Presentation Abstract: “Health and Oral Health Promotion Through the Prevention of Periodontitis”
Oral diseases such as dental caries, periodontitis, oral cancer and systemic chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment such as dementia and metabolic syndrome, which are prevalent, have common risk factors. Reports supported that periodontitis was associated with systemic chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment such as dementia and metabolic syndrome. The symptom related diagnosis for oral and systemic chronic diseases has been a great burden in prognosis, economy and well-being. Thus, prevention of periodontitis will be beneficial to ameliorate systemic chronic diseases, which promote oral health and systemic health. Our long-term experience yielded the state-of- the art guidelines for the prevention of periodontitis: First, practice WFLE-TOW in our daily living; Second, salivary diagnostics in clinics and at home. Usually, oral and systemic chronic diseases were diagnosed through sign and symptom. When we can screen oral and systemic chronic diseases in advance of symptom, it will be helpful to human life. Salivary point-of-care test (POCT) will guide the best way for early diagnosis of the risk of ailments. Proteins in saliva, which is the end product of the interaction between inflammation and immune response, have been studied as markers for oral and systemic chronic diseases especially periodontitis, oral cancer, atherosclerosis and cognitive impairment. Salivary POCT using significant proteins will be the rapid-test–kit for screening periodontitis in advance of traditional symptom including alveolar bone loss and pain at home and in clinics, which improve human well-being. Achieve Health through Oral Health!
