Method of Study

A study was done in Korea with two COVID-19 Patients, from the day 1-9 in hospital several specimens were taken the nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal region using polyester flocked swabs, saliva and sputum samples also were collected and placed in separate tubes with virus transport medium.

On days 3 and 6, chlorhexidine gluconate solution mouthwash (0.12%, 15 mL) was done for 30 seconds after baseline specimen sampling on saliva and sputum samples. The same method of samples was collected to at 0 hours before mouthwash, 1 hour, 2nd hour, and 4th hour. 

SARS-CoV-2 rRT-PCR 

The presence of SARS-CoV-2 was confirmed by real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR). RNA was extracted from the clinical samples using NucliSENS easyMAG platform (bioMérieux, Marcy-l’Étoile, France). rRT-PCR was performed using CFX96 real-time PCR detection system (Bio-rad, Hercules, CA, USA) and PowerChek 2019- nCoV real-time PCR kit (Kogenebiotech, Seoul, Korea), which targeted the E and RdRP genes of SARS-CoV-2. The primer and probe sequences were designed according to the previous study.7 The sample was defined as negative if the cycle threshold (Ct) value exceeded 35 cycles. Details regarding the rRT-PCR protocol are provided in the Supplementary Appendix. The RNA copy number was calculated from the Ct values using the standard curve generated by dilution of the plasmid DNA. 

Ethics statement 

This study was approved by the Institutional Review Board of Korea University Guro Hospital (approval number: 2020GR0123). Informed consent was waived.

Result

The viral load in saliva decreased for first 2 hrs after using chlorhexidine gluconate solution mouthwash (0.12%, 15 mL), but increased back to normal from 2hrs to 4hrs duration.

Dental implants are medicated equipment used to replace, feel, and function like natural teeth. Its the latest trend on replacing missing teeth without getting the support from the adjacent teeth. Every year there are approximately five hundred thousand people getting dental implants done and over three million people had dental implants to date.

 

The post-operative care is always essential for all procedures, dental implants are not exceptional. Dental implants do need maintenance on daily basis just like natural teeth and good maintenance protocol follow up will always result in high longevity of the structure.

Visiting dentist once in six months is very essential as the dentist have unique equipment to clean thoroughly around the implant to eliminate any debris, plaque which causes viral and bacterial accumulation. These viral and bacteria will cause resorption of bone around the implant and may loosen the implant, to eliminate this problem it’s mandatory to visit your dentist at least once in six months. The cost of cleaning is inexpensive comparing to the cost of cleaning natural teeth.

How to take care of the implants at home?

Its very simple, just follow the list mentioned below to maintain healthy intraoral implant hygiene.

Use low abrasive toothpaste: some toothpaste may contain abrasives which will slowly erode the smooth polished layer of the implant which will cause plaque and bacterial accumulation. Its always do some research before buying toothpaste or ask your dentist for the best one. The toothpaste must not below 250 RDA (Relative Dentin Abrasivity ).

RDA is a measurement to find the abrasive effect of the toothpaste in the teeth.

how to clean dental implants

Soft-bristle brush: do use a soft or ultra-soft bristle toothbrush to brush your teeth and do not give high pressure on the implant teeth, brush twice daily to get the maximum results.

Use intraoral irrigator: this is a tool used as in the dental office to clean interdental space with a high-pressure water jet. This works as a dental floss to clean the plaque and debris around the teeth. This is also called waterfloss or waterpick.

water floss

Use Interdental brush: always remember to use nylon coated interdental brush to clean the tough regions present between the teeth or you can use super floss dipped in chlohex mouthwash to prevent retention of bacteria.

intrdental brush

In spite of several challenges dental implants are still the successful replacement of missing teeth, the above-mentioned cleansing instructions are mandatory to avoid peri-implantitis, a disease that can affect the lifetime of dental implants.

Poor dental hygiene and severity of Corona virus


British researchers Victoria Sampson a general dentist from a dental practice 38 Devonshire Street, London, Nawar Kamona from the Centre for Nutrition Education & Lifestyle Management (CNELM), London and Ariane Sampson from Orthodontics, Cambridge University Hospital Trust, United Kingdom combined to find the severity of COVID-19 severity in poor oral hygiene patients. Their study titled, “Could there be a link between oral hygiene and the severity of SARS-CoV-2 infections?” was published in the latest issue of the journal British Dental Journal.

The world health organization declared a global emergency on January 30th, 2020 due to an increase in the number of cases of COVID-19, this is also known as SARS-CoV-2 or novel coronavirus infection.

