  1. 1. Xylitol and its effect on oral ecology clinical studies in children and adolescents

    University dissertation from Umeå : Odontologi

    Author : Pernilla Lif Holgerson; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chewing gum; dental plaque; dose-response relationship; interdental plaque-pH; oral microorganisms; saliva; xylitol; ODONTOLOGY Paedodontics; ODONTOLOGI Pedodonti;

    Abstract : Xylitol, classified as a natural sugar substitute, has for about 35 years been known as an agent that may act against caries. The mechanism of action; how it inhibits mutans streptococci (MS) and the clinical dose-response relationship are not however fully investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Porphyrins and heme in microorganisms Porphyrin content and its relation to phototherapy and antimicrobial treatments in vivo and in vitro

    University dissertation from Umeå : Odontologi

    Author : Jonas Fyrestam; Conny Östman; Jonas Bergquist; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Porphyrins; heme; phototherapy; antimicrobial resistance; singlet oxygen; photosensitizer; bacteria; HPLC-MS MS; oral bacteria; Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans; Porphyromonas gingivalis; Escherichia coli; Analytical Chemistry; analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : One of the greatest threats to human health is increasing antimicrobial resistance among pathogens, and finding alternatives for treatment of bacterial infections is of highest importance together with a more controlled use of antibiotics. Porphyrins and heme have both been shown to be a promising class of compounds for inactivation of bacteria; porphyrins by their excellent properties to act as a photosensitizer, and heme by its importance as an iron source during a bacterial infection in vertebrates.

  3. 3. Molecular analysis of the oral microbiota of dental diseases

    University dissertation from Umeå : Odontologi

    Author : Eleni Kanasi; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; early childhood caries; early periodontitis; 16S rDNA cloning and sequencing; whole genomic DNA probes; oligonucleotide DNA probes; PCR; diversity; molecular; aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans; serotypes; ODONTOLOGY Oral microbiology; ODONTOLOGI Oral mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Traditionally, bacterial culture has been used for bacterial detection, allowing study of living microorganisms. Molecular methods are rapid and allow simultaneous identification of numerous species and uncultivated phylotypes. READ MORE

  4. 4. In vivo evaluations of the neutralizing effect of a hydroxyl ion-releasing resin composite and a prophylactic gel on plaque acidogenicity measured by the microtouch method

    University dissertation from Umeå : Odontologi

    Author : Anitha Persson; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; caries; clinical; buffering; elderly; plaque pH; resin composite; restorations; microorganisms; ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI;

    Abstract : The prevalence of dental caries has decreased dramatically in most developed countries since the sixties and the number of remaining teeth in adults has increased during the last decades. Elderly as a group will during aging become an increasing risk group for caries. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Malmö University, Faculty of Odontology

    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
