The effect of trace elements on the growth and fermantation by oral streptococci and actinomyces.
Abstract On the assumption that some trace elements in or dissolved from the surface of dental enamel may modify the caries attack or plaque metabolism, 25 minor elements found in the outer enamelExpand

Artificial caries produced by different oral bacterial cultures incubated with bovine dental enamel.
Early caries-like lesions were formed in enamel incubated in glucose broths inoculated with different cultures of oral bacteria. Analysis of the broths by gas chromatography revealed, afterExpand

Clinical trial in mentally retarded of chlorhexidine dental gel: bacteriology.
A dental gel containing 1 % chlorhexidine was applied daily to the teeth of mentally retarded patients for a period of 6 months. Although possible antimicrobial effects were noted, the gel had noExpand

A survey of the flora of dental plaque in caries-free people in New Zealand.
The bacterial composition of supragingival plaque of six caries-free New Zealand subjects was studied. The main genera found were Actinomyces, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Veillonella, Bacteroides,Expand

The Ureolytic Microflora of Immature Dental Plaque Before and After Rinsing with a Urea-based Mineralizing Solution
Ureolytic bacteria were detected in the plaque flora of six subjects, and included members of the genera Actinomyces, Bifidobacterium, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus. Proportions of theseExpand

The effect of fluorhydroxyapatite in experimental human dental plaque on its pH, acid production and soluble calcium, phosphate and fluoride levels following glucose challenge.
Plaque grown on terylene gauze in the mouths of 5 volunteers was treated with a mineralizing solution intermittently for 4 days to deposit fluorhydroxyapatite. Control plaque grown simultaneously wasExpand

Acidogenic fermentation of pentose alcohols by human dental plaque microorganisms.
Abstract The potential non-cariogenicity of the pentose sugar alcohols xylitol, l -arabinitol and ribitol was estimated by determining their fermenting properties with 50 separate samples of dentalExpand
