How does hypertension affect oral health?

Oral Medicine

The World Health Organization attributes hypertension, or high blood pressure, as the leading cause of cardiovascular mortality. An elevated arterial pressure is probably the most important public health problem in developed countries.

It is common, asymptomatic readily detectable and easily treatable, and if untreated, often leads to complications. Although our understanding of the pathophysiology of elevated arterial pressure has increased, in 90 to 95% of cases the etiology is still largely unknown.

Enlaces Patrocinados

As a consequence, in most cases hypertension is treated non-specifically, resulting in the large number of minor side effects and relatively high non-compliance rate. The ratio of hypertension frequency in women versus men increases from 0.6 to 0.7 at age 30 to 1.1 to 1.2 at age 65.

Dentists have a rare opportunity to detect cases of hypertension. It is a professional responsibility of a dental clinician to inform the patient of their hypertensive state and to offer medical advice, including epropriate referrals.

Oral health problems in children with down syndrome

Oral Health

Oral health in people with Down syndrome (SD) has some peculiar aspects that must be considered in the follow-up of these patients. Patients with down syndrome have particular physical, facial, and oral characteristics (teeth, gums, kengua, palate, and occlusion).

The incidence of caries and periodontal disease in patients with down syndrome is quite high, and preventive measures must be taken to avoid them.


It is important to go to a specialist to evaluate the child with down syndrome and give guidelines for correct hygiene according to their oral characteristics. Remember that prevention is the best weapon against cavities.

Why take care of baby teeth if they are going to fall out?

Pediatric Dentistry

The primary teeth appear at approximately 8 months, and finish erupting at 30 months. It is important that during this period a custom of hygiene is created in the child.

Keeping the primary teeth healthy ensures good chewing and occlusion, helps with good pronunciation, and makes it easier to learn new words.


For all this, it is important to keep primary teeth healthy, through good oral hygiene, a correct diet low in sugar and carbohydrates, and controlling night breast milk.

I wear braces and my gums are swollen, why?

Orthodontic

The use of braces generates a series of unpleasant situations, one of them is inflammation and spontaneous bleeding of the gums. The most frequent cause of this inflammation is the lack of oral hygiene.


The brackets accumulate a greater amount of food remains, so patients should keep in mind that they are obliged to maintain adequate and constant oral hygiene, and with all the hygiene items recommended by their doctor.
