Dryness of the Mouth

Dry mouth may be caused by a systemic disease or by medication. The development of dental caries and mucosal infections caused by reduced salivary flow rate is prevented by providing up-to-date treatment and information.

Prevention of Bacterial Endocarditis

Maintenance of good oral hygiene is much more important in preventing infective endocarditis of dental origin than giving antimicrobial prophylaxis.

Down's Syndrome

Health problems that are characteristic to Down syndrome (DS) should be identified early (particularly congenital heart anomalies, vision and hearing impairment, hypothyroidism and coeliac disease). The monitoring and treatment of DS is the responsibility of the primary health care. Support services for intellectual and developmental disabilities should only be involved when specialist expertise is needed, e.g. for rehabilitation purposes.

Blood Gas Analysis and Acid-base Balance

The blood specimen should be examined as soon as possible after sampling

Dental Caries and Other Diseases of the Hard Tissues of the Teeth and Dental Pulp

Caries is a disease of the hard dental tissues. It has a high prevalence; it concerns almost everyone in industrialized countries. In countries with systematically organized dental care of children and adolescents, the prevalence of caries in younger generations has significantly decreased whereas the prevalence in older population has increased. The first stage of carious attack is the formation of dental plaque on certain surfaces of the tooth. The micro-organisms of normal oral microbial flora accumulate on the pellicle (formed from saliva) on tooth surfaces, and the formation of dental plaque starts.

Clinical Neurophysiology in Diagnostics

Clinical neurophysiology is a branch of medicine concerned with the measurement of the electrical activity of the central nervous system, peripheral nerves and muscles. The measurements of electrical activity are usually sensitive but, as far as the aetiology of the lesion is concerned, non-specific. The investigations are labour-intensive, and they are consultations by nature. Some of the investigations are uncomfortable for the patient. Neurophysiological investigations are therefore not suitable for screening purposes.

Dental Traumas

An avulsed permanent tooth should be replanted if the tooth is intact and alveolar socket is uninjured. Even if replantation later fails, it improves the outcome of a later implantation and postpones the the need of prosthetic replacement of the tooth. An avulsed primary tooth should never be replanted so as not to damage the developing permanent tooth underneath.

Gilbert's Syndrome

This common disorder presenting as asymptomatic jaundice should be identified and unnecessary examinations and referrals avoided.

Swelling of the Salivary Glands

Antibiotic treatment is necessary if the swelling of the salivary gland is associated with purulent discharge at the orifice of the gland duct or there are other signs of bacterial infection. Unilateral swelling of the submandibular gland is usually due to sialolithiasis. Bilateral swelling with few symptoms may be caused by sialadenosis, which is associated with systemic illnesses, or by SjOgren's syndrome. If unilateral swelling develops gradually, the possibility of a tumour should be considered, particularly in patients over 50 years of age. Do not take a biopsy but refer the patient to a specialist.

Malocclusions of the Teeth

Malocclusions are in part hereditary but environmental factors, including factors related to breathing and facial trauma, may play a significant part in the development of the condition. Certain types of malocclusion may predispose the patient to jaw and facial pain.
