Are Edentulousness, Oral Health Problems and Poor Health-Related Quality of Life Associated with Malnutrition in Community-Dwelling Elderly (Aged 75 Years and Over)? A Cross-Sectional Study.

Nutrients 2018 Dec 12;10(12). Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, 9700 RB Groningen, The Netherlands.

As the population ages, the risk of becoming malnourished increases. Research has shown that poor oral health can be a risk factor for malnutrition in institutionalized elderly. However, it remains unclear whether oral health problems, edentulousness and health-related quality of life also pose a risk for malnutrition in community-dwelling older adults. Read More

Zhonghua Kou Qiang Yi Xue Za Zhi 2018 Dec;53(12):800-804

Department of Dental Implantology, West China Hospital of Stomatology, Sichuan University & State Key Laboratory of Oral Diseases & National Clinical Research Center for Oral Diseases, Chengdu 610041, China.

Peri-implantitis, restoration loosening and fracture, implant structural damage are common post-restorative complications in implant rehabilitation. With an increasing incidence, they may occur in implant-supported single or splinted crowns, bridges, overdenture or fixed denture. Possible causes involve not only the design of implant components structure and characteristics of restorative materials, but also the design of restoration and the occlusal function and structure of patients.

Quality of life and mastication in denture wearers and cleft lip and palate adults.

Braz Oral Res 2018 Nov 29;32:e113. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul - PUC-RS, Dental School, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.

The impact of oral rehabilitation on masticatory function and oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) may vary with the experience of the individual with tissue loss. Our hypothesis is that patient-centered outcomes vary among adults who have experienced large defects in the maxilla due to congenital or acquired conditions even after oral rehabilitation to restore aesthetics and function. This study compared OHRQoL, perceived masticatory ability, maximum bite force (MBF), and symptoms of pain and depression among subjects with acquired (edentulous maxilla) and congenital (cleft lip and palate) loss of oral tissues in the maxilla after dental treatment.

Practical Guidelines for Physicians in Promoting Oral Health in Frail Older Adults.

J Am Med Dir Assoc 2018 Dec;19(12):1039-1046

European College of Gerodontology; Institute of Dentistry, Faculty of Medicine, Jagiellonian University Medical College, Kraków, Poland.

Good oral health in old age is particularly important for maintaining adequate oral function, preventing pain and discomfort, controlling localized or systemic inflammation, sustaining social interaction, and preserving quality of life. Given that oral health is an integral part of general health and well-being, and that major chronic systemic and oral diseases share common risk factors, oral health prevention and promotion should be embedded within routine medical assessment and care provision. The role of medical physicians, particularly primary care physicians, geriatricians, and elderly care physicians, in community and long-term care facilities in assessing and promoting oral health in frail older adults is critical and has been emphasized in recent European recommendations.
