  1. 1. Studies on Pellicle and Early Dental Plaque in Relation to Periodontal Conditions

    Author : Stefan G Rüdiger; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bacterial adherence; in vitro pellicle; in vivo pellicle; periodontitis-associated bacteria; gingival crevicular fluid; plasma proteins; dental biofilm; experimental gingivitis; chronic periodontitis; periodontal pocket; exposed root surfaces;

    Abstract : Background and Hypothesis: Bacterial receptors in dental pellicles may influence colonisation and subsequent plaque formation. Studies on such receptors in the dental pellicles and bacterial adherence have mostly been performed in vitro and focused on proteins of salivary origin. READ MORE

  2. 2. In vitro and in vivo studies of salivary films at solid/liquid interfaces

    University dissertation from Malmö : Malmö University. Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Ida Svendsen; Malmö University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN; ODONTOLOGY Biochemistry; ODONTOLOGI Biokemi; Medicine; saliva; proteins; adsorption; ellipsometry; gel electrophoresis;

    Abstract : A conditioning film, the pellicle, of which many salivary proteins are important constituents, covers the surfaces present in the mouth. The pellicle forms in a selective adsorption process, and it has protective and lubricating functions as well as an influence on the adherence of oral microbes that ultimately leads to the development of dental plaque.

  3. 3. Effect of surface characteristics on cellular adherence and activity

    University dissertation from Faculty of Odontology, Malmö University

    Author : Marjan Dorkhan; Malmö University.; [2014]
    Keywords : ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; Sciences; Bacteria; microbial biofilm; dental implant; streptococci; oral bacteria; salivary pellicle; early colonizers; titanium oxide; microbial activity; oral keratinocytes; gingival fibroblasts; cell attachment; surface modification; anodic oxidation; anatase;

    Abstract : After insertion of the dental implant into the jaw, the neck of the implant protruding through the mucosa (implant abutment) will be exposed to the complex environment of the mouth. This results in the formation of a conditioning protein coat (pellicle) derived from saliva and/or gingival crevicular fluid. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the role of plasma proteins in bacterial adhesion to dental surfaces

    University dissertation from Faculty of Odontology, Malmö University

    Author : Stefan G Rüdiger; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Bacterial receptors in dental pellicles could influence colonisation and subsequent plaque formation. Studies of such receptors in dental pellicles and bacterial adherence have often focused on proteins of salivary origin. We have only a limited knowledge of the receptor functions of plasma proteins reaching the pellicle via the crevicular fluid. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the adsorption behaviour of saliva and purified salivary proteins at solid/liquid interfaces

    University dissertation from Swedish Dental Association

    Author : Liselott Lindh; Malmö University.; [2002]
    Keywords : Medicine; acidic proline-rich proteins; adsorption; BSM; diffusion; ellipsometry; interfaces; mass transport limitation; mucins; MUC5B; saliva; salivary proteins; statherin; surface properties;

    Abstract : Salivary proteinaceous substances are known to play important roles in the formation of the salivary pellicle. The aim of this study was to investigate some aspects of the interfacial behaviour of selected purified salivary proteins, as well as human saliva secretions, using time resolved in situ ellipsometry.
