Guiding Infection Control in Dentistry
Infection control practice in dental offices is essential to ensuring the public’s safety and retaining its confidence. To help reduce the risk of transmitting infectious diseases in dental environments, CDC published an updated Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings, which can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr. CDC recommendations guide infection control practices in dental offices nationally and globally and provide direction for the public, policy makers, and dental practitioners. These recommendations also affect technology development in the dental industry. In addition, CDC investigates disease transmission in dental offices and identifies emerging problems, such as implications of 2009 H1N1 influenza for clinicians.
Each year, more than 35,000 new cases of cancer of the mouth and throat (oral cavity and pharynx) are diagnosed, and more than 7,600 deaths occur. The 5-year survival rate for these cancers is only about 50%. Detection of cancer lesions in the early stages increases the survival rate for people with these cancers. CDC is exploring ways to improve data collection on oral cancers and their risk factors and is examining methods for identifying lesions or people with oral cancer at an earlier stage.
