According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately half of all adults in the United States suffer from gum disease. Without consistent care and attention, a person's gums will become swollen and infected. Swelling and infection will in turn lead to a buildup of plaque and bacteria, a condition known as gingivitis. Left untreated, gingivitis will cause the structures supporting the teeth to weaken, leading to the condition known as gum disease or periodontitis.

The effect of proper oral hygiene on our overall health is only now being fully understood. Numerous research efforts have shown that there is a clear statistical link between gum disease and cardiovascular disease. However, the mechanism underlying this connection is not fully understood.

Two basic mechanisms are currently being studied which scientists hypothesize are the basis for the connection between gum disease and cardiovascular disease.

  1. As mentioned above, gum disease is associated with inflammation and infection. Scientists believe that the bacteria associated with infection are able to enter the bloodstream via the diseased gums themselves. In other words, gum disease is both the cause of infection and the doorway which allows bacteria to enter the bloodstream.

Once in the bloodstream, bacteria can reach multiple destinations, where it will cause inflammation, infection and destruction in susceptible areas. The heart, in particular, and the cardiovascular system, in general, are highly susceptible to damage caused by infection.

Included in the evidence for this hypothesis is the fact that researchers have shown that the most common bacteria found in the coronary arteries is P. gingivalis. Combined with the fact that more than half of all adults in the United States suffer from some form of gum disease, it is not surprising that this particular bacteria is the type most commonly found in the coronary arteries.

  1. Generally speaking, inflammation is a protective mechanism which occurs as a response to pathogens. However, chronic inflammation often leads to illness or disease. In the case of gum disease, it is hypothesized that chronic inflammation and infection lead to inflammation of the cardiovascular system. Eventually this cardiovascular inflammation will itself becomes chronic, causing cardiovascular disease.

As mentioned above, researchers have shown that the most common bacteria found in the coronary arteries is P. gingivalis. This bacteria is a known cause of inflammation.              

So, in other worlds, don’t be surprised if your cardiologist reminds you to be consistent and careful about taking care of our teeth and gums. Proper oral hygiene may allow us to prevent or slow the devastating effects of the nation's number one killer, heart disease.

The humble fruit fly, drosophila melanogaster, is not merely a kitchen pest. Its short lifecycle and large number of offspring have made it a favorite for genetic research, including the massive Human Genome Project (HGP).

The fly’s genes were studied and mapped in the early 1900s, but it was not until the 1990s that international collaboration allowed the mapping all human genes, collectively known as the human “genome.” The project was completed in 2003, with over 20,000 human genes identified.

Since 2003, this new data has allowed the blossoming of genetic research and genetic counseling. It has also produced a new industry: “over-the-counter” genetic testing. With just a small sample of genetic material, usually obtained through a swab of saliva, a variety of companies are ready to sell you a “genetically-based prediction” of your response to a variety of medications. There’s just one problem: the tests are not necessarily accurate.

While genetically tailor-made treatments for various conditions are currently in the research phase, and perhaps one day we truly will be able to find out useful information about our health at low cost, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that today is not that day.

The FDA published an alert to consumers and clinicians that the agency has not reviewed many of the claims made by genetic laboratories, and that those claims may not be backed by scientific evidence. The FDA warns of the “inappropriate treatment decisions and potentially serious health consequences” for people who rely on these tests, and recommends that no one change their medication based on an over-the-counter genetic test.

The FDA also announced that they are investigating developers who use misleading advertising to sell genetic tests. The agency requests that anyone who has a problem with any laboratory test files a report via Medwatch, the FDA’s Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program.

At the Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers, we embrace innovation, but do not fall prey to trendy promises. We care for our residents with clinically-proven programming, nutritious and delicious meals, and, of course, compassionate care from specially trained caregivers and therapists.

We pride ourselves on offering the very best of care in a patient-centered environment. This means always listening to our residents and patients and respecting their capabilities, while helping them to achieve maximum functionality and independence. And always maintaining the highest professional and quality standards in our staff and our facilities.

The anterior olfactory nucleus, a region in the forebrain that registers odor, has recently been implicated in areas that range far beyond — but is still linked with — the sense of smell.

