Fulminant infection by uncommon organisms in animal bite wounds. (1/125)

In 1995 and 1996, 215 patients exposed to different species of animals were treated at the Amarnath Polyclinic, Balasore, in India. Among them were two children infected by uncommon organisms, i.e., Capnocytophaga canimorsus and Pasteurella multocida; the patients recovered with appropriate antibiotic therapy.  (+info)

Coenonia anatina gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel bacterium associated with respiratory disease in ducks and geese. (2/125)

Taxon 1502 was originally described as a Riemerella anatipestifer-like bacterium causing exudative septicaemia in ducks and geese. In the present study, an integrated genotypic and phenotypic approach was used to elucidate the phylogenetic affiliation and taxonomic relationships of 12 strains of taxon 1502. Whole-cell protein and fatty acid analyses and an extensive biochemical examination by using conventional tests and several API microtest systems indicated that all isolates formed a homogeneous taxon, which was confirmed by DNA-DNA hybridizations. 16S rDNA sequence analysis of a representative strain (LMG 14382T) indicated that this taxon belongs to the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides phylum and revealed a moderate but distinct relationship to species of the genus Capnocytophaga (overall 16S rDNA sequence identities were 88.8-90.2%). Taxon 1502 is concluded to represent a single species that should be allocated to a novel genus, and the name Coenonia anatina gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The DNA G + C content of representative strains was 35-36 mol% and the type strain is LMG 14382T.  (+info)

Capnocytophaga ochracea: characterization of a plasmid-encoded extended-spectrum TEM-17 beta-lactamase in the phylum Flavobacter-bacteroides. (3/125)

A plasmid-encoded extended-spectrum TEM beta-lactamase with a pI of 5.5 was detected in a Capnocytophaga ochracea clinical isolate. The bla gene was associated with a strong TEM-2 promoter and was derived from bla(TEM-1a) with a single-amino-acid substitution: Glu(104)-->Lys, previously assigned to TEM-17, which is thus the first TEM beta-lactamase to be reported in the phylum Flavobacter-Bacteroides.  (+info)

In vitro susceptibilities of Capnocytophaga isolates to beta-lactam antibiotics and beta-lactamase inhibitors. (4/125)

The susceptibilities of 43 pharyngeal isolates of Capnocytophaga to beta-lactam antibiotics, alone or in combination with beta-lactamase inhibitors, were tested by an agar dilution method. The 34 beta-lactamase-positive strains were highly resistant to beta-lactams, but the intrinsic activities of clavulanate, tazobactam, and sulbactam against Capnocytophaga, even beta-lactamase producers, indicates that these beta-lactamase inhibitors could be used for empirical treatment of neutropenic patients with oral sources of infection.  (+info)

Capnocytophaga cynodegmi cellulitis, bacteremia, and pneumonitis in a diabetic man. (5/125)

Capnocytophaga cynodegmi (formerly "DF-2 like organism"), a commensal organism of the canine oral cavity, is a capnophilic, gram-negative, facultative bacillus. C. cynodegmi has rarely been encountered in human diseases. We report the first known case of cellulitis, bacteremia, and pneumonitis caused by C. cynodegmi in a diabetic man from central India following a dog bite.  (+info)

C-telopeptide pyridinoline cross-links (ICTP) and periodontal pathogens associated with endosseous oral implants. (6/125)

Detection of periodontal or peri-implant sites exhibiting progressing disease or those at risk of deterioration has proven difficult. Pyridinoline cross-linked carboxyterminal telopeptide of type I collagen (ICTP), a marker specific for bone degradation found in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF), has been associated with both bone and attachment loss in periodontitis and may be useful for predicting disease activity. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to examine the relationship between ICTP levels and subgingival species around implants and teeth from 20 partially and 2 fully edentulous patients. GCF and plaque samples were collected from the mesiobuccal site of each implant and tooth. Radioimmunoassay techniques were utilized to determine GCF ICTP levels. Plaque samples were analyzed utilizing checkerboard DNA-DNA hybridization. Traditional clinical parameters were assessed. Seventy-one implants and 370 teeth from 22 subjects were examined. ICTP levels and subgingival plaque composition were not significantly different between implants and teeth. Implant sites colonized by Prevotella intermedia, Capnocytophaga gingivalis, Fusobacterium nucleatum ss vincentii, and Streptococcus gordonii exhibited odds ratios of 12.4, 9.3, 8.1, and 6.7, respectively of detecting ICTP. These results suggest a relationship between elevated ICTP levels at implant sites and some species associated with disease progression. Longitudinal studies are necessary to determine whether elevated ICTP levels may predict the development of peri-implant bone loss.  (+info)

