Erosive and cariogenicity
potential of pediatric drugs: study of physicochemical parameters.
Biochemical composition and cariogenicity
of dental plaque formed in the presence of sucrose or glucose and fructose.
with an emphasis on childhood dental caries.
The potential of dental caries to speak to chicha consumption lies in the reduced cariogenicity
of the drink when compared to other preparations of maize.
Based on the [alpha]-amylase inhibitory activity of tea extracts, the hypothesis has been raised that this activity could be involved in the reduction of the cariogenicity
of starch-containing foods [41, 42].
mutans to form biofilms contributes to its cariogenicity
. However, it has been reported that the ability of S.
of dental carries involves the adherence of bacteria on the tooth followed by the formation of glycocalyx, a sticky glucan that is synthesized by the action of the bacterial enzyme glucosyl transferase on sucrose (Ferrazzano et al, 2011).
The usefulness of caries frequency, depth, and location in determining cariogenicity
and past subsistence: A test on early and later agriculturalists from the Peruvian Coast.
Physical and biochemical studies of Streptococcus mutans sediments suggest new factors linking the cariogenicity
of plaque with its extracellular polysaccharide content.
The bacteria not only metabolize sugars to produce lactic acid that attacks the dental enamel, but also synthesize extracellular polysaccharides, mainly dextran, a component of the plaque, thus reinforcing cariogenicity
of easily assimilated carbohydrates .
