This study shows that children are still drinking too much sugar. In order to keep our kids healthy and our chronic disease rates and costs from skyrocketing, we need to reverse this trend,” said Flojaune Cofer, state policy director atPublic Health Advocates,  a California-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing policy solutions to emerging health issues. “The problem is especially severe among low-income communities, heightening the need for local and state policymakers to redouble efforts to protect these communities.”According toprevious research by Babey, one in three young adults in California ...

Authors: Dhamo B, Elezi B, Kragt L, Wolvius EB, Ongkosuwito EM Abstract Although a link between dietary changes, caries, and dental development has been observed, the literature provides little insight about this relationship. The aim of our study was to investigate the association between dental caries and dental development in a clinical sample of Albanian children and adolescents. In total, 118 children and adolescents, born between 1995 and 2004 and aged 6-15 years, were included. Dental caries in the deciduous dentition was assessed using the Decayed, Filled Teeth (dft) index and dental caries in the permanent...

ConclusionsLack of association between theENAM polymorphism (rs12640848) and dental caries in Czech children was detected.Clinical relevanceAlthoughENAM is considered as a candidate gene for dental caries, the presence of theENAM variant (rs12640848) cannot be used as a risk factor of this multifactorial disease in the Czech population.

FACTORS RELATED TO TOOTH LOSS AMONG INDUSTRIAL WORKERS IN PHATHUM THANI, THAILAND. Southeast Asian J Trop Med Public Health. 2017 Jan;48(1):253-64 Authors: Jaaidee J, Chatrchaiwiwatana S, Ratanasiri A Abstract Tooth loss is an important oral health problem among Thai people. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the prevalence of and factors associated with tooth loss among Thai industrial workers in order to apply preventive oral health programs to this population. The study consisted of 1,500 adults working in Nava Nakorn Industrial Estate, Pathum Thani Province, Thailand in 2014. Probability...

Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is a major component of the outer membranes of gram-negative bacteria associated with deep dental caries and pulpitis. When bacteria invade dentinal tubes and dentin is continually destroyed, tertiary dentin is formed by preexisting odontoblasts. However, the relationship between LPS and tertiary dentin formation remains unclear. We investigated whether LPS stimulation induces the formation of hard tissue in human dental pulp cells (hDPCs).

In this study, the authors compared the salivary flow rate in patients receiving 3DCRT and those receiving IMRT and evaluated the effect of their treatment satisfying the QUANTEC guidelines on hyposalivation. METHODS: The authors evaluated findings in 96 patients with HNC who received radiation therapy (RT); 20 received unilateral 3DCRT, 17 received bilateral 3DCRT, and 59 received IMRT. The authors measured stimulated whole saliva before radiation and 3 and 12 months after radiation. The authors defined hyposalivation as stimulated whole saliva less than 3.5 grams per 5 minutes. RESULTS: At 12 months, 50% and 54% ...

(New York University) School-based prevention programs can substantially reduce children's cavities -- but what type of treatment should be delivered in schools to best prevent tooth decay? A new study by researchers at NYU College of Dentistry, published in the journal BMC Oral Health, suggests that cavity prevention programs with a combination of prevention strategies may be more effective than one alone for reducing tooth decay.

In this study, deletion mutants of all three genes in the putative S. mutans trehalose utilization operon were characterized and shown to be required for wild-type levels of growth when trehalose was the only carbohydrate source provided. Interestingly, the TreR transcriptional regulator appeared to be critical for responding to oxidative stress, and for mounting a protective stress tolerance response following growth at moderately acidic pH. RNAseq of a treR deletion mutant suggested that in S. mutans, TreR acts as a trehalose-sensing activator of transcription of the tre operon, rather than a repressor, as described in o...

oto Numerous epidemiological and interventional clinical studies have consistently reported that black tea is good for human health. The polyphenolic compound, theaflavin, and its galloyl esters (theaflavins) are the primary red pigments in black tea that possess several health benefits, including fat-reducing and glucose-lowering capabilities and lifestyle-related disease prevention related to anti-obesity, anticancer, anti-atherosclerotic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, anti-osteoporotic, and anti-dental caries properties. These compounds are produced by key enzymes, such as polyphenol oxidase and perox...
