Fluid transport and bacterial penetration along root canal fillings.
Findings indicate that fluids transport through obturated root canals, most of which do not allow the passage of bacteria, are limited to the slight and gross leakage categories. Expand
Microbiological evaluation of dental unit water systems in general dental practice in Europe.
A substantial proportion of DUWS have high levels of microbial contamination, irrespective of country, type of equipment and source water, and the need for effective mechanisms to reduce the microbial burden within DUWS is emphasized. Expand
Total and Free Fluoride in Toothpastes from Some Non-Established Market Economy Countries
In 101 fluoride toothpastes, bought in local shops in Burkina Faso (n = 3), China (n = 5), Myanmar (n = 22), Nepal (n = 19), Philippines (n = 13), Syria (n = 22), Togo (n = 7) and Vietnam (n = 10),Expand
Comparison of the Efficacies of Disinfectants To Control Microbial Contamination in Dental Unit Water Systems in General Dental Practices across the European Union
Overall, the continuously applied disinfection products performed better than those applied intermittently, and Dentosept gave the most consistent and sustained antimicrobial effect over time. Expand
The fate and the role of bacteria left in root dentinal tubules.
The available clinical and experimental evidence supports the use of antibacterial dressings in cases where the root canal space remains temporarily unobturated after removal of necrotic and infected pulp tissue and there is no evidence, however, that special measures should be taken to kill the bacteria in the dentinal tubules.

Particles and molecules in endodontic leakage.
Investigation to find out to what degree obturation prevents leakage of bacteria-sized particles or large protein molecules, and if leakage of the commonly used dye methylene blue is comparable with that of a small bacterial metabolic product of similar molecular size. Expand
Microbiological and clinical effects of chlorhexidine enclosed in fixtures of 3I-Titamed implants.
Application of a 0.2% chlorhexidine solution at second-stage surgery inhibits growth or acquisition of bacteria in the fixtures, and in both test and control groups, the crevicular fluid flow as well as the gingival index decreased during the experimental period. Expand
Plaque and systemic disease: a reappraisal of the focal infection concept.
The review presented here covers metastatic local and systemic disease secondary to the accumulation of plaque or the formation of other pathogenic microbial depots in the mouth, to wit metastatic infection due to transient bacteremia, metastatic immunological injury, and metastatic toxic injury.
