21 Dental Public Health Web Resource Area DDS Research The DDS carries out research in a number of areas, adding to the oral health evidence base and supporting patient care. Two recent papers of note are listed below. Copies can be accessed from the Dii based web portal version of this site: Main Menu Third Molar related morbidity in deployed Service personnel - J Combes, E McColl, B Cross & R J McCormick Is there a differential in the Dental Health of new recruits to the British Armed Forces.

22 Dental Public Health Web Resource Area Common Dental Problems Main Menu Click an image to see more

23 Common Dental Problems Main Menu Eating sugar- containing foods more than 3-4 times per day WILL cause tooth decay Fillings fill a hole, they do NOT prevent further decay Keeping sugary foods to mealtimes (Less than 4 times per day) Is the ONLY way to prevent decay Early decay forms UNDER the surface and may not be obvious until a cavity forms late on Dental Decay Watch out for hidden sugars in baked beans, ketchup, coffee whiteners etc.

24 Oral Cancer can occur ANYWHERE in the mouth. Over 6,000 cases are diagnosed in the UK each year The further back in the mouth it occurs, the HARDER it may be to detect, the LATER it may be diagnosed SMOKING is a MAJOR risk factor for oral cancer ALCOHOL can increase the risk when combined with smoking White or red patches, lumps and ulcers can all occur commonly in the mouth BUT if in doubt GET IT CHECKED by a dentist Unexplained symptoms present for over 3 weeks SHOULD be checked by a dentist For more information visit: http://www.mouthcancer.org/page/about-mouth-cancer Oral cancer sufferers are more likely to die than those with cervical cancer or melanoma Oral Cancer Common Dental Problems Main Menu

25 Dental Trauma Falls, sports injuries, fighting and accidents can all result in damage to the teeth Injuries can involve the lips and other soft tissues and/or the teeth Baby teeth should NEVER be re-inserted into the childs mouth as this can damage the unerupted permanent tooth Any injury involving suspected loss of consciousness should be seen by a medical professional Teeth that are displaced (moved) will require further investigation by a dentist Adult teeth that are knocked out can sometimes be successfully re-inserted: Time is important, further treatment will be required: - Gently reinsert tooth into socket if practical - If dirty, gently rinse tooth with clean water, dont touch the root - Alternatively transport tooth to dentist in milk, saline, saliva, or, as last resort, water Wearing a custom fitted MOUTHGUARD for all contact sports can significantly reduce the risk of dental injuries. Contact your dental centre to make an appointment if required Common Dental Problems Main Menu

26 Acid Tooth Erosion Juices and sports drinks, even sugar-free ones, contain acids The longer the acids are in contact with the teeth, the greater the rate of erosion Acid dissolves the tooth enamel, making it thinner and more prone to fracture over time Top Tips: Avoid frequent / prolonged sipping of fruit juices, fizzy drinks and sports drinks Use a straw to minimise drink contact with the teeth Avoid swilling the drink around the mouth and against the teeth Dont brush teeth straight after the drink – this brushes away the softened enamel Instead use a fluoride rinse to strengthen enamel WATER provides adequate hydration during sports and does not damage the teeth! Saliva and fluoride provide some limited repair to early / infrequent damage Common Dental Problems Main Menu

27 Smoking and dental health Thinking about Quitting? - Book a smoking cessation appt at Med Centre - Make a plan - Tell others you are quitting - Find out about Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) or other drugs -Avoid areas where you may be tempted to light up e.g. smokers shelters - NHS Smoking Helpline 0800 169 0169 (Provide some free material Smoking causes: - Increased mouth cancer risk - Increased gum disease and future tooth loss risk - Greater risk of and slower healing mouth infections - Faster loss of muscle tone around the mouth and premature ageing - Stained teeth and tongue - Bad breath - On top of ALL the general health risks (cancers, lung & heart disease…) Visit: http://www.nosmokingday.org.uk/ For further information Common Dental Problems Main Menu

28 Oral Hygiene and gum disease The gums around the teeth are vulnerable to disease If your gums bleed after you brush then you are likely to be at risk – they need more attention from the brush not less! Gum disease over years can lead to permanently receding gums, ugly gaps, loose teeth and is the biggest cause of losing teeth Poor cleanliness and untreated gum disease can leave teeth prone to infections and abscesses 1.Brush twice daily for 2 mins – brushing all areas carefully 2.Spit but dont rinse out the toothpaste 3.Use an interdental aid – floss / flossettes / tepes each day Common Dental Problems Main Menu

29 Dental Public Health Web Resource Area Top Tips for Deployment Main Menu 1 Arrange a pre-deployment dental inspection well in advance of your deployment date. 2 Limit the frequency of sugar-containing foods to 3-4 times per day MAX. 3 Avoid frequent intake of sports drinks & squash which cause both tooth decay and acid erosion. - Drink water: it rehydrates, is healthy, safe for teeth and best of all its free! 4 If you are told you are at risk for dental decay; -Discuss your diet with the dental officer – try to keep sugars solely to main meals -Request protective fluoride varnish from the dental officer (applied 6 monthly). -Take a high strength fluoride toothpaste on deployment -Consider using an alcohol-free fluoride mouth rinse between brushings -Spit out, but dont rinse away toothpaste after brushing, to increase the dose 5 Read the short booklet: The Service Guide to Oral Health:

Once formally approved, it is hoped that selection for future courses can be offered at the Training Establishment. Any DN who have undergone the training, either through the DDS or externally, must ensure that copies of their certificates are forwarded to RHQ in order for a record to be maintained at DDS HQ. Only formally trained DN are authorised to apply fluoride varnish and give associated preventive advice, which must then be recorded on DMICP.

