  • In this witty, easy-to-read story, children learn what bacteria is, how it causes tooth decay, and how they can fight against it. (
  • Told from the point of view of the bacteria, the fact-filled, rhyming text shows dentists, in a non-threatening way, as they help youngsters guard against tooth decay. (
  • These drugs can cause (1) dry mouth from less saliva secretion and (2) acid mouth that causes teeth to become soft and bacteria to multiply. (
  • When we consume sugar, the bacteria in our mouths digest the sugar and produce acid, which weakens tooth enamel (demineralization). (
  • Whether it's in your gut or on your teeth, bacteria survive and thrive in a structure that they create around. (
  • Dentists use silver diamine fluoride, made of silver fluoride and ammonia, to stop tooth decay and protect against new bacteria. (
  • Sealants are plastic coatings applied to the pits and fissures in tooth surfaces to prevent decay-causing bacteria and food particles from collecting in these hard-to-clean surfaces. (
  • How much bacteria does brushing your teeth remove from your mouth? (
  • Subject: How much bacteria does brushing your teeth remove from your mouth? (
  • Does brushing you teeth really remove much bacteria? (
  • the longer the bacteria remains inside of your mouth, the more susceptible your teeth will become to staining and yellowing. (
  • There is a zinc oxide - calcium oxide composition called Biocalex, which they claim is superior to zinc oxide since it is said to fill the tooth tubules and displace anaerobic bacteria, and thus make it also superior to gutta percha. (
  • Another possibility for a dead tooth suspected of harboring live bacteria would be to drill a tiny hole through the cavity filling and inject a droplet of several potent bacteria poisons and then sealing the hole. (
  • It is majorly caused due to poor dental hygiene or a tooth injury, allowing bacteria to infiltrate deep inside. (
  • Anodontia Dental caries-Dental caries are known as cavities or tooth decay Bacteria in the mouth use foods that contain sugar or starch to produce acids which eat away at the tooth's structure causing destruction to the enamel of the teeth. (
  • Therefore, this study evaluated marginal bone levels (MBLs) and soft tissue around single implants with scalloped necks in the esthetic zone prospectively over a 3-year period. (
  • Periodontal disease is caused by bacterial plaque that accumulates underneath gingival tissues and becomes infected, initiating bone loss around the teeth. (
  • The circumstances of the evolution of hypsodonty (= high-crowned teeth) are a bone of contention. (
  • Teeth and some bone meet this criterion. (
  • The bioinspired gel material could one day help repair or replace damaged organs, such as teeth and bone, and possibly other organs as well, scientists from the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and Boston Children's Hospital report recently in Advanced Materials .

  • Abstract Objective The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the long-term effects of orthodontic traction on root length and alveolar bone level in impacted canines and adjacent teeth . (
  • Root length and alveolar bone level (buccal and palatal) were evaluated on cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images. (
  • Results There were no statistically significant differences in root length and buccal and palatal bone levels of canines and adjacent teeth among groups. (
  • Conclusions Impacted canine treatment by closed-eruption technique associated with canine crown perforation, has a minimal effect on root length and buccal and palatal alveolar bone level in both canine and adjacent teeth , demonstrating that this treatment protocol has a good long-term prognosis . (
  • What does doctor Dowling think of bone grafts and tooth implants in general? (
  • In simple terms, teeth are pulled by the osteoclasts that break down bone on one side, and pushed in the same direction by the osteoblasts, the bone building cells, on the other. (
  • This meant that something had occurred in the bone cells to prevent the teeth from moving. (
  • These teeth enabled early humans to eat rough and hard food easily, however with time and evolution, and the diet getting softer, the jaw bone size reduced. (
  • Impacted wisdom teeth are classified by their direction of impaction, their depth compared to the biting surface of adjacent teeth and the amount of the tooth's crown that extends through gum tissue or bone. (
  • The prognosis for the second molar is good following the wisdom teeth removal with the likelihood of bone loss after surgery increased when the extractions are completed in people who are 25 years of age or older. (
  • Impacted wisdom teeth are classified by the direction and depth of impaction, the amount of available space for tooth eruption, and the amount of soft tissue or bone (or both) that covers them. (
  • More than 12,000 records included data on blood lead level and about 5,600 had dental caries examination data. (
  • Tooth decay was defined as the presence of one of more tooth surfaces affected by dental caries as determined by dental examiners using a standardized protocol. (

