  • Pathogens
  • Our study shows that a strong relationship exists between oral and respiratory pathogens in patients with ventilator-associated pneumonia," said Paul Heo, D.D.S., a doctoral student in the UB dental schoolâ s Department of Oral Biology and first author on the study. (rxpgnews.com)
  • Samples from nine patients who were found to have the pathogens of interest in their plaque and were suspected of having pneumonia were selected for analysis. (rxpgnews.com)
  • Protein and DNA profiles of pathogens in plaque and in bronchial alveolar lavage samples were identified using a process called pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. (rxpgnews.com)
  • Using molecular genotyping, investigators matched respiratory pathogens from the lungs of eight patients who developed hospital-acquired pneumonia with pathogens collected from their dental plaque when they were admitted to the hospital. (buffalo.edu)
  • Of the 49 patients, 28 had respiratory pathogens in their dental plaque samples and 21 did not. (buffalo.edu)
  • Results showed that of 13 pathogens isolated from lung fluid, nine were a genetic match to those recovered from the plaque of the corresponding patient. (buffalo.edu)
  • These findings indicate that dental plaque is a reservoir of respiratory pathogens that can cause pneumonia in hospitalized institutionalized elders," said El-Solh. (buffalo.edu)
  • Streptococcus
  • 1988. Physical and biochemical studies of Streptococcus mutans sediments suggest new factors linking the cariogenicity of plaque with its extracellular polysaccharide content. (springer.com)
  • S2-1 Properties of sialic acid-binding adhesin of Streptococcus gordonii, an oral bacterium as a member of dental plaque organisms and etiological agent for infective endocarditis. (zanran.com)
  • antibacterial
  • The objective of this in vitro study was to assess the antibacterial effect of different concentrations of garlic extract against human dental plaque microbiota. (nih.gov)
  • samples
  • 1983. Effect of packing density and polysaccharide to protein ratio of plaque samples cultured in vitro upon their permeability. (springer.com)
  • We used plaque samples from caries-active subjects to reconstruct these highly pathogenic biofilms on real human tooth enamel," says Koo. (eurekalert.org)
  • Correlation between the counts of S. mutans by TT and TR from dental plaque samples from restorations. (zanran.com)
  • Of the 49 patients, 28 had germs known to cause respiratory disease in their dental plaque samples. (mcknights.com)
  • oral
  • In an era of increased knowledge about oral hygiene, the effect of dental plaque is still seen in our society. (myhealth.gov.my)
  • Removing plaque is important for oral health. (howstuffworks.com)
  • It displays an intriguing enzyme-like property whereby the catalytic activity is dramatically enhanced at acidic pH but is 'switched off' at neutral pH conditions," says Koo, professor in Penn Dental Medicine's Department of Orthodontics and in the divisions of Pediatric Dentistry and Community Oral Health. (eurekalert.org)
  • The presentation is part of a three-year longitudinal, double-blind study funded by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research and headed by Frank A. Scannapieco, D.D.S., Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Oral Biology. (rxpgnews.com)
  • Plaque can be removed at planned intervals by the dental hygienist or a dentist as part of an oral prophylaxis . (intelligentdental.com)
  • The oral hygiene standard was evaluated by means of a standard plaque index. (arctichealth.org)
  • Objectives To study whether the amount of dental plaque, which indicates poor oral hygiene and is potential source of oral infections, associates with premature death from cancer. (bmj.com)
  • Conclusions This study hypothesis was confirmed by showing that poor oral hygiene, as reflected in the amount of dental plaque, was associated with increased cancer mortality. (bmj.com)
  • In the meantime, nursing homes and other institutions housing frail elderly should be involved actively in improving daily oral hygiene of their residents and enhancing access to dental care," he said. (buffalo.edu)
  • mouth
  • A better understanding of how plaque builds up in the mouth may help in developing improved ways of controlling it. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • At the first visit, participants will have a dental examination, and a mold will be made of the mouth. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • To assess dental plaque, all subjects utilized a fluorescein mouth rinse, and intraoral photographs were taken under black light imaging. (eurekalert.org)
  • Plaque is a sticky substance made from leftover food particles and salvia that mix in your mouth. (humana.com)
  • Plaque forms as a result of chemical reactions that take place in your mouth. (humana.com)
  • Therefore it is essential to know the sites in the mouth where tooth plaque tends to accumulate. (intelligentdental.com)
  • respiratory
  • This is the first time research has been able to find a link between dental hygiene and respiratory infection, according to lead researcher Dr. Ali El-Solh of the University at Buffalo in New York. (mcknights.com)
  • This is the first study to establish unequivocally a link between dental hygiene and respiratory infection," said Ali A. El-Solh, M.D., M.P.H., associate professor of medicine in the UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and first author on the study. (buffalo.edu)
  • We need to investigate the relationship between the burden of dental disease and the incidence of respiratory events. (buffalo.edu)
  • findings
  • Joseph S. Alpert, M.D., an internationally renowned cardiologist, noted the importance and timeliness of these findings and commented on how his father, a dentist, had told him even before he went to medical school, that dental health may affect heart attacks and strokes. (eurekalert.org)
