Comparative Evaluation on Antimicrobial Activity of Theobromine and Two Commercial Kids Fluoride Toothpaste – An Invitro Study

Toothpaste containing theobromine containing toothpaste as shows higher antimicrobial effect against streptococcus mutans, lactobacillus acidophilus and enterococcus faecalis.

Comparison of the Antimicrobial Efficiency of Chlorhexidine And Cacao Bean Husk Extract Mouth Rinsesin Children

Comparison of antimicrobial efficiency of chlorhexidine and cacao bean husk extract mouth rinses in children found the difference in reduction of plaque and gingival index score between the two groups was not statistically significant at any of the time intervals.

Effect of theobromine in antimicrobial activity: An in vitro study

Theobromine though nonfluoridated toothpaste showed greater zones of inhibition than other commercially available fluoridated kid's toothpastes, and shows more antimicrobial effect against S. mutans, L. acidophilus, and E. faecalis, whereas almost a neutral effect with C. albicans.

Effects of theobromine addition on chemical and mechanical properties of a conventional glass ionomer cement.

It could be concluded that 1% theobromine addition to GIC can be a good strategy as it keeps some of its properties and improves microhardness and biofilm deposits strengthening its role in the preventive approach of dentistry.

Cocoa Bean Shell—A By-Product with Nutritional Properties and Biofunctional Potential

The aim of this review is to look over the chemical and nutritional composition of CBS and to revise the several uses that have been proposed in order to valorize this by-product for food, livestock feed, or industrial usages, but also for different medical applications.

Sustainable valorization of recycled low-density polyethylene and cocoa biomass for composite production

This research demonstrated that it is possible the combination of recycled low-density polyethylene and lignocellulosic wastes for the production of materials with high added value.

Chocolate mouth rinse: Effect on plaque accumulation and mutans streptococci counts when used by children.

Cocoa bean husk extract (CBHE) is highly effective in reducing mutans streptococci counts and plaque deposition when used as a mouth rinse by children.

Antimicrobial efficacy of various disinfecting solutions in reducing the contamination of the toothbrush -- a comparative study.

It can be concluded that all the solutions are effective in toothbrush decontamination, but 3% neem has greater efficacy than other solutions.

Identification of Cariostatic Substances in the Cacao Bean Husk: Their Anti-glucosyltransferase and Antibacterial Activities

Ch chromatographic purification revealed high-molecular-weight polyphenolic compounds and unsaturated fatty acids as active components of the cacao bean husk, likely caused by these biologically active constituents.

Anti-cariogenic Properties of a Water-soluble Extract from Cacao

The addition of a water-soluble extract from cacao-extracted powder (CEPWS) to a cariogenic model food, a white chocolate-like diet that contains 35% sucrose, significantly reduced caries scores in SPF rats infected with Streptococcus sobrinus 6715, suggesting that the addition of CEPWS toCariogenic food could be useful in controlling dental caries.

Evaluation of the contamination and disinfection methods of toothbrushes used by 24- to 48-month-old children.

Although Brushtox presented better results than sterile tap water, Periogard and the experimental solution showed greater efficacy against formation of MS colonies/ biofilms on the toothbrush bristles and exhibited larger microbial growth inhibition halos.

Microbial contamination of toothbrushes and their decontamination.

Immersion in 0.12% chlorhexidine gluconate and 1% sodium hypochlorite are efficient methods for toothbrush disinfection.

It is suggested that more extensive studies are needed, taking into account additional parameters such as age and degree of toothbrush wear and the use of pre-brushing mouthwashes, to find an obvious relationship between such variables and microbial load.

The synthesis of extracellular glucan is an integral component of the sucrose-dependent colonization of tooth surfaces by species of the mutans streptococci and recent studies indicate that at least some of the glucan-binding proteins modulate virulence and some can act as protective immunogens within animal models.

Effectiveness of Antimicrobial Solutions on Streptococcus mutans in used Toothbrushes

All the antimicrobial solutions used in this study proved to be effective toothbrush decontaminants and the efficacy of 3% neem was highest in the authors' study followed by 0.2% chlorhexidine gluconate.