Recently, a team of Swedish investigators published a study in the Journal of Neuroscience, reporting that breathing through the nose is more helpful for the storage and consolidation of memories than breathing through the mouth.

There are two important aspects of the study’s findings. The first is that memory is better stored and consolidated while breathing through the nose. The second concerns the process that mediates between breathing, learning, and memory retrieval.

The team pointed out that although their scientific investigation of the relationship between breathing and memory, as well as the technology they are using for their investigations, is new, the concept of breathing affecting our behavior and our memory is actually very old.

In the words of lead author Dr. Artin Arshamian,"This knowledge has been around for thousands of years, in such areas as meditation. But no one has managed to prove scientifically what actually goes on the brain. We now have tools that can reveal new clinical knowledge."

The anterior olfactory nucleus also plays a lead role in another study, published in Nature Communications, which shows that people with good spatial memory are better at identifying smells than people with poor spatial memory.

The sense of smell even seems to hold a key to dementia risk. A study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society found a strong connection between a person’s ability to identify smells and their risk of developing dementia.

Losing one’s sense of smell may prove to be an strong indicator of dementia risk, and the study’s researchers posit that risk of dementia may be one day be able to be assessed through a simple, inexpensive smell test.

A hospital stay is difficult, especially for an older person. Going home? Not necessarily much easier.

Getting to the “new normal” may involve postsurgical wound care, a new diet, new medications, and a flurry of follow-up appointments. The home may even need to be retrofitted with grab bars and ramps, even for a short-term recovery.

Transitioning to home from the hospital is so difficult, in fact, that 20% of Medicare patients discharged from a hospital must be readmitted within the month.

This transition can be made easier — and safer — by including a stay in a short-term rehabilitation program. A short-term rehab program, like that at the Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers, can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks, depending on the patient’s condition, and can make all the difference in the patient’s recovery.

Healthcare professionals and families throughout New Jersey have come to rely on Regency Rehab to fill this crucial transitional role between the hospital and home.

Regency Rehab’s approach to rehabilitation is informed and driven by the same unique experience and philosophy that guides our long-term care mission. We think of each individual in our care as a “total patient” while focusing on specific rehabilitation needs. This approach also means that we recognize that some of our patients will not benefit from aggressive therapy and that for others, returning home to independent living may not be a realistic goal. In these cases, our programs are designed to ensure high levels of comfort and stability, while helping to achieve maximum independence and quality of life.

At Regency, we maintain the highest professional and quality standards in our staff and our facilities. Our 25 years of excellent care have led to us being awarded a Best Nursing Homes award by US News & World Today, a 5-Star rating by USA Today, and an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau, among many other awards.

Of all types of patient centered therapy and post-acute rehabilitation, the nursing home therapist has arguably the most optimal platform for helping patients to restore strength and achieve prior level of functioning.

In fact, therapists in in-patient postacute rehab and skilled nursing centers are uniquely positioned to provide the kind of robust therapy required for a patient to hopefully regain his/her independence.

The admission to a sub-acute care center for in-patient rehabilitation typically follows on the heels of an acute admission to a hospital and a 3 night Medicare qualifying in-patient hospital stay. This is the second stage in an evolving road to recovery for the patient and is an indication that the patient has now stabilized sufficiently to allow for an aggressive and pro-active therapy regimen.

The particular treatment plan is tailor made to accommodate the needs of the individual patient and will often incorporate a combination of all 3 therapy disciplines (physical, speech and occupational therapy).

Prior to the patient’s safe return to home and as part of the discharge planning, the therapist will also prepare the patient and family with the pertinent information and education to allow for a seamless transition back into their old environment.

This education will include things like pivoting and transferring techniques, sit-to stand exercises, using stairs and using adaptive equipment.

Regency Heritage Post-acute Rehabilitation NJ, Regency Gardens Post-acute Rehabilitation NJ, Regency Grande Post-acute Rehabilitation NJ and Regency Park Post-acute Rehabiliation NJ, offers the very best in comprehensive in-patient care, subacute rehab and post-acute rehabilitation.