49 Dental Public Health Web Resource Area Fluoride Varnish - Patient Information Main Menu What is it? A concentrated fluoride gel applied to teeth by the dental team at your appointment – painless and completed in minutes. Why? Studies show that when applied twice-yearly it can reduce dental decay by up to 50% (Effectiveness is increased with dietary changes). How? Fluoride absorbed by tooth enamel increases resistance against tooth decay. It helps protect against bacterial acids released after sugar is eaten. Is that it? No…dont forget, the best way to prevent decay is to cut down how many times a day you eat sugar-containing foods

50 Dental Public Health Web Resource Area How to Order OHP Products Main Menu Background. 1.There are three major Oral Health Promotion (OHP) campaigns supported by the DDS - No Smoking Day, National Smile Month and Mouth Cancer Action Month. 2. In addition, the DDS has a budget that can be used by dental centres to purchase products to supplement these packs or at any other point throughout the year to promote oral health. 3. There is a collection of pooled electronic resources that can be accessed on this website (Dii version only) Criteria for funding. 4. As the budget is limited, it is important to concentrate these limited resources on our patients so there are certain criteria for approval of funding: a. Dental Centres that do not treat children are not entitled to funding for child OHP products. However, there are child OHP products held centrally at HQ DDS that are available for loan. b. Everything needs to have an OHP message. A picture of a tooth and no message is not considered to be value for money. c. The maximum levels of funding for a single OHI orders is £200 and giveaways are limited to £30. OHP suppliers. 5. There are 2 companies that can be used: British Dental Health Foundation. Their website is www.dentalhealth.org and all dental centres are eligible for the members prices.www.dentalhealth.org GASP. Their website is www.gasp.org.uk and as their name suggest this company concentrates on stop smoking merchandise.www.gasp.org.uk Procedure for application of funding. 6. Send an email to Polly Harrison SG-JMC-DDS-PS@mod.uk by using the template below. Please copy your Regional Oral HealthSG-JMC-DDS-PS@mod.uk Coordinator into the email ROHCROHC 7. An email from Polly Harrison approving the order will be sent to you and copied directly to the OHP company. This email constitutes the order and therefore there is nothing that you will need to do until you have received your items. 8. The invoice will be sent directly to Polly. Therefore, it is imperative that on receiving your items you email Polly to confirm that you have received the order. HQ can then settle the bill. Click Here for template

53 Dental Public Health Web Resource Area Achievements & Initiatives Main Menu Health Promotion campaigns Spit Dont Rinse Regional Oral Health coordinators Oral Health Conference Research Ongoing Initiatives Health Promotion Campaigns Through DPH, the DDS participates in 3 funded major oral health campaigns: - Mouth Cancer Action Month - Smile Month - No Smoking Day These campaigns reach thousands of military patients and their families, delivering key oral health messages through a variety of settings and media including: - Attendance at Health Fairs & Unit events - Displays in dental centres - BFBS TV and Radio spots - Local and National Publications Select a topic to view more Click again to close tab. Ongoing Initiatives DDS DPH are actively engaging with the chain of command to investigate modifications to operational ration packs in order to reduce cariogenic components, ensuring they are optimised to prevent dental diseases in those on operations or training exercises Targeted OHP: DPH are producing a number of targeted oral health promotion resources aimed at recruits, those on operations and those attending health fairs. Resources will include branded products such as toothbrushes with clear oral health messages, posters and information leaflets. Research DPH continue to support a number of individuals conducting research for publication. Recent examples included research on the health differentials of Armed Forces recruits, the effects of peripatetic clinics in reducing dental morbidity on operations and the effects of third molar management on dental morbidity. Additionally, the DPH team support dental officers in the undertaking of routine clinical audit as part of CPD and quality assurance. Spit Dont Rinse Started in 2012, Spit Dont Rinse was conceived to provide simple, memorable oral health advice that could be easily adopted by patients to make a difference. The concept is simple; after brushing with fluoride toothpaste, spit but do not rinse out the mouth. This allows a greater concentration of fluoride to remain on the teeth for longer and, particularly at night time, can be an effective adjunct in the fight against tooth decay. Posters, branded toothpastes and wide use of media ensured maximum visibility whilst incorporation of the health message into Phase I recruit training as part of a DPH Consultant-led research project has helped to demonstrate that lasting behavioural change is possible. Oral Health Conference With over 200 attendees and a variety of esteemed speakers, the 2012 Oral Health Conference held at Keogh Barracks, showcased the best of preventive practice in the DDS. Open to all, particularly DCPs, it provided an opportunity for dental health promoters to share knowledge. Highlights included prizes for outstanding efforts in oral health promotion which were presented by Nigel Carter Chief Exec of the BDHF. The 2013 event on 4 July will build on this success. The theme is Oral Health Promotion for the Dental Team. Regional Oral Health Coordinators The implementation of a regional and international network of Oral Health Coordinators (ROHC) provides a unique opportunity to channel oral health promotion activities through a subject matter expert. Highly motivated and proactive, 11 selected ROHCs help ensure preventive best practice is standard business and that dental teams are resourced to improve the health of their populations. ROHC hold a selection of regional resources that can be loaned out to dental centres.
