Image
Periodontal disease
Periodontal disease is a common chronic inflammatory disease characterized by destruction of the supporting structures of the teeth and includes gingivitis and periodontitis.On the other hand, diabetes is a metabolic syndrome whose commonness is growing rapidly. It is known to be accompanied by serious complications such as blindness, gangrene, nephropathy, healing disorders, cardiovascular disease, and even death. Periodontal disease is the sixth most prevalent complication of diabetes, as the risk of periodontitis increases about three times in diabetic patients compared to non-diabetics.
Psychosomatic stress:
There are two concepts/hypothesis to explain the relationship between “Psyche” and “Soma” Chronic diseases are the feedback of long-term interactions between a host and its environment and are multifactorial in nature. A number of mechanisms have been suggested, which could mediate the putative relationship between psychosocial conditions and inflammatory peri…

Dental Problems and Diabetic Patients

Dental diseases are the most common chronic diseases worldwide, and a costly burden to health care services. An estimated billion peoples worldwide suffer from dental caries (tooth decay). Dental diseases include dental caries, exploratory defects of enamel, dental erosion and periodontal disease.
One of the current leading Dental Problem is Gum disease. ‘’Gum disease” is an infectious disease by germs present in the gums and mouth. It is one of the most usual infections in people around the world. In its more severe form known as “periodontitis” the infection is long lasting. The soft gums and bone around the teeth disband over time. This can lead to loss of teeth.
PERIODONTITIS may lead to RAISES blood sugar and causes type 2 diabetes.
People with Diabetes, especially unrestrained diabetes, have more gum disease than those without diabetes. We have known that for a long time. Now, scientists are finding that gum disease may raise blood sugar levels in people with and without diabetes.

What is Oral cancer?
The word oral cancer includes cancers of the mouth and the pharynx (the back of the throat).Cancer is a disease where cells in the body grow abnormally. Oral cancer is a chronic disease where cancer cells form in the mouth, lips, cheeks, gums, tongue, hard palate, tonsils and the throat.
Every day in each hour a person dies due to oral cancer. Oral cancer has been associated with the chronic and uncontrolled use of tobacco and alcohol. More recently it has been shown that Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection is also associated with oral cancer.
What is the risk factor for developing oral cancer? 1     Tobacco and alcohol use: Most cases of oral cancer are linked to cigarette smoking, heavy alcohol use, or the use of both tobacco and alcohol together. Using tobacco plus alcohol lead to a much greater risk than using either substance alone.     HPV: Infection with the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (specifically the HPV 16 type) has been linked to a subset o…

Current Problem for Tooth | Root Canal Treatment or Endodontic Treatment

Image
A root canal treatment involves the removal and replacement of a tooth’s pulp. The pulp is pulpy tissue containing blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. The pulp is found in a canal that runs through the centre of the hard tissue on the interior part of the tooth. The pulp expands from the pulp chamber in the crown down through the root canal to the tip of the root in the jawbone. A tooth has only one pulp room but may have more than one root and several root canals.
If pulp became damaged through wound or disease and cannot repair itself, bacteria and their products can leak into the pulp and cause the pulp to die. If a root canal procedure is not performed, an abscess can form at the tip of the root and cause severe pain. Even if there have no pain, the bone anchoring the tooth in the jaw can be damaged. If the treatment not performed, the tooth may have to be extracted. It is well-recognized and universally accepted that a successful outcome in endodontic treatment essentiall…
