Creaky Joints and Bleeding Gums: RA and Periodontitis

Jun 22, 2020 8:00 pm

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory arthritis affecting 1.3 million individuals in the United States. RA symptoms are due to an autoimmune response that leads to joint damage and significant societal burden related to patient discomfort and treatment costs. Several studies have indicated patients with RA have an increased prevalence of periodontal disease than those without RA or with other forms of arthritis. Current understanding of the pathogenesis of RA lacks a clear picture of the autoantibody response and its potential initiators, particularly specific serum antibodies directed to citrullinated peptides, which are associated with smoking, disease severity, periodontal disease, and microbiota. Additionally, the underlying mechanisms of bone resorption and synovial inflammation are similar to the pathogenesis of periodontitis. These common pathologic processes, shared risk factors, and potential initiating role of periodontal bacteria highlight the need for interprofessional management of patients with RA and periodontitis.

5 STEPS TO PRACTICING DENTISTRY PAIN-FREE

Jul 15, 2020 8:00 pm

Did you know that one-third of dentists who retire early are forced to, due to a musculoskeletal disorder? Untreated pain can result in physical & financial disaster!

Now, more than ever, during the COVID-19 pandemic, mental stress can add to physical demands in the operatory, resulting in pain. However, due to the multi-factorial nature of work-related pain in dentistry, rarely does a single intervention (i.e. new loupes, strength training) permanently resolve chronic pain issues.

Research reveals 5 key areas that are essential to effectively resolving work-related pain in dentistry. The sequence in which these are implemented is also integral to successfully resolving pain.
