OBJECTIVES This study examined the effects of extracts of two chewing sticks on proliferation of fibroblasts and viability of cariogenic bacteria. METHODS Aqueous extracts of miswak (Salvadora persica; Arak tree) and derum (Juglans regia; walnut tree) were prepared and their effects investigated on growth of Balb/C 3T3 mouse fibroblasts by measuring the mitochondrial succinic dehydrogenase activity. Furthermore, the effects on the viability of various cariogenic bacteria (Streptococcus mutans… CONTINUE READING
