  • In addition to studies of health, bacteria in dental calculus also give us access to the ancient microbiome and may allow us to study migration and the interaction between people and populations. (york.ac.uk)
  • tooth
  • Certain types of chemicals called pyrophosphates help to decrease calculus buildup by stopping the growth of crystals on the tooth surface and preventing new crystals from forming. (hubpages.com)
  • Yes, Dear Readers, apparently when you floss your teeth, you rob future scientists of valuable information about your diet and general health because fossilized dental calculus (or plaque, or - to use the proper medical term - tooth gunk) can provide scientists with data which may help to identify and defeat diseases and reconstruct our dietary and health history.

  • Dental plaque is a biofilm that attaches to tooth surfaces, restorations and prosthetic appliances (including dentures and bridges) if left undisturbed. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, failure to remove plaque by regular tooth-brushing allows them to proliferate unchecked and thereby build up in a thick layer, which can by virtue of their ordinary metabolism cause any of various dental diseases for the host. (wikipedia.org)
  • Below is a summary of the bacteria that may be present during the phases of plaque maturation: Early biofilm: primarily Gram-positive cocci Older biofilm (3-4 days): increased numbers of filaments and fusiforms 4-9 days undisturbed: more complex flora with rods, filamentous forms 7-14 days: Vibrio species, spirochetes, more Gram-negative organisms Dental plaque is considered a biofilm adhered to the tooth surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • human
  • A major recent advancement in palaeomicrobial research has been the discovery that dental calculus acts as a long-term reservoir of high-quality biomolecules from human-associated microorganisms [ 35 - 39 ]. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • Although long-term consumption of marine resources is a rare find for this period and region, dental analysis of more skeletal finds could help reveal if it was common to early human diets. (phys.org)
  • Residue analysis of starch grain remains from grinding stones and human dental calculus shows that the people of Xinglonggou were primarily processing lily bulbs (Lilium), Chinese yam (Dioscorea polystachya), Trichosanthes kirilowii root, Job's tears, millet, and limited amounts of acorn and various Triticeae grasses. (wikipedia.org)
  • mouths
  • It has been reported that the microorganisms immediately after dental prophylaxis are mainly coccoidal organisms, which, in the mouths of some persons at least, change to filamentous organisms after a few days. (google.com)
  • starch
  • The recovery of starch granules from two wild grass groups in the dental calculus of the analysed individual, suggests that energy-rich plants were a part of the Holocene forager dietary habits in the region. (phys.org)
  • analysis
  • Mitochondrial haplogroup assignments were consistent with previously published findings, and additional comparative analysis of paired dental calculus and dentine from two individuals yielded equivalent haplotype results. (uzh.ch)
  • disease
  • Dental disease can also lead to excessive drooling, and the skin around the mouth can become infected, leading to more odor production. (wikipedia.org)

  • There are key nutrients to look for on the food label of dental diets which support dental health. (wikipedia.org)
  • It should be noted, that the positive effects of a kibble on feline dental health are achieved in dry pet food formulations, and are not exclusive to diets which focus on dental health. (wikipedia.org)
  • individuals
  • RESULTS: Full mitogenomes (7-34×) were successfully reconstructed from dental calculus for all six individuals, including three individuals who had previously tested negative for DNA preservation in bone using conventional PCR techniques. (uzh.ch)
  • Journal
  • In the Journal of the American Dental Association, it was speculated that this high rate of transmission was attributable to the crowding and poor diets faced by inmates. (wikipedia.org)
  • gingival
  • Bleeding on probing which is also known as bleeding gums or gingival bleeding is a term used by dentists and dental hygienists when referring to bleeding that is induced by gentle manipulation of the tissue at the depth of the gingival sulcus, or interface between the gingiva and a tooth. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alternatively, dental floss may also be used to assess the Gingival bleeding index. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • Following the war, a severe space shortage at the Dental School prompted the university to purchase the building in 1920 for use as a dental clinic and infirmary. (wikipedia.org)
  • In most cases, males with an X-linked form of this condition experience more severe dental abnormalities than affected females.Recent genetic studies suggest that the cause of a significant proportion of amelogenesis imperfecta cases remains to be discovered. (wikipedia.org)
  • Toothache is the most common type of orofacial pain and, when severe, it is considered a dental emergency, since there may be a significant impact on sleep, eating, and other daily activities. (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • Known then as the Infirmary Building, a 2,500-square-foot (230 m2) annex was erected in 1922 creating enough space in the building to hold 200 dental chairs. (wikipedia.org)

  • Complex
  • Toothache may be caused by dental (odontogenic) conditions (such as those involving the dentin-pulp complex or periodontium), or by non-dental (non-odontogenic) conditions (such as maxillary sinusitis or angina pectoris). (wikipedia.org)