So much research has been done to date to know the risk factors associated with the disease, they say many patients have been recovered without any complications but some may need hospitalization, oxygen supplementation, and even ventilation. A few risk factors associated to increase the viral infection are high blood pressure, diabetes obesity, and heart disease.

The researchers wrote, “We explore the connection between high bacterial load in the mouth and post-viral complications, and how improving oral health may reduce the risk of complications from COVID-19”. They did research on the severity of the virus on patients with poor oral hygiene.

The authors wrote that during lung infection, there is a risk of oral secretions getting into the lungs, which could cause infection. Few of the bacteria present in the mouth that could cause such lung infections to include “Porphyromonas gingivalis, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Prevotella intermedia,”.Actually periodontitis or infection of the gums is one of the most prevalent causes of harmful bacteria in the mouth. These bacteria lead to the formation of cytokines such as Interleukin 1 (IL1) and Tumor necrosis factor (TNF), which can be detected in the saliva and can reach the lungs leading to infection within them. Thus, the researchers wrote, “inadequate oral hygiene can increase the risk of inter-bacterial exchanges between the lungs and the mouth, increasing the risk of respiratory infections and potentially post-viral bacterial complications.”

The result reveals that poor oral hygiene is not directly associated with COVID-19, but it reduces the associated risk factor of the virus such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. The authors wrote that “Good oral hygiene has been recognized as a means to prevent airway infections in patients, especially in those over the age of 70”,25% raised the risk of heart disease, thrice the risk of getting diabetes, and 20% raised the risk of getting high blood pressure.

bone-loss-1200x1440.jpg

Bone loss is caused by many reasons, the major reasons are, one is tooth damage and the other is periodontitis( gum infection). The bacteria involved in gum infection will eat away the existing bone surrounding the infected gum.

In this, the common bone loss is majorly due to loss of teeth which is left unreplaced. The jawbone shape is preserved due to the constant chewing pressure that is transmitted by the teeth, when the teeth are lost there is no pressure on the jaw bone which indirectly starts resorption. In the first year after tooth loss, there is approximately 25% of bone loss in that particular region and slowly continuous.

The bone which holds the teeth is known as the alveolar bone in dental terms, this is known as the ridge.  The ridge collapses slowly after tooth loss, The removal of the first and the second molar from the upper jow worsens the situation,  when either one or two teeth are removed there are chances of resorption of bone along with sinus wall expansion, this will further thin the bone in that particular region. 

use of dentures

 Dental dentures usually accelerate the bone loss,  when you wear a denture each time you bite the pressure is distributed over the ridge and not into the bone. This will start slowly resorbing the alveolar bone making the denture loose one fine day.

After fixed bridges

You may wonder why a small space is formed between the fixed bridges and your gum causing food impaction. This is because the space on the tooth removed region continues to reserve. Space continues to increase creating a lot of problems like food impaction and Dental caries in the adjacent teeth. 

Associated with periodontitis

As we have already seen, bone loss associated with periodontitis must be cured as soon as possible because in this situation the bone loss is really fast.

The possible treatment will be scaling, LANAP, flap procedure and  scaling and root planning (SRP)

 After the treatment, you must take on precautionary measures to maintain good and healthy gums. 

Bone loss due to bone density

This is a rare case, that can be identified by cone-beam CT,  the white the region on the radiograph is denser bone and the radiolucent region is bone with less density. the treatment is very difficult but the study shows that placement of few implants with body design to attract bone will increase bone density in the particular region.

Bone loss associated with the edentulous region

 This type can be easily treated by placing artificial teeth that also replaces the root part of the teeth. Dental implants are the best method to replace missing teeth because dental implants usually do not allow bone loss because the Ridge receives pressure in a similar way as the natural teeth and few implant designs facilitate bone growth around them.

Immediate placing dental implants are always a better choice because there is very minimal bone loss after the removal of teeth. 

A bone graft may be required if bone loss already present, the height and width of the ridge must be increased to compensate the implant which simulates the natural teeth.

Upper jaw otherwise known as maxilla has more chance for bone loss after tooth removal when maxilla is atrophied severely on the posteriors zygoma implant can help in replacement of teeth and when maxilla is severely atrophied on anterior and posterior then four zygoma implants can help in replacing the missing teeth

It may be also due to hormone imbalance, aging, misaligned teeth, and tumor.

It is a natural process when a tooth is removed it must be replaced as soon as possible otherwise the reduction of bone will be severe when left unreplaced for several years.
