Diversity of Bacterial Populations on the Tongue Dorsa of Patients with Halitosis and Healthy Patients
TLDR
The predominant microbiota on the tongue dorsa of healthy subjects was different from that on the tongues of subjects with halitosis, and there are now over 600 species in the oral cavity. Expand
Periodontal Disease as a Specific, albeit Chronic, Infection: Diagnosis and Treatment
TLDR
The antimicrobial approach may be as effective as a surgical approach in the restoration and maintenance of a periodontally healthy dentition, this would give a cardiac or stroke patient and his or her physician a choice in the implementation of treatment seeking to improve the patient's periodontal condition so as to reduce and/or delay future cardiovascular events.

Predictors of Aspiration Pneumonia: How Important Is Dysphagia?
TLDR
Dysphagia was concluded to be an important risk for aspiration pneumonia, but generally not sufficient to cause pneumonia unless other risk factors are present as well, and a dependency upon others for feeding emerged as the dominant risk factor. Expand
Aspiration Pneumonia: Dental and Oral Risk Factors in an Older Veteran Population
TLDR
The importance of medical and dental factors in aspiration pneumonia in an older veteran population and the need for further research into these factors is investigated. Expand
The subgingival microbial flora during pregnancy.
TLDR
Pregnancy and specifically steroid hormones appear capable of influencing the normal bacterial flora and inducing alterations in the subgingival ecology. Expand

TLDR
Several candidate mouthrinses containing essential oils, ZnCl2, chlorine dioxide, or an oil:water-cetylpyridium chloride mouthrinse have reduced the organoleptic scores of individuals with moderate levels of oral malodor in the absence of tongue brushing. Expand
Functional units, chewing, swallowing, and food avoidance among the elderly.
TLDR
It is possible that compromised dental function results in the swallowing of poorly chewed food, food avoidance patterns, dietary inadequacies, and systemic changes favoring illness, reduced vigor, debilitation, and shortened life expectancy. Expand
Effects of estradiol and progesterone on Bacteroides melaninogenicus and Bacteroides gingivalis
TLDR
Steroids appeared to directly interact with the fumarate reductase system and foster the growth of B. melaninogenicus subsp. Expand

TLDR
Two general types of anaerobes are recognized, which would include those species capable of growth in the presence of oxygen levels as high as 2 to 8% and those that could be exposed to room atmosphere for 60 to 90 min without appreciable loss of viability. Expand
