Modified Composite Nanomaterials as Novel Approach to Dental Hygiene Formulation
Antibacterial assays revealed that the cetylpyridinium chloride-montmorillonite clay complex was able to eradicate oral bacteria in human saliva within 2 minutes, at a concentration of 0.05 g/L as determined by plating human saliva onto nutrient agar plates post-treatment.
Natural Products for the Prevention and Treatment of Oral Mucositis—A Review
This review aims to summarize the new potential application of different natural products in the prevention and treatment of OM in comparison to conventional ones, also providing a deep insight into the most recent clinical studies.
Colloidal Dynamics of Emulsion Droplets in Mouth
Oral Health Related Behaviors in Relation to DMFT Indexes of Teenagers in an Urban Area of North-West Poland—Dental Caries Is Still a Common Problem
There is an emerging need for the implementation of effective caries prevention and recovery programs in Poland and health promotion focusing on oral hygiene behaviors should be disseminated more widely because lower caries experience was demonstrated in teenagers declaring healthy oral habits.
Glass-ionomer dental cements as novel solid-state buffers


Formulation ingredients for toothpastes and mouthwashes.
The main components of toothpastes and mouthwashes are presented and their supposed effect as therapeutic agents is explained.
Nanoparticles as Anti-Microbial, Anti-Inflammatory, and Remineralizing Agents in Oral Care Cosmetics: A Review of the Current Situation
The potential clinical implementation of nanoparticles as anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and remineralizing agents in the prevention of dental caries, hypersensitivity, and periodontitis is described.
Pharmacokinetics in the oral cavity: fluoride and other active ingredients.
  • R. Duckworth
  • Medicine, Biology
    Monographs in oral science
  • 2013
The aim of this chapter is to review the literature on the oral pharmacokinetics of fluoride but also other active ingredients, mainly anti-plaque agents, though their oral substantivity is generally greater.
Advanced drug delivery systems for local treatment of the oral cavity.
An insight into the latest drug delivery strategies for the local treatment and prevention of the four most common oral pathologies, namely, dental caries, periodontitis, oral mucosal infections and oral cancer is provided.
Zinc in the mouth, its interactions with dental enamel and possible effects on caries; a review of the literature.
  • R. Lynch
  • Medicine
    International dental journal
  • 2011
Under certain conditions, low concentrations of zinc can enhance remineralisation of enamel lesions, by retarding lesion arrestment, and it seems unlikely that any negative effects would be countered exactly by positive effects.
Comparison of the effect of toothpastes containing enzymes or antimicrobial compounds with a conventional fluoride toothpaste on the development of plaque and gingivitis.
It was concluded that the active ingredients added to the toothpastes evaluated in this study provided little or no more additional benefit to oral hygiene and gingival health than could be achieved with a conventional fluoride toothpaste.
A Critical Review of Modern Concepts for Teeth Whitening
In-office bleaching using peroxides is effective, but side effects like tooth sensitivity or a damage of the natural organic matrix of enamel and dentin may occur.
Oral care.
A mouthwash that concomitantly moisturizes the oral mucosa is advisable for patients undergoing or having undergone radio-/chemotherapy and a handlebar with a grip cover can be helpful for manually disabled patients or for those with reduced motor skills.
Dental Biofilm and Laboratory Microbial Culture Models for Cariology Research
An overview of the dental plaque biofilm and laboratory microbial culture models used for cariology research is given and it is shown that the open models provide better regulation of the biofilm growth rate than the models in the closed system.