Bacteremia caused by Capnocytophaga species in patients with neutropenia and cancer: results of a multicenter study. (7/125)

We investigated 28 cases of bacteremia caused by Capnocytophaga species that occurred during an 8-year period, most of which were in patients with hematologic malignancy and neutropenia. Infections were uncomplicated, without serious organ involvement and without any apparent source except ulcerations of the oropharyngeal mucosa, and only 1 isolate showed resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics; 9 of 16 isolates were resistant to ciprofloxacin.  (+info)

Lipopolysaccharides from periodontopathic bacteria Porphyromonas gingivalis and Capnocytophaga ochracea are antagonists for human toll-like receptor 4. (8/125)

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) 2 and 4 have recently been identified as possible signal transducers for various bacterial ligands. To investigate the roles of TLRs in the recognition of periodontopathic bacteria by the innate immune system, a Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB)-dependent reporter cell line, 7.7, which is defective in both TLR2- and TLR4-dependent signaling pathways was transfected with human CD14 and TLRs. When the transfectants were exposed to freeze-dried periodontopathic bacteria, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Capnocytophaga ochracea, and Fusobacterium nucleatum, and a non-oral bacterium, Escherichia coli, all species of the bacteria induced NF-kappaB-dependent CD25 expression in 7.7/huTLR2 cells. Although freeze-dried A. actinomycetemcomitans, F. nucleatum, and E. coli also induced CD25 expression in 7.7/huTLR4 cells, freeze-dried P. gingivalis did not. Similarly, lipopolysaccharides (LPS) extracted from A. actinomycetemcomitans, F. nucleatum, and E. coli induced CD25 expression in 7.7/huTLR4 cells, but LPS from P. gingivalis and C. ochracea did not. Furthermore, LPS from P. gingivalis and C. ochracea attenuated CD25 expression in 7.7/huTLR4 cells induced by repurified LPS from E. coli. LPS from P. gingivalis and C. ochracea also inhibited the secretion of interleukin-6 (IL-6) from U373 cells, the secretion of IL-1beta from human peripheral blood mononuclear cells, and ICAM-1 expression in human gingival fibroblasts induced by repurified LPS from E. coli. These findings indicated that LPS from P. gingivalis and C. ochracea worked as antagonists for human TLR4. The antagonistic activity of LPS from these periodontopathic bacteria may be associated with the etiology of periodontal diseases.  (+info)

Capnocytophaga canimorsus is a fastidious, slow-growing Gram-negative rod of the genus Capnocytophaga. It is a commensal bacterium in the normal gingival flora of canine and feline species. Transmission may occur through bites, licks,or even close proximity with animals. C. canimorsus generally has low virulence in healthy individuals, but has been observed to cause severe illness in persons with pre-existing conditions. The pathogenesis of C. canimorsus is still largely unknown, but increased clinical diagnoses have fostered an interest in the bacillus. Treatment with antibiotics is effective in most cases, but the most important yet basic diagnostic tool available to clinicians remains the knowledge of recent exposure to canines or felines. Very little is known about the pathogenesis of this zoonotic pathogen. Capnocytophaga canimorsus was first observed in 1976 by Bobo and Newton. The pair isolated a previously unknown Gram-negative bacteria from a patient presenting with meningitis in ...
To Whom It May Concern Lick of death: Capnocytophaga canimorsus is an important cause of sepsis in the elderly1 describes an excellent outcome thanks to an elegant diagnostic work up and excellent treatment. However, I believe the headline Lick of death is unnecessarily fear-mongering and unwarranted (the patient, after all, did not die). Additionally, while the authors should be congratulated for educating practitioners about C. canimorsus, I feel there is scope for discussion with veterinarians to reduce further risk to this and other patients. The authors conclude that the source of the patients infection was the owners own dog, via a lick, on the grounds that Capnocytophaga canimorsus was isolated from that patient, that it is a zoonotic organism and that the patient admitted to being licked by the dog. My understanding is that this conclusion is based on findings that C canimorsus colonises the mouths of dogs and cats. This seems reasonable though for the sake of completeness and ...
Capnocytophaga is a genus of Gram-negative bacteria. Normally found in the oropharyngeal tract of mammals, they are involved in the pathogenesis of some animal bite wounds as well as periodontal diseases. Capnocytophaga canimorsus transmission following a dog bite can cause overwhelming sepsis in asplenic patients, the elderly, and the immunocompromised. Empiric treatment for these bacteria following a dog bite, consisting of a third-generation cephalosporin early in the infection, should be instituted in these patient populations, or following deep bites or dog bites to the hand.[citation needed] The term Capnocytophaga comes from Capno for its dependence on CO2 and cytophaga for its flexibility and mobility shift ( gliding motility ). It belongs to the family of Flavobacteriaceae, order of Flavobacteriales, class of Flavobacteria, phylum Bacteroidetes and domain Bacteria. This gender includes 8 different species: Capnocytophaga ochracea, Capnocytophaga gingivalis, Capnocytophaga ...

