Medicina Oral, um movimento mundial

Segue abaixo, matéria divulgada no grupo da Odontologia Hospitalar.

O resumo conta sobre a necessidade de se adequar aos novos tempos e se estimular as parcerias com a Medicina, na Alemanha, Austria e Suíça.

Achei que ficou faltando, no escopo citado, o atendimento do paciente comprometido, a prevenção aos problemas médicos e a própria Odontologia Hospitalar.

Mas é preciso ler o artigo para saber a ideia completa de como é vista a Medicina Oral por estes autores (o problema é que o texto é em alemão, alguém pode ajudar…).

Abstract

Oral medicine is a dental specialty that bridges the traditional areas of health between dentistry and medicine. International descriptions reflect this and oral medicine is defined as “the dental speciality placed at the interface between medicine and dentistry and is concerned with the diagnosis and management of (non-dental) pathology affecting the oral and maxillofacial region.” Oral medicine specialists provide clinical care to patients with a wide variety of orofacial conditions, including oral mucosal diseases, orofacial pain syndromes, salivary gland disorders, and oral manifestations of systemic diseases. There is a growing need to implement this specialty globally: due to the rapid progress in both medicine and dentistry, and to the growing percentage of senior citizens in many countries, the adequate diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases will become even more complex in the future. In this article, the authors’ intention is to point out that oral medicine is neither a recognized specialty nor a distinct field of study in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland; thus, the need for postgraduate training in this field in countries where oral medicine is not a specialization is emphasized.
