Sugar and tooth decays are bound closely. The mechanisms of destruction of the tooth from the glycolyse are known. The role played by the food in the development of the caries is unique. Foods sweetened of all ways, rich in sucrose are responsible of the intervening of the carious lesions. The transformation of the fermentable sugars in lactic with the(More)
The exaggerated consumption of sugars under its various associate shapes to an insufficiency of mouth and tooth hygiene could drag some tooth decays. These tooth decays, when they demonstrate, leads to a destruction of the temporary teeth, with for corollaries of the aesthetic and functional problems. The therapeutic are not always apparent especially when(More)
The present study, using classical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy, has shown the dental hard tissues of the fangs of Viperidae (poisonous serpents with terrestrial or semi-aquatic habits) to be constituted of: a calcified outer layer, 0.4 microns thick, made of very small(More)
In the framework of an important evaluation survey on absences at work position due to bucco-dental problems, a preliminary study in undertaken in school environment on a sample of 278 children attending examination classes from Abidjan three districts (Adjamé, Williamsville, Cocody). Results show that: 34.89% among children have been absent at least one(More)
The present paper using classical and transmission electron microscopy brings the first data on the pulp of the fangs of Viperidae (poisonous serpents with terrestrial or semi-aquatic habits). The pulp of the fangs of Viperidae shows a poor collagen and fibroblast content and a high developed vascular system. The odontoblasts are polarized, with a high(More)
