AAO Breaks New Ground to Attract Adults

Posted on May 3, 2016

St. Louis – May 3, 2016— A great smile never goes out of style. That’s why the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) is heading to New York’s Fashion Week this September to throw its first-ever pop-up fashion event, “Your Smile is Your Best Fashion Accessory.”

 “We’ve seen a stunning increase over the past decade in the number of adults who are seeking orthodontic treatment,” says DeWayne B. McCamish, DDS, MS, president of the AAO.  “We created this concept to connect with potential patients in an entirely new way. This one-of-a-kind, interactive event will encourage attendees and the online fashion community to discover the life-changing power of a healthy, beautiful smile, and that it can be achieved, regardless of age, by working with an orthodontist.  We’ve designed this event to reach a national audience from a top-tier venue in the heart of Manhattan. Our guests’ exploration of the latest fashion, beauty tips and health information during the event will be shared by top fashion bloggers nationally in real-time.”

“Your Smile is Your Best Fashion Accessory” will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 7, 2016, at the Shops at Columbus Circle at Time Warner Center in New York. The event, which falls on the eve of New York’s Fashion Week, is free and open to the public and pre-registration is recommended. Light refreshments will be served.

Presenting sponsor Align Technology, Inc., manufacturers of Invisalign? clear aligners, will offer free computer imaging sessions to give participants a glimpse of their post-treatment smile. “We are very excited to be working with the AAO to bring greater awareness of orthodontic treatment and its benefits to prospective patients,” said Raphael Pascaud, Align’s Chief Marketing Officer.  “Invisalign patients and their doctors tell us all the time that having a healthy, beautiful smile is a confidence booster and a great investment in themselves that lasts a lifetime. We believe these messages will resonate with the fashion-forward consumers who attend NYFW and who follow Fashion Week activities online, all around the world.”

To broaden the event’s reach and amplify messaging, the AAO is partnering with InStyle magazine, one of the most popular fashion magazines in the world. In addition to a robust digital, print and social media campaign, the AAO is engaging InStyle’s celebrity style trend expert, Tai Beauchamp, to give style tips and ‘do’s and don’ts’ throughout the evening. Conversely, key fashion influencers will be in attendance interacting with their social media followers.

Retailers from the Center will also participate, showcasing the latest trends in fashion and accessories.

“We can all agree that a healthy, beautiful smile is timeless fashion accessory,” says Dr. McCamish. “We want to help our guests visualize how achieving a healthy, beautiful smile can be life changing. We hope this event inspires our guests to discover how orthodontists can help achieve the confidence and poise that comes with a gorgeous smile.”

Oral Health America Releases State-By-State Analysis of Older Americans’ Oral Health

Posted on May 3, 2016

CHICAGO, May 3 – Oral Health is an important part of overall health and well-being, but there are huge gaps in oral health particularly for older Americans. Because by the year 2030, it is expected that more than 19% of the U.S. population–almost one out of every five Americans–is expected to be 65 years or older, we can make a real difference by opening up a much broader conversation about the complex issues surrounding the oral health of older Americans as well as the goals and responsibilities of communities in providing support and access. 

Oral Health America (OHA) has published a new report examining factors impacting the oral health of older Americans. A State of Decay, Vol. III is a state-by-state report of the oral health of its 65+ population and the success or failure of states to address those needs. It reveals that continued attention is needed to ensure that America’s increasing population of seniors age healthily and independently.

“Access to oral healthcare for older Americans is a matter of social justice, with those living in poverty suffering the most from the lack of publicly funded benefits needed to improve their oral and overall health,” said Dr. Caswell Evans, Associate Dean of Prevention and Public Health Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Dentistry and member of Oral Health America's Board of Directors.  

The report serves as a resource for states to address shortfalls in oral health status, dental benefits for low income adults and population-based prevention, all of which impact the oral health of older adults. It proposes concrete steps that can be taken to promote healthy aging and independence for this rapidly growing cohort of America’s population.

•   Because early detection is key to early intervention, we need to support the Older Americans Act Reauthorization of 2016 which covers oral health screenings using health promotion funds

•   Passing the RAISE Family Caregivers Act in the House of Representatives would improve education and training of caregivers on proper oral health maintenance 

•   One of the most critical challenges for seniors is paying for care, thus we need to advocate for financially viable publicly funded dental benefits through Medicaid and Medicare

•   Community Water Fluoridation has been shown to positively impact oral health at a population level, thus we need to sustain implementation efforts

•   To ensure that oral disease is prioritized along with other chronic diseases, we must include specific language to ensure inclusion of provisions for older adults in every state’s Oral Health Plan 

•   Finally, because information can drive policy and funding supports, we need to establish continuous surveillance of older adults’ oral health by requiring states to administer the Basic Screening Survey  

A State of Decay, Vol. III gives a rating of “Poor,” “Fair,” “Good,” or “Excellent” based on state level data analyzing five variables impacting older adult oral health: Edentulism (loss of all teeth), Adult Medicaid Dental Benefits, Community Water Fluoridation, Basic Screening Surveys and State Oral Health Plans.

