In the present study, the investigators aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of community-based oral exercise with LHA intervention on the oral health-related quality of life, oral function and oral self-care behaviors. This randomized controlled trial included LHA group (EG) and leaflet group (CG), respectively. The EG received a four-week one-on-one session by an LHA. Baseline and follow-up data collection were used to collect the data in oral Self-care behaviors, oral hygiene, oral function and quality of life.
1. Compare the effects of gargling with green tea on the oral health of stroke patients? 2. Compare whether gargling with green tea can reduce halitosis in stroke patients? 3. Compare whether gargling with green tea can reduce plaque index in stroke patients?
The aim of this randomized controlled trial was to compare PROMs in patients receiving single tooth replacement in posterior sites by s-CAIS and CIS.
Oral health is the one of the commonest causes of health problems in the world, with almost all individuals suffering from reduced oral health at some stage over their life span. As such, oral health is a major public health issue and a major consumer of health spending. Poor oral health results in pain, infection, structural degradation, functional restrictions in chewing, swallowing and speech, change in facial appearance, social stigma, altered body image, and reduced capacity to participate in social events, amongst others. Global problems of human functioning, disability, health and environment in turn affect oral status in many complex ways (for example, ability to maintain oral hygiene, nutritional restrictions, neuromotor incapacity, dysphagia, ability to access and cooperate with treatment, etc). Disability arises from a social environment that fails to enable everyone to access it regardless of his or her impairment. Disabilities are thus socially created and not dependent on the individual's type or location of impairment. There is currently very limited qualitative research exploring perceptions of the mouth, or oral health within a social environment, from the perspective of disabled adults. No universal, holistic, comprehensive tool exists to describe oral health, the functional impact of oral health, and the environmental factors influencing oral health within the biopsychosocial model. It has been suggested that a framework for such an instrument may be supplied by the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF: World Health Organisation, 2001) This research seeks to address these gaps by describing perceptions of the mouth from the perspective of adults with disabilities and complex health conditions, and by linking this qualitative data to the ICF in order to assess the feasibility of using the ICF to conceptualise oral health. Adults with disabilities and complex health conditions were chosen for this ICF core set preliminary study as existing literature suggests that these respondents would accumulate not only a high level of oral health need but also experience high impact of functioning and environment on oral health.
The primary aim of this cross-sectional survey in Zurich is to assess the oral health status (OHS), Oral Health Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL), and the nutritional status (NS) of community-dwelling elders dependent for care. The secondary objective of this study evaluates whether the OHS, OHRQoL and NS are influenced by cognitive status, level of dependency, socio-economic status and level of education. The tertiary objective is to assess whether the quality of nutritional uptake (refrigerator content) by the community-dwelling elders dependent for care is influenced by OHS/function, level of dependency, cognitive impairment, socio-economic status or level of education and the proximity and/or access to food sources (supermarkets).
The aim of the study is to evaluate Oral Health related quality of life of children and adolescents with down syndrome and Parental Perception, knowledge and Attitude on oral health conditions of children and adolescents with down syndrome
In order to evaluate the effects of supplementary probiotics and their metabolites on oral environment and oral microbiota, Taiwan FDA No. 88037803 will be used to evaluate the effects of oral probiotic candidate strains from previous research results and develop oral probiotic products.
In 2019, it was reported that there were 27.9 million smart phone users and 93.7 million phone subscribers in Egypt. This means that mHealth (which is the use of mobile phones in delivering health-care and public health services) could be a major asset to delivering oral health education to the secluded rural areas or the more under privileged remote areas in the future. However, in order to employ mHealth effectively, it's essential to estimate the percentage of users who, not only have access to mobile technology, but are also willing to utilize mHealth interventions. It is also of great importance to understand the patients' preferences regarding its use. This is in order to tailor an intervention that satisfies their needs for oral health related services. Therefore the aim of this study is to determine the access of Egyptian women to mobile phones, as well as their willingness to utilize mHealth interventions for oral health promotion.
The objective of this interventional with mucosa et saliva samples, monocentric, transversal and pilot study is to extract vibrational, thermal and dielectric markers obtained by Differential Scanning Calorimetry, Thermo-Stimulated Currents and Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy on oral mucosa and saliva samples collected from 66 patients divided in two groups (20-40 and 70-90 years old).
Oral Health Literacy is an integral part that should be taken into measures when evaluating the oral health status of any population. It has been stated that adults with low oral health literacy are more prone to miss their dental appointments and that low levels of oral health literacy, and being anxious and fearful of the dentist is a common barrier to the utilization of dental services. Unfortunately no previous studies assessed the oral health literacy level, dental anxiety and utilization of dental services among the Egyptian population. So the aim of the current study is to detect the impact of oral health literacy on level of dental anxiety and utilization of dental services among Misr International University (MIU) dental patients.
