Maternity wards of the state of health of the state of Amazonas will offer, starting this Tuesday (20), the dental service for patients who need to be admitted to these units for long periods. The State Department of Health (Susam) implemented the new service in six hospitals of the state to address both the prevention of dental disease as the solution of the problems identified.

The dentists will make periodic assessments of all patients admitted to the Intensive Care Units (ICU's), Intensive Care Units (ICU's) and also that babies are with their mothers in treatment through the Kangaroo method.

Patients are hospitalized for long periods at these locations and the need to follow up with the dentist prevent diseases related to teeth and can bring further damage to the patient in the longer term, says the state health secretary, Rosemary Wilson.

The secretary announced that patients undergoing treatment in ICU UTI'se's usually make use of strong medication to treat the diseases of which were victims and these drugs have side effects that affect other areas such as braces.

The secretary also says that the work of these dentists will be more preventative and that they will act to avoid that patients will develop disease during hospitalization.

In addition to preventive work dentists also will work to solve problems. They work seamlessly with multidisciplinary teams of hospitals and clinical cases identified will be discussed with everyone in search of the best solution. We have mothers who are admitted to the ICU if they have dental problems that had not been treated before. These problems, as a simple decay can worsen and become a bigger problem in the future, explains the manager of maternity Susam, Monica Melo.

She says that depending on the case of the treatment can be done with medicine, for the simplest cases, or even surgery to extract a tooth for example. Everything will be discussed and the solution will be taken jointly by the whole team, taking into consideration what is best for the patient at that time.

Regarding the newborn dentists will work to identify oral problems that hinder breastfeeding and can bring future problems for the child. Some children have problems such as a lisp, which hinder breastfeeding and good development, but which are easy to solve. These problems can be solved immediately after diagnosis, explains Monica Melo.

<b> Kangaroo Care </ b>

With newborns who are undergoing treatment at Kangaroo method dentists will also guide the evaluation and mothers about the care that they should have with the mouths of babes. They will guide mothers on the oral hygiene of children, to prevent the onset of disease in the future, inform the manager.

The kangaroo method is used in premature babies who need to be hospitalized under medical care, but who do not need to stay in incubators. They are accommodated in tracks tissues and are glued to the mother's body. These babies are breastfed by mothers directly and need this care with oral hygiene, like all babies, so they can have healthy teeth guaranteed.
