Earlier studies in our laboratories demonstrated that particles of a number of snack foods that are retained on the dentition accumulate fermentable sugars and short-chain carboxylic acids (SCCA; acetic, formic, lactic, and propionic) to different degrees. The present study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that the accumulated SCCA can induce a gingival inflammatory response. Five periodontally and medically healthy subjects were given portions of plain doughnuts (high SCCA levels) or… 

Figures from this paper

Evidence for the early onset of gingival inflammation following short-term plaque accumulation.
TLDR
It is indicated that IL-1b release rates increase in the GCF after 3 days of plaque accumulation, before any clinical signs of inflammation appear.
Cigarette smoke reduces short chain fatty acid production by a Porphyromonas gingivalis clinical isolate
TLDR
There is high disparity in the SCFA profiles of variant chronic periodontitis‐associated bacteria, while CSE exposure reduces SCFA production by a specific clinical strain of P gingivalis, which may help explain the reduced vascular response to dental plaque in tobacco smokers.

TLDR
The central hypothesis is that short-chain carboxylic acids can alter both cell function and gene expression, and thus contribute to the initiation and prolongation of gingival inflammation.
Short-chain carboxylic acids produced by gram-negative anaerobic bacteria can accelerate or delay polymorphonuclear leukocyte apoptosis in vitro.
TLDR
Low concentrations of butyric or propionic acids delay PMN apoptosis and extend their functional lifespan, while higher concentrations accelerate apoptosis through a mechanism that appears to involve caspase-3.
Microbiological and host factors are involved in promoting the periodontal failure of metaloceramic crowns
TLDR
Data confirm that the application of metaloceramic crowns is a factor of risk for the development of gingival/periodontal inflammation, and these factors could be used to set up rapid tests to early predict the onset of periodontal disease at reconstructed sites.
A double-edged sword: Role of butyrate in the oral cavity and the gut.
TLDR
This review focused on the production and biological impact of butyrate in both intestine and oral cavity and explained the possible pathway of various diseases that were engaged bybutyrate.

TLDR
Gingivitis severity was not associated with tooth-brushing but significantly increased with smoking when sugary drinks were used, indicating the effect of unhealthy lifestyle on gingival health, and the need to promote healthy lifestyle habits in this age group.
Macronutrient-induced modulation of periodontitis in rodents-a systematic review.
TLDR
There is little information on how dietary nutrients affect periodontitis in animal models, and there is inconsistency in data due to differences in methodology, outcome measurement, and dietary formulation.
Structure and function of the tooth-epithelial interface in health and disease.
TLDR
Three types of mucous membranes (masticatory, lining, and specialized) line the oral cavity and form the structural boundary between the body and the external environment and reflect their effectiveness as a barrier to the penetration of microbes and noxious agents into the deeper tissues.
The Role of Lactic Acid on Wound Healing, Cell Growth, Cell Cycle Kinetics, and Gene Expression of Cultured Junctional Epithelium Cells in the Pathophysiology of Periodontal Disease
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that stimulation of junctional epithelial cells with high concentrations of LA could exacerbate PD, similarly to butyric acid and propionic acid.

Initial gingivitis induced by topical application of plaque extract. A histometric study in dogs with normal gingivae.
TLDR
Observations of this study indicate that soluble substances from human dental plaque when applied topically in the gingival sulcus may give rise to structural alterations similar to those developing in theGingival tissues in response to plaque accumulation.
Gas-liquid chromatography of the gingival fluid as an aid in periodontal diagnosis.
TLDR
It can be concluded that GLC measures the overall metabolic activity of the bacterial population colonizing the subgingival area, while the rate of gingival fluid flow reflects the degree of the inflammatory response of the host.
Volatile Fatty Acids, Metabolic By-products of Periodontopathic Bacteria, Inhibit Lymphocyte Proliferation and Cytokine Production
TLDR
The results suggest that the volatile fatty acids produced by periodontopathic bacteria, easily penetrating the oral mucosa, severely harm periodontal tissue, including immunoregulatory cells.
Age and diet composition in relation to experimental periodontal destruction in hamsters.
TLDR
It is concluded that in hamsters on a 16% sucrose diet the growth ofAlveolar bone is diminished, or even the destruction of alveolarBone is induced, and this process in hamster is age related and might be analogous to that in man.
Lack of Correlation Between Food Retention on the Human Dentition and Consumer Perception of Food Stickiness
TLDR
Comparisons were made among consumer ratings of stickiness of 21 commercially available foods and objective measurements of tooth retention of each of the foods, showing that consumers cannot accurately assess the retentiveness of foods and advice simply to avoid sticky ones is inadequate.
Short chain fatty acids produced by anaerobic bacteria inhibit adhesion and proliferation of periodontal ligament fibroblasts.
TLDR
Results indicate that SCFA present in theperiodontal pockets could interfere with periodontal wound healing and repair in patients affected by periodontAL infections.
Temperature as a periodontal diagnostic.
TLDR
The results suggest that site temperature is a diagnostic of inflammatory activity associated with periodontal disease, and the specifically designed instrument detected significant disease-related departures from normality.
Neutrophil-mediated damage to human gingival epithelial cells.
TLDR
It is indicated that activated PMNs cause nonlytic detachment injury to gingival epithelial cells which may be mediated by digestion of their extracellular matrix by granule neutral proteases.
Superoxide formation and chemiluminescence of peripheral polymorphonuclear leukocytes in rapidly progressive periodontitis patients.
TLDR
The results suggest that PMN cells from RPP patients are functionally activated, and produce elevated levels of oxygen radicals, which may play a role in the pathogenesis of RPP.