Two states, Minnesota and North Dakota emerged as models and are profiled for best practices in the report. Both earned a Composite Score of “Excellent” with a 100% and 96% rating respectively.

OHA ranked each of the 50 states based on the overall health status among the older adult population as measured by an overall state score referred to as a Composite Score. In order, the 10 states with the highest Composite Scores are Minnesota, North Dakota, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Rhode Island, Indiana, Florida, Virginia, Colorado and Michigan. The states with the lowest Composite Scores are Utah, Oklahoma, Texas, New Jersey, Montana, Mississippi, Wyoming, Hawaii, and Tennessee with Alabama’s score being the least favorable. The final evaluations for all 50 states revealed that 76% of states earned a Composite Score of 50% or less out of 100 with 22% earning a Composite Score of “Fair” and 54% earning a Composite Score of “Poor.” Ten states received a Composite Score of “Good.”

 

The top findings of this report that elicit further scrutiny and action are: 

•   Tooth loss remains a signal of suboptimal oral health. Eight states had strikingly high rates of edentulism, with West Virginia notably having an older adult population that is 33.6% edentate

•   Fluoridated water presents an important opportunity for prevention. Five states (10%) still have 60% or more residents living in communities unprotected by fluoridated water. Hawaii (89.2%) and New Jersey (85.4%) have the highest rates of residents living without fluoridated water

•   Improving oral health coverage would improve outcomes Sixteen percent of states (8 states) provide either no dental benefit or emergency coverage only through adult Medicaid dental benefits. Four states (8%) cover the maximum possible dental services in Medicaid

•   We need strategic planning to address the oral health needs of older adults. Eighty-four percent (42 states) lack a State Oral Health Plan that mentions older adults, with 14 states lacking any type of State Oral Health Plan

•   We need more data about the oral health condition of older adults. Forty-six percent (23 states) have never completed a Basic Screening Survey, a surveillance of the oral health conditions of seniors in community and long-term-care settings of older adults and have no plan to do so 

“While many Americans face obstacles when it comes to oral health, older adults are at an increased risk due to challenges with accessing care,” said Dr. Dushanka Kleinman, a dentist and associate dean for research and academic affairs at the University of Maryland, School of Public Health. “We have to develop solutions at the practice and policy level to address the barriers older Americans experience.”

High Percentage of Patients Prescribed Opioids Following Tooth Extraction

Posted on May 2, 2016

In a study published online by Journal of the American Medical Association, Brian T. Bateman, M.D., M.Sc., of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, and colleagues examined nationwide patterns of opioid prescribing following surgical tooth extraction.

Opioid abuse has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, and often begins with a prescription for a pain medication. Dentists are among the leading prescribers of opioid analgesics, and surgical tooth extraction is one of the most frequently performed dental procedures. Surveys suggest that dental practitioners commonly prescribe opioids following this procedure, despite evidence that a combination of nonsteroidal medications and acetaminophen may provide more effective treatment for postextraction pain.

The researchers collected data from a national database of health claims drawn from Medicaid transactions for the years 2000-2010. All patients who underwent surgical dental extraction were included. The frequency of opioid prescriptions filled within 7 days of extraction was determined, as was the nature and amount of opioids dispensed.

The analysis included 2,757,273 patients. Within 7 days of extraction, 42% of patients filled a prescription for an opioid medication. The most commonly dispensed opioid was hydrocodone (78% of all prescriptions), followed by oxycodone (15%), propoxyphene (3.5%), and codeine (1.6%). Patients age 14 to 17 years had the highest proportion who filled opioid prescriptions (61%), followed by patients age 18 to 24 years.

There was great variability in the amount of opioids dispensed for a given procedure, with an approximately 3-fold difference between the 10th and 90th percentile in the oral morphine equivalents prescribed. “Although a limited supply of opioids may be required for some patients following tooth extraction, these data suggest that disproportionally large amounts of opioids are frequently prescribed given the expected intensity and duration of postextraction pain, particularly as nonopioid analgesics may be more effective in this setting,” the authors write.

“This common dental procedure may represent an important area of excessive opioid prescribing in the United States. As the nation implements programs to reduce excessive prescribing of opioid medications, it will be important to include dental care in these approaches.”

Dental Leaders Advocate for Top Oral Health Executive

Posted on May 2, 2016

CHICAGO, April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), the American Association for Dental Research (AADR), the American Association of Public Health Dentistry (AAPHD), and the Special Care Dentistry Association (SCDA) this week urged our nation's legislators to restore the position of chief dental officer with executive-level authority and resources to oversee the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) dental programs and oral health initiatives. Leaders from these four organizations convened on Capitol Hill to advocate that good oral health is an essential public health need, and the agency's current staffing structure fails to adequately support individuals across the country.