Capnocytophaga canimorsus infection is the most severe and rapidly progressive bacterial infection transmitted by dog bite and fortunately is very rare. The authors describe a 68-year-old gentleman who presented in an acute confusional state 2 days after having been bitten on the left hand by a dog. Despite immediate broad-spectrum intravenous antibiotics, he developed significant sequelae including disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, microvascular emboli leading to peripheral necrosis, widespread local tissue destruction and septic arthritis.. Our case illustrates a life-threatening presentation of infection with C canimorsus, which is known as the dog bite organism. Early diagnosis and aggressive treatment is key to survival. ...
Capnocytophaga spp. can be resistant to third-generation cephalosporins, but remain susceptible to imipenem, cefoxitin, and amoxicillin combined with clavulanic acid.[9] Although resistant strains are most frequently isolated in oral cavities, their prevalence is worrying, (Jolivet-Gougeon et al., 2008; Sixou et al., 2006). The CfxA broad spectrum beta- lactamases (CfxA, CfxA2 and CfxA3) belong to the group 2e of Bush classification. This class includes beta-lactamase enzymes with significant activity against cephalosporins and monobactams, rather than penicillins. Following the characterization of CfxA beta- lactamase in B. vulgatus and CfxA2 beta-lactamase in P. intermedia (nucleotide Genbank under accession number AF118110), a new group 2e of Bush classification named CfxA3 (nucleotide GenBank under accession number AF472622) has been characterized in C. ochracea E201 (Jolivet-Gougeon et al. 2004). The cfxA3 gene has 99% identity with cfxA of B. vulgatus and cfxA2 of P. intermedia. The ...

N2 - The authors call the attention to three pathogenic agents occurring in Hungary and capable of causing zoonotic infections, that might result in severe, potententially lethal infections in asplenic human patients. Two of these pathogens belong to the Babesia genus. Babesia divergens is a bovine pathogen, while Babesia microti infects mainly rodents. Both Babesia species cause human infection by tickbite. Babesias cause haemolysis and secondary hepatic, as well as renal dysfunction in humans. Capnocytophaga canimorsus occurs normaly in the oral cavity of dogs and cats. Humans usually become infected from the pets by biting. This bacterium species can cause septicaemia, following local wound infection, as well as endocarditis and meningitis. Both babesiosis, as well as C. canimorsus infection are curable by using appropriate antibiotic treatment, but ...

