Improving oral hygiene for stroke patients

Introduction: Oral hygiene is an important aspect of nursing care amongst stroke patients. The benefits of effective oral hygiene include improving cleanliness, removing debris and plaque, preventing complications which would result in increased hospital length of stay (Özden et al, 2013). Patients are able to eat and chew comfortably ensuring adequate nutritional intake with adequate oral hygiene (Chan & Hui-Ling, 2012). However, oral health is poor in this setting due to reduced cognition

Oral Care for Neuroscience patients in New Zealand – A national survey

Introduction Oral care is a pertinent issue in neuroscience nursing as many patients are unable to maintain their oral hygiene due to reduced consciousness, cranial nerve palsies or limb weakness. Oral care practice is based on tradition or experience rather than evidence based (Cohn & Fulton, 2006; Coker et al., 2017). Thirteen studies on oral hygiene practice and experience in nursing were explored. Binkley et al (2004) developed a questionnaire tool which formed the basis of four surveys

Application of Metagenomic Analyses in Dentistry as a Novel Strategy Enabling Complex Insight into Microbial Diversity of the Oral Cavity

The composition of the oral microbiome in healthy individuals is complex and dynamic, and depends on many factors, such as anatomi­cal location in the oral cavity, diet, oral hygiene habits or host immune responses. It is estimated at present that worldwide about 2 billion people suffer from diseases of the oral cavity, mainly periodontal disease and dental caries. Importantly, the oral microflora involved in local infections may spread and cause systemic, even life-threatening infections

Periodontal Status and Subgingival Biofilms in Cystic Fibrosis Adults

individuals with poor oral hygiene or periodontal diseases, can also harbor various important pathogenic microorganisms, including respiratory pathogens (Wise and Williams 2013; Souto et al. 2014; Caldas et al. 2015; Vilela et al. 2015). Periodontitis is a chronic infection of tooth-supporting tissues. The pathogenesis involves a complex of an immuno-inflammatory reaction of the host to a microbial community in the dental plaque. The severity of the periodontal disease results from the interaction between
