There is almost universal agreement that caries is a disease of westernized conditions,1 although many of the data are uncritical or were collected inexpertly by archeologists and anthropologists. Although it is reasonable to assume that the chemical changes of the diet explain this effect of westernization, other aspects of feeding, such as, the timing of meals or the toughness of food or even nondietary differences, are difficult to exclude completely. There is no reason to believe that the… 
The cariogenic potential of several snack foods.
TLDR
The results of these experiments indicated the equal importance of all food-related parameters on dental caries formation, all of which are equally important in the progress of this disease.

A survey of the relationship between caries prevalence and the consumption of sugar and other foods by man has been interpreted to show that snack foods share importance with sucrose in caries
Predisposition to Caries in Hamsters Following the Erosive Effect of a Commercial Citrus Beverage Administered With and Without Supplemental Fluoride
TLDR
Results suggest that enamel erosion is a predisposing factor in hamster molars and the addition of physiological fluoride protects the enamel from erosion and caries.
Dietary pattern of Finnish children with low high caries experience.
TLDR
The correlations between dietary patterns and caries were studied in a series of Finnish rural children from low-fluoride areas and showed that the relative proportion of sugar and sugar-containing products was somewhat greater in the diets of the high-caries children than in the diet of the low- caries children, but not as high as could be expected.
The effect of cheese on dental caries: a review of the literature.
The relationship between nutrition and dental health has been a topic of interest for many years. Recently, the cariostatic properties of cheese have been the subject of intensive research. Most of
Health Effects of Non-Centrifugal Sugar (NCS): A Review
TLDR
Non-centrifugal sugar has multiple health effects, the highest frequency is immunological effects, followed by anti-toxicity and cytoprotective effects, anticariogenic effects and diabetes and hypertension effects.
Basic Biological Sciences The Effects of Fatty Acids and Their Monoesters on the Metabolic Activity of Dental Plaque
  • M. L. Hayes
  • Chemistry, Medicine
    Journal of dental research
  • 1984
TLDR
The glycolipid (sucrose monolaurate) reduced plaque bacterial glycolysis and sucrose oxidation in a non-competitive manner but stimulated sucrose incorporation at low sucrose concentrations.
Dental erosion resulting from chewable vitamin C tablets.
  • J. Giunta
  • Medicine
    Journal of the American Dental Association
  • 1983
TLDR
Tests were done to demonstrate the acidity of vitamin C tablets and the demineralization of enamel by a solution made with a tablet and the causes for dental erosion and the varying patterns of erosion are reviewed.
Plaque Removal Efficacy of Chewing Apples and Tooth-Brushing: A Comparative Cross Over Clinical Study
Background: The best and the most reliable methods to manage the dental plaque are still mechanical procedures. It has been traditionally recommended that a firm fruit such as an apple be eaten to
Influence of sugar content in soft bread on pH of human dental plaque.
Quantitative determination of monosaccharides, disaccharides and sorbitol by use of gas-liquid chromatography (GLC) was performed on thirty-three samples of different commercial soft bread. Maltose

The Relation Between Diet and Caries in the South African Bantu
TLDR
The object of this and the previous work is to discover why civilization brings decay to the Bantu teeth.
The Effect of Oat Hulls on the Dental Caries Experience in Rats
TLDR
The effect of adding oat hulls to the diet was investigated at two different dietary levels since previous experience had shown that certain substances may increase the caries experience, or have less of an anticariogenic effect, instead of reducing the carie rate, when the dietary content is increased.
Effects of Ashed Foodstuffs on Dental Decay in Hamsters
THIS investigation into the effect of inorganic constituents of a natural diet on tooth integrity was prompted by previous regional differences noted in dental caries prevalence in human beings' and

In another paper (1) which deals with the correlation between the diet and dental caries in the South African Bantu the proposition is advanced that refined sugar and/or refined flour cause dental
Nutrition and dental caries.
TLDR
Regardless of the developmental history of any tooth, micro-organisms and their metabolic products are required for the destruction of tooth substance with the resultant initiation and progression of carious lesions in their clinical form.
The Relationship between Acid Production and Enamel Decalcification in Salivary Fermentations of Carbohydrate Foodstuffs
  • R. Andlaw

    Journal of dental research
  • 1960
TLDR
The primary purpose of the present study was to demonstrate whether there exists a direct relationship between the amount of acid produced by salivary fermentation of carbohydrate foods and the amountof accompanying enamel decalcification.
Relation of Function to Caries Rate
TLDR
The present study was conducted at Children's Village, Dobbs Ferry, New York, and selected sugar cane, certain varieties of which have considerable taste appeal to youth and at the same time offer a maximum of hard bulk which, during mastication, does not lose its fibrous structure.

Inhibition of experimental caries by oat hullss
TLDR
It seems little doubt that the oat hulls were responsible for a significant inhibition of caries, indicated particularly by the reduction in caries severity scores, and in agreement with previous studies, reduced the occlusal caries produced by diet 585.
