She is an aural learner and wanted to know as much as she could about smoking and what it could do to her, him, and the fetus. Primary prevention is the best choice for her in this instance and I provided her with websites that the two of them could look at and learn about smoking and what second hand smoke will do to others (Wexler, 2003). The Hispanic race has several health disparities than non-Hispanics do. Some examples are female adult obesity as opposed to white adults. The adult prevalence of diabetes, hypertension, HIV, periodontitis. Poor compliance of colorectal cancer screening between the ages of 50-75 years, and poor amount of recipients of flu vaccinations from six months old to adults. In 2009, if Hispanic adults were hospitalized as much as Asian and Pacific Islander adults were, there would have been 240,000 less hospitalizations and saved $700 million. Also, in 2010, Hispanic ages 18 to 64 years-old were unemployed as opposed to white, non-Hispanic adults. Lastly, in 2011, Hispanic adults didn’t finish high school and made less than the Federal poverty level compared to non-Hispanic adults ("CDC Disparities," 2013, p. 1). It was staggering to read the statistics within the past few years. Without proper education from school and a chance at a proper......

...this and to decide whether we have enough evidence to reject the null hypothesis is by considering what is called the P-value. This is a probability and its lies between 0 and 1. An event cannot occur if P=0 and it must occur if P=1. The P-value represents the probability of getting the observed results (or more extreme results) if the null hypothesis is true. A small P-value indicates that the results in the sample would be unlikely to arise if the null hypothesis were true; this implies that the null hypothesis is not true, and there is evidence to reject it. If we reject the null hypothesis, we describe the result as statistically significant. For Example, in my previous courses, when we did a study on thirty denture patients with periodontitis to determine the relationship between clinical probing of pocket depth and the connective tissue attachment. teeth were probed clinically by one investigator to determine attachment levels. These measurements were repeated by the second investigator using a dividing caliper and a millimeter scale with a Vernier. The null hypothesis that the difference between the clinical measurement and bench measurement is zero was satisfied. 2) Linear Regression Analysis: Simple regression and Multiple regression can be used to examine the causality between dependent and independent variables, that is, whether a change in variable a results in a change to variable b. Knowing there is a causal relationship will be extremely useful, especially......

Death to Tobacco

...tobacco use has increased greatly since the first Surgeon General’s report on tobacco was released in 1964. Tobacco use causes: * Cancer * Heart disease * Lung diseases (including emphysema, bronchitis, and chronic airway obstruction) * Premature birth, low birth weight, stillbirth, and infant death There is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke causes heart disease and lung cancer in adults and a number of health problems in infants and children, including: * Severe asthma attacks * Respiratory infections * Ear infections * Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) Smokeless tobacco causes a number of serious oral health problems, including cancer of the mouth and gums, periodontitis, and tooth loss. Cigar use causes cancer of the larynx, mouth, esophagus, and lung ("Tobacco Use," 2014, para. 1-4). Every year the writer has to have his primary care physician fill out a questionnaire to show if the health history of the writer has changed. Tobacco use is one of the questions. Based on this questionnaire is how the health insurance company gives discounts for the insurance provided for wellness and sick visits. Healthy People 2020 provides a framework for action to reduce tobacco use to the point that it is no longer a public health problem for the Nation. Research has identified a number of effective strategies that will contribute to ending the tobacco use epidemic. Based on more than 45 years of evidence, it......

Nd:YAG. Er:YAG. Diode. CO2. Per-imDlantitis. INTRODUCTION: Peri-implantitis is an infectious inflammatory diseasc associated with bleeding, suppuration and the loss of supporting bone around n[ctioning oss€ointegratedimplants. The etiopathogenesis of peri-implantitis is complex and related to a variety of factors that affect the peri-implant environment. Peri-implantitis c€n be influenced by three factors: l. Patient-related factors including systemic diseases (e.g, diabtes, osteoporosis) and prior dental history (periodontitis) 2. Social factors such as inadequate oral hygiene, smoking and drug abuse 3. Parafunctional habits (bruxism and malocclusion In addition to the above, iatrogenic factors such as faulty restorations, cement left following restoration delivery, and,/or loose components can also play a significant role in the development of peri- implantitis. The presence of gram-negative anaerobic biofilm on the implant surface has been implicated in etiology of peri-implantitis. Implants with the p€ri- implantitis reveal complex micro-biota encompassing conventional periodontal pathogansr. In addition to the dark pigmented, gram-negative anaerobic rods, other bacterial species are......
