Dental calculus: recent insights into occurrence, formation, prevention, removal and oral health effects of supragingival and subgingival deposits.

  • Medicine
    European journal of oral sciences
  • 1 October 1997
TLDR
Dental calculus is calcified dental plaque, composed primarily of calcium phosphate mineral salts deposited between and within remnants of formerly viable microorganisms, which is the result of petrification of dental plaque biofilm.
Use of synthetic polymer gels for artificial carious lesion preparation.
TLDR
The results show that polyacrylic acid is extremely useful and effective as a surface-protective agent for artificial carious lesion preparation and the rate and histology of mineral repair are not noticeably influenced by the resin content in solution.
A longitudinal microhardness analysis of fluoride dentifrice effects on lesion progression in vitro.
TLDR
Analysis of published data indicated that the longitudinal microhardness technique, while limited in some respects, can provide useful estimates of remineralization/lesion-progression areas.
Plaque levels of patients with fixed orthodontic appliances measured by digital plaque image analysis.
TLDR
Plaque coverage in orthodontic patients is extremely high and is 2 to 3 times higher than levels observed in high plaque-forming adults without appliances participating in clinical studies of the digital plaque image analysis system.
Reactivity of fluoride dentifrices with artificial caries. I. Effects on early lesions: F uptake, surface hardening and remineralization.
A pH-cycling model has been used to examine the effects of fluoride dentifrices on the saliva-mediated repair of early carious lesions in vitro. Fluoride reactivity was characterized by fluoride uptak
The Application of in Vitro Models to Research on Demineralization and Remineralization of the Teeth

TLDR
Recent applications of in vitro test methods in both mechanistic and profile caries research, including the inexpensive and rapid-yet sensitive-assessment of F anticaries efficacy within fluoride-active systems, are documents.
The comparative efficacy of stabilized stannous fluoride dentifrice, peroxide/baking soda dentifrice and essential oil mouthrinse for the prevention of gingivitis.
TLDR
This double-blind parallel-design clinical study compared the efficacy of a stabilized stannous fluoride dentifrice to a conventional NaF dentif Rice for the control of plaque, gingivitis and gingival bleeding over six months of product use and found the efficacy was supported and the lack of efficacy for baking soda and peroxide dentif rice for the Control of plaque.
A method to study sustained antimicrobial activity of rinse and dentifrice components on biofilm viability in vivo.
TLDR
The proposed method holds promise for assessment of both immediate and retained antimicrobial actions of oral treatments against dental plaque in vivo.
The Comparative Sensitivity of Intra-oral, in vitro, and Animal Models in the ‘Profile’ Evaluation of Topical Fluorides
  • D. J. White
  • Medicine
    Journal of dental research
  • 1 April 1992
TLDR
In this paper, in vitro, animal, and in situ methods are reviewed in terms of the historical basis for their development, protocols currently used in testing, and the primary advantages and limitations of each as applied to ‘profile’ applications.
A comparison of stabilized stannous fluoride dentifrice and triclosan/copolymer dentifrice for efficacy in the reduction of gingivitis and gingival bleeding: six-month clinical results.
TLDR
This parallel-group, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial directly compared the efficacy of two antimicrobial dentifrice formulations for the control of plaque, gingivitis and gingival bleeding during six months of use following a pre-test randomization period to establish the superior clinical efficacy of a stabilized stannous fluoride dentif Rice relative to a triclosan/copolymer dentif rice in the chemotherapeutic control.
