Authors: Mougeot JC, Stevens CB, Almon KG, Paster BJ, Lalla RV, Brennan MT, Mougeot FB Abstract Head and neck cancer (HNC) therapy often leads to caries development. Our goal was to characterize the oral microbiome of HNC patients who underwent radiation therapy (RT) at baseline (T0), and 6 (T6) and 18 (T18) months post-RT, and to determine if there was a relationship with increased caries. HOMINGS was used to determine the relative abundance (RA) of>600 bacterial species in oral samples of 31 HNC patients. The DMFS score was used to define patient groups with tooth decay increase (DMFS[+]) or no increase (...

Conclusion: Further efforts are required to spread awareness about oral health and encourage the UAE population to develop healthy oral habits. Such programs will decrease the occurrence and burden of many chronic oral diseases especially periodontal diseases. PMID: 30881996 [PubMed - in process]

Introduction:Dental caries and obesity are multifactorial diseases with diet being a common contributory factor. Many studies have reported varied outcomes about the association between dental caries and body mass index. But, there is no published study that investigates this association among female students in Tehran. The main aim of this study was to examine the relationship between dental caries and body mass index (BMI) in a sample of female students in Tehran.Methods:In this cross ‑sectional study, 416 students aged between 10 to 12 years was examined for dental caries using WHO standard diagnostic criteria. The De...

CONCLUSIONS: The evidence of lower bacterial diversity and differences in microbial profile for patients with Kostmann syndrome not only shows the impact of immune system-related diseases on oral microbiota, but also endorses the ecological plaque hypothesis proposed for the aetiology of oral diseases such as dental caries and periodontitis.

Abstract N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) and glucosamine (GlcN) enhance the competitiveness of the laboratory strain DL1 of Streptococcus gordonii against the caries pathogen Streptococcus mutans Here we examine how amino sugars affect the interaction of five low-passage clinical isolates of abundant commensal streptococci with S. mutans utilizing a dual-species biofilm model. Compared to glucose, growth on GlcN or GlcNAc significantly reduced the viability of S. mutans in co-cultures with most commensals, shifting the proportions of species. Consistent with these results, production of H2O2 was increased in most com...

The objective of this study was to fabricate and evaluate novel dental fillers using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology. Tinidazole (TNZ), a commonly used antibacterial drug in the dental clinic, was chosen as the model compound. Models of molars with carious cavities were obtained via 3D scanning. TNZ dental fillers were indirectly produced by thermal pressing using customized 3D printed molds. In addition, bio-relevant in vitro dissolution and mechanical testing methods were developed using customized 3D printed release and compression molds, respectively. It was observed that the formability, mechanical properties,...
