Projects

SMART (Silver fluoride Modified Atraumatic Restorative Treatment) Clinical Trial (2018 - 2019)$69,722
Description
Managing tooth decay of primary teeth in young children using silver diamine fluoride to reduce cost, fear and pain. The aim of the project is to determine the best, and least invasive, practice to manage tooth decay of baby teeth in young (0-8 years) children using silver diamine fluoride (SDF). SDF is an antimicrobial liquid that can be brushed on to cavities quickly and easily, to painlessly and noninvasively stop the spread of cavities and even prevent tooth decay. We will compare the: tooth decay arrest and prevention abilities;relative cost effectiveness;clinical costs to the public health sector;acceptability to the child and their parent/carer, andthe ease of treatment for the dental clinician of:(1) 5% Sodium fluoride varnish (NaF) current practice is application every 3 months; or(2) 38% silver diamine fluoride (SDF) and potassium iodide (PI) and a sealant over the cavity this practice is called Zero Invasion Dentistry (ZID) and is 1 treatment and will last for 12 months.

Developing a protocol to predicting health outcomes through oral microbes (2018)$9,917
Description
Older people in residential aged care are vulnerable to aspiration pneumonia, which is a primary reason for hospitalisation. Links have been drawn between this vulnerability and poor oral hygiene, prompting interventions in teeth cleaning. To determine the effectiveness of teeth-cleaning interventions objective measures are needed, such as microbiological testing. The goal of this study is to develop and validate a microbiological measure of effective oral hygiene to be used in a large-scale intervention targeting oral hygiene in residential aged care facilities.

Improving the Oral Health of Tasmanians in Residential Aged Care (2017)$28,336
Description
This project seeks to improve and maintain the oral health of people who move into residential aged care by providing an objective way to document they are receiving effective oral care. The project is a staff initiative. It is the result of a suggestion by staff at the Fred French and Peace Haven Homes of Masonic Care Tasmania, Inc. during their participation in a current federally-funded initiative with researchers at the University of Tasmania. The specific aim of the funded project is to decrease cases of aspiration pneumonia through testing the effectiveness of a new model of oral health care. Staff have suggested the value of adding an objective way to obtain and regularly analyse oral bacteria and this is the focus of the project we are presenting to the TCF.Residents in aged care are particularly vulnerable to aspiration pneumonia. This type of pneumonia is directly related to poor oral health. Poor oral health alters the type of bacteria growing in the mouth and throat. If residents have a swallowing problem (dysphagia), they are more likely to aspirate material into their lungs. If residents with dysphagia have poor oral health, they aspirate pathogenic bacteria and this greatly increases the likelihood of aspiration pneumonia, resulting in unplanned hospitalisations and death. In Australia, the cost burden of this acquired pneumonia has been estimated at more than $500 million each year. The funded model being evaluated has three essential components: (i)Increase staff knowledge with the support of a Community of Practice including residents, healthcare professionals, community members, residential community leaders, legislators (to bridge the practice-policy divide), and on-site supervised dental/oral health therapy, nursing, and medical students,(ii)Provide daily evidence-based oral care a 3-month period of 2-minutes of teeth cleaning after meals using timed electric or regular toothbrushes, or daily denture care. For residents who cannot adjust to the electric toothbrushes, staff are developing 2-minute strategies for using regular toothbrushes, e.g., brushing to a series of enjoyed and resident selected 2-minute recorded songs,(iii)Monitor compliance from their ongoing experience, staff have suggested the potential advantages of the proposed objective and regular analysis of oral bacteria.Increasing and maintaining residents oral health will decrease the load of pathogenic oral bacteria and thus decrease residents risk for developing aspiration pneumonia. Understanding the type of pathogenic oral bacteria that are associated with aspiration pneumonia and ill health will further support staff to provide daily oral care. Bacteria will be gathered from non-invasive swabs of tissue from residents gum, hard palate, cheek, and tongue. Results of these regular analyses will reinforce how effective oral care can reduce the clinical indications of aspiration pneumonia and ill health and the personal and economic consequences of unplanned transfers or admissions to hospital. This cost-effective model can then be easily implemented in any residential aged care community.

Sustained Effective Oral Care to Significantly Reduce Aspiration Pneumonia experienced by Adults with Dementia in Residential Care (2016 - 2017)$99,572
Description
Oral care is critical to keeping the mouth clean and the body and brain as healthy as possible. This is especially the case for adults with dementia who rely on others for care. With poor oral health, harmful bacteria throughout the mouth cause tooth decay, gum inflammation, gum disease, and tooth loss. Frequently adults with dementia take multiple medications and the side-effects of these medications include reducing saliva and drying the mouth which in turn increase the harmful oral bacteria. When these harmful bacteria are breathed (or aspirated) into the lungs, the lungs become infected and aspiration pneumonia results. Adults with dementia, particularly those who live in residential communities, are vulnerable to aspiration pneumonia as they are often frail, not well nourished, have complicating medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, and swallowing problems, as well as needing help from others for their care. We know, from published studies, that vulnerable adults who have their own teeth need to brush their teeth for 2 minutes after each meal. Adults who wear dentures need to clean their dentures each day and take them out when they are planning to sleep. Whether they have their own teeth or wear dentures, all adults with dementia also need to rinse their mouth after each meal. Unfortunately, oral care for adults with dementia in residential communities remains inconsistent and fragmentary. Our studies have documented the barriers, real and perceived, that prevent systematic oral care and we have developed a protocol to overcome these barriers. This protocol has five components: (1) establishment of an innovative Community of Practice (CoP) including health care professionals in the community-at-large, policy-makers, and consumers, together with visionary residential care leaders and nurse-carer champion partners to support staff and drive practice change; (2) education of nurse-carer champions by CoP members; (3) ongoing education and training of all point-of-care staff by nurse-carer champions as they work with RACF-based dental/oral health therapy students, and are supported by CoP members and online resources; (4) implementation of daily evidence-based oral care by staff; and (5) regular audits of daily oral care by nurse-carer champions and the students to ensure its sustained implementation.To measure the effectiveness of our protocol, we will follow 60 residents in each of two residential care communities in Tasmania. We will document the number of cases of aspiration pneumonia these residents experience before and after a 3-month period of daily evidence-based oral care (component 4 of the protocol). We also will document the number of times these residents have been transferred to hospital or admitted to hospital before and after the 3-month period of daily oral care. To document improvements in the residents oral, nutritional and general health and their quality-of-life (QOL), we will use the following measures that are appropriate for adults with dementia: (i) Oral Health Assessment Tool (OHAT), (ii) Mini-Nutritional Assessment (MNA), (iii) 3-day food record, (iv) Yale Swallow Protocol that identifies any signs of swallowing difficulty, (v) Sit-to-Stand Manoeuvre that identifies any difficulties with strength and movement, and (vi) the EuroQol-5 dimension tool that documents residents perceptions of their ability to move, care for themselves, and participate in daily activities along with any pain, discomfort or anxiety they are experiencing. We will administer these measures to the residents before and after the 3-month period of evidence-based daily oral care. We will analyse the data and write reports about the findings. We will publish these reports in academic journals and magazines that are widely-read by the public. We will network with social media outlets (radio, television, and Facebook sites) and policy-makers to share our findings as widely as possible. We antic