To the Editor: We do not agree with the diagnosis of myocardial infarction in the case of a 36-year-old man 2 days after a dog bite1 . For several reasons, we believe that the patient had myopericarditis rather than myocardial infarction.. First, the patient had symptoms, signs, and laboratory findings consistent with sepsis, and blood cultures yielded Capnocytophaga canimorsus. Myocardial infarction occurs occasionally in patients with bacteremia, and it usually results from sepsis-associated hypotension or from endocarditis with septic embolism to the coronary arteries. However, viral and bacterial infections are more commonly the cause of pericarditis and myocarditis.2 3 ECG patterns of acute myopericarditis are known to resemble those seen with acute myocardial infarction.4 The presented ECG demonstrated ST elevations in both anterior and inferior leads in a manner consistent with the pattern found in acute myopericarditis.4 5 Second, the absence of regional wall motion abnormalities and the ...
The asplenic state is a health risk increasingly being recognised by health professionals all over the world. Infection in patients with an absent or dysfunctional spleen remains largely preventable. Many measures have been proposed to reduce the risk of sepsis after splenectomy, which include chemoprophylaxis, immunoprophylaxis, and patient/clinician education.6. Other than the known susceptibility of splenectomised individuals to encapsulated bacteria (Streptococcus pneumoniae, N meningitides, and H influenziae),7 there is evidence to suggest that other organisms, such as Gram negative bacteria and Capnocytophaga canimorsus,2 in addition to intraerythrocytic parasites, such as babesia and plasmodium, can cause infections and carry considerable morbidity.8. The pneumococcal vaccine, first introduced in the 1970s, presently includes 23 serotypes responsible for approximately 88% of pneumococcal infections. However, the most virulent pneumococcal serotypes tend to be the least immunogenic, and ...

(HealthDay) -- More than half of the 4.7 million people bitten by dogs in the United States annually are children under the age of 14.
Periodontal disease is one of the most common health problem affecting dogs. The disease is more prevalent in small breeds and brachycephalic breeds compared to large breeds, and incidence increases with advancing age. In first stage it affects only the gingival tissue and causes gingivitis. It later develops into periodontitis which involves changes in other periodontium tissues. Main etiological agents of periodontal disease are pathogenic bacteria of dental biofilm, and products of their metabolism. In human, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Treponema denticola and Tannerella forsythia play a key role in the etiology of periodontal disease. Also, there are many other candidates as human periodontal pathogens, including Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Prevotella intermedia, Prevotella nigrescens, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Parvimonas micra, Eikenella corrodens, Capnocytophaga gingivalis, Eubacterium nodatum and Campylobacter rectus. Since periodontal diseases in dogs are similar to human diseases in

From the American Veterinary Medical Association. In conjunction with the recent observance of national Dog Bite Prevention Week, the American Veterinary Medical Association is urging action to help prevent dog bites. The association has developed a community-based program it says can reduce the incidence of bites. The program is outlined in an 18-page brochure which can be downloaded from the AVMA Web site. Last year, 4.7 million people were bitten by dogs. The U.S. Postal Service -- another sponsor of Dog Bite Prevention Week -- cites data from the Humane Society of the United States reporting that that small children, the elderly and Postal Service letter carriers -- in that order -- are the most frequent victims of dog bites. Recent statistics show the annual number of dog attacks exceeds the reported instances of measles, whooping cough, and mumps, combined. In addition, dog bite victims account for up to five percent of emergency room visits. When you consider the fact that there are 61 ...
The Law Offices of Baron J. Drexel represents individuals who have been injured by dog bites or animal attacks in Oakland and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Dog bites and animal attacks are traumatizing events with lasting physical and psychological damage. While an attack by an animal can result in serious and permanent injuries or even death, the impact of such an attack on a child can be devastating. Small children are especially vulnerable to animal attacks due to their size and their limited capacity to appreciate the risk involved when around an animal. Regardless of the age or sophistication of the victim, the animals owner owes a strict duty to prevent the animal from injuring others.. Dog bites frequently occur when an owner has failed to secure the dog in a fenced yard or otherwise allows the dog to walk or roam while unleashed. Dog bites also commonly occur when the owner walks the dog on a harness or on a retractable leash which offers little control over a larger animal, ...

Dental health is as important in dogs as in people. Good dental hygiene shows up in your pets breath as well as its teeth. Dog owners are surprisingly reluctant to look into their dogs mouths, comments Joyce. However, doing so is important, as dental disease is common -- especially in small dogs, which tend to have longer life spans.. Teeth are a potential source of pain and infection, notes Joyce. She suggests monitoring your dogs breath and the amount of tartar on its teeth. When either takes a turn for the worse, it may be time for a cleaning to prevent more serious problems down the road.. No matter what body part youre talking about, start off knowing whats normal for your pet, sums up Joyce. Changes in any of the above might be indicative of a problem, at which point its time to check with your dogs veterinarian ...
ALLERGIES: Dogs can develop allergies just the way people do. They are the immune systems response to irritants either in the air or through the diet. It is recommended that dog owners with allergic dogs refrain from smoking in the home- dogs are much more sensitive to the smoke. Air purifiers also help remove dust mites and improve air quality.. Bathing your pet helps remove allergens that he may pick up on his coat or his feet. Paws can easily attract pollen, ragweed and mold, which many dogs remove through licking.. It is also a good idea to look at your pets diet. Many dogs are just as sensitive to gluten and dairy as people are, and grains, in most cases, are not good for them. Typically, once the digestive system settles down, other immune responses do as well.. TEETH AND GUMS: It is something most of us dont want to think about…what has been in our dogs mouth! The teeth and gums of dogs take a lot of abuse, and it is very hard to keep them clean. Some breeds in particular are more ...

