The etiology, epidemiology, prevention, and treatment of dental diseases are examined in this chapter. Emphasis is placed on the prevention of caries and periodontal disease because control of the amount and severity of these two major bacteria-related conditions will greatly affect oral health.

EPIDEMIOLOGY The epidemology of periodontal disease is one of the most important challengesThere are 3 main type of chronic destructive periodontal diseaseInflammatory disease is the commonest form,usually called “peridontitis” or “marginal periodontitis”.In this, destruction of alveolar bone by the formation of subgingival pockets.

basic. The Need For Epidemiology “Periodontal [gum] diseases, including gingivitis and destructive periodontal disease, are serious infections.” 1 This statement from a professional dental organization reflected the dominating belief of the last half century that periodontal conditions are caused by bacteria.

20 This bacterial dogma had several consequences. Connections between the diseases in the periodontium and general health are described in detail. Even if periodontal disease is certainly not a generally accepted cause of death, periodontal treatment may obviously save lives.

Dental hygiene professionals need the very best scientific and clinical knowledge at their fingertips to effectively assist in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease. Periodontology puts the needs of hygienists center stage, providing a detailed and brilliantly illustrated reference for daily practice, and a wealth of knowledge to underpin successful diagnosis and s: 1.

A new Expert Consult website includes the entire, fully searchable contents of the book, and takes learning to a whole new level with content updates, videos, a drug database, and much hensive coverage describes all aspects of periodontics in a single volume, including periodontal pathology, the etiology of periodontal diseases, the 3/5(2).

Prevention of periodontal diseases. The information which is gathered from epidemiological studies in a given population serves as the basis for planning the strategies to prevent the periodontal diseases. Three strategies have been suggested to prevent periodontal disea 29, Population strategies; Secondary preventive strategies.

Epidemiology of Periodontal Diseases* This paper was prepared by the Research, Science and Therapy Committee of the American Academy of Perio-dontology and is intended for the information of the dental profession.

It represents the position of the Academy in regard to the current state of knowledge about the epidemiology of periodontal diseases.

Epidemiology data on periodontal disease can be used to create a treatment and prevention plan for the disease. However, in Indonesia, such data is still lacking. The aim of this critical review is to discuss the historical context of global periodontal disease epidemiology, highlight key activities and findings over the past decade in global periodontal epidemiology, and comment on how changes in the practice of epidemiology may affect global periodontology over the coming decade.

A firm understanding of periodontal pathogenesis is important for the hygienist. This book clearly outlines vital concepts in immunology, genetics and destruction and restoration of periodontal tissues. Innovations and new scientific evidence in these areas are clearly described and evoke new approaches to etiology, diagnosis and treatment.

guidelines for the treatment of periodontal disease in older adults Periodontal infection and inflammation interact with many other ailments experienced by older adults, and they likely diminish oral function, reduce quality of life, imperil nutrition and increase the patient's risk of developing several chronic systemic diseases.

This allows the design of individual and community health strategies for prevention, treatment, and control of periodontal disease, in addition to understanding the levels of demand among people needing periodontal care.

In Brazil, there are great many studies related to dental caries in the child population (3, 4). Caries and oral mucosal and periodontal diseases are the major cause of oral health problems. They are prevalent in all ages and demographic and socioeconomic groups.

Irrespective of geographic location in the world, both males and females are affected from the condition. Dental caries’ etiology has four main factors: bacteria, time, susceptible tooth surface, and fermentable carbohydrates. Periodontal disease (PD) is an inclusive term for the inflammatory condition of gingiva (gingivitis) and/or periodontium (periodontitis).

The disease process progresses from gingivitis to periodontitis. It may be a manifestation of a systemic condition (diabetes mellitus, collagen diseases, leukemia or other disorders of leukocyte function, anemia, or vitamin deficiency). Epidemiology of periodontal disease is the study of patterns, causes, and effects of periodontal diseases.

Periodontal disease is a disease affecting the tissue surrounding the teeth. This causes the gums and the teeth to separate making spaces that become infected. Pinkbook: (Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases) Printer friendly version pdf icon [12 pages].

Currently, two principal forms of destructive periodontal disease are recognized – chronic periodontitis and aggressive periodontitis – but their distinction in epidemiologic studies has been rather problematic because of substantial overlap of their primary features.

An international expert consensus developed a classification of periodontal diseases in that is still used today. 3 Classifying periodontal diseases enables clinicians to create a framework for appropriate diagnosis and detection of etiology and risk factors.

Through this understanding, oral health professionals can direct appropriate. Poor periodontal health has been positively correlated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) in numerous observational studies; however, it is not clear if poor periodontal health causes CVD. Large measures of association reported in early case-control and cross-sectional studies evaluating this association have been attributed to study design and inadequate control of confounding; these.

'Etiology and Pathogenesis of Periodontal Disease' represents a new concept in periodontology with its pronounced focus on understanding through knowledge rather than presenting the present valid answers.

Connections between the diseases in the periodontium and general health are described in detail. Epidemiology is the study of health and disease in populations and of how these states are influenced by biology, heredity, and physical and social environment, as well as personal behavior.

Advances in research over recent years have led to a fundamental change in our understanding of the periodontal diseases. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a set of inflammatory conditions affecting the tissues surrounding the teeth.

In its early stage, called gingivitis, the gums become swollen, red, and may bleed.

In its more serious form, called periodontitis, the gums can pull away from the tooth, bone can be lost, and the teeth may loosen or fall out. Objectives: This study examined the reasons for tooth loss in an adult population with dental insurance. Methods: Computerized records were used to identify Kaiser Permanente Dental Care patients aged years who had an extraction during (n = 1,).

A random sample of dental charts were reviewed. Results: Slightly more than 51 percent of the teeth were extracted for periodontal.The role of epidemiology in the study of periodontal diseases BRIAN A. BURT Models of disease are collections of theory on its etiology and progression, based on research as far as possible but often including some untested hypo- theses.

As such, these models have to be modified from time to time as new research findings come out.Periodontal disease can progress quickly without treatment, so it's essential to take a diagnosis of periodontal disease seriously. Top Periodontal Disease Causes.

Periodontal disease is linked to a buildup of plaque around your gum line. Plaque is a sticky substance created by the bacteria and mucus in your mouth. [1].
