Cavities are prevented with information:

 Much of dentistry that people know about these days is reactionary. For example, a person feels pain or a chipped tooth and they go to the dentist to find out that they will need a filling or root canal with a crown. Waiting this long has put this tooth or teeth in jeopardy situation to save it instead of a routine cleaning or filling. It could have been prevented or significantly reduced with knowledge about brushing frequency, technique, flossing, chemical attack with rinses/toothpastes, and time in a person's life with the external environment playing a large role. Daily oral care basics are needed, but people do have to change or add to their daily regiment on an individual basis. For instance, a person’s diet generally changes every five to seven years, this will modify care for your dentition, oral bone and gum health. Especially for those with health conditions that affect your immune system, glands, blood, saliva flow, gastro-intestinal tract, vitamin absorption, acid reflux, or sleep disorders. Diabetes is one of these conditions that have multiple affects on your body but also on your mouth. Many medications to manage the condition, disease, or side-effects of medications cause xerostomia. Xerostomia is dry mouth and people get this at different levels from not only medications but from our foods and drinks we consume. A considerable amount of a these factors are different per person and can change over the span of a person’s life. Incorporating the routine that a person needs to do for their own health is vital to prevent an infected tooth or gums. Who wants an infection in their mouth? Many don't realize that cavities are caused by bacteria that accumulate to levels that attack tooth structure and bone level. Those with health concerns are more at risk to dental problems, so daily care is more important. Just imagine if that bacterium is strong enough to attack the hardest surface in your mouth, then what can it do to the rest of your body. There is research to show there is a link between the bacteria in the mouth to the bacteria on the heart. So one can see that it is important to know this and it may motivate them to find out their oral environment status to ensure prevention is on track instead of fixing it after it breaks or hurts.
Thank you for your time,

Clean teeth and arthritis

Clean teeth can hold off arthritis: Scientists discover link between gum disease bacteria and early onset of the condition

  • Link between gum disease bacterium and onset of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Bacterium produces enzyme which reacts with residue of certain proteins
  • Body recognises these proteins as intruders, leading to an immune attack

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

Brushing your teeth well could help prevent arthritis, scientists claim.

Researchers found a link between the bacterium responsible for gum disease and earlier onset of rheumatoid arthritis, as well as faster progression and greater severity of the condition.

The bacterium produces an enzyme which reacts with the residue of certain proteins.

The body recognises these proteins as intruders, leading to an immune attack, the researchers from the University of Louisville’s School of Dentistry in Kentucky said.

In arthritis patients, the subsequent result is chronic inflammation responsible for bone and cartilage destruction within the joints.

Previous studies have indicated that gum disease is at least two times  more prevalent in rheumatoid arthritis patients.

The bacterium, Porphyromonas gingivalis, produces a unique enzyme, peptidylarginine deiminanse (PAD).

 

They discovered that PAD changes residues of certain proteins into citrulline, and the body recognises these proteins as intruders, leading to an immune attack. 

In rheumatoid arthritis patients, the subsequent result is chronic inflammation responsible for bone and cartilage destruction within the joints.

Researcher Dr Jan Potempa from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry Oral Health and Systemic Diseases said: 'Taken together, our results suggest that bacterial PAD may constitute the mechanistic link between P. gingivalis periodontal infection and rheumatoid arthritis, but this ground-breaking conclusion will need to be verified with further research.'

Dr Potempa and his team studied another oral bacterium, Prevotella intermedia for the same affect, but learned it did not produce PAD or the subsequent effects.

Writing in the study, published in PLOS Pathogens, Dr Potempa said he is hopeful these findings will shed new light on the treatment and prevention of rheumatoid arthritis.

Studies indicate that compared to the general population, people with periodontal disease have an increased prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis and periodontal disease is at least two times more prevalent in rheumatoid arthritis patients. 

Other research has shown that a P. gingivalis infection in the mouth will precede rheumatoid arthritis and the bacterium is the likely culprit for onset and continuation of the autoimmune inflammatory responses that occur in the disease.