I am wondering if any of you who have dealt with this disease have any ideas on problems we are still having with my daughters dog. He started out a few weeks back having what looked like a scrape on his leg. My daughter took him right back to emergency vet, she is still seeing same person there because she has lots of experience in immune disease. They thought it was an infection because of all the meds, mostly the preds and they have been trying to cut back on those a little faster than normal. He then developed all lumps in his mouth, mostly under his tongue. They did surgery and said they are calcium deposits, which they have never seen in a dogs mouth and no clue why he had them. While they are still cutting back on preds, his leg looks worse and now has another leg with issues. They did surgery today again to take scrapings from his back and legs, they said although he is not dehydrated at all, his skin has no elasticity at all. All the scrapings they took today are now being sent out ...

At any rate, he loves to see guests come to the door, but I only allow people around him that I trust will follow my directions and give him the time and space he needs to be comfy with them.

An individual's host response plays an important role in the pathogenesis of periodontal disease. Even in a mouth where the gingiva appear healthy there is constant low level inflammatory response facilitated by the host to manage the constant bacterial load of plaque micro-organisms. Leukocytes and Neutrophils are the main cells that phagocytose bacteria found in the gingival crevice or pocket. They migrate from the tissues in a specialised exudate called gingival crevicular fluid also known as GCF. Neutrophils are recruited to the gingival crevice area as they are signalled to by molecules released by plaque microorganisms. Damage to epithelial cells releases cytokines which attract leukocytes to assist with the inflammatory response. The balance between normal cell responses and the beginning of gingival disease is when there is too much plaque bacteria for the neutrophils to phagocytose and they degranulate releasing toxic enzymes that cause tissue damage. This appears in the mouth as red, ...

The cells of cementum are the entrapped cementoblasts, the cementocytes. Each cementocyte lies in its lacuna, similar to the pattern noted in bone. These lacunae also have canaliculi or canals. Unlike those in bone, however, these canals in cementum do not contain nerves, nor do they radiate outward. Instead, the canals are oriented toward the periodontal ligament and contain cementocytic processes that exist to diffuse nutrients from the ligament because it is vascularized. After the apposition of cementum in layers, the cementoblasts that do not become entrapped in cementum line up along the cemental surface along the length of the outer covering of the periodontal ligament. These cementoblasts can form subsequent layers of cementum if the tooth is injured. Sharpey fibers are part of the principal collagenous fibers of the periodontal ligament embedded in the cementum and alveolar bone to attach the tooth to the alveolus.[2] ...

Regular tooth cleaning by a dental professional is recommended[by whom?] to remove tartar (mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas of the mouth that are difficult to clean. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing, as well as debridement if too much tartar has accumulated. This involves the use of various instruments and/or devices to loosen and remove tartar from the teeth. Most dental hygienists recommend having the teeth professionally cleaned at least every six months.[citation needed]. More frequent cleaning and examination may be necessary during the treatment of many different dental/oral disorders or due to recent surgical procedures such as dental implants. Routine examination of the teeth by a dental professional is recommended at least every year.[citation needed] This may include yearly, select dental X-rays. See also dental plaque identification procedure and removal.. ...
The focus of treatment is to remove plaque. Therapy is aimed at the reduction of oral bacteria and may take the form of regular periodic visits to a dental professional together with adequate oral hygiene home care. Thus, several of the methods used in the prevention of gingivitis can also be used for the treatment of manifest gingivitis, such as scaling, root planing, curettage, mouth washes containing chlorhexidine or hydrogen peroxide, and flossing. Interdental brushes also help remove any causative agents. Powered toothbrushes work better than manual toothbrushes in reducing the disease.[15] The active ingredients that "reduce plaque and demonstrate effective reduction of gingival inflammation over a period of time" are triclosan, chlorhexidine digluconate, and a combination of thymol, menthol, eucalyptol, and methyl salicylate. These ingredients are found in toothpaste and mouthwash. Hydrogen peroxide was long considered a suitable over-the-counter agent to treat gingivitis. There has been ...

