The “Research Update” section offers the keys to early detection of oral cancer. In 2015, 6,670 new cases of the disease were diagnosed in Spain. This article explains what the risk factors are and highlights the importance of prevention, as well as early diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
Before beginning therapy, patients should always be examined so as to rule out any oral pathology from which they may be suffering. In the “DENTAID Solutions” section we detail which steps must be taken to carry out proper oral care in patients undergoing radiation therapy or chemotherapy. Mechanical oral hygiene will be more difficult, so it will be necessary to use specific products such as those offered by the brands Perio·Aid® and dentaid® Xeros.
Training and research are paramount for DENTAID. The “Aula DENTAID” section discusses the courses on research and prevention in the field of dentistry and announces a new training session. Continuing with the subject of research, the “DENTAID Research Center” section presents the state-of-the-art equipment used in the Oral Microbiology Laboratory, where major oral infectious diseases are studied.
In this issue we include a series of articles covering the prevention of various oral disorders and diseases. Dental hypersensitivity is a painful disorder from which many people suffer, and which requires professional help to remedy. The “The Voice of the Hygienist” section uncovers the keys to preventing and treating this problem.
Peri-implantitis is an infectious disease that affects the soft and hard supporting tissues surrounding dental implants. The development of antibacterial strategies can be key to its prevention. The “Study” section focuses on antibacterial prevention in patients with titanium implants.
Smoking has a negative impact on oral health and is a high risk factor in the occurrence of oral cancer. “The voice of SEPA” includes the “Smoking cessation and oral health” report, prepared by the Working Group of the Spanish Society of Periodontology and Osseointegration (SEPA) and the National Committee for the Prevention of Smoking (CNPT), which highlights the importance of the role of oral health professionals in the prevention and cessation of smoking.
In the “Speaking with...” section, Raúl G. Caffesse, a doctor in Dentistry from the University of Buenos Aires and a world expert in the field of periodontology, offers an interesting interview in which he discusses, among other topics, his participation in a recent epidemiological study on peri-implant disease in Spain.
In a clinical case, “The voice of SECIB” explains the steps to be taken in the surgical treatment of oro-sinusal communications.
Each patient needs a customised oral health product. The “News” section describes the VITIS® oral health range with the appropriate products for each pathology. It also proposes a challenge: the “21-day Interprox® Challenge” programme, aimed at changing or acquiring new oral hygiene habits. We also inform about the all-new DENTAID hyaluronrepair® technology and the exclusive Perio·Aid® Bioadhesive Gel formulation, which provide multiple actions and are meant to be used in the dental clinic, as well as the Waterpik® water flosser, particularly indicated for patients with implants.
Finally, we explain what oral disorders and diseases may appear in diabetic patients with xerostomia, how to fight dental hypersensitivity and how to help patients with halitosis.