  • The objective of this study is to determine how effective the six-month regimen of herbal lollipops is at controlling the Streptococcus Mutans levels and the caries process in the study group. (
  • If some stabilization or improvement in the Streptococcus mutans levels and/or dental caries experience in the study group is shown, such promising results will allow for implementation of longer-term studies. (
  • Sensitivity and specificity were calculated to compare the pediatric primary care providers' screenings to the gold standard (pediatric dentist) in 3 categories: caries at the tooth level, caries at the patient level (1 or more affected teeth), and need for referral. (
  • Study question Does maternal smoking during pregnancy and exposure of infants to tobacco smoke at age 4 months increase the risk of caries in deciduous teeth? (
  • The main outcome measure was the incidence of caries in deciduous teeth, defined as at least one decayed, missing, or filled tooth assessed by qualified dentists without radiographs. (
  • 1 In developed countries, the prevalence of caries in deciduous teeth remains high (20.5% in children aged 2 to 5 years in the United States 2 and 25.0% in children aged 3 years in Japan), 3 and established measures for caries prevention in young children is limited to sugar restriction, oral fluoride supplementation, and fluoride varnish. (
  • Removal of impacted wisdom teeth is advised in the case of certain pathologies, such as nonrestorable caries or cysts. (
  • Thereby the sequence of events surrounding the biomarker and their role in Orthodontic tooth movement is substantially important. (
  • Young children with asthma who use drugs for their asthma are at higher risk for tooth decay. (
  • To determine if these or other factors could be driving a patient's higher risk for tooth decay, many dentists are now gathering more information about medications, family history or lifestyle habits. (
  • Using that information, they can introduce other measures for each patient that will lower their risk for tooth decay even more. (
  • SBSPs benefits exceed their costs when they target children at high risk for tooth decay. (
  • [ 1 ] Increasing sealant use prevalence is a national health goal [ 7 ] and the National Quality Forum* has endorsed dental care performance measures aimed at increasing sealant use prevalence in children at elevated risk for tooth decay. (
  • [ 6 ] A second, systematic review of economic evaluations of SBSP conducted for the Task Force found that the benefits of SBSP exceed their cost when they serve children at high risk for tooth decay, becoming cost-saving after 2 years [ 6 ] and saving $11.70 per tooth sealed over 4 years. (
  • Fluoride has been added to public drinking water in Canadian and American communities since the 1940s as a means of preventing tooth decay. (
  • We designated fective in preventing tooth decay. (
  • I still have my wisdom teeth they have come in crooked and I have many cavities around it. (
  • I think it might be one of my wisdom teeth that is dead. (
  • The last of the permanent teeth are the third molars or the wisdom teeth that begin to appear between ages 17 and 21 years. (
  • What this means is the presence of a root canal, wisdom teeth that were improperly removed, or a tooth that has been improperly capped. (
  • This left very less space for the wisdom teeth to erupt properly and hence these days we find that in most cases, the wisdom teeth either partially erupts or does not erupt at all. (
  • Impacted wisdom teeth is a disorder where the third molars (wisdom teeth) are prevented from erupting into the mouth. (
  • Completely unerupted wisdom teeth usually result in no symptoms, although they can sometimes develop cysts or neoplasms. (
  • Partially erupted wisdom teeth can develop cavities or pericoronitis. (
  • Wisdom teeth likely become impacted because of a mismatch between the size of the teeth and the size of the jaw. (
  • Impacted wisdom teeth can also be classified by the presence or absence of symptoms and disease. (
  • Screening for the presence of wisdom teeth often begins in late adolescence when a partially developed tooth may become impacted. (
  • Infection resulting from impacted wisdom teeth can be initially treated with antibiotics, local debridement or surgical removal of the gum overlying the tooth. (
  • A treatment controversy exists about the need for and timing of the removal of disease-free impacted wisdom teeth. (
  • Supporters of early removal cite the increasing risks for extraction over time and the costs of monitoring the wisdom teeth. (
  • Supporters for retaining wisdom teeth cite the risk and cost of unnecessary surgery. (
  • Wisdom teeth have been described in the ancient texts of Plato and Hippocrates, the works of Darwin and in the earliest manuals of operative dentistry. (
  • It was the meeting of sterile technique, radiology and anaesthesia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries that allowed the more routine management of impacted wisdom teeth. (
  • Wisdom teeth, as the last teeth to erupt in the mouth are the most likely to become impacted. (
  • The classification structure helps clinicians estimate the risks for impaction, infections and complications associated with wisdom teeth removal. (
  • One review found that 11% of wisdom teeth will have evidence of disease and are symptomatic, 0.6% will be symptomatic but have no disease, 51% will be asymptomatic but have disease present and 37% will be asymptomatic and have no disease. (
  • Impacted wisdom teeth are often described by the direction of their impaction (forward tilting, or mesioangular being the most common), the depth of impaction and the age of the patient as well as other factors such as pre-existing infection or the presence of pathology (cysts, tumors or other disease).

  • The pediatric dentist reported an average of 0.30 (SD: 0.005) cavitated teeth per child, whereas the pediatric primary care providers reported a mean of 0.25 (SD: 0.004). (
  • The pediatric dentist identified 80 (2.4%) teeth with cavitated carious lesions, whereas the pediatric primary care providers identified 64 (1.9%), 25 of which were false-positives. (

  • Looseness of teeth is caused by a disease of the periodontium and includes the tissues surrounding the teeth. (
  • It has been suggested that the anatomical characteristics of the peri-implant mucosa make it more prone to inflammatory changes when compared with gingival tissues around teeth, mainly due to poorer connective tissue attachment and reduced vascular supply. (
  • By examining tissues isolated from the jaws of embryonic mice, Mammoto and Ingber showed that when the compressed mesenchymal cells turn on genes that stimulate them to generate whole teeth composed of mineralized tissues, including dentin and enamel. (
