Microbial complexes in subgingival plaque.
TLDR
The purpose of the present investigation was to attempt to define communities using data from large numbers of plaque samples and different clustering and ordination techniques, which related strikingly to clinical measures of periodontal disease particularly pocket depth and bleeding on probing.
Comparisons of subgingival microbial profiles of refractory periodontitis, severe periodontitis, and periodontal health using the human oral microbe identification microarray.
TLDR
Patients with RP presented a distinct microbial profile compared to patients in the GR and PH groups, as determined by HOMIM.
Cultivable Anaerobic Microbiota of Severe Early Childhood Caries
TLDR
It is concluded that anaerobic culture detected as wide a diversity of species in ECC as that observed using cloning approaches.
Photodynamic treatment of endodontic polymicrobial infection in vitro.
Diet and Caries-associated Bacteria in Severe Early Childhood Caries
TLDR
S-ECC children with lesion recurrence ate fewer putative caries-protective foods than children without new lesions, and S. mutans-positive children had higher food cariogenicity scores.
The effect of SRP on the clinical and microbiological parameters of periodontal diseases.
TLDR
Clinical improvement post-SRP was accompanied by a modest change in theSubgingival microbiota, primarily a reduction in P. gingivalis, B. forsythus and T. denticola, suggesting potential targets for therapy and indicating that radical alterations in the subgingival bacteria may not be necessary or desirable in many patients.
Evidence for cigarette smoking as a major risk factor for periodontitis.
TLDR
Attributable risk percents from prevalence data suggest that among nondiabetic subjects, a large proportion, perhaps as much as 51% of the periodontitis in the 19 to 30 year old group and 32% of that in the 31 to 40 years old group, is associated with smoking.
Microbiota of Severe Early Childhood Caries before and after Therapy
TLDR
Several species, including S. wiggsiae and S. exigua, are associated with the ecology of advanced caries, that successful treatment is accompanied by a change in the microbiota, and that severe ECC is diverse, with influences from selected bacteria or from diet.
Microbiota of health, gingivitis, and initial periodontitis.
TLDR
The data suggest that B. forsythus C. rectus and S. noxia were major species characterizing sites converting from periodontal health to disease, and different mechanisms may be involved in increased attachment loss.
Relationships among gingival crevicular fluid biomarkers, clinical parameters of periodontal disease, and the subgingival microbiota.
TLDR
Clinicallyhealthy sites from subjects with periodontitis have higher levels of GCF biomarkers and periodontal pathogens than clinically healthy sites from periodontally healthy subjects.