Before the invention of the toothbrush, a variety of oral hygiene measures had been used.[3] This has been verified by excavations in which chew sticks, tree twigs, bird feathers, animal bones and porcupine quills were recovered. The predecessor of the toothbrush is the chew stick. Chew sticks were twigs with frayed ends used to brush the teeth[4] while the other end was used as a toothpick.[5] The earliest chew sticks were discovered in Sumer Mesopotamia in 3500 BC,[5] an Egyptian tomb dating from 3000 BC,[4] and mentioned in Chinese records dating from 1600 BC. The Greeks and Romans used toothpicks to clean their teeth, and toothpick-like twigs have been excavated in Qin Dynasty tombs.[5] Chew sticks remain common in Africa,[6] the rural Southern United States,[4] and in the Islamic world the use of chewing stick Miswak is considered a pious action and has been prescribed to be used before every prayer five times a day.[7] Miswaks have been used by Muslims since 7th century. The first bristle ...
There are three hard tissues that comprise human teeth: enamel, dentin and cementum. The majority of the tooth structure is formed from dentin, and the enamel serves as the superficial layer of the crown while the cementum serves to cover the root. In the mid-1990s, however, it was discovered that a very thin layer of enamel actually exists between the dentin and cementum on the roots of adult human teeth. This led researchers to conclude that enamel matrix proteins (or EMPs) laid down by Hertwig's epithelial root sheath serve as precursors to acellular cementum during its formation, known as cementogenesis.[1] The presence of acellular cementum acts to signal the development of periodontal ligament fibers, followed by new alveolar bone, thus leading to the formation of the tissues of the periodontium.[2]. ...
The PDL substance has been estimated to be 70% water, which is thought to have a significant effect on the tooth's ability to withstand stress loads. The completeness and vitality of the PDL are essential for the functioning of the tooth. The PDL ranges in width from 0.15 to 0.38mm with its thinnest part located in the middle third of the root.[5] The width progressively decreases with age. The PDL is a part of the periodontium that provides for the attachment of the teeth to the surrounding alveolar bone by way of the cementum. The PDL appears as the periodontal space of 0.4 to 1.5 mm on radiographs, a radiolucent area between the radiopaque lamina dura of the alveolar bone proper and the radiopaque cementum. ...
Once all these characteristics are understood, the clinician will activate the periodontal debridement strokes using the periodontal scalers.. When performing periodontal debridement, the instrumentation of anterior teeth and posterior teeth are applied with the following steps. First, the fulcrum finger rests on a tooth to support the clinician's hand, then at the initiation of a stroke, the clinician will press down on the fulcrum finger to further gain control.[4] It is crucial to tilt the lower shank of the periodontal scaler slightly towards the tooth surface being worked on to obtain correct angulation.[4] This ensures that a 70º-80º angulation is achieved between the tooth surface and the face of the instrument.[4] The instrument is then walked across the surface being worked on with short, controlled, overlapping strokes while applying moderate pressure.[4] Overall, the working-end of the instrument is only moving a few millimeters at a time.[4] Simultaneously, the clinician must roll ...
It is widely acknowledged in dental literature that orthodontic appliances, such as brackets, wires, and bands, as an outcome of their greater surface area, can harbour greater accumulations of plaque with more virulent changes in bacterial composition, which can ultimately cause a reduction in periodontal health as indicated by increased gingival recession, bleeding on probing, and plaque retention measurements.[22] Furthermore, fixed appliances makes plaque control more challenging and restricts the natural cleaning action of the tongue, lips, and cheek to remove food and bacterial debris from tooth surfaces, and also creates new plaque stagnation areas that stimulate the colonisation of pathogenic bacteria.[23] It is the general consensus among dental academia that patients undergoing orthodontic treatment maintain a high level of plaque control through not only conscientious toothbrushing, but also proximal surface cleaning via interdental aids, with dental floss being the most recommended ...