"HRSA needs the strong voice of a dentist to inform and lead our country's oral health agenda," said AGD President W. Mark Donald, DDS, MAGD. "Without this leader, the health of more than 3 million people served through HRSA programs, including many of the most vulnerable and underserved, is being left at risk, managed by administrators without formal training in oral health and dentistry. A dentist in the chief dental officer role would be able to draw from his or her practice expertise and clinical knowledge to best identify our country's oral health challenges, develop solutions in response, and ensure that each dollar spent is done so in a way that will result in better oral health outcomes."

The chief dental officer position was established in 2008; however, the role has never been granted a separate budget or line-item authority like similar appointments in agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Indian Health Services, or National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.

Donald was joined by SCDA Vice President Jeffrey Hicks, DDS; AAPHD Executive Director Julie Frantsve-Hawley, RDH, Ph.D.; and AADR Director of Governmental Affairs Carolyn Mullen.

CAP: May Is Zirconia Awareness Month

Posted on May 2, 2016

BOSTON, MA - CAP, provider of end-to-end solutions for dental laboratories, declared May 2016 as the inaugural Zirconia Awareness Month to fight the scourge of misinformation about zirconia in the market.

"The types of zirconia that are on the market are constantly proliferating and changing," says Bob Cohen, President of CAP. "Many of our partner labs contact us to make sense of these new and different products, so we're responding with a host of educational initiatives that we've set up for this month."

While education has always been core to the CAP mission to help laboratories thrive, this special focus on zirconia consists of a variety of tools, such as videos, blogs, webinars, and eBooks.

"Our educational focus this month will be on selecting the right zirconia, mill, sintering furnace, tools, and how to achieve best-in-class post-processing - the entire end-to-end process to produce a superior result that doctors and patients alike will love," Cohen says.

To take advantage of this complimentary education, laboratories can join CAP's contact list at http://cap-us.com/sign-up/.

Are Physicians Prescribing Unnecessary Antibiotics for Toothache?

Posted on April 29, 2016

Over half of all patients who visited their general physician (GP) with a dental problem in the last 10 years were not offered a long-term treatment for their pain and were instead prescribed antibiotics, often unnecessarily, new research has found.

In a 10-year retrospective study published in the British Journal of General Practice, a team of experts from Cardiff University and Cardiff and Vale University Health Board examined dental consultations in UK general practice and the resultant number of antibiotics prescriptions.

The study found many patients are visiting their GPs rather than their dentists, and that over half of these consultations resulted in antibiotic prescribing, which is likely to be unhelpful, and potentially harmful.

"Most dental problems cannot be comprehensively managed by a GP. This places an additional burden on already busy GPs when patients should be visiting a dentist," said Dr Anwen Cope, a qualified dentist and speciality trainee in Dental Public Health at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, who completed the research alongside colleagues from the Schools of Dentistry and Medicine at Cardiff University.

"The best treatment for severe toothache remains an operative intervention like an extraction or root canal treatment. These treatments can only be undertaken by a dentist. Therefore, we would always encourage patients to see a dentist, rather than a GP, when experiencing dental problems."

The most alarming finding was the number of unnecessary prescriptions of antibiotics over the last 10 years.

The study found over half of patients in the study who consulted their GP with a dental problem were prescribed an antibiotic. This raises serious concerns about the UK's long-term dental health and the potential contribution to antibiotic resistance.

Antibiotic drug resistance, which occurs when bacterial infections no longer respond to antibiotics, is a serious problem, and the use of antibiotics is the single most important factor leading to resistance.

Dr Cope added, "The widespread use of antibiotics in the management of tooth-related complaints in general practice is concerning. Despite antibiotics not providing a definitive treatment for dental problems we found over half of consultations for dental problems resulted in prescription of an antibiotic. This presents a number of problems. It means patients are not getting a long-term resolution for their dental problem, and they may even remain in pain for longer. Prescribing antibiotics also carries a risk of adverse reaction and is likely to increase the number of medical consultations for dental conditions further down the line. More worryingly is the potential impact on the rates of antibacterial resistance. Antibiotics save lives, and therefore it's important we use them carefully and only when they are really required. Improving antibiotic prescribing for dental problems is an important step in ensuring antibiotics will still be available in the years to come."

This research did not identify the reasons why patients were consulting with a GP rather than a dentist, and it may be that GPs are sometimes treating patients who report being unable to get a timely appointment with a dentist.

Nevertheless, the team hope the study will promote more appropriate consulting for dental problems, and a reduction in antibiotic prescribing by GPs for patients with dental problems.

Dr Cope added, "The messages from our study are simple: GPs should avoid routinely prescribing antibiotics when patients present with dental problems, and more work is needed to identify how patients experiencing dental problems can be best directed to emergency dental services. Understanding the drivers of antibiotic prescribing for oral health problems will help inform educational interventions for GPs to ensure that patients receive the most appropriate care for their dental conditions."
