         Opening Activity

 Define periodontal disease.
 List three symptoms.
 Will it affect the rest of the body?
 What happens if it is not corrected?
 Does it occur because of age?

       Periodontal Disease
 Is chronic bacterial infection
  affecting the gingiva and underlying
  bone.
 Begins as gingivitis when plaque is
  not adequately removed from the
  tooth surface.
 If untreated, can progress causing
  bone destruction and eventual tooth
  loss.
 Can be localized or generalized.

        Facts About Periodontal
        Disease in the Elderly1,2
 Itis associated with increasing age, but
  is not a direct consequence of aging.

 Researchhas shown a gradual
  breakdown of the periodontium with age.

 The  periodontal ligaments contain less
  fiber and cellular constituents reducing
  healing and regenerative capabilities.

           Medical University of South Carolina/SC-Geriatric Education Center
    Facts About Periodontal
     Disease in the Elderly
 Cellsin the aging periodontium
 demonstrate higher production of
 inflammatory mediators which may
 affect the severity of the disease.

 Changes   in connective tissue
 structure including epithelial thinning
 and a decrease in keratinized tissue
 may result in increased susceptibility
 to infection.
          Medical University of South Carolina/SC-Geriatric Education Center

       Osteoporosis

       Cardiovascular Disease




          Medical University of South Carolina/SC-Geriatric Education Center
        Systemic Diseases5
 Diabetes Mellitus (DM):
   Duration of diabetes and severity of
    periodontal disease are directly
    proportional.
   Uncontrolled/poorly controlled DM
    associated with increased susceptibility
    to oral infections.
   Related to PMN dysfunction.
   Elevated glucose concentration in
    gingival secretions may cause altered
    plaque bacteria.
         Medical University of South Carolina/SC-Geriatric Education Center
       Systemic Diseases5

 Diabetes    Mellitus (DM):
   Hyperglycemia adversely affects
    collagen synthesis and maturation.
   Diabetics have less favorable response
    to therapy than non-diabetics.




        Medical University of South Carolina/SC-Geriatric Education Center
       Systemic Diseases6,7,8

 Osteoporosis:
   Age-related changes in bone mass are
    greater in women than men.
   Patients greater than 50 years of age
    demonstrate increased porosity of
    mandibular bone and an overall decrease
    in bone mass.




         Medical University of South Carolina/SC-Geriatric Education Center
       Systemic Diseases8

 Osteoporosis:
   Post-menopausal women with
    osteoporosis appear to be at greater
    risk for developing periodontal disease.
   Estrogen supplementation in early post-
    menopausal women with evidence of
    osteoporosis has shown to reduce
    gingivitis and attachment loss.



        Medical University of South Carolina/SC-Geriatric Education Center
         Systemic Diseases

 Cardiovascular Disease:
   Associated with periodontal disease, but
    exact mechanism not established

   Theories Include:

      Bacteria from the oral cavity gain access to
       vasculature causing systemic inflammation.
      Bacteria in the circulation attach to plaques
       along vessel walls and release agents that
       affect clotting.


          Medical University of South Carolina/SC-Geriatric Education Center
       Systemic Diseases3
 Theories Include:

     Periodontal disease as a source of
      inflammatory mediators, reaching systemic
      levels.

 Risk of infective endocarditis as a result
 of oral plaque bacteria.

 Arthritis/Poor Dexterity:
   Increased plaque accumulation

    plaque levels between rheumatoid arthritis-
    periodontitis patients and healthy controls.

  Arthritis/Poor Dexterity:
    Research indicates patients with
     rheumatoid arthritis have increased
     levels of inflammatory products in
     association with periodontal bone loss.
    Periodontal disease and rheumatoid
     arthritis thought to have similar
     pathologies.
       Damage from immune system response

     Certain malignancies, such as acute and
      chronic leukemias, often present with oral
      manifestations.
     Radiation, chemotherapy and bone
      marrow transplants may have adverse
      effects on the oral cavity.

  Cancer    Patients:
      Cytotoxic effects of the various cancer
       treatments may result in increased
       susceptibility to infection from fungal,
       viral and bacterial organisms.
      Potential sources of oral infections
       should be eliminated prior to cancer
       therapy.
