Self-assembling Peptide Scaffolds Promote Enamel Remineralization
TLDR
The results suggest that self-assembling peptides may be useful in the modulation of mineral behavior during in situ dental tissue engineering.
The chemistry of enamel caries.
TLDR
For the future, delivering fluoride deep into the lesion would appear to offer the prospect of improved repair, and elucidation of the role of organic material may also reveal putative mechanisms for encouraging repair and/or protecting the enamel mineral.
Architecture of Intact Natural Human Plaque Biofilms Studied by Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy
TLDR
An in situ device for the in vivo generation of intact dental plaque biofilms on natural tooth surfaces in human subjects showed a more open architecture, consistent with recent models of biofilm structure from other habitats and has important implications for the delivery of therapeutics to desired targets within the plaque.
Erythrosine is a potential photosensitizer for the photodynamic therapy of oral plaque biofilms.
TLDR
P PDT using erythrosine as photosensitizer shows excellent potential as a treatment for oral plaque biofilms, suggesting that temporal changes in biofilm architecture and composition affect susceptibility to PDT.
Penetration of Fluoride into Natural Plaque Biofilms
TLDR
Penetration of fluoride into plaque biofilms during brief topical exposure is restricted, which may limit anti-caries efficacy, and fluoride penetration increased with duration of NaF exposure.
The chemistry of enamel development.
TLDR
Towards the end of secretion, matrix is replaced by fluid followed by massive crystal growth during maturation, probably as a result of comprehensive destruction of molecules which might impair crystal growth.
The developing enamel matrix: nature and function.
TLDR
The aim of this review was to survey the current knowledge of enamel matrix proteins with a view to suggesting possible functions of these proteins, which could lead to incomplete maturation of the enamel and the eruption of dysplastic tissue.
Variatoon in composition of dental enamel within thin ground tooth sections.
TLDR
The volume of tissue occupied by the mineral and the significance of the composition patterns with respect to enamel formation and caries are discussed.
Enhancement of erythrosine-mediated photodynamic therapy of Streptococcus mutans biofilms by light fractionation.
TLDR
Erythrosine-mediated PDT of S. mutans biofilms can be further enhanced by fractionation of the applied light dose by fractionating the delivered light dose into a series of shorter pulses.
Effect of surface zone deproteinisation on the access of mineral ions into subsurface carious lesions of human enamel.
TLDR
Results indicated that uptake was improved by removal of organic material, and the role of organic (proteinaceous) material in restricting the movement of mineral ions into carious lesions in vitro.
