Disease relevance of Oral Health


Psychiatry related information on Oral Health


High impact information on Oral Health

  • The benefits of estrogen replacement therapy on oral health. The Leisure World cohort [11].
  • CONCLUSIONS--These findings suggest that among well-controlled individuals with type II diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance, few appreciable differences are evident in oral health [12].
  • The aim was to verify that vitamin E is actually enriched in the tissue, which could have beneficial effects on oral health [13].
  • Ammonia production from urea by ureolytic oral bacteria is believed to have a significant impact on oral health and the ecological balance of oral microbial populations [14].
  • Effectiveness (Oral Health Impact Profile, OHIP-20) and cost were measured up to one year post-treatment [15].

Chemical compound and disease context of Oral Health


Biological context of Oral Health


Anatomical context of Oral Health

  • The high-molecular-mass salivary mucin MG1, one of two major mucins produced by human salivary glands, plays an important role in oral health by coating the tooth surface and by acting as a bacterial receptor [26].
  • Alkali production from urea by bacterial ureases in the oral cavity is thought to have a major impact on oral health and on the physiology and ecology of oral bacteria [27].
  • The conflicting role played by these lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced monocyte functions in the inflammatory process is a further intrigue in the mechanism by which nicotine compromises the oral health [28].
  • A study has been conducted to assess the oral health status and need for dental treatment among elderly Cape Coloreds resident in homes for the aged in the Cape Peninsula of South Africa. This paper describes the prevalence of diseases of the mouth with special reference to denture-induced lesions and white lesions of the oral mucosa [29].
  • Types of illicit drugs abused were associated with oral health sensations reported (P < 0.001). 'Ecstasy' abusers more frequently reported chewing (P < 0.001), grinding (P < 0.001), and TMJ tenderness (P < 0.001) compared to non-'ecstasy' abusers [30].

Associations of Oral Health with chemical compounds

  • The comparison in time revealed that most of the differences in oral health, observed in 1973 both between sexes and between the different fluoride areas, had disappeared by the time of the 1982 examination [31].
  • Therefore, the serum and saliva cholesterol concentrations and oral health were analyzed in a group of healthy adults (n = 139; 64 men and 75 women; 34.2 +/- 5.2 yrs) [32].
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess human unstimulated whole saliva components during pregnancy, to determine the relation, if any, between pregnancy and oral health, particularly total protein concentration, alpha-amylase activity, sialic acid content and calcium and phosphate concentrations were evaluated [33].
  • Although other commonly used mouthwashes (e.g. chlorhexidine) have been reviewed in other articles in this Supplement, this article concentrates solely on data supporting essential-oil mouthwash use in these oral health areas [34].
  • Chewing gums may be suitable vehicles for the delivery of xylitol (X) and chlorhexidine acetate (CHX), both of which can aid oral health [35].

Gene context of Oral Health

  • Data are presented to suggest that oral health is altered in the presence of heart, cerebrovascular, liver, and renal diseases, cancer, COPD, diabetes, pneumonia, and influenza [36].
  • PURPOSE: We performed a dental survey of epilepsy patients to examine their oral health by statistical means and to provide a guide for the dental treatment of these patients [37].
  • WHO Global Oral Data Bank, 1986-96: an overview of oral health surveys at 12 years of age [38].
  • A priori hypothesized associations between GCPS or JDL summary scores and self-report of general health, oral health, oral health-related quality of life, or dysfunctional pain, which were measured by means of the Multidimensional Pain Inventory, were confirmed in a convenience sample of clinical TMD patients (n = 378) [39].
  • Perception of general and oral health in White and African American adults: assessing the effect of neighborhood socioeconomic conditions [40].
