Insertion of fixed interceptive orthodontic devices with bands and brackets increases the caries risk, as such devices provide artificial niches for cariogenic
microorganisms such as Streptococcus mutans (S.
(7) Among these methods, F varnishes as a tooth surface coverage seems to be a simple and effective way to protect at-risk enamel against acid (8) provided by bacterial metabolism during a cariogenic
From this perspective, the aim of this study is to evaluate the in vitro antibacterial activity of thymol, linalool, and citronellol, on cariogenic
Dependent sample t-test was used to compare ECL as well as caries history with frequency of cariogenic
food intake, and cariogenic
intake during main meals, between meals and before bedtime.
The presence of these bacteria also decreases plaque pH, which further promotes the reproduction of cariogenic
bacteria while suppressing cariostatic bacteria (Lingstrom et al.
mutans strain that may be less cariogenic
than other strains, because it adheres less well to tooth surfaces and produces less acid.
During caries ablation, temperature changes were measured with an infrared thermal camera while real-time PCR analysis was used to determine the presence of cariogenic
This brings change in cariogenic
flora into non-cariogenic flora by reducing growth, metabolism and bioflim formation by cariogenic
Establishment of an early (2016) (16) dental home may decrease ECC prevalence and reduce risk United States factors related to cariogenic
(Manchester, NH) feeding practices.
The biofilm plays an important role in the cause of tooth decay, the cariogenic
microorganisms such as Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus sanguis, Streptococcus salivarius, Streptococcus mitis, Streptococcus oralis and Lactobacillus acidophilus play a vital role in the etiology of the dental caries (11).
Nonetheless, the orthodontic brackets have also effect on good oral hygiene leading to plaque accumulation and increase in cariogenic
microorganisms in saliva like candida and dental plaque of patients [5, 6] as the presence of oral braces increases the frequency of colonization by Candida species [6-8].
