Oral Health Care in Systemic Diseases pp. 9-72 $100.00
Authors:  Sirikarn Sutthavong, Pornchai Jansisyanont and Atik Sangasapaviriya (Sirikarn Sutthavong, Atik Sangasapaviriya, Phramongkutklao Hospital, Thailand, Pornchai Jansisyanont, Faculty of Dentistry, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand)
Oral health is known to be associated with general health. Much oral significance is
closely related to systemic diseases. There are several categories of systemic patients for
whom specific needs of dental care and counseling are needed. In some instances, so as
to reach the optimal total health care, a combination of medical and dental care is
necessary. Furthermore, poor oral hygiene itself is a risk factor for systemic diseases
such as periodontal status which can increase the severity of heart disease and diabetes.
Oral hygiene assessments are important so as to eliminate predisposing factors for
oral complications such as nasopharynx cancer, immune-compromised disease, diabetes
and valvular heart diseases in patients. Since early assessment can reduce both the
incidence and severity of oral complications, some early appropriate interventions can be
engaged according to the individualís treatment needs. It is necessary to carry out
consistency in the treatment by including periodically follow up and appropriate
counseling to the patients, so they may be able to take care of themselves up to the
desired outcome. This review focuses on the oral health care for specific groups of the
systemic patients i.e. diabetes, head and neck cancers, cardiovascular disease, and AIDS.
